Masked Anti-Refugee Mob Clashes with ...
Piraeus, Greece

09 Apr 2016

Groups of masked, black-clad men and far-right activists rampaged through the streets next to the port of Piraeus on Sunday evening during a so called 'Anti-Islamization' protest.
The rally created a " pogrom atmosphere" and at the end they clashed with Greek Police and Coast Guard troops squads, while they were attempting to enter the port gates to reach and attack the refugee makeshift camp of Piraeus.
The gathering was organized by a Greek group named "LEPEN" (Patriotic Union).
"Knife in the heart of every antifa!" was heard from the side of the rally, a slogan referring directly to the murder of the antifascist rapper Pavlos Fyssas by a Golden Dawn member in 2013. At the same area 24 hours ago, during a similar so called “Anti-Islamization” Protest a cameraman was attacked by a member of the Greek Golden dawn far-right party.
Athens, Piraeus port, Greece, 10 April 2016.

Photos shot on a mobile phone show hundreds of Iraqis stuck in traffic as they attempt to flee Ramadi and the surrounding villages. ISIS militants launched a large offensive on Wednesday 15, April, and were able to seize control over the villages of Sjariyah, Albu-Ghanim and Soufiya, which had been under government control. The locals fear that the advance could reach Ramadi giving ISIS control over the capital of Anbar, Iraq’s largest province. ISIS insurgents are now about 100Km from Anbar’s Ain Al-Asad air base, where hundreds of US and coalition forces have been training Iraqi troops.

Balad, Salahuddin, Iraq

Fighters from the Saraya al-Salam Shia militia, under the command of the Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, in cooperation with Iraqi SWAT teams, build up defenses around the Shia town of Balad in the Salahuddin province, north of Baghdad. ISIS fighters have had the town surrounded for over three months. The extremist group controls the neighboring area and is attempting to advance south towards the capital Baghdad.

The video shows the army and militia fighters firing at ISIS insurgents who are positioned just 500 meters away. The militia fighters blame the government for the lack of military and financial support in the fight against ISIS insurgents.

Transcription:

(Man, Arabic) Abu Fatima: (00:52) "We are constantly being attacked from those houses, Abu Jaber, Ezz Balad, and Abu Farraj. Unfortunately, whenever we ask for help from officials or the local government they do not respond. We will remain here no matter what happens, for the sake of [the Prophet’s grandchildren, Imams] al-Hassan and al-Hussein. We asked the officials to give us tanks, or provide us with a support group so we can resist ISIS."

(Man, Arabic) Abu Ali: (01:22) "To whomever might say that our city is going to fall in their [ISIS] hands, [we say that] we are here and ISIS is there. We are outside of the city; it is about 5 km away. We are here, outside the city, protecting it."

(Man, Arabic) al-Husseini: (02:00) "All of this area gets filled with people at night, so they can monitor it. It gets filled with men from the Popular Crowd committee."

(Man, Arabic) al-Husseini: (02:27) "This is a besieged city. Almost 70% of it is besieged. Only the Baghdad-Samarra road is open while ISIS controls the rest. The Popular Crowd forces control about 23km [of the road] from al-Rawashed to Ezz Balad all the way to Tel al-Zahab. This is the brigade of Sayed Mohamad; they are all heroes. Look at this hero here. He has two injuries, one in his hand and another his leg but he refuses to quit – he wants to be a martyr. This is our faith and principle in fighting the enemy."

(Man, Arabic) Abu Ammar: (03:22) "Even if both of my arms were amputated, I would fight with my legs."

(Man, Arabic) Jaafar al-Kazem: (03:29) "We need the support of the central government, we need weapons, munitions and artillery. We also need salaries for the fighters. Why has the central government neglected us while we have been fighting for the past four months?"

(Man, Arabic) Zu al-Fokar: (03:46) "We have been fighting in this area for almost three months. We are fighting like heroes but, unfortunately, nobody is watching or listening to us. We are demanding the simplest rights, the rights of soldiers who do not have anything, even though we are not fighting for money."

Abd al-Hussein Ali:
(09:08) "We are now at entrance number three. Al-Qaeda and ISIS are less than 500 meters away from us. Hopefully, in the upcoming days we will liberate entrance four and five with God's help."

Abu Fadel:
(09:26) "These criminals are about 500 meters away with a sniper rifle aimed at us, but we will beat them."

