Great source of information on what's going on. We can't depend on the MSM to get the word out, hence...Blogers! I've posted on why this isn't covered on the MSM and maybe why Bush isn't all over this.

I think this intiative of yours is
interesting, but the important thing is not to be enthusiastic for a while and then leave the task.
The kurdish people in Eastern Kurdistan have a just demand, as long as these demands are not fullfiled and their political and cultural identity are not recognised or not established their
nobel and great endeavour will continue.
One should bear in mind that civilised way of struggle propagated by PJAK ( Parti Jiyani Azadiy Kurdistan)no dout will find a way to progress.
Those kurd who consentrate on their identity and do not bear hatered towards other cultures are deserved every kind of Support.
Take Care

Change and progress are the source of a better way of life and social relations.
Following up the comments on kurdish uprising in kurdish towns in Eastern kurdistan, one come across views by some political circles which shows that they are not going forward according to the changes which happens in real life.
to say least they are not democratic, groups like Iranian KDP and different wings of KOMELe which in their exile in Iraqi Kurdistan and Eroupe arogantly have engaged in a smeer propaganda against PJAK (Parti Jiyani Azadiy Kurdistan) who has turned into a new hope for the nobel masses of Eastern Kurdistan.
They are better to correct their wrong approach.

The day before yesterday I mean Tusday September 13, may be considered a great day for Kurdish language status.
In the course of a joint press conference by president George W.Bush and President Jalal Talabani of Iraq who has a kurdish origin, the Chief Of VOA's Kurdish Service raised the last question in Kurdish.Talabani intoducing him not in a correct English to Bush asked for his premission to answer the reporter in Kurdish. Of course he said go head, but while Talabani was answering the reporter's question, Bush was unlooking without possibly understanding a word - I think in the protocol they had not thought interprtation will be needed between Kurdish- English-
When the answer by Talabani was finished, Bush used the fine words :
" On that cheery note the press conference is over"
Anyhow no matter what was the content of the raised question and the relatively long answer, and no matter what was going on between the reporter and Iraqi Predident was not eligiable for America's president, it was a good and positive move by the reporter.
Although he could interpret hiself in order to show respect for Mr. Bush!
13th September goes into history as the day KURDISH LANGUAGE imposes
itself as a langauge in such high recounter!

Passing Away of Merziye Feriqi(Rezzazi)!
Today while I was anxious about the procduers of German General elections and wished a heavy defeat for Social Democrats , as a result of their kurdish fobia, I heard with great sadness Merziye Feriqi's death after an operation in a Stockholm hospital.
According to the information she was operated for her lungs last week and was resting at home, today sudenly at around 11.00 hours died at her home in Stockholm, as a result of enfections after the operation.
Merziye was a kurdish woman singer from Meriwan, she was married to renouned kurdish singer Nasir Rezzazi, although Merziye in her artistic carier could be under the shadow of Naser , but she managed to find her own place in the hearts of adherents of Kurdish music.
Some of Kurdish Tv outlets were alert enough to pay tribute to her
at once. The Kurdish Satellite TV,
ROJ tv concelled the life Show of Gulistan Perwere and replaced it with the prerecordeded consert of Merziye.
I share the sarrow of her family and friends. 18 Sepember 2005 will be remembered as a said day.

Turkish Parliament is in Summer recession. Monday 19th September the The Republican People Party (CHP) called for an extra discussion to discuss the "Terrorism" meaning kurdish issue in Turkey. The governing AKP Party although was relactent to attend but at last the number of deputies were enough for the session to go under way. The leader of CHP DEniz Baykal was crying wolf , trying to blame government and the army why it did not shed more blood. the way the debate could not touch the real issue which is the right of Kurdeish people to exist.
At the end the Deputies of Turkish parliament once more their inability to understand the realities of the country.
The Kurdish struggle will contiunue untill it creats a society in which Kurds and turks, and the other could live in it in harmony.

The European Council of Ministers is going to announce tomarrow monday october 3,wether it is going to give a date for accession talks to Turkey or not.
While I am writinf these lines the council is meeting in Luxamburg if
it can find a way to meet the objection of Austria which does not
consider the giving full member satus to Turkey as appropriate.
Although the question of Kurdish rights still remains to be properlly addressed by present Turkish establishment , but A Turkey in Europe at the end have to meet the reality of Kurdish cause, and a Turkey out side Europe is likeley to take steps at the direction of Kurdish recognition.
So Yes to giving a date to Turkey tomarrow!

Hi !
While I am writing these lines I am watching a music show in Kurdish Satellite TV, ROJ Tv. Right now the
Kurdish singer FATE is singing LORKE LORKE a very known an rythmic folk song. It seems she sings it in
playback.
The host of the Show are Gulistan Haci Yasin ( alias Gulistan Perwer) and Barzan Shaswar. I do not see any system in presenting the programme but the hosts are trying to compansate that by their broad smile. The other guest tonight is Qader Elyasi from Cuwanro.
It was just a little reflection about watchin a show of ROJ TV.

Hi!
I thought to inform the visitors here about an interesting book by
Kurdish intellectual Meriwan Wirya Qani' which had its second edition in 2004.The book is published in kurdish and is 360 pages. the title in English translation is :
"luckiness and silence"
some discussions about the actual problems in kurdish society
one chapter of the book which is a reprint of an interview with the Fraternity Centre's Journal in Summer of 2001 deals with the Zoroastrian religion.
Meriwan is asked:
Is there any relation between Zoroastrianism and Kurds ? If there is why up till now it had not been used ?
Meriwan :
First of all I want to strat from this simple fact that I see no connection what so ever between the kurds in the beginning of 21 century and zoroastranism, not just this even in the time of Islam domination and after that when the kurdish nationalism emerged in 20th century, the relation between being kurd and zoraostranism either is totally absent , or if it had engaged a few intellectuals or a tiny religious group from political, intellectual or cultural point of views did not bear any importance......
I will try to translate some other sections of this interview in future.
