Kurdish Peshmerga Units Battle Regime Forces in Iran


Successful resistance by the Kurds could spark uprisings by other oppressed minorities in Iran who account for about half of Iran's population.

The protests of the Green Revolution in Iran may no longer be on our television screens, but that doesn’t mean resistance to the Iranian regime has disappeared. The Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan(PDKI) has confirmed that six of its fighters were killed in a battle with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps, the regime’s elite security force and terrorism-sponsoring outfit.

The PDKI claims that their Peshmerga forces were fired upon first in the town of Shno in northwestern Iran. The regime also confirmed the fighting, describing the PDKI fighters as “terrorists.”  The Kurds say they killed a dozen Revolutionary Guards and injured 14.

The Kurdistani Crescent

Every nation has the right to have a unified identity. Some have a unified identity under the umbrella of nationalism; others have it through religious solidarity; and still others have their solidarity as part of an economic block. For example, one understanding of the Arab unified identity is "United Arab nation", while the European Union has its identity under the umbrella of an economic union.
Most Islamic nations are divided between Sunnis and Shiites. A Sunni Crescent begins with Turkey and sweeps southward toward Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, encompassing the Gulf countries (the old Ottoman Empire). Turkey and Saudi Arabia usually compete to take the leadership of this crescent.

Turkish Prime Minister: ‘There Is a 360-Degree Difference Between Turkish Islam and ISIS’ چاپ ارسال به دوست

Turkish Prime Minister:
There Is a 360-Degree Difference Between Turkish Islam and ISIS'
October 16th,2015

Ask Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu to describe the difference between his interpretation of Islam and that of the Islamic State, and he'll tell you there's no distinction at all - entirely by accident, of course.

Islamic State jihadis allegedly detonated two bombs at an Ankara peace rally last week, killing 99 and sparking many critics inside the country to accuse the Turkish government of failing to act on intelligence that could have prevented the attack. Other conspiracies included claims that the Kurdish opposition or the government itself was responsible for the attacks.

Davutoglu went on Turkish channel Show TV on Wednesday night in an attempt to rescue Ankara from those charges. It didn't go very well: In a major geometrical gaffe, Davutoglu instead ended up saying Turkey is directly aligned with the extremist group.

"There is a 360-degree, not 180-degree, difference between the Islam we defend and what Daesh has on its mind," he said, using an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State.

Will the United States Sell Out the Kurds Again and Forfeit a Loyal Ally?


 By Dr. Saman Shali:

ئه م نوستراوه به زماني كوردى


August 27,2015

The history of contact between the United States and the Kurds goes way back to President Woodrow Wilson. In January 1918, for the first time the US supported the Kurds' rights within the Ottoman Empire in the 14 points by President Wilson. But because the US did not have an important role in the area, they did not give any weight to the US declaration in support of the Kurds.

The Kurds have been sold out at least three times during this century and these betrayals still burn vividly in the mind of the Kurds. In 1946 the Republic of Mahabad was sacrificed for the Shah of Iran with US blessing; in 1975 the Kurdish Revaluation was sacrificed for the Shah of Iran and Saddam Hussein with US support; and in February 1991, the US president asked the Kurds and the Shiites to rise up and rebel against the Iraqi government. In response to this request, they did so. At the time, most politicians in the U.S. said that this request did not signal a change in US policy towards the Kurds, but was rather an attempt to weaken the Iraqi government. After the uprising and the victory of the US army, the United States washed their hands of the Kurds, leaving them to face their fate alone.
