In Denmark, the ongoing scandal: local student-politician, became the “Kurdish Pavlichenko” legendary sniper that destroyed many ISIL militants, deprived of passports and threatened plant. Girl looking for Islamists, declaring her the head award. How is it that the man who heroically fought for European values, had to hit on the run?
The 23-year-old Joanna Palani has become one of the most paradoxical in a long line of stories about how prosperous the children of wealthy Europeans move to the middle East, take up arms and go kill. Three years ago, a student from Denmark went voluntarily to the front in Iraq, and later moved to Syria. Fighting in the ranks of the Kurdish Peshmerga, Palani became not just successful, but an almost legendary sniper. Today on account of its about hundreds of dead terrorists. She helped to liberate the Yazidi from ISIS captivity*, but upon returning to Denmark, falls under the court and then to jail. Now her passport confiscated, and the girl faces a prison sentence for war with terrorists. For its part, the ISIS, paying tribute to the military successes Palani, announced over her head a reward of one million dollars.
“Commanders choose an open vote, but any privileges they have. All the natural resources on the territories under their control natsionaliziruyut”
“It’s a disgrace! – hot lawyer Palani Erbil Kaya. – Denmark becomes the first country in the world that will sentence volunteers who fought on the same side as the international coalition. Why don’t we punish those who fight for ISIS, and those who are struggling with it? It doesn’t make any sense!”
From a formal point of view, the Danish court was right. Even in 2015, PET (Danish intelligence service), learning about the exploits of Palani in Iraq and Syria, left it in Denmark to the court under house arrest. However, the snipers violated the terms of the subscription, briefly returning to Syria in the summer of 2016. It then automatically fall under the recently adopted law on the freezing of passports of citizens “poses a significant threat to the state.” At the same Palani was placed in a Copenhagen prison, and only the uproar on social media and the press, helped to achieve her release before trial in court.
In fact, Palani became the first Danish woman who fell under the new law, designed to prevent the travel of jihadists from Denmark and back. The paradox, however, is that these terrorists, this law is often not applied.
Instead of incarceration and confiscation of passports “Allah’s warriors” returning from hot spots, expects “programme of reintegration and deradicalization”. It includes psychological counseling, support for families of jihadists, assistance in employment and education. Under this program the authorities “liaise” with the largest mosques in Denmark – in particular, with a mosque in the city of Aarhus, where the preaching of radical Jihad.
Against this background it is not surprising that the ranks of the Danish Islamists are rising. In percentage terms, the country ranks second in Europe, after Belgium, according to the number of residents who went to war with the “infidels” in Syria, Iraq and Somalia. In 2009 the Dane Abdi Rahman Mohammed blew himself up in Mogadishu, the victims were 25 persons. In 2015, Dane Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein opened fire in a Central Copenhagen, killing two. Eliminating the terrorist, the police admitted that al-Hussein was well-known and trained for violent crime, involvement in gangs and illegal weapons possession.
The unwritten policy of patronage to the Islamists predictably failed in the case of Joanna Palani, three years ago, decided to defend from terrorists is not just the Kurds, but in fact the whole of European civilization.
Palani comes from a family of Iraqi Kurdish refugees after the first Gulf war, and lives in Denmark with three years. She was not yet twenty when she left College, where he studied at the scientist, and went to Iraq. At a time when many of her peers (often from Christian households) who are in earnest, and who was seriously interested in terrorist and sectarian romance LIH, Palani decided to fight the Islamists on the side of the Kurds. According to her, she was going to fight “for women’s rights and democracy in those European values, which are learned, becoming a Dane”.
In Iraq Palani joined the ranks of the Peshmerga, has mastered the Dragunov sniper rifle (a Kalashnikov assault rifle she owned nine years) and became a high performance sniper. In Syria she had to fight the women’s battalion of the Kurdish people’s protection units, particularly distinguished themselves in the fighting for Kobani, which the Kurds call their the battle of Stalingrad. The leaflets distributed by Kurdish self-defense, it is alleged that on account of Palani with her rifle about a hundred ISIS militants. And she herself, in an interview with Daily Mail said that all his life admired the legendary Soviet sniper Lyudmila Pavlichenko.
Moving on the territories of Iraq and Syria, the battalion, which fought Palani, leading his own war for a Kurdish state. First, they came into conflict with the forces of Assad, and then merged with the “Syrian liberation army” against ISIS, that is, was on the side of the international coalition led by the United States. Some time Kurdish was the local ally of America, but in 2016, supported by Russia, concluded a tactical Alliance with Assad already. However, wherever the Kurds had vicissitudes of the civil war, their purpose has remained the same – the creation of an independent Kurdistan.
In the women’s battalion Palani found those same European values that went to fight. There was total freedom of speech and religion, the direct electoral democracy, equality of men and women. Kurdish self-defense forces is currently Internationale, there are fighting natives almost from all countries of the world – Muslims, Christians, Communists. Commanders choose an open vote, but any privileges they have. All the natural resources on the territories under their control natsionaliziruyut.
Fascinated by the atmosphere of war communism, Palani could not join his comrades in the summer of last year, when Kurdish self-defense forces liberated from ISIS town of Manbij. “I’m sorry that I violated the travel ban, she told the Daily Mail. But I had no choice. I wanted to give their lives to stop the advance of ISIS to everyone in Europe can live in security. And now my own country thinks I’m a terrorist”.
Returning to Denmark, Palani caught between two fires. On the one hand, it extrude PET: sniper complained that security officers have to call her employers and tell about its “terrorist past”. On the other hand, fighting in Syria, Palani had made a lot of enemies. First she received from jihadist threats on the Internet. Later learned that the leadership of ISIS announced for its head a reward of one million dollars. And recently in Copenhagen, she was approached by a gunman, recently returned from Syria, and promised to finish the job. To Denmark from the Middle East returned so many extremists that Palani seriously feared for his life.
In the end, the Kurdish warrior went into hiding and now lives with friends, moving every three days and trying to find occasional work. “I live in the best country in the world, but I have nothing to eat, I have nowhere to live, I get cold at night and don’t trust anyone,” she says.
Nevertheless, Sochi is ready on everything if only not to go to jail: “I was proud to have served at least ten years for the salvation of men. But I don’t want to spend in prison for the accusation that I am a threat to Denmark. I don’t understand why when I see a threat. I fight for Europe and for the women.”
The point in this amazing story will be made by the court. Meanwhile, 23-year-old Dane, who tried to save Europe from terrorists, faces a prison sentence of up to eight years.
