Future of Worry and Present of Threats

 

Temple Mount, just those two words bring up thoughts of rioting youth and terrorism murdering Israeli police and citizens. Ask anyone and they will tell you that the Israeli Arab conflict is one of the most difficult political problems on the planet. That thinking can and will never solve this conflict. There exists absolutely no political solution to this problem. The reason is this is not a political problem. More on this as we get further into the article.

 

Iran, this is also a political threat according to President Trump and most of the advisors and experts. Iran is attempting to take over much of the Middle East with control already stretching from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. They have all but taken over the southern half of Iraq, all of Lebanon and are working to take over much of Syria and appear to be succeeding with Russian assistance and the use of Lebanese Hezballah which for all intents and purposes is the Army of Lebanon plus what remains of the Syrian Army that remains loyal to Bashir al-Assad. Iran has been working towards a nuclear weapon and nobody can be absolutely assured that they are keeping to the supposed agreement made with President Obama. Most do not even know what the agreement between the nations was as each copy of the terms appears to be different. There are the Russian, European, and United States versions and nobody knows for sure what the Iranian agreement states. Iran has made remarkable progress on their missile technology and has been known to be working with North Korea which has to trouble everyone. The world will be seeking a political solution to this set of threats as well. This also is not a political problem.

 

North Korea and Kim Jong-un is probably the most pressing problem currently as he is about to go beyond the cusp and actually have a solid fueled ICBM capable of striking anywhere on the planet. Such a system is probably less than six months away and by that time he will most definitely have a nuclear EMP device (electro-magnetic pulse) capable of being placed atop just such a missile and taking out an electrical grid the size of North America or Europe. Further, he will likely have at least a nuclear device capable of decimating a city if not a thermonuclear device capable of destroying an entire metropolitan area. Some political solution is also being sought to this threat. This also is not a political problem.

 

China has been expanding her control in the South China Sea and threatening to take over disputed islands claimed by Japan and the Philippines. China has also refused to take any stand towards placing some control on Kim Jong-un. Many believe that this is due to China hoping that the trouble being sewn by North Korea will take the pressure and concentration of President Trump off the moves being exercised by China. This is probably not a wise move by China as President Trump is perfectly capable of addressing more than one problem at a time just as he is capable of causing more than one problem at a time. China, fortunately, is largely a political problem but also shares some of the properties of these other situations.

 

So, what is this magical and mysterious central concept that is not political at the center of these problems? In a single word, it is supremacy. For Iran and the Arabs, it is religious supremacy. For Kim Jong-un it is his view of himself as more than just a man but more of an idealized and worshiped leader who has abilities far above his enemies and other mere mortal beings. For China, it is the fact that China has been a world hegemon off and on for centuries and has always considered themselves superior to other nations and add in the Communist doctrines which tell that Communism will defeat Capitalism and the West given sufficient time, and time has always been in the favor of China. Where in the west we count our seconds and minutes, in China they count centuries and millennia. This has and still is an advantage as China operates on an entirely different view where they do not need to win today or tomorrow or in the next ten or hundred years. They believe that their patience and belief that their children or their children will one day rule the world will win them any contest.

 

So, as each of these conflicts is about supremacy of some sort, how does one become the victor? Let us take these situations in reverse order and start with China. There is no defeating the Chinese, only proving preeminent for now. If you can show China a strong front which is obviously a match if not superior to their current ability, China will lay back and wait building slowly but inexorably towards closing any gap or perceived deficiency. Currently China is building her Navy adding submarines and aircraft carriers. These are currently smaller and less capable than those of the United States, but China is rapidly making gains in the production of these vessels. This should not present a problem in the immediate as the United States can produce these as they wish as they just launched a new super carrier recently, the USS George H.W Bush CVN-77, which was the tenth of these super-carriers, three of which are currently stationed in or around the Sea of Japan and right off the coast of North Korea and China and rather close to the South China Sea when one considers the range of their aircraft (see image below). Where China will have difficulty keeping abreast of the United States militarily is simple, the United States spends more on her defense budget than China, Russia, India, Israel, Brazil, Britain, and Saudi Arabia combined. China knows they may be the eight-hundred-pound gorilla in the western Pacific, Sea of Japan, South China Sea and surrounding waters, but the United States is the ten-ton gorilla anywhere on the globe whenever she chooses to be so and the area just off China and North Korea currently has that privilege. China will rest and dream of a few centuries down the line but right now had best be concerned with India which is poised to become the most populous nation within a decade or two surpassing China. That one-child policy has really come to bite China.

