September 22, 2014 – “You can lead them to water, but you can’t make them drink.” After having its “head” dunked in the truth of Islamism, the Obama Administration seems to prefer to drown in its failed anti-Bush pacifism. Everyone knows the most reliably pro-American military in the Syria-Iraq region is the Peshmerga, yet American arms have not been provided to these Kurds, nor has their justified nationalist aspiration been acknowledged, let alone endorsed.
A member of Iraqi ruling State of Law Coalition said the Iraqi new Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi is to show green light to Kurds in the state to export oil within a joint commission.

Hugh Naylor - September 22, 2014 – THE NATIONAL – ERBIL // Islamist politicians in Iraqi Kurdistan say they are under fire from both sides as the region fights off an offensive by ISIL militants. Navigating Islamist politics in Kurdistan has always been a struggle, but Soran Omar and his fellow Islamists in the region’s parliament say it has become even harder since the radical Sunni group overran vast tracts of Iraq in June. Local media, rivals from secular-nationalist parties and ordinary citizens accuse them of being terrorist sympathisers and insufficiently pro-Kurdish.

A Demand For Action representative Suzan Younan’s report from Iraq / #DemandForAction – #SafeHavenNow
“We arrived into Erbil on Sept 14th, we had a sense of what we would witness, but nothing comes close to the devastation that is going on. The current ethnic cleansing of the indigenous people of Iraq is not only happening by ISIS, but our own Arab and Kurd neighbors who so easily sold us out and fled their checkpoints.
Our first stop was at the headquarters of Assyrian Aid Society (AAS), where we were debriefed on the current situation. I am happy to report all of our people now have been taken in. Literally every hall, church, cultural center, vacant homes, dormitories, stores, schools, have been switched into homes for our people. AAS Iraq have been able to register majority of them. Their work is 24 hours 7 days a week. They are taking care of every problem as much as they can. Since ISIS entered Iraq, 600,000 total people have been displaced into Dohuk, Erbil and neighboring villages. They are everywhere you look. Everywhere. Below is a list of the towns and the number of Assyrians that have fled:
