Erdogan Sings Songs Of Peace

There are over a million people of Turkish descent living in Germany and many date back to first arriving about fifty years ago. Turkish heritage people now play important roles in the life of Germany from government to industry. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan was visiting Germany and addressed a crowd of 20,000 supporters while a crowd estimated to be 70,000 shouted words of protest regarding his actions as leader of Turkey. He boasted to the crowd how his Justice and Development Party had transformed Turkey into a great nation and bemoaned the presence of prejudice in Germany against those of Turkish heritage. Erdogan was critical of the European Union and of failure on the part of the German government to end prejudice against Turks. He even complained about the EU failing to somehow be responsible for lack of human rights in Bangladesh.

For the record: Under the Erdogan administration, the economy of Turkey has grown. He has aided Turkey to become a modern nation. He also has made Turkey the number one nation in the world with members of the media in jail. He has crushed strikes against his government by Turkish students and has done little to end discrimination against Alevi people in Turkey.

It is not surprising that Erdogan supports the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt which, when in power, violated human rights and even today continues its violence against Coptic Christians.
