A new party will be up for elections in the German national elections on September 24, with the promising name ADD, “Allianz Deutscher Demokraten” (“Alliance of German Democrats”).
A Turkish gentleman named Ramzi Aru formed the AD Democrats out of protest in 2016, when the German Bundestag recognized the mass killings of the Armenians by the Turks as a genocide. According to Mr. Aru, this puts all German parties out of the question for Turkish voters.
Intrigued by the ADD poster for the German Bundestag election, which curiously appears to show the counterfeit of Mr. Erdogan, we went to their website to read their mission statement:
“The AD Democrats champion a communal right to vote for all foreign nationals and people without nationality who are of the necessary voting age, and who have been legally residing in Germany for a period no longer than a communal legislative period; independent of their nationality.
Whoever feels that their opinion matters, is already integrated. The communal right to vote must be granted to all people, to enable them to participate in the active forming of their direct environment.
Excluding people from the right to vote is a discrimination of them when exercising their political rights. Due to the demographic development, a growth of the population that is politically not represented is to be expected in the next years. Thus, in communities with a high proportion of foreigners, democracy-less areas will form. Foreigner Advisory Boards and Migrant Gremiums alone cannot replace the active democratic process. The AD Democrats champion that every foreigner receives the full right to vote on communal and national level after ten years of residence.
The AD Democrats also champion to grant families more political weight by giving the parents the right to vote for their underage children. This increased weight will mean that families will move into the center of the political processes, and family policies will automatically become more sustainable. Only who has a vote can be sure to be acknowledged politically; especially children.”
In what appears to be a Turkish jingoistic news portal, we found a report about the ADD’s party convention in Duisburg in November 2016.
Regular readers will recognize two familiar faces at the event: One of them is the German ‘journalist’, former Marxist, and convert to Islam Martin Lejeune (photo right). We covered his unfortunate little mishap at the Berlin Marathon, where he was shilling for Erdogan: Taking One For Team Erdogan (Gates of Vienna, April 8, 2017).
The gentleman on the left, speaking to Mr. Lejeune, is Mr. Ramazan Akbas, vice chair of the ADD. He is new to us, but from another news portal, Turkishnews, we larn that he has lodged a complaint against the aforementioned Armenia resolution of the German Bundestag, arguing that the resolution violates his human rights. His complaint was turned down, so now he is suing at the European Court of Human Rights.
The other familiar face is, we learn, “the popular blogger from the Turkish immigrant community, Bilgili Üretmen”, here seen holding his membership card. We did not know that he was popular or a blogger, we only knew him from what appeared to be a nervous breakdown and a screaming fit directed at the German concert organizer Marek Lieberberg, when Lieberberg’s “Rock am Ring” event was cancelled due to a terror risk, and Lieberberg suggested that terror might have something to do with Islam (full story: Ramadan am Ring, Part 2, Gates of Vienna, June 11, 2017. Turn the volume down should you watch the video).
All in all, we think that with such personnel, and such programme, this newly-founded party is a welcome contribution to the diversity of the German political landscape. What could possibly go wrong?
(Thank you Gate of Vienna’s Baron Bodissey for suggesting the title of this article – and apologies for stealing it!)
The Turks wil respond. Wil it be with another flood of Muslim migrants into Europe? How will European states and the rapidly failing EU deal with it?
And some videos:

More to come. Updates will be posted here but likely also in new posts. Intuitively, this feels like a story that has just begin in that sort of, Arch Duke Ferdinand sort of way.

Eric Hoffer, LA Times, May 26, 1968:
The Jews are a peculiar people: things permitted to other nations are forbidden to the Jews.
Other nations drive out thousands, even millions of people, and there is no refugee problem. Russia did it, Poland and Czechoslovakia did it. Turkey threw out a million Greeks and Algeria a million Frenchman. Indonesia threw out heaven knows how many Chinese and no one says a word about refugees. But in the case of Israel displaced Arabs have become eternal refugees. Everyone insists that Israel must take back every single Arab.

PRESS RELEASE: http://www.ayfcanada.org/press-releas…
A group of Turkish Canadians celebrate the loss of 1.5 million Armenian lives on Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day in Ottawa, Canada.
According to some viewers, the crowd is singing a modified version of the song Yar Saclarin Lule Lule”. Roughly translated they are saying: “my curly haired love my beloved is like a white rose..” They modified it as: “my curly haired love to all Armenians say goodbye”
Here are a few choice excerpts from a DoE paper “Teaching Emotive and Controversial History 3-19” https://www.education.gov.uk/publications/eOrderingDownload/RW100.pdf
“For example, a history department in a northern city recently avoided selecting the Holocaust as a topic for GCSE coursework for fear of confronting anti-Semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils.”
“In another history department, the Holocaust was taught despite anti-Semitic sentiment among some pupils, but the same department deliberately avoided teaching the Crusades at Key Stage 3 because their balanced treatment of the topic would have directly challenged what was taught in some local mosques.”
Why? What’s so offensive about the holocaust to Muslims?
The report mentions that an educator from northern England stated that there “was a fear of confronting anti-Semitic sentiment and Holocaust denial among some Muslim pupils.”
They CANNOT allow any other group, especially Jews, to in any way be seen as the victims in any incident, I suppose that’s why I’ve NEVER EVER ONCE EVER heard an Muslim admit that Jews were persecuted, humiliated and subjected to horrific treatment under Islamic rule despite such treatment having been documented in detail.
I believe that that is the entire problem. Muslims are oblivious to the 1400 years or mayhem and destruction that they have caused in their quest for conquest in the name of Allah. Until they lift this veil from the narrative that they are being taught no substantive change towards peace will be made in the 20 odd conflict areas around the world that involve Muslims

