The reality of what has been happening in Syria- The ANNEXATION by FORCE of Syria’s territory is never mentioned in NATO media. Alternative (so called) or main stream.
Annex: the act of acquiring something (especially territory) by conquest or occupation = theft.
We’re supposed to believe a "kurdish Syria” is just happenstance. Organically taking place. I’ve said this before and I will say it again- The making of this kurdish Syria is similar to the making of both Kosovo & Israel. A fictional narrative accompanies them all- Plucky freedom fighters actually terrorists. Ethnic cleansing, raping and pillaging buried under obfuscation (a land with no people/a people with no land) and feel good language to cover up the reality of the situation
This documentary will of course hit all the right perception managing memes. Pay attention readers because this is how the fictional history taught to future generations is made.
Toronto documentary filmmaker Nadim Fetaih (an Egyptian, who also made a documentary about the so called Egyptian revolution ) is on the ground, capturing the revolution that’s taking place as the people of Northern Syria emerge from under ISIS rule.
Women taking power in ways the Middle East has never before seen. Men, at their side, taking the radical transformation in stride.
And together, by consensus, both fighting tooth and nail against the Islamic State — and winning — liberating towns and villages in northern Syria with the promise of a new kind of freedom, where all are welcome to a fair share of collective self-rule, regardless of gender, religion or ethnicity.How many feel good memes in those few paragraphs? WOW! The illusion of equality for all.
It reads like a revolutionary daydream from John Lennon’s songbook. But it is actually happening throughout the sliver of terrain known as Rojava, the predominantly Kurdish territory abutting Syria’s border with Turkey.
The Islamic State group doesn’t like it. Turkey doesn’t like it. Bashar Assad doesn’t like it. Yet the quiet revolution ( a distinctly Canadian meme) in Rojava isn’t just taking root; it is growing, thanks in part to the White House, which has deputized the mostly Kurdish revolutionary fighters as America’s most effective boots on the ground on the Syrian side of the campaign against the Islamic State.
The fruits of the U.S. alliance with Syria’s Kurdish paramilitary fighters — the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, and their female counterparts, YPJ — became especially clear over Christmas, with the Kurds leading a four-day sweep south from Kobani, snipping some 640 square kilometres from the caliphate’s map and seizing back from the Islamic State a key piece of infrastructure, the Tishrin Dam.Ah, that's Syria's territory and Syria's dam?! No matter! Why let the facts weigh down a fictional & thoroughly deceptive narrative?
Throughout the operation and ever since, independent Toronto filmmaker Nadim Fetaih has been on the ground with a crew of two other Canadians, capturing the changes unfolding as the fragile Rojava revolution takes hold. Fetaih doesn’t expect to release his documentary until 2017 — today he is sharing exclusive images and insights from the project with the Star.
“We’ve been able to get access inside the military complex in Kobani and spend time with the wounded fighters — a fairly even 50-50 split of men and women and they’re all badasses.Like the IDF? Men and Women both 'badasses' Very pop culturally appealing.
Among the bigger questions: Is the transformation in Rojava a singularly Kurdish national effort?
Or does it have potential to become a model for the broader Arab world beyond?
The transformation of Rojova ? (which didn’t exist) is not a singular Kurdish effort!
What a stupid question! We already know- “The fruits of the U.S. alliance with Syria’s Kurdish paramilitary fighters” , makes abundantly clear this is not a singular effort, but rather a planned and supported annexation of Syria’s territory- I won’t use the feel good transformation word.
“ Or does it have potential to become a model for the broader Arab world beyond?”
In what context? A new Sykes Picot? A 2nd Israel?
Can't stomach any more of the Toronto Star article- You can read it for yourselves.
|Oh look a boy and 'pet goat' smiling|
Fetaih, 27, came to Canada at age four with his parents, both Egyptian political activists. He grew up in a home where political awareness — and the regime of former Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak — was routine conversation around the dinner table.
