The duplicity of statehood for Palestinians and Kurds

By Namo Abdulla 10/12/2017
After Friday prayers, hundreds of Turks and Arabs from Bayazit Mosque poured into the streets of Istanbul to support Palestinians protesting the decision by US President Donald Trump to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

"God willing, a Palestinian state is going to be created," said one man in Arabic.

The same man derided the idea of an independent Kurdish state.

One woman said they "have no problem with the desire of Kurds to have an independent state."

But she labelled Kurdish statehood to be a project against Muslims.

The Kurds were the knights who fought and defeated the Islamist State, but the day this victory was achieved those very brave Kurds were abandonde by the West whose streets turned to be safer thanks to the Kurdish dedication in the war against the Islamic terror . The U.S. and Europe have enabled Arabs, Turks and Iranians to supress and enslave Kurds denying them the God-given right on self-determination. It happens now that Iranian,Turkish and Arab states are revolting against America. The West was very arrogant, very perfideous to sacrifice so easily its Kurdish friends

All Muslims in the world are against Kurdish state and happy to see us destroyed, despite that the Kurdish people choose to become disrespected cheap volunteers to serve Islam to a point where our streets are becoming more and more like Gaza and Afghanistan streets.
