    Gentle Question for Shia

    BAGHDAD, April 6 (Reuters) - An influential Sunni Arab insurgent group, Islamic Army, has called on al Qaeda in Iraq to "review" its behaviour in what is evidence of a growing rift between home- grown insurgents and al Qaeda.

    "Killing Sunnis has become a legitimate target for them, especially rich ones. Either they pay them what Al Qaeda want or they kill them," the statement said.

    "They would kill any critic or whoever tries to show them their mistakes. Assaulting people's homes became permitted and calling people infidels also became popular."

    The growing tension coincides with a struggle for power between al Qaeda and traditionally minded Sunni tribal leaders who are angered by al Qaeda in Iraq's indiscriminate killing of civilians and severe interpretation of Sunni Islam.

    The group called on al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden to take more responsibility for al Qaeda in Iraq.

    "We also call ... on every Qaeda member in the Land of Mesopotamia to review themselves and their positions ... and for those who committed wrongful acts to repent quickly," the statement said.
