Conviviality and the names dilemma


Since the beginning of the Syrian revolution six years ago, the Syrian regime started to share fake slogans about the Syrian mosaic and renouncing sectarianism in order to justify the war against the Syrian people.

Conviviality is one of the slogans raised by the self administration and its armed militias in a way to convince the locals who live under their rule that they are their partners and share the same history. But what about the demographic structure!
Three months ago, people protection units stated that the elders of Wazzeh clan were with their troops when they “liberated” several villages in the western countryside of Raqqa.

Wazzeh clan, whose elders were with YPG according to their statement, does not exist anywhere! Neither in Raqqa not in anywhere else! The real name of the clan is AlWalda, the question is how they do not know its name?
AlWalda tribe, which consists of two million people live in the area between Aleppo’s eastern countryside and Hasakah, is widely known in Syria and even in Saudi Arabia and gulf countries. It is normal for those who came from Qandil Mountain to not know the name of the tribe.

If we agreed, controversially, that it was only a spelling mistake, what about the other statement that talks about another tribe that its elders welcomed YPG and 5000 of its men asked to recruit in YPG. This statement talked about Elza tribe which is also does not exist! The real name of the tribe if Eniza, of course it is just another spelling mistake!.

In this same statement, they talk about Fadan tribe and of course there is no such name, the real name is Fada’an which is located in several Arab countries such as Syria, Iraq, Jordan and Gulf countries.
In the same context, one of the elders of Turkum tribe was encouraging YPG fighters and thanking them. It turns out that that man was Turkmen! Turkmen are deployed northern Syria and in vast arias in Turkey, this race has lived in this area for centuries but they have not heard of them apparently!

This was not limited to the names of the tribes, but also the Arabic cities and towns; they keep using Kurdish names for the Arabic cities on purpose to show that these cities and towns have Kurdish origins.
Is this conviviality? Does it mean to purposely invent new names for the cities and towns? Does it mean to make dozens of mistakes in the names of the most known tribes and families? This is only the beginning and nobody knows what comes after.
