Parent Category: Languages and Cultures
Kurdish language and culture dates back to the ancient Kingdom of Corduene. It is still prominent in areas of the mideast. The geo-cultural area known as Kurdistan is home to 25 to 30 million Kurdish people. This area includes Southeastern Anatolia, Upper Mesopotamia, Zagros, Iran, Iraq, Turkey, and Syria.

Pan-Arabism did not do much in changing Arab-Kurdish perceptions. Before the Pan-Arabist period (the 1950s and earlier) the Kurds had already attempted to secure an independent state and gained the ire of the Nationalist Iraqis. The Kurds were stuck between the two sides of a doublethink ideology....

Richard the Lionhearted didn't win. Saladin won. He did make a treaty with the Christians though. They could make the pilgrimage to Jerusalem and enter the city unarmed.

Palestinians are considered as stateless because Israel has taken their land that belongs in fact to Palestinians. And as America is the leader of the world, as it is also in the side of israel, it doesn't allow Palestine to be an independent state. Israel is trying to take all the land. As for the...
The people who go by the name Kurds do exist and live in an area covering Iran, Iraq, Syria and Turkey. So there is a 'nation' called Kurds but they have no country of their own.

Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Turkey. Some are in Armenia and Germany.
According to the World Evangelization Research Center, less than 1 percent are Christian. Statistics on minority groups throughout the region are difficult to obtain. Of the overall 35 million Kurds, there are less the 35,000 Christian Kurds, which makes Christians less than 0.1% of the Kurdish...
Sunni and Shiite are different sects of Islam, but Kurds are an  ethnic group. Kurds are predominantly Sunni Muslims (although there  are minorities of Shiite Kurds, especially in Iran, and non-Muslim  Kurds as well). As a result, it is incorrect to call the Kurds a  "religious faction" since...
I think it was Mustafa Barzani.. He was a great man though RiP =[
Most of the "bad things" about Saladin reflect on the fact that, to  his enemies, he was not a Christian and was a better person and  leader than the Christian rulers he was fighting. It should be  remembered that Saladin did not kill the innocent Christian  inhabitants of cities he captured,...
Their customs are they like to wear bright clothes and they don't  eat a lot of meat.   -Sorry but that's a generalization; nomadic and village dwellers  wear "bright clothes" it's called Kurdish clothes by the way. What  do you mean by customs? Like traditions or values. We respect  elders,...

The Kurds are an ethnic group living in Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. They are Muslim, but they are not Arabs. Although a distinct ethnic group, they have never had their own country. There is a strong faction that is pushing for self-rule, a situation that is causing political unrest.
There is a misunderstanding here. The victims of the genocide in World War 1 were the Armenians. Kurds were encouraged by the Ottoman Turkish government to act as perpetrators.
The Second Crusade took place from 1147-1149. It began after Muslim Turks recaptured one of the Crusader states. This crusade ended in defeat for the Crusaders largely because the French and German armies failed to work together.Until the late 1100s, other Crusader states remained under European...

Kurdistan is located in four nations: Iraq, Syria, Iran, and Turkey.
Answer 1   There was never a state called Kurdistan, so therefore it has never  really been divided. A more correct way to put it, is that it has  never been united. During the fall of the Ottoman Empire it seemed  like there was going to be a Kurdistan for the first time in  history, but it...

Saladin isn't bad but he did chop off a Christians head.But he had a reason for it.Normally he was a wise,generous and thoughtful man who considered other peoples feelings.
I'd have to guess a Kangal. Since a hybrid is a cross between a wolf and a dog, it would depend primarily on which breed of dog the wolf was crossed with. Generally, I think most wolves are crossed with Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskies or German Shepherd Dogs to retain the "wolf" appearance....
No. "Kurdistan" is the region of Eastern Turkey/Northern Iraq where  the ethnic group known as the Kurds live, but it's not a recognized  country.

Saladin was a Muslim and had a war known as a crusade against king Richard. The war was to fight for their holy land which was Jerusalem.

