On November 11, 2004, a Turkish newspaper, Radikal, ran a story with a headline, "Kulp'ta Toplu Mezar." For those of you who don't know the language of our oppressors, it translates as, Mass Grave in Kulp. I remember reading the news the way you Americans read your election results or watch your Super Bowl or follow the stock market.

The burning candle in "Zahak's dungeon"; a dungeon, with "walls as high as history itself" but so insufficient to mute you. These walls are not enough to conceal your height from your people's sight and to darken the rays of your candle light. These walls are humbled and amused by the loftiness of your stature. The walls long have been used as the site of horror and exhibition of tyrants' might. They are erected to tear down freedom lovers' "will, love and humanity and to make them as obedient and docile as an obedient lamb."
