Yazidi Slavery, Child Trafficking, Should Turkey Remain In NATO?

The Daily Stirrer has ben asking the question for several years, given its appalling record on human rights, its treatment of Kurdish, Druze and Yazidi minorities, and the very shoddy version of the democratic process by which de fact dictators are legitimised, how was Turkey ever considered for membership of the EU, and how did it ever become a member of NATO, The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, when as we as failing to meet membership conditions on all the aforementioned conditions it is nowhere near the Altantic Ocean,

HOW THE FUCK IS TURKEY STILL A MEMBER OF NATO?

Seems other people are asking too.

by Uzay Bulut via The Gatestone Institute,

August 3 marked the fourth anniversary of the ISIS invasion of Sinjar, Iraq and the start of the Yazidi genocide. Since that date in 2014, approximately 3,100 Yazidis either have been executed or died of dehydration and starvation, according to the organization Yazda. At least 6,800 women and children were kidnapped by ISIS terrorists and subjected to sexual and physical abuse, captives were forced to convert to Islam, and young boys were separated from their families and forced to become child soldiers, according to a report entitled “Working Against the Clock: Documenting Mass Graves of Yazidis Killed by the Islamic State.” Moreover, 3,000 Yazidi women and girls are believed to remain in ISIS captivity, but their whereabouts are unknown.

One Yazidi child recently sold in Ankara, Turkey, and then freed through the mediation efforts of Yazidi and humanitarian-aid organizations, according to a report by Hale Gönültas, a journalist with the Turkish news website Gazete Duvar. On July 30, three days after Gönültas’s article appeared, she received a death threat on her mobile phone from a Turkish-speaking man, who told her that he knew her home address, and then shouted, “Jihad will come to this land. Watch your step!”

This is not the first time that Gönültas has been threatened for writing about ISIS atrocities. In May 2017, she received similar telephone threats after posting two articles: “200,000 children in ISIS camps,” and “ISIS holds 600 children from Turkey.”

In addition, a video of Turkish-speaking children receiving military training from ISIS was sent to her email address. In the video, in which one of them is seen cutting off someone’s head with a knife, the children are saying, “We are here for jihad.”

‘Islamic State’ kidnaps dozens of women and children in Syria

ISRAEL-DRUZE-SYRIA-CONFLICT

The war in Syria is not quite over yet. While forces loyal to the secularist dictator Bashar al Assad are now in control of the more populous northern and coastal regions, the Sunni Muslim fanatics of ISIS fight on in more remote parts of the country.

Dozens of Druze women and children in Southern Syria were abducted earlier this month when their villages were attacked by IS. Several men from the area are unaccounted for, but it is not yet clear whether they have been kidnapped. Our parent publication The Daily Stirrer has reported on the cruel treatment handed out to Yazidi women kidnapped by ISIS in northern Syria, and the women of the Druze can expect similar treatment.

The Druze, like the Yazidi, are a small Middle Eastern religious sect whose faith is based on an eclectic system of doctrines including elements of Islam, Christianity, Zoroastrianism and Hinduism and is characterised by a cohesion and loyalty among its members (at times politically significant) that has enabled them to maintain for centuries the separate identity and close-knit communities of this distinctive faith. The Druze numbered more than 1,000,000 in the early 21st century and live mostly in Syria, and Lebanon, with smaller communities in Israel, Jordan, and abroad. They call themselves muwaḥḥidūn (“monotheists”). Learn more of their history and culture.

 

At least 36 Druze women and children were taken by terrorists of the so-called “Islamic State” (IS) when the militant group’s guerillas attacked their village in the southern province of Sweida, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Monday.

The British watchdog organisation, which has operatives inside Syria, said the abductions took place on Wednesday during a massive assault by IS that left more than 200 people dead.

“Twenty women and 16 children were kidnapped by ‘Islamic State’ on July 25. Four of them managed to flee to Druze areas, two others died and 30 are still in captivity,” Rami Abdel-Rahman, the head of the Observatory, said.

He told French news agency AFP that 17 men from villages raided by IS were still unaccounted for, but it was unclear if they are captives or dead.Though the attackers carried IS flags the organisation has not yet claimed responsibility for the kidnappings and there are no details regarding them on its propaganda channels.

IS, which declared a self-styled “caliphate” in 2014 across Syria and Iraq, still holds small isolated areas of Syria’s southern desert. That includes parts of Sweida province  and pockets in the neighboring province of Daraa.

Sweida is mostly held by the Syrian government and has the highest concentration of the secretive Druze minority. The province has so far been relatively insulated from Syria’s seven-year civil war. Last week’s attacks were the bloodiest ever seen in the province, as well as some of the deadliest waged by IS in Syria.

Though largely defeated in Syria, Iraq and the Kurdish region of eastern Turkey, IS has established footholds in Libya, Afghanistan, Mali and other areas destabilised by western meddling in local affairs.

