    Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said he has agreed to leave office and clear the way for his designated successor to take over.

    The move ends a political impasse and may enable Prime Minister-designate Haidar al-Abadi to pull together a more inclusive government better able to counter Islamist militants advancing in the country’s north, and to heal sectarian and ethnic rifts threatening to tear Iraq apart.

    “In order to ease the political process and the formation of the new government I announce in front of you today that I am withdrawing my bid for prime minister,” Maliki said in a televised address late last night with Abadi standing at his side.

    As forces of the Islamic State pushed into new areas of northern Iraq, they seized towns and a major dam near the city of Mosul, and sent thousands of members of ethnic Yezidis and Christians fleeing onto the exposed slopes of Mount Sinjar. The chaos loosened Maliki’s grip on power, as even some past allies blamed him for the political stalemate that let the Sunni militants advance.

    With Iraqi warplanes striking Islamist militant positions in the western city of Fallujah after a series of raids by American fighter jets on the insurgents in the north, Maliki’s Dawa party urged political leaders to replace the premier.
    Minority Shiites

    Maliki’s Shiite-dominated administration is accused by minority Sunnis of alienating their community, some of whom swung behind the Islamic State as it began a major offensive in early June.
    Maliki said last night that he didn’t want to be the reason for a drop of blood to be spilled and called on other lawmakers to back [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]’s constitution as they confronted the terror group. Referring to Abadi by name, he said the decision was “for the higher benefit of the country.”

    Obama said yesterday that U.S. warplanes and ground advisers had helped break the siege of the Yezidis.

    “Because of these efforts, we do not expect there to be an additional operation to evacuate people off the mountain,” he said. “And it’s unlikely that we’re going to need to continue humanitarian air drops.”

    Still, the “situation remains dire for Iraqis subject to ISIL’s terror throughout the country,” Obama said, referring to the jihadist group that now calls itself the Islamic State. “It also includes many Sunnis, Shia, and Kurds.”

    ‘Inclusive’ Government
    Abadi, who was born in 1952, has until mid-September to form a cabinet for what the U.S. says should be an “inclusive” government that can reverse sectarian measures imposed by Maliki that fueled Sunni support for Islamic State, as well as Kurdish threats of independence for their region.

    Abadi’s nomination has had the unusual effect of drawing support both from the U.S. and from neighboring [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], which has major influence over Iraq’s Shiites and funds several Shiite militia groups. The European Union and the Arab League have also backed Abadi’s appointment.

    EU foreign ministers will be seeking signs of greater unity when they meet today in Brussels to discuss Iraq and Ukraine.

    Still a Shiite leader, just one that hopefully can bring united feelings and of coarse deal with the KURDS.
