Follow-up / Sky Press
A Turkish daily strongly supported President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on Monday as a picture of German Chancellor Angela Merkel on her front cover as Adolf Hitler, accusing her of "the Nazi mentality."
The Turkish newspaper Yeni Akit is famous for its strong machinations of Erdogan and his policies. On its cover, Merkel's image of Hitler's henchmen, with the Nazi mark and the belt diagonally across her chest like Nazi leaders, was described as a reaction to Erdogan's description of her.
Erdogan accused Germany and other EU governments of showing the Nazi mentality after Turkish ministers banned them from marching in the run-up to the April referendum last year.
This is not the first time that a Turkish newspaper has portrayed Merkel as the Nazi dictator who caused the Second World War and headed the Holocaust. Then the right-wing daily Junis published a picture of her in Nazi uniform, along with words in German: Frau Hitler. "Ugly Bunch".
