Wow, how stupid could you be?
You were trained by who?
Israel 'trains Iraqi Kurd forces'
By Magdi Abdelhadi
Arab affairs analyst, BBC News
The BBC has obtained evidence that Israelis have been giving military training to Kurds in northern Iraq.
A report on the BBC TV programme Newsnight showed Israeli experts in Kurdish areas of north Iraq, drilling soldiers in shooting techniques.
Kurdish officials have refused to comment on the report and Israel has denied it knows of any involvement.
The revelation is set to cause enormous problems for the Kurds, not only in Iraq but also in the wider region.
Inside Iraq as well as in the wider region Israel is seen as an enemy of Arabs and Muslims.
'Against Israeli law'
Kurdish politicians will most likely come under pressure to explain what their semi-autonomous government has been up too.
Israeli security experts who spoke to the BBC said they could not have worked inside Kurdistan without the knowledge of the Kurdish authorities.
The news will most probably increase the tension between the Kurds and other Iraqis.
Iraq's neighbours, too, will be outraged.
I wonder how the Sadrists will take this? My bet, not well.
