“After four days of continuous bombardment and also many soldiers landing on the Garê mountainous terrain, the safe place where the captives were kept was bombed 18 times by the Turkish state. The place where the captives whom they went to save. Coming to the PKK leader to be caught, they had their hands empty of that as well that left Recep grumbling in the gizzard with his “gospel to be announced to his people,” writes Ahmet Kahraman for Yeni Özgür Politika.
Once upon a time, the Turkish rulers, whose hands dripping with blood from the genocide of Armenians, Pontus Greeks, Assyrians and Koçgiri Kurds, set a trap in the way of Sheikh Said. It was on 13 February 1925 and their trap was planned so as to launch a war of total Kurdish genocide as they knew very well how the people would react.
And their calculations were correct. Once the people heard that their Sheikh was surrounded, they rushed to rescue him.
The killers were happy to see what they expected to see. They declared the reaction as a ‘rebellion’ and here was the opportunity they created for themselves to become the ones who ‘had to suppress the rebellion’.
However, ‘rebellions’ mean having a plan, an organised program and at least some armed men. The majority of the people who stood by the Sheikh did not even have a stick in their hand.
Turks immediately declared that “Kurds were ‘brothers’ in religion, but that this Sheikh was a bad guy”. They said, “If the Sheikh would surrender, the ‘good brothers’ would benefit from the aid distributed by the rulers, and not be attacked or touched.”
Kurds have a saying, “bextê Roma reş tuneye” (that literally means that the destiny of the Turks are not dark, which is used to express that nothing good should be expected from the Turks) When the agents took the Sheikh as captive, that saying was proved right by history one more time. Following the Sheikh’s capture, the days for “the good Kurds” arrived for them to be burned alive, to be raked with bullets and to be pillaged and killed.
Thereupon, Kurds reorganised themselves, taking Mount Ararat as their centre of struggle to stop the killers. By doing so, Kurds became “good brothers in religion”, again. But this time İhsan Nuri Pasha, their Commander-in-Chief was the ‘bad guy’.
There was no İhsan Nuri Pasha in 1930. The headquarters on Mount Ararat was eliminated. They attacked the leaderless, unorganised, defenseless Kurds. “Geliyê Zilan”, which they call “Zilan River”, was filled with human corpses from all ages and genders, including new born babies.
It was their ‘word of honour’ when they promised, if Seyîd Riza surrendered, the people would not be touched. Seyid Riza surrendered to them by his own feet to protect the people from the demon like enemies. They executed him. Then they set about an attempt at such a genocide of the Kurds that they set an example for the Nazis.
After many years, “The Kurds were good” again, but “Abdullah Öcalan was the bad guy”. Öcalan has been taken as a hostage in their hands for more than 20 years now, but this time, they gave the role of the “bad guy” to the PKK (Kurdistan Workers’ Party) just like in Hollywood movies so that when a single Kurd raises himself up off the floor and demands freedom, they announced that this Kurd is a terrorist. A mentality worse than a serial killer as they knocked at the doors of Kurds with bombs, missiles and tanks.
The Kurdish massacre was reasonable, acceptable and good for them. Each Kurd born was born to be either killed or prisoned by the Turk. Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has an obsession with Kurds, just like Hitler had one with the Jews. Such a complex comes from a feeling of inferiority…
The Turk, who wants to be seen as the purest, the most authentic, the ‘most patriotic’ Turk raged with hatred against the Kurds and ordered Kurdish massacres. “We have no eye on anyone’s land,” they said, but occupied a large part in Rojava with the support of the hired mercenary killer jihadists the next day after they got the permission from the Iraqi Kurdistan by hand-kissing and bribery. They started bombing Sinjar, whose people were raped and slaughtered by the ISIS. They also besieged the Makhmour (Mexmûr) refugee camp, in which the Kurdish refugees reside.
When all these happened, a man called Hulusi Akar, was ready to move before his master ordered him to do so in such a passion to break the record of to see more blood. In his first move, he had 34 civilians in Roboski, most of whom were children murdered. He then had 10 Kurdish cities encircled followed by the forced displacement and exile of the people of the Afrin, Serêkaniyê (Ras al Ayn), Girê Spî (Tell Abyad). Hulusi enjoyed his life playing with human blood.
His final move was to hand out to his master Recep (Tayyip Erdoğan) the maps of a prison on Garê Mountain, where some Turkish gents, police officers and soldiers were kept as prisoners. Most significantly, he guaranteed him that he would “not only bring back the captives, but also one of the PKK leaders.” Recep must have been so pleased to hear such news that he announced, “Watch me on the TV on Wednesday, I will announce a gospel for you.”
Two days later, Hulusi was attacking Garê Mountain with a massive war fleet, including 41 war planes and military helicopters. After four days of continuous bombardment and also many soldiers landing on the Garê mountainous terrain, the place where the prisoners were being kept was bombed 18 times. The place where the prisoners, whom they went to save. Coming to the PKK leader to be caught, they had their hands empty on that as well that left Recep grumbling in the gizzard with his “gospel to be announced to his people”.
This was a defeat, because they attacked Garê with 41 airplanes and tens of helicopters and they shelled Garê for four consecutive days in order to stay there permanently, but the fact is that, they could not stay on Garê. Their death toll has still not been announced at the time of writing this article, but it is also a fact that they had to return in great difficulty to save their own lives. The numbers they share regarding the death toll of the Kurds are mere lies of war.
