Hear! Hear!

"The Kurds practice a moderate form of Islam, have a democracy with regular elections, and are blessed with what The Economist calls “a raucous media” and “a boisterous parliament” (if our cousins across the pond think the media and parliament is let-loose, it really must be). It is time the Kurds in northern Iraq were granted statehood and given greater military aid. This is the Muslim democracy we have been hoping for."

And from what I understand, The Kurdish culture does not treat women like chattel.

Canuck Guy, did you have a blog of your own at one time, or is my mind (such as it is) playing tricks on me?

I did for a short time but now for some reason, I can't post on it anymore. Even when I could access it, I was not very active.
