Kurds Attacked

Four Turkish soldiers were killed in Northern Iraq fighting the Kurdish PKK (al-Jazeera). Aspiring President for Life Recep Erdogan <<has troops in Syria and Iraq on his anti-Kurd crusade.

Iran has launched missile and drone attacks on Kurds in the Northern Iraqi town of Koya, killing 13 (al-Jazeera). According to the article “Tariq Haidari, the mayor of Koya, said that one of the dead was a pregnant woman.” The Ayatollah Khameni’s <<Iranian government has accused Kurds of supporting Iranian protesters that have been demonstrating for the last 11 days. The protests erupted after the death of Masha Amini while in custody for not wearing a hijab (Huffington Post).

Did you know? Karl Marx and Freiderich Engels described and elevated both Socialism and Communism?

Yazidism, alternatively Sharfadin or (Kurdish) Şerfedîn is the religion of the Yazidi people (Wikipedia). “There is a disagreement among scholars and in Yazidi circles on whether the Yazidi people are a distinct ethnoreligious group or a religious sub-group of the Kurds.” “..the 2014 Yazidi genocide that was carried out by the Islamic State saw over 5,000 Yazidis killed and thousands of Yazidi women and girls forced into sexual slavery, as well as the flight of more than 500,000 Yazidi refugees.” (Wikipedia)

In the Yazidi myth of creation, Tawûsê Melek refused to bow before Adam, the first human, when God ordered the Seven Angels to do so. The command was actually a test, meant to determine which of these angels was most loyal to God by not prostrating themselves to someone other than their creator (Wikipedia).

What do Erdogan, Khameni and the Islamic State have in common? They are trying to destroy the Kurds and Yazidis. Someone and his djinn don’t like their beliefs anymore than they like the religion of the Jews.
