University Express: Iraq in Fragments Saudi Arabia & Iran Presentation.

Iraq:  A Divided Future? The current crisis in Iraq can be understood in terms of its history and its mosaic of different religions, tribes, and languages.  Learn about diversity in Islam and differences among sects such as Sunnis, Shias, and Kurds.  We’ll discuss the continuing impact of colonialism, and how borderlines of Iraq and other Middle Eastern nations were drawn.  Will Iraq’s future include different regions segregated by ethnicity and religion, or will it remain a united country with peaceful co-existence?
