8 injured in explosion in Istanbul Turkey
May †25, †2011
† a bomb mounted on a bicycle near a bus stop exploded during morning rush hour in Istanbul on Thursday, wounding eight people, including a police officer. The government said the attack resembled a Kurdish rebel operation.
Several ambulances rushed to the scene of the bombing on a multilane thoroughfare in a busy commercial area of Turkey's biggest city. Media reports said one woman lost a leg in the blast and another sustained severe burns to her face. Television footage showed medics moving a woman with a neck brace on a stretcher into a hospital.

Police Chief Huseyin Capkin said the bomb was not powerful, but was still designed to cause moderate destruction. Police were investigating whether the target was a police training school nearby, and whether the bomb was time- or remote-controlled.

"They will not get away with it," Capkin said of the culprits. "The people of Istanbul should feel at ease."
He said none of the wounded, including a policeman, was in life-threatening condition. Five vehicles were damaged.

CNN-Turk television said the explosion occurred as a bus passed by, shattering its rear windows and injuring passengers in the back of the vehicle. Fearing a secondary blast, police sealed off the area with yellow tape until after bomb disposal experts conducted a search.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan acknowledged that an investigation was ongoing, but said the attack carried the hallmarks of Kurdish rebels, the Anatolia news agency reported.

"When we look at the style, it appears to be related to the terrorist organization," Erdogan said. Turkish authorities do not mention the rebel Kurdistan Workers' Party, or PKK, by name in public, only referring to it as a terrorist group.

In 2007, bombs were mounted on bicycles in the mostly Kurdish city of Diyarbakir in the southeast, and the western coastal city of Izmir. Authorities blamed Kurdish rebels for those attacks, which killed one person and wounded about 20. The website of Hurriyet newspaper cited a similar bicycle bombing in 2006 in the southern coastal city of Mersin, where Kurdish militants are active.

Thursday's blast occurred amid escalating calls by Turkish Kurds for autonomy and other rights ahead of June 12 elections, as well as dark warnings from the jailed rebel chief that Turkey faces more conflict if the government does not negotiate. The guerrilla force, known as PKK, is far less potent than in the 1990s, but suspected militants from the group have periodically staged bombings in urban areas.

The guerrillas took up arms in 1984, and more than 40,000 people have died in the conflict. Much of the violence centers on the predominantly Kurdish southeast of the country, with rebels resupplying and sheltering in bases across the border in northern Iraq.

A government campaign to address the grievances of Kurds by granting more cultural rights and economic benefits has struggled for traction. The governing party is the front-runner in the election campaign, and its pledges of a new constitution and other democratic reforms after the vote are seen as a critical test of its commitment to solving the Kurdish conflict.

Turkey also has a history of attacks by Islamic and leftist extremists.
In 2003, Islamic militants tied to al-Qaida carried out suicide bombings in Istanbul, killing 58 people.
An attack blamed on al-Qaida-affiliated militants outside the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul in 2008 left three attackers and three policemen dead.

Kurdistan - a new Israeli ally?
Aug 11, 2013
 Kurds carve out an autonomous region in Syria.
Kurdistan also includes parts of Turkey, Iraq and Iran.
In July the Kurdish PYD declared self-rule in majority Kurdish areas in northeastern Syria for the duration of the Syrian civil war.
This makes Turkey nervous.  Turkey is home to the largest Kurdish population.
While Turkey, Iraq, and Iran balk at Kurdish self-rule, it would be a gift for Israel.

Kurds are deeply sympathetic to Israel and an independent Kurdistan will be beneficial to Israel.
It will create a balance of power. Right now, Israel is one country against many. But with an independent Kurdish state Israel will have a friend.

30 million Kurds are the worlds largest stateless nation
IRAQ Kurds run the autonomous KRG since 2005 thanks to USA.
The new Kurdish country will likely open full diplomatic relations with Israel. The Kurds are the only nation in the region that has not been filled with hatred toward Israel and America.

Turkey's Erdogan announces Kurdish reforms
Sept. 30, 2013
 Turkey's Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has begun announcing far-reaching political reforms aimed at benefiting Kurds and other minorities.
He has proposed lowering the 10% electoral threshold, which currently prevents Kurdish and other smaller parties entering parliament.
He says towns will be allowed to take Kurdish rather than Turkish names.
He also plans to end the ban on women wearing headscarves in public service - a longstanding goal of his party.

Israel receives first oil shipment from Kurdistan
June 21, 2014  
Israel receives first ever oil shipment from Iraqi Kurdistan
The SCF Altai tanker was anchored near Ashkelon port Friday June 20, 2014.
The tanker delivered a cargo of crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistans (KRG) new pipeline for the first time, despite Baghdad threats.
The new export route to the Turkish port of Ceyhan, designed to bypass Baghdad, has created a bitter dispute over oil sale rights.
The cursed Obama does not support Kurds.

