Kurdish American 2016 Presidential Preference Survey: Clinton vs. Trump

راپه رسى له كورده كانى نيشته جى ولاته يكگرتووه كانى ئه مريكا، سه باره ت به هه لبژاردنه كانى سه روك كومارى ئه مريكا 



Dear Fellow Kurdish American Community Members!
Hope you're all well. 
As election season is in full swing, there is a lot at stake for us. 
There is an information gathering survey titled "Kurdish American 2016 Presidential Preference Survey" that only takes a couple minutes to fill out. 
The survey is confidential and purely for information gathering purposes. It can help us gauge the community's level of engagement with the U.S. Presidential elections. 
The survey is sponsored by Kurdish American Committee for Democracy and Human Rights and VOKRadio (Voice of Kurdish American Radio for Democracy, Peace and Freedom).
The results will be publicized in mid August and will be made available for anyone to use in their analysis. 
So far more than 2000 people have viewed the survey and a couple hundred have responded. Not all those responses can be counted but it's a good start. 
Please take a few moments to fill this out:
Much due respect, 
Azad Moradian
Chair of Kurdish American committee for Democracy and Human Rights.

How clashes inside Iran remake regional equations? چاپ ارسال به دوست   

How clashes inside Iran remake regional equations?

By: Rudaw

July 5th, 2016 


The KDPI has firmly denied any outside influenceover its recent decision to mobilize its forces deeper inside Iran and maintained it seeks a peaceful solution to the Kurdish question. 

ERBIL, Kurdistan Region-Largely peaceful demonstrators in the Iranian city of Isfahan called recently on their government to withdraw from Syria and concentrate its efforts instead on its own disfranchised people.

"Let Go of Syria; Think of Iran," was the slogan chanted in rhyming Persian by hundreds of marchers last Friday. It was chanted, ironically, at the annual Quds public rally, which is held every year on the last Friday of Ramadan to mark commitment to the liberation of Palestine.

Since the Islamic Revolution in 1979, Iran has been seen as virtually the only regional super power in the Middle East without a formidable internal opposition that could effectively destabilize its regional grip.

While Turkey, Iraq, Egypt and even the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have constantly been dealing with separatist or extremist groups within their borders, Iran has successfully been able to sideline or dismantle powerful political parties and their armed wings such as the Mujahedin-e-Khalq and the once influential Communist Party, the Toudeh.

What's Behind Sudden Clashes In Northwestern Iran? 

June 29, 2016
 By: Golnaz Esfandiari 

Iranian Kurdish fighters from the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran train as they prepare to celebrate Norouz, the Persian New Year, in the town of Koya, 100 kilometers north of Irbil in Iraq's Kurdish region, in March. 

Clashes erupted this month between Kurdish fighters and Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), with each side claiming to have inflicted casualties on the other. The country's heavily censored media have even reported the fighting andacknowledged fatalities on the government side. But why the sudden flare-up?

Who is fighting and how widespread is the violence? The past two weeks of fighting have reportedly pitted official forces against members of the Kurdish Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI), with deadly clashes between the IRGC and Kurdish rebels in heavily Kurdish northwestern Iran, near the border with Iraq. Combat was reported on June 15-16 in Oshnavieh, in Iran's West Azerbaijan Province. More fighting followed in the nearby Sarvabad, Mahabad, and Marivan regions.

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. 

By: Ryan Mauro

Tue, June 21, 2016 


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.

Everyone is a Peshmerga': The Kurdish men and women who are fighting Iran

By Marta Senk





Female Peshmerga of Iran's Kurdistan Democratic Party

Begard, a woman Peshmerga: “In our community everyone is Peshmerga. It doesn't matter, man or woman. Equality manifests itself in free chose - if I decide that I'm going to the mountain my husband will take care of the children and the house. It doesn't mean that he is not a man! If he can share the responsibilities with me he is more masculine than those who can only hold a gun".
