ERBIL, Kurdistan Region – The Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq, a Shiite political party, has expressed concern the Hungarian Prime Minister’s support for the potential independence of the Kurdistan region.    

“We followed the Hungarian Prime Minister’s speech on support for Iraqi Kurdistan’s independence with lots of concern and worry,” said the statement, released Tuesday. “We are surprised by the role some countries are playing, including our friend Hungary, who pledged support to the cause.” 

The powerful parliamentary Shiite party, which has been considered an ally to the Kurds in Iraqi parliament, emphasized the unity of Iraq and expressed concern over Hungary’s political position on Kurdistan.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Monday the government of Hungary supports nations striving for independence, including the Kurdistan region of Iraq, which he said can play a stable role in the Middle East.

"The powerful Shiite party which has been considered an ally to the Kurds in Iraqi parliament" Kurds have no allies in the Iraqi parliament, if they had such a "powerful ally" their budget would not have been cut for over a year (and now halved) despite taking in almost 2 million displaced Iraqis!, and their forces would not be fighting ISIS with old rusty Soviet weapons from the 70's while the Shia militias and even ISIS are fighting with brand new heavy American weapons. I'm so sorry to see that even the Shia parties we considered honorable and gave refuge to through out the 90's turned out to be backstabbing liars.

The Persians didn't have their own country for 1300 years, from 636 AD until 1925 AD and under these years they were belonged to the arabs The Rashidun Caliphs and then to the arabs The Umayyad Caliphate and then to the arabs The Abbasid Caliphate and then to the seljuk turks and then to the mongols and then to The Safavid Empire which was of mixed ancestry (Kurdish and Azerbaijani) and then to the Turkish Afsharid Empire and then to the Kurdish Zand Empire and finally to the Turkish Qajar Empire until 1925, when the British and French occupied the whole Middle East during WW1 including the whole Turkish Ottoman Empire with its capital Istanbul and the whole Turkish Qajar Empire with its capital Tehran. In 1925 the British liberated the persians from the Turkish Qajar rulers and established a new country (since 1935 calls Iran) and installed Reza shah Pahlavi as the first ethnic persian ruler since 1300 years. But the same British people didn't liberate the Kurds on the contrary they made it much worst for them, they divided Kurdistan into four parts according to the evil sykes picot agreement between Britain and France 1916 and destroyed the life of the whole Kurdish nation and now it's time to put end to the evil Sykes Picot agreement.

Don't lie, You Shiite Iraqi's could care less about the Kurds and independence. You only care because Kurdistan has oil and natural gas wealth.
