>If you think it from a Kurdish viewpoint then I must tell you that what is better for the PKK ? Just hiding out in a remote and desolate area like the Kandils or getting resettled in a distant land of "milk and honey" like say of Israel ?<

Kurds don't have to move to anywhere simply because they are are home in Kurdistan - their historical fatherland , at least for one and a half millenium before any homeless Turkic vagrants arrived from the lower Syrdaria. It is the Turkish occupiers and mass murderers that have to get resettled and definitely neither Israel nor the EU can be their destination.

Just a question for you and your obsession with the PKK. How many Kurds have been killed by the Turkish army and militias, contract killers , gangsters etc. etc. on the Turkish payroll since Kemal's declared war on Kurds in the 20-ies ?

Have you ever heard of the little town called Susurluk and an incident that took place there in 1996 and its bearing on the Kurdish question ?
