Chapter Summary

The inclusion of Shino, of Persian Kurdistan, with the five urban centers from Iraqi Kurdistan, may be justified by three main reasons that are discussed in this chapter. Several Jewish informants from various communities commented on the relations between Barzānī aghas and the Jews under their jurisdiction. The relations between Mullā Muṣṭafā and the Jewish household of Khawaja Khinno in Aqra go back at least three generations to the 19th century if not earlier. The examination of the relationships between aghas and Jews in six urban centers in Kurdistan has revealed three main patterns that are discussed in the chapter. The Jewish communities exhibiting the first two patterns had the advantage of having a clear address to which they could turn for help when facing a crisis.
