Turkish President Erdogan is no Anjem Choudary, dismissed by the leftists as ‘fringe hate preacher.’ Erdogan is no fringe! The population of Turkey is approximately the same the population of Germany and he is set to rule it for some years to come.
The disastrous rise of Islamophobia and xenophobia across Europe reveals that the multicultural and pluralist nature of the European Union was already damaged.
The EU’s commitment to respect freedom and human rights of minority groups based on race, religion and ethnicity has seemingly failed as no strong sanctions imposed by the EU is sufficient enough to halt widespread hatred toward the Muslim community living in different European countries.
Respect for human rights, fundamental freedoms and democracy are the “principles upon which the European Union is founded and which are common to the member states.”
The EU considers xenophobia as a violation of human rights and the EU’s fundamental rules. A broad set of rules to tackle different forms and manifestations of racism and xenophobia under the Framework Decision on combating racism and xenophobia was introduced and initiated by the European Union in 2008.
The European Commission is “to monitor closely the implementation of the EU’s rules on racism and xenophobia at the national level. According to the EU treaty, all acts of public incitement to violence and hatred on the basis of religion and race or national, ethnic origin would be penalized “by means of criminal law.”
However, the EU’s pluralist stance has failed on the national ground recalling the German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s statement over multicultural German society.
Merkel said in 2010 that the “multikulti” as it is known in Germany where people would live side-by-side happily – failed, signaling that more integrationist policies for immigrants would be implemented…
Remember that Erdogan had the nerve to say that assimilation was a crime against humanity in 2008, while he was visiting Germany: Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has told Turks living in Europe that they do not need to assimilate into their host societies. Erdogan was addressing an audience of 20,000 Turks gathered in Cologne on Sunday. The audience included Turks living in France, Belgian and the Netherlands, as well as in Germany.
He spoke a similar vein during a 2011 visit: Erdogan Urges Turks Not to Assimilate: ‘You Are Part of Germany, But Also Part of Our Great Turkey’: Erdogan wants to give his audience a clear identity. “They call you guest workers, foreigners, or German Turks. It doesn’t matter what they all call you: You are my fellow citizens, you are my people, you are my friends, you are my brothers and sisters!”
He does not seem to think that he part of the problem. As a good Islamic supremacist, why should he? He apparently got no negative feedback from the German government despite his outrageous behaviour in 2008.
A nation of dhimmis indeed. Ripe for the taking. A few protest, but they in the minority, fighting against the entire ‘elite crowd,’ who are wealthy and control the entire press.
