Erdogan just confirms what we've known for a long time. No need to fight the west, only out breed them.

Erdogan calls on Turkish families in Europe to have five children to protect against 'injustices'
That is incredible!

The interesting part is Turks in Europe support him more than people in Turkey

After decades there is zero integration.

I saw some photos of Rotterdam incident Turks, possibly Dutch citizens, showing the police Turkish flag

Multiculturalism has failed in Europe, that is a fact.

These people are just living in their enclaves like how they would in their country.

This isn't immigration.

They should all arrest them and parachute them into Ankara for all I care. If they love that place so much, they ought to live there IMO.

There are around a third of a million Turks in Holland and a few hundred turned up at a demonstration that they were probably paid to attend.

From this you conclude multiculturalism has failed in Europe, you are weak on both facts and logic.

I recommend you do some proper research

Correct. Only not the way he thinks.
With non-turkish-partners. I always said if we mingle enough and the entire family consists of 10 and more nations nobody will be racist anymore. That is a fact and I was always serious about it.

I like the way you're thinking there. In my close family we have members from Britain, Spain, Brazil, South Africa, Greece, Algeria, Jamaica, St Lucia, Sint Maarten and Belgium, and I'm not even including any second cousins in that list or we'd be here all night. Unfortunately, we still have one racist in the family, but she's thick as two short planks anyway so we just ignore her ramblings.

You do not know the "rent a crowd" concept; naive

Exactly what Merkel's comments about Germany seven years ago have to do with the situation in Holland today is a mystery!

Quote:
Multiculturalism usually has a positive connotation, but to Merkel it symbolizes the emergence of isolated societies within Germany — and ultimately a failure of assimilating immigrants.
Her policy toward the issue is supposed to avoid the creation of suburbs such as the areas around Paris, for instance, where young immigrants are isolated from the rest of society.

A few world leaders tell us that multiculturalism has failed. Must all be BS and sweeping generalisations. I'm sooooo pissed off

The worst thing is they said this 6 years ago and did nothing (apart from Merkel who invited 1.5 million wanderlings to come and stay). The political landscape we see in Europe today is very much related to this.

Well the fun thing is that people have different (and opposing) views of the meaning of the word " multiculturalism".
Some believe it means integration has happened and others believe it means the opposite.

The benefit of this is that we can all post and be correct

As this thread is about Turkey I would claim that integration was "high" but is failing as firstly Erdogan turns Turkey from a secular state into an Islam state supported by increasing violence by his supporters and secondly as Erdogan is conducting a civil war against the Kurds.

Re: What is happening in Turkey tonight?

Here you are Marton :

Quote:
Kiel: Turk butchers his wife in front of school

Today Kiel was “enriched” with the experience of an Islamic honor murder. On Wednesday morning at about 9am in the Kiel district of Neumühlen-Dietrichsdorf, in close proximity to the Toni Jensen non-denominational school and day care, a woman was found bleeding profusely. The police were called, and within a short time the 40-year-old German-passport-holding Turkish husband of a mother of three was arrested. He had attacked the 34-year-old woman with his knife so severely that she bled out on-site. According to the police report the investigator assume that it was a “domestic violence” case, which is what honor murders are basically called these days in fantasy land.

When you say "classy" I presume you mean "correct".

Another ad hominem attack... mod standards anyone ???

BTW: Found the original article in German but for some reason couldn't find a good English translation other than there.

From Parnell's quote...
Quote:

Just that alone utterly disgusts me. Someone murdering their estranged spouse/partner, is horrifically common across all cultures. To use domestic violence and spousal murder to push a bigoted political agenda is nothing short of despicable. With so many legitimate news sources covering the story, I find it abhorrent that any member of this forum resorts to posting a link to it from such a source.

Nothing about "halal-butchered" in this one though People tend to bleed out when stabbed.
Sometimes I too wonder what exactly drives you.
