The Kurdish Terror – Showed Their Ugly Face Once Again by Raiding of a Turkmen House

 
By Mofak Salman, Turkmeneli Party Representative for Both Ireland and United Kingdom

On the 5th of November 2008  U.S. soldiers accompanied by Kurdish security forces,  known as Asayish,  raided the home of Turkmen citizen  Nazim Suleiman Begoglu in the Turkmen city of Kirkuk, district of Althbat .

According to a member of the family who was present in the house during the raid, the U.S. forces who were accompanied by a group of Kurdish security forces “Asayish”, broke the doors and penetrated in the house just after midnight.
They entered the house after smashing the main gates and doors, then they arrested two of the sons: Nabil Nazim Suleiman, aged thirty and his brother Zakaria Nazim Suleiman aged twenty-eight who worked in a shop selling electrical appliances in downtown Kirkuk. 

The Asayish were wearing Ballaklavas, there was a Kurdish flag on the sleeves of their uniform and they spoke with a  Kurdish accent.

The Asayish and American forces destroyed the furniture,  smashed doors and windows and randomly fired bullets using automatic machine guns inside the house in order to terrify the innocent unarmed Turkmen family.

They moved all the members of the family into a single room and they tied their hands behind their backs and faced them to the wall. The children and the women of the family were body searched and this is utterly unacceptable in the culture and the tradition of Islam and the  Turkmen culture especially. This criminal act was carried out by the Kurdish Asayish and US forces despite the assurances that were given by the central government and officials that raids could not be carried out on the homes of the citizens without a warrant.

According to the information that has been released, the raiding forces requested the frightened Turkmen family to show them their savings and jewelry, the family did so under the force of a gun.  US forces and Asayish stole their savings and jewelry during the raid. This matter should be urgently investigated by the US occupying forces in Kirkuk because they are responsible for the safety and security.

After the incident the Turkmen family approached the police in Kirkuk, the political organizations and the governor of Kirkuk Mustafa Abdullrahman who is a Kurd (appointed by the US forces) asking for help and assistance. Assurances were given to the Turkmen family by the Kirkuk governor that there would be an investigation of the incident but unfortunately no proper action has been taken.

The arbitrary arrests of the two brothers, Zakaria and Nabil Nazim Suleiman Begoglu by the Asayish and US occupied forces are a clear violation of human rights. The brothers are still detained  by the occupying forces and no one knows where they are imprisoned. The family of the detainees have not been given any reason for their arrest and the detainees have not been given access to a lawyer.

28 تموز 2009

 

 

(( 28 تموز يوم الإرادة للشعب التركماني  ))

 

 

توافدت الأحزاب و التشكيلات و المنظمات و الشخصيات التركمانية إلى رئاسة الجبهة التركمانية العراقية صباح يوم 28 تموز 2009 و وقفوا معا في الساعة العاشرة و سبعة دقائق أي في الوقت الذي تمت فيه مهاجمة رئاسة الجبهة التركمانية العراقية

 و مؤسسات تركمانية أخرى

كانت وقفة تؤكد وحدة التركمان بجميع أحزابهم و تشكيلاتهم حين يكون الأمر مرتبطا بالتمسك بالأرض و الحقوق و الإرادة التي أظهرتها الجبهة التركمانية العراقية بإعادة اعمار مقر رئاستها بصورة أبهى مما كانت عليها و بخطوة أظهرت الفرق بين البناء

 و التدمير

 و على قاعة الشهيد نجدت قوجاق في رئاسة الجبهة التركمانية العراقية رحب الدكتور سعد الدين أركيج رئيس الجبهة التركمانية العراقية و عضو مجلس النواب بالحاضرين  مذكرا بان في مثل هذا اليوم من عام 2008 قامت مجموعة مجردة من الإنسانية و الحضارة و الثقافة و بدعم و مساندة بعض الأطراف المعروفة باعتداء آثم على بيت جميع التركمان ألا و هو الجبهة التركمانية العراقية و بعض المؤسسات التركمانية، و باعتقادنا أن من قام بهذا الفعل الجبان إنما عبر عن عدم إنسانيته و ارتكب جريمة مبيتة و بنيات سيئة تخجل منها الإنسانية ، متخذين من التفجير الذي حدث قرب المحافظة ذريعة واهية للبدء بجريمتهم رغم أن التركمان قد استنكروا التفجير

