Erdogan compares Merkel and Schulz with Nazis

Thursday, September 7th, 2017 | World News

Turkey's accession to the EU is a pass for Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel and her SPD challenger Martin Schulz. Debt is the repressive policy of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The reacted now – with a Nazi comparison.

In a speech in Ankara, Erdogan expressed indignation at the fact that Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) and SPD leader Martin Schulz had brought an end to the EU accession negotiations in their TV duel.

"This process is Nazism, it is fascism," he said. Erdogan avoided spurning the two German top politicians personally as Nazis, but he said that their behavior was in this direction: "I'm not saying you're a Nazi, a fascist," Erdogan said.

  Repeatedly accused of "Nazi methods"
Erdogan's remarks are part of a series of sharp verbal attacks by Turkish politicians on German colleagues. The President had already accused the federal government in the spring of already using "Nazi methods" because it had forbidden its Ministers election campaigns in Germany before the referendum on the new Turkish constitution.

A few weeks ago, Erdogan called for Turkish voters in Germany not to vote for CDU, SPD or Greens during the Bundestag elections because these parties are hostile to Turkey. Turkish champion Ömer Celik accused German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel (SPD) two weeks ago of "racism".

 German-Turkish relations are currently at a low point. Reasons for the tensions are, among other things, the criticism of the federal government on Erdogan's harsh government after the failed coup attempt of last year and the arrest of German citizens in Turkey.
