They are the fourth largest ethnic group in the Middle East, but they never obtained a permanent nation-state. Around 35 million Kurdish reside in the mountainous regions located at the borders of Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Iran, and Armenia. During the rise of the Ottoman empire, the Kurds were promised a separate homeland. When the borders of modern Turkey and its neighbours were drawn there was no more talk of an independent Kurdistan. The thought of a free Kurdistan, can be worrying, will there ever be an independent state? - Subscribe to our channel: 🤍 - Follow us on Twitter: 🤍 - Find us on Facebook: 🤍 - Check our website: 🤍 #AlJazeeraEnglish #Kurdistan #Explainer

I first thought of it as an act of support to the protests in Iran that were triggered by the killing of Mahsa Amini (who was Kurdish by the way) back in 2022. As I already had a video about Persian, I decided to make this video on Kurdish and to donate the income from it. I haven't decided yet what is the most appropriate organisation, is it helping Kurdish refugees, or helping refugees from Iran, or helping all refugees, but I'll put it here when I make my decision. In the meanwhile, enjoy learning about Kurdish! Kurdish language is spoken in the region of Kurdistan by the Kurdish people - a largest nation that doesn't have a country. It is spoken across several countries throughout the Middle East and it has a very different status in each of those countries. Kurdish language may be spoken in the Middle East, but it is not related to Arabic or Turkish. Instead, together with Persian, it is included in the Indo-European language family, that contains also many Indian and European languages, including English. That's right, Kurdish is closer to English than to Arabic! And there are many more unique and interesting features of Kurdish that we explore in this video!

With about 40 million people, the Kurds are the largest ethnic group without their own state, but why? The Kurds' settlement area spans many countries, but most of them live in Turkey, Iraq, Syria, and Iran. A Kurdistan encompassing most of this population would stretch across many states and take up large portions of their territory, and that's where we come to our problem because none of these states have any interest in giving up territory. Turkey, for example, could lose up to 18% of its population, a huge chunk of land, and the resources that go with it. And since Kurdistan would span so many states, it is in the interest of all these states not to allow a Kurdish independence movement. Because once it establishes itself in one country, it could spread to other countries. For this reason, Turkey is fighting Kurdish forces even outside its borders, because it wants to prevent a Kurdish state that could eventually lay claim to much of Turkey's current territory. Thus, a modern Kurdish state is unlikely to emerge any time soon, although it should be said that Kurds in northern Iraq do enjoy some autonomy.
A fifth of Turkey’s 85 million people are Kurds and last election, the main Kurdish party won 10 percent of the vote. This time, it has given a boost to the opposition, joining the alliance instead of fielding its own candidate. But it remains to be seen if Kurdish voters will rally behind opposition leader Kemal Kilicdaroglu in sufficient numbers.

Iranian border patrolmen are mercilessly hunting down young Kurds who try to smuggle cheap diesel oil across the border to Turkey. Ankara has said nothing, supposedly not wanting to strain relations with Tehran.The Iranian border patrol's most recent known victim was handed over to Turkish authorities in January. But Ankara has had little response to the captures and killings so far, turning a largely deaf ear to protests from relatives and human rights activists. Turkey imports more than one third of its oil and natural gas from Iran, so it likes to keep relations cosy. The EU is prodding Turkey to change its policies toward Iran and improve the economic circumstances of the region's Kurds. For more go to 🤍
The civil war in Iraq is creating new opportunities for Kurds in the north of the country. They are becoming an example for many of their fellow Kurds over the border in Turkey. Many Kurds in Turkey are looking forward with hope and concern at events in Iraq. As the militant group ISIS continues its push to take Baghdad, the Kurds in autonomous regions are consolidating more and more power. For some time now, there's been talk of an independent Kurdish state that would extend beyond the borders of Iraq. For more go to 🤍
The Kurds are an ancient and noble people who are now the primary “boots on the ground” against ISIS in the Middle East. They are 35 million strong worldwide, the largest people group on earth without their own homeland. In this stirring talk, Stephen Mansfield tells the story of the Kurds and does so, surprisingly, through the lives of three women. Stephen Mansfield is a New York Times bestselling author who first rose to global attention with his groundbreaking book, The Faith of George W. Bush, a bestseller that Time magazine credited with helping to shape the 2004 U.S. presidential election. He has written celebrated biographies of Barak Obama, Booker T. Washington, George Whitefield, Winston Churchill, Pope Benedict XVI, and Abraham Lincoln, among others. Mansfield’s latest book, The Miracle of the Kurds, is a timely introduction to the Kurdish people that reached bookstores just as Kurdish troops began standing heroically against the evils of ISIS in the Middle East. The book has been named “Book of the Year” by Rudaw, the leading Kurdish news service. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at 🤍

