As we deepen the investigation, based on the [information obtained about] Twitter accounts and IP addresses, there is a high possibility that Daesh [Arabic name for ISIL] and the PKK have played an effective role in the bombing.Uh, but wait. Aren't the PKK and the Islamic State bitter enemies, with the the PKK scoring major successes against ISIS in Kurdistan?
Well, yes. The Middle East is full of conspiracy theories in which claims are made of improbable alliances, such as allegations that the US and Iran are plotting against the Gulf, or Israel and the Muslim Brotherhood against Egypt. But usually we don't hear this sort of thing from a Prime Minister, especially the Prime Minister of a major regional power and a NATO member as well. It's the realm of sensational newspaper reports or talk show hosts. (Though at least the Freemasons weren't included.)
About the only thing the PKK and ISIS have in common is the hostility of the Turkish government in the midst of a highly divisive election campaign. But then, the region still has an Alice in Wonderland feel (and I don't mean just the "Off with their heads!" part):
"Alice laughed: "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
