Three years of peace is an eternity in Islamic politics

Reader comment on item: Yawning over the Latest Headline News from the Middle East

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Mar 23, 2014 at 13:53

Dear Dr Pipes,

It is interesting that you have counted "emergence of independent Kurdistan" as a sign of hope in ME. Indeed, two or three years of peace is like an eternity in the Islamic world so let us hope for the best. But Kurdistan is also one of those proverbial 98% Islamic region where peace is the name of the game. To put the things in perspective two examples of Islamic brotherhood from yesterdays news: 1) Turkey downed a Syrian plane for violating its air space. and 2) Afghanistan saw a Pakistani hand in a luxury hotel bombing in Pakistan.

Let us keep our fingers crossed. If ever independent Kurdistan plans to be born, I shudder to think what the surrounding brotherly countries like Turkey, Iran, Syria, Iraq will do. I hope and wish that it does not happen but I am certain that it will happen. I do not even see the need of an Independent Kurdistan.
