ISIS COMES TO THE “ARAB SPRING”; KURDS ON THE HORNS OF A DILEMMA

I’m going to let you in on the joke.  “Ayn Al-‘Arab” means “Arab Spring”.  The word “spring” here, of course, refers to a water spring – not the season of Spring.  It’s also the place called Kobaani by the Kurds.  It’s the place that’s become famous for the recent ISIS assault on this city straddling the Syrian-Turk border.  Poor Kurds.  Their leaders are either wishy-washy wankers like Masoud Barzaani, whose only purpose in life appears to be pumping oil and hot air in Iraq’s northern Kurdistan; or convicts languishing on pristine island prisons famous for very limited accommodations and a dearth of wide-screen televisions, like Abdullah Ocalan.  It’s bad enough you can’t get anybody to acquiesce to your vision of a Kurdish nation state – but – imagine how exasperating it is when the only defenders of Kobaani happen to be the PKK, Kurdistan Workers’ Party – a militia designated “terrorist” by the USA and its allies, not to mention the malicious Erdoghani Turks.  What’s a Kurd to do when it’s terrorist vs. terrorist?

      Masoud Barzini (Ooops! I mean, Barzani, sorry) about to unleash a torrent of hot air for which he’s famous

 

Well, the Kurds are doing, as always, everything they shouldn’t.  They are demanding increased and more effective U.S. air strikes against ISIS which is, evidently, already inside Kobaani.  They are also demanding assistance from Turkey. Ha. Ha. What a joke!  The same Turkey, by the way, which views the creation of a Kurdish state on the same plain as the devolution of earthly existence into the tightening sphincter of oblivion.  And, the U.S. is loath to help a group it views as “terrorist” to defeat another “terrorist” group.  Forget the Turks! What’s a Yank to do?

The Kurds think just like Palestinians.  There are similarities.  Both are Third World peoples bent on outstripping the Jews for the Most Victimized People Award.  And, just like the Jews, but, less successfully, they are determined to win their award through the good offices of NATO, the U.S.A. and all the other nogoodniks who spend their waking hours concocting ways to frustrate their hopes, dash their dreams, squelch their aspirations and – (a big “AND” here) – all the while currying favor with the well-heeled Jews of North America and Europe.

The Kurds of Syria have for many decades fought a losing battle for Syrian citizenship.  They were finally granted citizenship by Dr. Assad.  Do you think they would liaise with the Syrian Army in order to blunt the ISIS assault?  No!  That would be too easy.  Do you think they would have figured out, by now, that Erdoghan’s overtures to them were merely a stratagem to secure their marginalization as he continued his criminal aggression against Syria?  No.  That would be too simple to work out intellectually.  (Aren’t the Turks supposed to be stupid, anyways?)  Do you think they might connect with both Iran and Russia to see if those two countries might give more sincere assistance in the fight against a sociopathic movement like ISIS which was created, in the first place, by NATO, the U.S. and its simian allies in Arabia and Qatar? No. That too, would be too facile.

Iran and Russia?  It’s a fact that Kurds speak a language derived from Farsi.  While many Kurds were forced to learn Turkish in order to earn their place in the vacuous traditions of Central Asian hordes who made their way into Hellenic and Armenian Anatolia, they mostly have no difficulty adjusting to Farsi with many of their luminaries, like Hoshyar Zibari, speaking it fluently.  The Persians don’t oppress Kurds. The Persians don’t deny Kurds the right to broadcast in their language or teach it in their own schools.  Yet, like the Palestinians, Kurds continually gravitate to the grittier side of the tracks.

Russia? Former Soviet Union. It’s no secret the PKK is left-leaning, socialistic and, even, communist.  True. Russia has left that particular kind of scientific socialism in order to better the life of the average Russian through cut-throat capitalistic practices and Dickensian/Malthusian sociology.  But, at the very least, Russia is connected to communist China – another also-ran which switched gender to become an “economic powerhouse”.  While it’s hard to reconcile the former personalities of these two powerful members of the U.N.S.C., it’s not hard to figure that they might have fewer misgivings about helping the downtrodden Kurds to fend off a grotesque population of murdering rodents like those of ISIS since they too face similar fanatics in their own lands, e.g. Chechens and Uighers.

