After antoganizing Kurds in Rojhilat, Barzani is hostile to them in Rojava

After Mulla Mustafa ended the armed struggle, he headed with his people and leaders to Iran, where Shah Muhammad Reza Pahlavi had already prepared a hundred homes for them in Karj region close to Iran.

Since that time, Barzani has become a plaything at the hand of the Iranian "SAVAK" intelligence machine, as Iran used him in his contradictions with Iraq, as well as using him to strike its Kurdish opponents from the organizations and movements of East Kurdistan (Rojhilat), that is, Iran was hunting two birds with one stone, and there are documents and convincing proofs that prove this thing.

Regarding this issue, the Kurdish politician Mahmoud Othman says: "Due to the short-sightedness of Barzani's political leadership, its own interests and its lack of confidence in the national spirit and the Kurdish people's self-capabilities, it handed over a number of patriots and militants in East Kurdistan to the Iranian authorities and the other section was martyred by this leadership, including the Secretary of Kurdistan Democratic Party - Iran (Suleiman Maeeni).

Kamiran Badrakhan Ali went to Israel in 1963, and met (Ben Gerion and Golda), Chief of Staff Tzfi Zamir and the Head of Intelligence, and he conveyed the message of the Iranian Shah about the Kurds in Iraq, in which he said: "We want the flame of the Kurdish rebellion to remain constantly lighting in Iraq, provided that the flames of this fire is not raised."

Israel also shared this opinion. On its part, in order to ensure its security, it was trying to use Barzani to disperse and weaken the front of its Arab enemies, and from that time Barzani entered under the absolute tutelage of Iran.

The struggle of Kurdish revolutionary groups and their activities against Iran in addition to the demand for their rights was a concern of Barzani who did not want Iran to be angry with him, fearing that it would cut off charity extended to him, and therefore Barzani gave promises to the Iranians that he would keep these organizations under his control and influence them in exchange for Iran's generosity for their families, especially the leaders among them and the leader of the movement himself.

 In this regard, Shalomo Nakdimon, the Israeli consultant says in his book (Mossad in Iraq and the Neighboring Countries) on the Barzani movement: "Shah had fears that Barzani would sympathize with these movements and turn against him." Shalomo continues in his speech saying: "A high-ranking Israeli official had said: "I made a great effort to convince the Shah that Barzani would not stand with these movements against his regime and that he alone (i.e Barzani) could guarantee the Iranian interests with Iraq."

Barzani did not favor the revolutionary movements to develop, and highlights the armed struggle not only in East Kurdistan, but in other parts as well because this movement viewed itself as the only representative of the Kurds in the four parts of Kurdistan, and it was the first and last decision maker in everything happened in Kurdistan and the Kurdish issue in general.

The Kurdistan Democratic Party - Iran says in its brochure (Betrayal of the Provisional Leadership of Kurdish Nationalism): "Idris Barzani said at one point in a meeting of the North Jash: Only the Barzani family has the right to demand autonomy for the Kurds in what part, and no party has the right to ask for autonomy, even if it requests, we will prevent it."

Barzani's movement has sought to abort the revolutionary spirit in the Kurdish movements and national figures throughout Kurdistan, and has entered the service of the occupied countries of Kurdistan and global hegemony to gain financial benefits and family interests. It always stands agaisnt the Kurdish unity, prevents its progress, implements regional and international agendas and is hostile to the hopes and aspirations of the Kurdish people.

Khder Marsaneh, the leader of the Democratic Party - Iran said in his book (Aoynakani Rastikan): "The beginnings of the establishment of the Barzani revolution's relations with the Iranian Shah's regime and its intelligence (SAVAK) and the US CIA date back to 1966s, and that the Iraqi Democratic Party's diplomatic relations with Iranian intelligence (SAVAK) and the American CIA were not serving the interest of the Kurdish people, but rather were securing the interests of both countries.

After the collapse of the Shah's authority, and because of the positions adopted by the Barzani movement in support of the Iranian Shah and its standing against the Kurdish political movements at the time of the Iranian revolution, life narrowed for the Barzani family.

After the fall of the Shah in 1979, the Kurdish areas in East Kurdistan came out from the control of the Iranian state, and these areas began to be managed administratively and economically by the region's residents and parties, but due to the lack of experiences and their lack of preparation in advance, they decided to resort to Tehran to discuss the situation and find solutions together.

With the years 1982-1983, Serdasht city and most of the villages and cities were under the control of the Kurds. Mahabad has remained for several months and Bokan for more than two years at the hands of the Kurds, but the regime did not recognize the rights of the Kurds, and resorted to exercise force and violence against them. As a result, fierce battles took place between the two parties. For its part, the regime used all kinds of weapons it had, but without achieving any significant results. The commander in chief of the army mentioned the details of what happened and their inability to control these areas for Imam Khomeini.

