And Moses said...Followers of Judaism to Iraq?

Of course, I'm paraphrasing:

Keeping in mind: 


Now, read below:

Kurds urge Jews to return to Iraq

Mamsani called upon Jews whose ancestors lived in Kurdistan to return to the northern Iraqi province to visit – and even to live.

“The number of known Jews or families with Jewish heritage grows as we discover individuals who have been quiet for decades, or as some Kurdish and Iraqi Jews return from the diaspora for long-term business,” said Mamsani. “Jews would be surprised to find that they are freer and safer here than in certain European capitals.”
That quotation has a familiar ring to it. I could almost here Netanyahu expressing that same sort of sentiment... Cause Europe isn't safe for jews?

Link  : We say to the Jews, to our brothers and sisters, Israel is your home and that of every Jew. Israel is waiting for you with open arms.”

“We believe they can live here,” Jaffar Ibrahim Eminki, a deputy speaker in the Kurdish parliament, told Fox News.
 Some Jewish activists in Iraq understand the likelihood of Jews immigrating to the area are slim.
 While some other Jewish activists might understand the likelihood of Jews migrating to Iraq are quite probable.
“They are not moving back from anywhere; they are simply more comfortable revealing a Jewish connection,” said Edwin Shuker, an Iraqi Jewish businessman involved in the preservation and restoration of Jewish religious sites in the Middle East.
Israel is kind of small-  However greater Israel or Israel 2.0 can certainly hold them all


 It's getting more and more obvious now.....................

  3. What is Russia's relationship with the Kurds? Is Putin supporting this Kurdistan? Would it be good/bad for Russia if there was a Kurdistan? I have read that he is supplying the Kurds with arms...is this true?

    2. Well, one Kurdish source states that they have had no contact:

      But WSJ says they have:

      Also, you have written that the pkk and Yazidis are allies but a Kurdish source here is stating that the Yazidis are afraid of them
      http://basnews.com/index.php/en/news/kurdistan/275135
      What would you say?

    4. Ally: the situation with Russia is confused or unclear and I've addressed it to the best of my ability

      Some of Yazidi Kurds may be afraid of the PKK, but, that doesn't mean they all are. Many kurds are afraid of the PKK- but not all of them

      And fear may not be keeping them away
      from your article

      "Despite the presence of PKK guerrillas in the district, the mayor of the district said that lack of public services is another factor which hinders the IDPs from returning.

      Despite the presence of the PKK, they'd likely return if there were public services.

    5. Thank you for your reply. Your writing is very interesting and I like reading your page. But how do you know all of this information??? Where are you from originally? My dad is from turkey so I know from him but you know a lot.

    6. "how do you know all of this information???"

      I read. Lots of lots of information from varied sources

      Where are you from originally?

      I'm from Canada- Originally and presently

    7. Ally: if you wish to offer some input, a turkish perspective, from you Dad, I'd love to read it
      It's up to you of course

    8. I am from England, UK. My mum is English and dad is Turkish. I have no problem with giving you his input. in fact, his sister is married to a Kurd and lives in Diyarbakir which is a kurdish city. What you wrote about the PKK is true. The Kurds in the southeast are not supporters of this group and many people have had their kids kidnapped and areas terrorized by this group. 90% of the trouble is caused by them. Although, many Kurds in Europe are supporting this group and are trying to play the 'victim' but the real Kurds who are living in the southeast are fleeing because of them. I just don't understand how the Kurds are being portrayed as these 'secular freedom fighters' when they are the most Islamic people in Turkey. A few weeks ago, there was going to be a gay pride march in diyarbakir like there is in Istanbul, Ankara, etc but the Kurds there didn't want it and were protesting against it so it was cancelled. They are all Muslim people and a lot of them do support Erdogan because he is Islamic and actually gives them more rights than most of the other previous Turkish nationalist, secular leaders. Many Kurds live in western Turkey too and they always laugh at my blonde hair when I go there...just hope that we can find peace between the people and not pieces. You can ask me for more information if you want :)

    9. Hi Ally:

      Thanks very much for sharing that :)
      I appreciate it a great deal.
      I too hope all people, always can find peace and not pieces. It the reason I write this blog. It's always been the only reason.

      "My mum is English and dad is Turkish"

      My mother is Canadian of british descent and my dad is from Italy (southern Italy) So I totally get the skin comment-

      Your dad has a sister who is married to a kurdish man in Diyarbakir (making sure I have this correct)- which indeed, from my understanding is a city with a large Kurdish population-

      "What you wrote about the PKK is true"

      I figured it was.

