Sorry but the river Euphrat and Tigris flow in Turkey upstream.

So Turkey is in the position to cut vital water in Syria and Iraq that means WATER WAR!

Iran is doing this with the Zab River while facing accute water shortage (30 million people)

Jailed presidential candidate of HDP makes landmark pre-recorded election speech from prison

http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/jailed ... son-133431

Dear brothers and sisters,

Of course, in democratic regimes, elections are extremely important decision steps. You will elect our representatives who will make the laws and govern the country with your votes. Your decision will concern not only today, but also our future, our children’s and our grandchildren’s future. You will decide which direction the country, which has reached a crucial junction, will be heading on June 24th elections.

If you use your choice with the AKP and Erdoğan, then the fate of the whole country will be between the lips of a single person. The very important authorities of the legislative, judicial and executive powers will be consolidated in one person. There will be no institution to monitor, control or limit even the smallest error that one person will make. The fate of 81 million people will be abandoned altogether at the mercy of that one person.

While the rest of the world will move towards democracy, Turkey will be alienated by an outdated understanding of governance; it will turn into an authoritarian, oppressive, and undemocratic country. All the democratic gains of the Republic, with its pros and cons, will be lost overnight. There won’t be any authority you can apply for injustices that you face under the one man regime. Neither the courts nor the other government offices will be a remedy for you. Everything will be arranged in accordance with the desire, pleasure and interests of one man. You will feel unable to breathe in a regime of fear and despair; you will feel like you are strangled.

I’m not saying this based on my anticipation or predictions, but by looking at what happened in the last few years. What you go through nowadays is only a trailer of the one man regime. The most frightening part of the movie hasn’t even started yet. You will decide whether this fear atmosphere will begin or not with your own votes on 24th June.

I have no doubt that your decision will favor democracy and freedom. Your insubmissive stance despite all this persecution and threats is the guarantee of a bright future for Turkey. There is no need to fall in despair, fear or frustration in the face of this dark picture. There is a serious opportunity ahead of us before entering an obscure dark tunnel. We will evaluate this opportunity together, and you will see that we will pull our country from the edge of a cliff.

Those ignorant bullies who use all of the state’s resources for their election campaigns, with governors and district governors, the judiciary, the media and the entire bureaucracy working under AKP orders, yet still do not manage to full up squares, do not let them discourage you.

They cling on by just one vote. By shouting, insulting and demonizing, these political caricatures think they will get the public to submit but it is not hard to show them who the public are and their strength.

On June 24, when you go to cast your vote be sure to put the two ballots that show you want democracy in the envelope, vote for the HDP and Demirtaş; leave the rest to us. In the evening when the ballot boxes are opened you will see what state those finger-wagging, shouting until their veins pop, fake bullies find themselves! Do not let this opportunity to teach these third-rate small-time politicians who think they are world leaders a lesson. For this reason alone, go vote. Use your right to vote and protect the ballot boxes.

Especially my young friends: you must take on the duty of being election observers wherever you are. In my current situation, I became a candidate placing my trust utmost in women and youth. My resources are very limited here. I am being kept in a high-security cell but I know that you are carrying out the election campaign in my name with joy and conviction. And I know that you will protect the ballot boxes with the same joy and conviction.

Do not worry about me. As long as you are well, I shall be well. As long as you are free, I shall be free. Even if they keep me in this cell for not 20 months but 20 years, I will not submit to this tyranny. For peace, for democracy and freedoms, I will continue my resistance here for your sake. Those who think they can scare us with prison, with cells, with death have become fearful of their own shadows. Let us leave them alone with their fears and walk hand in hand towards sunny, bright days.

And who are we? We are Kurds and Turks, women and men, Alevis and Sunnis, but above all: we are human. We are not superior to one another. Our anger is only directed at tyranny. Our name is Sheikh Bedreddin in Serez’s bazaar. Pir Sultan is one side of us. On the tables of torture, we became Mansur al-Hallaj. We were Ibrahim. We were the oppressed. We were Deniz. We were Hüseyin. Our heads were held high walking to the gallows. We were Yusuf. Our name was Sait in Dağkapı square. If we had submitted to the Bolu Bey, we wouldn’t have gotten the name Köroğlu. We wouldn’t have been Mahir, a symbol of courage. We were Joseph in the well, Hussein in Karbala. Our name is Ahmet Kaya in exile, Yılmaz Güney in prison.

Remember we set off by saying;

When planted, we come back as crop,

When crushed, we come back as flour,

When one of us is gone, we come back in thousands,

Is killing us a way out?

This is why we are different. We are not one man, we are many people. We are not afraid of one man as so many people. We will ride out the storm all together hand in hand for the future of our children. We will not submit to those who threaten us with the death penalty.

On June 24th, don’t put your fear in the envelope that you will cast in the ballot box, but your hopeful message for the future. Say “One vote HDP, one vote for Demirtas.” Give light, hope, peace, and confidence a chance, not darkness, fear or nightmare; let's believe we can do this and let's do it together. Remember, everything changes with you. Come and change it together and we all win.

Before finishing the first part of my speech, that I give in prison, I would like say that I criticize TRT for its unfair treatment, I don’t approve TRT officials’ stance, but that I also salute all the workers of the TRT with respect and clarify that they don’t have any role in this injustice.

With these feelings, I salute you once more with respect, with love, I celebrate your blessed Ramadan, I wish you all happy and hopeful future.

Turkey's Fragile Economy Faces New Risk in U.S. Sanctions Threat

Trump’s warning followed criticism of Turkey by his vice president and secretary of state, and caused the lira to extend losses in late trading. The U.S. diplomatic offensive was aimed at securing the release of Andrew Brunson, an evangelical minister detained on charges of involvement in a failed 2016 coup in Turkey. He was moved from jail to house arrest earlier this week. But that didn’t satisfy Trump, who demanded on Twitter that “this innocent man of faith should be released immediately.”
