If we support them then the US and the West will follow or at least lobby on their behalf in Washington and Europe. I have difficulty understanding why the entire world doesn't support Kurds. They are secular, fighting against al-Qaeda the enemy of the Jewish state and USA and they have been successful so far with their limited resources. They are not muslim radicals or fundamentalists, they believe in democracy and are hard working people. Is it because we have strategic interests with Turkey? Look at their president, he has turned into a dictator, manipulating media, sending journalists to jails, suppressing and suffocating opposition unjustly and using all the state apparatus for his own interest not to lose his position. No need to mention other countries for obvious reasons. Going forward, for the future of our region and for the sake of our own security, are we better off supporting or sidelining with dictators in the region or providing support to a democratic, western and secular nation of 40 million Kurds?
