The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) raised on Monday its black Islamic flags on a building on the eastern side of Kobane. The ISIS militants have been fighting Kurdish forces for three weeks before entering Kobane today.

Today Kurdish supporters blasted Barack Obama for sitting back and allowing Kobane to fall to ISIS.


“Obama abandoned his Kurdish allies at #Kobane. But, wasn’t that expected?”

The Rudaw Kurdish News Service blasted Obama for allowing Kobane to fall.

Kurdish-American campaigners are pressuring the US Government to better support embattled Syrian Kurds in Kobane, where Islamic State (IS) fighters are making gains against the holdouts.

Kurdish-Americans across the US have appealed to Senators to boost support for Syrian Kurds who are defending Kobane – a Kurdish town near the Syria-Turkey border – from IS, the sectarian Sunni militia that is also known as ISIS and ISIL.

“Kobane has been surrounded for almost two weeks; the latest reports indicate that the city is under heavy bombardment and parts of the city may have fallen,” says a campaign letter that has circulated among hundreds of Kurdish-Americans.

“If democratic nations fail to provide immediate military support to Kurdish fighters, Kobane will suffer the same tragic fate as Shingal,” it adds, referring to the massacres of Christian minorities in Iraq this summer.


“Obama to let ISIS slaughter Syrian Kurds in Kobane.”
Erdogan has Obama in a headlock.


“I support Obama but letting these awesome, secular and brave kurds face ISIS alone in Kobane is inexcusable!”