King Richard the lion heart fell sick for three months. During that time the Europeans suffered from lack of organization and no definite leader, so Saladain retook Jerusalem.
He forgave the Jews and Christin population and declare peace for them, instead of slaughtering them. That's what I know. Saladin creates a agreement. Male, ten years old and over, was to pay ten besants (money) for the practice of holding a prisoner or item to extort money or property to secure...
There is no modern nation in which Kurds make up even a 50% majority. If Kurdistan were created in the area indicated by yellow on the linked map, Kurds would form over 2/3 the population in that country.
IranI would guess that the highest population of Kurds is in Turkey. The next highest is probably Iraq.
Kurdistan is a term applied to regions of southeastTurkey, northeast Syria, northern Iraq, and northwest Iran in referenceto the Kurdish ethnic majority who live on that land.

That's not really a valid question since Shia and Sunni are beliefes and Kurd is a race of people, but anyway the Kurds are not causing any trouble at all - so that leaves Shias and Sunnis. Between them the sunnis are causing ALL the problem against the US. Take Al-Qaida (sunnis) for instance they...
Saladin was not in a crusade. He was a great Muslim commander who fought against the crusades of the christians who ruled Jerusalem.

Ive seen it spelt as Chorni but im not sure what the correct spelling is. If you mean the word im thinking its Hello. My boyfriend always say Chorni Bashe.The word you are thinking about is probably "çonî" as it is spelled with Latin letters. The word means "how are you".
choni mean hi or some time we use it as how are you.
Basically, he gassed them all! (gas was supplied by US for use in  previous wars). This was done in the 1980s and 1990s.
The Anfal Campaign was the name assigned by Saddam Hussein, President of Iraq, for his genocidal attack on a number of Kurdish tribes in northern Iraq (southern Kurdistan), wherein over 180,000 Kurds were gassed to death.
When speaking of Kurdistan, it is typically assigned the status of the area of Northern Iraq, Southern Turkey, Western Iran and Eastern Syria. The Kurds there do not have an officially recognized country, but the ones in the mountainous regions enjoy relative autonomy, but are still under the...
The wars going on Kurdistan are more connected to those going on in  their host countries. For example, the problems in Iraqi Kurdistan  are traceable to the Iraqi Insurgency in the wake of the Iraq War  of 2003-2011. The problems in Syrian Kurdistan are traceable to the  Syrian Civil War, which...

No. Saladin was a Arab Sultan, Richard was an English King. They fought each other.
Most Kurds are Sunnis, so this question makes little sense as put. When the "Media" refers to the conflict between "Sunnis and Kurds" they are using the word "Sunni" as shorthand for saying "Sunni Arabs" in order to distinguish them from "Shiite Arabs". There are linguistic, cultural, and ethnic...
his farther name was ayub.
Because Saladin broke down Richards walls to his city and Saladin  had to pay 200,000 gold pieces and when Saldin ran into problems  while trying to pay he finally surrendered.
saladin had a total of 900,000 men 
To be honest the bad things he did are an opinion from christians to a Muslim they are good .

As Iraqi Kurdistan is the only one with an official government, I assume you are talking about that one. Iraqi Kurdistan is a parliamentary democracy with a regional assembly that consists of 111 seats and is consists of four provinces. There is an elected president, who is currently Masoud Barzani.
saladin's nickname was merciful
Saladin felt quite neutrally about the oposing side during the Crusades. Some people found it odd, but Saladin would send baskets of fruit and water over to Richard the Lion-Heart during their war. Saladin even gave King Richard some ice when he had a migrane from the intense heat of the Holy Land....
Kurds have lived in an area of Turmoil,war and blood for hundreds of years,the source of this blood is the co-ordination of nations(especially Turkey) by England to use the Kurdish region as a passage for drugs such as Heroin(94% of UK Heroin controlled by kurds who are controlled by Britain) and...
I think the film was called Saladin. Made in 1963. There are clips of it on YouTube. A tiny part of footage from it was used when former Monty Python member Terry Jones made a series about the Crusades. I'm uncertain of the Aleppos connection but hey, just how many movies about Saladin could have...

First of all Kurdish is not a religion but a race . So you can find among the kurds , a Muslim , Christian , Jewish or what ever other religion The Kurds speak one language but with many different dialects due to the zone
Some can treat them extremely badly. They believe women are objects  and make rules and if the women don't do as they are told they may  kill them through shooting or live burial. Some also beat up women  and girls .    Most Iraqi Kurds have the same mentality. They believe women in the  UK...
