Please remove my name from this petition, I am against any partitioning of Iran. You can have Turkey, Iraq and Syria but not Iran.

What's so unique or good about Iran? If Kurds should have self-determination in Turkey, Iraq and Syria, why not in Iran? Iran is the Persian empire whose retreat under the Qajars was never completed. Its borders do not respect the territorial integrity of the non-Persian nations forced to be part of Iran without any democratic choice, such as Balochistan, Azerbaijan, Kurdistan, Al-Ahwaz, Turkmenistan. "Iranian" as an identity is a myth of the Pahlavi dynasty. The more these nations are...

Yes it is up to the Kurds and that is why I asked to have my name removed. The petition should state their goal openly, which it does not. I'm here to help Iran refugees and denounce the brutal dictatorship in Tehran. All refugees; Kurds, Ahwazi, Baluch, Azari, Turks, Persians, etc,,not to disect Iran. Thank you.

Also, Pahlavi is dead, It is not him imprisoning, raping and killing Iranians, it is Khamenei. Attacking a dead man is not going to resolve the problem at hand.

I used to believe that Iran could become a free democratic country that respected the rights of all its constituent national groups. But after many years of being involved in advocacy for ethnic rights, I realise this is impossible.

There is too much hatred and Persian chauvinism at the heart of Iranian nationalism, which was defined by the Pahlavis and elaborated upon by the mullahs. Ethnic groups want to live in peace and equality, but Persian-led groups refuse to work with them and...

There is too much hatred and Persian chauvinism at the heart of Iranian nationalism, which was defined by the Pahlavis and elaborated upon by the mullahs. Ethnic groups want to live in peace and equality, but Persian-led groups refuse to work with them and rather engage in insults and intimidation that indicates a fascist mindset.

Having been the subject of a relentless personal campaign by both the Pahlavi-led monarchists and the supporters of the Islamic Republic (I really can't tell them apart), I understand the kind of aggression ethnic groups like the Kurds face. The only way Kurds will find freedom is through separation from Iran. The same goes for all other non-Persian groups.

I think the Kurds deserve better than the government in the hole Middle East , I don't understand why they don't have their country I am lebanise and I hate the tyrant from the Arab or the Turks or Iran forcing the Kurds to be part of their people instead of making them friends in their own Kurdistan
