An Arabic writer who feels the pain of the Kurdish nation.

Last week my friend told me that there is an Arabic writer who writes about Kurds and Jews. At the first place it sound very weird to me, it is just imagining Muqtada Sadir in jeans… yeah right!
Anyway, I was very interested in the subject. So I began to search for this mystic writer. You will not believe me people! The story that I have been told was true!

The writer is Jasim el-Mutir. He is an Iraqi Arabic writer. He is actually a very good friend of Kurds and Jews, especially the Iraqi Jews. He has been captured by the Saddam’s government because of his stories which he wrote. He is the first Arabic writer who wrote a book about Halabja, the Kurdish city which has been bombed with chemical weapon by Saddam Hussein. The book called “Shiren” and it is one of his best stories that he wrote. “Shiren” has been translated in more than 15 languages, including Kurds and Chinese. He is also the writer of the first book about the Jewish tragedy in the ME. It’s called “The two lovers of Mesopotamia”. It is an amazing book about two Iraqi Jews who separated from each other because of ware.

I was very surprised when I heard that the Kurdish authorities never thanked hem for his great job that he did for Kurds. But that is actually not amazing at all. Our so called Kurdish leaders are too busy with making money and they have no time to thanks our friends.

Well, we should not forget people who show sympathy to our nation. We need these people more than any time. Because only they are in state to make sure that Halabja II won’t happen again.

Our friends….

Early eighties almost each country in the Western world was busy to make profit from the Iran-Iraq war. The Western world did this by selling weapons to Iran and Iraq. The Arabic countries did also play a dirty play during this war. During the eight years of war they gave money to Saddam Hussein so he could continue his war. Meanwhile these Arabic countries were selling their oil for a lower price than Iraq, they were sending workers to Iraq so they could rebuild what Khomeini had destroyed and above of all these they were getting young Kurdish girls and Kurdish women as gifts from Saddam Hussein. If you wondering where these young girls and women came from, the answer is simple: they were prisoners of the “Anfal”. Anfal is the name that Saddam Hussein gave to his plan to destroy 5500 Kurdish villages in north of Iraq and killing 180.000 Kurds.

One of most awful pictures that I see it everyday are the castles which are build by France for Saddam Hussein. These castles served as military posts, especially during the Anfal period in 1988. They served also as prisons where Kurdish people were tortured and killed. There are maybe near 100 castles like this in north of Iraq. I am wondering why nobody accuse Franc for helping Saddam Hussein and as a partner of Saddam Hussein during the genocides of 1988? Don’t tell me it’s not possible because there is not enough evidence! Come and see them by your self.


Each time when I see these castles I realize more that our only friends are the mountains.

Karda is back :)

Hi ppl,

The last two weeks I was on vacation in Turkey. I saw a lot of things, it was really fun. I tried to blog from Turkey but sadly it wasn’t possible. In Adana I asked someone for an internet café he answered me: “do you want thee?” and I said: “No, thank no thee I prefer coffee”.

So for the people who emailed me I wasn’t captured or killed, I was just on vacation. Thanks for asking by the way ;)

as soon as possible I will begin writing again,

Regards,
Karda

The Referendum Committee of Australia retire

London (KurdishMedia.com) 30 July 2004: The Referendum Committee of Australia was scraped by the elected committee of the organisation and decided not to take part in further activities of the movement. The Committee issued a communiqué on 28 July 2004, providing the reasons for their departure.

The Referendum Movement collected over 1.8 million signatures in Kurdistan and 48 thousands signatures amongst the Kurdish Diaspora. A three-member delegation, consisting of Dr Rebwar Fatah, Dr Kawa Amin and Ms Khoshi Shawqi, visited the UN in Geneva earlier this year, to set a roadmap to conduct a referendum in Kurdistan.

