Satire in Germany attacking Erdogan and Turkish politics Lately there has been a lot of controversy in Germany over the issue of political satire criticising Erdogan and his regime in Turkey.

Erdogan, Genocide, and ISIS – The Sultan is Doomed

By Michael Collins Turkish President Recep Teyyip Erdogan’s attempts to demonize the Syrian Kurd’s YPG army and threaten and bully the United States are having the net effect of creating a powerful movement for his removal based on a rationale that will encourage the public in the United States and Europe to forget the real culprits in the tragic attack on Syria and focus on charges of genocide leveled against
