Shia Kurds told to leave Sadr city

This is curious. Hakim al-Zamili, the senior Sadrist who, quite unfortunately, chairs the Parliament security committee, told the press that Shia Kurds residing in Sadr city have received threatening phone calls telling them to leave the area.

Zamili then contradicts himself. On one hand says that the threats were made by groups that want to displace Kurds and commandeer their homes "like what happened to Christians." On the other hand he says those threats are not serious and are meant to make Sadr city look "unsafe, militia-infested."

This doesn't smell good. This guy is up to something.
