Violence and terrorism by the armed groups in our new Iraq after 2003 are one of the most serious problems faced by society in our contemporary history, which resulted in tens of thousands of victims of different sects and religions in Iraq. This phenomenon leads us stop and discuss, the violence has become a source of concern and the security, technical, social and political threat that we aspire to enjoy compared to the rest of the stable peoples (politically and economically).
