A reply was posted to a comment on the server, at May 16, 2012, seems not to have been approved by The Independent.co.uk! Read them here. By Raimo Kangasniemi (2 days ago in reply to Garja1):Kurdish is an Indo-Iranian language. The term "Kurd", by the way, is relatively recent, and the people in question go under various names in ancient sources and are pretty hard to identify because of that. The Kurdish language has little in the way of written sources before late medieval times. There has been attempts to connect the Kurds to some very ancient groups of people - like the Gutians in the late third millennium BCE - but those claims are based on little more than similarly sounding names and geographical proximity.
In reply to Raimo Kangasniemi (May 16, 2012):
Assumptions like Indo-Iranian, Indo-European, Aryan, ancient Iranian and Semitic languages and people are hoaxes. Their scientific legitimacies are refuted in the Bible Discovered, Bible = Babel (Babylon) and substantiated with hundreds of facts. See the book on http://hqberai.blogspot.com/
By the modern scholars identified determinatives for identification of names of the Gods, countries and cities are false.
Elam, Babylon, Sumer, Akkad, Hittite, Assyria, Gutians etc were not lands or country-languages. The ancient languages which are unjustly by the European experts called as Elamite, Sumerian, Babylonian, Akkadian, Hittitian, Assyrian, Gutians, Syriac, Persian etc. cannot stand. The texts are clearly written in the Kurdish myriad languages.
The term “Kurd” and the names of many Kurdish people appear from the earliest ancient texts.
The institutes and museums consciously or unconsciously provide still the world public and the scientific circuits with wrong information about early human civilizations, ethnography and the bible.
