In this Tuesday, June 18, 2013 photo, Hussein al-Rubaie speaks to the Associated Press at Abu Nawas Street in Baghdad, Iraq. Hatreds between Shiites and Sunnis are now more virulent than ever in the Arab world because of Syria's brutal civil war. Hard-line clerics and politicians on both sides have added fuel, depicting the fight as essentially a war of survival for their sect. Al-Rubaie, 46, Shiite from eastern Baghdad, said he was a political prisoner for two years during Saddam's rule. He fled to Iraq's Kurdish region and later settled in Syria fearing further arrest."In Iraq, the political struggle has moved to the street and the religious groups are behind the sectarian tension taking place in the country. These groups and parties are part of the government." (AP Photo/ Karim Kadim)
