In his statement Recep Tayyip Erdogan In front of the German Chancellor Olaf Sulzthat turkey Not historically beholden to Israel Because it does not bear the burden of the Holocaust, and therefore can speak freely, the vast majority of its pro-government press focuses on… turkey The day after the Turkish President’s visit to Berlin.
The pro-government newspapers Sabah, Turkiye, Hurriyet, and Aksam feature Erdogan’s references to the Holocaust in front-page headlines such as “We have no Holocaust in our past,” “Those who owe Israel cannot speak freely,” and “If we remain silent we will not be able to apologize before history.” In fact, they surround their posts with aggressive reports that he made the statement “looking into Soltz’s eyes.”
The pro-government Yeni Şafak newspaper chose to feature as a central issue videos and announcements issued by the Israeli army about military operations in Gaza under the distinctive headline “Goebbels’ Descendants,” while Milliyet newspaper made more conservative reference to the Holocaust-related statement. But he downplays its importance by making a headline: “Erdogan’s harsh message to the West from Berlin: Why don’t you see Gaza?”
The two main opposition newspapers close to the Republican People’s Party, Cumhuriyet and Sozcu, did not mention Erdogan’s visit to Germany on their front pages.
