Khoresh e alu-esfenaj: with plums & spinach, peach stew, quince stew, celery stew ... And various types of thick soup, e.g., barley, Pomegranate ...

And here is a #Sogdian dish recipe from 13th C cookbook! Image
I'll talk about other dishes tomorrow...

But #Sasanian food courses were: fruits & nuts, jams, pickled = soused raw meats (خامیز), bazmāvard which are small Persian Sandwiches + other cold dishes (e.g., Sanbusag = samosa), then the main course ... Image
One post seems to have been blocked: Shorba-ye Yazdi seems to be a descendant of jooshpārag. Dumplings are also still used in Afghanistan & Tajikistan.

There is a recipe on Turmeric & Saffron Blog for it

You might be surprised to learn that #Iran protects it's #Christian minorities, while the #US military occupation drives them from #Iraq and #Syria , using the #Kurdish card.…
Notice that @articleeighteen and a number of other US and UK funded groups have been set up to run propaganda against #Iran - mostly aimed at western audiences in English - to sustain the economic and terrorist war against the #Iranian people
😅😂@Article18 says "we ARE the #Iranian people", based in #London, funded by the Brits, speaking English. 😅😂🤣

1. Here is clip from @POTUS nominee @JeffFlake on the decision to partner with who, at the time, were the #Kurdish #YPG #YPJ to stop the spread of #Daesh (aka #ISIS) in #Syria. This was after disastrous attempt to arm a #jihadist forces who simply gave their weapons to al-Qaeda.
2. I did some searches on Twitter timeline for that period of 2014. America was just waking up to the fact that the #Kurds were our best option to defeat #Daesh. There were risks but the decision has proven to be the correct one. Now under #AANES civilian authority backed by the

The mythology of #Newroz

Zuhak was an evil king who conquered #Kurdistan  and had serpents growing from his shoulders. Zuhak's rule lasted for one thousand years; his evil reign caused spring to no longer come to Kurdistan. During this time,
two young men were sacrificed daily and their brains were offered to Zuhak's serpents in order to alleviate his pain. However, the man who was in charge of sacrificing the two young men every day would instead kill only one man a day and mix his brains with those of a
sheep in order to save the other man. As discontent grew against Zuhak's rule, the nobleman Fereydun planned a revolt. The revolt was led by a #Kurdish blacksmith named #Kawa who had lost six sons to Zuhak. The young men who had been saved from the fate of being 👇

Because the Turkish government controls which journalists are allowed to visit Afrin, the stories published by the pro-AKP publications are very similar to what was being published in the NYT. It is striking that the NYT opted not to cover human rights abuses in #Afrin
Several weeks ago, the Islamist Turkish daily newspaper Yeni Şafak cited a New York Times piece, praising Turkey’s presence in the Afrin province in northern Syria.

Yeni Şafak has a reputation as a pro-AKP newspaper with an established record of publishing hate speech
At first, this story appeared to be yet another false narrative published in furtherance of Turkey’s military aims. I assumed Yeni Şafak was only citing the ‘good part’ of the article from the NYT, and must have been leaving out the all-important context.#Afrin

Turkey 🇹🇷 supported #Azerbaijan 🇦🇿 not just diplomatically (supported by diplomats) & logistically (sending mercenary forces as reported by Reuters) but also by selling #BayraktarTb2 drones tilting balance against #Armenia 🇦🇲
The drone in question is #BayraktarTB2, (Tactic Block) a Medium Altitude Long Endurance (MALE) unmanned combat aerial vehicle (UCAV) manufactured by Turkish company called #BaykarMakina

Today is the anniversary of the execution of #Sheikh_Abdulsalam_Barzani.
Barzani was executed in Mosul on 14-12-1914 by an Ottoman state decree, after seven years of continuing the revolution in the Barzan region for the sake of Kurdish national and nation rights.
"Sheikh Abdulsalam #Barzani, the owner of the first manifesto of the Kurdish national liberation movement," says French journalist and historian Chris Kochera.
Sheikh Abdulsalam first collected the Kurdish clans in #Duhok in 1907 on a set of demands for the Kurds and sent them to the sultan of the Ottoman state, but the Ottoman state interpreted it in an attempt to secede and attacked the #Barzan region.

1/15 Long thread on #ArmeniaAgainstTerrorism
Summary of reports and evidences of #jihadist groups currently fighting against #Armenia.
Compiled by Analyst Aram Khachatyan…
2/15 The first reports appeared in mid-July. First it was #Kurdish news Agency Firat @anfenglish, who reported about the corresponding decision of #Turkish authorities on July 18th and about the transportation of 200 #jihadists to #Azerbaijan.
3/15 Later there were some other #Kurdish sources (e.g. Hawar News Agency @enhawarnews) claiming the same. On Sep 22nd, few days prior to war, @LindseySnell, a prominent journalist published a photo supposedly with #Hamza group militants, in a plane arriving to #Baku via #Ankara.

“Violence against women is one of the most common violations of human rights, but most of these violations are not reported because of the absence of penalty,” said Kongra-Star, a confederation of women’s organizations
“We,as women’s movement,call on all the women, civil rights institutions and the civic society institutions to take a rapid initiative to stop these crimes and not to be slow in holding the criminal accountable and applying the heaviest penalty so we can see that justice is done”

1. In the late summer of 2014, I begged the Obama administration to provide cover & JPADS drops to save the few hundred #Kurdish YPG YPJ left surrounded by #Daesh in #Kobane. And he did it. I have reported every day on their courageous battle against Daesh. My YouTube channel
2.every Pentagon briefing from 2016 to #Daesh's surrender. IMO Trump's betrayal was a greater blunder than killing #QassemSoleimani.

