Default Palestinians vs. the Kurds

With all of the discussions about the Pals. right to a homeland, there seems to be a people who are fighting the same fight as the Pals., but seem to get little attention by comparison. Why isn't the world sending billions of dollars to the Kurds and trying to help them establish nation of their own?? What's the difference between the Kurds claim to the lands they want as a homeland and the Pals. claim?? The Kurds have a much stronger claim than the Pals. They haven't used the vicious tactics in their struggle for a homeland that the Pals. have. They have a gov't that isn't a kleptocracy as the Pals. do. They aren't dependent on foreign money for their very survival. So why is there such huge and vocal support for a Pal. homeland and comparative silence on the subject of a Kurd homeland???

I agree. I don't have an answer. It doesn't mean the Pals don't deserve their own state. Kurds do also. It should be either/or It should be yes to both. I am not the POTUS or I would support both having their own homelands. Did you think I would have a problem with that?
