Jinwar: The all-female commune being created by Kurdish women to rid themselves of war and patriarchy
Read more at


http://talkradio.co.uk/news/jinwar-all- ... XYTU1lS.99

The women of Kurdistan have already earned international acclaim by playing a frontline role in the fight against Isis in northern Syria, driving the militants off their land.

Now a number of Kurdish women are going a step further, creating their own all-female commune designed to wipe away the stain of war and patriarchal sin.
Image
The project is called the Jinwar Free Women's Village Rojava and it is situated near the city of Dirbesiye on the Turkish-Syrian border. It was first announced last year, with the explicit aim of providing a refuge for women, free from violence and conflict. The first mud shelters, built for maximum ecological value, were built earlier this year - naturally, the builders were women.

Turkish troops arrive at northern Aleppo to fight Kurds
By Zen Adra - 21/06/2017
Image
Turkish Special Forces arrived, today, at northern Aleppo countryside to shore up its proxies in what might be a new crackdown against the Kurdish forces.

The reinforcements – greatly welcomed by local residents – were deployed to help the Turkish-backed Euphrates Shield – a coalition of FSA-affiliated factions – expel the Kurdish fighters from Tal Rifaat and other nearby towns as battles between the two warring parties re-erupted recently.

Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has vowed to use force to drive out the Kurds from the towns and villages they had seized earlier, accusing them of ethnic cleansing against the indigenous Arab inhabitants.

Hundreds of militants who have defected from the Islamic State have crossed the borders to southern Turkey as a first step to return to their countries in the Middle East, North Africa and Europe. 8O :shock: :?

Local sources reported dozens of the former ultraconservative militants now rallying in several towns and villages in southern Turkey after making it through the borders.

The same sources confirmed that 4 Saudi extremist militants have arrived at a little village in southern Turkey after paying $2000 each to smugglers.

Throughout the year, the Turkish border guards have shot dead scores – both civilians and fighters – while trying to cross the borders into Turkey.

The massive escape comes as the self-proclaimed Islamic State is increasingly losing more grounds to the Syrian Army and allied forces in central and Eastern Syria.....

Iraq: Thousands of Kurds rally for independence ahead of upcoming referendum
By News Desk - 14/09/2017

Image


Thousands of Kurds rallied in favour of independence in the Kurdistan Region capital Erbil, Wednesday, ahead of an upcoming referendum on Kurdish independence from Iraq on September 25.

Protesters dressed in Kurdish clothing played and sang traditional native songs during the rally. Many waved the flag of Kurdistan to show their support for an autonomous Kurdistan.

The historic referendum is set to take place on September 25, however the Iraqi parliament has rejected the plans and has authorised a resolution that allows Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to take measures to preserve the country’s existing borders.

The Kurdish population have been pushing for independence in a historical process dating back to the aftermath of World War Two, during which time Kurdish-populated regions were split between different countries as Middle Eastern borders were redrawn.....

Turkey, Iran furious over Kirkuk’s participation in independence referendum

Iran joined warnings issued by Turkey over plans by the local administration of the Iraqi province of Kirkuk to take part in next month’s Iraqi Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) independence referendum, saying it is “wrong, provocative and unacceptable.”

On Aug. 30, Tehran said “the Kirkuk council’s decision to take part in the Kurdistan region’s referendum is wrong, provocative and unacceptable.”

War drums on!


https://www.reuters.com/article/us-iran ... BZ09S?il=0

Tehran and Ankara fear the spread of separatism to their own Kurds. Iran also supports Shi‘ite groups who have been ruling or holding key security and government positions in Iraq since the 2003 U.S-led invasion which toppled Saddam Hussein.

Turkey, meanwhile, said on Sunday its aircraft launched strikes against Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) targets in northern Iraq’s Gara region on Saturday after spotting militants preparing to attack Turkish military outposts on the border.

”Turkey will never ever tolerate any status change or any new formations on its southern borders,“ Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said. ”The KRG will be primarily responsible for the probable developments after this referendum.

The KRG has resisted calls to delay the referendum by the United Nations, the United States and Britain who fear it could further destabilize the region.....


http://in.reuters.com/article/mideast-c ... BZ0D1?il=0

http://oilprice.com/Geopolitics/Interna ... istan.html

Ankara and Tehran seem to be preparing a combined military strategy to quell any Kurdish independence gains. However, these allies may have overlooked the changing position that Russia, Iran’s main ally in Syria, is currently taking inside the Kurdish movement.

