  1. May Allah protect Turkey الله يحميك يا أردوغان شوكة في حلق اليهود والعرب المتصهينين الدب الداشر والإماراتي الخاين

  2. If anyone is a dictator the leader of the so called free world should be given that title .coz while Erdogan takes in upto 4million your disgusting"democracy" abducts children and puts them in Concentration camps .and ya'll still have the nerve to call it tender age shelters

  3. Stupid western teens cry in the comments although none of them has any idea about Turkey and the new system. They learn everything from Bbc which is a propaganda machine of UK intelligence.

  4. Greetings to all muslim brothers from Azerbaijan! All muslims should protect Erdogan. Long live Erdogan! Long live Turkey! There are sionists inside of Turkey! Dont let to betrayers to win!

  5. This guy is bad news, I'm sure many Turks were against him being in power and he probably manipulated votes, he has big powers behind him, ones who want to use Turkey for their illegal wars. This guys funding ISIS, there's evidence, also google Serena Shim, another journalist killed in Turkey. His dictatorship really reflects Hitler and needs to stop.

  6. Neden Türk düşmanları teröristler kisacasi Türkleri sevmeyen kişilerin çoğu Hayır diyor diğerkendi fikriyle Hayır verenlere birsey demiyorum ama gerçekten bu işte birseyler var

  7. Turkey has never recognized the Genocide they carried out against Kurds, Greeks, and Armenians. When they hear the word 'Genocide' they will immediately back off and don't even want to take to discuss the topic, All Turks do is to come up with lies and blame those who criticize them. Turks want forcibly convert people to Islam. If you are a Christian belief in Christianity, all the Turk will do is to forbid your religion. Turks are bad to Christians, they want to immediate change the Christian's beliefs.

    Kurds respect every religion. Kurds have in ancient time been gentle to religion, and has NEVER EVER, force divided or forcibly change people's beliefs in the case of religion. Even today, Kurdistan and its fighters have secured and rescued Christians cities so families can return to their home.

    Turks are good at making propagandas I'll tell you, and they will bark till the mind of you change so they can take advantage of you. I'm talking about to get "brainwashed" just the method the Islamic state are using to manipulate people to their religion, Islam.

    Erdogan has even threatened Europe that "the people in Europe will not walk safely in the streets" meaning that he will send illegal immigrants, which he did, to the countries in Europe, just because Europe did not get along with Turkey. WHAT IS THIS??? Is this how a president should act and speak???

    However, there is not only the Kurds who are against the dictated Turkey that is controlled by the puppet Erdogan, there are so many countries throughout the world that are against Turkey because of their undemocratic role, Especially the Kurdish, Greek, and Armenians people. You can probably now the answer, the answer is the Genocide and oppression carried out against Kurds, Greeks, and Armenians, and Turkey is still in denial.

  8. Sometimes you need to shut your ears from Western opinion just like they ignore the rest of the world opinion. Turkish people know better their country than foreigners who only sit and watch. Every country has its own culture, ideology, history, view, etc… I'm not Turkish, and there were many times western media portrayed my country negatively because we do our own way. Like really, they just don't understand. They only judge from their own perspective and background. I don't trust society who completely clueless about islam, the second largest religion been around more than 1400 years, until 2001 happened. Sooo open minded

  9. Erdogan likes the Greek islands for tourism. Αφήστε τον μωρέ τον δόλιο κι αυτόν, του αρέσει η Ελλάδα. Μήπως κι εμάς δεν μας αρέσει η Τουρκία; Tourism sikis baksis tamam. Ε μα, μόνο ο Καραμανλής τον ήξερε τον Ερντογάν, βάλατε τον Καμμένο εκεί φωνάζει. Που τον συμπαθώ κι αυτόν, αλλά θέλει πιο διπλωματία. Ο Ερντογάν είναι ανατολίτης θα φωνάξει λίγο, εντάξει λες κι εμείς δεν είμαστε ίδιοι. Έλληνες, Τούρκοι, Ιταλοί, Ισπανοί, Λατίνοι τα ίδια είμαστε, είναι το μεσογειακό ταμπεραμέντο.