Khomeini, for his part, thought carefully about this dilemma and how to get out of it, and after holding several meetings to end this rebellion, he reached a decision that the only way was to assign the Barzanian family and its militias to accomplish this task. Indeed, the state's old officials who were at the head of power at the time of the Shah and who had links with this family moved and provided detailed information about it and its relationship with the Shah's regime, its weaknesses (finance), and every big and small about its roots and life, and they came to the conviction that they can use this family, rely on it and put it at their service to implement their agenda in exchange for some gifts and sums of money.

In the first meeting between Khomeini and the Barzanian family, Khomeini said: "You are not here as guests, Iran is your homeland, Islam unites us, there is no distinction between Persians and Kurds. We tried a lot with our Kurdish brothers (Democratic Party - Iran and the Komala Party) to reach a solution, but both parties receive assistance from Saddam Hussein and attack us, and they are the reason for the coldness of our relations with you."

After Khomeini granted donations which included monetary amounts to the brothers Idris Barzani and Masoud Barzani, that made the two brothers quickly kiss Khomeini's hand, and Khomeini in turn took his hand on their heads saying to them: "You have become my sons, and I will pray for you both with charity."

Khomeini instructed that all the needs and requirements of the Barzani family be met, and he appointed some specialists to draw up plans to restore control of the Kurdish areas outside the control of the state as soon as possible with the brothers Idris and Masoud Barzani.

Khder Marsaneh, the leader of the Democratic Party – Iran  said earlier in his book (Aoynakani Rastikan) about that relationship: "Iran was giving money and logistical materials to the Barzani revolution, but after this assistance, the Kurds would taste bitterness one day with the receipt of food, logistical materials, RBG weapons, cannons and Katyusha ... Of course, receiving this potential from the Iranian regime was undoubtedly not an easy thing because Iran was asking for its cost, and the South Kurdistan revolution had to meet Iran's demands in exchange for everything it received, and then this method took an official turn inside the South revolution, and it became a culture."

Unfortunately, the members of the Democratic Party - Iran were the victims of this policy based on interests, and the treaty signed between the leader of the movement and the Iranian regime. The Barzani family and its militias helped the Iranian army to cleanse the Kurdish areas of the groups affiliated with the KDP and Komala, and subject them to the sovereignty of the Iranian state again in the years 1981-1982 after losing control of them during the Iranian people's revolution in 1979.

Iranian Officer Saeedian, the Head of Iranian intelligence in Urmia said about the services provided by Barzani to Iran: "The one who rebelled yesterday is now in our service, a day will come when we will appoint him as governor of Kirkuk."

In this regard, the Member of the Kurdistan Workers Party's (PKK) Presidential Committee, Jamil Bayek, says: "Barzani used to hand over patriotic people from East Kurdistan to the Iranian authorities constantly, and revolutionaries such as Suleiman Maeeni, the Secretary (KDP - Iran) and the Central Member Mulla Awara, as Barzani killed them and delivered their corpses to Iran which in turn sent them behind the car and went through the streets and villages to humiliate their supporters."

 Barzani used to see the Iranian Kurdistan Democratic Party as his own, and he did not want any of the organizations or parties to compete with him for leadership. When the Iraqi Kurdistan Democratic Party was fighting the Kurdistan Democratic Party - Iran, it was not because there were mistakes in terms of method, or that it was not patriotic, or that it was in line treason, but to give the following message: "None of the movements precede him in leadership over Kurdistan." The Barzani family and its militias caused the Kurdish Democratic Party - Iran expelling from Iran and not the Iranian army. This fact is known to everyone.

In addition, Idris Barzani used the Jashes and organized them to strike the Kurds there, and with this terrible act, they wronged our people in East Kurdistan, what they did was not done by the Iranian Shah or the Iranian Islamic regime against the Kurdish people in this part.

According to the treaty signed between the brothers and the Iranians, roles and jobs were divided between the military experts affiliated with the mullahs' regime and the two brothers Idris and Masoud who pledged to the Iranians to cleanse East Kurdistan of the militants and weapons at the hands of both parties (Kurdistan Democratic Party - Iran and Komala).

For its part, the Iranian regime (the Ministry of Defense, Intelligence and the Revolutionary Guard) provided all the capabilities to serve the Barzanian family to finish the mission that was assigned to it, and according to the information we obtained, it allocated monthly salaries at that time or the equivalent of two salaries, one of which in public and the second given in secret. The scheme drawn up on paper by the Iranian regime and the Barzani family was implemented on the ground, which led to widespread angry reactions and public denunciations in East Kurdistan and South Kurdistan against this heinous act.

In order to change and apply this equation, a plan had to be drawn up, and then the master plan had to be started.

David McDowall also confirmed this in his book (Modern History of the Kurds) and said: "In the end, the Iranian regime chose the Barzani forces to eliminate the Kurdistan Democratic Party - Iran in the regions that speak the Kurmanji (Kurdish) dialect adjacent to the borders and the important centers in East Kurdistan with a Sunni majority united in language and their lands subjected to the control of the central government.

