This little angel made a huge impression today for her audition in Hollands Got Talent with her lovely song. I know her for a while, she wrote her own song and you’ll find a bunch of stuff on her Youtube channel. Her name is Naaz, she’s 16 years old and she is from Kurdistan!

The Four Officers (Chwar Afsarakan), men from South Kurdistan who left for Mahabad to help in the fight for the Republic alongside Qazi Muhammad. In 1948 they were returned to Slemani where the King of Iraq had them executed for treason, these were their final statements made to crowds of onlookers before there deaths in Bardarki Saray, Slemani.
Muhammad Qudsi: “I have been nourished by my mothers milk with love for the homeland. This rope, a so-called symbol of punishment, that has fallen to me as the price of my attachment to the homeland is very dear to me. It is the rope that will carve my name into the hearts of my compatriots and the memory of my nation, who have me, instead of father and mother. Death is a great honor under these circumstances. As for you, executioners, do not take too much pleasure in my death, because tomorrow you will be crushed by shame and disgrace.”
Khairullah Abdulkarim “My mother was from Mosul and my father was a Kurd. I was orphaned when I was very young. I fought alongside my uncles for the liberation of the homeland and for freedom for the Kurds. In doing so, I followed my heart, and I hope to have shown myself worthy of the memory of my father and deserving of my homeland. Death to our enemies, and long live Kurdistan!”
Mustafa Khoshnaw “Executioners, tell your masters that my blood will be avenged. I do not fear your power; it is that power which will elevate me to a Martyred Hero of Kurdistan… . I leave three young children behind me — they will learn that I died for the homeland, and I hope once grown up they will be inspired in their life by my example.”
Izzat Abdulaziz “The tree of liberty will be watered by my blood and that of my comrades. I am hopeful that it will bloom soon and provide liberty and happiness to the homeland. Kill the imperialists and their despicable helpers.”