Growing business links between Moscow and Erbil, such as the major deal just signed by Rosneft to build a vast gas export pipeline in Kurdistan, show that Moscow is once again playing a Russian roulette version of the Middle East chess game. Growing cooperation between the Kurdish government, led by the KDP, President Masoud Barzani, and Putin’s associates, could put the Kurds in a better position to achieve and maintain independence.

The West, represented by the U.S. and its European partners, plays a disputed and fledgling role. After promoting and supporting the de-facto Kurdish independent state after the removal of Saddam Hussein, while arming them during their battles against Daesh/IS and Al Qaeda, Western governments show a lack of stamina and political influence.

The already-weak position Western countries presently have in the Middle East is particularly apparent now. Washington, London, Brussels and Paris haven’t been willing to support the democratic moves made in Erbil, while also ignoring the growing instability and security issues confronting the Kurds in their home regions. From Washington and Europe, the Kurdish state shouldn’t expect a message of love.

Iraqi Kurds must give up on independence or go hungry - Erdogan

Turkey's president has said Iraqi Kurds could go hungry as a result of the punitive measures it is considering after Monday's independence referendum.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the head of the Kurdistan Regional Government of "treachery" for pressing ahead with the vote despite international opposition.
Massoud Barzani should now "give up on this adventure", he said.
Mr Erdogan has previously threatened to cut a vital Kurdish oil pipeline and stop lorries crossing Turkey's border.
Turkey fears that the emergence of an independent Kurdish state on its border will stoke separatist feeling in its own Kurdish minority.
The results of the referendum are yet to be declared, but a "yes" vote is expected.

In his latest barrage of warnings to Iraqi Kurdish leader Massud Barzani, Erdogan even warned that his region risked going short on food and clothing if Turkish sanctions were applied.

Iraq Says Turkey Backs Baghdad in Feud Over Kurd Oil Exports
By Khalid Al Ansary
28. September 2017, 12:38 MESZ 28. September 2017, 16:37 MESZ

Iraq said Turkey agreed to deal exclusively with its central government over exports of Kurdish crude oil, a step that could disrupt shipments from the independence-seeking Kurd region.

Turkey supports Iraq’s control over all crude that the OPEC nation exports through a Turkish-controlled pipeline, the Iraqi prime minister said Thursday. The comments suggest the Turks may be reviewing their policy of letting Iraq’s landlocked Kurds export oil independently through the same pipeline. Crude was flowing normally through the network on Thursday. The Kurds export less than 600,000 barrels a day, according to a tweet by the Kurdistan Regional Government’s Ministry of Natural Resources on Sept. 24.....

It's time for messages from a higher level. President Donald Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson or Secretary of Defense James Mattis could exercise some leverage -- not only to protect their Kurdish allies, but also to stabilize the region.

In public, the message should be that it's unacceptable to constrict the Kurdish region's economy by shutting down all of its borders and grounding all air travel to and from its regional capital. In private, the message should be tougher. Either Trump, Tillerson or Mattis should threaten to cut military and economic aid to Iraq and Turkey if they continue down a path toward war. There's no point in threatening the Iranians over this; they are and will remain rogues.

Kurds Reject Post-Vote Iraq Moves As ‘Collective Punishment’

Updated September 28, 2017

The Iraqi Kurdish regional government on Thursday rejected measures adopted by Baghdad in the wake of its independence vote as illegal and nothing more than “collective punishment”.

https://www.channelstv.com/2017/09/28/k ... unishment/

“The Kurdish Regional Government rejects all the decisions taken by the Iraqi government and parliament and regards them as collective punishment against the Kurds,” it said after a cabinet meeting in the region’s capital Arbil.

“These decisions are illegal and unconstitutional… They deny the constitutional rights of the Kurds,” it said, while reiterating, however, that the KRG was “ready for dialogue to resolve problems” with Baghdad......

“There is no need in the deployment of the armed forces, we will not allow the army to enter,” Najmiddin Karim said, reported Sputnik.

Moreover, on Wednesday, the Iraqi parliament instructed the government to return oil fields in regions disputed with the Kurds to Baghdad’s control.

“The government needs to return northern fields in Kirkuk and disputed regions under surveillance and control of the federal oil ministry,” the parliament’s document reads.

Earlier in the day, the Iraqi parliament ruled to give mandate to Prime Minister Haider Abadi to deploy the armed forces into the disputed region of Kirkuk.

In an interview with CNN, Crocker said the US made a “mistake” in criticizing the referendum when it was clear that it was going to be held.

