KURDS GO TO THE POLLS TOMORROW

A new day for the Kurdish Independent movement starts tomorrow. Voting for independence is a long time coming. The Kurds, numbering 30 million have been subjugated to the likes or dislikes of their home countries over the past centuries; Syria, Iraq, Iran, Turkey are now coming face to face with the grave divisional error of the Sykes-Picot agreement ending WWI.

The Kurds

As originally cast, Sykes-Picot allocated part of Northern Kurdistan and a substantial part of the Mosul vilayet including the city of Mosul to France in area B, Russia obtained Bitlis and Van in Northern Kurdistan (the contemplated Arab State included Kurds in its Eastern limit split between A and B areas). Bowman says there were around 2.5 million Kurds in Turkey, mainly in the mountain region called Kurdistan. The Kurdish Peoples doesnt have any own State since the fall of the Zand dynasty

Partitioning of Ottoman Turkey according to the aborted Treaty of Sèvres

Sharif Pasha presented a “Memorandum on the Claims of the Kurd People” to the Paris peace Conference in 1919 and the suppressed report of the King-Crane Commission also recommended a form of autonomy in“the natural geographical area which lies between the proposed Armenia on the north and Mesopotamia on the south, with the divide between the Euphrates and the Tigris as the western boundary, and the Persian frontier as the eastern boundary.”

The subsequent Treaty of Sevres potentially provided for a Kurdish territory subject to a referendum and League of Nations sanction within a year of the treaty. However the Turkish War of Independence led to the treaty being superseded by the Treaty of Lausanne in which there was no provision for a Kurdish State.

The end result was that the Kurds were included in the territories of Turkey, Iraq, Syria and Iran.

Tens of thousands packed a rally in Erbil’s stadium on Friday, waving a sea of Kurdish flags. Among them were also Israeli flags, a display of affection for the one country that has openly supported the referendum.

Some Kurds say this moment is their 1948 – a reference to Israel’s declaration of independence. They see the challenges Israel faced in its early years as similar to the problems their region now faces.

Iran, Turkey, the Iraqi government in Baghdad, the US, UK, the UN and many other countries have pressured the Kurdish leadership to cancel or postpone the vote. Even up to the eleventh hour the pressure continues, with the UN Security Council expressing concern about the vote and US presidential envoy for the coalition to counter the Islamic State Brett McGurk encouraging Barzani to reconsider.

“There is no Iraq, it is a militia state,” says Hussein Yazdanpanah, a leader of the Kurdistan Freedom Party (PAK), who serves a front line commander northwest of Kirkuk.

Yazdanpanah’s Peshmerga soldiers are Iranian Kurds who oppose the regime at home and have come to the Kurdish region of Iraq to fight alongside their comrades against the common threat of the Islamic State. His men have been holding a front line for three years on a line of dusty hills that overlooks Hawija, where the Iraqi army launched an offensive on September 20.

“Iran, Iraq and Turkey do propaganda against the referendum,” he says, sitting in a chair that overlooks the flat plains around Kirkuk. “Kurdistan has enemies, but also friends. The most important thing you see here is that we have all the minorities and ethnicities [and they] want a referendum. Kurds decided not to stay with this country [Iraq] which has discrimination and inequality.”

SUPPORT THE KURDISH INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT

The bully diminutive Erdogan running Turkey has been flying to close to the sun of late.  His accusations have developed an anti-American thrall across Anatolia. The hyperbolic diatribe spewing out of the mouth of this wannabee dictator is a cause of concern to NATO. Europe has long been aware of Turkey’s anti European Union policies which are tantamount to treason. So far the United States has not taken an intransigent view of Turkey’s blustering when a hard stance is in order.

Turkey, if you recall was the heart of Eastern Christendom a thousand plus years ago. Constantinople was the center of Eastern Orthodoxy. From the mid-5th century to the early 13th century, Constantinople was the largest and wealthiest city in Europe and it was instrumental in the advancement of Christianity during Roman and Byzantine times as the home of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople and as the guardian of Christendom’s holiest relics such as the Crown of Thorns and the True Cross. After the final loss of its provinces in the early 15th century, the Byzantine Empire was reduced to just Constantinople and its environs and the city eventually fell to the Ottomans after a month-long siege in 1453.

Long running feuds aside, the time has come to take sides. Is Turkey in or out? The only answer here is OUT. Turkey has accused the United States of complicity in the most recent coup d etat which attempted to over through Erdogan. Turkey has blamed us for harboring Fethullah Gulen, once a friend of Erdogan, but now seen as a treacherous enemy; believed to be directing his followers from his Pennsylvania enclave. Erdogan has the chutzpah in ordering the United States to turn Gulen over. Once in Turkey Gulen will face the hang man’s noose or more precisely Erdogan’s sword for beheading.

