Circassians From Exile…
second half of the Nineteenth Century, had witnessed the reaping phase of tens,
no but hundreds of years of sowing, cultivating, and planting evil, murder, hate,
greed, ethnic cleansing, and genocide. The “Russian-Caucasian War” was
approaching its end, and the scenes of destruction, burning, looting, mass
graves and cemeteries, mass-displacement and mass-deportation of the Circassian
Nation, in addition to other nations in the North Caucasus, which reached the
peak of evilness, and wickedness in the year that the war had officially ended,
that was marked with 21, May, 1864.
beginning of the Twentieth Century had started to be the end of imperialism in
the world, when countries like Great Britain and France attempted to grasp to
their colonies, paralleled by trends and demands for end of colonialism, and to
restore national independence, liberty, and freedom in addition to condemn
oppression and containment. The struggle of the subjugated nations for national
sovereignty and for peoples to rule their own countries such as Ireland in
Europe, as well as the insistence for self-rule in colonies like India, and
tens of nations located as per the description, the “Third World”, which
resulted at some times in clashes and confrontations, often led to atrocious endings,
but with national victorious conclusions.
mentioned active rule of the anti-imperialism and anti-colonialism throughout
the world couldn’t at the beginning to penetrate the Soviet Iron Carton, that
had to be challenged before the end of the 20th Century, by peoples
and nations, which lead to the destruction of the so-called the Soviet evil
empire, and the militarily and economically dominated Eastern European states
had been liberated, beside all those who were considered in fact, colonies and
subjects in the so-called 15 Soviet republics (which was in reality, a system
run by Russians under the Soviet glittering title), and those who used to be
orbiting in its artificial satellite structure. At the same time calls for
freedom, self-determination and independence, couldn’t impinge on the
gluttonous and greedy appetite that soughed to keep events under the central
control of Moscow’s Kremlin, which ruled those subjects in an unprecedented iron
fest method that had a system of reaching all those who might think of gaining
any sort of freedom, that went as far as a comical comment had described it as:
“counting the breath cycles of the individuals”. It is worth mentioning though
in this aspect that the Soviet Union used to pretend that it was on the side of
the colonized nations by other imperial states such as Britain and France, and
always had supported such demands in the United Nations, and even went to the
extent of presenting military training and weapons for those who used to work
for the liberation and independence of their nations, which shows a duplicate and
double-standard approach, that would remind of the famous proverb: “Practice
what you preach”!
had been and still, the name of the game of the consecutive imperial Russian
authorities since Evan the Terrible of the Muscovites, through the Russian Tsars,
then the Soviet Communist leaders, until reaching the presently so-called
Russian Federation. In actual fact it is a coalition amongst selected rulers
and leaders of the regions and provinces (that are populated by approximately
120 colonized nations), most of them are in close contact to the “KGB/FSB
Soviet/Russian System”, that are appointed by the central dictatorial system,
with their bosses who delegated them for such duty, which got nothing to do
with the real meaning of federalism, because the description didn’t develop or
evolve from a real democratic progression and process, but it was meant to be
an impressive ornamental title depiction.
Russian early entry into the game of imperialism neither exempts nor acquits
the Russian state of its moral and human responsibility from setting free all
colonies occupied by military force, starting with the nations of the North
Caucasus, and to permit freedom of choice, and self-determination of all
oppressed nations by Russia, which requires the Russian authorities to solve
out all troubles, harms and consequences resulted from its unequal wars against
the occupied nations, especially the Circassian nation which is brought as an
example in this context, because of the tragic memories of the catastrophic
aftermath of the crimes committed by the criminal invading forces. Also,
ethically speaking, if Russia is intending to be part of the civilized world,
the Russian people should be granted liberty, civil rights equality for all citizens
alike in accordance with the law, and in the full sense of the word.
out Circassia from the face of the earth is not possible and vain, because a distinguished,
ancient, highbred, deep-rooted, and inveterate nation with civilization,
culture, and language that is more than 6000 years old, and still exists after
all evil and devil plans and implementations of military invasion, criminal and
immoral actions, for the purpose of extermination had not succeed.
It is true that Circassians were three to four
million in the nineteenth century, when the total population of Egypt at the
time was about the same population, and looking at Circassians’ population in
comparison with Egyptians we find out that total Circassian population in both
Homeland and Diaspora (more than 30 countries) is approximately 10% of the
population of Egypt!
that an indication of any sort?
it point to a crime of any nature, against the Circassians, and their Homeland?
the malevolence of deleting Circassia from the map (thinking that they are
wiping Circassia from the face of the earth), to be replaced by other
artificial and non-Circassian titles and names, pertain to any sincere Russian
initiative towards those Circassians of the “Circassian World”, that extends
between Motherland and Diaspora, who were deceived and betrayed by many sides?
is the future of all the procrastination and vindication performed by the
Russian authorities concerning the recognition of the genocide and ethnic
the decision of holding the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Circassian Sochi, be a
good gesture towards Circassians and Adigas?
could building the prospective Olympic structures after leveling and flattening
the area that contains the cemeteries of the brave Circassians who perished
while defending legitimately their people and their Homeland, make whoever was
behind this illogical decision, to live with no guilt conscious, when humiliate
all those who were killed and those who are still living while the vital issues
of genocide, occupation, and self-determination are not resolved yet?
dancing and playing Olympic Winter Games on the bones and skulls of the
deceased Circassians who were buried, in the battle field where the Russian
invaders fought with defenders to take over their Homeland, a blessing for the
games and for civilization?
when Circassia will stay "denied
by genocide”, where the world had observed Tsarist Russian forces’ butchers
inflicting their criminal acts during the Russian-Caucasian war that had ended
in May, 1864, and when there are important issues will be dealt with in regard
to restoring the forgotten Circassian rights?
When the important issues would be dealt with
in regard to restoring the Circassian dignity, in accordance with the
International Law, Charter of the United Nations, and the Universal Declaration
of Human Rights?
is appropriate for Circassians to answer these mentioned queries, because the typical
Russian rubber-stamp reply is well known to all those who followed their
policies, stratagems and tricks through the years!
reborn again; rights should be restored, regained, and retained. Circassia
needs recognition, freedom, and independence. Europe and the civilized world
are ethically committed, and they should activate efforts to end up Russian
Imperialism in Europe, and Mount Albros, is the highest peak in the European
Continent, which is located in Circassia. Sochi Winter Olympics on the bones
and skulls of the brave Circassians should be cancelled. Justice for Circassia
and other Russian colonized nations should be served against aggressors, also
the sensitive documents in the Tsarist archives should be promptly published
for the world to read and to know the Russian own wrong doings that
were written and documented by their own spoiled and criminal generals!
End of Imperialism is a preferred world-wide tendency, and
one day the browbeaten colonized nations will wake up to reality, in order to
restore their dignity, freedom, the right of self-determination, free of
subjugation, and containment.
