The al-Qaida terror group was behind last year's assassination of a leading Iraqi Shiite Muslim cleric, Ayatollah Mohammad Baqr al-Hakim, his brother said in remarks published Saturday.
Al-Qaida "wants to ignite sectarian conflict," Abdel Aziz al-Hakim told the pan-Arab newspaper Al Hayat in an interview. "We (in the Iraqi Governing Council) have intelligence proving that they are heading in this direction."
"Al-Qaida's ideology and attitude toward other Islamic sects are well known. There is lots of intelligence that proves the group is responsibile for the killing of al-Hakim," Abdel Aziz al-Hakim told the London-based newspaper.
Regarding the MKO's recent stances on Iraq and igniting sensitivity toward Shiites, it becomes clear that putting Shiite and Sunni against each other is the strategy of Israel in Iraq and now Al-Qaeda and MKO are the executors of this strategy.
