The Deltinian Insurgency (Creeperian SpanishCreeperian: Ինսփրգենծիա Դելտինիանո; Creeperian Spanish – Iberic: Insurgencia Deltiniano; Deltinian Arabic: التمرد الدلتيني; transliterated as: al-tamarud al-diltiniu), also sometimes referred to as the Deltinian Conflict, referred to by Creeperans as The Crusade (Creeperian Spanish – Creeperian: Լա'Ծրփզադա; Creeperian Spanish – Iberic: La'Cruzada), referred to by Deltinians as The Jihad (Deltinian Arabic: الجهاد; transliterated as: al-Jihad), is an ongoing internal conflict and insurgency located in southern Creeperopolis in the department of Deltino, which has also spilled over into the neighboring departments of Castilliano and Sonsatepan, as well as the neighboring nation of Sequoyah.

The insurgency is considered to have begun on 18 February 1978 when the 1978 Deltino race riots began, when Creeperian and Castillianan rioters began murdering ethnic Deltinians indiscriminately, leading to the formation of the Society of Deltinian Brothers self-defense militia group by Muhammad al-Umar. Since 1978, the Creeperian government, Creeperian Armed Forces, and various death squads have waged war with the group and several other groups which later formed.

The conflict has infamously become known for war crimes committed by both sides during the conflict, the high death toll of civilians, and notable terrorist actions committed against government and military targets, infrastructure, and civilians. The Terraconserva Council of Nations (TCN) has met several times in regard to the ongoing conflict and crisis in southern Creeperopolis throughout the conflict's history. As a direct result of the insurgency, hundreds of thousands to millions of people have been displaced with thousands more fleeing the country as refugees. Poverty rates have severely risen while access to healthcare and education have been severely limited by the conflict. Around 800,000 to 1,275,000 civilians have been killed since the start of the insurgency, and another 1,500,000 to 2,125,000 civilians have been wounded. Meanwhile, the combined military death toll of the fighting factions, relative to the civilian death toll, is only 190,000 to 240,000.

The war is primary a religious and ethnic-fueled conflict, with fighting occurring between the mostly Catholic Creeperans and the mostly Islamic Deltinians. The conflict is one of many wars which have occurred between the two religious and ethnic groups since 744AD. The insurgency has been labeled as a "crusade against Islam" by several Creeperian politicians and military officers. Likewise, the insurgency has been described as a "jihad against Catholicism" and a "jihad against Creeperian oppression and imperialism" by Deltinian rebel leaders.

Background

Creeperian–Deltinian ethnic and religious tensions

Since the arrival of Deltinians in Sur in 734AD and their subsequent conquest of the Old Kingdom of Creeperopolis in 745AD, ethnic and religious tensions between the two groups have been common throughout their shared history. The first major instances of overt ethnic and religious violence between the two groups occurred during the Creeperian Crusade between 1231 and 1345, where both groups massacred the other; Deltinians massacred Creeperans and Creeperian Catholics, and Creeperans massacred Deltinians and Deltinian Muslims. Tensions culminated in the massacre of Almadinat Almuqadasa on 13 June 1326 and the massacre of Shata' Albahr on 25 December 1345.

On 14 June 1326, Creeperian King Miguel I proclaimed the Decree of La'Victoria, which outlawed the practicing of Deltinian Islam within Creeperopolis' domains. Practicing the religion was made punishable by death, beginning the First Great Persecution of Deltinian Islam which lasted from 1326 until 1600, when the decree was nullified and rendered void by the First Parliament. During the nearly-three hundred year period of persecution, an estimated "millions to tens of millions" of Deltinian Muslims were killed. The largest instance of ethnic and religious violence between the two groups between 1600 and 1839 was the 1620 Abdan race riot, during which, a race riot against Deltinians and Muslims, killing Badri al-Morad, the first Deltinian member of the First Parliament, and 1,418 other Deltinian civilians.

On 4 May 1839, Creeperian Emperor Adolfo III proclaimed the Decree of San Salvador, again outlawing the practicing of Deltinian Islam in Creeperopolis. Between 800,000 and 1.2 million Deltinians and Deltinian Muslims were killed between 1839 and 1887 in the Second Great Persecution of Deltinian Islam. The persecution was ended on 31 December 1887 when the Second Parliament nullified it and rendered it void. Because of the second persecution and the role that several right-wing politicians had in its execution, the overwhelming majority of Deltinians and Deltinian Muslims aligned themselves politically with the left-wing People's Social Coalition, mostly voting for the Creeperian Socialist Party (PSC). Throughout the Second Parliamentary Era, the party had attempted on various occasions to reconcile Creeperian–Deltinian relations and to have those responsible for the second persecution brought to justice, increasing their popularity with the people.

