A letter to #Mazlum #Kobane (#General Mazlum),
I know that “being fine” to you at the moment is like the sweet lie of a #Shervan (Kurdish fighter) whose foot is on a mine as he answers his wife’s call with: “I’m fine babe, I’m fine.”

Gazing at your pictures has made me numb. I can see sadness in your eyes. They have as much grief as Qazi Muhammed’s execution, as our homeland’s solitude.

Oh, what a deep sorrow that must be! The dreams you are about to have about the liberty of our homeland is being interrupted by shelling and bombardments.

Dear General, Kurds’ Mazlum (Oppressed – Tyrannized),
You do not have to introduce yourself because your name is enough to know who you are. You’re our Godfather; a human who stole fortitude from the mountains and elicited dignity from the falcons.

But what can you do about a world which has been filled with degenerate crows? Once they learn that you are standing upright, they will come and eat your skull. When you fly, they will assault and raid your descendants.

My friend, Mazlum,
We are a nation that no one has heard anything of. God created us only to represent his own solitude. Hence, no one can neither see us nor believe our existence. I have come to a conclusion that our freedom won’t be achieved down the barrels of guns.6/7
We are just changing the color of the landscape with all the blood that is spilled from our flesh, making spring the most exquisite season in our homeland.

A Shervan once told me a story, “In the middle of conflict, my wife shared some news: ‘God gave us a boy, what should I name him?’”
“‘Name him Azadi (freedom),’ I said. But when I returned home, both of them had become martyrs.”

That’s the way it is, Comrade. Freedom won’t ever grow in our homeland. In the thirty years of my life, only today I realized what the word “coercion” means. You know sometimes, there are decisions that kill you a hundred times before you can even decide.

I understand your deep sorrow, man. But we are are all coerced to endure it. What you did should never be seen as a sell-out, never.

It was a means of preventing the cleansing of a nation’s identity. Thank you, warrior. Thank you.