Turkey has inflamed the European Union (EU) with its dictatorial posture, but most of all its lack of respect for Democracy. Since the coup the diminutive wannabee Napoleon puke has rounded up a half a million of what he believes, were members of the coup and anti government. Beside these roundups 200 news organizations have been shut down. Currently there are no opposing news organizations.

However, the mother of all eruptions is close at hand. Support for an independence Kurdistan is growing across all of the main venues. Even Israel is pressing for Kurdish independence. The Kurds are the majority population in the autonomous region of Iraqi Kurdistan, and are a significant minority group in the neighboring countries of Turkey, Iran, and Syria, where Kurdish nationalist movements continue to pursue greater autonomy and cultural rights. In total the Kurds number approximately 30,000,000. The time has come for them to have a country of their own.

On September 25 a plebiscite will take place in the Kurdistan region of Iraq.

Councillors in the Iraqi province of Kirkuk have voted to take part in next month’s Kurdish independence referendum in a session, however, that was boycotted by Turkmen and Arab members. The central government in Baghdad is strongly opposed to Iraqi Kurdistan’s planned September 25 referendum, which is non-binding but could lead to independence. Kirkuk, an ethnically-mixed oil-rich province, is not part of the Kurdistan region but has a large Kurdish population.

Having an Independent Kurdish state is very worrisome for the diminutive Erdogan who will continue to fight against the Kurds at all costs. Erdogan sees the Kurds as an existential threat to his authoritative rule.  In Turkey, there are 14 million Kurds, many of whom are well-integrated into the political and economic life of the country, but many others who remain alienated. Religious Kurds have been an important and reliable constituency for the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). There is also the People’s Democratic Party, or HDP, whose leader Selahattin Demirtas has made a big splash among Western observers for his alleged liberalism. The AKP has sought to portray the HDP and Demirtas as no different from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) that has been waging a war on Turkey since the mid-1980s. Click here for a more detailed analysis of the ins and outs of the Kurdish relationships within Syria, Iraq and Turkey.

Peshmerga, which means, “those who face death,” is the military of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and Iraqi Kurdistan. Their existence dates back to the mid-20th Century when Mustafa Barzani picked up arms to fight for Kurdistan autonomy.

But the tradition of a guerrilla resistance force fighting for Kurdish autonomy goes back to the origins of the Kurdish people. Because the land area has always been subject to regional and major powers vying for dominance, a resistance force always emerged as they took refuge in the mountains.

Up against much greater forces in the Iraqi Army and Air Force, the Peshmerga was not successful until after the 1990-1991 Gulf War when the U.S. and U.K. enforced a no-fly zone in the North of Iraq.

After the Kurdistan Regional Government was established, the Peshmerga officially became the armed forces and responsible for the security of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq.

Originally, the Peshmerga was led by Mustafa Barzani, the head of the Kurdish Democratic Party (KDP), but in the aftermath of another failed revolt, which resulted in the defeat of the Peshmerga by Iraqi forces in the mid-1970’s, the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) arose and formed their own Peshmerga.

The ideological split along both tribal (Barzani family) and political (PUK is more progressive and liberal) lines divided Kurds, and eventually led to the Kurdish Civil War of the 1990’s. During the Civil War, the Peshmerga took sides and opposing forces were responsible for Kurds killing and maiming other Kurds. It ended when KDP’s Head, Massoud Barzani, signed a peace treaty with the PUK Head, Jalal Talibani.

According to the 1992 Constitution of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), the President of Kurdistan is the Commander-in-Chief of the Peshmerga Armed Forces.[1] In an effort to unite against the Islamic State in August 2014, KRG President Massoud Barzani issued orders to the Ministry of Peshmerga Affairs to reform the Peshmerga under a unified single command structure.

The bottom line here comes down to the diminutive Erdogan who may up the ante and pick a fight with the Peshmerga on the Syrian border. This will cause a rift with the United States, although the United States hasn’t jumped into the fray hook line and sinker. But the battle we hope will not come is on our door step and can’t be denied. For the United States the battle lines are clear; boot Turkey from NATO before we suffer more humiliation from the the diminutive Erdogan.

Turkey is against the United States, the Kurds are for the United States. 