Yezidi Minority Fear Persecution in I...
Nineveh
By rsoufi
08 Jul 2014

July 6, 2014
Doghat village, Nineveh, Iraq

Video shows the shrine of Sheikh Mohamad al-Bateni, a Yezidi temple in the Doghat village of Nineveh, north of Mosul.
Sheikh Ismail, the custodian of the shrine, performs rituals and speaks about the changing situation of the Yezidi minority in Iraq, after extremist Sunni militants took control of Mosul and vast swathes of Nineveh province.

Despite the concerns of Sheikh Ismail for the safety of all minorities in the area, Doghat is now controlled by Peshmerga forces, which he says ‘provide us with protection’. However, a video previously released by ISIS shows captured Yazidis in an ISIS prison located on the Iraqi-Syrian border. An ISIS fighter in the video states ‘the prisoners are Yazidis, they worship the Devil’.

The Yazidi religion is an ancient oriental belief mostly spread in areas of Mesopotamia. They worship Melek Taus and believe he is a proud angel who rebelled and was cast into Hell by God. After being reconciled with God, he became chief of the angels.

Transcript:

Sheikh Ismail: “The Yezidi live mostly in Baghdad. There they own shops and work. In the first attack against the Yezidi, seven people were killed. Another attack happened last year and eight people died. In the current situation they kidnap the Yezidi.”

Interviewer:
Does kidnapping happen in this village?

Sheikh Ismail: “Yes it happens in this village and in all other villages. A lot of kidnapping happens. They look at IDs and kidnap people.”

Interviewer:
Is a Yezidi person in Mosul afraid to say he is Yezidi?

Sheikh Ismail:
“Yes of course! He says he is Christian. Of course a Yezidi person fears to say he is Yezidi.

To be honest the situation is scary for the Yezidi sect, and for the Christians and for all the other minorities. They destroy our shrines, and it is a scary thing. The Yezidi sect is tolerant of all other religions but ISIS and the rebels attack the villages and say “they are Yezidi or they are Christian” and it is a scary thing, However, our area, the Christian area, is under the protection of the Peshmerga. If Section 140 is applied we are under the control of Kurdistan. Under these circumstances we are not afraid, we are under the protection of the Peshmerga and the central protection forces.”

Interviewer:
As a man of religion, are you willing to carry a weapon and fight and defend your religion and your land, if an attack happens?

Sheikh Ismail:

“I am willing to defend my village, my honour, and my shrines. Me and every person who listens to me. If, God forbid, anything happens and they want us to leave the area, we would rather die than leave. We will defend our village, our shrines, and our dignity with everything we have. We already had to back in the war between Iraq and Iran. Didn’t we defend Iraq? Didn’t the Christians defend Iraq? But you do not understand whatever the situation is, whether it’s ISIS, rebels, or the government not doing its work, Sunni or Shiite, the civilians are always afraid. The Yezidi are not emigrating now, but they are considering immigrating to foreign countries, for the sake of their future. Whoever lives in Baghdad and in those areas, definitely considers immigrating if they are able to do so”.

MALI’S DISPLACED
Mali
By Mais Istanbuli
16 Sep 2012

More than 450,000 people have left their homes since fighting broke out between Tuareg rebel forces and the Malian army earlier this year in January. According to the U.N. Refugee agency, 265,000 former residents of Timbuktu, Kidal and Gao, cities now under the occupation of Islamists linked to Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, travelled to refugee camps in Mauritania, Niger and Burkina Faso, while 185,000 more have been internally displaced.
Many of the displaced live with extended families and friends. Others live under whatever shelter they can find. The sudden influx of people is exacerbating an already rapidly deteriorating humanitarian situation as food prices continue to rise and health services decline.
They are in need of adequate shelter, food and clean water and complain that they cannot find work. Young people want to study but can’t afford private education. Light-skinned Tuaregs are fearful of being associated with the MNLA and feel discriminated against in Mali’s southern regions.
Although they miss their homes, have found the strength to rebuild some aspects of their old lives and support those struggling around them. Women with babies on their backs carry vegetables and spices to the market each day to bring in meager amounts of money. Families, often separated, keep connected to each other through phone calls. Neighbors share their mosquito netting with newly displaced on their exposed rooftop sleeping quarters.
As the rest of world focuses on the geopolitical consequences of Mali becoming the so-called new “Afghanistan” and the horrors of occupation under Islamist rule, the struggles and resistances of the displaced receive little attention.
Yet these are the people that know firsthand the reality of Mali today. These are the people that know what it is like to lose a home without the hope of return.
