Turkey’s Muslim-Brotherhood-supporting president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan was unhappy about a poem a German satirist created about him. President Erdogan messaged German Chancellor Angela Merkel, she of the take millions of Muslim refugees into Europe infamy, and demanded that Turkey be allowed to prosecute the German comedian.
Read that again if you must. Turkey’s Erdogan demanded he be able to file charges against a German citizen over satire – and Chancellor Merkel has since agreed to allow that very thing.
Merkel’s defense is to say that by allowing the foreign Muslim leader’s request to charge a German citizen with the crime of satire, it will prove the German legal system “works.” She makes no mention of simply throwing out the case and telling Mr. Erdogan to pound sand. No, instead she once again bends grotesquely to the will of an offended Muslim leader.
Angela Merkel is agreeing to put one of her own citizens on trial for mocking a Muslim thug with deep ties to ISIS as outline by this 2015 report:
“… reported of Erdogan’s deep collaboration with ISIS through logistics, intelligence and satellite imagery. Egyptian intelligence, according to WND, reported “Turkish intelligence is passing to ISIS satellite imagery and other data, with particular emphasis on exposing to ISIS jihadists the positions of Kurdish fighters and the storage locations of their weapons and munitions.”
The Turkish government has been among the loudest proponents of further Muslim immigration into both Europe and the United States, as well as being a country that has militarily pushed back against Russia’s recent war on ISIS in Syria. Now that influence apparently extends into the very legal system of non-Muslim nations.
This is madness of the most dangerous kind.
And yet, did not Barack Obama signal this very thing not so long ago as he declared to the world he would not tolerate those who, “…slander the prophet of Islam.”
Apparently that future is now.
