The horrific attack at Suruç and on the same day the armed clash at Adıyaman came at a time when some kind of happiness, reconciliation and ease was about to arrive in the country… Before being able to enjoy any of them, a disaster happens.

Everybody, according to the place they stand politically or according to the talk they hear around them, has their own theory or conspiracy about Suruç:

- The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) did it. Since the slain young people had set out to rebuild Kobane, this is the first theory one can think of. It could be. Because Turkey has recently voiced its opposition against ISIL for the first time, their deal may be with Turkey more than the Kurds.

- Some dark circles effective within the state did it. It is possible that peace and reconciliation do not suit the books of some people and/or for different reasons they support ISIL and/or for right or wrong reasons they are against a Kurdish canton at the border. Can’t there be some people who would provoke the Kurds and use the incidents that would erupt as tools for polarization? There could be.

- Certain political guys who want to marginalize the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) did it. Those who do not regard it as genuine that the Kurdish political movement represents the whole of Turkey, who do not like that they have crossed the election threshold and even those who do not want a coalition may aim to stir things up.

- The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) did it. This is also a theory. Upon the deadlock in talks, they may want to restart the “war” in the southeast. Is it a coincidence that the clash at Adıyaman happened simultaneously? 

- International forces did it. This was done to clarify Turkey’s position against ISIL and/or to start the Turk/Kurd war and/or only to sell weapons to the region… All of it is possible. 

I know the truth! I have the answer to who did it and why. 

Let me draw the police sketch: The criminal is one that does not want peace and welfare in the region. It does not like the Kurds or the Turks. Most probably does not like the Arabs. The criminal does not care a bit about the happiness of those who live in Turkey nor those who live in Syria. 

It is clear that he loves arms. It is definite he is thrilled by the idea of a civil war in Turkey. The criminal may be from one of the theoretical groups above or from a couple of them. He could be in an alliance.  

Who is he then? Does it matter who? 

If those who want peace and those who love this country come together and stand up against him, then who is he anyway?
Providing own security?  

“Now, our people have to provide their own security…” This quote from HDP co-chair Selahattin Demirtaş could have meant anything, but then he continued, “Our provincial and district organizations should take their own security measures…” 

Each political party can provide the security for its buildings with several methods, including bullet-proof doors and special teams. This is logical. 

It was the non-existent conjunction between the two sentences that constituted the problem, I guess…
After the scary first sentence, if there were “in other words,” we would have breathed a sigh of relief. 
But it sounded like there was an “and” in between the two sentences. It was of course very troubling. 

Thankfully, Demirtaş’s explanation came one day later, saying that it was not a call for armament, but a call for party organizations to increase their security measures. 

In such tense times, one conjunction, one word may have crucial significance…
