"The Hamburg district court is reviewing the civil case concerning a poem by comedian Jan Böhmermann which allegedly shamed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Erdogan aims to have the entire poem banned."
Court case: Will Erdogan obtain a ban on Böhmermann's satirical poem? | Culture | DW.COM | 02.11.2016
Erdogan has imprisoned thousands of military, police, reporters, and anyone he dislikes. As he consolidates a dictatorial style at home, he is now going after people in other countries. Let us hope he will not get his way with European Union states.

The fact that a German civil court is even processing this, shows that Islam rules from outside their borders.

I don't like Erdogan, but that poem could be pretty offensive.

Boris Johnson also wrote one:
Boris Johnson wins 'most offensive Erdoğan poem' competition
It's pretty ridiculous that he is now Foreign Secretary, he is quite undiplomatic.

I think it would help more to stick to facts when talking politics.

My point is that these poems can get close to hate speech against Muslims at times.
