|You Can Feel The Frustration Pouring Out of a Kurdish Leader On the WH’s Handling of ISIS|
Since ISIS rose to power in Syria and Iraq, hundreds of thousands of outgunned Kurds have
left everything they have to escape its brutality.
Only a few weeks ago, thousands of Kurds were facing genocide in the Syrian city of Kobane as the Islamic State had them surrounded on three fronts.
While the U.S. has provided support with airstrikes, ISIS is still raping and pillaging Kurdish villages, leaving its blood-stained boot print wherever they march.
IJReview had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Sherkoh Abbas, chairman of the Kurdistan National Assembly of Syria
about the crisis the Kurds are facing, and how the current administration is handling it. Here were his three main points from our conversation.
1. What the Kurds want.
2. How the Obama administration is on the wrong track.
3. Why the Kurds should be supported in their efforts.
As the battle against the Islamic State continues to rage, political leaders like Abbas help us understand the bigger picture and better long-term strategies dealing with the ISIS threat.