However since then the movement has faced many obstacles, including that the signatures to date have not been delivered to the UN

Letting South Kurdistan be a part of Iraq is maybe the best option at this moment. But if Kurds wanted to be a part of Iraq, they could do that long time a go. Then the Halabja and Anfal tragedy never happened and we could all live in peace together. Except for the Kurdish leaders Kurds never wanted to be a part of any country. This is something which is have been forgotten by the rest of the world, even by Kurds.

The most important thing at this moment is the question whether Kurds in South of Kurdistan want to be a part of Iraq or not? And if they don’t want the beloved Federal system what is the reason then?

There are enough reasons to be not a part of Iraq, think of what all the Iraqi governments did against Kurds for the last 80 years. Of course it’s important to learn from your mistakes but personally I don’t think that that would be the best arguments. Maybe it’s time to come with new arguments instead of Halabja and Anfal. Personally I think that each nation has the right to form his state and call it his country. I think also that self-determination right most get highest priority. So calling independence is not because Iraq is not good enough for Kurds, it’s actually because each nation has the right to be independent and also Kurds, as a nation, will use that universal right.

Nowadays when you talk about Kurds everybody thinks only of Kurds in Iraq. But the Kurdish problem don’t stop by the Iraqi border, there are 40 million Kurds who suffers under horrible regimes in the ME. If USA and the rest of world are really our friend then they do their best to find a solution for the Kurdish problem entirely, not only in Iraq.

Kurds must be aware that they must do their best for an independence Kurdistan. Only an independence Kurdistan will solve the Kurdish problem in the ME. What Kurds and the rest of the nations in the ME must absolutely not forget is that demanding an independence Kurdistan doesn’t mean killing each other and hating each other. Of course only a fool would actually believe that the first step of solving the Kurds problem is giving Kurds their Independent Kurdistan. It’s a process of years. But it must begin somewhere. The ideal situation is when Turks, Arabs and Persians thinking by themselves of giving Kurds their rights. Because that is the only way to prevent wars between these nations. And who knows maybe after 50 years there will be Turks, Arabs and Persians who are actually proud because one day they supported the Kurdish independency. And example of a person who made the first step in the blogworld to show the rest of the Kurds that not each Arab is a racist is Mr. Ali. His article has been published on Kurdo’s webblog. I really have respect for these kinds of people; I hope to see more of them in the future.

Turkish PM in Iran seek help against Kurd rebels

Rajab Ordughan ,The Turkey's Prime Minster, has come to Iran to visited Khatami and talk about the Kurds problem in his country. Ordughan made an agreement with Khatami about the PKK issue. Iran will from now on see PKK as a terrorist organisation, and for that will Turkey never allow USA to use his country as a basis to attack Iran. I most say this is really a dirty play!

In 1978, left-wing Kurds under the direction of Ocalan founded the Marxist PKK, an organization whose goal was autonomy for Turkey’s Kurds. This Kurdish party is fighting for the freedom of more than 25 million Kurds in Turkey. Sadly PKK believes in pure communism. For that reason I don’t prefer PKK to be the ruler of North of Kurdistan. Simply, because fundamentalism don’t work for everybody. In a pure communistic country people are not allowed to say what they want. I prefer a democratic country.

However, PKK is very unique. It’s the only party in the Middle East which is composed for 40% out of women! Yes, you heard me! There are actually women who have the daring to fight one of the most well armed army in the world, the Turkish army. When I think of these mothers and sisters who chosen to be guerrilla’s, then I realise how much we, Kurds, want to live in freedom.

Personally, if I was a soldier in the Turkish army, I will feel proud to be killed by a woman in the battlefield. I really do.


Kurdish Peshmarga's


For the freedom loving people:
Pleas pray for these freedom fighters, because they have the daring, they have the courage, they just love so much freedom that they are actually prepare to die for it. I am proud to be member of a nation which women are fighting even more courageously than men. And all that for one word Freedom

Long live freedom.