      "The Kurds in the southeast are not supporters of this group and many people have had their kids kidnapped and areas terrorized by this group"

      I've written about this too. And am aware of the extortion and terrorism they face from the PKK

      "90% of the trouble is caused by them. Although, many Kurds in Europe are supporting this group and are trying to play the 'victim' but the real Kurds who are living in the southeast are fleeing because of them."

      I am all to aware of this.And did my best to raise awareness of this fact. I have many posts here explaining the situation and the feelings of the kurds in Turkey, most of them as you point out muslims- sunni muslims, most very devout. And many of them obviously voted for Erdogan and the AKP government.

      "I just don't understand how the Kurds are being portrayed as these 'secular freedom fighters' when they are the most Islamic people in Turkey"

      This is the power of the media at work- Nonsensical stories about 'heroic kurds' litter multiple news sources and other's pass along the fabrications in social media as if they are truth- not a second thought is given to them- the words are not carefully read-

      Not only are they the most Islamic people they form the back bone of some of the worst and I means depraved, disgusting terror groups out there

      Look at these names- then think about the vicious acts they have undertaken- ask yourself why the US and company will negotiate with these persons?

      https://www.nationalsecurity.gov.au/Listedterroristorganisations/Pages/Ansar-alIslam.aspx

      : Ansar al-Islam Army, Ansar al-Sunna, Army of Ansar al-Islam, Devotees of Islam, Followers of Islam in Kurdistan, Jaish Ansar al-Islam, Jaish Ansar al-Sunna, Jund al-Islam, Kurdish Taliban, Kurdistan Supporters of Islam, Partisans of Islam, Protectors of Islam, Protectors of the Sunni Faith, Soldiers of God, Soldiers of Islam, Supporters of Islam in Kurdistan.

      It is because they work with US/NATO/Israel and they've killed so many. They've displaced so many.
      They've destroyed so much. And they are the kurds that are terrorizing the regular kurds, the arabs, the christians--- it's terrible

    10. Pt 2 response to Ally

      "They are all Muslim people and a lot of them do support Erdogan because he is Islamic and actually gives them more rights than most of the other previous Turkish nationalist, secular leaders"

      He did indeed give them quite a bit and he had intended to give them more- but there was bigger plans a foot

      http://pennyforyourthoughts2.blogspot.ca/2016/01/the-ypg-pkk-connection-erdogan-ocalan.html

      "Before the collapse of the peace process, leaks about the state of the peace talks suggested that Öcalan appeared willing to support a proposal backed by Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) to transition to a presidential system in exchange for some semblance of democratic autonomy. The move would have helped resolve the issue peacefully by addressing key Kurdish demands (beyond those espoused by the PKK) for greater political and cultural autonomy. The AKP supported the premise of this potential compromise, although many details needed to be worked out before implementation"

      "You can ask me for more information if you want :)"

      Thank you, I will keep that in mind :)
      I wouldn't know where to begin?
      But, something I would appreciate would be if I could share your comment in a posting here?

      If there is something more that you think my readers need to know, please include it.

      If you can add more information that would help us understand the ongoing situation- please help us
      I would love it! :)
      Thanks so much

  5. You can share. You are right - many normal Kurds have had their lives ruined. They claim to be ecological but are destroying everything. Many of the pics of them that are circulating around on facebook are actually pics from the Syrian Army which includes many women as well. They are tossing them around, saying its their 'Lions of Rojava' Here is a video of 50K Kurds in Diyarbakir cheering for Mohammad and an Islamic State on 17th April. The event was organised by Hezbollah which is a Kurdish Islamist group in Turkey (not to be confused with the Lebanese Hezbollah). Ask me what you want. I am also happy to talk about events in Europe. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=THr2bDvWIOA
    Do you think that Syria, Iran and Turkey can defeat the Kurds or is it too late?

  6. Also, the land that they want is historically Assyrian. Southeastern Turkey today is 95% Kurdish. Diyarbakir, Gaziantep, Mardin are all Kurdish cities. My dad's sister is one of a few Turks that live in Diyarbakir which is the biggest Kurdish city. But 100 years ago, this area was Assyrian. In 1915, the Ottoman Turks had decided to slaughter them and killed more than 200,000. During this time, the demographics of the area started to change as the Kurds were coming over from Persia as mercenaries to help with the genocide. The Ottomans would give the Kurds Assyrian land if they helped slaughter them. The Kurds were allies of the Ottomans as they are also Sunnis and so there were a few that came to settle in s/e Turkey, northern Iraq and Northern Syria before 1915, but 90% of them only arrived after. So their ancestry in those areas only goes back 500 years when Assyrians, Arabs and others have been living there for thousands of years. In fact, many of the Kurds in Syria only arrived after 1925 after the failed Islamic Sheikh Said rebellion in Kemalist Turkey which the Kurds still commemorate today. You can read:
