Kurdpress- Zakho riots, mismanagement and lock of control over the incidents will both spoil Kurds and Kurdistan’s long- last fame for successful co-existence and peaceful with other race’s and religious sectors and also….
An Iranian proverb says Jesus and his religion and Moses and his religion. The well-know proverb in divers regions which points to people’s high spirit of compromise, cooperation and co- existence with other nation, races and different religious followers it most prominent geographical quick example can be found in Kurdistan, kurds and their hospitality with others.
Others who never felt “strangeness” and “otherness” among Kurds and If it’s been so, has not surly been that much and have never equaled anywhere else.
Latitudinally Kurdistan is a region which connects Iran plateau to Anataolia and somehow is a passway to tie Asia to Europe and longtitudely has linked Gurji and Caucus regions in the north to the Middle East in the south.
The geographical specialty has turned the region into a bridge for calm and unruffled crossings or an area for different races and nations’ peaceful settlement or struggles. Geographical Features of the region along with occurred-political events in its long labyrinthine history, which has eventually broken up the geography into four different regions in four contemporary neighboring countries has forced the land and its Kurdish inhabitants to host diverse races, nation’s religions and rituals, and has therefore made Kurdish identity decorated and flowered with other cultures and identities.
That picture of Kurdistan is quite seen in Iraqi region of Kurdistan where is home to folks with different Kurdish language accents, Turkman and Arabic language, religions including Islam, Izadi, Christian, Jewish, Zarathustran and Ashuri’s peaceful co- existence.
The peak of that peace co-existence was during the recent years especially after religions radical debates and discussions between different religions sects that on one hand change Iraq into a battlefield between radical Islam, Christians and Jews of the country and on the other hand was a Sunni- Shiite religious clash hub from 2005 to 2010, that thanks to its regional power and its cultural and historical above-mentioned background was quite stable and even a pleasing destination for radicalism- worn-out Christians in Baghdad.
The situation had a diplomatically seeable role in Kurdistan region’s position and improvement and Kurdish political leaders meeting with Pope in Vatican can be seen as a sign for that analyzable relation.
During the recent days riot clouds has darkened the sky of the region, riots which has set touristic centers and especially Christine- inclined centers on fire on one hand and has also burnt Kurdish Islamic Party offices down on the other hand.
Away from the reasons and allegations, different Iraqi groups accuse each other for having committed, it has to be noted that Zakho events and lock of their control and management will both undermine and paralyze Kurdistan and Kurdish people fame and stability in successful and peaceful co-existence with other races and religions and would harm Kurd’s fame in needed days, and will also knock the shaky newly founded democracy in the region down.
