Over 5,500 Iraqis have been slaughtered since the invasion of ISIS, with tens of thousands of Christians, Shias and Kurds demonised and forced to flee their homes. The world doesn’t seem to care because Iraq is not in Gaza. For those of you posting about Gaza only, I wish you just make an effort to see what’s been happening in Iraq and stand up to this cancer that’s plaguing both Iraq and Syria… Isn’t it about humanity after all?!

Yezidi cemetery in Kuchak, Armenia | Walter Callens

Several villages are located on the highway between Ashtarak and Aparan, their graveyards detected by peaked roofs built over the graves.

Yezidis belong to the Kurdish race and are regarded by Kurds as those who keep their original religion. They speak a northern dialect of Kurdish (Kurmanji). Scholars believe that the Yezidis’ religion is one of the last surviving offshoots of a faith even older than Judaism or Zoroastrianism, and which it heavily influenced. Known as the “cult of the angels”, this early Indo-European faith held that there was only one God but that he created seven angels to serve him. Chief among these, for Yezidis, is the fallen angel who disobeyed his maker. As a result, outsiders have labeled Yezidis “devil worshippers.” 

In Armenia, Yezidis are predominantly a pastoral community, with villages concentrated in the central highlands and along alpine meadows in the upper elevations of the country. The community is very shy, though children love to gawk at visitors and have their pictures taken.

Thoughts and prayers to all my brothers on the front lines in Iraq, fighting off foreign terrorists and traitors all while fasting in the brutal summer heat of Iraq. No one is protesting in solidarity with you. No hashtags. No banners. Despite all that I pray to God to keep you all standing strong, and to send those bearded rats to the depths of hell where they belong.

Ok could someone explain to me why some kurds from iraq wear the iraqi flag or have a iraqi flag but kurds from turkey wouldnt be caught dead wearing that disgraceful turkish flag or even own anything with that flag on it
since saddam and ataturk were probably twins in the life…

That does make sense now but younger generation of kurds from turkey havent been effected by ataturk yet we will never be caught dead with the turkish flag

I mean ive seen people older than me wave there iraqi flags with honour and they say there a patriotic kurd so im confused with those types

kurds in bakur have been effected in every way by ataturk through his legacy which is so strong in turkey that the country and it’s policies will probably never change. iraq under saddam’s regime was just a phase. iraq was created through racism and genocide. turkey was. i mean you could probably argue that iraq was through the British but it didn’t last.

older kurds who do that are jash

you can go on and shut yourself in a closet.

literal trash of a human being.

The Final Stage: Rojava

qasaweh:

From 1925 to 1946, Syria was a mandate state under French rule. The French crafted a political infrastructure resting on a classically colonial logic: the country was ruled over from three centers with three different governmental infrastructures. In the west, the Alawites were in control, in the south the Druze were in control, while Damascus and Aleppo, where Sunnis constituted a majority, were governed through a different set of governmental and political infrastructures. That is how the French managed the situation in Syria. Across the board in all of these governmental infrastructures, however, Kurds remained categorically and practically unrecognized as a community, let alone as a people. Under their mandate rule over the course of twenty-one years in Syria, the French did not recognize the rights of the Kurdish people. Due to their interest-based relationship with Turkey, the French in fact subjected the Kurds to various forms of oppression.

When French colonialism came to an end and Syria emerged as an independent and sovereign state in 1946, the situation for the Kurds did not change, given that Syria’s first sovereign administration also refused to recognize the Kurds. Many intellectuals calling for linguistic and cultural rights were arrested and imprisoned. Many more were forced to flee the country. The union of Egypt and Syria around the axis of Arab nationalism between 1958 and 1962 only meant more oppression for Kurds. Kurds who demanded their rights in Iraq were tortured in Syria. In short, Arab governments, which came into conflict over many other issues, could establish an easy alliance when the question came to the recognition and rights of Kurds.

In 1962, the Syrian state stripped seventy thousand Kurds of their Syrian citizenship and subsequently declared them as “foreigners living in the country.” Their rights to education, to travel abroad, or to own property were confiscated. Today, this population is estimated to have increased to three to four hundred thousand.

The year 1963 is another important date in Syrian history: the year that the Ba’th party came to power through a coup d’état. The Party not only declared Syria to be an “Arab country,” but also defined Kurds as “refugees displaced from Turkey.” Based on this latter definition, Kurds have been denied all of their rights: Kurdish identity was banned, and the names of villages and towns were changed. In other words, what Turkey had done in the 1920s, Syria did fifty years later. Even writing in Kurdish was deemed as a serious crime, with hefty periods and violent methods of incarceration.

if kurds aren’t cowards then I need help. Biggest cowards ever. just get out of Iraq. Go back to Persia or some shit. They labeled a part of Iraq as “Kurdistan” and they think that’s what we see it as. Nah. If you take a forever21 bag and slap a Gucci logo on it. It’s still forever21. Same story with Israel and Palestine. Just because they slapped Israel on the map. Doesn’t mean it’s Israel. And if you see it as otherwise. Then we all might as well slap Gucci on our bags and call it a day.

 #Kurds #are #trash

ahahhahahahah angry, hurt iraqis always make me laugh :’)

we might as well slap my shit on to your face because that’s all you’re good for as a person accusing the native population of a place for unlawfully annexing their own homeland. eat my shit.

looks like you’re gonna need to go get help, honey buns, because we’re not cowards.

these are the photos of ISIS burning down churches in mosul.

they have been desecrating churches and beheading christians. [click here for a GRAPHIC photo of an assyrian christian being beheaded - trust me, you don’t want to see it]

ISIS has threatened christians with death if they do not leave mosul, convert, or pay jizya (a tax implemented on non-muslims (jews, christians aka dhimmi) in islamic empires). their homes have been signified as a christian home by the painting of the arabic character ن, it stands for ‘n’ meaning ‘nasara/nazarene’ which means christian.

the assyrians are facing a genocide AGAIN. christians of the middle east are facing genocide AGAIN.

why is the iraqi military standing by on this?? why aren’t they doing anything?? once the kurdish peshmerga secure the region and the border they’re going to mosul but who knows how long that’ll take.

please reblog.
