For the purpose of this article I will refer to the So-called Islamic state, as Daesh. I do not believe that they have the right to be called Islamic and also, they hate being called Daesh. It is the term used to call the so-called islamic state in Arabic also, the so-called Islamic State has threatened to cut out the tongues of anyone it hears using the term.
Before I get into the Title of my article, let me give a short summary of the ongoing Kurdish-Turkish conflict.
The Kurdish people were against Ottoman empire for years prior to Turkey’s independence. Now since Turkey gained its independence, the Kurdish people want theres too because Kurdish people do not have the same rights in Turkey. Since the late 1970’s, the Kurdish people have wanted to have independence over their land as well and to be known as Kurdistan. I am not taking sides, just stating the little I know about this. I am sure there is more to it but I am only giving you a short synopsis.
BUT when it all comes down to it everyone hates Daesh more than anything.
US state department spokesman John Kirby said, “We don’t want to see them fighting each other, we want to see everybody in the coalition… focus our efforts on Daesh.”
For now, the Kurdish people and the Turkish government have agreed to fight in the coalition against Daesh with a ceasefire. Unfortunately, since Turkey sees the Kurdish militia as terrorists, it is presumed the Kurds and Turks will be back against each other after the coalition.
