Kurds are not Arabs! Why not give them their own country?

This would be a start in curtailing the MESS in what WE call Iraq. Maybe cut off the southern Shiaa part as well.

    The Kurds have one BIG problem here in Iraq.

    Everyone hates them among the Arabic nations and beyond.

    Turkey put out a decree a decade ago that they would "invade and destroy any Kurdish Free State on its borders".

    Two years ago right before the general election here in Iraq, the Sunni and Shi'a stopped fighting each other for four months to come north and kill Kurds. They did this in order to prevent the Kurds from gaining a majority in the voting process.

    Source(s): This nation has three problems preventing it from stopping the violence. Two Muslim groups that hate each other and a Kurdish population in northern Iraq that both despise.

    The Kurds are hated throughout the middle east; the only way they'd actually live in peace is if they were all relocated away from the Arabs. That, or a state is made by force, which would make their relationship worse with their middle eastern neighbors.

    There used to be a Kurdistan, which became part of Turkey and Iran. The Turks don't want another Kurdistan, since they were a cause of trouble to them in the past. The current Iraqi government does not want to separate or partition them since it would cause a loss in oil revenues and a decrease in the military. The Kurds are very good militarily. They are also very good in business matters and smart in investments.

    the kurds for years have seemed to live by themselves even though they are part of Iraq.

    i'm with kristin

    another jewish ("kurdish") state, bordering on iran, is not in th middle east's best interests

    it's not even reasonable to expect russia or iran to put up with such a thing, or even turkey

    so you can list all kinds of sentimentalist propaganda to justify a kurdish/jewish state, but any understanding of history and current events shows that it is simply a stupid idea.
