Kur­dled Dreams

Newsweek International - - NEWSWEEK - CHRIS MC­GRATH

Kurds gath­ered in north­ern Iraq at a rally on Septem­ber 22, days be­fore they voted on whether to cre­ate their own state—a dream of Kur­dish na­tion­al­ists for more than a cen­tury. As of pub­li­ca­tion, the results were un­clear, but the ref­er­en­dum faced strong ob­jec­tions from many in the re­gion who fear that in­de­pen­dence would fur­ther desta­bi­lize an al­ready chaotic Mid­dle East.
