Dear pike, let's translate it first into English :
(correct me if I make any mistakes)

[ Herr Heribert Rech hat in der ersten Woche '06 die ungeteilte Aufmerksamkeit der türkischen Armee der Grauen Panther und einer
weiteren breiten Oeffentlichkeit der klassischen modernen Türkei auf sich gezogen.
Dies durch einen Einbürgerungsfragebogen, welcher auf einige Europäer wie ein Radikalenerlass aus der Inquisitionszeit
der Jesuiten wirkt. In seiner Funktion als Innenminister scheint Herr Heribert Rech damit einen der in der europäischen Geschichte
besonders in Frankreich sehr blutigen Religionskriege losgetreten zu haben.]

" In the first week of the year 2006 Mr Heribert Rech drew the undivided attention of the Turkish army of the Grey Panther and a further broader public of the classical modern Turkey to his person .
It happened thanks to a naturalization questionaire which looks in the eyes of some Europeans like an extremist's edict from the inquisition time of Jesuits. In his quality as the minister of the Interior Mr Heribert Rech seems thereby to have trodden upon (unleashed ?) one of very bloody , as far as European history is concerned , especially in France , wars of religion".

First , let me thanks wholeheartedly for not submitting this post in another classical modern language of Germany, namely Turkish!

Could you clarify to us this 'Turkish army of the Grey Panthers' ( it seems that the classical modern Turkish Grey Wolves in a miraculous way have given birth to Grey Panthers now ) ? And what do you mean by "classical modern Turkey" ? ...Isn't it some hybrid of classical corrupt Muslim Othoman despotism in Kemalist clothes of virulent militarism blackmailing the Cypriote Greeks, Greece , Armenia, Syria and oppressing the Kurds?...

Who are those 'some Europeans' who are so versed in the European History of the XVI century ? Aren't they by chance the same more or less understandably German-speaking Turks and their German janissaries trained in both German and Anatolian mosques to accuse the Armenians of having perpetrated the famous genocide against the Turks between 1915-1922 and denying the Germans and all other infidels any right of self-defence against this creeping enslavement by Islam ?
