Reisetipps der deutschen Regierung für Türkeiurlauber: „Bloß den Mund halten“

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has set a marvelous precedent in showing the entire world how a country should best care about the safety of its citizens traveling to … well, ‚different‘ foreign lands. In a very smart move, the German Foreign Ministry added a new piece of travel advice to the ‚tips page‘ on how German tourists should behave while on a visit to Turkey: ‚It is strongly advised not to make public political statements against the Turkish state and not to express sympathy for terrorist organizations.‘

Ironically, the advice came more or less on the same day a German reporter was deported from Turkey on the grounds that he was previously banned from entering the country. The German government should perhaps upgrade its travel tips on Turkey: ‚‘Do not make public political statements against the Turkish state. If you are a journalist, do not go to Turkey.‘“ (Der türkische Journalist Burak Bekdil auf der Website der englisch-sprachigen türkischen Tageszeitung Hürriyet Daily News: „Wir lieben die Türkei! Erdoğan ist der beste!“)
