June was a good month for the Kurds.
That is if you subscribe to the Hollywood adage: “There’s no such thing as bad publicity.”
Kurds have had some bad news, for sure, but some good news too.
First the good news: “The Kurds and Iraq: A Winning Hand,” ran a headline in the usually stolid Economist magazine last month. Thomas Friedman of The New York Times went further and wrote, “Kurdistan,” without its “Iraqi” tail (as in Iraqi-Kurdistan), and likened us to Tunisia, as a hopeful example of what is decent in the crude Middle East.
