Turkish veterans and Turkish media want to create a climate for our Thrace!
“The “Turks” of Western Thrace were declared as “internal enemies” in Greece. Turks’ homes, workplaces and telephones must be monitored
Cihat Yayci: Western Thrace is no different from Palestine. People need to hear this!
The wiretapping scandal, which began with the wiretapping of the leader of the Panhellenic Socialist Party (PASOK) Nikos Androulakis, caused two resignations.
The Muslim Turkish community of Western Thrace was declared an “internal enemy”!
Making a statement on the matter, the President of the “Turkish” Union of Xanthi Ozan Ahmetoglou said: “The Muslim “Turkish” Community of Western Thrace has once again been declared an “internal enemy”. While the Second Deputy Speaker of the Parliament Charalambos Athanasiou used the minority MPs in Western Thrace as “material” of this idea to justify and legitimize the wiretapping, he did not hesitate to present the “Turkish” Community of Western Thrace as a “potential enemy” and marginalize him. In fact, the statements of Mr. Athanasios can be counted as a “confession” in a sense.
I wonder if there will be a parliamentary question about whether the MPs elected with the votes of the minority are listened to or if there will be a development as we see in the example of Androulakis? We will wait and see,” he said.
“Everything started with the words of Mr. Athanasiou,” Ahmetoğlu said and continued: “Considering that Athanasiou is a former Minister of Justice and a former prosecutor of the Supreme Court, it will be better understood the mentality with which the “Turkish” Community is treated Western Thrace. in Greece Concepts like democracy, equality and human rights are still blocked by the so-called “national security” when it comes to the “Turks” of Western Thrace! There is no doubt that this is the real reason why ECtHR decisions have not been implemented for 14 years.
“Greece is a structure based on lawlessness and disrespect for human rights in terms of its historical and state base. Retired Rear Admiral Cihat Yaycı, who stated that the latest wiretapping scandal revealed how despotic and distorted the state system at the core of the Greek state is, made the following assessment: It is the most concrete example of how far Greece has moved away from international law . Even in such a big scandal, the state officials of Greece continue to threaten the “Turks” of Western Thrace.
Greece sees the “Turks” of Western Thrace, who are citizens of the country, as a threat to its state codes. They are trying to mitigate even such a big scandal by targeting the “Turks” of Western Thrace, who they consider a “national security problem”. Although the “Turks” of Western Thrace are Greek citizens, they see them as an internal enemy that must be prevented, excluded and assimilated by Greece. Faced with this illegality and dictatorial behavior, all EU institutions, especially the ECtHR, are buried in deep silence.
Today, in Greece, where the concepts of democracy, human rights and law have become ineffective, the greatest oppression and persecution is experienced by the “Turks” of Western Thrace, who are unfortunately characterized as “internal enemies” and exposed to major conspiracies.
Turkey immediately takes the highest and most serious action against such threats, pressures, insults, mistreatment and marginalization of the “Turks” of Western Thrace against all international agreements and obligations, especially the Lausanne Treaty, the United Nations Charter and the European Convention on Human Rights. Turkey must often and de facto declare that it is the protector and guarantor of the rights of the “Turks” of Western Thrace due to its authority derived from international treaties. Western Thrace is no different from Palestine. The world needs to hear this!”
