Prior to the referendum in Iraqi Kurdistan on Sept. 25, the leaders of Iran, Turkey and Iraq all foretold of the coming of a “second Israel” if Kurdish independence was the end result.
Why the United States’ inexplicable abandonment of the Kurdish people is ‘the geopolitical equivalent of a stock-market crash’.
What happened to Kurdish dreams of independence is a warning signal of what could happen to an Israel which relies on the world.
‘We should not have abandoned Kurdistan, the only real pole of stability in the region’.
‘Firstly, any support from Israel, a key power in the Middle East, is not a stain on the Kurds. Secondly, the presence of some Israeli flags hardly signifies a greater conspiracy other than mutual respect for their respective plights.’