The criticism “may have emboldened Baghdad to take a harsher posture than it otherwise would [have],” he said.

Crocker also urged Washington to “manage” the escalating tensions in the region, especially as Iraq, Turkey, and Iran have threatened to impose sanctions on the Kurds, while also conducting menacing military maneuvers following the historic vote...

Turkey has threatened potentially crippling restrictions on oil trading with Iraqi Kurds after they backed independence from Baghdad in a referendum that has alarmed Ankara as it faces a separatist insurgency from its own Kurdish minority.

Most oil that flows through a pipeline from Iraq to Turkey comes from Kurdish sources and a cut-off would severely damage the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG), which relies on sales of crude for almost all its hard currency revenues.

‘Free Kurdistan’ inevitable, and war may be unavoidable
The Sykes-Picot Agreement divided the Kurds among Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey in a contiguous region separated only by state boundaries. But despite these state boundaries, Kurds are deeply connected, extending all kinds of support to one another, and are one of the largest stateless ethnic groups in the world. Kurds became US allies in the 1990-91 Gulf War, and their importance for the United States was substantially increased in post-2003 Iraq.

The Kurdish Peshmerga are now the single most important on-ground ally of the United States against ISIS, both in Iraq and Syria. The US has, in recent years, armed the Kurds in both of those countries to the teeth, and nothing could be more unnerving than this for governments in the region that have kept Kurds marginalized for decades.

The referendum for “Free Kurdistan” in northern Iraq, which includes oil-rich Kirkuk, is unacceptable for the regional central governments. Non-Kurds in the region see it as the first step toward a domino effect of Kurdish separatism in all four countries having a Kurdish presence. As Kurds in Iraq have voted in favor of a Free Kurdistan, the Kurds in Syria (which Turkey sees as terrorists), supported by the US, are implementing a plan to establish an independent Kurdish parliamentary system in Syria.

The United States does not recognize the independence referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan and urges an end to “threats of reciprocal actions,” U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in a statement on Friday.

“The United States does not recognize the Kurdistan Regional Government’s unilateral referendum held on Monday. The vote and the results lack legitimacy and we continue to support a united, federal, democratic and prosperous Iraq,” Tillerson said.

“We urge calm and an end to vocal recriminations and threats of reciprocal actions,” he added.

The Oil must flow!

The development of oil and gas reserves in the autonomous Kurdish Region of Iraq (KRI) is a recent phenomenon which began after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq. Despite the KRI’s significant energy potential, it was impossible for international companies to consider investment prior to this date, mostly because of geopolitical uncertainties after the Iran-Iraq War.... :!: :idea: :arrow:

PEAK OIL

A KURDISH RADICAL LEFT movement influenced by anarchism is, improbably, now receiving Pentagon support in the war for northern Syria. This movement, in fact, is now the United States’s closest partner among the indigenous forces fighting to take the Islamic State’s capital at Raqqa. This paradox is examined in a profusion of new books about the role of the Kurds in the world’s most confusing ongoing war.
Supporters of the Kurdish movement, which has established an autonomous zone in its region of Rojava, see it as a utopian experiment in direct democracy, and were inspired by its women fighters successfully resisting the ISIS invasion of its territory. The movement’s detractors, in contrast, call it an authoritarian one-party state in league with the Assad regime. There has been growing tension between the Rojava Kurds and the main Syrian opposition.....

Intense fighting breaks out between pro-gov’t and pro-Kurdish forces in northern Iraq
By Leith Fadel - 14/10/20173

Tensions between Turkmen and Kurdish residents of Tuz Kharmatu have been at an all-time high after the recent Iraqi Kurdistan independence referendum, which saw the latter emancipate itself from Baghdad.

Turkish soldiers and armoured vehicles have crossed into Syria as part of an operation Ankara says is aimed at stopping fighting in Idlib province.

A military statement said the forces would set up observation posts to help monitor a "de-escalation zone" in line with an agreement with Russia and Iran.
Idlib is largely controlled by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), a jihadist alliance linked to al-Qaeda.
It also borders the Kurdish enclave of Afrin, which Turkey wants to contain.

A situation out of control, if Turkey invades the Kurdistan
by Savvas Kalèndéridès
Ankara and Bagdad have reached a secret agreement to create a new means of communication between them and to cut the customs revenues of Erbil, the regional Kurdish government. Iraq will deploy 13,000 men from 12 October to guarantee the control of this route, the security of which will be guaranteed by the Turkish army from November. Then it will be possible for Turkey to invade the Iraqi Kurdistan.
