Pro War "Left" and Usrael's Kurds in Syria

And yes there is a pro war "left" out there.. they are the writers who gloss over the FACT that Syria's being chopped up and push the idea that north eastern Syria belongs to some group of alleged 'egalitarian' democratic persons... Who stand for nothing but peace, love and understanding making all this death and destruction 'a good thing'.  They are the sites/authors that advance the cause of "greater Kurdistan" or write about Rojova as if it exists, while never asking if it actually does? Or should? Or, what was the cost for it's creation? Who really desired this creation? Was it the myriad of always in conflict 'kurds' that wanted a state? Was it other parties that desired this state be created? Championing a 'cause' to give cover to an agenda.  That's the pro war left. 

Years back it was written here, since it's plainly observable,  that the narrative being used to create Greater Kurdistan is nearly the  EXACT narrative that was authored to create Israel.

Dissident Voice, Just the relevant parts:

Since there is NO betrayal of the Usrael Kurds in Syria. None. That rubbish is excluded.That's a completely bogus narrative. Anyone pushing this fabrication is merely pushing another flavour of  imperialist propaganda. Fact is the US is occupying, arming and aiding the Usrael Kurds as they rebuild the stolen territory with Syria's stolen resources. Despite the obvious problems with the "dissident voice" piece there is still some good information to be gleaned from it. That information is featured below.

"Why would the U.S. risk losing its geo-strategic alliance with Turkey? To put it simply, it’s ‘special relationship’ with Israel took greater precedent. Any way you slice it, Washington’s foray into the region has been as much about Zionism as imperialism and its backing of the Kurds is no exception. Despite the blowback, the invasion of Iraq and destruction of Libya took two enormous sources of support for the Palestinian resistance off the chessboard. It may have strengthened Iran in the process, but that is all the more reason for the U.S. to sell a regime change attempt in Tehran in the future.
One of the main reasons for the Kurds joining the SDF so willingly has the same explanation as to why Washington was prepared to put its relationship with Ankara in jeopardy by supporting them: Israel. The cozy relationship between the Zionist state and the various Kurdish groups centered at the intersection of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria goes back as far as the 1960s, as Jerusalem has consistently used them to undermine its enemies.
It is not by chance that their respective interests overlap to a near tee, between the founding of a Kurdish protectorate and the Zionist plan for a ‘Greater Israel’ in the Middle East which includes a balkanization of Syria. Mossad has openly provided the Kurds with training and they have learned much in the ways of the ethnic cleansing of Arabs from the Jewish state in order to carve out a Syrian Kurdistan."
 Indeed. And that's been covered here repeatedly. The ethnic cleansing of Syrians carried out by Usrael's Kurds...

"The YPG’s makeover as the SDF was done at the behest of the U.S. but this did nothing to diminish the objections of Ankara (or many ‘leftists’ from supporting them), who insisted the YPG was already an extension and rebranding of the PKK, a group Washington itself designates as a terrorist 
The ties between the YPG and the PKK are undeniable, as both groups follow jailed leader Abdullah Ă–calan’s teachings which merge Kurdish nationalism with the theories of ‘democratic confederalism’ from the influential Jewish-American anarchist philosopher, Murray Bookchin"
And yet so many deny the obvious, in plain sight, ties between the two groups. Effectively they are the same. This is or should be widely known by now. Yet, it isn't. Another important fact that's been obfuscated by the pro war left. 

"Not coincidentally, the Western anarchist icon (Bookchin) was also an avowed Zionist who often defended Israel’s war crimes and genocide of Palestinians while demonizing its Arab state opponents as the aggressors, including Syria. Scratch an anarchist and a neo-conservative will bleed, every time."
Bookchin has been mentioned here previously. Not a shocker that he was an Israel firster.

"Many on the pseudo-left who have pledged solidarity with the Kurds have attempted to base their reasoning on a historically inaccurate analogy comparing the Syrian conflict with the Spanish Civil War of the 1930s. You would think ISIS would be the obvious first choice for the fascists in the Syrian war, but journalist Robert Mackey of popular “progressive” news site The Intercept even tried to cast the Syrian government as Francisco Franco’s Nationalists in an article comparing the 1937 bombing of Guernica by the Condor Legion to the 2018 chemical attack in Douma which remains in dispute regarding its perpetrator"


  1. Hallelujah. Thank you, Penny.
    It's so strange how anarchists, supposedly against unjust hierarchies, always join in with terror campaigns against states opposed to every imperial superpower since the 19th century (along with Trotskyites). Many of them also tended to come from aristocratic or middle-class backgrounds. You don't see professors in Hamburg or Minneapolis enjoying the "wonders" of the wars in Syria and elsewhere.

    1. You're welcome Martin- Glad to have presented the material.
      And glad you read it and enjoyed it as well

      Also, wondered where you'd gotten to- so it's good to know your still around
