Turkey 'Hears Footsteps of Fascism' Reviving in Germany - Deputy Prime Minister

Kurdish pro-democracy march in Germany

Turkish politicians have repeatedly slammed Germany for turning a blind eye to terrorist organizations such as the PKK. They rally together in solidarity.

Germany on Monday branded as "unacceptable" Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's charge that Chancellor Angela Merkel was using "Nazi measures", but signalled it wanted to avoid escalating the feud.

Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus on Monday said Turkey was using metaphors about facism because it was anxious that European countries were forgetting their history and falling into the trap of Nazism once again.

"You are right now employing Nazi measures".

The German government has attempted Monday to calm tensions with Turkey over the terrorist group PKK's rally in the city of Frankfurt, citing local authorities' responsibility.

Almost 3 million Turkish immigrants live in Germany, and around half are eligible to vote in Turkey's April 16 referendum on the proposed constitutional change for a transition to a presidential system of governance. Would this suit the ethics of politics?

He added that the BND comments were "a sign of their [Germans'] support for Feto", an acronym for the label "Fethullah terrorist organisation".

Erdogan has previously said that both the German and Dutch governments egaged in "Nazi practices" after each country prevented Turkish ministers from campaigning at events for expatriate voters ahead of an April referendum in Turkey that would expand Erdogan's power.

The German foreign minister, Sigmar Gabriel, and European Commission president, Jean Claude-Juncker, reacted to the tirade in strong terms.

German lawmakers from across the political spectrum also voiced concern about reports that Turkish consulates had confiscated passports of Turks in Germany.

"Turkey is definitely further away from becoming a member of the European Union than ever before", he said.

"That is not the way a democratic government treats its citizens", he said.
