The rightful claimant to the throne of Libya is Prince Mohammed al-Senussi, not one of the jackal Gaddafi's spawn, and I have about as much chance of being proclaimed King of Mann and the Isles as you do of becoming King of Kurdistan.

Comparing your claim to the throne of the Isle of Man to my claim to the throne of Kurdistan is utterly wrong, because Queen Elizabeth is the monarch of the Isle of Man, while Kurdistan lacks a monarch. I'm actually a nobleman. Are you a nobleman? I don't claim to be the Shah of Kurdistan. I merely claim to be eligible to be elected Shah of Kurdistan. Sovereignty over Kurdistan belongs to the Kurdish people.
Muammar Gaddafi is my favourite Arab ruler, because he was eccentric. Gaddafi was actually elected King of Kings of Africa by 200 African traditional rulers.

The Hashemite monarchy of Iraq was abolished on Bastille Day. Azadism is Kurdish Bonapartism.

Loose to the Germans? Keep your rightful king, here Prince Ra'ad bin Zeid, from the throne?

Give proper honour to your king!

Napoleon III was elected President of France in 1848 and was crowned Emperor of the French in 1852.

Crown Prince Abdullah of the fictional Arab emirate of Khemed in The Adventures of Tintin, is based on King Faisal II of Iraq, who was overthrown and killed by Qasim. His father Emir Mohammed Ben Kalish Ezab, is overthrown by Dr. Müller, a German villain in Tintin, in The Red Sea Sharks. Khemed is depicted as being entirely Arab, despite being based on the Hashemite Kingdom of Iraq. The absence of Kurds and Kurdish culture in Khemed is very strange, because Khemed is based on the Hashemite Kingdom of Iraq. It may have been caused by the fact that the Hashemite regime of Iraq tried to erase Kurdish culture. The leader of the rebellion against Emir Mohammed Ben Kalish Ezab ought to have been a Kurd. Qasim was of partial Kurdish descent. 
Prince Abdullah was lucky compared to King Faisal II. Prince Abdullah was exiled to Moulinsart. King Faisal II was killed and his body was strung from a lamppost in Baghdad. 
My favourite leader of a fictional country in The Adventures of Tintin is General Alcazar, who is the President of the Republic of San Theodoros in South America.

Maybe the author of Tintin wasn't that interested in the Kurds. It does happen.

Herge not being interested in the Kurds isn't strange, but depicting Khemed as entirely Arab is strange, because it is based on the Hashemite Kingdom of Iraq.
