Turkish president Erdoğan reveals his Hitler-like leadership goals

Igal HechtIsrael Correspondent

During a press conference, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan cited Germany under Hitler as an example in history where a Presidential system had “function”. 

His comments have been met with criticism and warnings from those who say Erdogan’s reference to Hitler shows what kind of regime he is planning for Turkey, a NATO member and as yet close western ally.

turkey a close ally, not a chance, putin was correct, the turk gov is corrupt and likely was buying oil from isis, They should not be in nato as they are not trustworthy.

Thomas Cordery – I think it was a Freudian slip!

Now I see why Erdogan and Putin are fighting. They are two peas in a pod, but I’m putting my money on Putin.

Then Erdogan’s government released a statement saying it was unacceptable to suggest his comment was referring to Hitler as a positive example. Yet that’s exactly what he was doing when he offered Germany under Hitler as an example of the government structure he has in mind.

Even after saying there are many examples around the world and throughout history (and there are, some of which are not even horrible), Hitler was what sprung to mind. Sure seems like he let the curtain slip a bit.

The Turkish Turncoat seems to fit this lizard! Turkey needs to be punted from NATO immediately.

This should get him booted out of NATO, i actually hope Putin acts on this clown.
commented 2016-01-04 13:04:12 -0500
This man is as much of a threat as Adolph Hitler was – take him out of NATO to start! Do not let this get rolling and out of hand!

This Guy has a coat of many colors. He is an unknown quantity and should not be trusted.

Ever since I discovered Turkey has been buying and re-selling oil from isis – something the Americans and Brits have confirmed – along with his stance on islam.

I want him and his country OUT OF NATO!!!!

Bet you that witch merkel gets him into the EU – which will only increase the Eurabia troubles.

This simply confirms my usual comment – islam = evil.
