Reader comment on item: Is the Hatay/Alexandretta Problem Solved?
in response to reader comment: Alexandretta is a part of Kurdistan

i believe in a very large swathe of LAND in Eastern Anatolia.... which in fact constitutes a KURDISH Homeland, an ancient heritage Homeland, with Assyrians as a minority & with Armenians as a larger Minority. But Alexandretta is a very very very long way from Eastern Anatolia, these kurdish citizens there & in CILICIA are recent imports, & recent immigrants. Also for instance in Adhana, there are Kurds, in a traditionally historically Syrian City.
