Call To Action
I join the U.S. Turkic Network (USTN) in expressing outrage and condemnation of the continually brutal acts by the Kongra-Gel (KGK, formerly Kurdistan Workers’ Party, PKK, KADEK) terrorist organization. Their latest large scale terrorist act took place on July 14, 2011, where they killed 13 and wounded seven Turkish soldiers in an ambush in Diyarbakir’s Silvan district in Turkey.
The Kongra-Gel (KGK, formerly Kurdistan Workers’ Party, PKK, KADEK) is a Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs) as designated by the U.S. Secretary of State in accordance with section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).
In addition to the U.S., the UK, Canada, Israel, Turkey, the EU and NATO have all classified the PKK/KADEK/KGK as a terrorist organization which has taken the lives of up to 40,000 innocents, including Americans, since 1984.
The pro-Kurdish separatism Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) and the Democratic Society Congress (DTK), a front organization for the terrorist PKK/KADEK/KGK, meanwhile met with 850 of its delegates in Diyarbakir on Thursday, July 14, and announced a “democratic autonomy” of the region.
The U.S. Turkic Network expresses its deep condolences to the families of the 13 killed servicemen, who died honorably in the line of duty, protecting their country and families from the scorge of terrorism. I join the USTN in wishing a quick recovery to the several wounded and wish them strength.
Concrete actions that can help reduce and prevent such situations in the future:
1) better understanding of the Turkish position against the PKK/KADEK/KGK terrorism through more joint research between U.S. and Turkish think-tanks and research centers;
2) strengthening of the anti-terrorism cooperation, targeting PKK/KADEK/KGK, between the U.S. and Turkey. This should include sharing of actionable military and financial intelligence, as well as extradition of PKK members to Turkey;
3) placing members and sympathizers of PKK/KADEK/KGK who are citizens of European countries and Canada, or residents of U.S., under the special Supervision of Aliens Commensurate with Risk list by the Department of Homeland Security;
4) reviewing all U.S. government grants and loans provided to any U.S. or foreign nonprofit organization dealing with Kurdish issues in Iraq, Iran, or Turkey;
5) providing greater protection and assistance to the Turkmans of Iraq, who are being ethnically cleansed by various radical and terrorist Kurdish organizations from their ancestral homeland in northern Iraq.