Mesut Kiryilan, who heads the PKK, has to take the dilemma by the horns and do the following:  he must reduce Abdullah Ocalan to the status of an aging and pitiful mafia boss who will never see the light of day as he lounges in his cell on Imrali Island. Kiryilan must never forget that Ocalan ordered the assassination of Sakine Cansiz in Paris with the help of both Erdoghan and Hollande.  He ordered her killed because she was about to reveal, in Germany, Ocalan’s collusion in a plan to emasculate the Kurdish Liberation Movement.  Don’t forget, Ocalan’s mother was a Turk – or so he told his Turk captors as he was spirited out of Africa to face charges in Ankara.

I don’t want to sound caustic and cynical.  I don’t want to seem heartless.  I feel for Palestinians (my mother was born in Jaffa, Palestine) and I have lived with their tragedy all of my life.  Yet, whenever I have to sit down and think of how these victimized peoples conduct their affairs, whether socially, politically or economically, and I learn they continually select the most inapt solutions for their problems – how they befriend those who are most inimical to their aspirations – or how they develop societies based on corruption and open embezzlement – how they accept the kakocracies which they helped to found and how they erect sacred images of those same degenerates who have cheated and misled them for decades —-I have no sympathy for them.  When I think of Mahmoud ‘Abbaas leading the Palestinians, like sheep, to the slaughterhouse where the butchers are the European Jews who also went to their own Konzentrazionlagern in another time, or of the Kurds facing extinction because they relied on their own Quislings, I can only shrug my shoulders, fasten my coat buttons, and wait for the end of the “Arab Spring”. ZAF

Well, thats sounds a bit harsh really. I am from Holland and dont know a lot about the Kurds. But I am appalled by the brutality of the Rat Army and I think the Kurds must be helped in the war against them. The Syrian government should not allow any of its citizens to be massacred by the Rats, including the Kurds, who got citizenship by Dr. Assad himself as you said, Dear Ziad, please dont write such heartless things on your blog, which I have followed for a few years now. It is a nightmare for these Kurds right… Read more »

I am realizing that multiple big powers are all in favor of genocide — of Kurds, Christians, Yazidi’s, Alawites, Shiites…

Is it something political? To make way for an oil pipeline? I don’t pretend to know.

I am totally convinced that Turkey is completely aligned with ISIS, and the major power allies of Turkey seem to be on board too because they’re doing nothing about it.

International lawyer Barry Grossman says fighting against ISIL is a pretext for the United States to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Balkanize Syria and Iraq. “Conventional military wisdom since Vietnam recognizes that the battle against ISIS (or ISIL) cannot be won with airstrikes; but it is also clear that the political moves underway in favor of war, in favor of military intervention, are less concerned with ISIS than with advancing the project to Balkanize Syria and Iraq, while toppling President Assad in the process,” he told Press TV on Tuesday. what do you think of syria’s prospects of avoiding… Read more »

Kurds unleash anger as Turkey fails to intervene against ISIL There have been violent clashes throughout Turkey as Kurdish demonstrators denounce the government’s refusal to intervene militarily to stop the Syrian border town of Kobani falling into the hands of ISIL jihadists. From Diyabakir in the east to the capital Ankara, Istanbul and elsewhere, Kurds are unleashing anger fuelled by their suspicions that Turkey is actually supporting the Sunni Muslim militants. Turkey strongly denies this but so far has made no move to get involved in fighting to save the Kurdish town on its frontier. Injuries and at least one… Read more »

A tough subject indeed, there are many ways to simphatize with the Kurds or just the opositive, Ziad layed down quite well the Kurds dilemma: Internal struggle between the many Kurd parties, for instance, the PKD in Iraq simply hates YPG, the PKK helped both PKD and YPG when they needed but it was a mild help and not vocal since the PKK has sold its soul in Turkey to Erdogan. The mess continues when we think that the long awaited Syrian citizenship was given, the Syrian Kurds accepted and turned their back to Syria and Assad. I have to… Read more »

