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.
The recent assassination of the Russian ambassador in Ankara was possibly perpetrated by Israel-linked forces which want to destabilize Turkey and damage its warming relations with Moscow and Tehran, according to an American scholar and political analyst.
Dr. Kevin Barrett, an author, political commentator and a founding member of the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Thursday.
[ Ed. note – Below is an article that was published Tuesday by Sputnik, the subject of which is an article by a writer at the New York Daily News. The writer’s name is Gersh Kuntzmann. In his article for the Daily News, Kuntzmann expresses glee over the assassination of the Russian Ambassador Andrey Karlov, referring to Vladimir Putin as a “murderous dictator” and to Karlov as “the human embodiment of policies that deployed bunker busters to kill babies.” He also suggests that Karlov’s Turkish assassin, Mevlut Mert Altintas, will one day be “vindicated” and regarded as a hero.

[ Ed. note – Iyad Ameen Madani, the secretary general of the so-called Organization of Islamic Cooperation, says “We don’t see a position for President Bashar Assad in any future Syrian solution.” The fact that Madani is a former official of the Saudi monarchy and that the “conference” where he made this statement took place in Turkey, one of the principle backers of ISIS, probably tells us all we need to know. Nonetheless, Mark Glenn, in the video above, offers some additional thoughts on the matter.
Meanwhile, the Syrian people are voting today to elect members to their parliament–which is as it should be. All people should have the right to choose their own leaders–not have them selected for them by foreign governments. ]
