Kurds and the Jewish in the long History of Kurdistan

The Sami’s nation had come to Kurdistan two or three millenniums Before Christ (BC) were Acadian, Assyrian, Imuran, Aramian, Kanaani and Arab Babylon.

According to scientific research, Kurdistan has become a place of gathering different ideas, religions, and nations from a long time ago that is divided into three parts:

First: the nomad nations whose seeking the grassland for a betterment life became a major part of the Kurdistan population and they had a great role in progressing Kurdistan via culture, policy, etc. such as Mitanni, Midi, Elami and so on.

Second: another group came in various ways like animal husbandry; trading, military and religious then they became self-assertive on the Kurdistan land as an occupier force, they invaded Kurdistan such as Acadian, Assyrian, Persian, Arab, Turk, Tatar, etc. even the became a portion of Kurdish community but Kurdish people see them as an invade so far because they came to occupy Kurdistan not rebuild.

Third: those people who banished from their homelands like the Jewish people and other minorities. The Jewish have faced robbery and occupation by Babylon and Assyrian over history. This topic concentrates on the stabilizing of the Jewish people in Kurdistan and their relationship with the Kurdish nation and Kurdistan population.

It is significant to have information about the Jewish identity and their believing, the author says, the Jewish believes in a religion which practically is implemented in their daily life for a long while. Also, their religion accepts as a widespread religion at the ongoing time. They become a significant part of Kurdistan civilization currently and the design of their buildings become an efficient part of Kurdistan giant city's history like Kirkuk, Erbil, Sulaimani, Urfa, etc.

A strong relation has being felt between Kurd and the Jewish. The Sami’s nation had come to Kurdistan two or three millenniums Before Christ (BC) were Acadian, Assyrian, Imuran, Aramian, Kanaani and Arab Babylon. Most of the sources believed that the mutual point between Kurd and Jewish referred to Abraham because he accepts as a father of the Jewish nation and also most of the sources concentrated that Abraham was from Kurdistan who he was lived in Erbil and Mousel. Furthermore, the documentary evidence of Mary and Nozy in Kirkuk is witnessed on living Abraham and his sons during the Amurian era in 1500-2000 (BC).

Another evidence illustrated that the Assyrian famous king the third Shalm Alnasri from (842-859) (BC) who attacked Israel, as a result, a great number of Jewish people were captured in that attack then he brought them to Kurdistan and they stabilized, they had remained in Kurdistan till 1948 then they emigrated to Israel and the United States. It is worthy to say, the Media in 744 BC had their own state under the name of the kingdom.

From the first time of appearing of the Christian religion, there was Jewish in Kurdistan, particularly, under the governor of Rome. The powerful relation between Kurd and Jewish is not negotiable over history.

This relation becomes stronger day after the day even in the Zerdasht era the Jewish population in Kurdistan had ultimate freedom and religious diversity as well, especially in the Ardashir era from (226-240), besides, the Jewish had their own religious school while the formal religion was Zerdasht religion at that time.

Due to that reason, the Jewish stayed in Kurdistan until the appearance of Islam. In the fortieth of the 20 century, most of them returned to Israel. It is worthy to say Israeli Kurds introduce themselves as Kurdistani so far, also, strong emotion and sympathy can be seen between both sides. However, this strong relation doesn’t step toward a political coalition context that needs more work in order to formalize this relationship.
