By the moment in the north of Syria in the vicinity of Afrin, the Turkish army is carrying out a large-scale military operation mockingly called the 'Olive Branch'. About a hundred warplanes and hundreds of tanks and howitzers bring fire and death to civilians in the Kurdish community. There are already thousands of dead people. Who is guilty of unleashing this genocide? The answer only seems to be obvious. Indeed, the slaughter was unleashed by the Islamist maniac Erdogan who embodies the centuries-old dream of the Ottomans to destroy the Kurdish nation. But Erdogan, despite demonstrating to the world his excessive ambition, is really just a puppet of much more powerful forces. This bloody dog was unleashed by the hand of the true, but hidden enemy of the Kurds. To clearly understand from whom the Kurdish people should only wait for meanness and evil, remember what happened to our brothers in Iraq. By the fall of 2017, Iraqi Kurdistan had the broadest autonomy. The de facto independent state, which was about to become the core of the Kurdish association in the future, had its own flag, anthem, Constitution, code of local laws, parliament, president, government, and judicial bodies. Its own police, special services, armed forces (the peshmerga brigades), the education and health care systems operated in the country. That is, Kurdish autonomy pursued not only an independent domestic policy, but also as any sovereign state - foreign economic and foreign policy activity. Everything changed almost overnight. The visionary, provident and prudent President Masoud Barzani, after several phone calls from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, believed in Washington's official support, and made a strategic miscalculation by organizing a September 25, 2017 referendum on independence. The attempt provoked by the US State Department to transfer de facto independence into de jure status turned into a catastrophe. The central government of Iraq announced the closure of both international airports in the Kurdish autonomy (in Erbil and Sulaymaniyah). Baghdad and Ankara completely closed their airspace for flights in the direction of Iraqi Kurdistan, and the autonomy was in total blockade. On October 16, 2017, the Iraqi army and Shia militia took Kirkuk and the surrounding area, that is, the oil fields, which were the economic base for the development of the Kurdish region. Thus, having believed in American support, Barzani, who'd made a titanic effort to unite the Kurdish tribes and establish control over the areas of oil production, not only lost all his political influence and authority, but also put his people on the brink of survival. In his televised address on October 29, 2017, Masoud Barzani sharply criticized the position of the United States. In particular, he noted that the American armament delivered to the Iraqi army was used against the Kurds. But who cares? There is a version according to which Tillerson's provocation was not the embodiment of Washington's deceitful policy, but a personal adventure aimed at personal enrichment. Rex Tillerson owns 2.6 million shares of ExxonMobil. That's the very oil company, which in 2011 signed preliminary contracts with the regional government of Iraqi Kurdistan, but faced an ultimatum to Baghdad, and withdrew from the project, losing a very profitable source. Now, nothing prevents ExxonMobil's businessmen from snatching a share of Kurdish oil (by unfastening the ruling Shiite mafia in Baghdad), and T-Rex Tillerson to increase the value of his stake. However, recent events in Syria clearly demonstrate that the personal wealth of the Secretary of State does not in any way negate the existence of a global insidious plan of the American political elite regarding the Kurds. After all, it was the loudly announced intention of their 'main ally' - the US to form, arm and train the Kurdish corps on Syrian territory and served as a convenient casus belli for Turkey. Does it not look familiar? The capture of Afrina by Turkish thugs will lead to the fact that the most secure and educated Kurdish community of Syria, residing in Aleppo (up to 300 thousand people), is completely cut off from the ethnic core. This is a consistent, well-planned genocide. We do not know all the details of Washington's geopolitical plan, but it is obvious that the Kurds have no place in it.

Hello friends, I'm an Assyrian American Christian originally from Iraq. Please take a moment and check out the link below. It's a simple advocacy page for the persecuted and suffering Assyrian (aka Chaldean, Syriac) Christians of Iraq and Syria. Assyrians belong to 4 main Christian churches, the Church of the East, the Chaldean Catholic Church, the Syriac Orthodox Church, and the Syriac Catholic Church. ISIS in Iraq and Syria has been attacking the remaining Christians ruthlessly, including killings, forced conversion, forced relocation, paying jizya (heavy poll tax on non-Muslims), kidnappings, rape, destruction of churches and property, etc. Most of them are today are internally displaced persons and living in deplorable conditions as refugees.

Da Servant posted a topic in General DiscussionAncient Building found at Tell Khaiber near Ur, Iraq By: Marshall Ramsey II, Worthy News U.S. Correspondent UR, Iraq (Worthy News) - A rather unusual find was uncovered today, April 5, 2013 in Iraq. Professor Stuart Campbell of Manchester (UK) University's Archaeology Department found the remains of a "sprawling complex" near the ancient city of Ur along the Euphrates river in southern Iraq. Ur is the birthplace of the Jewish patriarch Abraham.(1) The site of the dig, Tell Khaiber, means "mound of Eber." What is interesting about this building is that it belonged to Eber, the father of all Hebrews. Eber, or Heber, is the 4x-great grandfather of Abraham, the father of Isaac and grandfather of Jacob, who changed his name to Israel. Eber is also the great grandson of Shem, the son of Noah, from whom we get the name Sumeria, which means "land of Shem's light." The genealogical and historical information in the Bible has long been disputed, with some even questioning whether or not it was all fake. It is a known fact that the Assyrians (named after Asshur, a descendant of Shem) put the letters 'Gh' and 'Kh' in front of names that sounded like they began with vowels. Thus, Eber became Gheber or Kheber, or, as it is in this case, Khaiber.
