On Monday the Kurdish people of Iraq voted in a referendum on independence from Iraq. Of the 3.5 million Kurds who voted, 91% voted in favor of self-determination. The Iraqi prime minister has ruled out any possibility of a Kurdish secession, however.
The Kurds are a stateless people, who inhabit adjacent regions of Turkey, Iraq and Iran. All ethnonationalists should support the creation of a homogeneous Kurdish homeland in the Middle East. Even though they share the Islamic religion with their neighbors, Kurdish Islam differs from Turkish or Arabic Islam, a reality which often leads to conflict.
Beyond the desire for peace in the Middle East, Western Christians have very little interest in a Kurdish homeland itself. But it is a matter of principle to support self-determination for all peoples, regardless of race or religion, in their own homeland (Acts 17:26). This should, of course, be said in a qualified sense, for if peaceful coexistence becomes impossible, this support should be withdrawn (Romans 12:18).
I affirm a practical view in handling the racial and ethnic diversity of multicultural societies that may be unpopular with some Kinists: I favor the creation of ethnic homelands for peoples in areas where they have acquired historic rights via multigenerational settlement. I would certainly support black and Indian homelands in North America, just as I desire it for my own people. If this meant that these foreign peoples would leave our own homelands alone, then it would be a 100% improvement on what we currently have. While this involves conceding some territory, I don’t see a practical alternative. You can talk all you like about relocating millions of people back to where their ancestors came from, but this is not practical and perhaps even immoral.
White people don’t have their territory divinely revealed and laid out like the Israelites of old. Our duty, like that of all people, e.g. these Kurds, is to live in our own homelands, preserve our own people as covenantal units, and live peacefully with others. I support the most practical means of achieving this.
