Thanks for the completely irrelevant exposition, but my point was “rest of turkey is not even close to danger from isis” is a misstatement. ISIS might not have taken responsibility for the bombing, however in any case it is clear that it was done with a parallel Islamist agenda in mind. The bomb went off at a peace rally in the center of the Turkish capital, killed & maimed many Turks and Kurds alike -not only HDP members but also members of other political parties (CHP included) and activist groups, mind you-, with a death toll of 100 and more. Bombs also don’t tend to distinguish between Kurd and Turk, or between activist and bystander; so your last sentence is moot. This is what it all boils down to: a suicide bomber can target anywhere and you might happen to be at the same place and get killed. Doesn’t matter what ethnicity you belong to or what political views you have; if that doesn’t constitute “living under constant threat” I don’t know what does.
