ISRAEL: Netanyahu declares support for a Kurdish state

Israelis hold up placards, including a portrait of Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan' labeled wanted, during an anti-Turkish protest outside the Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv on July 08, 2010. Protesters waved Kurd flags and chanted slogans in favor of the Kurd people and against, what they call, their depression by Turkey.

On September the 25th of this year, Kurds in northern Iraq are to hold a referendum on secession from Iraq. Rex Tillerson, the US Secretary of States has recently come forward asking the Kurds to postpone the referendum. Today, Russia came out joining the US in calls to postpone the referendum while saying that Moscow would oppose any measures which harm Iraq’s territorial integrity, including Kurdish separatism. Russia has encouraged local Kurdish leaders to engage in constructive dialogue with Baghdad in order to find a compromise solution that rejects separatism.

It is well known that all the countries of the region including Turkey, Iran and Syria are opposed to Kurdish separatism in Iraq as they oppose such moves in their own countries.

Today, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu put himself at odds with the rest of the international and regional community when he declared his support for Kurdish separatism.

The Jerusalem Post reports that Netanyahu spoke before a group of American Congressmen where he advocated for the creation of a Kurdish state in what is now northern Iraq. He then called the Kurds, “brave, pro-Western people who share our values”. This phrase was doubtlessly employed in order to appeal to his US audience.

This not only puts Israel at odd with countries it is already at odds with (Iran, Iraq, Syria), but also puts Israel at odds with Turkey, a traditional ally of sorts to Tel Aviv. With both the United States and Russia calling for restraint, Netanyahu has decided to lay his cards on the table as Israel has long had links with Kurdish militants in Arab states.

The move will be popular among certain Kurds but will further isolate Israel from countries in the region, this is after all one of the reasons why many in Tel Aviv are anxious to help bring about a new state in the Middle East that would be a rare Israeli ally.

This must be the kiss of death to poor Kurdistan. They must talk and settle with all the Kurdish hosting nations to secure their future. The US and Israel will NEVER help them. They will be used and thrown away, just like Ukrainians against Russia.

I think it will make Syria,Iraq,Iran,and Turkey mad (rightfully). But I don’t think most of the rest will be “that ” upset. Arab unity at best is “skin deep”. The Saudis and Gulf states are already pro-Israeli (even though not publicly). And Egypt and Jordan have treaties and relations with Israel. They sold out to the US decades ago. Those countries only give “lip service” to caring as the Israelis genocide their fellow Arabs in Palestine.So if they let the Israeli do that. They aren’t going to care about Israel and the Kurds.The problem to watch is the US. Netanyahu… Read more »

I think that The Great Satan has reignited Arab Unity and included some new heavy-hitters to back it – Iran and multi-ethnic Russia.
The plans of Israel and its dog are looking pretty shitty right now.
They wanted a parking lot. They are getting a SECULAR Pan Arabic State with strong allies who KNOW what the Anglo-Zionist empire is and what they have done.

https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2011/10/25/the-doenmeh-the-middle-easts-most-whispered-secret-part-i.html The Saudis are Jews – the “royal” family. Furthermore, it seems that the Semitic Jews originated in Yemen and the South of what is now Saudi Arabia. There is a book called “Egypt Knew No Pharoahs or Israelites.” by Ashraf Ezzat which explains it – and it is fascinating. One should also read the wonderful book by the wonderful Israel Finkelstein which shows that no Jews or Hebrews or Habiru or any such ever inhabited Palestine in any numbers at all. I also recommend a Youtube video called “The Walls Come Tumblin’ Down.” posted by Julian Schoeman but made… Read more »

Remarkably similar treatment is now being meted out to the Christians and Muslims of the USA to what was meted out to Russian Christians and Muslims of the Russian Empire in the first ‘color revolution’ – the Red one in 1917. The quote below sheds some light on the matter: “Contrary to what so many good people – out of sheer terror of ‘Communism’ – think, Capitalism is not ‘free enterprise,’ an incentive for success, ‘a chance for all.’ Capitalism is trusts, speculation, parasitical usury. Capitalism is J. P. Morgan, Rothschild’s bank, ripping apart the nations like maddened swine. Capitalism… Read more »

Free enterprise is an integral part of capitalism and not all enterprises become gigantic monopolies or operation on fraud. However, all human systems require restraint and oversight. Fraud and contract laws exist for a purpose. That there are abuses, even serious abuses, is not a condemnation of the whole.

Unfortunately, the political (!) process has become a captive playground of the ultra-rich. That is not a defect of capitalism.

It may be. When power is dropped it is picked up by someone else.
Lenin said it: “Power was lying on the sidewalk. We just picked it up.”

I would have thought very few ‘Western people’ share Netanyahu’s values.
