Thus far in the talkbacks, it's been claimed that the Kurds are pro-shiite, pro-sunni, without natural resourses, sitting on huge oil reserves, terrorists, peace-loving people,et.al. Someone postsed that they indulge the horrific practice of 'honor' killing. And yet thede Kurds seem able to kickback from the strictures of radical islamism: "families go on holidays to nearby Azmar Mountain. There, they barbecue meat, make salads, have beers and enjoy the sun." Will a real Kurd please, step forth and define yourself?
