Demanding An Answer



Twice now, I have started writing up a blog response to the recent bombings in Ankara. Twice now I’ve deleted it with the thought, “I can’t post this. This will get me kicked out.” I will just leave it at that and let you guess my mind and opinions. Instead, I have a few questions that I am not seeing often enough in the media:

  1. Why would the PKK (the Kurdish workers party) be on the government’s shortlist of prime suspects for the bombing at a pro Kurd rally?
  2. If ISIL really did this, why have they STILL not taken credit? They have never been shy of doing so up to now?
  3. Why would Turkey respond to the terrorist bombing of Kurds in Ankara by… bombing Kurds elsewhere? (
  4. How could Selami Altinok, the head of the Ministry of the Interior, get behind a camera and say that there is no security gap when a bomb just detonated a couple miles from the National Intelligence Agency?
  5. Why did the riot police come in and start launching pepper spray and using water cannons on those trying to help the injured and the victims of the bombing?
  6. What were these same police doing before that bomb went off?
  7. Why did the police block the entry of ambulances to the scene for over a half hour?
  8. Why are the main news media sources (like the BBC) very pointedly avoiding real questions like these and parroting the AKP’s party line?
  9. Will this now be used as an excuse to “delay” the November 1 elections?
  10. When will the Kurdish people have a country and a land they can call their own?

  1. Not sure what we read here is accurate, but it is eye-opening, and far more than the television news says (Washington Post/Worldview). Your questions make sense after reading it.

    Jesus said, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16;33

    May the Kurds know the peace of Jesus wherever they be. May we all know His peace in the midst of political chaos.

  2. These are only a few of the questions that anybody might pose over these events. If it is any consolation or hope, from what I read in newspapers all over the world and talk with people, very few people, if any, trust anymore the official (Turkish) media point of view. May His peace reign amidst such political chaos.


    1. It isn’t just the Turkish media. Until they banned all media talk about the bombings, the rest of the world was spouting off the same party line. It wasn’t until after there was a media ban that other news agencies began to get critical.


      1. Of course, it is not just the Turkish media. This is why I put it in a parenthesis. Don’t you worry. Citizens are gradually waking up all over the world. What if other news agencies do not begin to get critical? Mass media always spread “convenient” lies. Don’t you worry. Facts scream!!


  3. This has to be a tough position for you and your country… I think you should speak on the matter
    A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of. Luke 6:45 (NIV). Walk in love! Naomi
