Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday launched a scathing new verbal attack against Greece, saying there is “no difference” between Nazis and the Greek authorities.
He was referring to the Greek security forces at Evros where they are trying to hold the country’s border against the influx of thousands of migrants and refugees who have been spurred to push into the European Union by Ankara.
“There is no difference between what the Nazis did and the images we are seeing from the Greek border,” Erdogan told a meeting of his AKP Party’s parliamentary group in Ankara.
The Turkish President also referred to the Greek authorities as “barbarians” and “fascists.”
Last week, Erdogan refused to meet with Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
“Greece persecutes those people,” he had said, going on to repeat his carefully orchestrated Turkish propaganda of migrants being killed at Evros and the Aegean.
“As far as I follow, they (Greek police) have killed at least five people. In addition to that, they stabbed the rubber boats of migrants to sink them, which is a cruel practice,” Erdogan was quoted as saying by Turkey’s Daily Sabah newspaper.
“Those politicians (Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis) should know that human life is not cheap,” Erdogan reportedly said in this most recent diatribe.
Fate has it that Greece, exactly 2500 years after stopping an invasion from the East to the West, still has to fight -and still alone- to stop the megalomaniac plans of a modern-day Xerxes and his army of exploited humans. Full story: https://bit.ly/2TcP2Kq
