STATEMENT : THE CO-PRESIDENCY OF KCK EXECUTIVE COUNCIL
TO OUR PEOPLES & THE DEMOCRATIC PUBLIC OPINION
Kurdistan Democratic Communities’ Union –Info – A car-bomb attack in the city of Kobani, Rojava Kurdistan, killed 14 civilians and wounded 24 others. We condemn this massacre, express our condolences to the families of the martyrs, and hope quick recovery for the wounded.
This massacre has been done by the enemies of Rojava revolution. This inhumane and cowardly attack has been carried out by those who have suffered great defeats against Rojava revolution. Those who failed to hold out against the Rojava revolution have resorted to such a treacherous attack.
No matter who they are, those carrying out this massacre are the enemies of humanity. Those who carry out indiscriminate attacks on children, women, and the elderly cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, regard themselves humans. It is said these attacks have been done by Islamic-façade groups with the collaboration of some collaborative Kurdish traitors. Those who conduct such actions in the name of Islam cannot be called Muslims. They are pro-power Islam, pro-state Islam, the version of Islam that killed Hz. Hussein in Karbala, that is, the Islam of Muaviyeh. They are anti-Islam. Attacking the Muslim Kurds and Arabs give clear clues with regard to the real identity of these offenders.
The Muslim are the ones most angry at bombing the mosques in the name of Islam. The Middle East has turned into a region in which random and indiscriminate attacks are being carried out against the civilians. Those who present to the world’s public opinion such photograph of the Middle East as a place where civilians are under indiscriminate attacks are the enemies of Islam; for, only enemies would want to downgrade this religion of truth, conscience, justice and peace to such a level. In order to lift such negative shadows over Islam, the Kurdish People’s Leader recommended the Democratic Islam Conference. Thus, the democratic cultural Islam will be differentiated from the Islam used as a means of carrying out anti-human attacks. Justice, truth, conscience and peace, characteristic of Islam, can only be supported in this way.
The vicinity of Kobani, the city in which the massacre took place, to the Turkish borders, rises doubts about Turkey role in this regard. It is quite clear that Turkey is backing the Islamic-façade thug of gangs against the Rojava Revolution. Likewise, it is argued that some marginal Kurdish groups are also backing these thugs. Turkey cannot free itself from these accusations as far as in insists on enmity with Rojava revolutions. It is clear that these attacks are being supported by those who don’t want the Kurds to gain their rights, especially by Turkey.
The Turkish state was the first to oppose the demand of Rojava people to establish their own democratic self-rule; therefore, a concrete proof for its enmity against Rojava revolution. Considering Turkey’s fierce opposition to the establishment of self-rule by Rojava people whilst supporting the establishment of states for other groups and communities with whom it has close ties, gives irrefutable indications about Turkey’s approach towards the Kurds. In fact, Turkey’s lack of the will power to settle the Kurdish question is another reason for its unwillingness to take any steps appropriate to the steps taken by Kurdish People’s Leader and the Kurdish Freedom Movement.
These massacres will lead to the escalation of Rojava people’s struggle for freedom and unity. This people will strengthen their will for a free and democratic life, contrary to the aims and interests of those who carried out the massacre. Showing the will power to declare their own democratic self-rule in the aftermath of the attack is a clear sign of this fact.
We call on the countries in the region and all the enemies of the Kurds: “The Kurds are one of the ancient nations of the Middle East. The Kurdish people have the right to enjoy a free and democratic life, just as other people in the region have.” All the countries in the region and international forces should contribute to peace and stability in the Middle East, hence respect the will and determination of this people. The freedom and democratic life of the Kurds will bring peace, democracy and freedom to all the Middle East, primarily to those countries where the Kurds live.