Next is North Korea where Kim Jong-un is perfecting his ICBMs and his nuclear warheads for immediate future use against the United States. What people need remember is that the United States and North Korea are at war as are North and South Korea with one another. The United States and South Korea stand opposed to North Korea across an area which resembles a World War I no man’s land and both sides take casualties every so often just to punctuate the distrust and animosity. North Korea has sufficient artillery and rocket launchers including multiple-launch rocket vehicles (MLRV) to completely decimate the entirety of the greater Seoul metropolitan area. That would amount to millions of casualties and the decimation of the South Korean economy. This has been their threat for years and it has worked as planned. Now North Korea is on the verge of a new threat, nuclear annihilation to any city on Earth or an even more devastating weapons, a super EMP device which is a low yield but dirty nuclear device with a yield under twenty-five kilotons but which produces a massive EMP wave which destroys virtually all functioning electronics being active at the time. This includes the massive power transformers used in the electrical grid. If these are not heavily shielded and hardened against such a device they will explode, causing fires and massive outages of electrical power, quite possibly much of the North American or European grids. There are very limited numbers of companies which manufacture these transformers, as demand for them is proportional to the expansion of the world electrical grids which moves at a steady but slow rate, all things considered. Such a device could put a nation like the United States without adequate electrical generation and delivery capability for as long as a decade or even two resulting in a loss of over half if not three-quarters of the population. If such a device were detonated over Kansas City, the entirety of the central United States and reaching well into Canada would be affected. That is the threat the United States and potentially Europe face from North Korea as soon as they have the rocket and a warhead version making such a device deliverable, something they could already posses. There is no delicate means for addressing this threat short of decapitating the entirety of the North Korean military command and structure and then having South Korea take as much of the peninsula as China will allow them. It is very possible that the Chinese will not interfere in such an instance, as they would not care to absorb the problems economically which exists in North Korea.

Iran is fortunately not an immediate problem. One such problem is sufficient. Iran though is a growing problem which in some means resembles North Korea. The leadership of Iran feels they, as a whole, are superior to other people as they are the most learned in the Quran which gives them all the knowledge necessary to win. They have the ideology of Islam which promises them that Allah will make them the conquerors of the entire planet and all that their god commands. If life was found on a distant world and the Islamic peoples were aware of such and believed that to be a truth, then they would also expect to conquer that planet and subjugate and eventually convert or murder everyone. The main problem Iran has is Islam itself. Iran is Shiite Islam which is a small percentage of Muslims while Sunni Islam is easily ten times their numbers. Of course should Iran gain nuclear missiles and nuclear warheads, that might change rapidly. Then akin, if Iran developed nuclear weapons one can bet that Saudi Arabia would simply purchase a number of warheads sufficient to remove Iran and her allies from the map and then do so. Next to North Korea, Islam on Islam internecine warfare is the second highest risk of nuclear war breaking out on our globe. The most likely is between Saudi Arabia and Iran and should that occur and the Saudi Arabia manage to lose that exchange, the next would be Egypt who would likely ally so fast with Pakistan and likely arrange the launch to come from Pakistan as they are closer to Iran anyways. Egypt would waste no time getting aid from the United States and possibly even seek assistance from, of all places, Israel to intercept anything headed for Egypt as well as defending herself. Iran may soon require being toppled, something which a wise United States State Department would already be working on. Unfortunately the United States State Department has never really shown much of a proclivity for doing the right thing ever since World War I, they were even almost on the wrong side of World War II except the rest of the United States chose better.

