Racist extremism is becoming a norm in Germany, which is alarming not only for the Germans but also for a Europe that suffered a catastrophe at the hands of the Nazis during World War II.
The latest is a scandal that occurred in the heart of Berlin. A brand new car was placed outside the chancellor's office and a banner with the pictures of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Vladimir Putin and King Salman of Saudi Arabia was opened in front of it, reading that anyone who kills "the dictators" would win the automobile.
Unfortunately this is a mentality in Germany that is on the rise and this is not an exception but a general trend. There is a growing number of Germans who feel great enmity toward President Erdoğan, Russian leader Putin and now King Salman has been added to this list.
Erdoğan and Putin are attending the upcoming G-20 summit in Hamburg on July 7-8, while King Salman has announced he will not be traveling to Germany.
What is sad is that this enmity toward Erdoğan and Putin has been fueled by the policies of the German government and this is not only an irresponsible act but it is also criminal.
It was the German government that promoted a campaign against the constitutional changes in Turkey, which were approved in the April 16 referendum. The German government used its ARD TV to try to convince Turks not to approve the constitutional changes thus directly interfering in Turkey's internal affairs.
To add insult to injury the German government also banned Turkish politicians from attending rallies or conferences in Germany to explain to the 3 million Turks living there about the merits of the constitutional changes.
Germans have prevented President Erdoğan from addressing Turks in Germany numerous times. Now that Erdoğan is coming to Germany for the G-20 summit they are also doing everything to prevent him from getting together with the Turks in the country.
Yet, the same German authorities are turning a blind eye to the activities of the PKK terrorist organization in Germany. The PKK is allowed to organize demonstrations on German streets and applaud the terrorist secessionist war in Turkey.
German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has acknowledged this is a great mistake on the part of the Berlin administration and has said the posters of PKK terrorist leader Abdullah Öcalan should not be allowed at PKK rallies.
Nonetheless he has not said the PKK, which is on the list of terrorist organizations in Germany, should not be allowed to hold rallies in the German streets.
As if this were not enough, Germany is also extending a helping hand to the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ), which tried to stage a bloody coup in Turkey last July and failed. Foreign Minister Gabriel also admitted that Germany was too slow to react to the coup and show support for Turkey.
However, he did not explain why the Germans have been so eager to provide shelter to at least 500 Gülen supporters who actively took part in the bloody coup attempt and then fled from Turkey. He also did not explain why Germany is trying so hard to extend political asylum to these criminals and murderers.
So the German authorities have already sowed the seeds of enmity toward Turkey and Erdoğan, which, to say the least, is extremely sad.
Despite all this we are now witnessing with horror what the German extremists are being allowed to do in the name of "freedom of expression." Germany is allowing extremists to call for the murder of three prominent world leaders.
Shame on Germany, and shame on Angela Merkel.
