- n. Plural form of Kurdistani.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Then I present some more and engage in deep -- as in, hours-long -- debate on Middle Eastern politics with the Kurdistanis (fascinating).
Up 0600 this am [Friday], and -- thanks to our friend -- we and Kurdistanis get tour of NY Stock Exchange (way cool), watching the bell ringing at 0930 from below on the floor (some Disney channel young lady).
No wonder the Kurdistanis are nervous: two powerful regional forces (Iran and Saudi Arabia), neither of which really want a federated Iraq but rather one dominated by co-religionists.
