This is a refreshing change from the usual tales of Western dhimmitude and appeasement. In a response to recent inflammatory remarks by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the German Teachers’ Association spoke out with notable political incorrectness.
JLH, who translated the article below, has this to say:
Erdogan is again pushing the envelope. If he keeps revealing the grand strategy and simultaneously irritating segments of German society, he may turn out to be the best weapon the anti-jihadists have.
From last Friday’s Hanover Zeitung, as reported in Europe News:
German Teachers’ Association Attacks Turkish Premier Erdogan
The president of the Teachers’ Association, Josef Kraus, has expressed strong disapproval of Turkish Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s push for Turkish high schools in Germany. “That is unacceptable and anti-integration, to the disadvantage of young Turks living here,” said Kraus to the Rheinische Post.

The head of the Teachers’ Association accused Erdogan of Islamic expansionism and called on Chancellor Angela Merkel, during her visit to Ankara in the coming week, to decisively reject Turkish interference in German affairs.
The Teachers’ Association, he said, is not against requiring Turkish as a second or third language, to strengthen the language capabilities of young Turks. But it is clear that, with all due deference to ethnic origin, Germany must require not only integration, but assimilation, of all Turks living here.
