This is a joke (but the university and the person exist well enough.)
My dear compatriots, it was out of the question that there should exist a Sabanci University in Istanbul, a Middle East Technical University in Ankara (where 1,000 students protested against my visit on the 18th December 2012), and yet not anywhere a Recep Tayyip Erdogan University! It is now time for me to make the best use of the Al-Gaddafi International Prize for Human Rights. Despite being minded to repress any opposition, across the whole territory, I can not, however, allow a single drop of blood to be spilt on my own university, founded in 2006 in Rize, the town of my birth, in north-east Turkey, next to the Black Sea, in West Armenia. The following university programme will ignite, I hope, the sympathy of those who defend foreign human and intellectual rights, whose words I appreciate because their compliments do not represent a too heavy load for the Turkish economy, compared to the military material that we buy from them to repress our population.
Programme of The Grand-Millstone Vizir Recep Tayyip Erdogan University
