Alexandretta is a part of Kurdistan

Reader comment on item: Is the Hatay/Alexandretta Problem Solved?

Submitted by Mehmet Ali KUCUK (Belgium), Jun 29, 2007 at 13:34

First thing to say is that Turks, Persians and the bordering Arabs (ex-Iraq & Syria) share the same character: steal and claim whatever belog to Kurds. That's over and Kurds claim whatever belongs to them.

Mountains in Alexandretta province were named KurdDag (KurdMountain) by the Ottomans and Kurds had settled on these mountains and the surrounding land for thousands of years. Now, with the uprising nationalist understanding of the world, we Kurds claim whatever belongs to us and whatever we inherited from our ancestors: Kurdistan, and all!