Die Autonome Region Kurdistan im Irak könnte drohende Versorgungsengpässe von Öl und Gas in Europa kompensieren, die durch den Ukrainekrieg und die Russland-Sanktionen drohen. Österreich hat im vergangenen Jahr einen Rekordwert an Importen von fossilen Brennstoffen aus dem Irak bezogen, primär aus der Region Kurdistan. Erdöl im Wert von über 700 Mio. US-Dollar gelangte 2021 aus Kurdistan durch eine Pipeline über die Türkei nach Österreich. Doch die vom Irak anerkannte Autonomie-Region Kurdistan verfügt nicht nur über große Mengen an Erdöl. Schätzungen zufolge verfügt das irakische Kurdistan auch über Gas-Reserven von bis zu 7 Bio. Kubikmetern, die als Alternative zum russischen Gas angesehen werden. Denn Exporte auf dem Landweg durch die Türkei wären deutlich billiger als Offshore-Gasfelder. Theoretisch eine gute Alternative für die EU und Österreich. Doch die politische Dynamik zwischen der Region Kurdistan, dem Nachbarland Türkei und dem Irak ist kompliziert. Vor allem inner-irakische Unstimmigkeiten zwischen der Regional-Verwaltung und der Zentralregierung in Bagdad lassen Zweifel aufkommen über zukünftige Investitionen in die Energie-Ressourcen der Region.

(10 Oct 2019) Kurdish politician Ilham Ahmed on Thursday called on EU countries to freeze all diplomatic relations with Ankara and to recall their ambassadors after Turkey launched a military operation against Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria. Speaking at a press event at the European Parliament in Brussels, Ahmed urged the international community to take action and to stop what she described as a humanitarian crisis. "We want an urgent intervention on this crisis and this attack should be stopped immediately and the airspace should be closed for Turkish flights so that air attacks can be stopped," said Ahmed. "There is a very grave humanitarian crisis in the region," she added. Ahmed also asked the United States to help to resolve the crisis and find a political solution through dialogue. She added: "we dont forget the efforts of the United States and the international coalition as they were beside us during the fight against Islamic State." Turkey's invasion of northeastern Syria began on Wednesday after US troops pulled back from the area, paving the way for Turkey's assault on Syrian Kurdish forces, long been allied with the US. Turkey says it intends to create a "safe zone" that would push Kurdish militia away from its border and eventually allow the repatriation of up to two million Syrian refugees. The Turkish invasion is widely condemned around the world. Find out more about AP Archive: 🤍 Twitter: 🤍 Facebook: 🤍 Instagram: 🤍 You can license this story through AP Archive: 🤍

#Breakingnews #Currentaffairs #Turkey #Kurdish #Syria Turkey says Kurdish armed groups in Syria ‘legitimate targets’ Ibrahim Kalin, the presidential spokesperson, tells Al Jazeera that Ankara will target the PKK, YPG and PYD Kurdish groups to protect its borders. The spokesperson for the Turkish presidency has told Al Jazeera that Kurdish armed groups in Syria are “legitimate targets”, and accused them of exploiting ties with the United States to justify their presence along Turkey’s border with Syria. In an interview with Al Jazeera, Ibrahim Kalin said Ankara is after the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and its offshoots the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Democratic Union Party (PYD) groups to protect its borders. Ankara has blamed the outlawed PKK, YPG and their affiliated groups for the November 13 Istanbul blast as well as previous attacks. The PKK has been waging a decades-long bloody armed rebellion for autonomy in Turkey’s southeast. Ankara, along with its NATO allies – the US and European Union – have declared the PKK a “terrorist” organisation. “For us, any and all PKK, PYD, YPG establishments, elements, posts, military points are legitimate targets for us,” Kalin said during the interview with the Talk to Al Jazeera programme, whether they are in Syria or Turkey. “They are legitimate targets because they are terrorist organisations,” he continued. “We go after them to protect our borders. We don’t target Russian or American soldiers or military posts in Syria or anywhere else.” Kalin went on to say that the PKK, PYD, and YPG “elements” have in the past used American and the Syrian regime flags to “protect themselves”. “That itself shows the extent of the PYD and YPG using their alliance with the United States to legitimise their own presence in northern Syria,” he said. The presidential spokesperson said that the recent “terrorist” attack on Istiklal Street in Istanbul prompted Turkey to respond. The perpetrator, a Syrian woman of Kurdish descent, was trained by Kurdish fighters there, the government said. “Our initial response was to coordinate and conduct a number of air operations,” Kalin said. “And of course, depending on the threat level as assessed by our intelligence and our air defence ministry and the related agencies, we will go after these terrorists, whether from the air or from the ground.” Turkey has ramped up its shelling and air raids on northern Syria in recent weeks and has been preparing a ground invasion against the YPG, a majority-Kurdish force that dominates the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) based in Syria. Ankara has reportedly targeted several military sites belonging to SDF in Syria’s Raqqa. breaking news berita terkini live news world news nightly news News daily current affairs current affairs 2022 current affairs today Current affairs turkey recipe thanksgiving turkey kurds syria Turkey vs Kurdish

