Screw Palestine... Its Time for Kurdistan 

Here's a rather short blog post on something that makes complete sense to me...

Why do the Palestinians get to jump ahead of the Kurds?
...
Oh, one other thing. The Kurds have never blown up any busses full of civilians, never desecrated religious shrines, never mutilated 'enemy' corpses, never machine-gunned elementary schools, never sent teenagers in bomb vests to kill other teenagers at restaurants and coffee shops, and as far as I know, they have never tried to make a bomb filled with rat poison or HIV+ blood.
...
That's the problem with the Kurds. They spend their energy and talents on things like economic development, education, and infrastructure. They justy go ahead living their lives, farming, raising their kids, passing along their culture to new generations.

Well said. Normally in our society, we choose not to reward bad behavior. We don't negotiate with terrorists... at least that's what we keep saying. Except when it comes to the Palesitinians. That's somehow different. I say we give the Kurds what they deserve (and thumb our nose at Turkey in the process for screwing us in Iraq) and show the Palestinians what it really takes to deserve a state of your own.
