Assyrians, Syriacs and Chaldeans call on KDP: Stop!

Mesopotamia Freedom Party (MOP) issued a statement in the name of the Assyrian, Syriac and Chaldean peoples to commemorate KCK General Presidential Council Member Diyar Xerib who lost his life in a Turkish airstrike.

MOP issued a written statement and condemned the attack on July 5, as well as the mindset that allowed a foundation for it.

The statement said, “As the MOP, we remember Comrade Diyar Xerib, the shoreshger (revolutionary), socialist and friend to the peoples, with respect and gratitude. We condemn their murder and the mindset that allowed for it.”

The statement continued: “The genocidal Turkish state is founded on the 1915 genocide, and has approached all peoples in the region with tyranny ever since. For almost half a century, they have approached the Kurdistan Freedom Movement, the Kurdish people, their organizations and individuals who have a dignified stance and their leaders in a genocidal manner. The genocidal Turkish state and the fascist  government that represents it were defeated on June 7, 2015 under the lead of the HDP, they were defeated by YPG, YPJ and other popular forces in Kobane together with ISIS, and these defeats sparked a more fascist, more aggressive and more expansionist policy for them.


As a result of this expanionist policy, they have turned to attack any and all democratic gains by the Kurdish people who have been leading democracy. The Turkish state didn’t want to live with the Armenian, Pontiac/Greek, Jewish or Assyrian/Syirac/Chaldean peoples under dignity, peace and equality in 1915. Today they don’t want to live with those who represent the Kurdish people with a dignified will. That is why they choose the collaborationists, the fallen and the undignified. These collaborationist relationships go back to the 1071 Malazgirt wars, then the Ottoman Idrisi Bitlisi, the Hamidiye Brigades of 1915 and the village guards of today. These people have tried to soil the essence of the Kurdish nation, and always stood with tyranny against the peoples they live with. Today looking at the KDP’s relationship with the genocidal Turkish state, it is clear that they continue this wrongful flow of history and open up the lands of Southern Mesopotamia/Kurdistan for invasions. With this approach, they aim to trample the dignity of the Kurdish people, the peoples of the region and those who defend the democratic mindset. This is unacceptable and goes against political ethics. Today they attacked Comrade Diyar Xerib in treason as they considered him the enemy with his stand against the invasion of Southern Kurdistan, his mind, his ethics and his democratic stance, killing him and his comrades.

They have become history in the bussom of the peoples, but the collaborationists have dug themselves deeper in the swamp of treason.


This is a message from the invading fascist Turkish state and its conservative and regressive collaboration partner KDP to the leading revolutionary cadres of the Kurdish people in the person of Diyar Xerib. Any and all people who stand for democracy, freedom, equality and humanity must stand against this mindset in a dignified stance against the genocidal Turkish state’s invasions.

As the MOP we urge KDP to stop their collaboration with Turkish state invasion policies, and to achieve a national democratic union with the Kurdish people. The Kurdish people achieving a national democratic will is possible through not partnerships with the genocidal Turkish state mindset but a national democratic union through the Kurdish people’s political bodies.”