Subscribe here: 🤍 A group of around 25 Kurdish supporters of Abdullah Ocalan stormed the plenary hall of the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Kurdish activists interrupted the meeting chanting to demand the release of Ocalan, founder of the PKK, detained since 1998 in the maximum security prison on the Turkish island of Imrali where he is serving a life sentence. Security members approached to break up the protest, but some activists climbed over the protective windows threatening to throw themselves on the seats of the MEPs. The vice president on duty, Pina Picierno, was forced to suspend the session. Subscribe here: 🤍 Around a dozen Kurdish activists launched a protest on Wednesday in the European Parliament on the 24th anniversary of Turkey's arrest of their revered leader Abdullah Ocalan. The debate session was halted and MEPs left the chamber as the protesters brandished banners bearing Ocalan's image and shouted slogans hostile to Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. "They are pro-PKK activists," MEP Bernard Guetta told AFP, referring to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), banned in Turkey and blacklisted as a terrorist organisation in the EU. Guetta said the protesters were on an upper deck above the Strasbourg chamber, some sitting on a balustrade and dangling their legs above the parliament's floor. Ocalan is the best-known leader of Kurdish rebellion in Turkey, but was arrested in Kenya by Turkish agents on February 15, 1999 and sentenced to death in June of the same year. Now 73, his sentence was reduced to life in prison in 2002 and supporters continue to demand his release. Last week, PKK militants still fighting in Turkey announced a temporary halt to their operations during rescue work after the massive earthquake that struck southeastern Turkey and parts of Syria. A group of Kurds interrupted the plenary session at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, protesting and demanding freedom for jailed Kurdish politician Abdullah Öcalan on Wednesday (15 February). Öcalan is the founder of Kurdistan’s Workers Party (PKK), who has been detained for more than 20 years in Turkey on terrorism charges. EU lawmakers who were participating in a key debate on the EU’s Green Deal Industrial Plan for the Net-Zero Age were evacuated and the session suspended until further notice. Protestors shouted “Freedom for Öcalan” and launched some objects into the hemicycle, most likely papers with some written messages, according to a Parliament source who witnessed the event. On 8 February, a similar protest demanding Öcalan’s release took place in the square in front of the EU Parliament. The Kurdish issue in Turkey and in the region of Rojava (Northern Syria) is a historical regional problem that has always created deep instability in the heart of the Middle East. Kurds in Turkey account for around 18% of the total population and the cohabitation between the Turkish government and the Kurds has always been uneasy. The PKK, founded in 1974, is considered a terrorist organisation by many EU member states due to their controversial practices of protests promoting the Kurdish cause, which included attacks, guerrilla and kidnappings. In October 2019, Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan declared war on Rojava, the Northern Syria region controlled by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), composed of different ethnic groups with a significant presence of Kurds. Rojava is known for its innovative implementation of deliberative democracy, called “democratic conferederalism”, a political system based on self-organisation of different councils, which discuss and make decisions on community issues, based on inclusivity of all minorities and a cooperative ecology. The theoretical aspect of democratic confederalism was invented by Öcalan himself. Erdogan applies a zero-tolerance policy to the Kurdish question and has used it as a political card in his relations with the EU. Turkey is currently putting obstacles to Sweden’s bid to join NATO because of the Swedish approach to the Kurdish question, as Stockholm has been rather favourable to the possible self-determination of the Kurds, a major red line for Turkey. When Turkey started the war with Rojava in 2019, Erdogan weaponised migration, saying that if the EU made any efforts to stop the war, he would open the borders and allow migrants kept in Turkey to access Europe.

