On The Frontline of Terror in Iraqi Kurdistan

Faith GoldyRebel Host Faith Goldy
 

I am standing at the very frontline of Peshmerga controlled Iraqi Kurdistan, bordering a territory controlled by the Shia militant group Hashd al-Shaabi, who receive their marching orders from both Baghdad and Tehran. 

To my one side is the Christian town of Batnaya, which has seen over 85 percent of its homes, businesses and churches torched and detonated by Islamic State terrorists over the several years they controlled the town before Peshmerga forces won its liberation.

The hope is that one day Christians can return to the town now in Kurdish control, a people and government which list pluralism among their core principles.

However, my other side is yet another Christian town which is now under Iraqi-Iranian control. Christians there, I'm told, have fled as Muslim residents and militants now occupy the town.

Peshmerga forces tell me Hashd al-Shaabi forces hardly helped in the fight against ISIS, their common enemy, but waltzed in after the fact and began seizing Christian land.

Iraq's fight against Islamism did not end with Al Qaeda but bore a new beast in the Islamic State. And so, one question remains: When Peshmerga and coalition forces push ISIS back, will a new terror group-- perhaps this time with an Iranian Shia flare-- rise to fill the void?

Janice Kay ; Yes, and may I add he is guite skilled in the art of Taqiyyah which is quite obvious to all but the uninitiated.

Terry MacLeod, Ayan Ray is practicing Jihad of the Pen, trying to make Muslims look good while making Christians look bad. It’s one of several kinds of Jihad. There are others: Jihad of the Womb, Jihad of the Mouth, and Jihad of the Sword. Jihad of the Sword can’t be engaged in here, but the others can.

For the best video I’ve seen on Islam, watch retired math and physics professor, Dr Bill Warner outline the rapid expansion of Islam from Arabia, to Syria, then across north Africa into Spain within a few years of Mohammed’s death. It explains how Islam works.

Ya, Ayan doesn’t give shit about any Christians (or whites) he’s too busy pounding his bruised coconut into the pavement. Mohamed was a pedophile, Piss be upon him.

Ayan Ray the terrorists attacking the Muslims are Muslims. Did you not get that part? And Europe has been subjugated , they cover for immigrant crime.

@Allan Ray….Ok….so let’s go back to the origin of this feud….sort of like Kevin Costner’s miniseries on the Hatfields and the McCoys….gererations suffering needlessly over something that was done and over.

Mohammed raided a caravan….it was a Jewish caravan….he killed all of the males in that caravan in front of the women….after killing her husband and all of her male relatives he rapes a Jewish woman….then he says…“make me a sandwich bitch”….she poisons him….his nephew Ali has been taking care of business while Mohammed has been busy fucking his harem for some time before any of this so the “shia of Ali” assume that Mohammed would have wanted a continuity like this….it was even them who founded the mosque where his body is entombed…but a rival faction (the sunna) disagrees and the body count is now in the hundreds of millions….

Not only that….both sides feel it is OK to kill those who have not bought into this bullshit.

Allan Ray…they have been doing this for centuries.

The cure is simple….provide a safe space for all “apostates” who just don’t want to go along with this any more and if any overbearing asshole invokes the death penalty for apostacy…..kill that asshole with EXTREME prejudice…

Until we do that…there will be no peace in the world.

“You say this is not happening”

Where did I say that?

I simply pointed out that Muslims are victims of terrorism to a far greater extent than non-Muslims. Here’s the truth.

“In cases where the religious affiliation of terrorism casualties could be determined, Muslims suffered between 82 and 97% of terrorism-related fatalities over the past five years.”

http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-30883058

Is pointing out that Muslims are victims of terrorism to a far greater extent than non-Muslims and in EU, White people are responsible for the vast majority of terrorist incidents not good for generating web traffic and selling books?

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt, reposting comments that I already refuted won’t help advance your argument.

“Ayan Ray, your link is laughable. Wiki is a source used by amateurs, or lazy apologists. You need to provide source material if you want to make such claims.”

I can’t help you if you don’t know how to use a website like Wikipedia. The original source materials from Europol are directly quoted and linked just under the graph.

Your link does not contradict my statement (“In EU, White people are responsible for the vast majority of terrorist incidents.”) so why did you refer to it?

“Muslims killing muslims who they think are the wrong kind of muslim is not a product of Christianity…”

My point is that Ezra Levant and the like are wrong when they claim terrorists are after non-Muslims. Muslims are victims of terrorism to a far greater extent than non-Muslims. Here’s the truth.

“In cases where the religious affiliation of terrorism casualties could be determined, Muslims suffered between 82 and 97% of terrorism-related fatalities over the past five years.”

“Between 2004 and 2013 about half of all terrorist attacks, and 60% of fatalities due to terrorist attacks, took place in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan – all of which have a mostly Muslim population.”

“Most terrorist attacks are rooted in geopolitics. Religion is certainly a part of them, but it is not the only part.”

If you would like more accurate information to get educated, I suggest you search the Global Terrorism Database which has been tracking terrorist attacks for approx. 45 years. You will be enlightened!

Muslims killing muslims who they think are the wrong kind of muslim is not a product of Christianity, you can lay the blame at the feet of Mohammedans. Islamic texts prescribe this. It is barbaric.

Ayan Ray said in part, “And how about helping Christian victims of terrorist incidents carried out by White Christians?
In EU, White people are responsible for the vast majority of terrorist incidents.”

You need to provide source material if you want to make such claims.

How many “White Christians” scream “I love you Jesus, or, Jesus this is for you” before attacking anyone?

Ayan Ray, if you don’t think muslims have been helped, you must have just crawled out of a cave.

How about helping Muslims too?

I think I heard it on Alex Jones, “If they are no danger to us (the migrants) then why are we dropping bombs on them?” Pretty rational question. Drop bombs on them, piss them off, then let them in by the millions. Very Soros idea. BTW Anonymous, don’t worry i’m working on getting my east European passport from where my parents were born. I won’t let the door hit me in the ass on the way out. Enjoy your diversity, just make sure you’re not a hypocrite. JT is all for diversity. And of course he also gets to play the “Que cette Chambre reconnaisse que les Québécoises et les Québécois forment une nation au sein d’un Canada uni.” card, so he’s as “distinct” as any 1st nations.

There is no formal or implied alliance with Kurdish free state forces in Iraq – the Kurds have been asking Canada for alliance/assistance 2 years:

" The government says no decision has been made on increasing Canada’s contacts with the Kurds, but analysts are urging caution given their stated desire for independence. Canada has had a trade office in the capital of Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, Erbil, since 2013, but the Kurds’ top diplomat says his government wants to see it upgraded to a consulate general.

“We would very much like to upgrade that into a full-fledged consul general so that it will be able to have political consultations, economic co-operation, cultural aspects,” Falah Mustafa, head of the Kurdistan Regional Government’s foreign relations office, said during a recent interview in Erbil.

I have never ever once made political arguments. All I have ever done was call out bigotry and ignorance. I know exactly what the white conservative policy of immigration is. The most extreme example of it is not too many people with black, brown, or olive coloured skin and they can’t make more then minimum wage so that ensure they can never live in our “white, judeo christian” neighbourhoods. Rebel Media is a fucking hate group.

There is no exit plan for the western forces who are not only mentoring the fighters, but in fact leading the missions on one side of the battle.

When they leave the Kurds and Christians will become the oppressed again.

It all boils down to this:

“Islam is evil and will only allow islam to thrive where they have control. It is convert or die.”
