    An excellent delineation of the aims. I would love to be part of a panel discussion live via Skype, or take part in any conference taking place in Australia. In advance, if there aren’t any branches in Australia, perhaps I can be the first to found it. Further, with respect to the aims outlined, the first two has to be reiterated time and time again to draw attention to the importance of the first that would bring about unification of the Kurds, and the second to bring awareness to the international community about the Kurdish cause and struggle.

    However, as a Kurd, I reiterate the call for an independent Kurdish state. The importance of nationality is not negligible in the forecast of world politics, and its implication for the future of the Kurds in a hostile region within which the Kurds are divided as minorities and subjected to nothing but repression, massacres, ethnic cleansing, and genocides. As for the other points put forward as aims of the Kurdish cause, there is no disagreement.
