The mainstream news is filled with stories about the horrors committed by the Islamic State (IS) in Syria and Iraq, and how the US ruling class and their state want to stop this for humanitarian reasons. But what has not been widely covered in the corporate media is why the IS came to exist; the real reasons for the US state’s new round of intervention in the Middle East; and how the US wants to isolate and likely destroy the only two forces that have been effective in fighting the IS: the Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK) and the People’s Protection Units (YPG).

This article highlights how the US state created the conditions in the Middle East in which a right-wing reactionary force like the Islamic State (formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham) could emerge. Along with this – and central to the article – it discusses how the US state is refusing to back the only two effective forces that are fighting the Islamic State: the Kurdish Workers’ Party and the People’s Protection Units. Indeed, this article is also written to express solidarity with the People’s Protection Units that are currently fighting a key battle against the Islamic State to hold onto the city of Kobani in Syria.

Public Tev-Dem meeting in Qamishli to discuss attacks by al-Nusra

What you read below is the experience of my visit, for a couple of weeks in May this year, 2014, to North East of Syria or Syrian Kurdistan (West of Kurdistan) with a close friend of mine. Throughout the visit we had the total freedom and opportunity to see and speak to whoever we wanted to. This includes women, men, youth, and the political parties.

There are over 20 parties from Kurdish to Christian, of which some are in the Democratic Self Administration (DSA) or Democratic Self Management (DSM) of the region of Al Jazera. Al Jazera is one of three regions, (cantons) of West Kurdistan. We also met the Kurdish and Christian political parties who are not in the DSA or DSM. In addition, we met the top people from the Democratic Self Administration (DSM), members of the different committees, local groups and communes as well as businesspeople, shopkeepers, workers, people in the market and people who were just walking in the street.

Operation "Protective Edge". Its Hebrew name translates as "Mighty Cliff"

The main confrontation between the Israeli ruling capitalist elite and the Palestinian working people which have continued forcefully over the last few weeks forms part of ongoing efforts by Israel to transfer them out of Palestine, or at least pressure them into voluntary transfer.

The reason for the eruption of the intense confrontation of recent weeks is the recent intensification of international pressure exerted on Israel to withdraw from the territories occupied in the 1967 war. Most of its efforts are to relieve this pressure, and to overcome the contribution of the recent agreement between the West Bank (partly) ruling elite and the Hamas ruling elite of the Gaza Strip.

Hace tiempo que se va oyendo hablar sobre el Confederalismo Democrático en el Kurdistán. Se trata de una idea político-social aplicada al contexto de Oriente Medio que no busca imponer estados-nación independientes. Nos pusimos en contacto con el blog de Solidaridad Kurdistán para comprender mejor este viraje histórico de un movimiento de liberación nacional con más de 30 años a sus espaldas. En esta entrevista se desarrollan las claves sobre esta idea anti-estatista que se basa en parte en las ideas de Murray Bookchin sobre la Ecología Social y el Municipalismo Libertario.
La entrevista es la primera parte de una entrevista mucho más larga que nos pondrá al día de la (compleja) situación del pueblo kurdo en sus diferentes conflictos en los que está implicado a la vez. La próxima entrevista será publicada dentro de varias semanas.
