Beats me why the Germans put up with this, why they even allow him back into the country. Smells like deep rooted dhimmitude:
Turks in Germany: The Guests Take Over the House
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was in Germany on November 1 and 2 to mark the 50th anniversary of a German-Turkish agreement on guest workers.
Erdogan turned what was supposed to be a friendly photo opportunity into a platform from which toÂ launch a fresh tiradeÂ against Berlin for a long list of perceived slights and shortcomings in its treatment of the estimated 3.5 million Turkish immigrants who now live in Germany.
Erdogan said Germany’s insistence that immigrants who want to live in Germany must learn the German language is “against human rights.” He also demanded that Berlin grant German citizenship to Turkish immigrants regardless of the efforts they make to integrate into German society.
For good measure, Erdogan accused Germany of being “an accessory” to the terror campaign launched by the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Turkey. He also blamed Germany for derailing Turkey’s decades-long bid to join the European Union.
Adding to the controversy, a group of German scientists, politicians and human rights activists greeted Erdogan’s visit to Germany byÂ filing a war crimes complaint against the Turkish prime ministerÂ and nine other senior Turkish political and military officials.
Â Erdogan reinstates the jiziya:
“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” — Qur’an 9:29
Under heavy pressure from the European powers, the Ottoman Empire abolished the payment of the jizya, which is the cornerstone of the system of dhimmitude, in the 1850s. But even the secular Turkish state found a way to reestablish it under another name. As the Islamization of Turkey continues to advance, eventually this pretense will no longer be needed.

Meanwhile, how many of the learned analysts who invoke Turkey as a prime example of Islamic moderation (even though Kemalist Turkey was established by means of active and conscious restriction of political Islam) know that in secular Turkey non-Muslims pay a special tax from which Muslims are exempt, just as is directed in the Qur’an?
“Non-Muslim minorities protest wealth tax, expect apology,” by Ilyas KoÃ§ forÂ Today’s Zaman, November 10 (thanks to JW):
Victims of the discriminatory wealth tax, who are all non-Muslim minorities, demand an apology from the state 69 years after legislation was passed by Parliament on Nov. 11, 1942, requiring non-Muslims to pay a much higher rate of tax to the state.
Many well-known families in Turkey are among the victims. One such victim is the prominent Turkish Jewish businessman Hayim Alaton, the father of Alarko Holding’s executive board chairman Ä°shak Alaton. Hayim Alaton was sent to AÅŸkale in the province of Erzurum to perform manual labor because he had failed to pay two separate taxes imposed on him.
Within the scope of wealth tax payment requirements, 1,229 non-Muslims were sent to AÅŸkale via the HaydarpaÅŸa railroad station in Ä°stanbul to perform the jobs assigned to them.
Ä°shak Alaton and a group of his friends have stated that they will visit the HaydarpaÅŸa railroad station on Nov. 11 in order to keep the memories of this tragic incident alive. He will be accompanied by lawyer Cem Murat SofuoÄŸlu, Professor Serap YazÄ±cÄ±, Professor Ergun Ã–zbudun and others.
The historic church where the Council of Nicea was held, which has been a museum for nearly a century, has been converted to a mosque.
The Aghia Sophia in Nicea (not to be confused with the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople) was taken over by Muslims in the 14th century. But in 1920 the new secular government of Turkey made the building a museum. Now the government’s Directorate for Religious Affairs has returned the building to use as a mosque, overriding objections from Christians who pointed to its important religious and historic heritage.
