It is impossible for one to be internationalist without being a nationalist. Internationalism is possible only when nationalism becomes a fact, i.e. when peoples belonging to different countries have organized themselves and are able to act as one man. It is not nationalism that is evil, it is the narrowness, selfishness, exclusiveness which is the bane of modern nations which is evil. Each wants to profit at the expense of, and rise on the ruin of, the other.

Indian nationalism has struck a different path. It wants to organize itself or to find full self-expression for the benefit and service of humanity at large … God having cast my lot in the midst of the people of India, I should be untrue to my Maker if I failed to serve them. If I do not know how to serve them I shall never know how to serve humanity. And I cannot possibly go wrong so long as I do not harm other nations in the act of serving my country.

Dictator Erdogan demanded this German Video be Taken Down

German ambassador was summoned by Erdogan, lately. Turkey’s dictator wanted the German government to take down a video showing his excellency in reestablishing his Ottoman Empire through friendship with Daesh Islamic State, suppression of free speech and terrorizing Kurdish communities.

Instead of complying, the German authors added some English and Turkish subtitles in it.

This recent attack on the “Big Boss from Bosporus” will surely fuel more refugee flooding into Europe from Turkey.

Erdogan and others like him are very egoistically sensitive people. And creative pieces such as the video above is one way of bringing down an oppressive regime through the inducement of a stroke, or a heart attack.

English subtitles available. For turkish subtitles this way please: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=349VW.... Danke für eure Likes und Kommentare, wir freuen uns über jeden neuen Abonnenten. Ja. Auch über Sie, Herr Erdogan.

In Sachen Pressefreiheit und Menschenrechte tritt der türkische Präsident ziemlich verhaltenskreativ auf. Also diplomatisch ausgedrückt. Das ist bei uns anders. Unser Song für Istanbul.
