German Primary Schoolchildren Forced To Learn Turkish

There is a shocking report in DiePresse today about a primary school in Hamburg where the children are taught both German and Turkish. Only about half of the children are of Turkish background, so there are traditional German children having their education compromised by being forced to learn an alien tongue. A respect for Turkish culture (sic) is also inculcated into them. A map of Turkey hangs on the wall alongside a picture of the brutal dictator and mass murderer Mustafa Kemal Ataturk! A teacher boasts that this indoctrination promotes "cultural openness" in the pupils.

DiePresse also reports that the Austrian government intends to introduce Turkish tuition in secondary schools soon. Apparently plans are already being made for this to begin within the next few years, but the political parties have made no public announcement about it for fear of a hostile public reaction.

  1. I deeply condemn you to call Mustafa Kemal Ataturk "brutal dictator and mass murderer". For your information, Ataturk was the founder of Repulic of Turkey and the precursor of transfromation process of former Ottoman Empire into a modern, westernized and secular nation-state. Without him, you may be facing with a Turkey worst than Iran.

    This is just another evidence that most of your claims are shallow and pathetic!

    DO NOT PREACH US ABOUT LACK OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN TURKEY WITHOUT FULLY UNDERSTANDING ITS MEANING!

    Especially when you cannot stand any opposite comments and CONSISTENTLY DELETE THOSE OPPOSITE COMMENTS!!!

    SHAME ON YOU!

  2. Ataturk was a vile butcher. That shouldn't be forgotten. This is not to say he didn't have some positive qualities. I particularly like this quote of his:

    "Islam, this absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, is a rotting corpse which poisons our lives ..."

    It is not true to say I delete hostile comments. I have never deleted any comments from this blog other than spam. You are welcome to express adverse opinions.