FAHRENHEIT 9/11

Fahrenheit 9/11

Finally I got the chance to see Fahrenheit 9/11. I must say that Fahrenheit 9/11 is a documentary which must seen by everybody around the world, especially by Americans. It’s a documentary which shows the real face of Bush and his clan.
 
During the documentary I had a feeling like I just have seen all these things before, déjà vu. Well, after thinking and thinking I thought “Of course! Bush is the American version of Saddam Hussein!.”

Let me explain it.

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: “chairman Bush’s campaign was also the vote countin’ woman.”

Karda: Well the entire Saddam’s clan was also involved in the whole Iraqi government.

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: “Congressional Black Caucus members tried to object to the election outcome on the floor of the House; no Senator would sign the objections.”
 
Karda: Well, Kurds also tried to change the Iraqi government via the official ways, in 1974 for example. But the rest of the Iraqi government just didn’t listened to us. Actually they began to use the Iraqi army against Kurds in the name of Iraq; ironically Iraq is a country which was actually created by British government!

FAHRENHEIT 9/11 : “As the attack took place, Mr. Bush was on his way to an elementary school in Florida.  When informed of the first plane hitting the World Trade Center, where terrorists had struck just eight years prior, Bush just decided to go ahead with his photo opportunity.” 
 
Karda: Well when Iraq was attacked by the American troops Saddam Hussein began to search a place to hide. A place near by one of his castles lol! At this point G.W. Bush is a hero.

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: “Just couple of days after 9/11 G.W. Bush at least six private jets and nearly two dozen commercial planes carried the Saudis and the bin Ladens out of the U.S. after September 13th.  In all, 142 Saudis, including 24 members of the bin Laden family, were allowed to leave the country.”

Karda: It’s clear that G.W. Bush betrayed his nation just like our mighty Saddam Insane.

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: “After they were discharged, when Bush’s dad was head of the CIA, Bath opened up his own aviation business, after selling a plane to a man by the name of Salem bin Laden, heir to the second largest fortune in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi bin Laden Group.”

Karda: When Saddam Hussein became the president he made people believe that he is a ‘Said’, which is mean that you are a member of the family of Prophet Mohammed. The whole Iraq became his propriety, including sexy Iraqi women and girls. Odday, his oldest son, his name is certainly on list of records of ‘raping women’.
Jesus! Give me G. W. Bush! I prefer a dumb president rather a president with a son who is addicted to sex.

FAHRENHEIT 9/11 : “With all the weapons companies it owned, The Carlyle Group was in essence, the 11th largest defence contractor in the United States.”  

Karda: So G. W. Bush is a war president? Well, Saddam Hussein was also a war president, but sadly he didn’t win one single war! Not even against Kuwaiti’s! God! Shame on you!

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: “Bush tried to stop Congress from setting up its own 9/11 investigation.… When he couldn’t stop Congress, he then tried to stop an independent 9/11 commission from being formed.”

Karda: When saddam Hussein became the president of Iraq he tried to stop everybody who was against hem. Well he just used a simple method: Write everybody’s name that could form a threat, and then just kill them. Simple, isn’t it?

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: “In 1997, while George W. Bush was governor of Texas, a delegation of Taliban leaders from Afghanistan flew to Houston to meet with Unocal executives to discuss the building of a pipeline through Afghanistan.”

“Then in 2001, just five and a half months before 9/11, the Bush administration welcomed a special Taliban envoy to tour the United States to help improve the image of the Taliban government.” 

Karda: This one have nothing to do with Saddam Hussein, but a question which the American didn’t asked them selves at that time is the following question: “The Taliban were in Texas, so why should we not attack Texas instead of Iraq?”.

 
FAHRENHEIT 9/11:
“Hamid Karzai was a former Unocal advisor.”
"Bush also appointed as our envoy to Afghanistan Zalmay Khalilzad, who was also a former Unocal advisor."

 
Karda:
Well the American favourite Iraqi leader was Ahmed el-Chalabi. He was not a member of Unocal, some people say that he is gay. So don’t ask me difficult question and find the link by yourself.