و أضاف الدكتور أركيج: صحيح أن في يوم28 تموز 2008 تعرضنا إلى خسائر مادية لكننا حصلنا على نصر معنوي كبير تمثل في بيان مدى خوف الغوغائيين و من يساندهم ومدى رعبهم من الشعب التركماني و إن مثل هذه العمليات الجبانة لا تخدم السلام و المحبة و الإخوة

و دعا السيد رئيس الجبهة جميع أبناء الشعب التركماني إلى التوحد و تفعيل المصالحة و الحب داخلنا و إظهار مدى محبتنا بيننا ، حيث لا احد يحب التركمان مثلما يحب بعضنا البعض، و إن في مثل هذه الأوقات نحن أحوج ما نكون لان نضع أيادينا في أيادي بعضنا البعض و نحتضن إخواننا و نلتف حول قضيتنا المصيرية

ثم خاطب أركيج الشباب التركماني قائلا

انتم أيها الشباب عماد مستقبلنا و عليكم التفاني في أداء واجباتكم القومية على الساحة و في الأحزاب السياسية الحقيقية ، و نحن بحاجة قصوى إلى شبابنا الآن و في المستقبل و نريد أن نراهم مجتمعين و ندعمهم لان قوتنا هي من قوة شبابنا

إن على أحزابنا و تشكيلاتنا أن يدركوا أهمية الشباب بشكل حقيقي لأنهم الأساس الذي سيبنى عليه مستقبل التركمان

وقال السيد رئيس الجبهة

إن يوم 28 تموز هو يوم الإرادة عند التركمان، و لا نريد لأي واحد أن ينزف قطرة دم واحدة لكننا لن نكون لقمة سائغة في أفواه الطامعين

و في ختام حديثه أكد الدكتور اركيج ، إن الحق دوما يأتي مع أصحابه و من يمتلك الحق يمتلك القوة و الاحترام مشيرا إلى أن قوتنا في وحدتنا و لا ننتظر من احد أن يمنحنا أي شيء فكل حقوقنا سننتزعها و لن نضعف أمام جميع التحديات مهما كبرت فنحن أحفاد أولئك الرجال العظام الذين أتحفوا العالم بالحضارة و النور و هذه أرضنا

 وهي أمانة في رقابنا و يجب المحافظة عليها و الواجب الأكبر يقع على الشباب في الحفاظ على الشعب و الأرض

هذا و القى السادة جمال شان رئيس الحزب الوطني التركماني و السيد محمد قيردار نائب الأمين العام لحزب القرار التركماني و السيد فلاح زيدان رئيس تجمع القوميين التركمان و المهندس ياسين حميد رئيس المجلس الاستشاري التركماني كلمات أكدوا فيها انه بالرغم من الغضب و الألم الذي تسبب به ما ارتكبه الغوغائيين ضد المؤسسات التركمانية إلا انه في الوقت نفسه برهن على إن لا خلافات حقيقية بين التركمان الذين وقفوا معا ضد ما حدث

و ألقت كذلك عضوة مجلس محافظة كركوك زالة نفطجي و السيد محمد عمر قازانجي رئيس نادي الاخاء التركماني كلمتين عبروا فيه عن الدلالة الكبيرة ليوم 28 تموز في اثبات ارادة التركمان العالية

و حضر التجمع عدد من أعضاء الهيئة التنفيذية للجبهة التركمانية العراقية و أعضاء من الكتلة التركمانية في مجلسي محافظة و قضاء كركوك و الأحزاب و التشكيلات السياسية و منظمات المجتمع المدني و شخصيات تركمانية 

          

Kurdish asayish’s brutal attack on young Turkmen in Taza Khurmatu

 Peshmerge

The following is a message I received about the abduction and beating of a young Turkmen by the Kurdish asayish in Taza Khurmatu:

 Turkmen citizen abused

 

 

 

31-05-2009

Salih Abdul Samad Ibrahim is a 21 year old Turkmen citizen who lives in Taza Khurmatu ( a city situated south of Kerkuk province) he belongs to a farmer family.

