Dr. Ebubekir Sofuoğlu from Sakarya University has made an extremely curious comment that fully draws in how deep the Turkish-German alliance is by saying that Turkey should invade Greece the same way that Nazi Germany invaded Poland in 1939.
Turkish Media Ombudsman Faruk Bildirici wrote on his website that “hate speech and discrimination in [Turkish] media is rampant.”
On the “Derin Kutu” program on Akit TV on Tuesday, Sofuoğlu said Greece “do not have compulsory military service,” omitting that Greece in fact does have compulsory military service.
However, the professors next comments were the most shocking when he said “just as Hitler suddenly entered Poland, so we can easily enter Greece.”
The Turkish Ombudsman said on his website that “there was not the slightest objection from Sabri Balaman, who directed the program, to this person who said that Greece was full of metrosexuals, who discriminated and was sexist against women, humiliated Greek men, accused them of cowardice, and produced hate speech against the Greek nation. On the contrary, he smiled and the other participants did not object to these words.”
“Journalists who love their country and their people should not use such ‘hate speech’ in relation to another nation. Because this language full of insults is not enough to solve the problems between the two countries, on the contrary, it makes it more difficult. At most, it feeds prejudices and increases hostility between two neighboring nations. Tension, conflict, and above all war, damage both nations. Wars today have no winners,” Bildirici continued to write.
“Turkey, on the Aegean Sea and dissertation on what jurisdiction the Eastern Mediterranean, no matter how justified, difficult to use way to resolve the dispute and not to fight. No matter how the tension has escalated, it should be up to the journalists to make efforts to maintain friendship between the two countries and to resolve the problem through diplomatic means,” he added.
Turkey is one of the lowest ranked countries for media freedoms in the world, is the second most susceptible country surveyed on the European continent and its surrounds to fake news, has the most journalists jailed in the whole world, and 90% of media is government controlled.
