    [07] FROM THE COLUMNS…FROM THE COLUMNS…FROM THE COLUMNS

    [08] OUT FROM UNDER THE PKK SHADOW BY FERAI TINC (HURRIYET)

    Columnist Ferai Tinc comments on the fight against terrorism. A summary of his column is as follows:

    “If the Justice and Development Party (AKP) doesn’t block it, Parliament will meet today to discuss the problem of terrorism. I hope common sense will prevail over narrow political calculations and the Republican People’s Party’s (CHP) call for an extraordinary session will become reality. Interior Minister Abdulkadir Aksu previously said, ‘Everybody should know that without addressing the conditions and atmosphere expected by terrorism, we cannot reach an exact result in the fight against it.’ Even such a statement shows that it is understood the issue must be discussed comprehensively. Those who are trying to reap political benefits from this issue will harm themselves. Terrorism and places and conditions in which it develops can be eradicated, and the sources off which it feeds can be cut by showing that it’s not the solution. How can we do this? The answer to this should be discussed in order to find a common path. Otherwise, the fight against terrorism will go to the military just like in the past. National socialists and neo-Nazis have started to prepare this way. We can talk neither about interests nor about security without dispelling the current atmosphere in which ethnic nationalisms stoke each other.

    Politicians speaking on behalf of the Kurds should now take risks. A new political path can’t begin without excluding those who turn funerals into forums for politics and pump Kurdish nationalism and try to turn the nation against state forces. Why did former Democracy Party (DEP) members fail to make concrete suggestions and signal positive developments in spite of all their political experience and their supporters? Because they were unable to get out from under the PKK shadow. They didn’t embrace the friendly hands held out for them, and this situation was reflected in their politics. They could neither make their words clear nor forge an alliance. What’s the current situation? Even Europe, which lauded their ‘peaceful ways,’ is calling on them to save themselves from the PKK. Politics in Turkey can get away from the PKK in the fight against PKK terrorism. This is the problem of not only politicians who claim to do politics on behalf of the Kurds, but in fact all of Turkey. All of us should make efforts to achieve this.”
