Germany learned its lesson. It took two world wars but now it won’t err again. Extreme nationalism, militarism, arrogance, hate speech, mass murder, crimes against humanity, racism and Jews’ hatred – they are all no options anymore there.
But Turkey has not repented after the Armenian genocide. It is denying it. There’s no reason to believe that it can’t do it again. There’s every reason to think that it will do it again. And US President Trump just gave Ankara permission. (Not that he knows or understands that. He’s against genocide but he doesn’t recognize blood-thirsty dictators as dangerous.)
A People that denies its past mass murder must be feared to repeat the offense. Turkey is not just against the Kurdish soldiers/terrorists. Killing them would leave the Kurdish People defenseless. You don’t need to be a genius to understand what a Turkish army will do with a defenseless People at its border. Don’t gamble with the Kurds’ lives. Protest! Call upon your leaders to swiftly act. In two years time (1915-1917), the Turks mass murdered 2 million civilians, Armenians. That was 95% of them. Some 2739 murders per day, 20,000 per week. There are now about 2 million Kurds in Syria. With modern technique, the Turks must be able to kill 100,000 people per week. Don’t be lazy and don’t be slow! Don’t wait to sound the alarm only when half a million people are dead.
They’ve done it before. There is no basis to think they won’t do it again.
The Kurds will try to survive this too. Will you just wait and see if they’ll succeed? And at what cost of human life and of our moral standing?
A new genocide may be imminent in Syria on the Kurds. Stop Turkey now!
