De­cayed Minds

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Salam Ab­dul­lah

An Iraqi MP from State of Law said some­thing bit­ter about Pesh­merge and Kur­dis­tan which one can­not de­cide whether it is mad­ness, stu­pid­ity or an ex­am­ple of the ut­most chau­vin­ism.

Let’s see what Aliyah Naseef, a Mem­ber of the Iraqi Par­lia­ment said: she con­sid­ers the lib­er­a­tion of Shin­gal by Pesh­merge as an act of oc­cu­pa­tion of Iraqi soil. Yes, oc­cu­pa­tion. But when Shin­gal was at­tacked and oc­cu­pied by the ter­ror­ists and thou­sands of peo­ple were killed, ab­ducted and cap­tured as sex slaves, she and her alike ex­pressed their silent hap­pi­ness. They did not even con- demn it.

She and those with the same rot­ten men­tal­ity have been blinded by ha­tred, racism and chau­vin­ism. They refuse to see and ac­knowl­edge that those who’ve been ex­ter­mi­nated and killed en masse were Kurds and the soil from which they had been driven away is ac­tu­ally Kur­dish soil.

By which stan­dard can we mea­sure this in­jus­tice? When you lib­er­ate your own land from the black-flagged, most bru­tal ter­ror­ists in the his­tory and some peo­ple ac­cuse you of oc­cu­pa­tion in­stead of of­fer­ing con­grat­u­la­tions. Is there any­one who can oc­cupy his own land? This warped view is the prod­uct of the twisted minds of those who can­not see the truth as it is. They twist his­tory and re­al­ity.

This is the at­ti­tude of an MP whose party has the majority in the Iraqi Par­lia­ment. So, what can we ex­pect from such a Par­lia­ment?

Ear­lier, another lady in the same bloc, Hanan Fat­lawy, who doesn’t hide her ha­tred to­wards the Kur­dish peo­ple and their ex­pe­ri­ence con­fessed that when she was in charge of the im­ple­men­ta­tion of Ar­ti­cle 140 of Iraqi Con­sti­tu­tion re­gard­ing the set­tle­ment of the is­sue of the dis­puted ar­eas and Kirkuk, she never let the process progress in the course of four years, and has al­ways ham­pered it and was against any peace­ful res­o­lu­tion of the is­sues.

So, for us the Kurds peo­ple, stay­ing within Iraq is just like ham­mer­ing the iron while it is cold. The chau­vin­is­tic Arabs nei­ther be­lieve in fed­er­al­ism, the right to self-de­ter­mi­na­tion nor any kind of agree­ment. They want a strong cen­tral­ized state so that they can rule supreme. Oth­er­wise who would dare to say what the lady has said that Kurds are oc­cu­py­ing Iraqi soil? Pon­der such a de­cayed mind!
