Mideast countries are criticizing Iraq as it hosts the Arab League summit Thursday.
Qatar said Iraq is pushing aside the country's Sunni population, raising more concerns over its close alliance with Shi'ite Iran.
Iraq's former prime minister also recently warned that Iran is "swallowing" his country. And the United States is ignoring it.
The Washington Times reports Ayad Allawi said Iran is mostly responsible for what he calls an "emerging dictatorship" in Iraq.
Attacks have rocked the country since U.S. troops pulled out last December.
Meanwhile, Iran's Shi'ite allies in Iraq are showing their strength. Iraqi judges have charged Iraq's vice president with terrorism against the Shi'ite population. Some say it's all politically motivated.
The summit opened on Thursday at a palace once used by dictator Saddam Hussein. Only 10 leaders from the 22-member Arab League were in attendance.
