The things European politicians have had to listen to from Recep Tayyip Erdo?an! Over the 14 years of his administration, this charismatic Turkish leader has managed to tally up a long list of the sins committed by the European Union and has often promised to make the EU pay a price for each of them.
European politicians have not yet recovered from the spiritual traumas he inflicted on them with his insults last year. Erdo?an had a very blunt reaction to their condemnation of his harsh suppression of last year’s coup attempt in Ankara. And the Germans got their comeuppance for the resolution passed by their Bundestag recognizing the Armenian genocide from the early 20th century.
And then a new bomb went off. Now the Turkish president has overreached himself, and the Germans were once again the first to fall into his cross-hairs. Germany’s leaders have been accused of acting like Nazis!
Last Sunday Recep Erdo?an assembled thousands of people at a rally in Istanbul, where he told them, «I’m going to get the whole world stirred up! Germany, you’re nothing like a democracy, and you should know that what you’re doing now is no different from the Nazi practices of the past. You lecture us about democracy, but then you won’t let our ministers speak there. We will discuss Germany’s actions in an international forum and we will shame you in the eyes of the whole world. We don’t want to see Nazis in Germany anymore. We thought that was a bygone era, but apparently it isn’t. I’ll go to Germany when I want, and if you don’t let me in, I’ll make the world rise to its feet!»