The official position of the Syrian government through a minister shows that it is difficult to help Syrian citizens Kobane, its proximity to the Turkish border endangers the SAAF aircraft: “Ali Haidar,Syria’s State Minister for National Reconciliation, said in an exclusive interview with Rudaw that his government could not help stop the Islamic State’s (IS/ ISIS) onslaught against the Kurdish city of Kobane because of a stand-off with Turkey near the border. “Our air force could not fly there close to their borders,” he said….” http://rudaw.net/english/interview/29092014 ArkLight mention that although this, was raids of SAAF; in any case it is… Read more »

The same missile used in Israeli Iron Dome system. US has now ceased all air operations because of a plot by traitors within the US Military, Air Force a retired General affiliated with Fox News and some affiliated with Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News.

The biggest mistake of the Palestinians has been continuously demanding an independent state within the 1967 borders. They should have learned from the South African experience and realized that their best option (and narrative) was demanding the end of Israeli apartheid, equal rights and citizenship within a single state for both Israeli’s and Palestinians. The Israelies are powerless in the face of such a movement.

One problem they had was that every time the Syrian army would move towards the 45 buildings in the area, al Nusra would throw children and women off the 8-story high rooftops. Human shields was one key strategy of their enemy.

It is both understandable and natural for the Kurds to want their own state. It is also both understandable and natural for states to not want to cede their territory to independence movements. And Kurds are not alone in these territories- with many of their neighbors of different ethnicities not wanting to form a Kurdish state or secede. There have been many bloody wars in Turkey, Iraq, and Iran over this Kurdish ambition. However natural it has been destructive. But the way I see it, the Kurds ambitions of late seem more towards some kind of autonomy within a federated… Read more »

I’m trying to remain fair and objective. But, I view treachery as a very serious crime! Ultimately I hope Syrians and Syria ethnic Kurds can band together and fight off the Isis/Isil Horde, but treachery is inexcusable! If this article is true then I… Read more »

The German policy and economic adviser Michael Luders in an interview with Radio Bremen about Turkey´s role in Syria and its intended buffer zone. Translated by Liveleak user DieKurden Radio Bremen: Mr. Luders, when will Turkey intervene? Michael Luders: First of all, Turkey won´t intervene because the current situation is what the Turkish government exactly wants: The Islamic State fights the Kurds in northern Syria at the Turkish border and ends thus the Kurdish dream of more autonomy and independence in Syria. At the same time, the Kurdish fighters in northern Syria are close allies of the Kurdistan Workers´ Party… Read more »

Kurds major problem in Syria is that Assad have given them citizenship and they have sit on the sidelines since the conflict began ,and have only shown interest in to take advantage of the Terrorist invasion of Syria to illegally steal Syrian territory . they were hoping that FSA and Alnusra and ISIS will just ignore them. Intead of integrating the Syrian Society and become part of it.. they have chose a hostile political path of seeking to take lands from Syria , in hopes to create again a territory that only existed a thousand years ago and it was… Read more »

The Empire has got arabs killing arabs and africans killing africans ‘wholesale’ with a dash of ebola thrown in, all very nice for Western control, consolidation and profits! ALL people in these 2 regions would benefit overnight if they united and ejected all western corporations and military bases. If only they would stop killing each other, respect their neighbours, sit down and THINK.

Phoney war – more proof!
Kurdish officials say airstrikes carried out by the US-led coalition against ISIL positions in Syria are not working. “There’s a valley to the south-west of Kobani that had 2,000 ISIL vehicles in it for 11 days, yet the Americans have never targeted them. It’s as if they only want to scare them or do a little damage!” [LOL!] said Ahmed Shekho, the head of the Syrian Kurdish students union.

From the very first moment of this conflict in Syria i believed that the only way to preserve a secular , democratic and growth promoting country is to fight together with SAA and NDF. These are the people who respect all traditions in Syria and fight to preserve the rich history of this great country. Unfortunately some thought that they could take advantadge of the situation and promote their own agenda….gambling…with their own lives… There is no room for ‘independent’ and self-promoting paths in this struggle There is no other force to trust but the official SAA. May SAA prevail… Read more »
