The BDP, the pro-PKK “political” party (former DTP), which is racist and ultra-nationalist, aims at dividing Turkey, and Osman Baydemir’s last declaration proved it. The BDP is the lawyer of the terrorist organization the PKK. It is essential to underline that the Kurdish issue and the PKK terrorism are two different issues, and of course the PKK does not represent the Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens.
The PKK kills people almost every week, but the so-called politicians of the BDP remain silent, or say this: “The killings of the PKK are a revolutionary violence”. How dare they say that? That is very appalling. Most of the so-called politicians of the DTP/BDP (Ahmet Türk, Selahattin Demirtaş, Osman Baydemir….) are nothing less than collaborators.
Mr Baydemir also said that: “We want our Kurdish flag to be at the side of our Turkish flag. We want an autonomous Kurdistan, as we want an autonomous black sea…..”. Mr Baydemir has to know that Turkey is not like Germany. In Germany there isn’t any terrorist group like the PKK who kills the German citizens in order to create a new state. Mr Baydemir is a collaborator, thus he certainly has no credibility. Mr Baydemir has to know that the Turkish state is united and that no autonomy will ever be on the Turkish horizon. First the autonomy, then the flag, then a “Kurdish state”?
The PKK assassinates people almost every week in Turkey. Since Mr Baydemir doesn’t curse the terrorist attacks of the PKK, he should go to Irak or to Afghanistan, where he would realize better what terrorism means. If Mr Baydemir is not happy in Turkey, he should settle in some countries of the European Union where he would earn more money, since the PKK collects money with impunity.
Well instead of trying to provoke everybody in Turkey, instead of supporting the terrorist group the PKK, instead of aiming at creating chaos, instead of aiming at dividing the secular republic of Turkey, Mr Osman Baydemir should at last do his job and try to resolve the issues of the Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens of southeastern Turkey.
In fact, the problem of the Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens is not a so-called Kurdistan. Their true problems are of course unemployment (as everywhere in Turkey), but also their honour killings or their polygamy which are more common in southeastern Turkey than elsewhere. Thus, Mr Baydemir (as well as his very laughable colleagues) should stop their horrible propaganda and concentrate their energy on these issues. They would help turkey.
The PKK claims that it’s been killing people for 30 years “because the Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens have no cultural rights”. That’s a big lie. Who can believe that insane explanation? So since there was no Kurdish TV or no possibility to learn the Kurdish language at schools or at universities, the PKK assassinated thousands of people? That’s crazy. That is a ridiculous lie which is far from being credible. That’s a lie that aims at making the PKK credible. The PKK doesn’t care of culural rights, it even kills Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens.
There are some Kurdish citizens who support the PKK because the PKK wash their brain and take advantage of poverty in order to gain their support, but most of the citizens of Kurdish origin don’t support that terrorist group. The PKK does not represent the Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens. Let’s remember several huge Kurdish demonstrations in 2004 in several towns of southeastern Turkey: people did curse the PKK.
The greatest problem with the Turkish media is that they are used to showing us the clashes between the police and the pro-PKK people, and not too often the Kurdish-rooted citizens who curse the PKK. The PKK wants to divide Turkey, that is not a secret. It is helped by foreign powers. Most of the politcians of the BDP, who are said to be intimidated or threatened by the PKK, don’t curse the murderers of the PKK, while at the same time want “autonomy”. If they want autonomy, it’s because they object to the unity of the republic of Turkey. They only want to provoke mayhem.
Now that there’s a Kurdish TV, which is a revolution, they want “autonomy”. In France Alsace, Brittany or Normandy don’t want of any autonomy, but the so-called politicians of the BDP want one. Lastly, unemployment hits everybody in Turkey, but no Turkish citizen near the Black sea, at Istanbul, at Ankara or at Izmir want any autonomy.
No condition can be imposed to Turkey from the terrorist organization the PKK. The PKK is not in a situation to hold talks with the Turkish state, because it is a terrorist group. The terrorists of the PKK must disarm. The PKK must disarm and it has no single right to ask for anything to the Turkish government or to the Turkish state. The PKK is not a country. The PKK is lying and the truth is that it is losing power, that’s why it is afraid. That’s why its supporters in the world and in the EU are afraid. The PKK is making its usual propaganda. Anyway, the Kurdish issue is already being resolved through dialogue. And Turkey will invest more in education, that being vital for the southeast of Turkey.
A country can not lay down its arms. A country has soldiers so that they protect its citizens. Only terrorists can be expected to lay down their arms. The extremist politicians of the BDP (former DTP) are like the extremist politicians of the MHP, but the BDP supports or at least tolerate the murderers of the PKK. The Kurdish opening of the Turkish government is successful and it is not finished yet. For those who are not aware, a national Kurdish TV channel was launched almost 2 years ago. That is a hystoric but not much taken into account step.
The Kurdish language is about to be taught at schools and at universities. The Kurdish language is already used at theatres. Thence the collaborators of the PKK/BDP and their supporters in the EU must be very upset of the successful Kurdish opening. What will the BDP do? What will it suggest to the citizens? It will not be able to wash the brain of the Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens anymore. In other words, the politicians of the BDP will be on the dole.
