What's the Good Kurd?
- What's the Good Kurd?
Jalal was a vocal supporter of Kurdistan unification and the rights of
his fellow countrymen living abroad. Because of his involvement in the
politics of his country, Jalal had to travel a great deal. This upset
his girlfriend, Shirien, who loved him deeply but found her feelings
dampened by his frequent absences. While Jalal was away, Shirien fell
in love with another man.
When Jalal returned from his travels, he found a note from Shirien,
read it, and started wailing and tearing at his clothes.
"What's wrong?" asked one of his friends.
Another looked at the note and realized that the situation wasn't all
that serious. The friend explained, "He's only a Kurd in a jilted rage."
