Erdogan Should Wake Up to the Reality That Only the Kurds' Ideology Is Future Proof

"Attacks like the one on 25 April, which intensify the anger and determination of the growing group of Kurds in the Middle-East who support the ideology of the PKK and YPG, increase the risk that Turkey will be plunged into a bloody civil war. The outcome of it would be the same as the inevitable outcome of the Syrian war: a federal system that reflects and respects the richness of these lands. The sooner Erdogan realizes this and dares to let go of European invented nationalism and embraces the ideology that roots in the history of the region he lives in, the better it will be for Turkey’s future and, above all, for the future of the people that give it its beauty."