As Obama Launches Another Iraq Assault. Who Are ISIS

I have been consistently against western (FUKUS axis) interventions in domestic politics of middle eastern states. There comes a time however when intervention is necessary. Thus we must accept the necessity of the USA’s latest military adventure, the reconvening of the war in Iraq.

So why, having so strongly opposed calls for the west to go to war, in Libya, Syria, Yemen, Ukraine etc. and further back opposed interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan, have I had a change of heart at this stage?

There was no doubt in this case that the ISIS (now renamed Islamic State Caliphate) were set on a course that could only result in the extermination of the peaceful and reclusive Yazidi, a sect regarded in the west as Musli in a similar way to the Sufi, but seen by the extremists of the Islamic State as heretics and thus more of an ‘abomination’ than Christians, Jews, Infidels, homosexuals, eating shellfish or wearing cotton guzzies with a woollen sweater.

isis hold peace talks with hereticsISIS negotiators in Iraq hold peace talks with Heretics

Biggest news of the week was Obama’s announcement he would become the fourth US president in a row to order military action in Iraq, explicitly targeting the ISIS jihadists, the far bigger question are the developments that spurred the administration to finally act. Anyone would think “Must hate Iraq” is in the job description.

The New York Times reported that “as the tension mounted in Washington” the catalyst for Obama’s decision was sudden developments surrounding the Kurdistan capital, Erbil. “Kurdish forces who had been fighting the militants in three nearby Christian villages abruptly fell back toward the gates of the city, fanning fears that the city might soon fall. By Thursday morning, people were thronging the airport, desperate for flights out of town. “The situation near Erbil was becoming more dire than anyone expected,” a senior administration official told reporters, speaking on the condition of anonymity to describe the White House’s internal deliberations. “We didn’t want another Benghazi.”

The reason for this is that the US has an embassy in Erbil: that falling to ISIS would be the supreme punch in the gut for an administration whose foreign policy has become the butt of HIGNFY and Daily Show jokes.

In other words, Obama merely took to arms after the threat of another massive foreign humiliation became all too real and when the reality that the Kurdish defense was about to fall. Of course, the actual stated reason for intervention was different, a far more noble one. From a White House press release:

At a 90-minute meeting in the Situation Room on Thursday morning, Mr. Obama was briefed again about the plight of the Iraqis stranded on Mount Sinjar. Members of an ancient religious sect known as Yazidi, they were branded as devil worshipers by the militants. The women were to be enslaved; the men were to be slaughtered.

Officials told Mr. Obama there was a real danger of genocide, under the legal definition of the term. “While we have faced difficult humanitarian challenges, this was in a different category,” said an official. “That kind of shakes you up, gets your attention.”

At 11:20 a.m., Mr. Obama left the meeting to travel to Fort Belvoir, Va., where he signed a bill expanding health care for veterans. He had all but made up his mind to authorize airstrikes, officials said, and while he was away, his team drafted specific military options.

When the president returned to the White House barely an hour later, he went back into meetings with his staff. By then, there were news reports of airdrops and possible strikes. But the White House “hunkered down,” an official said, refusing to comment on the reports for fear of endangering a nighttime airdrop over Mount Sinjar.

Mr. Obama did not announce the operations until dawn had broken in Iraq, a delay of several hours that added to the panic in Erbil. Reports of explosions near the city at dusk on Thursday night sowed confusion after Kurdish officials said the United States had begun airstrikes on the militants. The Pentagon flatly denied the reports.

The saddest irony of all this is The Islamic State Caliphate, the rebellion formerly known as ISIS were born out of the ragtag army of rebels, dissidents, mercenaries and fanatics but together by foreign agents, funded with Saudi and Qatari money and armed with American weapons to bring about the overthrow of bashar Al Assad in Syria.

If that intervention, the regime change campaigns in Libya and Egypt the drone strikes on Pakistan’s tribal areas, the Iraq war to remove Saddam, the Afghan invasion and a few other foreign policy fuck ups had not taken place because the west had elected non – interventionist leaders instead of warmongering corporate lackeys, we would not have to be bombing Iraq again.

Places like Iraq, Libya, Syria and the rest are not suited to western style liberal democracy and no amount of hand wringing, bleeding heart, wailing and gnashing of teeth will change that.

To preempt any intervention by our resident left wing intellectual idiot who likes to tell me that I cannot possibly suggest life under a tyrant like Saddam, Gadaffi or Assad represented any kind of order, I’ll tell the moron right now to fuck the fucking fuck off and don’t even think about commenting until he has sworn statements from members of the Yazidi telling of how slaughter at the hands of ISIS is utopia compared to stable and peaceful if not quite free life under Saddam.

All things are relative, and living with the censorship, lack of democracy and oppression of a tryant probably seems like heaven compared to living with the constant fear of a bullet in the back, a machete through the skull or a visit from the human organ noshers. If you know what I mean.
