Reverting to old methods in fighting terror meaningless: MHP head Bahçeli
AA photoReverting to old methods in the fight against terrorism is meaningless, Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) leader Devlet Bahçeli has said, commenting on the deadly terror attack in Istanbul’s Reina nightclub, which claimed 39 lives in the early hours of Jan. 1.
“The systematic and periodical murders of terrorism will not stop in 2017 either. Insisting on old habits and already-tested methods are meaningless,” Bahçeli said on his official Twitter account.
“You cannot achieve different results by doing the same thing. Along with classic precautions and security policies, a full-scale pressure should be put on terror,” he added.
Bahçeli also said there should be a need for a mutual mind and national unity for the existence of the country, instead of engaging in a condemnation race against terror.
He said the country’s future, national unity and independence have been targeted with terror attacks, adding that the entire nation was “at the bottom of the bloody barrel.”
He stressed that terrorists and terror organizations were puppets hiding behind their monster powers plotting against Turkey and the Middle East, while adding that they will not be able to divide the country, no matter what they do.
