Kobani: Letter to US Elected Representatives
Written on October 6, 2014 by Editor in ISIS, Kobane, Kurd news, Kurdistan, Rojava, USA
By Dr Amir Sharifi:Kobane
As a concerned American, I am writing to you to urge you to stand with the people and defenders of Kobani in the Kurdish region of Syria in the face of the ISIS brutal battle for the capture and control of the city. As you know the U. S. action against ISIS, could change the course of history of the region by preventing ISIS from ravaging and vanquishing the ancient Middle Eastern civilizations. We all recall how the ISIS savagely attacked innocent civilians including Christians in Mosul and Yazidis in Shingal, creating an unprecedented tragedy in Iraq. The world community cannot afford to wait any longer while the ISIS terrorists are on their way to obliterate the entire livelihood of the people of different faiths and ethnicities in the Middle East and the rest of the world. The city of Kobane has been surrounded for almost two week; the latest reports indicate that the city is under heavy bombardment and parts of the city may have fallen. If democratic nations fail to provide immediate military support to Kurdish fighters, Kobane will suffer the same tragic fate as Shingal.
Dear senator, Kurds as advocates for democracy are paying a high price for their fight against the vicious forces of the Islamic State. As the champion of democracy and humanity, our government has a moral responsibility to help the besieged Kurds who are desperate for our help. Their fight against ISIS is an integral part of the global war against terror and hence deserves our. Our government should also denounce and stop the complicity of governments such as Turkey whose support for the ISIS has contributed to the spread of terrorism and undermined the effectiveness of the coalition battle against ISIS aggression. The capture of Kobani will not solve the Kurdish issue in Turkey, but will only enable the ISIS to pose a greater threat to both the peoples of the region and American interests in the Middle East.
For these reasons, I strongly urge you to support the defenders of Kobani before another massacre takes place. Without such a support, there will undoubtedly be another humanitarian catastrophe in Kobane.
Dr.Amir Sharifi, President of the Kurdish American Education Society

BAGHDAD / Nina /--A Kurdish delegation headed by most of the parliamentary blocs in the Parliament of Kurdistan region up today to the outskirts of the Syrian Kobanî city to look closely at the deterioration of the situation which is going on since weeks ago in the city because of attacks which carried out by Daash.
A familiar source said in a press statement that Turkish security power prevented the delegation from going into side the city for reason of security
The ISIS Has Been Forced To Fall Back Near Kobani, You Won’t Believe Who Is Standing In Their Way
The ISIS is now clearly a number one terror threat in size. Their barbaric acts have become all too apparent, and shockingly, they seem to continue their march into civilian regions, slaughtering men, women, and children with complete disregard to human life. Though America and Australia have begun aerial attacks, the ISIS fighters seemed to be gaining ground near Kobani, a relatively isolated enclave in Kurdistan. However, against all odds, a relatively puny force has positioned itself between the town and the ISIS fighters, and has surprisingly forced the terror organization to halt its march.
Earlier this week, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said the isolated Kurdish enclave of Kobani was “about to fall” to a massive, sustained assault from ISIS, reported RT. A couple of days later, Rooz Bahjat, a Kurdish intelligence officer stationed in Kobani, said the city would fall within “the next 24 hours,” reported The Atlantic.
By today, the world expected to hear that ISIS has begun exterminating the local population with extreme prejudice. But, astonishingly, that hasn’t happened. Asreported by The Daily Star, the ISIS forces have been stopped dead in their tracks and many “regiments” have been forced to fall back from their conquered posts.
Under the protection of air strikes orchestrated by America and its coalition forces, the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) have managed to push ISIS fighters outside several key areas.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitoring group, confirmed that ISIS fighters had withdrawn overnight from several areas, and were no longer inside the western part of Kobani. But that’s not all — Mustafa Ebdi, a Kurdish journalist and activist from Kobani, wrote on his Facebook page that the streets of one southeastern neighborhood were “full of the bodies” of ISIS fighters.
How has the poorly armed country managed to hold back the world’s largest terrorist network? Kobani has been under attack by 9,000 ISIS jihadists, armed with tanks and heavy artillery for nearly a month. They were being feebly challenged by just 2,000 Kurdish fighters with the YPG, the armed wing of the Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK), without access to any heavy weaponry and short on ammunition.
Though Ill-Equipped And Poorly Trained, The Kurdish Women Have Proven That During A Battle It Is The Motivation That Matters
However, the Kurds have something that no ISIS regiment will ever have. The Kurd ranks have been steadily filled by women fighters. A very large percentage of the YPG fighters who have been so good at killing ISIS jihadists are women, reported Al Monitor.
Many women have been emboldened by the thought that the ISIS militants strongly believe they won’t go to paradise if they are killed by a woman. Some even believe that women fighters make the ISIS nervous and hysterical.
Whatever may be the justification, the facts remain that the Kurdish enclave of Kobani is yet to fall into the hands of the ISIS, and the women fighters have a lot to do with this success.
I can't believe this muppet head was the same person trying to provoke us into war with Syria months ago, by invoking images of women and children dying.... and now says...in the face of thousands dying and/or tortured to death... "yeah, its horrible to watch, but you have to step back and understand the strategic targets"... . omg.... Which one is it Mr. Potato Head?!?! Which time were you lying???...Cause both things can't be true....
Some of us are keeping track you duplicitous jerk and if you lose Kobani, we'll know something is beyond foul, and you have stepped through the doorway into evil.... . .
This is 1 hour ago..... Video shows the shooting action, picture below confirms he is one of the ISIS commanders... .
