By your logic because the Kurds have their own TV show that equals the sovereignty that "Palestinian" people have? After all which group can elect
its own government. Obviously not the Kurds. And again you fail to provide evidence, Kurds are not allowed to speak their language even though they
are citizens of Turkey, so how are things getting better?
Hey, this is not a competition who is right or wrong. We are talking about humans, societies, cultures etc.. So relax..Nobody failes here.
If you know the past of Turkey, you would accept that things are going better (as a process). Even the kurdish guerillas accept this. This does not
mean it is enough. But it is different than some years ago, when Kurds had absolutely no rights.
I do not understand why do you write "Palestinian"...Palestinians, Kurds are people who are oppresed by strong military powers like Turkey and
Is it it a coincidence that Israel and Turkey are allies? Strong big buddies..
You asked, which group elect their own governement...This is an issue where palestinian and kurdish problem differs. There are 10 million Kurds in
Turkey and most of them do not want to seperate. Actually half of the parliament are Kurds. But most of them belong to other parties and they are
assimilated. But it is a fact that as a culture and people they are oppresed. They deserve much more rights and recognition. But I doubt they want
their own parliament in Turkey or out of Turkey.
On the other hand, in North Iraq there is a Kurdish federation which will be most likely an independent country soon. This is another issue.
Dude, why would someone go from Turkey to Northern Iraq?
If Kurds will have more and more rights in Turkey, nobody will rebel and seperate, believe me. Here I am speaking about Turkish Kurds.
On the other hand, of course all Kurds have a right to build their own land. There are Kurds in all Middle East Countries.
Hope it was understandable because I do not trust my English
