Cancel the visit and evict Er
dogan Sultan for showing the Muslim brother greeting in public.

p.s. Sent the 23% Turkish Hartz IV ( the long-term unemployed (‘Arbeitslosenhilfe’) and the welfare benefits) recipients along. Or all the Turkish working migrants since they as a group cannot feed themselves and are fed by the Germans.

Most recent Syrian refugees speak German better after two years than Turks after 20.

Yup! Same here : enough of these parasites coming only to sück our blood.
We have already millions of indigenous unemployed and are overpopulated. Why don’t they want to go to countries which REALLY need manpower?
Oh yeah, because we have better welfare systems!
And a good “Wurst” is tastier than any kebab…

It’s clear that if you land a foot in the EU, since you praise Hellbollah which’s armed branch is banned as a terrorist group by the EU, we’ll have one more terrorist… And one more parasite sucking the blood out of our welfare system too…
