إسرائيل الثقافة

  كتب فيليب روث، في "شكوى بورتنوي"، إن إسرائيل منفى اليهود. وبمقارنةٍ لا تستقيم هنا (لعل مردّها هو التكرار الغريب لمقولات تلحّ على تخوين الأكراد ووصمهم بالانفصالية وتشبيه أحلامهم في دولة مستقلة بأحلام الإسرائيليين بأرض الميعاد، والربط الملغوم بين الموساد وكردستان) رأى صديق أن كردستان العراق قد تكون ...  Read More »
