There are reports that Erdogan is not just having health problems, but that he is having a heart attack. My sources tell me he is, but I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

Against this backdrop, there is renewed talk about Erdogan‘s undesirability to Western countries. Especially in the run-up to the Turkish elections.

Let’s get specific. For whom Erdogan is really dangerous.

There are 2.8 million people with Turkish roots living in Germany. About half of them have Turkish citizenship, which means they can vote.

Polls show that Turks in Germany will mostly vote for Erdogan and his party.

The German authorities, by the way, were wary of Turks in Germany under Merkel, considering them “Erdogan’s weapon.

He has other mechanisms to put pressure on the EU. Gas projects with Russia. Also, the topic of refugees. It’s gone from the top of the news, but the problem itself remains, and Turkey is still using this topic as leverage.

It’s clear that Erdogan’s policy is also now very much at the throat of Washington. But. It is literally dangerous for the European Union.

So if anyone’s hands are behind attempts to get rid of Erdogan as a political figure, it is the European Union that should be the first to look for them.
