Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, will be here on Sunday. Many Iraqis are left wondering why no Arab head of states have visited the largely Arab nation of Iraq since the fall of Saddam Hussein.
The country, still largely controlled and secured by the United States. is largely ignored by their Arab counterparts. Ahmadinejad will be the first regional head of state to visit Iraq.
Abdul Kareem al Samarai, a Sunni cleric, had this to say during his Friday sermon.
"I have a message to the Arab leaders, where are you? Where are your ambassadors?" he asked.
