"My" Kurdistan

Kurdistan deserves to be. Period. The question is, will it manage to be Muslim but not Islamic? Will its women be free? If Kurdistan were to be just another backward, sexist, gagged society, then I would care not for it. But if, as I hope and expect, Kurdistan will be a truly free, truly democratic, truly open Muslim society then the west has a historical obligation to help it be.

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
