Turkish mafia

Reader comment on item: Europe under Siege

Submitted by SULTAN (Turkey), Oct 18, 2005 at 15:08

Dear Mr Pipes,

I thank you very much for screening my comments although I object almost to all your articles.
Being a Turk, this time I will again not make a surprise and will object to you one more time.

Firstly I am very ashamed by the international Turkish mafias works in all over the world not only in EU.Those Turks are mostly Kurdish Turks and their main business is buying drugs from Afghanistan, İran and Pakistan and transit it from Russia and Ukraine to Europe and other parts of the world and poison your youth, besides humun smuggling. Also together with Russian mafia they are supplying young Russian & Ukrainian girls to Europe.They are very dangerous people, they can easily kill. İf any nation can deal with them the way they deserve, that can only make us happy.

This dirty money is turning back to Turkey in a very bad shape. The Kurd mafia is buying bombs and weapons and hiding it in Norhern Iraq and from there they are hitting Turkey randomly and running back to Iraq. Especially after the American invasion of Iraq, we are forbidden by Mr Bush to enter northern Iraq to follow and punish them and those terrorist Kurds are getting more and more bold every day.We beg Mr Bush to do something about them . But he won't. And you see why we Turks are very much against the USA policies today. İs this about our religion İslam you think? Don't expect us to thank to Mr Bush for destroying all the balance in this area.

Secondly, I believe there is an error in some facts in this article.Yes, the smugglers are Turkish Kurds, but the ones illegally passing are mainly Pakistani, Afghan, and İranian Kurds. They are not Turkish citizens. I don't think that even totally there are 100 thousand Turks in England today. Besides, believe me, it is so easy for a Turk to pass to Europe from Bulgeria and Romania that all the Turks who wanted to go to Europe already went there. Every day we hear a boat sinking when trying to pass to Greece full of those people in the Agean Sea. They simply die, nobody in the world cries for them.

Thirdly, I want to say that I believe that USA policies in the world today are based on aggression, wars and punishment. USA is claiming that they are bringing democracy and freedom to Iraq by invasion and bombs and killings, while the EU is bringing real democracy to Turkey by political and economic means. While the USA is creating disasters and chaos and religion clashes, the EU is creating stability and global peace. İt is not important if they take Turkey into EU or not. They are showing to all world the correct road. USA and EU are not the same thing.

Below are words which won't fit to today's USA policies; they were stated in 1929:

MANKİND İS A SİNGLE BODY AND EACH NATİON A PART OF THAT BODY.WE MUST NEVER SAY 'WHAT DOES İT MATTER TO ME İF SOME PARTS OF THE WORLD İS AİLİNG?' İF THERE İS SUCH AN İLLNESS,WE MUST CONCERN OURSELVES WİTH İT AS THOUGH WE WERE HAVİNG THAT İLLNESS.
