Mr. Adnan Oktar has long been stating that “the YPG is the same with the PKK” and providing many proofs to verify his stance. He says that the YPG is a communist, Stalinist, atheistic structure that does not abide by the Qur’an.
After his statements, some government members followed suit. Recently, Mr. Bahçeli said, “The PKK is equal to the PYD”.

ADNAN OKTAR: The PKK established the PYD (and its armed wing the YPG) in 2003 when it withdrew into the interiors of Syria. Their headquarters are on Qandil Mountains as well as those of the PKK. Their leader is also Abdullah Öcalan, the leader of the PKK. They are no different in terms of their ideologies, their terrorist their acts and their targets. They use the same terrorists. They only have different names. That is why, every support given to the PYD in Syria amounts to supporting terrorism.

ADNAN OKTAR: The YPG is a communist, Stalinist, atheistic structure that does not abide by the Qur'an. The Kurds are different from the PKK members, Kurds are well-mannered people. They fear God, they love God. They are the people of moral perfection; they are noble people. The YPG is a bunch of bad lots, the YPG is the other name of the PKK.
The YPG is the PKK. It is impossible not to comprehend this. But of course it is essential to continue to provide comprehensive information.
We need to be insistent in enlighteining the West if we want to solve this problem. Especially the US.

ADNAN OKTAR: The issue of the PYD being a terrorist organization... External powers try to make the Turkish nation accept the YPG and the PYD.... Let's strongly emphasize as a nation that we have a resolute stance against the PYD and the YPG. Legitimate meetings can be held. Even mass meetings can be held in order to say "No to the YPG and the PYD, No to the PKK". We can prepare legal posters which say, “YPG=the PYD= the PKK”.
Let's draw attention of Europe and the world to the PYD and the YPG by holding legal meetings, that is, by employing democratic methods. MIT (The Turkish national intelligence service) must inform the press. MIT must have a lot of information about the YPG and the PYD.

ADNAN OKTAR: My articles appear in many international newspapers advocating that the PYD is equivalent to the PKK. The same holds true for the YPG. These articles appeared in the newspapers of many countries such as Russia, Iran, Israel etc. We also warned the USA many times.
Politicians should repeatedly indicate this inside and outside the country. The PYD and the YPG should be shown as terrorists and anarchists everwhere in the world.

ADNAN OKTAR: .... The founders of the PYD and the PKK are the same. They have the same ideology, the same leader, the same flag etc. The Turkish courts made a verdict and said: "the YPG is a terrorist organization". This is sufficient.

ADNAN OKTAR: The PYD is a branch of the PKK. Its mastermind is Abdullah Öcalan. We shouldn't trust any of them. They are no different from one another. They act altogether. You are overtly a terrorist organization. You kill people day and night.
