When the police increase the pressure on criminals, they often ally each 
other. Or they do it when a new strong player show up.

I think they will hate Iraqi even more than before, if they are 
successful in keeping them a bay.
Persians consider themselves superior to Arabs and having Iraq on the 
border with a democracy (how much imperfect it could be) where they have 
a theocracy must be a huge PITA for them.

Given the pressure to pass a death penalty for apostates, I must suppose 
that the number of people disaffected with Islam and moving to 
Christianity and other religions or no religion must be large.

People using violence to stay in power must be very afraid to lose the 
power, as they feel that what they did will be served to them in spades.
