The Kurds have been trying to advance their independence for 25 years, ever since the world forbade Saddam Hussein’s air force from flying over their territory. They have developed a legitimate, democratic, organized and fair government over the past two and a half decades, as well as a disciplined top level army that proved its mettle against ISIS in Mosul. They have responsible media which portray both sides of the controversy and in general are a tranquil society with no internal violence, a successful economy based on oil and related products.
Even though it is the Kurds who are the best ally of the USA in the Arab/Muslim Middle East, and it was the Kurds who defeated ISIS, the USA betrayed them and allowed Iran to take away their chances for Independence. Israel must learn the necessary lesson from this.
