ok, lets ask the kurds about this. I figure the kurds would love to use their language on a daily basis especially in the public schools. Gordon being a stooge or not, by Erdogans logic, turkish should be first language in german public schools and kurdish in Radio, TV or Daily journals in Turkey. Again, I think Erdogan owes at least an answer to many europeans. Regardless he is a stooge or not the man has a point.