 
FAHRENHEIT 9/11: “Congress did not read the Patriot Act before voting on it.“

Karda: Why American people are complaining about the Patriot Act? We, in the so called Iraq, didn’t have any kind of privacy under the Saddam’s regime. Oke, Saddam Hussein was terrorising Iraqi's , so Iraqi's couldn't  just ask hem to respect their privacy. But what is the argument of the American? Why they accepted the Patriot Act?  

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: "On March 19th, 2003, George W. Bush and the United States military invaded Iraq, which had never attacked or threatened to attack the United States. A nation that had never murdered a single American citizen." 
 
Karda: Well but Saddam Hussein bought his MDW from USA, so USA knew what they sold to Iraq. I don’t think that it’s a good idea to let your enemy know your dirty secrets, so why not attacking Iraq?

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: “The Coalition of the Willing included Palau, Costa Rica, Iceland, Romania, The Netherlands, and Afghanistan.”

Karda: Hmm they didn’t mentioned Kurdistan, well next time better.

FAHRENHEIT 9/11: "Out of the 535 members of Congress, only one had an enlisted son in Iraq."
 
Karda: Out whole Iraqi government, nobody had an enlisted son in the army. Well there were members of the Iraqi government who had sons that worked at the women prisoners, don’t ask me why!

Conclusion

After watching Fahrenheit 9/11 I will thank the American nation for choosing G.W. Bush as president. At least we, people from ME, and you, American, have one thing in common. We both overmanned by dumb leaders. I will also thank the American army for ‘liberating’ us. Well, to the American government I have nothing to say only: “It’s true that you liberated us and now take your price (oil) and don’t come here again! After all, you divided Kurdistan in 6 peaces and killed innocent Arab people. So don't play Mr. nice guy, we already know who you are, the only country who used Nuclear weapon against humanity!”

Mr Jalal Talabani and the Kirkuk Issue.

Mr Jalal Talabani and the Kirkuk Issue.

Yesterday Mr Jalal Talabani, chief of PUK, said on CNNTurk that he has a new plan for Kirkuk. He discussed his new plan with the Turkish authorities and the Turkish authorities welcomed his plan. From http://www.peyamner.com .

Some important points of Mr. Talabani’s new plan.

“Turkey most has the right to see what is going on in Kirkuk.”

Turcoman who lives in Kirkuk sees themselves as Iraqis. They have been always denying the fact that they are originally from Turkey. They see themselves actually as old as Assyrians. Just a normal question? If Turcoman sees themselves as Iraqi as the rest of Kurds, Arab ... etc why they want Turkey, their protector, to be in Kirkuk? Can’t they just trust the Iraqi government? Why Turcoman want Turkey to act as the moderator and why not UN for example? I just don’t trust these Turcoman who shouting and mooing that they are Iraqi and they love Iraq and on the other hand they worship Ataturk.

“Kirkuk will not be a part of any government”, said Mr. Talabani.

I don’t understand this one. Will we get the third federal state? Or are we just giving Kirkuk to Turkey? Kurds have fought for Kirkuk for about 60 years. Because of Kirkuk we went on war with Saddam Hussein. I am wondering if Mr. Jalal Talabani knows what is he doing? He is not the one who has the right to makes anti-Kurds plans and betrays Kurds. He supposes to protect our interests!

“If there are no problems in Kirkuk anymore, then people from Kirkuk will decide over their future”.

I support also this idea. This is at my point of view the best solution for Kirkuk. Only there is one big problem. There are more than 300.000 Kurds who kicked out of Kirkuk by Saddam Hussein. Let’s say there are also 300.000 Arabs who came in their places. Is it fair to decide over the future of Kirkuk in obscene of the real Kirkuki’s? Is it fair to let 300.000 outsiders to decide over the future of Kirkuk? I don’t think so!
