By Dr Jan Best de Vries:
Some thousand (1000!) Peshmergas from Bashur have meanwhile died in Northern Iraq, but how many boys of the YPG and girls of the YPJ in Rojava have been slaughtered by the Sunnites of IS who share their superior belief of beheading with the Saudis who have financed them and al-Nusra from the very start? Only after IS-caliph al-Baghdadi had uttered phrases in which he declared that all royal houses should be destroyed, the annoyed Saudi’s permitted themselves to change their policy and to supply, at the request of the Americans, jets to bomb their former allies, caliphate IS and Idlib’s emirate al-Nusra. The aim of the Saudis had been the fall of the Shiite ophthalmist Assad, but apparently not of their own Sunnite royal house….
So when their king died, most Western powers, all fond of Human Rights, had themselves represented at his funeral in the Islamic Arab homeland which invented beheadings and is, like its plagiarist IS, still busy executing these on a large scale. On Dutch TV the pictures of beheadings in Syria and Iraq are obliterated, because the view of these would disturb watching children! No TV manager asks her/himself how many Kurdish little children had to stand by when their parents were beheaded….
In the Dutch parliament questions will be put why His Majesty Willem Alexander himself had to attend the funeral of a cruel Saudi king and not just his Minister of Foreign Affairs Bert Koenders? And Prime Minister Mark Rutte will probably answer in guarded terms that high economic interests are at stake…. No human rights for the beheaded female victims in Kobane. That’s the reason why only anonymous Dutchmen are financing Kalashnikovs for the women of the YPJ, get a thank letter of their commander, hang the YPJ flag on their cupboards, visit their courageous soldiers on the fronts, laugh and mourn with girls just too young to die…. After the fall of Mosul the times are going to change for Rojava and Bashur!
