Turkey want to stop the pipeline project to connect Greece and Italy to Cypriot and Israeli gas reserves

Greece, Italy, Cyprus. Egypt and Israel reached an agreement to build the pipeline

Turkey' involvement in Libya war is relevant to this heinous effort

#Syria #twitterkurds
Currently, Turkey imports gas from Azerbaijan, Russia, Turkmenistan & Iran by pipeline, connects pipelines and transfers natural gas to Europe

New "Eastern Mediterranean" pipeline project will weaken Turkey's position of being on an important crossroad of energy supply route.

1. I think the US may be engaged in slight policy shift in #Syria re #SDF though I don't think the rules of engagement have changed, this statement today by #Coalition Spox is a big deal IMO:

"MC: I’d like to take a moment to describe some more of our relationship with the SDF.
2. We are… the Coalition, the US-led Coalition is on several bases in NE Syria. The bases we live on are Syrian Democratic Forces bases. Today, you came and you saw SDF soldiers and guards who let you into this base. We exist in full partnership with the SDF.
3. This partnership goes beyond the security of our bases. Outside the bases, we have joint patrols where SDF and Coalition troops provide regional security, search for outlaws and protect critical infrastructure. We also have training.

1. The @nytimes is wrong on the facts. There is an alternative. MT Syria’s Drawn-Out Agony
2. Times: “there remains no viable resistance inside #Syria for #America to support.”

That’s factually incorrect. AA of #NES is an oposition group. The Times doesn’t distingush between “Rebels” (mostly jihadists including #ISIS and Al-#Qaeda) and the #SDF, the brave fighters
3. who fight shoulder-to-shoulder with @SOJTFOIR in the war against terror. #Turkey armed and financed Al-Qaeda & ISIS. Syrians should not be left with a choice of either ISIS or Assad. In NES folks are free. The misguided uniformed people on Times Editorial board threaten NES

1. Ambassador Jeffrey: "We’re not planning any withdrawal of U.S. troops from Syria in the near future. Their mission is ultimately the enduring defeat of ISIS, and that, as I’ll get to in a second, in response to the first part of the question, will still take some time.
2. A major part of our efforts to defeat ISIS in Syria is to first of all keep ISIS away from the oil fields that funded their terror for years, and ensure that the local communities who are working with us against ISIS have the wherewithal to continue the fight and to sustain
3. themselves, because they’re not only under pressure from ISIS, they’re under pressure, of course, from the Assad regime." #TwitterKurds

This is Hevrin Khalaf. A 34-year-old Syrian Kurdish political leader. She was respected internationally, as someone striving for peace in the region. But on the 12th of October she was silenced forever. Watch the BBC documentary right here :
On the 12th of October, Hevrin Khalaf set off from al-Hasakah around 5.30am with her driver, Farhad Ramadan. They were heading west on the M4 motorway. Earlier that morning eyewitnesses report, a #SNA military convoy was seen crossing into Syria from Turkey.
This video, filmed by an Ahrar al-Sharqiya fighter, shows the sun has just risen, putting the time between 6.30am and 7am. It was the same time that Hevrin Khalaf was using the M4, to get to her office that morning. #Syria

1. Why the Oil? I reported my analysis for about a year that Erdogan's strategic objective with his safe zone is Syria's oil fields. In the current operation after answering Baghdadi's call to release the ISIS fighters held in #SDF prisons he was going to move to seize the oil.
2. In addition, Rumilan deployment is positioned to guard our supply lines from KRG territory. If we are going to keep #SDF viable we have to keep them supplied.

Now that @CENTCOM has thwarted Erdogan's strategic objectives he can choose full withdrawal or economic
3. sanctions. For me this evidences that the US military CIA and possibly Congress have woken up to who Erdogan is. I have reported his ISIS affiliation for five years and his brutal ISIS/Al-Qaeda force has brought us to the reality that we may have go to war with Turkey.

