Iraq jihadists ‘selling oil to Assad’, says France

An image uploaded on June 14, 2014 on the jihadist website Welayat Salahuddin allegedly shows militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) driving on a street at unknown location in the Salaheddin provinceFrench Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Monday that jihadists spearheading a militant offensive in Iraq have sold oil from captured areas to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Fabius said the sale was evidence of the "confusing" nature of the escalating conflict in the Middle East in which Assad and the jihadists are in theory on opposing sides. The rebels, previously known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), declared a "caliphate", or Islamist state, straddling Iraq and Syria at the weekend.


Iran wrestles with tough choices in Iraq

By Parisa Hafezi and Arshad Mohammed ANKARA/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Iran is wrestling with a complex array of historic alliances and enmities as it tries to develop a coherent response to the swift advance of hostile Sunni Muslim militants in neighboring Iraq. Despairing of its protege Nuri al-Maliki, Tehran’s Shi’ite clerical establishment has sent mixed messages on working with the Iraqi prime minister’s other sponsor, the United States, with which it shares a goal of averting the country’s break-up. After decades competing with Washington’s Sunni Arab allies for influence, it hopes for relief from U.S. sanctions by cutting a deal on its nuclear program in the next few weeks and wants to avoid its defense of non-Sunni forces in Baghdad, Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere fuelling a sectarian regional war. “For Iran always, national interests have priority over religious divides,” said a senior official close to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