 

Finally, we get to the Arabs and Israel. This is a very basic and simple situation. The Arabs are Muslims and the Israelis are Jews. To the Arab mind this is a simple problem, they are Islam, the sole true religion on earth and Israel are the Jews, the most contemptable religion on earth. Are there any questions after that description? There are only two results in this situation, either the Jews are annihilated or the Arabs go away or are so subjugated and defeated that even the sight of a yarmulke makes them shake with terrorizing, gripping fear. The problem is the world refuses to allow Israel to win such a victory and demands Israel make concessions to repair a political situation. Every concession Israel makes just has the Arabs believing Israel is frightened of them and reinforces their sense of superiority making the solution that much more distant. Should Israel be permitted to go through the Arab areas, take all the terrorists out and deal with them in a primitive and brutal manner, the problem would end the next sunrise. Even if the Jordanian Arabs were to get their independence from the Jordanian King and invite the Arabs to move to Jordan, they would still believe that they should conquer Israel as well. Only a defeat of the Arabs living within the lands promised Israel would end this conflict for the time being. There is only one thing which would solve this problem permanently, but the world is nowhere near ready to hear such an idea, though that time is soon to come or the world is in worse shape than we thought. Islam will require having its wings clipped and clipped severely such that the sound of a jet engine or the sound of tank tracks or a car motor sends then quivering to the furthest corner. Islam in several means is resurgent and will start to attempt conquest if not prevented through a display of actual willingness to prevent such an explosive force of destruction. Imagine terrorist attacks the globe over similar to what Israel faced in the Second Intifada and you have an idea of how such a war will soon progress. Israel has still to come to terms with this truth; the world is even further from this realization. There are some who see this such as John Bolton, Geert Wilders, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Brigitte Gabriel and a select group of others. The only hope is for the world to awaken before it becomes necessary for another World at War.

Time is Ticking and Storms are Brewing

 

A couple of weeks back we wrote a fairly vague article titled Some Cataclysm This Way Comes where we wrote that something unpleasant is brewing and then spent time speaking of how wars start from the smallest of things and can become worldwide actions. Things are heating up as the Syrian debacle winds itself down and Iran takes control over much of the Syrian territory. The most important area in Syria is a triangle initially identified by Mark Langfan in an article here (map below). The area is marked by the three cities of At Tanf, Abu Kamal, and Ar Rusafah. The area was, and some still is, held by Daesh, also called Islamic State. It is important because it controls the Iraqi-Syrian border through which Iran is now able to pass any and all military and other equipment they require freely and without interference and far from prying eyes. Of course, everything is visible both day and night to the satellites and to their eyes in the stratosphere which can read the book left open in your lap while you watch the children play. Their sight is almost as sharp at night as in midday. These are owned by the major players who are currently both diddling in the same sandbox called Syria. As was in the good old days, they are not on the same side but at least they are not entirely opposing one another. While President Vladimir Putin is supporting Syrian President Bashir al-Assad, President Donald Trump has been backing the Kurds. Both sides are fighting against Islamic State while Bashir al-Assad and his Iranian allies are attempting to destroy every Sunni group backed by Saudi Arabia. It is hoped that President Putin has at least taken the precaution of telling his “friends” to leave the Kurdish troops, the Peshmerga and civilians alone even if they are apparently Sunni, after all the Sunni did not particularly like the Kurds either. Then there are the side players, which obviously includes the Saudi Royals as well as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who has already felt the wrath of Russian President Putin and thus has altered his target from al-Assad to the Kurdish civilians and their Peshmerga fighters. Soon he may hear from President Trump or perhaps President Trump would have President Putin make a polite request that Erdoğan simply pass on everything Syria if he would like to be on everybody involveds’ good side. The real mess in Syria includes Iraq which is also attempting to cleanse their nation of Sunnis one way or another. All of this is to realize the Iranian dream we have been mentioning for quite some time, the Shiite crescent from the Indian Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea. Iran has accomplished its objective over the past eight years with the blessings and condoning eyes of the Obama administration. All that is left is to clean the route up and secure it for the rest of time granting them free access to the Israeli border whenever they so desire. What is reassuring for Israel is that Iran has other fish they so dearly desire to fry first and that also gives the world time to wake up to what is coming as Iran wants to control the world. That is correct, we have one more contestant who desires world conquest and apparently, President Erdoğan appears to have signed on as he has been providing troops to Qatar, the possible flash point at the moment.

