Abstract

The article sheds light on the possibility of formation of Islamic Caliphate from the ruins of fragmented Middle East after a probable sectarian and ethnic clash which would be traced back to the imprudent policies adopted by the US after the 9/11, especially the invasion of Iraq in 2003, which also changed the map of Middle East.