I quote Mr Lagendijk: “The problem with Baydemir’s speech is not with the content but with the timing and the way it was presented.”
I do not agree with him at all. What I have written above is my comment to his article, I hope that he read my opinion.
Let’s remind that the European Union has made pressure on France for years about the minority languages charter. But France still does not want to implement it. France officially said to the EU: “We don’t want to implement that charter because we want to preserve the national unity of France”. But when Turkey states that it wants to protect its national unity, it’s like the end of the world. Well why aren’t the journalists dealing with that refusal of France? Because France is a democracy?! When it’s about Turkey and its Kurdish issue, the journalists do not hesitate to blame it. In fact, pointing one’s finger at Turkey and accusing it of being the source of many problems is in fashion. The truth is that many people are whether subjective or ignorant about the Kurdish issue.
Let’s also remind that there are nearly 90 Kurdish-rooted Turkish politicians in the Turkish parliament. Perhaps more. I know that at least two former presidents of Turkey were of Kurdish origin. There are Kurdish-rooted politicians in almost every political party. There are many Kurdish-rooted businessmen. And there are loads of journalists of Kurdish origin too. These journalists don’t support the BDP/PKK, because they support life and Turkey’s territorial integrity. Thus, the Kurdish-rooted Turks exist well and truly in Turkish politics and in the media. But Mr Baydemir, Ahmet Türk, and Selahattin Demirtaş and their collaborators want only one thing: to divide Turkey and create a Kurdistan. Let’s underline again what Mr Baydemir did say: “We want an autonomous Kurdistan”. He did not say: “We want autonomy”, which is different. There is no virtual Kurdistan in Turkey but there are Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens. Anyway, Mr Baydemir should remember that private kurdish TV channels and radios will be launched too. So he should stop his immoral propaganda.
Some lobbies and some journalists want to make the EU citizens believe that there is a war in Turkey. There is no war or civil war in Turkey, because the PKK does not represent the Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens. Why? Because the PKK is a terrorist group. The Kurdish-rooted Turkish citizens are not terrorists, they are citizens of Turkey.
I do hope that the generals (like the traitor to the republic Kenan Evren) who made the military coup in Turkey 30 years ago will be judged. And Turkey has the duty to investigate about all the murders during its period of chaos. These murders are being discussed on many turkish TV channels. That is a great step. Furthermore, many people linked to the Ergenekon case confessed their involvment to some murders.
To put it in a nutshell, Turkey is changing at a fast pace. Within two years Turkey will have improved itself much more. The partial reform of the constitution is not enough, however it is a positive step that will enable the establishment of a brand new constitution. And within 10 years, Turkey will be a much better democracy. It will be a more harmonious country. I’m convinced about that.
A national Kurdish channel that broadcasts varied programmes 24/24 was launched more than one year ago. Is that a failure? No, it’s an incredible event. But the pro-PKK people and other dark lobbies and media deny that hystoric and symbolic event. In 2000 nobody would have believed that a Kurdish TV channel would be created.
So let’s support the Turkish government about the Kurdish opening and about its fight against the PKK terrorism. The Turkish army, the Turkish gendarmerie and the Turkish police are doing an outstanding job. If they were not efficient, there would be more terrorist attacks in Turkey.
The so-called politicians of the BDP/PKK are afraid and in panic because the AKP and Turkey (artists, NGOs, ….) are succeeding in resolving the Kurdish issue.
The government knows that it must create loads of jobs in southeastern Turkey, because that will contribute to the total destruction of the PKK which takes advantage of poverty to spread its propaganda. It is said that the colossal GAP (güney Anadolu projesi), the southern Anatolian project, will create hundred thousands of jobs. I’m very eager to see that.
The Kurdish issue is the biggest issue of Turkey, and the EU is involved. But there are other issues to deal with, such as the legitimate demands of the Alevis. I do support them.
PS. I suggest that very interesting declaration (published on the Hürriyet daily news) from the Turkish prime minister Mr Erdoğan (I wrote that article several weeks ago so I wasn’t inspired of what Mr Erdoğan said below. It is a coincidence. I guess one or several words are missing in the first paragraph after “are”, perhaps the words “not credible”):
“Kurdish politicians who claim to exclusively represent the Kurdish people are since they are pursuing discriminative policies, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said.
“One political party says that they are the representative of Kurds. Who granted this authority to you? It is discrimination. Today, our party is the one which draws more attention from Kurdish-origin population,” Erdoğan said at his party’s rally in Van, an eastern Turkish province with a high Kurdish population.
“They [Kurdish people] exist in both my Cabinet and the party’s executive board,” Erdoğan said while campaigning for the forthcoming referendum on constitutional reform.
Referring to the pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party, or BDP, Erdoğan said they had nothing to contribute to the east and the southeast of Turkey.
“We have so far made a 24.5 billion [Turkish Lira] investment in the east and southeast. The east got what the west got during our rule. We will continue our investments here. But what did the ‘representatives of the Kurds’ do? They have engaged in discrimination,” the prime minister said.”cem
