...violence & sectarian conflict
01/11/2007

Since the bombing on sacred Shiite mosque in February 2006, the violence & strife between different sects have increased thus resulting in mass internal migration. As per NY Times, more than 170,000 families (almost 2.2 million persons) have left their hometowns in search for a better life. Although the migrants consists of people from almost every income level, sect & religion, the worst sufferers are poor Iraqi villagers (650,000) who have to leave everything they owned & take shelter in camps or urban slums. The ethnic clashes are forcing many to even flee from their homes and take shelter in Jordan & Syria, even though many have been forced to return in search of job, shelter and food. Surveys by the UN reveal that about 63% Iraqis fled because of threat to their lives, while 25% because their homes were destroyed. Moreover, only 23% of allocated $85 million meant for aiding displaced people reached the officials in 2007. This mixed population migration to cities can lead to further conflicts between different sects. With province governors blocking the entry of migrants and further denying them access to food and education, the situation can only worsen in the times to come. Yet if one still has to seek a brighter side, abject poverty and fear of life have at least made the common Iraqi forget ethnicity for sometime.