 

Syrian Triangle as Reported by Mark Langfan

Syrian Triangle as Reported by Mark Langfan

 

Currently Qatar has been playing a game of nerves using their media outlets to attack the Saudi Royal Family calling into question their religious observance and morals. They have accused the Saudis of allying with Israel and being the stooge of the United States. They have used Al-Jazeera, the print, on-line and television in these attacks. This started when right before President Trump made his visit to Saudi Arabia where he met with fifty Arab national leaders. There had been an agreement reached with Qatar, UAE, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia to purchase weapons and Qatar broke from the deal followed by Bahrain and UAE leaving Saudi Arabia holding the bag for the entire deal. Soon after the meeting with President Trump, Saudi Arabia led the Gulf States in pulling their ambassadors from Qatar and started to apply diplomatic and economic pressure on Qatar. Qatar has not even given the slightest sign of backing down. Additionally, one can be assured that Iran will back their friends in Qatar. Additionally, Turkey has chosen to side with Iran as well and has sent troops to Qatar. Where this will lead is anybody’s guess, and there are too many twists coming to even guess at this point. Iran is not likely ready to press too far quite yet as they have too many fronts, where they are facing opposition. They are not only stuck in the Syrian civil war but also the war in Yemen. Iran has their eyes on Saudi Arabia, and particularly the oil fields as well as Mecca and Medina, the Islamic Holy Cities. Their plan is and always has been to have two fronts, Iraq and Yemen. They also require such an attack to be made when they can apply their full force and all of this requires that they finish their wars in Yemen and Syria. The time to worry will come when the civil wars in Syria and in Yemen jump to a higher level of violence, and it will be a significant increase. When that increase brings the wars to a close, then Iran will begin their plans to replace Saudi Arabia as the main force within the Arab Middle East. That will be the start of the Iranian hopes to make Shiite Islam the dominant form of Islam replacing Sunni. After Saudi Arabia, the next target will most likely be Egypt, the most populous Arab state.

 

Obama wanted to have Iran take charge from Saudi Arabia and rule the Middle East. This will, at some point, run directly into President Trump and his backing of the Kurdish communities. What is the saddest part is the Kurds are pawns in a far larger game and they only desire one thing, their own land and to be left in peace. Unfortunately, and this is something Israel knows all too well, peace in the Middle East is a luxury bought with eternal vigilance and a very competent and well armed military. The only thing the Middle East respects is the ability to use and dispense force, and it will spread to North Africa if not stopped early. The coming struggle for the Middle East will likely be sparked through Qatar using some border infringement, real or falsely started just as the war with Poland was initiated by the Nazis which led to World War II. This all rolls back to another of our themes, there are still national leaders who have the concept of world conquest as an achievable goal and that they will be the ones who will finally accomplish the feat. Yes, I know that the nations of the Western World have long given up on world conquest while many leaders in the remainder of the world have not yet surrendered on that concept. Among the nations which still consider world conquest as something they believe could be in their future in the recent times have included Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s Turkey, The USSR, China, who may still have that idea, Iran, which definitely believes the world will become their oyster, and we are sure that there are or will be others as also in the recent past include, please do not laugh, Venezuela. The nations believing they should rule the world are a slightly longer list, but there are some crazies out there who believe they will conquer the world and we would be remiss if we did not mention our favorite certifiable dictator in North Korea, Kim Jong-un. We will need to wait and see but for the safety of the world and sanity’s sake, could somebody please change the leadership in Iran before they cause some growing conflagration? Please.

United Nations and the Kurdistan Independence Referendum

 

The United Nations has withdrawn any participation for monitoring or otherwise supervising any Kurdish resolution for establishing their own state in what would formerly have been Iraq. The Kurdish claim has many facets of which there are two that are most mentioned. The first has been their treatment under Saddam Hussein and his Baathists as well as the Sunnis who supported him whose joint actions included attempted ethnic cleansing, nerve agent attacks on civilian targets, military attacks upon civilians and refusal of representation in the government. The second of these is the current government made up predominantly of Shiites who have refused all attempts by the Kurds to receive promised recognition, suppressed any requests for addressing needs of the Kurdish population and further has refused to provide the promised share of government revenue. Further, the current Shiite government is closely allied with Iran who have proven problematic for the Kurdish population of Iran as well as harassed the Kurds residing in Iraq. Since both other major sects who would likely rule Iraq in any future have proven to mistreat the Kurds, their only recourse is to act to take leave of their former rulers and form their own governance. It is a pity they do not have a Thomas Jefferson to draft a formal document dissolving all ties the Kurdish community has with Iraq. But thus far, the greatest blow has been the refusal of the United Nations to address the Kurdish situation or to even grant them some supervision for their referendum.

