A shining effigy of controversial Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has suddenly appeared in southwestern Germanyto the surprise and chagrin of locals.
The 13-foot statue, painted gold, depicts Erdogan with his hand, outstretched and pointing at the horizon. Erdogan is a divisive figure in Germanywhich has a diaspora of around 3 million people of Turkish nationality or descentand when residents of Wiesbaden, 20 miles west of Frankfurt, woke up to a monument honoring the man, they had questions for city officials.
"We have received calls from a string of irritated citizensit is not clear to people that it is part of the Biennale," a spokesperson for the city said of the statue, according to German news agency DPA, referring to the ongoing art festival in town.
The golden Erdogan figure is an installation that is part of the festival, known as the Wiesbaden Biennale for Contemporary Art, though city officials also had no specific knowledge that the statue would pop up in town. The festivals theme this year is "bad news" and besides having already inflamed public opinion in Germany with strong remarks and accusations, Erdogan is set to make headlines again when he visits Berlin next month.

Now, someone erected a 4 meter tall gold statue of him giving the 1 finger Islamist signal.
Will Europe wake in time?
How long will the Dictator in Turkey last?
So many important questions. I'm very surprised to see this from Newsweek.
Preserving and maintaining German Sovereignty, Culture and Identity is not a left or right issue, it is a GERMAN issue.
Erdogan is more powerful than Merkel in Germany.
Sad state of affairs.
He is not more powerful than the US, Israel or Russia.
And he is on the wrong team. In the end, he will lose.
Yes, and Germany under Merkel might actually bring charges. Headshake.
If you think thats bad, wait til the statue animates and starts moving and talking
I hope they do. Islamist are pure poison.
Its nothing a thermite grenade cant solve.
A statue to a man acting like he wants to be an Islamic Caliphate?
Ezekiel 38 checklist:
Persia = Iran. Check.
House of Togarmah = Turkey. Check.
Put / Phut = Libya. Check.
Some think Gomer is Germany. Hmmmm.
Of course, not everyone agrees with this list. So, YMMV.
Personally I agree with Dr. Ed Hindson. I’ve met Ed a couple of times. Excellent resource, IMHO.
I’m trying to find his Gog-Magog broadcast on YouTube. It used to be there.
Yes, there are a lot of things that continue to align.
It is good to observe. But we will not understand until it is time.
[Erdogan is more powerful than Merkel in Germany.]
You know, these days, I believe you just may be correct.
Now that you mention that, I remember the huge etched glass monument to Che that was cut down with a machine gun, like you took a knife and sliced the tempered glass.
Is that anything like an amputee centipede?
Stuff like that does happen in Germany.
You don't want to see what they did with Trump.
I believe (the first) Gog and Magog is a separate battle from Armageddon.
When it occurs in relation to the last 7 years I don’t think we can actually prove. I’ve read the multiple theories.
Obviously some thought it takes place immediately after the paralambano event. I guess the world is gonna find out.
