Turkish nationalist insults Mauthausen
An Austrian member of a pro-ISIS Turkish Muslim nationalist organisation has been photographed making an Islamic salute on a concentration camp monument. Abdurrahman Alpaslan was snapped standing on a monument to those who died at the Mauthausen concentration camp making the two-fingered salute, sometimes referred to as the Wolf Salute.
It is used by members of the Nationalist Movement Party of Turkey (MHP) in which the little finger symbolizes Turkey, while the index finger is Islam and the space between is the world, implying that Turkish Islamists will one day control the world.
Mauthausen was liberated from the Nazis on 5 May 1945, which is marked by a granite block placed at the site. The monument has special significance to the survivors as well as the relatives of those who died, symbolising the end to their torment.