The Partiya Karkerên Kurdistanê (Kurdistan Workers Party) PKK, was established 27th November 1978 in response to Turkey's attempt to forcibly assimilate the 20 million Kurds to 'be Turks', banning Kurdish language, culture, identity & erasing Kurdish history. #TwitterKurds.
PKK is a mass political movement, the Kurdish national freedom movement that has mass support of many millions of Kurds & encompasses many different structures & countries & pursues political goals to secure rights for the Kurds and democracy for the Middle East.
PKK are engaged in an armed struggle against the Turkish army in North Kurdistan (SE Turkey) where Kurds see the Turkish army as a racist colonial occupier brutally suppressing the Kurdish population through razing of Kurdish villages, towns & cities & mass imprisonment of Kurds.

1. @POTUS Trump and @RTErdogan have something in common. They will both be charged with #genocide. Trump will be tried in the US under 18 USC 1091. Unless #Erdogan is dumb enough to come here, it will likely require a #Nuremberg style war crimes tribunal.
2. Turkey, like the US, does not subscribe to the International Criminal Court. But we have a criminal statute that makes it a capital crime. I don't think Turkey has a genocide statute. Turkey is a genocide repeat offender. #Armenian #Christians were among their major victims.
3. The crime of genocide requires "specific intent" to effect the result of destroying in substantial part "a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group." For Erdogan that's easy. Many times he has professed his intent to exterminate Kurds. This is his "kill Kurds" hand sign

A follower of mine has made me aware of the fact that there exists a Turkish online platform which cooperates with Turkish police. They make a database of critical voices online, mass report them to shut them down & arrest them if they are in Turkey.

He lives in Turkey and wanted to stay anonymous to avoid arrest. Among others, @narinistan and @vvanwilgenburg are on this list. This campagin started yesterday and aims to arrest all critical Kurdish voices inside Turkey.


@narinistan @vvanwilgenburg @Twitter @edipyuksel you are on the list above. Be careful if you are going to Turkey.

New documents reveal #Turkey' founder Ataturk buys chemical warfare from Nazi Germany (1937) to use against Kurdish Alevi civilians of #Dersim.

Turkish dictator Ataturk killed ten thousands of civilians in Dersim, Kurdistan in 1937-38

#twitterkurds #Kurdistan #Turkey #Istanbul
Poisonous gas bought from Nazi Germany were: Sulfur mustard (iperit), Phenacyl chloride (chloroacetophenone).

Documents show, Ataturk orders poisonous gas to be transported to Elaziz (Elazig) to be used against civilians in Dersim, Kurdistan.

#twitterkurds #Turkey
Ataturk proved to Hitler that killing civilians with poisonous gas is "not a crime" in 1937 and then Hitler walked in his path and did exactly the same to Jewish people in Germany.

Kemal Ataturk gassed Alevi Kurds in caves of Dersim, Hitler gassed jews in chambers of Auschwitz..

Turkish hostility towards Kurds can not be explained with PKK or YPG or other Kurdish freedom fighters. It goes back to Ataturk' plan of building nation state for Turks only. He tried to create it with Turkish minority and the Kurds were only nation/people who would not accept it
When Ataturk launched his racist Turkish nation state plan, Kurds have opposed this anti-democratic dictatorship and he started to deny Kurdish existence after S.Said rebellion (1925). Ottoman was not Turkish only but mix of all nations in Balkans, Caucasus, Mid east and Anatolia
Turks were minority in Anatolia, as Ataturk himself is not Turkish just as Hitler not having German blood. He called himself the god of new nation and oppressed all non Turkish muslim and non-muslim minorities. Muslim minorities accepted to convert by force by Kurds were natives.

As we all know, our sweet Florent has left this earth.  Flo was a loving father, husband, son,brother and friend.  Florent touched our lives every day with his comical post, witty sense of humor and not to mention the debates.…
Florent would have never wanted to leave his son Ari nor his wife Mel. We as his extended family or friends have decided a long with his family that Ari and Emela need our help.
If its for Ari’s bday, holiday, or just food or clothes. We can help. If Mel wants to buy shoes or a coffee, we can help.  

Flo didnt ask for much. Flo was there for everyone and now it’s our turn to be there for Flo.
