    No, they don't represent even half of Kurds and even if they represent half of Kurds, what about other half who support to be part of Turkey no matter what. They don't even want autonomy. Just...
  5. Re: Erdogan's security detail attack US citizens, hospitalising nine

    On my behalf, I'm definitely not against Kurdish autonomy. If they want that, they should have that. But this autonomy shouldn't be under terrorist organizations who work for foreign forces and do...

  18. Re: Turkey Referendum catastrophe: Erdogan declares victory. End of the Republic?

    Don't worry about it. Erdogan supporters are not enemy of non-Turks, just opposite actually. That's why many people accusing Turks who support AKP with being traitor because they accept Kurds. There...
