Israel could regret its support for Kurds

Conventional wisdom dictates that Israel and Kurdish insurgents throughout the Middle East are close allies and there is plenty of evidence to confirm that historically, Israel has always militarily and otherwise aided Kurds in Iraq, Syria, Iran and even Turkey. Long before the rise of Erdogan in Turkey, Israel’s good relations with the Kurds was one of the only major points of disagreements in what was generally a healthy relationship between Ankara and Tel Aviv.

Should a Kurdish state form in Syria and/or Iraq, Israel and the US would essentially have a friendly proxy state near two historic rivals.

Although at a level of intelligence and military aid, Israel and the US always maintain a close relationship, various US Presidents have at times been frustrated both at a personal and political level with Israeli leaders

Could it be then that if a Kurdistan is America’s ‘second Israel’ in the region, it could at times flip-flop in respect of being America’s number one client state in the Middle East?

This is a reality that the overzealous, blindly anti-Arab Israeli leaders ought to consider.

There is a distinct possibility that if a Kurdish state is established either in Iraq or in Syria, that it would only take one spat between a hot-headed Israeli leader and a US President to make a so-called Kurdistan into America’s number one ally/client in the Middle East.

In this sense, Israel’s position in the Middle East could actually be challenged, not by an Israeli enemy but by a strongly allied US entity.

Stranger things have indeed happened. Turkey which for its entire modern existence has resisted Kurdish nationalism, has now done more to allow for the real possibility of a Kurdish state in Iraq and Syria than almost any other regional player, most of whom oppose Kurdish nationalism, with the exception of Israel and now possibly the additional exception of Saudi Arabia.

By destabilising Syria and to a lesser extent Iraq, Turkish President Erdogan’s policies which have destabilised the region as a whole, have emboldened Kurdish calls for nationalism on Turkey’s borders in the biggest way since at least the 1940s.

But just as Turkey has been on the receiving end of a possible unpleasant regional surprise partly of its own making, so too could Israel find itself in the same position.

In the short and medium term future, a would-be Kurdish state would be poorer and even more dependant on America than Israel, therefore there is even less of chance that a Kurdish leadership would ‘step out of line’ vis-a-vis Israeli leadership who often act with total impunity, in spite of whatever is said in Washington.

Israel has literally gotten away with murder because the US feels it has no choice but to side with Israel, no matter how many UN resolutions it breaks and no matter how aggressive its increasingly right-wing leadership becomes.

A Kurdistan could shift this balance in ways that Israel could not have anticipated.

Poetic justice? Perhaps, but at what cost to the Arab world? Too high a cost if you ask me.

Adam, from my research I have found that the Kurds are kin of the same ‘tribe’ as the khazars, i.e., Israelis. The Kurds, like their brethren, the khazars, are islamic + ‘jews’. Remember that banner on your very own article “Confirmed: Kurdish forces are now the enemy of Syria”: plainly confirms what I had learnt that there are ‘jew’ Kurds who moved to Israel when zion took possession of Palestine. Only ‘difference’ being they followed the Torah, although since joining the zion mobsters, they have included the Talmud. I did understand that they are not well treated in Israel –… Read more »

Interesting connection I was unaware of. Even so, I still believe that (for now) Israel is still intent on playing the Kurdish card (if possible) in exactly the way that Yinon layed out in his 1982 “Greater Israel” plan, (#23) where he directly discusses the destruction of Iraq and Syria through dissolution into denominations, specifically mentioning the Kurds.

Consider letting go of their widely ‘distributed’ psy-op Yinon carve up for WE are co-creators.
Remember always, the energy goes to wherever we focus / give attention – hence their control of all MSM + Hollywood + Geo-engineering + eduction/academia, etc.- to reap the focus of our attention/emotional reactions and direct it to whatever they want to engineer.

anything is possible, but Yinon was simply re-stating the 1907 Greater Israel concept of Herzl, and adding flesh to the bones.

Cynicism has set in, Kurds now being allies to the US could also at some time harbour ISIS or similar to harrass Assad? Considering that the US is behind ISIS and that the Kurds and SDF have made arrangements for ISIS to leave unhindered Raqqa, collusion is apparent and a possible alliance is evident.

I find this article as unusually naive. There are far too many people in the US deep state who are more devoted to Israel than they are to the US Constitution for them ever to forsake Israel for the Kurds. Why? Christian mythology with Old Testament mythology, partially, and partially because of fear of being labeled “anti-Semitic, and partially because of the number of zionists in the US. It will take far, far more than a few spats to break up that incestuous marriage.

I agree … members of Congress don’t swear their fealty to the Kurds, do they? As Cynthia McKinney found out, it’s gotta be the Chosenites or leave the boat. (I do hope that relationship of servitude changes. Actually, I’d love to see Alan Sobrosky’s statement come to fruition.)

We have no idea that, at the level of advanced scalar weapons, it is Israel who has had the technology to stop the hidden destruction of America by forces hostile to the USA who have obtained these advanced weapons. What we do not know is that there would be no America as we know it without important interventions by Israel.

I have been reading Thomas Bearden who is an American scientist who understands this technology, who has warned US leadership about the danger that is so close and who has been ignored.
