More and more is coming out about this “victim of tragedy” and the opportunist – not refugee – he actually is that cost the life of his family. It’s the usual Muslim lies, duplicity and manipulation running fake asylum Hijrah, now costing BILLIONS for European countries not to mention massive losses of revenues from tourism that are abandoning the Mediterranean shores.
Aylan Kurdi’s father Abdullah first claimed to have managed the boat that cost all the lives in it. He claims he wore the only life vest, struggling with storms and the death of his own children drowning in front of his own eyes, to make himself look even more the victim and to play up to international media attention. In fact, he only heard about the death of his family when he was called to identify them at a Turkish hospital after he assumed they were somewhere on the beach and had “ran away”. He tried to send them on their trespassing onto European shores ahead of himself, on their own.
Since he has invented a tall tale republished all over the world, that he was tossed around in a boat “fleeing” terrorists, while he was actually living safely in Turkey with over $4,000 in cash, other family members of dead relatives are now coming forward to question him. They had children on the same boat who died and are now accusing him of their death. So what does Abdullah Kurdi respond with? He backtracks and denies his initial story that he was ‘driving’ the boat and claims he never managed the boat. When will get his admission that his entire tale was pure Palestinian-style jihad propaganda and staged to push guilt onto the delusional Eurocrats, to make them reward criminality and terrorism at the cost of their own safety, security, financial stability and freedom?
Father of Aylan Kurdi angrily hits out at Iraqi mother who accused him of being a ‘people smuggler’ after she lost two children on same doomed boat trip that killed his family
- Zainab Abbas was on the same boat as Aylan Kurdi, three, and his family
- Her two children and three Kurdi family members were among the dead
- Now Ms Abbas made claims on Australian TV that Aylan’s father Abdullah was driving the dinghy
- Mr Kurdi, speaking to MailOnline from Kobane, Syria, denied her claims
The father of Syrian refugee Aylan Kurdi has hit out at an Iraqi mother who accused him of being a ‘people smuggler’ after she lost two children on the same boat that killed his own family.
Zainab Abbas, whose son and daughter died on the doomed boat trip, said Abdullah Kurdi was the driver of the boat and begged her not to ‘dob him in’.
But the grieving father, speaking to MailOnline from the Syrian city of Kobane, denied her claims and says he does not understand why she is trying to tarnish his reputation.
The photograph of the tiny body of Aylan shocked the world and sparked an outpouring of support for Syrian refugees.
He died alongside his brother Galip, five, and mother Rehan, when their boat capsized after setting off from Bodrum, Turkey, in a bid to reach the Greek island of Kos.
Reacting to Ms Abbas’ claims, Mr Kurdi said: ‘This is not true. If I was a people smuggler, why would I put my family in the same boat as the other people? I paid the same amount to the people smugglers.
‘I am devastated for the loss of my family and what happened to me. This is too much for me and now they want to ruin my reputation.’
Yesterday, Ms Abbas blamed the tragedy on Mr Kurdi, who has since returned to Kobane to bury his wife and two children.

‘Yes, it was Abdullah Kurdi driving the boat,’ Ms Abbas told Australian TV station Network Ten through her cousin Lara Tahseen today.
Ms Abbas said the man she paid to book her passage told her it would be safe because the driver was taking his wife and two children.
‘When I lost my kids, I lost my life, how can he lie to the media?’ her cousin Ms Tahseen said, translating for Ms Abbas.
‘He said: “Please don’t dob me in.” That was in the water.’
Ms Abbas said Mr Kurdi was speeding in the overcrowded boat, which did not have enough life jackets.

She said her husband told him to be careful shortly before the boat capsized, reportedly killing at least 12 people.
Mr Kurdi, who did not know Ms Abbas’ name until MailOnline told him it, added: ‘I thought about driving the boat but I didn’t do it. That is all lies.’
‘I know there was an Iraqi family on the boat and two children had died – a boy and a girl. I don’t know why Zainab is saying that.
‘She had the same as me – she lost her children, I lost my children.
‘I have three graves in front of me and I have no one.

Ms Abbas’ 12-year-old daughter Zainab and eight-year-old son Haidar were trapped under the small boat when it capsized in the Aegean Sea.
Ms Abbas, her husband and their three children had left Iraq, travelled to Istanbul and then made their way to Bodrum on the coast.
They spent almost two weeks trying to get an opportunity to make the dangerous crossing to Greece.
Ms Abbas, her husband and their third child survived the tragedy. The bodies of the two children who perished arrived in Baghdad on Wednesday.
They were taken to the Shiite shrine city of Karbala, south of Baghdad, and buried in small graves in the dusty soil as weeping relatives looked on.
