Iraq Link of the Day: The Association of Muslim Scholars, Main Sunni Socio-Political Organization

The Association of Muslim Scholars, headed by the al-Azhar University-educated Shaykh Harith Sulayman al-Dhari, is the most influential Sunni socio-political organization in Iraq made up off Sunni religious leaders. Allegedly the AMS maintains ties to various Sunni insurgent groups though the organization itself has not participated in violence.

For an excellent article on the AMS, see: http://www.merip.org/mer/mer237/meijer.html
