Hidden Threat: PKK

The PKK, a designated terrorist organisation, enjoys a wide support in Australia. The terrorist group raises funds through extortion, drug trafficking and human smuggling in Europe. They run training camps in remote locations and send under-age recruits to Iraq and Syria. Most often they use shell organisations such as Nev-Dam in Germany.

The PKK tactically do not engage in terrorist activities against western countries, but there is no guarantee that that may change anytime soon.

Watch this excerpt from TRT World’s Hidden Threat, an extensive investigative piece which looks at the deep rooted criminal operation network of PKK in Europe.

Far-right Dutch MPs Use “Armenian Genocide” to Settle Scores with Turkey

Dutch parliament have adopted a resolution recognizing the events of 1915 as genocide.

The motions have nothing to with historical justice or the acknowledgment of Armenians’ pain, but rather, everything to do to with scoring political points and engaging in verbal harassment against Turkey.

The move comes at a time when anti-Muslim and anti-Turkey sentiment is at an all time high not just in the Netherlands, but in several other European countries.

It is common knowledge that Turkey’s bilateral relations with the Netherlands have been mired in controversy since 2016. Talks to repair the relations recently broke down, leading the Netherlands to recall its ambassador.

In just ten days of this development, the said motion was adopted.

Using the genocide allegations as a form of punishment is not limited to the Netherlands. It has been done in numerous occasions in other countries as well. Whenever a country experiences political tensions with Turkey, the MPs of that country mysteriously develop definitive knowledge about the complex 1915 events and feel morally compelled to pass judgement on the said events.

This pattern was observed, for example, in Germany, Russia, Israel, and Egypt.

We doubt if any of such acts politicising the pain of Armenians would bring closure or truth to the matter.

Watch Sydney Rally Highlights

Watch the highlights from the public assembly in Sydney, Town Hall on 17 February 2018.

Soon, we will ask the House to:

  1. Demand relevant Australian authorities to investigate and actively prosecute the cases of Harding, Bright and Johnston, and find out the local support networks that facilitated their travel to Syria and join a foreign conflict;
  2. Form a parliament intelligence committee to investigate the links between The Democratic Union Party (PYD), The People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the PKK.

PYD/YPG: Terrorists in Sheep’s Clothing and The Australian Greens

On September 10, 2001, a 22-year-old student from the Central Coast of New South Wales, Amanda Rigg died in a suicide bombing while holidaying in Istanbul.

Responsibility for the attack was claimed by one of the PKK affiliates, the DHKP/C.

The PKK is a terrorist network, which actively recruits citizens of Australia for its bloody campaign, including under its sub-brand YPG/PYD, which is active in the Syrian conflict.

The Gold Coast man Reece Harding, a former ADF soldier, Jamie Bright and the 28 year old Ashley Kent Johnston have all been lured to Middle East by the Australian-based supporters of these terror groups and lost their lives.

Under Part 5.5 of the Criminal Code, it is an offence to recruit people to join an organisation engaged in hostile activities, or to serve in or with an armed force in a foreign country.

We call upon the Australian Government to actively prosecute these cases and bring those who helped Harding, Bright and Johnston travel to Syria to justice.

The PKK’s terror campaign impacts Australian lives. In recent weeks, European capitals such as London and Cologne have been witness to violent protests and attacks by PKK sympathisers. Australia could be next.

It is time for the Australian Government to list the PYD and YPG as terrorist organisations along with the PKK.

The links between PKK and PYD/YPG are very well documented and within the knowledge of Australian security and intelligence officials.