On Sunday 24th May 2009, at sunset, Ibrahim was captured by a group of Asayish (Kurdish security) he was severely beaten all over his body and head with sticks and with a rifle.

 
 
 Ibrahim said he was walking home when a car deliberately hit him and some men got out of the car and started to beat him until he fell unconscious. He said that later they put him in the trunk of the car and took him to the Asayish centre where they made threats on his life and continued to beat him.
 
 
The asayish threatened they would kill him and drop him in a water well.
  
 

 

 

 

 

He was rescued by Taza police as the Asayish were trying to sneak away from the crime scene and telling him that if he made any complaint they would take revenge on him.
 
The abduction operation had been reported to the local police authorities by Ibrahim’s uncle and other eye witnesses.
 
 Abdul Samad Ibrahim’s father has strongly condemned the attack calling upon the Iraqi government and the local administration in Kerkuk to shut down the asayish centres in Taza Khurmatu.
 
 Wide condemnations sparked the next day, Turkmen citizens in Taza Khurmatu demanded that the Iraqi government and the governor of Kerkuk close down the Kurdish security centres and force the Kurdish parties to withdraw all their armed militias from Turkmen areas. They demanded that the Iraqi authorities  provide more protection for the unarmed Turkmen citizens who are left at the mercy of brutal Kurdish asayish.
 
Taza Khurmatu is a Turkmen city, no Kurds or Arabs live there, the Kurdish militia’s presence is unwanted and the inhabitants of the city demand that the Prime Minister orders the removal of all Kurdish militias from their city.
 
This is not the first incident of torture and abuse against Turkmen citizens in Kerkuk, Taza Khurmatu, Tuz Khurmatu and other areas populated by Turkmens.
 
The abuse against Ibrahim comes amid repeated visits of Kurdish political parties to the Turkmen political parties.  During these visits Kurdish officials always speak of coexistence and bilateral historic relationships between Kurds and Turkmens, but such attacks show how brutally the Kurdish asayish behave against the Turkmens.
 
 Turkmeneli TV is the only one to report such abuses on Turkmen citizens by the Kurdish asayish.  After his rescue Salih Abdul Samad Ibrahim  was interviewed in a special TV programme on Turkmeneli TV.

The Iraqi Turkmen Front strongly criticized this attack against a Turkmen citizen and demanded the removal of all Kurdish militias from Kerkuk and other Turkmen regions.

Mr. Sadun Köprülü, the Iraqi Turkmen Front representative in Turkey also issued a condemnation message on Turkmeneli TV, he asked the Iraqi government to take the necessary steps to stop the abuses against the Turkmens in Iraq.

The Reality of the Kurdish Violence in Kerkuk 

By Mofak Salman Kerkuklu

(Excerpt)

 

On the 27th of July 2008 the secret police which is linked to the two Kurdish parties distributed leaflets informing the people of Kerkuk, especially the Turkmens to participate in a protest that had been organised by the Kurds against the adoption of the law of elections for provincial assemblies causing a postponement of elections in the city for an indefinite period. The Kurdish police who accompanied the Kurdish Asayish ordered the Turkmen shop owners to close their shops and warned that anyone who opened his shop would be subjected to punishment and that his shop would be ransacked. The Kurdish Asayish separated roamers that all the governmental buildings would be closed and the Kurdish directors in Kerkuk informed the Turkmen employees not to attend work and warned that anyone failing to do so would be punished and that his wages would be cut.

 

After receiving these threats, the Turkmen inhabitants of Kerkuk were extremely worried as this event reminded them of the Kurdish massacre of the Turkmens in 1959, when Turkmens were burned, and executed.

During the 1959 massacre some Turkmens were attached to ropes and pulled behind cars in the main street of Kerkuk by the Kurds and some communist party members.

Remembering these tragic events the Turkmens of Kerkuk started to panic and they approached the Turkmen member of the Kerkuk governing council Mr. Hassan Turan and the Turkmen Chief of Police Burhan Tayip, to ask them for advice and help.
