We the Kurds are deeply sympathetic to Israel and an independent Kurdistan will be beneficial to Israel as well. It will create a balance of power in the region. Right now, Israel is one country against many. But with an independent Kurdish State, first of all Israel will have a genuine friend in the region for the first time, and second, Kurdistan will be like a buffer zone in the face of the Turkey, Iran, Syria and Iraq.
Iraq was an artificial creation to begin with, and thus, it is time for the U.S. government to recognize that a unified Iraq is nothing less than supporting old colonial machinations.
On September 25, Iraqi Kurdistan is set to hold a referendum, where the Kurdish people will decide whether to become an independent state or not.
Masoud Barzani, the President of the Iraqi Kurdish Regional Government (IKRG) announced an independence referendum to be held on September 25 this year.
An alliance with the Kurds could open the door for Israel to form true, reliable and sustainable relations with other minorities in the region.
