Öcalan isnt a kurd[edit]

Read his Biography. No sources exist about his kurdish heritage and the few sources that do exist about his persona, claims he is of turkish origin. -- (talk) 23:58, 24 March 2015 (UTC)


Please add Kurdish population in Israel to the population count. There are 200,000 Kurdish Jews in Israel, and there are hundreds of documents, videos, etc. in which they identify themselves as such. Rudaw, a major Kurdish TV network, is currently holding a reportage on the Kurds in Israel.

The Kurdish population in Israel is much larger than most of the other diaspora populations listed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:22, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I see it has been added. ~ Zirguezi 21:49, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
I removed it and the section about Judaism. The Jews of Kurdistan are ethnic Jews, not Kurds. Could fit on Kurdistan, not here. I did start an section about this earlier and User:هیوا agreed. User:Ferakp then readded the section. Shmayo (talk) 14:38, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

It is almost impossible to say that Jews of Kurdistan are ethnic Jews not Kurds. They are called Jews of Kurdistan because they were speaking also other languages than Kurdish. But it was usual to speak their own languages and mix them with other languages. This happened also in Europe. Also it's known that first [Kurds]] were converted to Judaism over thousand year before Islam was founded. So it's a little bit weird to not mention Judaism. But according to Israeli news, they are working with it at this moment. I believe they will publish history of Kurdish Jews next year.

They are called Jews of Kurdistan because they are Jews from Kurdistan. Of course we have this problem. But that doesn't make them Kurdish. These "Kurdish Jews" are sometimes called "Assyrian Jews" too, speaking an Aramaic dialect just like the Assyrians. Interesting - please post it here then. Shmayo (talk) 17:14, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Kurd are an ethnic Iranian group in middle east (talk) 12:26, 14 April 2015 (UTC) Kurd are an ethnic group in middle east.

The Iranian word should not be there. it is an referenced fact.

If you look the second paragraph references 39, says the origin of Kurds are unclear. How can define that kurd an Iranian origin. You are contradicting your own definition.

Therefore, I kindly request to remove Iranian word there.
