Quotations by Chairman APO : Ocalan’s letter to the Armenians is a historical document now. But it is not easy to predict its long-term affects.
I) “There are three-pronged parallel state schemes in Turkey. These are sabotaging relations. They are not run-of-the-mill lobbies. Jewish, Armenian and Greek lobbies in the United States are interfering strategically and tactically. All three originate from Anatolia.” ABDULLAH ÖCALAN 2013
II) “In Turkey, in addition to the official state, there are parallel states. For example, the Gulen Movement is a parallel state. The Israeli lobby, nationalist Armenians and Greek lobbies are parallel states. These parallel states have serious common interests that they share.” – Jan. 9, 2013, BESE HOZAT, leader of the Union of Kurdish Communities.
III) “We understand why our peoples were anxiously with linking the ‘parallel state’ with Armenian, Greek and Jewish identities, which have been legally and politically sidelined from organized society and state and who are the objects of abhorrent narratives”. Ertugrul KURKCU & Sebahat TUNCEL 2013
