Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, on Friday, continued his hate-filled campaign against Europeans as he urged Turks living in Europe to have larger families so that they can claim the continent for Muslims in the future.
Erdoğan made the controversial comment during an hour-long address in front of a large crowd of red and crescent flag-waving supporters in the Central Anatolian city of Eskişehir.
Erdoğan stepped up his fiery rhetoric against the EU after several Western European countries banned Turkish political rallies and the decision by the EU Court of Justice earlier this week to prohibit the wearing of Islamic headscarf in the workplace.
The Gateway Pundit reports:
“I am calling out to my citizens, my brothers and sisters in Europe,” Erdoğan implored, “Have not just three but five children.”
The bellicose words come only a day after Erdoğan alluded to a European crusade against Islam, and a warning from his foreign minister, Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu, on the outbreak of religious wars in the fracturing EU – dramatic talk which plays well with the Turkish media.
The Turkish president is campaigning for a referendum that would effectively give him new powers, and addressing the five million Turks living in Europe who will be eligible to vote in the April 16th constitutional referendum.