The Barzanis were complicit with the Islamic Republic just as they were complicit in the past with Shah Muhammad Reza Pahlavi. Most of these Aghas tried to stand outside this war, and their demand was to remain somewhat independent with the authority in Tehran, but without a doubt they were not on the side of fighting the Kurds, and some of the clans' chiefs such as Sinar, the Head of the Mamendi al-Shikaki tribe who had a long patriotism was not along with Barzani, and they supported the Kurdistan Democratic Party - Iran, so when Mullah Mustafa was fighting the Revolutionary Committee of the Kurdistan Democratic Party - Iran in 1967, he arrested him and handed him over to the Iranian authorities.

In Rojava, Barzani coordinated with the Turkish state, imposing the siege and digging trenches along its borders with Rojava, preventing the entry of medical teams and necessary medicines, even the wounded to strike and suffocate the experience of the Democratic Autonomous Administration and thwart it, and even incite the people through a systematic ideological war, barbaric media campaigns in addition to spreading false news through its media outlets, conducting psychological warfare to delude people that the situation was heading towards an unknown fate, and all places were devastated and destroyed to mislead people and urge them to migrate and leave the country although Rojava was one of the most secure and stable places compared to the rest of Syria.

The media of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) tried hard to sow chaos, destabilization, distort the image of the Autonomous Administration, and sow discord and distrust, knowing that Barzani was supposed to stand by Rojava and support it in its liberation march because the freedom of Rojava will enhance the status and strength of the Kurdistan Regional Government.

Yesterday, Barzani was hostile to the Kurds in East Kurdistan, and today he is hostile to them in West Kurdistan, and here history is repeating itself. Yesterday, Barzani colluded with Iran, and today with Turkey.

It is the second time that he antoganizes the Kurds, but this time in Rojava and Şengal. Yesterday Turkey was raising concrete walls and extending it along its borders with Rojava, and on the other side, in parallel, Masoud Barzani was digging trenches along his borders with Rojava to tell Turkey and Erdogan: "If you tell us die, we will die, and if you say live, we will live," as his father Mullah Mustafa told Shah Muhammad Reza Pahlavi when he informed him of the content of the Algiers Agreement concluded between Saddam Hussein and the Iranian Shah, and as a result Barzani ended the armed revolution and took refuge in Iran.

Mahmoud Othman, who was present at that meeting, says: "The Shah wanted to know Barzani's reaction to the Agreement, and when he spoke about its content and finished his speech he was waiting for Barzani's response." Barzani's response was brief in the following form: "We are your people, as long as you are satisfied about the Algiers Agreement and guarantee the interests of Iran which is our motherland. There is nothing to say and we are not against it. We are at your command if you tell us: "live, we will live, and if you say die, we will die." We were loyal to you and now loyal and will remain loyal in the future. We hope that your generosity will continue and you will embrace us and our cause. This was Mullah Mustafa Barzani's speech in Tehran on 12/03/1975 before Ashbatali (ending the rebellion).

Blind obedience, moving according to regional and international agendas, and running after the material family interests of Mullah Mustafa Barzani, we see these characteristics in the personality of his children, who are constantly linked to the Turkish state and its government represented by Erdogan who commits daily massacres against the Kurds and violates taboos in North, West and South Kurdistan, as it occupied Afrin, Tel Abyad and Serêkaniyê.

 Lining up with the occupying powers of Kurdistan, passing their policies and fighting your fellow countrymen is the biggest mistake committed by the Kurdish movement, rather, it is a major betrayal of a people who sacrificed tens of thousands of martyrs.

 The enemies of the Kurds are not as strong as it is believed, but what strengthens them and gives them boldness is this slavery that they always find from some. This model is the reason for the Kurds to remain slaves to Erdogan and others, and it is the reason for the dispersal of the Kurds and their suffering and the lack of success in their struggle and it is the reason for not being liberated. Creating an independent will means freedom in its own right. If Barzani had possessed this characteristic, he might not have lined up in the trench of the Kurdish enemies and would not have become a plaything at the hands of regional and international powers, implementing their agenda.

Since the beginning of the war in Syria, the Kurdish National Council has joined the racist brotherhood coalition affiliated with Turkey and its president, Erdogan, which denies the rights of the Kurds in order to divide the Kurdish ranks, in addition to coordination of groups affiliated with Barzani (ENKS) with Islamic groups and Jabhet al-Nusra, the provision of support and logistical materials to it, and when the Turkish state occupied the city of Afrin, it became clear that there were dozens of people affiliated with with ENKS who provided the Turkish MIT and his army with intelligence information about YPG' stationing points to strike them, and after the occupation of Afrin they became involved in the so-called local councils that are affiliated with Turkey in the city of Afrin and its environs.
