HISTORY OF
KURDISTAN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

          Many peop1e have asked the question: ‘What are the origins of the Kurdish people?’

 

     The Arabs, Turks and Persians have always denied any separate Kurdish existence claiming that the Kurds are their descendants.

 

     The Kurdish people view themselves as being entirely separate from the above three nations and they want their own separate right of ownership regarding land, property and self-'government and so have fought for many years in order to achieve this.

 

     In the book ‘Kurdistan in the Shadow of history’, a geologist, Ralph Solecki, discovered in 1957 that civilisation existed over 30,000 years ago from a cave in Shanadar, in the centre of Kurdistan.

 

     Encyclopaedias have stated that the first grain of wheat was found growing near Kirkuk in Kurdistan. The Koran states that Adam and Eve ate from this wheat and that was the reason why they were thrown out of the Garden of Eden.

 

     The Bible states that God created four rivers for Adam and Eve and two of them are the Euphrates and the Dejela.  He created a garden close by for them.   Adam and Eve ate apples from that garden.

 

     The 'Look and Learn' magazine:

Issue 42 – date 3 – 11 - 1962  contains a map, which places Adam arid Eve on the lands of Kurdistan.

 

If readers are to believe the sources from both books and the above-mentioned magazine then it wills he revealed that these events took place in Kurdistan.

 

     The Bible also talks about Noah and his Ark and the story of the flood.  Noah landed on Ararat Mountain, which is to the North of Kurdistan.

 

     Noah started to rebuild his life with the aid of a rivulet from both the Euphrates arid the Dejela. 

 

     After a thousand years the aggression from the Semiotics in the south and the Indo-Europeans from the north tried to dominate the lards of his descendants - meaning the Kurdish people, which some historian say the med’s are the ancient of the Kurdish people.

 

     Kurdistan in the 20th century is a country divided among Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Syria and Azerbaijan, surrounded by Arabs, Persians and Turks.  It is bounded geographically by four seas, starting from the tributary of Hormuz in the south, up to the Caspian see in the northeast, to the Black sea on the northwest, up to the Mediterranean Sea in the west.

 

     Kurdistan is controlled by Arabs, Persians and Turks who between them have occupied vast areas of land and who continue to deprive the Kurds of their rightful ownership of territory.  Aggressors have ousted the Kurds.

 

     During three specific eras in history, occupation of Kurdish land has been as follows:

1.    1.    During the period of Oil exploration, the Persians and Arabs took control of all the oil-rich areas and denied the Kurds access to them.

 

2.    2.    The agricultural period witnessed the Turks and Arabs taking control of many areas of arable land.

 

3.    3.    With the dawning of Islam, essential routes of direct communication were taken over and the Kurds were ejected from these areas.
