The year was 1961 the Kurdish people revolted under the leadership of Mullah Mustafa Barzani. The first casualties were from the Jaff people, he was brother of Koaxai Ishmael Talin from Dukan region. Mullah Mustafa promised us Kurds an independent country and democratic systems under the rule of law. He was exiled for thirteen years before coming back to Kurdistan. They wrote books about how hard it was to be away from family and relative for thirteen long years. I am personally now exiled for thirty three years and most of the Kurds are more or less the same as mine. Thanks to Mr. Massoud Barzani and Mr. Jalal Talabani, entire Kurdish populations want to get out of the country.
Mullah Mustafa was very assured about any Kurds defected to join the Iraqi Governments or any other governments in the regions; he called them "Homo". That was the insult for people in the region. It is not like western society which does not make any sense. He was always calling Abraham Ahmed and Jalal Talabani a homo because they joined enemies of Kurdish people.
Mullah Mustafa inherited the leadership from his brother Sheik Ahmed Barzani, whom he inherited from Sheik Abdul Salam Barzani. The Barzani families were disciple of Mawalan Khalid Naqshbandi Sufi Sheikh from Jaff people. The Barzani Sufi Sheikh worked as the preacher of Sufi sect of Islam. The idea of Sufism brought in by Mawalan Khalid Naqshbandi from India. The Barzani Sufi Sheikh started with preaching in small villages initially. The people from four large Kurdish tribes who became their followers joined them in Sufism. Initially they were very nice to people with their teaching and guidance. Bit by bit they took over the lives of populations. They controlled the people and took away the power of tribal leaders. The largest tribe to join them were the Sherwani (Barzani) tribe. The Sherwani tribe leader was Hamma Agah Sherwani, I had family relationship with one of his sons, and I met him when he was under house arrest.
Hamma Agah Sherwani explained to me how Barzani family took over their lives. He said the families were very poor, we helped them financially. In time they became rich and established military forces from Sufi members. They expect marry any girl of their choice, but they do not want others to marry their daughters. His problem started when one of Mullah Mustafa's daughters fell in love with Hamma Agah Sherwani's son. That adventure landed them a massacre by Massoud Barzani; he killed most of their males. After many years he paid their children money for their fathers loss. The Barzani Sheiks have cousins to marry each other generation after generation. They think of themselves to be holy or untouchable people in Kurdistan. They think of themselves to be above the people in Kurdistan. Incidentally which bring me to other families in that region; they are called Deazai tribal chiefs. One of their doctors invited me to his house and I meet his handicaped daughter, he told me this is the product of our stupid system. The genetic pool is shrinking which will produce retard and handicap children according to the doctor.
The question is, do you think that Massoud Barzani insane, or not? If it is not then why he is doing this to his own family and Kurdish people?
Mullah Mustafa Barzani had few sons. Among his son he picks two of them by name of Massoud and Idris Barzani to lead the Kurdish people. The older ones defected and joined Saddam Hussein's Government with 8000 Barzani Sufi members. Massoud and Idris bring in the Iranian military to Iraq which generated anger from Saddam Hussein, killed 8000 Barzani including Massoud brothers. It is just like Mr. Jalal Talabani and his assistant Mr. Newsherawin Mustafa to bring in Iranian forces on purpose through the Jaff regions to give Saddam Hussein an excuse to kill Jaff people because both men above all have a hatred toward Jaff people and they are not consider Jaff people to be human being. They call this policy anti-tribalism. They do not care that tribes are human being too.
Today in Kurdistan, with the help of US Forces, both Barzani and Talabani family control the region. Large numbers of Kurds in that region are migrating to Europe. Many of them are drowning in the sea between Turkey and Greece, including my own sister with her baby girl and a large group of Kurds. Life is harder for the people under Barzani and Talabani than Saddam Hussein.
The questions are why Mullah Mustafa picks this half Barzani to replace him. He did know how Zebari- aga is. Today the people Mullah Mustafa supposedly fought to free are suffering in the hand of his half Zebari children and grandchildren; including those who are suffering are the sons of Sheik Abdul Salam Barzani and other members of his own family. Did Mullah Mustafa Barzani make a mistake by picking his half Zebari son to replace him or not?
In conclusion, only Barzani Sheik family members and Kurdish people will know the answer. They do need to speak out now before it is too late, otherwise we will have Zebari Massoud as king of the regions. He is attempting to build us a system like Saudi Arabia, governed by one family. He has to be stopped now.
A Region and a Superpower: A Special Relationship

This past week's visit by Masoud Barzani, President of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, to the United States underscored the special relationship that has developed between the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and the United States. President Barzani and his delegation were not only received in the Oval Office by President Obama, but also spent five days being shuttled around D.C. to meetings within the highest echelons of the U.S. political system. The meetings included a lunch with Vice President Joe Biden and a meeting in the U.S. Capitol Building with the congressional leaders hosted by Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.
