Within the frame of the campaign launched by KON-KURD (the Confederation of In Kurdish Associations in Europe) and other 10 federations affiliated to it, Kurds are beginning to send a letter to U.S. president Barack Obama. The campaign will last until January 31st, 2011.

Kurdish institutions aim to point out the support the USA are providing to Turkey, both in terms of intelligence-sharing and military sales, ultimately hits Kurds.

In the statement calling on people to mobilize, KON-KURD and the other associations organizing the protest underlined the recent massacres and operations in which the Turkish army had the support of the USA. It is no mystery that the USA have been providing Turkey with intelligence on Kurdistan Workers' Party PKK camps and movements. Indeed the U.S. have deployed four RQ-1 Predator MALE drones at Turkey’s southern İncirlik airbase to fly over PKK camps in Kurdistan region in Iraq's north and provide the Turkish military intelligence.

The letter which is being sent to president Obama begins with a reminder of "the genocides and massacres that the Kurdish people have witnessed and also what the Kurdish people are facing today".

The letter also stresses that "The Republic of Turkey, your strategic partner, is massacring Kurds everyday with the very support you give them whether it is military,www.ekurd.net political or economical. The very latest example of this is the most recent killing of 36 unarmed Kurdish civilians by F-16 Jets bought from the USA and intelligence gained from Predator Drones supplied by yourselves".

Underlining that over 4 thousand people have been jailed by the Turkish government, the letter adds that "The Turkish Army, by using airspace that is controlled by your state, has massacred Kurdish civilians and ruined our landscape and yet you still have not said a word".

The letter then underlined that for five months there has been no news from "the leader of our people Mr. Abdullah Ocalan who was actively kidnapped and handed over to the Turkish authorities by your predecessors, and yet not a word from your administration".

The letter ends with some questions directly put to president Obama: "What have we, the Kurds, ever done to you or your country, what have we come against for you to declare us enemies? Or maybe this “democracy, human rights and freedom” are just part of a rhetoric only used to further the USA’s interests across the globe. What is the reason for this double standard? Why do you continue to support a state that bombs its own people within its own borders?"

And then underlines that Kurds "will not allow for Kurdish children to be massacred in this way" nor "will allow for history to repeat itself".

The final sentence of the letter is a reminder to president Obama, "the Nobel Prize for Peace".

"To play the role of peacemaker for the Kurdish and Turkish people - says the letter - whom we believe is also in the best interests for the USA. We believe that you have a positive role to play in bringing peace to Kurdistan, the Middle East and the World".

Re: It is time to see the truth, The Kurds will not allow for history to repeat itself.

Dear Mr. Obama,
I am writing you this short letter to remind you of the genocides and massacres that the Kurdish people have witnessed and also what the Kurdish people are facing today.

The Kurdish people are being deprived of basic human rights and much of what is generally accepted as universal human rights.

The Republic of Turkey, your strategic partner, is massacring Kurds everyday with the very support you give them whether it is military, political or economical. The very latest example of this is the most recent killing of 36 unarmed Kurdish civilians by F-16 Jets bought from the USA and intelligence gained from Predator Drones supplied by yourselves.

Your strategic partner Recep T. Erdogan’s government has been running a systematic political and military genocide against the Kurdish people. Until now a total of 4000 people consisting of MP’s, Mayors, politicians, intellectuals, writers, journalists, solicitors and hundreds of children have been arrested in Turkey and you haven’t had a single word to say about this.

The Turkish Army, by using airspace that is controlled by your state, has massacred Kurdish civilians and ruined our landscape and yet you still have not said a word.

For five months we have not been able to hear any news from the leader of our people Mr. Abdullah Ocalan who was actively kidnapped and handed over to the Turkish authorities by your predecessors, and yet not a word from your administration.

Let alone a word of criticism your spokespersons are declaring support for the AKP government and promising further supply of technologically advanced missiles.

Mr. Obama,

What have we, the Kurds, ever done to you or your country, what have we come against for you to declare us enemies? Or maybe this “democracy, human rights and freedom” are just part of a rhetoric only used to further the USA’s interests across the globe. What is the reason for this double standard? Why do you continue to support a state that bombs its own people within its own borders?

Mr. Obama,

We will not allow for Kurdish children to be massacred in this way.
We will not allow for history to repeat itself.
We do not want decisions made on our behalf.
We decline to be sacrificed for certain interests.
What we expect of you and your administration;
To play the role of peacemaker for the Kurdish and Turkish people whom we believe is also in the best interests for the USA. We believe that you have a positive role to play in bringing peace to Kurdistan, the Middle East and the World.

Regards
