Kurdistan Will Become the New Israel

 

The speed with which the Kurdish referendum turned the Kurds into the new Jews and the idea of Kurdistan into the idea on November 30, 1947 by the United Nations to allow the Jews to have their state, if they could keep it, was predictable but still impressive. Just as in 1947, the Iraqi, Iranian, Syrian and Turkish leaders all threatening to destroy the Jewish State of Israel, even before its declaration; these same governments have threatened to blockade, invade and starve the Kurdish State even before it has been declared. We already have heard the term “disputed territories” as a reference to the potential Kurdish regions accompanying the threats to the region and the Kurdish People. The Iraqi government in Baghdad has already demanded the Kurds surrender their airports and borders to Baghdad and Turkey has threatened to close the border should the Kurds declare their nationhood. This threat to block all trade made despite the small item that the Turkish government makes a fair amount of profit from the oil pipeline which takes the crude from the Kurdish oil fields to Europe. We predict that should the Kurds succeed in declaring their freedom, the Turkish government will, at the very least, continue permitting the oil to flow and the money as well. That brings us to the next problem, what happens should the Kurds declare their independence from Baghdad.

 

There is one reality which the referendum revealed loudly and clearly, the Kurds will be declaring their independence, the only real question being how soon. Falah Mustafa Bakir, Head of Department of Foreign Relations for Kurdistan Regional Government, has stated he does not regret holding the referendum and has stated he would prefer to have negotiations with Baghdad and not start a confrontation. Bakir told Foreign Policy, “There is always the carrot and the stick. But they (Baghdad) have forgotten about the carrot. They know only the stick.” There is a lot that the Kurds could learn by simply looking to history, almost any history involving the Arabs and other people and remember two very important facts, that the Turkmen and the Iranians have been Arabized and share the Arab psyche when it comes to war or anything which opposes them. They both, along with the Arabs, all believe in Caliphate and the supremacy of their efforts in war and destiny as foretold in the Quran and thusly promised by Allah that all their lands will forever remain theirs and efforts to reclaim stolen lands are blessed and guaranteed. This is the reason they now believe they are about to go beyond the cusp and conquer all of Europe and will never end their war to destroy all of the Jewish State, Israel, and would never end efforts to destroy the Kurdish State once they should declare their independence. The Kurdish saving grace is their Peshmerga Militia just as the saving grace for Israel at the founding of the Jewish State was the disparate fighters who resisted British rule and became the initial Israeli Defense Force (IDF).

 

The Kurds have made the first mistake in delaying declaring their independence. The longer they postpone their declaration, the lower their opportunities will become, as their lands will be taken over piece by piece by Arabs settling. They will relocate Kurdish villages and replace them with Arab inhabitants one after the other bringing in more Arabs from every Arab nation, from Iraq, from Egypt, from Syria until there is no distinct Kurdish region in Iraq and that will end any opportunity for Kurdish independence. What the Arabs will do to the Kurdish region will be exactly what Saddam Hussein did to the Kurds from Kirkuk and Mosul. This is the reality the Kurdish people will face if they refuse to act definitively and immediately. Their only hope is their community and that is what will be destroyed while they talk, and the Arabs will talk and talk as they destroy the Kurdish People just as the Palestinian Arabs, a construct who are actually simply Arabs from Syria, Jordan, Iraq, Egypt and various other Arab nations, will never give up until the State of Israel is destroyed and the Jewish People are destroyed, made to live a slavish life under the thumb of the Arabs who consider themselves superior to all others. The Kurdish People have two hopes, declaring Kurdistan now and forever and the Peshmerga Militias which proved worthy enough to bring ISIS spreading across the lands to an end and then push them back and open the gates to Mosul aiding in their defeat there. The Kurdish People believe in their Kurdistan and need to actually do exactly what the Arabs, Iranian and Turks fear most, declare the Greater Kurdistan for all the Kurdish People. Below is our idea for a proposed Kurdistan which simply takes parts of Syria and Iraq leaving Turkey alone with its current borders.

The Kurds of Syria need to request to join their fellow Kurds and can do so by holding their own independence referendum as soon as they can arrange such. They then formally request to join their lands with the Kurdish regions of Iraq and promise to accept whatever style of government the Iraqi Kurds propose surrendering their ideas of a socialist state under a strong leader who would inevitably become a dictator which has proven time and again around the world to lead to disaster, just as President Trump stated loudly at the United Nations in his General Assembly speech where he stated,

”The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented. From the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela, wherever true socialism or communism has been adopted, it has delivered anguish and devastation and failure. Those who preach the tenets of these discredited ideologies only contribute to the continued suffering of the people who live under these cruel systems.”

The entire of the Kurdish People must be one which means permitting the Kurds of Turkey who desire to live under the rule of their own people and government to be permitted to immigrate to the new lands of Kurdistan. This would end the separative movements within Turkey as the Kurds desiring not to live under Erdogan and Turkish rule would have an option and Turkey would benefit in no longer having a restive and resisting people within their borders. The Kurds would benefit by having their own lands and rule. The Middle East would gain as an entire people would now no longer reside under the false borders imposed by the Europeans, namely the French and British who imposed the Sykes-Picot Treaty in order to make the Middle East unable to be ruled by any governance other than an oppressive rule. The establishing of Kurdistan could be the first step in a complete redrawing of the Middle East according to tribal and religious alliances making for more opportunity for harmony and potentially an economic revival and a brighter future for all in the Middle East and perhaps beyond. A Kurdistan could be the first step to redrawing the lines ending decades of stagnation and oppression. The leadership will oppose any change, as that would end their power. Either eventually the separate tribal and religious factions will gain their independence or there will be eternal struggles and warfare leaving the entirety of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) economically backwards, politically backwards, and societally disrupted with continued oppressions and constant upheaval and revolts.

The current examples of what the Sykes-Picot Agreement has wrought are Syria and Iraq. Syria has all but dissolved and will likely and unfortunately be returned largely to the rule of Bashir al-Assad thanks largely to Iran and an assist from Russian air-power. Iraq is also a partially dissolved state reliant upon Iran if it is to restore rule from Baghdad. The establishing of the nation of Kurdistan would free parts of both Syria and Iraq from oppressive rulers. Perhaps it might lead to dividing Iraq and Syria into their differing sectors by Shia and Sunni establishing nations who share religious beliefs and values. Of course, such a plan would only work providing the Sunni and Shia could decide to let go of their centuries old enmity. Whatever the future of the Middle East, if the Kurds desire to remain a people and preserve their culture, their only hope is to form a single nation incorporating the majority of their people residing in the immediate region and defending their lands with such vigor as to make all wary of engaging them in the future. The sad thing is it will more than likely require them defending their nations, once declared, from an immediate attack, if history is any lesson. The sooner they start, the better the outlook as time will result in a weakening of their position just as the not allowing Israel to be established immediately after the San Remo Conference and Treaty of Sèvres instead of waiting a quarter century allowing hundreds of thousands of Arabs to be settled within the borders set aside for the Jewish State. The Kurds must avoid permitting tens or hundreds of thousands of Arab to be implanted within what they desire as borders or they will face the same kind of terror warfare Israel has faced from even before her founding and right up to the latest attacks which came immediately after Mahmoud Abbas publically called for Days of Rage.
