With the implicit approval of the KDP administration, ditches are being dug on the South Kurdistans (KRG) border with Rojava.

With the implicit approval of the KDP administration, ditches are being dug on the South Kurdistan’s (KRG) border with Rojava. The people of Rojava have been reacting against this for days. The border ditches and the resulting tension have caused anger and disturbance in the Kurdish public opinion.
The ditch digging was quite an unexpected development for the Kurdish public opinion. Just like everybody else, we were astonished by this. Such a tension is a misfortune, especially at a time when the importance of national unity is increasing and there are so many discussions about the national congress. The Rojava revolution is a source of inspiration and motivation for all the Kurds. The uprising of one part of Kurdistan and the establishment of a free and democratic life there is a very valuable issue. So, possible problems should be settled through dialogue and mutual understanding. The ditch digging tension implies a negative development for the Kurds while it makes the enemies of the Kurds happy, for they have always benefited from the divisions and problems among the Kurds. Therefore, the problems should be resolved through political means without giving way to any tensions and divisions. No solution methods other than dialogue and political means should be preferred. In today’s modern world, where different communities and states accommodate their differences through dialogue and political means, the Kurds, too, should follow such methods in settling their differences.
The entire Kurdish people, political groups, and political parties have obligations and responsibilities towards the Rojava revolution. It is what is expected from the KDP and KRG administration, too. All the Kurds expect the KRG administration to feel itself responsible towards the Rojava administration and settle the differences politically based on dialogue and mutual understanding. Therefore, at a time when everybody is looking forward for the elimination of barbed wires and walls dividing Kurdistan, digging border ditches on the Rojava border is quite an eye-opening move. All Kurds expect the KDP to leave such implementations, for the Rojava people are negatively affected by recent political tensions. At a time when many internationally known intellectuals, writers, and politicians call for solidarity with Rojava revolution, the KDP is also expected to give political support to the Rojava revolution.
While many internationally distinguished perosnalities have entered into solidarity with the Rojava revolution, our people and the political forces in all parts of Kurdistan should protect the revolution. It’s high time to embrace and defend the Rojava revolution. The terrorist bandits, backed by many regional and international forces, attack the Rojava revolution; so, this revolution should not be left alone. The support for Rojava revolution should not be limited to material or spiritual help only; everybody should help defending it. Not only the Kurdish people, but also all the peoples in the world and the democratic and revolutionary forces should side with the Rojava revolution.
The people of Rojava have made such a revolutionary move that it will not only change the fate of Syria, but also determine the fate of the entire Middle East. As the Kurds are establishing a free and democratic community for themselves, they have at the same time taken great steps towards transforming Syria into a free and democratic country. As it has already been observed, this revolution will influence all the Middle East.
As we highlight our support for the Rojava revolution which has displayed a great and multi-dimensional resistance in recent days, we call on the entire Kurdish people, the Kurdish political parties and democratic forces to help and side with the Rojava revolution.
