    Turkey warns Kurds of 'heavy price" after bloodshed - Yahoo! News

    The problem is, that the "Kurdish Nationalists" don't represent the Turkish citizens with Kurdish background.
    Prime Minister Erdogan's party is the party, which gets the biggest "Kurdish" support, again showcased by election results from June 2011.

    Finance Minister Simsek on TV in Kurdish:
    (Video)
    "I am a Kurd and the State's finance is in my hands."
    Mehmet Simsek, nasil bir Kürt oldugunu anlatti


    Video of Deputy Prime Minister Arinc in jury of "Kurd Star" on kurdish-language State-TV. It's a music casting Show:
    TRT HABER - "Kürt Star" Belli Oldu


    There will be written a new constitution within 12 months.
    Both the elected governing party and the biggest opposition party went into elections with this promise, and it is also what the EU "demands" from Turkey. The September 2010 referendum to modify the Constitution was only to be able to re-write the constitution from scratch.
    The so-called "Kurdish Nationalists" who claim to represent the Kurdish people have lost already, the new constitution will cement their status of being a side note.

    The political extension of the PKK (BDP) partake in the general elections. They got 36 Parliamentarian seats out of the available 550 Parliament seats. But they say, that they are the representatives of 20% of Turkey's population with their 36 seats.
    They know, that they don't have enough support for their maximum demands to be taken serious in the Parliament commissions to re-write the constitution.
    Now they make trouble again, the terror acts demonstrate, they are not interested in a peacefull solution. If that's the case, then there is only 1 option: Complete elimination of the PKK scum from this earth.