MOHAMMAD STRIKES AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN – NO ONE IS SAFE FROM DAESH

Until the last Mohammad is put to death no one is exempt from the terrorism of the savage Islamist. Global Jihadist can strike at any moment and anywhere; no one is safe. Long held beliefs that the West is responsible (Christianity) for their predicament and Jews are the Satanic Devils as taught in Madrassas .  BANGLADESH the most recent target of Islamic wrath -seems you can’t take the BANG out of Bangladesh. 

Among the dead from Friday’s attack, the police said, were nine Italians, seven Japanese, two Bangladeshis, one American and one Indian.

The attack also suggests that Bangladesh’s militant networks are internationalizing, a key concern as the United States seeks to contain the growth of the Islamic State.

But wait, Iraq is never out of the news. The 4th of July came a day early to Shia. Bombs away in Baghdad.

DEADLY DAY IN BAGHDAD

IS bombing kills 125 in Baghdad

At least 125 people are killed and many more injured in an explosion claimed by the Islamic State group in Baghdad, Iraqi police say.

MIDDLE EAST

BAGHDAD: At least 91 killed, 170 wounded in separate bombings across Iraqi capital

The deadliest attack took place in the central Karada district of Baghdad, where a suicide bomber blew up his explosives-laded pickup truck outside a crowded shopping center, killing at least 86 people and wounding up to 170 others, according to a police officer. He said the dead included 15 children, 10 women and six policemen.

ISIS cannibals wreck havoc across the globe continuing their attacks against those who don’t follow Sharia Law. 

IMAM – “GAYS MUST BE KILLED OUT OF COMPASSION”

FROM  pjmedia.com 

Time for the LGBT community to wake up to the threat brought on by the Obama/Clinton Axis. The are responsible for saturating our communities with mosques (masjids) plus welcoming in millions of Islamic terrorists into America. These ISIS commandos are the enemy of the LGBT Rainbow Coalition. Time for them to wake up to this existential threat that they are now facing in the Heart Land of America. 

All gays must be killed out of compassion.”

A RELIGION OF PEACE

Truck bomb takes out 50 in Baghdad. ISIS takes credit. Of course Islam is a religion of peace. Don’t tell us that they don’t worship the same GOD. ISIS controls large swaths of Iraq and neighboring Syria. According to United Nations figures, at least 670 Iraqis were killed last month due to ongoing violence, of whom about two-thirds were civilians. Obama relishes this kind of mass murder; why else does he stand by watching from the sidelines.?

TRADITIONS BY MICHAEL OBERNDORF

Traditions

Traditionally – and I use this term, even though tradition has become a dirty word to the left – traditionally, when your economy is going south on you, or there is political unrest at home that threatens to remove you from power, traditionally, those in power start a war. We have seen this happen time and time again throughout history, all over the world. We are very likely to see it again. Soon.

The Ayatollah al Obozo and his unindicted co-conspirators in his administration and the corrupt, parasitic institution that is Congress, have managed to set the world back, peacewise, to a time that resembles the days leading up to damn near every war in recorded history. Their meddling in the Middle East has created massive instability that has allowed insanely zealous barbarians like ISIS to arise and metastasize in an epidemic worse than Ebola. Meanwhile, as both Russia and China have thrown caution to the wind and have been going full speed ahead with military improvement and expansion, al Obozo has been hell-bent on cutting and demoralizing ours. Traditionally, Obozo’s actions are called treason, but as the late, great Barry Goldwater said, none dare call it that.

So, while the Chinese make public statements that they are not afraid of having a war with us, and have their subs shadowing our aircraft carriers, and while the Russians hurl snarky insults at al Obozo as they violate the arms treaty and execute new tests of their nuke delivery missiles, and their nuclear bombers buzz our ships and cruise our coastlines, how does the Fraud in the Rainbow House react? By proving himself to be the Great Prevaricator, the Liar-in-Chief, and putting boots on the ground again in Iraq. Yikes!

The treasonous deal with Iran, brokered by the traitor John F. Kerry – who speaks French, by the way – and Ayatollah al Obozo – who can barely speak English, if it’s not written for him on a teleprompter – appears too, to have gone the traditional way of such sucker scams. As soon as it was signed, the $157 billion freed up to fund terrorists once again, and the crippling sanctions lifted, the Islamist Iranian rulers made it crystal clear that they have no intention of honoring any part of the deal. As it turns out, they have been responsible for at least 14% of the American deaths in Iraq, so al Obozo sending more American troops there seems to be icing on the cake for the Terrorists of Tehran.

