Read top German news agency’s report on one of the world’s hottest news stories. DW writes that Chancellor Angela Merkel has allowed German authorities to launch an investigation into satirist Jan Böhmermann. It adds that Turkish President Erdogan requested the inquiry, saying he was insulted by a Böhmermann poem.
Merkel was strong when she was slow, reflective and deliberate. Now she seems to be faster but taking decisions that most people regard as simply wrong.
Let me ask two open questions:
- What’s happened to Angela Merkel’s judgment?
- Is it time for Angela Merkel to resign or be removed?
