Possible government cover-up's, media blackout's, Princess Diana, MI5, politics and an ordinary woman right in the heart of it. Jeffrey Archer is the only name people connect to Kurdish Relief, as... More > he was given a peerage based on a concert named The Simple Truth, claiming responsibility for raising £57 million. This proved to be just that, a claim. Behind the scenes, British Aid for the Kurds (BAFK) were the largest independent Relief Aid organisation at the time, but who were they? Their work went unreported with achievements hidden. Raising approximately £200 million worth of relief aid, they were deemed unimportant. John Major’s government instead pushed Jeffrey Archer as the hero of the hour instead– why? BAFK’s appeal was launched almost a month before Archer’s. Why was he given a life peerage for one of the smallest relief aid efforts for the Kurds? Why was there not room for both appeals? The story starts with Parcels for the Gulf. Read the facts and decide for yourselves.< Less

Imagine starting your day just like any other, then because of making a couple of telephone calls, by evening find yourself on television, radio and the front page of newspapers. That is what... More > happened to me in 1991 and for the next few months, life would not be the same. Picking up the telephone seemed an easy and innocent thing to do, yet that day, it threw me into a life of political intrigue and mystery. Government lies, meeting Princess Diana, going to Buckingham Palace, having dealings with government ministers, being talked about in Parliament for months and so much more is talked of in these pages. What you read will probably astound you. Living through it was satisfying, frustrating, exhilarating, exhausting, emotional, funny and scary. This is a true story the government never wanted you to hear. Those who have already seen it are astounded and angry at what they have discovered - that our government seemed to have been hiding everything to do with what happened – and still seem to be.< Less

عقل سیاسی ایران و هویت خواهی... More > کوردها زکریا(هێرش) قادری Contrary to the common belief but misguided, Iranian and orientalist scholars,who define the Kurds as part of Iranian civilization and culture, this book indicates that the Kurds are not Iranians. This book shed light on how the political strata of Iran with all its components, such as state, geography, religion, mythology, language, and symbol have been developed with the negation of Kurds. While Kurds are native to the land, but it was immigrant Persians who conquered the land with subjugation and war with the Medes.After defeating the Medes and conquering the land of Medes, the state, government and empire were formed to preserve its subjugation and maintain its domination over the Medes, and the Persian empire has been tool of ethnic domination of Persian over Medes. The Persian religion of Zarathustra, hierarchical religion which supports state, was essentially in opposition to the earthly religion of Mithra.< Less

Today, disputes over the territorial delineation of the KRG remain a source of tension, while the discovery of significant reserves of oil and gas within and straddling the borders of the KRG has raised the stakes.
