1. #Kurds, you don’t need to worship Apo, Barzani, Talabani, Parti, Yeketi, PKK, individuals, ideologies. It’s all nonsense, my advice is let it go. This mentality is preventing you from gaining your rights, you’re all too caught up in proving you’re right they’re wrong.
2. I’ve left my messages open for a bit and have received messages from fellow Kurds of their disappointment of all parties and clans, KDP, PUK, Barzani, Talabani, influence from Turkey, Iran. The usual. Fact is they’ve all failed and succeed but none has achieved independence.
3. I’ve had conversations with hardcore KDP, PUK, PKK followers and Kurds who simply want Kurdistan to succeed. Your division is ugly, backwards and I always tell them the same, very bluntly: Let that garbage go. Your enemies are advancing, gaining, winning. You’re still losing.

#Iran launches 'more than a dozen ballistic missiles' at #US targets in #Iraq, Pentagon confirms
I#Iran #USA
ran’s foreign minister has said the strikes have concluded and characterised them as self-defence within the boundaries of international law – not the first shots in a war.

Trump, in his first comments after the strikes, also sought to play them down.
#Iran #USA
The attacks appear to have been carefully calibrated to avoid US casualties. #US bases in #Iraq were already on high alert.

This is a first step Iran is initiating to give the go to further attacks by Iran and its allies to exhaust US forces in the Middle East.

Il cinema è resistenza, la resistenza è vita: questa è la storia di Rûbar Şervan, attore del nuovo potentissimo film sulla resistenza di Sur @jiboazadiyefilm, ma soprattutto combattente e guerrigliero caduto per la libertà.

#thread #resistenza #cinema #Kurdistan
Quando il regista Ersin Çelik cercava attori per un film sulla resistenza di Sur (Diyarbakir) durante il coprifuoco, incontrò Rûbar Şervan a Kobanê, che all’epoca combatteva contro ISIS.
Rûbar cade in battaglia il 25 ottobre a Heftanin, durante la difesa contro occupazione turca.
Le parole del regista Ersin Çelik per ricordarlo:

Rûbar arrivò a Kobanê nel 2014 per combattere contro IS. Quando ci siamo conosciuti aveva combattuto in Rojava e era stato ferito diverse volte. Ci incontrammo per la prima volta nell’ottobre 2017 a Kobanê.

Das frage ich mich auch schon immer, aber eine mögliche Antwort wäre schwer.
Ich denke so an die Laienführung, die aber selbst schon in ein falsches System geraten ist, weil ihre Vorgänger schon versäumt haben, den Bürgern zu erklären, warum man Soldaten in den Krieg schickt
@Julia42833681 2#
Ich als ehemaliger Soldat und mit den Infos, die ich mir aus den öffentlichen Medien geholt habe, halte den Einsatz in Afghanistan oder in Mali für keinen Fehler an sich, sondern nur in der Ausführung und wie es vor reifen und mündigen Bürgern zunächst verschleiert wurde
@Julia42833681 3#
Hätte man hier wie man erwarten kann, die Gründe benannt, hätte um Verständnis geworben und hätte immer weiter mit Bürgern kommuniziert, wäre vielleicht, nur meine Meinung, das Thema nicht so hoch gekocht,dass es Auswirkungen auf die Wahlen gibt und man dann einknickt

Who are the #Kurds? Why should overthrow of Govt of #Syria be their objective? Are they on a quest for #Kurdistan or are they just pawns in the game of geopolitical players? What are the implications of the Turkish #OperationPeaceSpring for #India?
greatgameindia.com/kurds-kurdista…
In 1973 President Richard Nixon & Secretary of State Henry Kissinger instigated a CIA #Kurdish uprising in #Iraq against #SaddamHussein. The US walked away from the rebellion when Saddam and the Shah of #Iran settled their differences, leaving the #Kurds to face their own fate.
In addition to political disagreements and rivalries, tensions between the two dominant Iraqi #Kurdish political parties, the #Kurdistan Democratic Party #KDP and Patriotic Union of Kurdistan #PUK escalated to a civil war that killed more than 2,000 #Kurds in the mid-1990s.

The Kurdis Question

Since theres lot of #DeepState propaganda floating around, heres a #thread on the Geopolitical history of the #Kurds and how they have been used again and again as a pawn in the game for larger objectives.

Syria
Turkey
#KurdishGenocide
#KurdsBetrayedByTrump
Ever since the US invaded #Syria, the US and #Israel have supported the semi-autonomous #Kurdistan, with Israel purchasing $3.84 billion dollars worth of OIL from them, a move that has geopolitical and economic ramifications for all parties involved. newrepublic.com/article/118549…
In 2015, the Financial Times reported that #Israel had imported as much as 77 percent of its OIL supply from #Kurdistan. The sales were a sign of Iraqi Kurdistan’s growing assertiveness and the further fraying of ties between Erbil and #Baghdad. ft.com/content/150f00…

Das hat ja nicht lange gedauert: #Erdolf ähhh #Erdogan, Möchtegern-Sultan der #Türkei, nimmt sich ein Beispiel an #China: Entweder die #EU schweigt zum geplanten Genozid in #Kurdistan/#Syrien oder er schickt die Geflüchteten los in Richtung Europa. /MS sueddeutsche.de/politik/erdoga…
Einmal mehr zeigt sich: Appeasement gegenüber rechtsradikalen Kräften (nichts anderes war der "Flüchtlingsdeal" mit der Türkei) hat immer langfristig katastrophale Auswirkungen. Um #Pegida & die #AfD ruhigzustellen, hat Kanzlerin #Merkel einen Pakt mit dem Teufel geschlossen. /MS
Ebenso ist die gesamte #EU gescheitert. Gescheitert daran, ihre eigenen Werte der Mitmenschlichkeit und der Hilfe in der Not zu verteidigen - sowohl im eigenen Gebiet als auch weltweit - , und gescheitert daran, mit den Autokraten der Welt fertig zu werden. /MS

... agreement, like all prior ones, is flawed, unsustainable, & bound to fail.

Looking at the #KRG’s finances, with the help of the Deloitte audits, I argue that the KRG cannot, even if it wanted, to comply with its obligations under the #Iraqi federal budget terms.

The GoI & the #KRG need to embark on comprehensive re-write of the relationship in a such way that both parties believe that the benefits of the new relationship far outweigh the benefits of not having it.

Like announced, I'll start a thread on the symbolism of the (in)famous black & white banner in #Islam. This comprehensive thread will explore its historical origins and cover a list of its contemporary users from a neutral #academic point of view. Not for the faint of heart. 😄
As a political leader & head of a growing religious community, the #prophet Muḥammad used to fly a banner (liwāʾ) and a flag (rāya). The difference? According to the #dictionary, a banner is "a long piece of cloth" while a flag is "a piece of cloth that represents a group."
The Companion Ibn al-ʿArabī was quoted in Fatḥ al-Bārī (6/147) as saying: "A banner is what is tied to the side of a spear to rally around, while a flag is that which is planted and left to be waved by the wind."
