High heels, fatigues and gold rifle-shaped rings – singer Helly Luv's blend of bang and bling has made her the most popular cheerleader for the Iraqi Kurds' war against jihadis.She visits peshmerga forces fighting ISIS, and says she filmed her latest music video in Al-Khazr, not far from the jihadis' lines.The music video hits on many themes that the peshmerga have sought to emphasize since the anti-ISIS conflict began last June, showing them as the brave, secular defenders of the innocent threatened by jihadi brutality.Peshmerga officer Nawzad Saleh, said that in the days when the peshmerga were mountain-based rebel fighters, singers sang songs encouraging them to fight.When the jihadi group took over swaths of Iraq in June 2014 and subsequently attacked the peshmerga, many in the West held up the Kurds as the moral and military flagship of the world's fightback against ISIS.
