Although Kurdish and international humanitarian organizations are ceaselessly continuing to provide food, clean water, sanitation and shelter for the tens of thousands of Yazidi in Kurdish Ezadi (followers of one of the most ancient pre-Islamic religions in the world) refugees, the enormity of the calamity is too overwhelming for even experienced international relief agencies. The UN has called the crisis “ the highest emergency” and one of the worst tragedies in recent years in terms of numbers of refugees it has created in a short time; on Aug 3.  2014 over 100000 women, children, and men fled the savage onslaught of the Islamic State, seeking sanctuary in the Shingal (In Arbic Sinjar) Mount encircled by the jihadists.

Kurdish-Americans Demonstrate, Plead for U.S. Support for Kurds

LOS ANGELES -- A group of Kurdish demonstrators gathered in front of the Wilshire Federal Building in Los Angeles on Tuesday imploring the United States to assist the Kurdish people with humanitarian relief and military support in order to establish their independence and to help them thwart the impending genocide and violence being wrought upon them by the Islamic State in Iraq.

Dozens of Kurds held up flags and signs calling for an end to ISIS, while showing glimmers of an optimism which has yet to be realized by way of the formation of an independent Kurdistan. 

Chants of "Down, down ISIS! Long live Kurdistan!" filled the atmosphere on the browning lawns of the federal building. Similar rallies were also held elsewhere win Southern California, including San Diego.

URGENT ACTION

KURDISH WOMAN losing sight in Iranian prison

Zeynab Jalalian, a member of Iranian’s Kurdish minority, currently serving a life sentence in Kermanshah Prison, western Iran, is at risk of losing her eyesight and she is in urgent need of medical care.

Zeynab Jalalian has had eye problems for a number of years, possibly as a result of beatings she received during interrogations by the Iranian authorities. Her health situation has worsened and she may be losing her eyesight. On 8 April, she was transferred to the prison clinic in handcuffs and shackles to receive treatment for her eyes, but the prison authorities have repeatedly refused to allow her access to an eye specialist outside of Kermanshah Prison. It is not clear whether the prison clinic is able to provide Zeynab Jalalian with the medical care she requires.

Iran: Four death row prisoners at imminent risk amid reports of secret executions 

 

Four Sunni prisoners on death row, Hamed Ahmadi, Jahangir Dehghani, Jamshid Dehghani and Kamal Molaee, have been transferred to solitary confinement and are scheduled to be executed on Sunday 15 June on the charge of “enmity against God” (moharebeh), only days after reports of the secret execution of Ali Chebieshat and Sayed Khaled Mousawi on the same charge, warned Amnesty International.

Amnesty International calls on the authorities not to execute Hamed Ahmadi, Jahangir Dehghani, Jamshid Dehghani and Kamal Molaee and immediately impose a moratorium on all executions. 

The families of the four men were called on 13 June to visit their relatives for the last time before their death sentence will be implemented in Rajae Shahr prison on 15 June. The four are accused of killing Mullah Mohammad Sheikh al-Islam, a senior Sunni cleric with ties to the Iranian authorities. The men deny the accusation, saying that they had been arrested between June and July 2009, several months before the sheikh’s killing in September 2009, and that they have been targeted solely because they practiced or promoted their faith, such as taking part in Sunni religious seminars and distributing Sunni reading materials.

Iran's Language War against the Kurdistan Region

amir_sharifi.jpgBy: Dr. Amir Sharifi

23 May 2014
 

Until recently the Islamic Republic pretended it was getting along with the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and not intervening in its affairs. Rudaw recently reported that the KRG Department of Foreign Affairs had summoned the Iranian acting consul in Erbil to protest and condemn a condescending statement that had appeared on the consular website, in which  the Kurdish language had been proclaimed to be a " dialect of Persian," and Iran was described as the ancestral  "motherland" of Kurds. I must commend KRG officials for repudiating this outright breach of diplomatic protocol.

I should hasten to add that, anywhere else, such a diplomatic breach would be cause for expulsion. The central question is why the Islamic Republic is so blatantly and perniciously reviving a moribund myth against the official status of Kurdish in Iraq?
