Your Excellency,

I am writing you to express my deepest concern over Turkish military actions inside Kurdistan region in Northern Iraq.

The killing of civilians and the destruction of villages, homes and property represent a gross violation of the Geneva conventions.

The Turkish army flattened a series of small villages ranging between 20 and 70 kilometers inside Iraq.

The attacks against civilian Kurds represent an aggressive invasion of the territory of a sovereign state.

Turkey is bound by international law.

The effect of Article 2(4) Charter of the United Nations is very simple. It makes it illegal under international law to use force against another state.

The 1970 Declaration on Principles of International Law describe the duty as one to avoid “military, political, economic or any other form of coercion aimed against the political independence or territorial integrity of any state.”

It is clear that any form of punitive action is illegal. It is also important to note that it is not just the use of force that is prohibited, but the threat of force.

This raises questions as to the legality of Turkey’s determination to continue its military cross-border operations.

Turkey stated that these raids were with consent of the United States and providing intelligence assistance and information to Turkey.

If Turkey is telling the truth, it is unacceptable that the United States, in charge of monitoring Iraqi airspace, authorized Turkey to bomb civilians.

I strongly condemn the Turkish air strikes which were probably designed to terrorize the local Kurdish civilians. The principle that civilians must be protected lies at the heart of the International Law of Armed Conflict.

I urge you to do everything necessary to protect civilian Kurds. I urge you to call upon Turkish government to immediately end the military actions and use dialogue to solve the PKK issue.

A continuous escalation of the conflict will cause more suffering to civilians in the region, which so far has been the stable part of Iraq.

Finally I urge you to ensure in all circumstances the respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and with international and regional human rights instruments ratified by Turkey and Iraq.

I look for your urgent intervention into this matter.

Yours respectfully,

Hevallo Azad.

Dear Readers,
Please copy, sign and send to George Bush.
