Abstract

 

This research has reviewed the political developments of the Iraqi Kurdistan through investigating its political and historical background which provides deeper understanding of the strategies of the Kurdish national movements to protect the Kurdish culture and to develop its political rights in Iraq. The Kurdish political problem, as a part of Iraq, has been going on for over hundred years. Since the establishment of the Iraqi state in 1921, the Kurds have been experiencing a terrible treatment by the Baghdad governments. For example, the Iraqi politicians sought ethnic cleansing process in which they imposed the Arab identity on the Iraqi nations and on its components. As a consequence, the Kurds lost the sense of Iraqi identity and the loyalty to Iraq. Despite the overthrow of Saddam's regime in 2003 through the international coalition led by the United States, and the establishment of a new Iraqi government formed by the Iraqi oppositions and the Kurds, the Arabs, particularly the Shia component, dominated the power at the expense of the other parties. This indicates that a peaceful coexistence of the Iraqi components is illogical and an independent state for the Kurds in Iraq would be the best recourse.
