sha b Posted about 1 year ago Karima Bennoune: When people of Muslim heritage challenge fundamentalism "Kurdish people? Read some history and see how sassanids and byzantines thought about them as 'landless people of hills' 'the bandit herdsmen', drugs that is being smuggled into EU is smuggled into Turkey by Kurdish smugglers(in fact all smuggling is) the profits are used by terrorist organizations, these organizations were probably started with western financing before they got out of control(it is highly probable that they are still being controlled by a faction in U.S. though)And due to these organizations both Turkish and Kurdish people lost thousands of lives. Inside Turkey most organized crimes which contain violence is due to Kurdish Mafia. " ....Sorry, this is not about the main topic of this talk, but, would you mind elaborating on this? What is "history about Sassanids and Byzantines thinking of Kurds as 'the bandit herdsmen" referring to? is it me or did you just dismissed all Kurds, as bandits that have been bandits since Sassanids time? did you read your own closing remark?
