1. America needs a Kurdish policy | Shadow Government →

    if kurds mistake the american goodwill or good talk for american policy, which often favors status quo or larger powers, they will be the sore losers…  what they need is to invest in their defenses, to distance themselves from their dependency on their neighbors (especially turkey), and to count on a war from their adversaries no different than the wars that were waged on israel by arab countries in 40s, 60s and 70s.  there is no magic path to a realm called independent kurdistan that is immune from the interference of its neighbors without hard work, sweat, tears and unfortunately blood.  so if you are a kurd, roll up your sleeves, and thank god for tasking you with a harder mission than the danes.  we have a chance to get rid of the weeds that are planted on our soil, like the turkish prisons, the turkish schools, the turkish flags, and my favorite the Turkish statues of ataturk.  as to the danes, the last time i checked, they were following the biblical injunction, “to those much is given much is expected.”  perhaps one day we will do the same…

    kurdistania:

    A documentary about Kurdistan.

    This is one of the best documentaries i’ve seen on the internet. It’s really worth to watch

    If you have 48 minutes to kill, please watch this.

    It gives you the insight of what the Kurdish Revolution was like and how it still is alive today. It interviews survivors of the bombings, the imprisonments, and the wars.

    If you want to know anything about the Kurds from a first-hand account, watch this.
