It is revealed today that Abdullah Ocalan, PKK's leader, has never been arrested by the Turkish special forces. It was Ocalan's body double (above). The real Ocalan is not imprisoned in Imrali, a Turkish island. He may be on holiday in Capri...
It seems that the only government in this country is now Abdullah Ocalan, the leader of PKK, which labeled as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the EU and the US. Let's remember: Ocalan, who was condemned to a life sentence, had announced last month that he would be transferred to another cell in Imrali island. He complained that the new cell was smaller than the previous one, even though the difference was barely one square-meter. Consequently, several riots were observed in southeastern provinces. Most of the rioters who burned cars and stoned shops were Kurdish children. A tactic that PKK have been using for a long time... Then DTP officially declared that they were concerned about Ocalan's comfort. It was a significant development, showing that this political party was no more hiding the fact that it was actually an apparatus of PKK. Thereafter, the Constitutional Court did what it had to do, shutting down DTP by referring to its obvious links to PKK. And DTP leaders announced that they would resign from the parliament... Finally, Ocalan talked to his lawyers about the ban and ordered DTP leaders to take their resignations back and stay in the parliament under a new party. Today, DTP leaders, like PKK poodles, did what Ocalan wanted, confirming that the court decision was totally legitimate.

After Ocalan's messages, it is expected that violent protest marches which still continue all around Turkey, especially in the cities with large Kurdish populations, will cease in a few days. The police is generally tolerant during PKK marches. In some cities, the security forces even allow the protesters to beat the policemen that they didn't like! What AKP's police cannot stand is laborers, not terrorists. Hundreds of tobacco industry workers, who were formerly public servants, are about to lose their jobs now after the government privatized TEKEL. While marching yesterday, the police brutally dispersed TEKEL workers. A few opposition MPs were also suffered from the police batons and tear gas.
A CHP parliamentarian, not his body double, welcomes the police tear gas with his forehead (above).
On one side, there is a government which is only strong enough against its tax-paying citizens, but not terrorists... On the other side, there is a terror organization which is being legitimized by the incapability of the government... AKP and PKK... Which one is a rising political actor and which one is a destructive force in Turkey?
