The reason why Ragip Zarakolu got in trouble was because of his links to the KCK, not his views on Armenian and Kurdish issues. The KCK is linked directly to the PKK terrorist group and the KCK members have not declared any of their views on exposing the PKK terrorist for what they are. Zarakolu also needs to renounce the KCK for what they are. Even sympathizers of Kurdish Seperatism and the "Hye Tahd" such as Taner Akcam have written articles criticising the PKK for terrorism.