We need a place to go. The #SDC and #SDF can administer a save civil society based on self governance and the Golden Rule.
3. Free, secular and Democratic. It may not be too late. But we have to act fast. Ask your members of Congress to support the SDC and SDF and demand Turkey withdraw from North and East Syria. Turkey is booting us. Now Iraq. We need trusted friends. @SenatorRisch @senatemajldr

1. #Turkey is affiliated with both #ISIS & Al-#Qaeda. Congress should give @RTErdogan days to begin full withdrawal from all of Northern Syria: Afrin to Sere Kaniye. Barring it Turkey's economy & war making power must be sanctioned. @NATO must be anti-imperialist to survive.
2. Turkey's strategic objectives in the invasion were to free #Daesh, seize oil & gas and Syrian territory. The US, Russian and SAA redeployment prevented them from achieving the first two objectives so they were left with just seizing territory, committing mass murder,
3. pillage and genocide.

Since 2014, I have closely observed the #YPG & #YPJ initially and then watched the formation of the #SDF, a combined #Arab, #Christian & #Kurdish force. #SDF is a liberation force. They do no acts consistent with terrorism and only people who need fear

There are attempts by #Turkey's propagandists now to either whitewash this or blame this on a lie that "YPG used it as headquarters."

Too bad that this happened two weeks after being seized from YPG UNDAMAGED which another Turkish propaganda video confirms as you can read here:
Those lies are easily busted because they made a silly #propaganda video inside of the church previously which shows no damages at all except of the obvious placement of posters to make an anti-#Kurdish propaganda video.
#Turkey's propaganda is so badly inconsistent, it's self-defeating.

today, 1937: seyid rıza is taken to court in elazığ, where he would be sentenced to death. he was the leader of the #resistance against the state's genocidal campaign against the alevi kurds of #dersim, 1937 & 1938. he was hanged, and never forgotten. a #hero in kurdish history.
both kurds and turks refer to seyid rıza as leader of an #uprising: kurds because it confirms their narrative of kurdish uprisings, turks because they consider it an excuse for the brutal state action. but it's more accurate to call him a #resistance leader. why?
seyid rıza was well informed about the state's brutal ways of bringing #kurdish regions under central control since halfway 19th century, during ottoman times, and he knew what had happened to #armenians in #anatolia. inaccessible #dersim had not been brought under control - yet.

1. Will Turkey's #Kurdish and #Christian #Genocide result in the #Christian world demanding the liberation of #Constantinople? Was that Putin's plan all along to get @RTErdogan to give him an ethno-religious pretext to seize the straights? Now that all US public hates Turkey
2. is there any chance under @POTUS @realDonaldTrump the US would commit #American troops' lives to save Turkey now and disrupt Putin's plan? Who could have dreamed up such a devilish plot?
3. When the Crusaders were closing in remember Turkey, it was a #Kurd who defended Al-Quds.

1. The ISIS affiliated Turkish dictator @RTErdogan who @POTUS @RealDonaldTrump is rewarding for Syrian #Kurdish & #Christian genocide seeks to kill Christians. Evangelical heretics like @Paula_White are all just fine with that. @SenateGOP @HouseGOP @WhiteHouse @foxandfriends
2. Let's face it. Most of the so-called Evangelicals are not part of a religious sect. They are an economic machine to make money for fake Christian preachers who, like White, commit blasphemy for money. The fact that the @CatholicBishops teamed up with these charlatans
3. condemns the Church as accomplice in a Genocide. @Pontifex should excommunicate any Bishop who shows anything but pity for @realDonaldTrump, @SenateGOP @SenateDems @HouseDemocrats @HouseGOP @PressSec @hogangidley45 @LindseyGrahamSC @MittRomney

1. Pro Al-Qaeda & ISIS US diplomats in Turkey with Turkish and Syrian jihadists to continue the #Kurdish & #Christian #Genocide. We must wait until 2021. Then @POTUS @VP @SecPompeo Jeffrey & Raburn will be charged with a 18 USC 1091 conspiracy. No immunity like #VonRibbentrop.
3. Except for Pat Robertson, the only Evangelical who was willing to call @RealDonaldTrump out. Rest are simply grifter Judases taking their 30 pieces of silver. We need to demonstrate at their churches. Call them out for supporting ISIS. Let's do @JoelOsteen first. #AbuOsteen

1. My admiration for #SDF's professionalism & courage can't be overstated. @POTUS @realDonaldTrump betrayed them but they stayed on-mission with @SOJTFOIR @USSOCOM to eliminate 2 top terrorists. The missions had been delayed when Trump authorized the #Kurdish #Christian genocide
2. at the request of a known #ISIS Al-#Qaeda affiliate, @RTErdogan. The #TSK and #MIT are both #ISIS affiliates.

I think our nukes have been gone from #Incirlik for months. If not we need to send teams in to remove them & tell #Ankara if it interferes it will be considered
3. a threat to seize nuclear weapons to attack the US and warrant an appropriate US military response that could include a decapitation strike authorized by the 2001AUMF. @WHNSC @thejointstaff @EsperDoD @DefenseIntel @CIA @NSAGov
