The flare of Kurdish struggle in Iran will
not be stubbed out with a few Executions!
By Baqi Barzani, a longtime contributing writer for ekurd.net
Conscious of its days numbering, the terrorist
regime of Iran shamelessly steps up its
marginalization, containment and execution of
peaceable, democratic voices of Kurdish political
activists to portray its muscles. In a futile effort
to hamper the duplication of street protest rallies
and bloody anti-regime demonstrations, the
shuddering terrorist regime has been relentlessly
and arbitrarily targeting the innocent Kurdish
civilians in Eastern Kurdistan [Iranian Kurdistan]
in order to retaliate. This is not the first time
that Tehran is resorting to such excessive, barbaric
approaches toward the Kurds. Many of the crimes
committed or being committed against the Kurds have
not been documented and accounted for. What is being
divulged before the world eyes is unrivaled to what
has actually transpired.
Kurdistan has morphed in to a massive burial ground,
hanging filed and firing ranch for the opponents of
Islamic regime. Even prior to the takeover of regime
in the 1979 revolution, the 10-million Kurds were
never treated as equal citizens in Iran, despite
playing vital role in liberation efforts, upheavals
and toppling undemocratic regimes. Kurds have
consistently been regarded as the enemies of every
Iranian regime due to their persistent pleas for
broader ethnic, linguistic and national rights.
The international community continues to wordlessly
observe the perpetration of such heinous tragedies.
Such actions reveal the regime’s ineffectiveness and
weakness to inflict order, stability and rule of
law. The US, EU and UN have remained unresponsive.
When Rumsfeld and alike were squeezing Saddam’s hand
in Baghdad, not much attention was paid to the
plight and agony of the Kurds back then. It was such
reservation signals that emboldened the then-
dictator to continue carrying out his mass murders
that resulted in the slaying of hundreds of
thousands of ordinary masses. Even though regretted
it did not help salvage human lives. If it were not
for Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, not much
would have been acted upon or articulated about the
current regime’s wicked intents of trying to
annihilate Kurdish race, as well.
Struggle against Mullas war criminals and human
rights abusers will not cease with a few hangings.
Kurdish peace-seeking masses will continue their
resistance against religious fascism in Iran. The
banner of Kurdistan will intrepidly be kept aloft to
the very end.
We call upon all individuals, organizations and
governments who claim to espouse liberty and
democracy and who are partisans of human rights to
lend their support for a regime change in Iran and
rush to the defense of unprotected Kurds.
Baqi Barzani is a
Kurdish citizen of Sought Kurdistan [Iraq]. He
advocates the notion of " establishing an
independent Kurdish state". He contributes to
various Kurdish media outlets, especially ekurd.net.
