On Sunday, February 21, a video was posted on zougla.gr entitled “Well done lion!”, Which allegedly described a speech by a Kurdish member of the Turkish parliament, in which he praised the Greeks and the Kurds and denounced the Turks as Mongols and said that, When there was civilization in these lands, the Turks collected hay for the ponies. This video, which has been circulating on the internet since 2016, is quite popular and has been seen by many Greeks.
What is written in the video in Greek, which concerns the so-called Turkish MP, of Kurdish origin, is false and non-existent. The translation has absolutely nothing to do with what the MP is submitting from the floor of the Turkish parliament. There is no reference to Greece or Armenia, there is no reference to Mongolia or Mongols and finally there is absolutely no reference to fields, hay or horses. The Kurdish MP refers to the activities of the Turkish security forces in southeastern Turkey during that period (2016). The Turkish MP points out that there have been and still are many victims from the activity of the Turkish security forces in the ranks of the Kurdish element in southeastern Turkey.
Both at the exact time of the MP’s speech (1.05 ΄ minutes) and at 1.51 ΄ the politician mentions data that relate exclusively to the activity of the Turkish security forces in the Kurdish areas of Turkey.
Watch this video:
Many thanks to the readers who warned us with their comments about the striking inaccuracy of the translation of the Kurdish MP’s speech in the Turkish parliament. We checked the translation with two Turkish-speaking colleagues and immediately ascertained the extent of the distortion of that speech.
We in turn point out how dangerous it is for such fake data and information to circulate on the internet, which, however, are believed by a large number of citizens without of course reflecting on political reality and simply “caressing” the ears of extremists in Greek society.
Therefore, we withdraw the post on Sunday, February 21 and invite our readers to intervene when they find inaccuracies and errors in the posts.
