The story of three men from Kayseri
Ahmet HAKANThey were three. Abdullah, Şükrü and Hulusi.
Three young men with big hopes for the future.
All three from Kayseri.
All three had studied in Kayseri’s most influential schools.
All three were close to nationalist-religious circles.
They were good friends.
One day Necip Fazıl, a famous poet, during those days had come to Kayseri. They all ran to his conference and had their pictures taken with him.
Later, they all started to go on to their own paths. At the beginning of that journey, their paths crossed at one stage in London.
They met in London and got their pictures taken in parks. And then this happened:
Şükrü became the mayor of Kayseri and later became an advisor to the president.
Abdullah became a minister, prime minister and then president.
Hulusi entered military school. He became the country’s Chief of General Staff.
I am addressing those who are dwelling on thousands of conspiracy theories while posting these three’s youth photos along with comments like “look at the deep relationship.”
Be calm… Don’t bother… Life is not that complicated. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
A question to Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu
Had there been an effective opposition in Turkey, they would have asked this question to him:
You are accusing the Council of Europe of being hostile to Turkey. But this same lot has elected you as the president of the parliamentary assembly of the Council of Europe with the votes they have cast. They were friends of Turkey then and have now become the enemy of Turkey?
A question to Antalya governor
If there are people who drink outside and start bothering others, do what you are supposed to do against them. What is it that you are missing? Regulations? Or people to implement them?
Instead of doing what you are supposed to do, why are you publishing a decree on an alcohol ban and making perception management manipulators happy?
What you are doing is nothing but harm to Antalya, Turkey’s capital of tourism, just ahead of the beginning of the holiday season.
A question to German minister
I wish some common sense to Germany’s Foreign Minister, who said “let’s bring visa-free travel to those who said ‘no’ in the referendum.” Let’s set aside the stupidity of this proposal. How many more votes would the “no” camp get after this proposal?
