from Paul Maubec to Ahmad, 21 August, 1998
I have received your long message, both by e-mail and by fax, and thank you for it. I pity you for having started to write this long letter in French. .
You are one of the few Kurdish people to have sent me such a long commentary on my book, and I am grateful to you.
Basically, your remarks relate to three points on which we do not quite agree.
- what concerns the PUK. . .
- details concerning the history of the movement in Iranian Kurdistan.
- the person of Sheikh Ezzedine
If I could make mistakes on certain names or details, I believe, for the rest, that we have a different vision of the history. . . But do not forget that on many events (the “cleansing” of Badinan, the trip of Moini in Europe, that is to say Talabani, etc, Ghassemlou, etc)
I do hope that we will have the opportunity to meet to talk about it face to face.
Tell me if you have any problems getting the January 1 article from Le Monde? . .
see you soon.
