Erdohan is currently the best Islamic leader on the world in Germany Erdogan comes up for his people who are killed by the secret service from Germany and also in the Netherlands he fights Youthcare (case Yunus).

And youthcare in the Netherlands are run by a bunch of pedofiles search for investigatedemmink

And those people from the Bilderberg who are organizing this protest they laugh at those stupid people who are protesting.

Erdogan is the only leader in Turkish history selected 3 times by people with 51% of the votes.
