The very reason is that their lands are being seized by other people who never respected their rights to live in a peaceful way. They are not also given the opportunity participate in political processes due to their racial and ethnic profiles. The people living in the said place are often regarded as people without a state or stateless people. These people are called Kurds who are non-Arabs living in Arab countries. For so many years, the continuing struggle of the Kurds to keep the land that is rightfully theirs is overwhelming. Their ambition to fully participate in political processes is widespread. Under the cloak of self-determination and freedom, many Kurds are still fighting against the Arab people amidst the grueling political movements, insurgency, uprisings and rebellion as well as escape to find economic opportunities in other countries.
