Israeli President Shimon Peres told US President Barack Obama on June 25 that Iraq could not be kept together and asked for support for Kurdish independence.

The next day, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told US Secretary of State John Kerry in Paris that the establishment of an independent Kurdish state was probably inevitable.

In addition, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "We have to support the independence aspirations of the Kurds."

This was not the first time Israeli leaders have pushed for Kurdish independence. They have repeatedly echoed this line in the decade since the invasion of Iraq.

Historical relationships between some Kurdish factions and Israel go back to the early days of the Zionist project.

Dividing the Middle East into countries of warring minorities can be traced back to the days of British colonialism and today Israel is at the forefront of making sure it happens.
