ISTANBUL/ATHENS - Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan accused Greek security forces on Wednesday of behaving like Nazis for using force against migrants trying to cross the border from Turkey into the European Union.
Tens of thousands of migrants have been attempting to get into EU member Greece since Turkey said on Feb. 28 it would no longer keep them on its territory as part of a 2016 deal with Brussels in return for European aid for the refugees.
Greek security forces have used tear gas and water cannon to stop the migrants. Athens has suspended asylum applications for a month and says it has prevented more than 42,000 illegal migrants illegally entering the EU over the past two weeks.
In the Turkish parliament, Erdogan showed lawmakers of his ruling AK Party video footage of scenes at the Greek border.
There is no difference between those images on the Greek border and what the Nazis did, he said.
Opening fire on innocent people, exposing them to all kinds of inhumane treatment... (It) is barbarism in the full sense of the word, he said, repeating his call on Greece to let migrants cross its territory to reach richer western European countries.
Why are you obstructing them so much and carrying out Nazi tortures on them? he added.
Turkey has previously accused Greek security forces of shooting dead four migrants, a claim rejected by Athens as fake news. Greece says it has a duty to protect the EU border.

Hyprocrisy, Erdogan is one of thy many names.
What a d-bag. Drive your people out of your country and bag on the country you drive them into. To me that’s an act of war!
Everybody I don’t like is a NAZI. Is Erdogan taking lessons from the Democrats.
Keeping people out of your country is not like a NAZI.
The Nazis would be using MG42 machine guns and tanks......
Last I checked the Nazis didnt have hoards of displaced persons trying to immigrate into Germany.
To the contrary, they displaced people.
I am contemplating a new rule regarding politicians utilizing a Nazi metaphor. Something along the lines of when a progressive accuses someone of acting like a Nazi, it is to distract from said progressives actually Nazi-like behavior
The Nazis never faced hoards of immigrants.
They displaced people.
[The Nazis would be using MG42 machine guns and tanks......]
Put it on your List of Grievances by July 4, 2020 and post it for the world to see Erdo. We have the communications now. You lie, you die? Too harsh...OK 3 strikes and you’re out.
So Greece is invading Turkey and setting up death camps to put so-called refugees in?
Because those are Nazi tactics, not just trying to keep people rom illegally entering the country out.
They are also already in a country they have fled too. What is wrong with Muslims taking in Muslim refugees?
Yes because people were just dying to get into Nazi Germany. Everybody was clamoring to be there....and those cruel SS turned them away at the border - the monsters! This was their great crime against humanity.
Greece is weak. They have to protect themselves from the invading hordes of bearded savages.
It is time to get out of NATO.
Greece not defending their border is suicide!
In fact the Turks are doing what the Nazis did. Before the war, they dumped a bunch of their illegal immigrants on Poland.
Who said it was wrong for a Muslim country to take in Muslim refugees?
Why are Jihadfugees lining up to force their way into into a Christian country rather than be refugees safe in Islamic Turkey?
Because they heard your mom is in town again?
I think your posts are misplaced. You might want to read more carefully.
Wow, whole lotta women in that photo ...
Damn, now Big Media can’t use the “refugee families” narrative
