Far-right German politician lashes out at Turks as 'camel herders'

Dresden, Germany (dpa) - Germany‘s Turkish community got slammed as "camel herders" on Wednesday by a leading member of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party who was incensed by opposition to a proposed new ministry.

The proposed home affairs ministry came up last week amid talks around forming the next German government. The plan would see Bavaria‘s conservative premier Horst Seehofer take on the Interior Ministry portfolio, but with the agency expanded to include a special focus on home affairs.

That would likely mean more efforts to boost underdeveloped parts of the country. But several Turkish groups have opposed the concept, saying the new addition - a Heimatministerium - reminds of historical concepts of a German homeland, popular in the Nazi era, that might divide the country rather than unite it.

But the plan is popular with the AfD, which bounced into the German Bundestag in last year‘s elections and has only seen its support grow amid political bickering by the more established parties.

"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 was referring to the World War I-era deaths of hundreds of thousands of Armenians in Turkey, an event that has been recognized as a genocide by several countries, despite Turkey‘s rejection of the term.

He also lashed out at calls by the country‘s Turkish community for dual citizenship, which he said results in nothing "but homeland- and fatherland-less riff-raff."
