Nuclear agreement will fuel religious war

There is also a dark side to the widely acclaimed nuclear agreement between the five UN veto powers, Germany and Iran, the centre-right daily Berlingske notes: "The biggest problem is that with its huge reserves of oil and natural gas, Iran will become a rich major power in its own right. We're already seeing the start of that now that it has access to 110 billion euros in frozen accounts. Iran's support for Shiite Muslims in Iraq, Syria and Yemen will increase, and the nuclear agreement seals the fate of these countries. Bearing in mind developments to date it's safe to assume that the religious wars between Sunnis and Shiites will explode."
