ABSTRACT
The article discusses the comeback of the Islamist terror group Al-Qaeda at the beginning of 2014 by seizing control of Ramadi and Fallujah in Iraq with the help of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (Isis). It also discusses how Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki's repression has conversely empowered Al-Qaeda, and what the quick take-over of Fallujah by the Isis indicates. Particular focus is given to the clashing tensions between the Shia-dominated government and Iraq's Sunni Muslims.