In 1921, the far-right Creeperian Pro-Fatherland Front (FPPC) was established by Carlos Hernández Videla, and throughout its "reign of terror" during the Second Parliamentary Era, the group utilized its paramilitary Camisas Negras to intimidate its political opponents. The group also, however, also targeted, attacked, and killed Deltinians and Deltinian Muslims as a part of their ultranationalistic ideological beliefs. The attacks increased Deltinian and Deltinian Muslim support for the political-left, however, they opposed the far-left and their anti-theist policies, particularly the Creeperian Social Communist Party and their Atheist Red Army.

Civil-war era atrocities

Upon the outbreak of the Creeperian Civil War, the Deltinians and Deltinian Muslims were unable to align themselves with either side of the war, as on one side was the far-right, fundamentalist Catholic, and fascistic Catholic Imperial Restoration Council, and on the other side, was the far-left, fundamentalist Atheist, and communistic National Council for Peace and Order. On 7 May 1937, hundreds of thousands of Deltinians, led by Muammar al-Koroma, a Deltinian imam, revolted against the authority of the National Council after the Huetapán Massacre, in which the National Council executed 24 Deltinian imams for practicing Deltinian Islam. The rebellion, which occurred in Abdan, Helam, and Jakiz, historically referred to as the "Deltinian departments," was crushed by the National Council by 17 May 1937. General Pascual Espinar Casaus reported that his soldiers killed 3,139 "rebelling Deltinian guerrillas," while Deltinians claimed that the National Council systemically massacred up to 328,000 Deltinians, mostly civilians. Modern historians believe that the death toll was somewhere around the 50,000 to 100,000 range, however, the figure of 328,000 is still the most commonly spread figure due to both anti-communist and anti-islamic sentiment in Creeperopolis. After the suppression of the rebellion, Deltinian opposition to the National Council increased, however, the continued to oppose the Imperial Council as well. Many Deltinians came under attack from both the Camisas Negras and the Atheist Red Army in the aftermath of the rebellion, and news of the high death toll of the rebellion and massacre spread across Creeperopolis.

On 13 June 1944, the Militarist Nationalist Front (FRENAMI) paramilitary death squad, led by Adolfo Rivera López, committed the Denshire Massacre in the city of Denshire. The massacre killed 25,000 people, most of whom were religious or ethnic Deltinians, and notably, the Militarist Nationalist Front executed the city's Mayor, José Núñez Barceló, for attempting to shelter Deltinians within the mayoral palace. The massacre was the largest committed by the Imperial Council against Deltinians during the civil war, and as such, the Creeperian government denies the existence of the massacre

Deportations of Deltinians

On 28 December 1949, Emperor Romero II, with pressure from former members of the Creeperian Pro-Fatherland Front and Catholic Royalist Party (PRC), issued the Proclamation of Deltinian Deportation which ordered the immediate deportation of all ethnic and religious Deltinians to the newly established department of Deltino in the southernmost part of Creeperopolis in territory from the recently annexed Kingdom of Castilliano. The deportation order began to be enforced the following day and the Creeperian Army and Creeperian Imperial Guard began forcibly deporting Deltinians to Deltino. Most Deltinians in Creeperopolis at the time lived in the so-called "Deltinian departments" of Abdan, Helam, and Jakiz, with other notable minority groups living in San Luís, Senvar, and Zapatista.

Violence against Deltinians was commonly committed by the Creeperian Army and Creeperian Imperial Guard as Minister of Defense Alfonso Cabañeras Moreno stated that no one would be prosecuted or punished for any crimes committed against Deltinians during the process of the deportations. By the end of the first year of the deportations, 30,000 Deltinians were deported and an estimated 21,000 more were killed.

1968 race riot

On 14 January 1968, a Creeperian woman, Anastasia Felicia Guzmán Rodríguez, was raped and murdered in Ciudad Rey Alfonso I, the capital city of the department of Deltino. Her rape and murder was blamed on a Deltinian man, Ahmed al-Gabur. He was abducted by a mob of Creeperans, beaten, and lynched in the city center. For the next two months, mobs of Creeperans began indiscriminately killing Deltinians. The race riots of 1968 were stopped by the Creeperian Army on 19 April 1968 when the Army occupied the city. During the riots, an estimated 400 Deltinians were killed.
