Netanyahu: World Should Take Care of Kurds' Future

(AFP-Daily Mail-UK) Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday said Israel had "great sympathy" for Kurdish aspirations and that the world should concern itself with their wellbeing. Speaking at a memorial ceremony for Israeli tourism minister Maj.-Gen. Rehavam Zeevi, assassinated by Palestinians in Jerusalem in 2001, he said Zeevi went on a secret mission to Iraq's autonomous Kurdish region in the 1960s and supervised setting up an Israeli army field hospital there. "The visit made a deep impression on him. He came face to face with warm expressions of support for Israel which continue to this day. The Kurds demonstrate national maturity and international maturity. We have very great sympathy for their desires and the world needs to concern itself with their safety and with their future."
