German opposition politician slammed Turkish community as “camel herders” and reminded them of committing the Armenian Genocide, dpa reported.
Andre Poggenburg, a member of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party said the Turks should not speak about history and homeland.
“These caraway traders have the genocide of 1.5 million Armenians weighing them down ... and they want to tell us something about history and homeland? They‘re nuts. These camel herders should set off to where they belong,” he said.
His criticism came in response to the statements of Turkish community, which is opposing the concept of a new Home Ministry as proposed in the new German government coalition agreement.
He also lashed out at calls by the country‘s Turkish community for dual citizenship.
