Review of revision 1975633 [Not ready][edit]

  • "said to be oppressing" removed
  • "has led to fears" changed
  • "causing widespread Middle Eastern conflict" I don't understand why that's an issue. Clashes between Sunni, Shia, and (to a lesser extent) Kurdish people has been one of the root causes of conflict. It's mentioned in three of the sources, but, if need be, I could bring in hundreds of background sources for just that one statement. Sunni and Shia Muslims have had a history of conflict. That is one of the bases for the current Middle East situation.
  • "bolstered by the Syrian civil war" removed

I've made a number of extensive changes, and am consequently disqualified from review.
My hope is that perhaps the changes I've made may be useful in illustrating some of the problems that existed and how they might have been approached differently.
Because I was concentrating on details as I entered the source-check, I'm aware of having lost track of the big picture of this story, and am now saturated; I fear the article may not do well at portraying the story as a whole, but I can't tell atm; and I fear I'm also too close to see whether I've introduced new problems. Which is part of why extensive involvement in an article disqualifies a reviewer from reviewing it. --Pi zero (talk) 00:32, 27 August 2013 (UTC)Reply
Pi, thanks for helping out. I'm sure someone will review it soon. I hope so at least. From where I stand, it looks very good and does a good job summarizing the picture. Thanks, Theonesean (talk) 02:16, 27 August 2013 (UTC)Reply
