Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki has said that the Arab Spring has turned into a curse and catastrophe for the entire Arab nation. Speaking at a ceremony to mark Police Day, Al-Maliki described the revolutions across the region as an "epidemic" that will attack all who haven't yet been touched by them.
Al-Maliki called on the entities that support, finance and protect terrorists to stop what they are doing. "The terror they back will harm them as well eventually," he claimed. Terrorist groups, he added, have become tools used by others in corrupt countries, based on corrupt ideas.
"In the same context," he pointed out, "Iraq is in a sacred war against the most evil people on earth; those who violate human lives and dignity."
