ABSTRACT
The article discusses state-building for Palestinian statehood as it shares lessons from Kurdistan. It claims that the Kurds have spent decades for the construction of the educational, economic, military, and political institutions for statehood, noting the growth in women's rights, the decline in family honor killings, and international support for their bid for statehood. It stresses that bashing Israel is not the way to statehood, nor arguing for moral superiority and victimhood.