Iraq orphans in Kurdistan
June 24, 2014
†Iraq widows and orphans are afraid for their future.
People in Kurdistan believe they will survive the crisis, even with a shortage of fuel.
But the refugees think that the situation in the country will become worse.

Erbil, Kurdistan is only 60 kilometers from the terrorist state of Sunnistan (Anbar).
Businesses are still prospering, partially due to high inflow of refugees who come from all parts of Iraq.
Though the city has oil, they are running scarce of fuel due to the fighting with ISIS.

IRAQ has become 3 states 2014

Turkey forms T-KDP political party with Kurdistan
July 1, 2014  
Mehmet Emin Kardas is the founding leader of the T-KDP party.
Turkey Kurdistan Democrat Party (T-KDP) has been officially found with the permission of the Supreme Court of Appeals prosecutorís office. The word Kurdistan has been banned in Turkey, and now is being used by a political party for the first time.
The Supreme Court decided the use of the word Kurdistan does not conflict with the Turkish Constitution.

Mehmet Emin Kardas is the founding leader of the T-KDP.
The symbol of the T-KDP is the sun rising behind Mount Ararat and the partyís colors are yellow, red and green, widely seen together in Kurdish-origin party flags.

Kurdish politics and Turkey
The Arab Spring has turned out to be a massive failure.
It brought chaos and division like in Egypt, Libya, and civil war and the decomposition of existing borders in Syria and Iraq.
It established a radical Islamic State in Iraq (ISIL).

They have raised its flag on the Iraqi side of Turkey border post and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared himself the new Caliph of all Muslims on June 29.

ISIL is holding at least 80 Turkish citizens, 49 of them from Turkey Mosul consulate as captives. Turkey has already asked the Iraqi, U.S. and U.K. governments not to perform air raids on ISIL around Mosul in order not to trigger a reaction that could cost the lives of the Turkish captives.

The issue is turning into a crisis for Turkey.
Turkey PM Erdogan gave an unnecessary boost to jihadis and liberated Kurdistan in northern Iraq bordering Turkey, called Rojava. The Kurds in control of Rojava are acting in line with the outlawed PKK.
Erdogan started a dialogue initiative with the PKK imprisoned leader, Abdullah ÷calan two years ago, aiming for a political settlement.

Kurds have been constructing their independence in Iraq under the federal composition called the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), under its leader Masoud Barzani.
Having captured the oil-rich city of Kirkuk after ISIL took Mosul, Barzani said he wanted to hold a referendum for independence from Iraq, and asked for U.N. help.

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu said the Kurds deserve independence.
ISIL declared its state and Caliphate in northwestern Iraqi territory.

June 29 in Ankara the Kurdish HDP named its co-leader, Selahattin Demirtas, as its candidate for the presidential election.
PM Erdogan may not win in the first round.

Kurdistan Borders
July 3, 2014
Kurds in northern Iraq assert their claim to territory and independence.
The sand berms, trenches and roadblocks built to take in areas Kurds seized as Sunni
Muslim terrorists usurped parts of Iraq in June 2014.
Kirkuk area, the capital city of Kurdistan, is a major oil hub.
The barriers define the borders of Kurdistan, which has a mixed population of Kurds, Arabs and Turkmen.  

EGYPT †- †Kurdistan Catastrophic
July 7, 2014 †
Come on Sisi, lighten up!
Egypt President Sisi opposes Kurdistan Iraq, said it would lead to a catastrophic break-up.
This sounds like other Arab nations fear a caliphate rather than desire it.
Probably because they all want to be caliph - I know turkey PM Erdogan does.

Kurds have ruled themselves in relative peace since the 1990s, and have expanded their territory about 40% recently, thanks to isis.
Israeli PM Binyamin Netanyahu supports Kurdistan.
The Turkish government has been wafflinlg both ways.

Kurdistan oil tanker off U.S. coast
July 26, 2014
I think its great - Kurdistan!
Scheduled to dock in Galveston, Texas Sunday July 27th.
A ship carrying crude from Kurdistan is off the coast of Florida Saturday.
The United Kalavryta is operated by Unicom Management Services Ltd.
U.S. State Department said Iraq energy resources belong to all of the Iraqi people.

The United Kalavrvta tanker left the Turkish port of Ceyhan in June carrying oil delivered via a new Kurdish pipeline.

Kurdish oil tanker nears Texas
The US has pressured American companies not to buy oil directly from autonomous Kurdistan, buyer has not been identified.
A sale of Kurdish crude oil to a U.S. refinery would infuriate the Iraqi government.

Very Happy