President of World Yezidi Union, Aziz Tamoyan, has said that 500,000 Yezidis, as well as 1.5 million Armenians, were massacred by the Turks during 1915-1923.
Although the Armenian genocide is now widely recognized, outside of Turkey, the genocide of the Yezidis (sun worshippers) has long been ignored.
“We condemn the Turkish denial policy. It is a rough crime,” Tamoyan told Armenpress. “Turkey must understand, that the whole world is with Armenia. They ought to keep their bloody hands far away from the nations. We have been standing next to Armenia and… continue reading.

Down a glum, dark back alley in Istanbul, I found a sinister sight. In a workshop two stern and bearded men were bent over sheets and patches of very black cloth, their sewing-machines whirring urgently.
I was plainly unwelcome and they objected to the very idea of being photographed. I quickly saw why. They were making dark robes and masks for women to wear. They looked to me as if they longed for the day when every woman in sight was clad in their workmanship.
They knew the women would wear them, because one day, not far off, they would have to. These robes would be, literally, a ‘must-have’ for the women of Turkey.
Those who think of Turkey as a relaxed holiday destination, or as a Westernised Nato member more or less ‘on our side’ need to revise their view.
And that very much includes our Prime Minister, David Cameron, who last week joined in the fashionable chorus urging Turkish membership of the European Union. Mr Cameron plainly hasn’t been properly briefed.
Leave aside the fact that such a step would allow millions of Turks to live and work in Britain, and give us – as EU members – a common border with Syria and Iraq. Mr Cameron really ought to realise that the new Islamist Turkey he so ignorantly praises is much more interested in making friends with Iran than it is in joining the EU. And it is becoming less free and less democratic by the day.
I would say there is a strong chance that we will soon lose Turkey to the Islamic world, much as we lost Iran to the ayatollahs 30 years ago. And there is not much we can do about it – least of all the daft scheme to include this nation in the EU. Continue Reading →
Turkey’s prime minister has threatened to deport 100,000 Armenian migrants, amid renewed tensions over Turkish mass killings of Armenians in World War I.
Recent resolutions in the US and Sweden have called the killings “genocide”.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan told the BBC that of 170,000 Armenians living in Turkey “70,000 are Turkish citizens”.
“We are turning a blind eye to the remaining 100,000… Tomorrow, I may tell these 100,000 to go back to their country, if it becomes necessary.”
Thousands of Armenians, many of them women, work illegally in Turkey. Most do low-skilled jobs such as cleaning.
Mr Erdogan was speaking in an interview with the BBC’s Turkish Service, in which he was asked about the recent votes by lawmakers in the US and Sweden.
The resolutions, recognising the mass killings of Armenians by Ottoman Turks as “genocide”, were passed narrowly, and in both cases Turkey reacted angrily.
MASS KILLINGS OF ARMENIANS
Hundreds of thousands of ethnic Armenians killed by Ottoman Turks in 1915-6
Many historians and the Armenian people believe the killings amount to genocide
Turks and some historians deny they were orchestrated
More than 20 countries regard the massacres as genocide
Mr Erdogan said the resolutions “harm the Armenian people as well… and things become deadlocked”.
Armenian Prime Minister Tigran Sarkisian was quoted as telling parliament on Wednesday that Mr Erdogan’s comments only reminded Armenians of the mass killings.
“These kinds of political statements do not help to improve relations between our two states,” he said.
“When the Turkish prime minister allows himself to make such statements it immediately for us brings up memories of the events of 1915.”
Diplomatic moves to normalise relations between Turkey and Armenia have faltered recently.
Hundreds of thousands of Armenians died in 1915, when they were deported en masse from eastern Anatolia by the Ottoman Empire. They were killed by troops or died from starvation and disease.
Armenia says up to 1.5 million Armenians were killed, but Turkey says the figure is no more than one-third of that and that many Turks died as well.
Turkey accepts that atrocities were committed but argues they were part of the war and that there was no systematic attempt to destroy the Christian Armenian people.
Armenia wants Turkey to recognise the killings as an act of genocide, but successive Turkish governments have refused to do so.
Armenians have campaigned for the killings to be recognised internationally as genocide – and more than 20 countries have done so.
The Muslim Turks committed acts of genocide against the Armenian people between 1915-1917. The US program 60 Minutes does an excellent job in reporting on it. Watch it all. KGS
NOTE: Hitler knew Marxist theory, that the use of genocide was a means to erase all who stood in the way of a grand socialist state. The Armenian genocide by the Turks offered Hitler an example of how he could get away with it.
