“Europe is an increasingly dangerous place for Muslims,” Fahrettin Altun, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s communications director said in a series of tweets on Sunday.
“The dog whistle politics of offensive caricatures, accusations of separatism against Muslims, and mosque raids isn’t about freedom of expression. It’s about intimidating and reminding Muslims that they are welcome to keep the European economy going, but they will never belong,” he said.
“Some European leaders today do not just target Muslims in their midst. They attack our sacred values, our scripture, our prophet and our political leaders — our way of life,” Altun added.
