I wanted to write a quick message of support in favour of the proposed protest outside the Iranian embassy on Saturday. I also wanted to say that I would like to attend and would you mind so very much if I brought along my own petition which is also to do with the Iranian Regime. Please visit my website. I do not mean to cause offense to your campaign, I would be more than happy to sign any petition etc.

Many thanks, Jessica

The Kurds actively and willingly assisted the GENOCIDE of the 300,000+ Iraqi's butchered since Blair and Bush's invasion of Iraq. As such, the Kurds are no different from the various ethnic tribes of Europe that Hitler employed in his wars of conquest and genocide.

The current Kurdish actions against Iran, co-ordinated by British Intelligence, are merely part of the propoganda lead-up to Blair's war against Iran, a war that will begin with a massive bombing campaign, almost certainly nuclear, that will kill millions.

The Kurds have lost any and all claim to victimhood with their choice of political allies. Of course, once Blair has fully used them to achieve his next objective, the Kurds will be left to their well deserved fate, friendless across the planet. Anyone who makes a deal with the Devil should understand that the deal only ever benefits one party, namely the Devil.


Do you mean ?

"The Kurds have lost any and all claim to victimhood with their choice of political allies"

Do you mean in the same way the Allies defeated Hitler by siding with that mass murderer Joseph Stalin ?

think it through

Where do you get the 300,000 figure from ????????

Where do you get the 300,000 dead figure from???? According to the Iraq body count website the figure for the number of Iraqi dead since the war started is no more than 26559, most of whom have been killed by terrorist insurgents not allied troops.

And what about Saddam Husseins' genocide? It is on record that he slaughtered 300,000 Iraqi during his 24 years in power most of whom were found in mass graves.

Iran is not only a danger for its own people (the Iranian-kurds) but also a danger for its neighbours and a promoter of terrorism. Iran has been funding terrorists and allowing them to base headquarter on its soils but since the clerics took power.
The only possible solution seems to invade Iran before the make an atomic bomb and give it to Bin-Laden so that he can detonate it in London.

Invade Iran

However many Iraqi Kurds supported the US-British occupation, who are you to declare that an entire people have forfeited their human rights?

You seem to be saying that it's OK for the Iranian government to kill and torture Kurds in Iran, because people who happen to share their ethnicity supported the war in Iraq.

It's the same logic that the Nazis used to justify the holocaust on the basis that "The Jews killed Christ". It's the same logic that British racists use to justify attacks on Muslims on the basis that "The Muslims carried out the London bombings".

There is no single monolithic entity called "The Kurds", any more than there is a single monolithic group called "The Jews", "The Muslims", "The Iraqis", "The Palestinians", "The Hutus", "The Tutsis", "The British" or "The Londoners". Like every community in the world, the Kurdish people are an enormously diverse group, some of whom supported the war in Iraq, and some of whom didn't. A fair few aren't interested in politics at all.

There will never be peace until we can get away from the idea that it's OK to attack random members of a particular community simply because other members of that community have done something we disagree with.

Yes, and WHY did the Kurds support the invasion of Iraq? Might it have had something to do with the Iraqi army trying to exterminate them?