 

The Kurds of Iraq and Syria could together form land sufficient for a nation and would permit the Kurdish populations of the areas to unite against their common enemies and establish their own borders and then be able to defend that border against the Islamic State and all other forces as required, which the Kurdish militias have already undertaken. About the only things currently lacking from the formations of lands forming the nation of Kurdistan, are the recognitions by other nations of their sovereignty. The Kurdish People are choosing a correct path for the formation of their state with the referendum, especially if all residing within their territorial area, which would include the Yazidis, and the intent to allow them participation in the new nations, especially the Yazidis as they are related closely to the Kurdish People by language and culture. As for nations who should recognize the referendum and its outcome, we will hit that further into the article.

 

There are other reasons why a nation for the Kurdish People is necessary and proper. The British had promised the Kurdish their own nation after World War I for their assistance in fighting the Ottoman Empire, something the Turkish People have never forgiven. The British broke their promise folding to Arab pressure to place these lands and the oil under them with Arab control of one of the sons of the Arab King Faisal who aided the British as well. This resulted in Iraq and Jordan being ruled by his sons before revolutionary coup removed the King in Iraq while the Hashemites still rule in Jordan. Jordan was cut from the British Mandate thus taken from the Jewish Zionists who had no power to prevent such a move and Iraq was extended to include the Kurds who were unable to prevent their promised land being stolen. It appears the British had a weakness for seeing all things through the eyes of the Arabs and had little cause to promote their other promises as the Arabs opposed these other deals, the formation of the Jewish state of Israel and the formation of a Kurdish state of Kurdistan. The Kurds, like the Jews, are rejected by the Arabs despite the vast majority of Kurds being Muslims (the Christian Kurds are the Yazidis) as they are not Arab and have pretty much been a closed society with little intermarriage with the Arabs which so many other peoples did to their detriment. So, we have probably just touched on the reason the United Nations had backed away from overseeing anything to do with Kurdish independence, the Arabs plus Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and particularly Syria’s Bashir al-Assad, which probably places Russia and Vladimir Putin against any Kurdish independence.

 

Of course, President Erdoğan has designs on the Kurdish lands as he has stated he will fight the Islamic State but he has a price for his fighting them and that is to expand Turkey to include Aleppo, Syria and Mosul, Iraq. President Erdoğan is not satisfied with his current position nor the borders of Turkey and has designs on a Greater Turkey, which includes all of the Kurdish lands and beyond (see map below). President Erdoğan seeks to destroy, completely wipe out, or at least significantly diminish any Kurdish influence or presence in these lands upon which he has set his sights. He seeks this Greater Turkey as his first step towards the reestablished start of the Ottoman Empire with himself as the next Caliph. This is part of the reason much of the Turkish troop movements and air engagements have been against the Kurdish areas which he claims are his brave fighters taking on the Islamic State. President Erdoğan’s troops would likely fare better if they were fighting the Islamic State as the Kurds have proven to be a powerful enemy; but Erdoğan has his close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and has sent troops to assist in the defense of Qatar, as he opposes Saudi Arabia, seeing them as the major challenge to his aspirations.

 

Greater Turkey

Greater Turkey

 

Finally, Erdoğan wishes to eliminate the Kurdish population much as his predecessor Grand Vizier of the Ottoman Empire Mehmed Talaat Pasha performed genocidal efforts against the Armenians from 1880 right up through 1915 into World War I. On 29 May 1915, the CUP Central Committee passed the Temporary Law of Deportation (“Tehcir Law”), which granted the Ottoman military authorization to deport anyone it believed to be a threat to national security. Using the Tehcir Law, mass property seizures of Armenian properties ensued and the Armenians were simply executed for resisting deportation and having been deemed a threat to the nation of the Ottoman Empire. We can see very similar claims coming from President Erdoğan against the Kurds both within and beyond his borders. President Erdoğan with his claims to a Greater Turkey has already annexed and confiscated in all manners the lands of the Kurds which is leading to his attempted genocidal removal of the Kurds. Erdoğan will find the Kurds far more difficult and troublesome to remove than the disarmed Armenians were to the Ottoman troops, an armed population always has greater rights which extend as far as they wish to defend them.

