What do Kurds celebrate?
The primary faith in Kurdistan is Islam (prodominately Sunni Muslims), so they celebrate the Islamic holy days. However, Nawruz (Persian New Year) is the most significant holiday and is celebrated in Spring.
Generally, No. Of the overall 35 million Kurds, there are less the 35,000 Christian Kurds, which makes Christians less than 0.1% of the Kurdish population. Understandably, Christian Kurds celebrate Christmas, but Muslim, Jewish, Yazidi, Zoroastrian, and non-religious Kurds do not celebrate Christmas.
Kurds are ethnically related to Greeks, A team of German, Indian and Greek specialists published the results of their research that showed that the Greeks were distant ethnic relatives of the Kurds. The Greeks and kurds according to the research team have common ancestors who resided in the area between the Kurdish areas of Turkey and Syria, (northern syrian kurds).
Kurds, Arabs, and Persians are ethnic groups that are primarily focused in the Middle East. Kurds are overwhelmingly Sunni Muslims, but there are minorities of Shiite Kurds (especially in Iran), Alevi Kurds, Yezidi Kurds, Yarsan Kurds, and other religious minorities. There are some Jewish Kurds who predominantly live in Israel. Arabs are predominantly Sunni Muslims, but there are large minorities of Shiite Muslim Arabs, especially in Iraq, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait. There are also…
Well, the Kurdish nation is originally of Semitic Descent, the Kurds lived in ancient Mesopotamia which is modern Iraq. As the Babylonian Empire began to grow they pushed the semitic Kurds to the caucasus to the south of Russia. Their blood mixed with the Nords and Aryans even their Language Changed to an Indo-Eoropean language which is now modern day Kurdish. Now, the Kurds are a mix of predominantly Semitic blood and some Aryan. It…
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 differences between Arabs and Kurds.
Kurds are only troublesome for Iraq because Iraqi Arabs are not interested in recognizing that the Kurds are a unique and different people from them but still worthy of respect. Iraqi Kurds, generally, have better statistics (quality of life, lifespan, less insurgency, more tolerance, more scientific and business acumen) per capita than Iraqi Arabs. The problem comes from the Arab side vis à vis Kurds, not the other way around.
The Kurds have never had their own government in Iraq separate from the Iraqi government since the independence of the Hashemite Kingdom of Iraq in 1923 (and subsequent Iraqi States). However, Kurds had autonomy under the Ottoman Empire in what would become northern Iraq (or Iraqi Kurdistan). The Kurds have never had complete independence from the Iranians, Turks, Iraqis, or Syrians.
The way the question is posed is difficult to read. Kurds are humans and therefore they cannot be a state, the same way that Americans cannot be a state. Americans have a State called the USA and Kurds wish that they had a state called Kurdistan. What unites the Kurds as a people or a nation is their language, culture, history, religion, and their warmth and hospitality. Currently, Kurds consider themselves a stateless people or…
Kurds are considered a nation because they are an ethnicity with unified traditions and a historic homeland. They are considered stateless because they do not control any independent territories that would conceivably belong to a Kurdish Country. Therefore, the Kurds are considered a stateless nation.
