Zionists Form Group to Promote Kurdish Statehood

By Richard Edmondson

Perhaps at some point we’ll see a sly Zionist pop up somewhere claiming the Kurds are an “ancient biblical people.”

(And doubtless, if so, he’d have plenty of money to buy off plenty of historians to “verify” his claim).

And maybe in the not-so-distant future we could even anticipate publication of a brand new modern English translation of the Bible with a rewording of the Book of Genesis to include the following: “So Abraham and his wife Sarah and his nephew Lot set out from Harran, but on the way they stopped off and got down and partied with their cousins, the Kurds, before heading off to conquer the land of Caanan.”

Don’t laugh. In the world we’re presently living in absurdities of this nature are well within the possible.

Kurdish Military Leader Warns Syrian Army Against Crossing the Euphrates

[ Ed. note – You’d think with ISIS on the brink of defeat that things would be cooling down in Syria, but the obverse seems to be the case. America’s new ally, the Kurds, are now warning the Syrian Army to refrain from crossing the Euphrates River. This comes just as Israel has expressed support for an independent Kurdish state in northern Iraq. Despite the gains by Russia and Syria, the Oded Yinon plan still seems very much in play. ]

A History of Violence: The Myth of the Moderate Kurdish Rebel

Sarah Abed has finally posted part 3 of her series on the Kurds. I put up a commentary on the first two parts back in July in which I wrote, by way of introduction:

What are we to think of the Kurds–often portrayed by mainstream media as gallant freedom fighters, with lots of cute girls fighting in their ranks? Ah, but now we see that by and large they have cast their lot with the US in its efforts at regime change in Syria. This de facto places the Kurds in what would seem to be some very atrocious alliances, including with Israel, the Saudis, and, yes…ISIS.

So did the Kurds make a deal with the devil? Are they fallen angels? Were they ever angels to begin with? Sarah Abed has posted the first two installments of a three-part series that delves into these questions. In this series, she analyzes, as one Mint Press editor describes it, “the role that some Kurdish factions have played throughout history in helping major powers create chaos in the Middle East – from the Kurdish uprising in Iraq in the 1960s to the ongoing conflict in Syria today.”

In her latest installment, Abed discusses Kurdish complicity in the Armenian genocide, as well as what she describes as “a centuries-long history of persecuting minority groups.” It is a history which has included attacks against Assyrians and Yazidis as Kurds have endeavored to establish their own state.

The Kurds: Washington’s Weapon of Mass Destabilization

What are we to think of the Kurds–often portrayed by mainstream media as gallant freedom fighters, with lots of cute girls fighting in their ranks? Ah, but now we see that by and large they have cast their lot with the US in its efforts at regime change in Syria. This de facto places the Kurds in what would seem to be some very atrocious alliances, including with Israel, the Saudis, and, yes…ISIS.
