To know a nation you have to read its history, study its culture and understand its situation. One of the goals of my web site is to help you to appreciate Kurdistan – the largest “stateless” nation in the world. We have been denied and ignored for a long time. We are still struggling to find friends and people who will understand us. My hope is that this site will help build understanding. I will be pleased if people learn something good and helpful for their lives from my words. It will mean that I am still living and able to serve people even though I am in prison.
