Is no longer strange that the eye is the Star of David on top of the first page of a newspaper or magazine, issued in the autonomous province, and he frowned a banner headline that read versions of those calling for the return of Jews to the region. Some of these calls were published and promoted by the magazine "Israel Kurds" by the Kurdish people in Arbil, the capital of the province.
And promote the magazine explicitly to accept the return of Jews to the region they are Kurds, and publishes statistics on the presence of more than 150 Kurdish Jew.
