Falsified information[edit]

I deleted "Large number of Kurds in Iran show no interest in Kurdish nationalism,[158] especially Shia Kurds who even vigorously reject idea of autonomy, preferring direct rule from Tehran.[158][175] Iranian national identity is questioned only in the peripheral Kurdish Sunni regions.[181]" and replaced with "Large number of Kurds in Iran are neutral to Kurdish nationalism and barely one-third support the government especially Shia Kurds who even vigorously reject idea of autonomy, preferring direct rule from Tehran. Iranian national identity is questioned mainly in the Kurdish Sunni regions"

The source doesn't say that large number of Kurds in Iran show no interest in Kurdish nationalism, it says: ...Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran (KDPI) must be set less promising factors. Barely one third of Iranian Kurds fell inside the republic, and of these a large number, perhaps a majority, remained passively neutral. Most, tribal Kurds still had no interest in Kurdish nationalism...

This means large number of Kurd in Iran are neutral to Kurdish nationalism. With Tribal Kurds he meant the Kurds in 80' and 90'. It is not possible you decide from it that large number of Kurds in Iran show no interest in Kurdish nationalism. Also, this source says, large number of the Kurd support autonomy in Iran.

Deism??[edit]

The religion category in this infobox mentions a deist minority among the Kurds. Can anybody provide a source for this? I haven't been able to find any references, and it seems on the face of it implausible that deism, a philosophical position associated with a particular time and place in the western tradition, would have a more than negligible following among a people with a completely different philosophical tradition. It seems most plausible to me that a previous editor has mis-characterized 'secularism' as a political position with 'deism' as a philosophical position. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.165.8.63 (talk) 14:46, 7 February 2016 (UTC)

Kurdish Political Situation[edit]

Hello! I believe someone must state the current political situation of the Kurds; somewhere along the lines of their hostility and constant attacks against their fellow Christian neighbors in Iraq. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 205.154.39.203 (talk) 00:59, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
