Salam Alaykum,

Interesting article about the standing of Shia parties in Karbala.

http://www.niqash.org/en/articles/politics/5832/voters-against-mixing-religion-politics-in-one-of-iraq-s-holiest-cities.htm

As discussed elsewhere with regards to other Shia nations like Iran, the article points out: "Additionally some locals even blame the Islamic parties for an increase in atheism among Iraq’s youth. They have lost their faith as they see parties with a religious foundation become involved in corruption and mismanagement."

The religious 12er Shia politicians have robbed their own people. This 12er at my previous job said they don't even maintain the shrines, and he went as far as saying Sadaam's rule at least had everything in control.
