CHP deputies call on gov’t for ‘security package’ against ISIL
CİHAN PhotoThe government should focus on adopting “a security package” against jihadists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) if it is really keen in its claim for providing the security of its citizens, a senior executive of main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) said on Feb. 19.
Turkey is facing a grave security risk, yet, instead of dealing with the real threat, the government is presenting “a package of oppression” as if it is about providing security, while hiding the danger created by ISIL and similar “radical monsters,” CHP Deputy Chair Şafak Pavey said at a joint press conference along with along with a group of fellow CHP deputies, including Hasan Akgöl, Mevlüt Dudu, Refik Eryılmaz, Atilla Kart, Osman Korutürk, Ali Özgündüz and Mehmet Şeker.
“We are passing through one of the darkest eras of Middle Eastern history. The government is personally a planner and implementer of this darkness. They handed our border over to barbarians who are the residue of savage ages in order to get the Muslim Brotherhood mentality settled,” Pavey said.
“How do they plan to cope with this disaster that they have created against today and the future? MİT [National Intelligence Organization] has its finger on the pulse in regard to every detail of this dark army,” she said. “If the government is really interested in our security, then, for the security of all of us, we are waiting for the security package it will draft against radical terror: ISIL; not the one [the package] that is against our citizens,” she said.
