Kurdistan between illusion and truth . Part (11)

Before we begin we must know two places mentioned in the previous previous articles : (Ibn Omar Island).

It is attributed to “Abdul Aziz bin Omar” from the people of the Abbasid era, and it was named an island because the Tigris River is surrounded by water on three sides.

And the second place: (Bhutan), which is also southeastern Turkey.Now we start with the article: We said that the peoples of Zagros are (Caucasian) of origin, according to Orientalists, and the Kurdish historian (Muhammad Zaki Beck) does not object to their saying, but we see him saying : “Then (Arya) became under the influence of the migrations that occurred in the ninth and eighth centuries BC .

But he goes back and says: Or they were a direct lineage of the second class, that is, the Indo-Aryan (Indo-European) claims as most historians and specialists claim, and he says : What is beyond doubt is that the first theory of the ancientity of the Kurdish origin in the old one is a very strong theory but still needs some of the evidence and archaeological evidence fully clarify it, and perhaps we will get these evidence soon, thanks to the continuous archaeological discoveries.

But we comment on the words of the largest Kurdish historian of the modern era, we say : So we can’t confirm if we are waiting for archaeological discoveries, saying: How to be very strong as long as you need evidence and archaeological evidence! We see him lost because he returns on a journey to search for roots between the sands (geo-demographic) for an atom of sand whose source he does not know from where he came and mixed with raging rocks from the sand ?! He says : “And there are some orientalists who see that the Kurdish people originally came from the Indian countries to Kurdistan in the second half of the seventh century BC “.

But he objects to this saying, saying: “We should know that these opinions and ideas are only purely theories and jurisprudence, because we have not yet obtained a valuable document on which we categorically rely on in resolving the issue of the origin of the Kurds.”

In the year (1930) A.D. the orientalist (Siezer) wrote a book entitled : (The People of Mesopotamia) and printed it in Boston in which he tried to expel the cloud about the origin of the Kurdish people when he came with valuable documents and scientific evidence proving that the current Kurdish people, returning to its origin to the dynasty Peoples of (Koto, Koti, or Judy) which are named after one name that is very well known in ancient history.

There are ancient and ancient cities in Iraqi Kurdistan and Turkey, such as: (Aridi Wani, Maysir, Izmiri, Dagara, Harhar, Karsharuken, Atlila, Kinabo, Khobushkaya …) and many archaeological hills, perhaps helping to uncover the deep roots of the Kurdish people.

And the researcher (Zaki Beck) continues the journey of searching for the origins of the Kurds in a investigative work, and he stands with two opinions.

The first sees the Kurds as part of the Persians, and the second sees them as part of the Arabs.

(And the origin of them seen by the Persians according to the history books that they are from the son of Kurd bin Esfandiar bin Manouchehr, including Albazngan and Alchhojan and Alshangan and Tchlorda and Buddhism and the Luray and Gurkan and Kikan, and many others).

We find this at Al-Masoudi in his history (Meadows of Gold). Al-Masoudi continues, and he says: Some of the Kurds and the knowledgeable of them have gone from among those we have seen while we mentioned from the country that they are (who was born from Kurd bin Sa`sa ibn Harb ibn Hawazin).

And among the Kurds are those who go to be from Rabia and then from Bakr bin Wael; they left in ancient times because of the wars that were between them to the land of the Persians, and they dispersed to them and changed their language, and they became peoples and tribes.

Al-Masoudi elaborates on them a lot, as stated in his book (Al-Murooj Al-Zahab, vol. 1-78-79).