The Kurdish region of northern Iraq has the capacity to make up for at least some of the energy shortfall in Europe, Kurdish Prime Minister Masrour Barzani said on Monday. Barzani told an industry conference in Dubai that Kurdistan would soon become an important source of energy that would meet global demand and it would export to Turkey in the near future. #eudebates the unique initiative aiming to promote debate, dialogue, knowledge, participation and communication among citizens. #Iraq #Gas #Oil #Russia #Kurdistan #KURDS Kurdistan has energy capacity to help Europe: Iraqi Kurdish PM We will become a net exporter of gas to the rest of Iraq, Turkey, and Europe in the near future, and help meet their energy security needs. Already we have an export oil capacity which acts as an essential economic lifeline for us and a vital potential supply for our partners. I’ve also had talks with the federal government of Iraq, Turkey, and the Gulf countries about the regional railway network. I believe that this could be transformational for Iraq and the region, creating new trade routes and another window for regional cooperation. To meet his agenda we will need help, the support of our friends, many of whom are here in this room, and the courage of our partners to overcome their inhibitions. A strong, economically independent Kurdistan is no threat to its neighbors or to our partners in Baghdad. In fact, it is the opposite. We have demonstrated time and again our strength of purpose and our loyalty to our friends. We are a people of our word. If we act as a united front, the challenges that affect us all can be mitigated. We can, and will, help countries of our region and beyond meet their energy needs, as well as consolidating our own society. As we continue to develop our oil and gas potential, we will retain a focus on renewable. The shift towards renewable energy is both a noble cause and an economic necessity. Renewable energy costs have fallen year on year. Governments have increasingly encouraged, and in some cases financed, the pivot to renewables. But I also remember—I also remember well that over a decade ago analysts warned that oil-dependent states and governments would be condemned to economic freefall, lest they pivot to renewables—that it was now or never to wean off oil and gas. They even had a name for it, the end of the fossil fuel era. And yet, today a conflict on the European continent has exposed the fallacy of that prediction. I should make it clear in this forum that we in Kurdistan have the capacity now to make up for at least some of the shortfalls of oil in Europe, if our partners in Baghdad are prepared to work with us. So today I want to be realistic about our needs and cautious in our assessment. I have no doubt that oil and gas will remain an essential part of the energy mix of the foreseeable future. And although I recognize that we will inevitably wean off dependence on an exclusive source of revenue and growth, it will not happen overnight. EITHNE TREANOR: And I believe they certainly will do. Majid, when we look at the potential for gas—you’re the only gas operator, so to speak, here. And again, the prime minister talks about that. I think one theme we’re hearing at this Atlantic Council too is the tremendous opportunity for gas. And we look at the situation in Europe. We look at what’s happening in Russia. Is there enough gas there? And is there the potential that actually gas from Kurdistan could one day be coming and servicing the European market? MAJID JAFAR: Yes. So this point about the global energy security, which has come to the fore, of course, because of the conflict in Europe, and we’re absolutely hearing that all day today, in every panel session, I would say. And I think the role that the Kurdistan region plays—first of all, on oil. Half a million barrels a day of oil and the potential to increase that is critical for current oil markets. And then on the gas side, as I said, we will be at, you know, a bcf a day within a couple of years, and covering the domestic needs within the Kurdistan region. Oil producers who felt like outcasts at the COP 26 climate conference last year are now being treated like superheroes because their supplies are in strong demand, UAE energy minister Suhail al-Mazrouei said on Monday at an industry event. Mazrouei suggested it was not possible to underinvest and preach renewables and then ask for output boosts during a crunch long-term planning is needed. “I think in COP 26 all the producers felt they were uninvited and unwanted but now we are again superheroes, it’s not going to work like that,” he said. Resource-rich developing nations have often pushed back against calls for a rapid move away from fossil fuels, arguing for a more orderly transition. The United Arab Emirates will work with OPEC+ to make sure the energy market is stable, he said.
Kurdistan doesn't exist. At least not as an internationally recognised state. But why not? Given that there have been numerous opportunities for a Kurdish state to spring up, why didn't it happen? Why isn't there a Kurdistan?
