Arab and Kurdish experts: Arab-Kurdish alliance establishment is an imperative

Arab experts and analysts stressed in response the need to establish an alliance between Arabs and Kurds to protect Arab and Kurdish regions from Turkish occupation and interventions by regional and western colonial powers.

The Turkish occupying state's attacks on North and East Syria and Iraq (legitimate defence zones) have escalated over the past period.

Hardly a day goes by without a Turkish attack on North and East Syria, most recently the violent bombing of the Turkish occupation army on Tuesday (16 August) on the centre of Kobani city, its countryside and the outskirts of Jazira and Afrin, resulting in martyrs and injuries.

Joint Military Force

The head of the Gulf Center for Iranian Studies, Sharif Abdul Hamid, considers it important to establish an Arab-Kurdish alliance, "especially after the intensification of Turkish and Iranian interventions in the region, and the efforts of both Tehran and Ankara to control the capabilities of the peoples of their neighbouring countries, and even Turkey's systematic military attacks against Iraq and Syria."

"I believe that the establishment of an Arab-Kurdish alliance will reflect on the stability of the region, and will ensure that Turkey does not expand into Arab territory, on the one hand, and on the other hand, that any operations in the north of Syria are halted, and that violations of Iraqi sovereignty also cease."

According to the Egyptian expert, Kurds should be part of the Arab national security system, not only to confront Turkey and Iran in particular, but also to confront the aspirations of all the interdependent forces in the entire Arab world, so that Kurds are not left prey to the aspirations of both Tehran and Ankara, and do not become a tool in Israel's occupation to circumvent Arab.

Although Arab-Kurdish relations were deeply rooted in history, the Arabs did not pay attention to the importance of addressing those relations and of working to support them, but not just direct dialogues between the parties, so that they could properly understand each other, in order to restore the historic alliance between the two sides.

Abdul Hamid stressed that the Arab League could adopt the idea of the Arab-Kurdish Alliance project, with the support of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States, by establishing a joint military force of Arab and Kurdish forces as a trained force to perform Self-Defence missions, reversing aggression and carrying out peace missions in humanitarian relief situations, and other tasks that could be carried out by this military alliance.

Common interest

In her turn, PHD. Fernaz Attiya, Political Science, said that a Kurdish-Arab coalition was required not only for the crises in the Arab region but also for the plight of the Middle East.

She noted to ANHA’s agency that, if realistically, this alliance would be a tool for stopping Western deals, expansions and violations of Arab States' territories and Kurdish areas. It would also stand in the way of Turkish ambitions in Arab States and Kurdish regions, making the coalition's establishment a common Arab-Kurdish interest.

Kurds lived next to Arabs in countries such as Syria and Iraq, whose sovereignty was violated by Turkey day and night. Western conspiracies with Turkey did not stop and allowed them to intervene in those countries and loot and occupy their wealth without regard for Arabs or Kurds.

She stressed that the establishment of an Arab-Kurdish alliance has become an imperative imposed by political, security and geographical realities as well as water security and noting that the existence of such an alliance between Arabs and Kurds may give the parties the right to defend their water security, especially after the State of Turkey established dams on Tigris and Euphrates, which deprived both Kurds and Arabs in Syria and Iraq of their water rights and led to a major drought crisis in the two States, the Arabs and the Kurds being its biggest victims.

Fernaz Attiya concluded by stressing that the interest of Arabs and Kurds is one, defending these territories, which have been gathering them since the beginning of history, and that the Arabs must realize that the Kurds are not enemies but seek to live peacefully in their areas, do not seek to divide Arabs or occupy their lands, as Turkey has sought to defame them in Arab circles.

Ensuring Survival

The Syrian Kurdish scholar and political analyst Ahmad Sheikho considered that the importance of common positions and the Kurdish-Arab alliance, as well as the alliances of the peoples of the region, came under the threat and threat of the colonial "New Ottoman" project, which the present Turkish authority seeks to implement and target the Kurdish and Arab peoples and their geography.

"Given Turkey's presence within the NATO system and the formation of the Turkish State is one of the most important functional tools of the policies and strategies of the global hegemony system that divided and looted the region," Sheikho told ANHA’s agency. as well as exploiting the Islamic religion, it must continue to strengthen the home front and peoples' self-reliance and establishment strong alliances based on respect and common understanding of fears and challenges, as well as embrace the common democratic will of the peoples. one of the most important factors and subjective actions of the region capable of meeting various internal and external challenges, including the Turkish State's interventions in the affairs of Arab States and its occupation of Kurdish areas.”

The Arab and Kurdish peoples have historic stations and co-existence that have had important results in protecting the region's unity, free will, the interests of its peoples and the development of its economy, especially in the light of the Islamic civilization and culture that absorbed all the peoples of the region and their diverse and diverse cultures.

In the midst of his speech, the researcher stressed that under "The threat of terrorism", its proliferation, Turkish support for it, securing all its necessities, security priorities, stabilization and peace in the States of the region and with Turkey's increasing occupation of areas in northern Syria and northern Iraq and its desire and action to expand its occupation as well as its incursion and interference in Arab States and peoples in addition to Turkey's unique war of genocide against the Kurds as a preliminary and preparatory stage for the New Ottoman Project, It is imperative and urgent for the Arab people as well as Arab Powers and States to meet and align themselves with the Kurdish people and democratic Kurdish forces and stand together against Turkish colonial attacks, attacks and projects.

According to Sheikho, one of the most examples of the importance of the outcome of the Democratic Peoples' Alliance and Unity is the model and system of Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria AANES and the SDF, which has been able to free millions of Arabs, Kurds and other peoples and components of Syria from ISIS and al-Qaida "terrorism", as well as protecting and defending this model and this joint Kurdish-Arab bloc and its democratic coalition from the region and the world, as well as protecting Syria's unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The researcher Ahmed Sheikho concluded by stressing that the Kurdish-Arab Alliance, in all its forms and democratic political and military types, is able to liberate the occupied areas of Afrin, Idlib, Ras al-Ain, Tal Abyad and Bab, as well as liberate the occupied areas of the Southern Kurdistan region and expel the Turkish occupier from them, as well as well as pressure on Turkey to stop its interventions in Arab States. Because today it is the Kurdish cause and its active and resistant forces that constitute the impediment to further expansion and Turkish occupation in Arab countries. If joint economic, military, security and cultural mechanisms are established in the Kurdish-Arab alliance, then Turkey will not be able to implement its project. "New Ottoman" in the region will face great challenges and great forces pressured by military, economic and political pressure, which will be forced to retreat, withdraw and even change their policies and accept the resolution of the just Kurdish issue and respect for the sovereignty, integrity and territorial integrity of the Arab States.
