On Sunday, terrorists detonated a bomb in the heart of the capital of Ankara for the third time since October to force politicians to make mistakes.
Having failed to remove the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) from power through elections, the opposition is willing to distort facts and perpetrate terror attacks to get their way.
They want to portray Turkey as a country on the brink of becoming the next Syria.
Efforts to topple the government through extra-parliamentary means have been around for several years. At first, certain intellectuals, blinded by hatred, told the political leadership that "you can't govern the country even if you receive 50 percent of the vote."
Then came the threats: "A military coup is just around the corner." In the aftermath of Sunday's suicide attack, a leftist author asked whether or not his readers had "missed the generals."
It all boils down to preventing elected politicians from governing. Leftist intellectuals, the Gülen Movement and two former U.S. ambassadors now find themselves hand-in-hand with Bashar Assad's regime, DAESH and the PKK, and, of course, the suicide bomber who blew herself up in Ankara on Sunday.
They literally tried everything, but the Gezi Park protests fizzled out and the Gülenist conspiracy to overthrow the government completely backfired.
During the 2014 presidential race, a dozen political parties backed a candidate who ended up being the runner-up.
On June 7, a Kemalist politician told the leader of the PKK's political wing that "we shook them down pretty good." In the end, they fielded the suicide bombers - the dirtiest trick in the book.
First came the DAESH attacks in Suruç and Diyarbakır. Each time, they tried to pin the blame on the government to no avail. The much-anticipated financial crisis never took place and neither did the tourism industry collapse.
As a last resort, the PKK leadership thought they could defeat the Turkish military by hiding in town centers. That did not work out either. Finally, they turned on civilian targets.
This time around, the murderers want to spread fear and pave the way to a coup even though they know that the military option is off the table. Turkey made a lot of progress over the years, as did politicians who will not grab their hats and hold the chair for generals whenever the country faces challenges.
To fuel tensions, certain groups have systematically targeted coffee houses, possibly to pay homage to the turbulent 1970s. They will fail now, as they did countless times before.
Nowhere else in the world would intellectuals, media personalities and politicians call on the government to resign after a terror attack - not before condemning the terrorists, anyway. Exploiting a national tragedy speaks volumes about the opportunists.
Think about 9/11 or the most recent terror attack in Paris. Did anyone, however staunchly opposed to the government, go after the authorities instead of the perpetrators? Such is the state of the opposition in Turkey.
Having shed tears for Paris, certain self-proclaimed patriots, deep inside, cheer for more attacks in Turkey.
This is no longer a question of political differences. It is a matter of right and wrong.
