The tour de force of his writings was the claim that Turkish women farmworkers urinating & defecating in strawberry fields they worked had caused the 2011 E. coli outbreak in Germany. He described it as a “fecal jihad” waged by Muslims against Europeans.
Is that okay with you to associate with Assadists who promote such views? How is it possible that you trust their “embedded” views on Syria? Are there no principles left in your politics?
