The Kurdish Question Revisited

Since the early twentieth century, the Kurdish question remains unresolved. While the Palestinian issue receives much attention and UN resources, the largest ethnic minority in the Middle East struggles for such attention. Although, the Kurds, especially in Syria, did the heavy lifting against the so-called Caliphate thugs, they were promptly abandoned to their own devices. With a new administration in the US, there is some expectation that the Kurds in Syria, at least, will be supported in their efforts to establish autonomy and independence. This lecture will briefly look at the historical context and proceed to the current situation in Turkey, Iraq and Syria vis-à-vis the Kurds.
