Dr. Pipes

The Kurds are a real nation without a country and they have been betrayed by friends and allies

I urge readers who want to know more about them to read Jonathan Randal's great introduction to the Kurds and their tragedy and yes it was written in 1997 but it is still very good reading about a nation that has a homeland in four countries but no political control

It is very heart warming to know that the many Kurds now admit that their ancestors were involved in the murder of the Armenians and during Saifu (the Syrians genoicide) in the murder of Syrian Christians and now they realize that when the Armenians are gone and the Syrians are gone they were next

PS: The only other nation/states in the region are Iran Kurdistan and Egypt
