The extent of the Islamic terror performed by the pseudo-Kurdish militias that are not controlled – as many erroneously believe – by either Talabani or Barzani is obvious in the extremely preoccupying case reported by the Dr. Sheth Jerjis, Chairman SOITM, the Netherlands-based Iraqi Turkmen Human Rights Research Foundation. It consists in a provocative case of arbitrary detention of an Iraqi Turkmen by the crypto-terrorist militias that will be playing for a while their theatrical parody of “Kurdish” forces. Then, the game will change….
I republish it from their website as a document testifying to the need for a dramatic U-turn that has to take place in Iraq before the ´Kurdish´ mask of Al Qaeda falls and dozens of millions of innocent people throughout the Middle East are sacrificed in the next Holocaust.

The Islamic Republic has recently increased its efforts towards eradicating the Turkish language within the geographical borders called Iran.
The regime that prevails in Iran has turned towards exterminating the precious Turkish works of art in this country by joining forces with the Persian chauvinists.
The Turks have settled in this geography which is called Iran for thousands of years and during the time of the Great Seljuk Empire. Many historical masterpieces in Iran are the heritage of the Turks of that time.
The Islamic Republic is nowadays trying to eradicate the Turkish language in the Iranian geography, half of its population is composed of the Turks, namely the Azerbaijani Turks, the Turkmens and the Kashghais etc. Read the rest of this entry »

President Abdullah Gül will visit the oil-rich northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Dec. 20, together with his Iraqi counterpart, Jalal Talabani, a trip that comes after the terrorist attack that claimed the lives of at least 55 people.
The announcement made by Talabani came Friday during his meeting with Iraqi Turkmen representatives in Kirkuk. Turkey’s Gül denounced the terrorist attack and expressed unity with Iraqis in a message to the Iraqi leader. Gül’s trip to Iraq has been long-expected by Iraqis who want to boost ties with its northern neighbor. In his first official trip to Iraq, Gül will visit Baghdad and will have talks with prominent Iraqi politicians. The exact date of Gül’s visit to Iraq will become clear after his doctor has revealed the nature of an ear problem he has been suffering from.

Ankara did not welcome the statement of Iraqi President Jalal Talabani that he and Turkish President Abdullah Gul would travel to Kirkuk, Milliyet daily reported citing presidential office sources.
Talabani’s declaration was interpreted as efforts by the Iraqi party to include Kirkuk in Gul’s planned Baghdad visit, the report said.
According to reports on Friday, Talabani was reported as saying he and Gul were planning to visit Kirkuk together on Dec.20.
Turkish Presidential sources had earlier confirmed that a visit to Iraq was on the agenda, adding there was no clear date. However sources did not mention a possible visit to Kirkuk during Gul’s planned trip.
The announced visit may be postponed if Turkish President Abdullah Gul, who currently has an ear infection, is not cleared by doctors to fly, the newspaper also said. Read the rest of this entry »

Talabani, himself a Kurd, reiterated his invitation to the Turkish president during their meeting in New York on the sidelines of a session of the U.N. General Assembly in September.
Turkey has intensified its direct contacts with both Iraqi central government and the regional Kurdish administration in northern Iraq to discuss the possible measures that can be taken in the fight against the terror organization PKK.
Turkey, who has also stepped up its campaign to crackdown on the PKK, has long blamed the Kurdish administration in northern Iraq for supporting the PKK and refused to hold contacts.

A suicide bomber killed at least 45 people and wounded 93 on Thursday in an explosion just north of Iraq’s ethnically mixed city of Kirkuk, shattering the calm during a major Muslim holiday, AFP reported police as saying.
The bomber detonated explosives inside a Kurdish restaurant about 10 km (6 miles) north of Kirkuk, said Major General Jamal Tahir, police chief of Kirkuk.
Tahir said the restaurant was packed during lunch hour. Many Iraqis are on holiday during Eid al-Adha, a four-day religious holiday, and would be more likely to visit restaurants.
Iraqi and American security forces sealed off the area following the bombing, a Reuters reporter said.
Violence has dropped sharply in Iraq over the past year, but militants still stage attacks on a routine basis. Thursday’s bomb attack was the deadliest in months. Read the rest of this entry »
In a previous article entitled “Devastating Refutation of the UK-promoted Fallacy about ´Kurdish´ Historical Presence in Kerkuk” (http://www.buzzle.com/articles/devastating-refutation-of-the-uk-promoted-fallacy-about-kurdish-historical-presence-in-kerkuk.html), I underscored the historical reality that the assumption that Kerkuk has been a historically ´Kurdish” area, and that there has been a significant “Kurdish” presence there, is a colonial fallacy of criminal dimensions.
In fact, Kerkuk belongs to the Turkmen, and this is what all the Europeans and the English said by themselves, when they crossed the Ottoman Empire during the last two centuries of its existence.
I specified that the fallacy about “Kurdish Kerkuk” is now being diffused only to misinform Western audiences and readerships, and thus promote a consensus and a public support for a ´Kurdish” state in the area of Northern Iraq that will – illegally, criminally and ominously – control the Oil-rich territory of Kerkuk only to further finance wars and discords, conflicts and calamities throughout the region, according to the messianic and eschatological plans of the Apostate Freemasonic Lodge.
