Erdogan nationalizes Egypt’s Rabia sign: "One nation, one flag, one state, one homeland,”


Erdogan nationalizes Egypt’s Rabia sign: "One nation, one flag, one state, one homeland,”
(TZ).

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who has made it a habit to use the Rabia salute -- used to show demonstrate solidarity with former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi -- at almost every opportunity he gets, has virtually nationalized the four-finger sign, with each finger representing one of his “new Turkey” principles: one nation; one flag; one state; and one homeland.


Even the pro-government Takvim daily acknowledged the change in Erdoğan's Rabia sign on Nov. 11 in a news piece on a photo of Erdoğan released officially after his talk with US President Barack Obama before the G-20 summit. The photo shows a sculpture of the Rabia sign.

Erdoğan challenged his enemies and sent a message to the world with the Rabia sculpture on his desk: 'One nation, one flag, one state, one homeland,” reported the pro-government daily.
Erdoğan actually hinted of the concept of his four-finger salute during a speech at a rally in Batman in May. During his address to the public, Erdoğan had said: "We say one nation, one flag, one motherland and one state. This is Rabia. No one should try to divide our country.” Hmmm......How original where did he get the idea from? Hitler: "Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer" ('One People, One Nation, One Leader').