Traditionally, Nobel Peace Prize winners don’t go around starting or abetting or getting their countries involved in wars. Not so with America’s Instant Peace Prize Laureate. Al Obozo has been responsible for tens of thousands of deaths of our troops and innocent civilians all over the world. As noted above, this has added immensely to the probability of a major war – World War III? – breaking out. It has also given the impetus and the excuse for the massive invasion of Europe by “refugees”, some 80% of whom are military age, single Muslim males, traditionally the core of jihadist armies. Though it failed in 732, thanks to Charles “The Hammer” Martel – the last great French military man – and again in 1492, when the last Muslims were run out of Spain, it seems indisputable that Europe is in imminent danger of falling to Islamic jihad. The Propaganda Ministry, aka, the “mainstream” media, love to gush about al Obozo’s “unprecedented” accomplishments. Bringing on the potential destruction of the world by all-consuming war leading to a nuclear holocaust, by a Nobel Peace Prize winner is decidedly unprecedented, and certainly not traditional.

Traditionally, elected representatives of We, the People, pay attention to our wants and needs if for no

other reason, traditionally, that if they don’t, they’ll get booted out of office. However, this seems to be another of those traditions that has gone by the wayside. On issue after issue, from the disastrous ObamaCare to amnesty to IRS and EPA abuses of authority to taxes and spending to defunding, demoralizing, and downsizing of our military to job-killing complicity with the “environmental”movement, Congress has blatantly ignored the wishes of 65 to 90% of We, the People. Instead, they do the bidding of huge-money “donors” – traditionally referred to as “criminal bribe givers” – the “special interests” of the not-so-distant past. We, the People, are no longer feared by those who would use positions of power, privilege, and influence in government for their own benefit. Frankly, the only thing – repeat: the only thing – that stands between us and totalitarian domination by a far left elitist minority is the Second Amendment. And when the house of cards built by this bought-and-paid-for “government” collapses, and the circling Russian, Chinese and jihadist wolves move in for the kill, it will be the tradition of a freedom-loving armed citizenry, the “gun behind every blade of grass” that the Japanese so feared, that will ultimately be our salvation.

“WE WILL GET YOU” SO SAYS THE YAZIDIS

The Yazidis swear revenge. ISIS is on their radar.

Looming counteroffensive

The operation to retake Sinjar is fast approaching.

At night in Snuny, the yapping of wild dogs competes with the drone of C-130 aircraft and high-pitched murmur of coalition strike planes, invisible thousands of feet above.

The tempo of air strikes against ISIS positions in and around the town has picked up; CNN witnessed one strike against what was described as a vehicle suicide bomb on the outskirts of the town. On Wednesday alone there were nine strikes.

THE CAMP OF THE SAINTS

 American Renaissance

The proliferation of other races dooms our race, my race, irretrievably to extinction in the century to come, if we hold fast to our present moral principles.

—Jean Raspail, The Camp of the Saints, 1973

Forty-two years ago, the great French author Jean Raspail wrote a deeply prescient novel. A flotilla of rusty ships packed with beggars sets sail from the Third World. They head for the French Riviera, where a million wretched, brown-skinned people hope to storm the beaches and feed on the wealthy white West. Will the French army fire on the invaders or welcome them as refugees? In the end they do neither; soldiers throw down their weapons and run away as the mob stumbles ashore. Millions more follow, and Europe is snuffed out.

The Camp of the Saints has never gone out of print, and has been translated into all major European languages–and yet the coverage of the European “migrant” crisis goes on as if it had never been written. The masses pouring in from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and a host of African countries are doing exactly what Mr. Raspail predicted they would and, tragically, so are the Europeans.

The underlying problem–and one that cannot be solved–is that whites have built the most pleasant places to live in human history while, with only a few exceptions, everywhere else is a dung heap. In some cases, such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya, Western meddling has made things worse, but even without that, hundreds of millions of non-whites in a hundred different countries would move to Europe or America if they could.

And now, they can.CampOfSaints

MUSLIM PRESIDENT GIVES GREEN CARD TO MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS

Our first Muslim president, Barack Hussein Obama has extended greetings to millions of fellow Muslims. As reported by Breitbart News, hundreds of thousands have been allowed to enter the United States annually.

A Breitbart News review of State Department and Homeland Security data reveals that the United States already admits more than a quarter of a million Muslim migrants each year. President Obama intends to add another 10,000 Syrian migrants on top of that.

In 2013 alone, 117,423 migrants from Muslim-majority countries were permanently resettled within the United States— having been given lawful permanent resident status. Additionally in 2013, the United States voluntarily admitted an extra 122,921 temporary migrants from Muslim countries as foreign students and foreign workers as well as 39,932 refugees and asylees from Muslim countries.
