Shiite Muslims In Iraq

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
This engrossing documentary provides a historical overview of Shiites' religious suppression in Iraq-spanning 13 centuries-then enters the heart of Iraq's holy cities to see how Shiites initially react to recent spiritual liberties. It gives firsthand accounts of Saddam Hussein's merciless campaign against Shiites in Karbala during the Gulf War, and highlights the power struggle in Najaf's religious council. In addition, Shiites in the former capital city of Samarra make pilgrimages to honor Imam Muhammad Hasan al-Askari, who they believe will soon return, and those in Baghdad defend the Kadhimiya Mosque from what they feel is a growing American interference.
