Rewriting Kurdish History in SyriasteemCreated with Sketch.

 ORWELL WAS RIGHT.
The BBC altered a 2014 article about Kurds. It used to say they were "historically nomadic" now it says they are "indigenous".
They're trying to re-write history to conceal the fact that Kurds came to Syria and Iraq as nomads from Iran, because that contradicts the "they were robbed of their historic land" narrative.
