Christchurch attack inspired by hatred of Turkey – Turkish politicians

…Ömer Çelik, the spokesperson for the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), said the motivation for the shooting that left 49 people dead in Christchurch was linked to what he described as a “political Russian doll” of enmity towards Muslims.

“On the top layer is animosity to Erdoğan, then the doll inside is animosity towards Turkey. At the base is animosity towards Islam,” Çelik said.
