Kardox - The Kurdish View

The Kurdish view of Middle Eastern politics

Location: Kurdistan - NOT IRAQ!, Kurdistan - NOT IRAQ!, Iraq

I am a 30 year old businessman in Hawler (Arbil, north Iraq). I have lived in Europe for almost 15 years, but now I work for a family investment company. Surely I would like to let know you people more, but I want to stay in once peace. I love bloging because it gives me the satisfaction to write about my thoughts.

Kurds extend condolences on Arafat’s death?

Kurdish Media reported about our brave and corrupt leadership shows solidarity to a man who was probably Saddam’s best friend. Their actions are becoming more and more surreal from the will of the Kurdish nationalists. I guess the “leaders” have more in common with Arafat that we believe, I mean they are both corrupted in many ways they probably even share the same bank in Swiss or some Island.

It seems for now it's only the KDP that is sorry for Arafats death, that's wired... considering that Arafat's best friend Saddam almost wiped out every Barzani (The leaders tribe) in Kurdistan. I wonder if thier father Mustafa Barzani will turn in his grave now.

Arafat died rich leaving a people hajjacked by terrorists and brainwashed with Islamic BS and a 30 year younger wife with 1,5 Billion dollars. (1500 Million dollars). With this moeny he could build 200 schools, 3 hostipils, 1 university, 100 youth centers, 20000 housing projects and a whole lot more.

Don’t mistake my critical point of view with the Kurdish course, I know personally many Kurdish high officials whom are nationalists in many ways. It’s up to the new generation to take over and actually act like leaders and listen to the peoples will.

Bahram Salih comments on Arafat before his death:
The Kurdish experience, says Mr. Barham, "shows that Iraq need not be ruled by a totalitarian dictatorship." He adds that "if we can do it, then the rest of Iraq can do it." He notes that the Kurds have done it despite their "tough neighbourhood." He suggests comparing the Kurdish success with "the corruption and the tyranny of Arafat" over the Palestinians. It's an intriguing comparison. The Kurds have long had their own frustrated aspirations of statehood. When the British drew the map outlining today's Iraq, they carved up the Kurdish population among four neighbouring countries. Today, there are some 12 million Kurds in Turkey, six million in Iran, one million in Syria and another million living overseas, as well as the four million in Iraq.

Will the REAL Kurdish leaders please stand up!