 

Our Idea for a Proposed Kurdistan

Our Idea for a Proposed Kurdistan

 

That brings us to the best reason for many nations, of which we will drop a few names, to monitor and validate the Kurdish referendum. Should they vote, an all but foregone conclusion, for independence, they should immediately recognize their nation of Kurdistan and grant this nation lands which include all the Kurdish lands in Iraq, Syria and Iran, as well as Turkey, should Turkey be so foolish as to declare the land for Turkey and ensue their referendum with an invasion, something which is very conceivable. The first two nations who should jump at the opportunity to recognize a proposed Kurdistan and even recognize at the least the lands in northern Iraq as well as the Kurdish areas in northeastern Syria are the United States and Israel, but for separate reasons.

 

The United States upon the declaration of the nation of Kurdistan should open relations so as to be able to arm the Kurdish Army, formerly the Peshmerga Kurdish Militias, for two-fold reasons. The first is so they can continue their efforts against the Islamic State, much of which is defensive in nature, and second that they will be capable of resisting any attacks by the Iraqi government and especially from the Turkish government. The United States might even go so far as to threaten Turkey’s President Erdoğan that any encroachment or attacks on independent Kurdish lands could result in the United States supporting a referendum amongst the Kurdish communities of south eastern Turkey to secede from Turkey and join the lands of Kurdistan and be ruled by the Kurdish government. This would be a large step towards disassembling the grievous error which was the Sykes-Picot Agreement (map at link) which divided the Ottoman Empire with complete disregard for tribal allegiances and borders thus splitting tribal lands between nations and placing rival tribes within the same borders leading to disruptions and inability for normal governance. This led to strong man dictatorial regimes which were unstable and a source of perpetual grief. The United States would be doing themselves and the world a favor by taking the first and a great and large step towards dissolving the arbitrary lines of the Sykes-Picot Agreement and allowing for normative lines and relations to be developed. This would be a step towards solving much of the strife found within the Arab and Muslim world which were part of the Ottoman Empire.

 

Israel should recognize the Kurdish nations, Kurdistan, simply because they would make natural allies. We realize that Kurdistan is Sunni Muslim but also recognize that they are not Arab and the Arabs have always given the Kurds the back of their hand against their cheeks, and that was when they were feeling sympathetic. They have attempted genocide on the other days, both Sunnis and Shiites. The Kurds and Israel have had secretive agreements over the years and it would simply be natural for the two to form an alliance of mutual support. Israel probably would not be expecting to sign any mutual defense treaty, at least not formally, but they could make for good trade partners and a way for Israel to reach into the Islamic world having a sympathetic inlet. There are just too many similarities as both were stolen from by the British, the Kurds somewhat more as they lost their entire promised nations. Israel recognizes such unfairness and the support for righting such wrongs, just as the United States does, well, more often than not. Lastly, Israel can always use one more friend from amongst the nations of the world.

 

The United Nations should recognize the rights of the Kurdish People for self-rule. But as that would be the right and proper thing for the United Nations to do, it is unlikely that is what they would do. It is a given that with the Arab world against the establishment of Kurdistan that it would come down to how the Nonaligned Nations (NAM) voted, as normally they back the Arabs; but this is a nation shaking off the wrongs of colonial injustice, something the NAM nations usually support such as South Sudan. But Kurdistan would not be in Africa or Asia but rather in the Middle East; so they may simply figure it is none of their business or interest and thus split making the vote likely to be negative. Further, in the Security Council it can be depended upon Russia in support of Iran and Syria and thus also Iraq to use their veto if needed and China for similar reasons as well, so recognition of a Kurdish nation by the Security Council would most definitely delay any hope they would have for joining the United Nations, that is assuming they would desire such a badge of shame. Let’s face it, belonging to the United Nations has not exactly been a bed of roses for Israel as she has gotten only disrespect and dishonored by the institutions of the United Nations. Only the WHO has recognized Israeli achievements and their work with underdeveloped nations and any nation suffering a crisis. So, the United Nations and Kurdistan would be a big ‘if’ at best. Still, we here continue to support the Kurdish People and pray they get their state and it includes all the Kurdish People and Turkey allows their Kurds who desire to relocate without any impositions such as special taxations, fees, demands they surrender their property, denial of funds from financial institutions, military force to retain them or other unnecessary impositions. Allowing them to safely depart is far more preferable than your other idea, genocidal wiping the Kurds wherever you can find them to build your nightmare Caliphate on their dead bodies as that is an abomination.
