Rioting by Turks in Rotterdam may sway Dutch election towards Geert Wilders

Rioting by Turks in Rotterdam may sway Dutch election towards Geert Wilders

Dutch consulate in Istanbul vandalised; Rotterdam’s Mayor issues emergency orders to restore law and order

A diplomatic dispute between the Netherlands and Turkey has led to rioting by Turks in Rotterdam and a diplomatic crisis that could influence the Dutch elections that are just a few days away.

Thousands of Turkish immigrants rioted in the streets of Rotterdam early Sunday following the Dutch government’s decision to bar two Turkish ministers from entering the country.

The Mayor of Rotterdam issued emergency orders late Saturday in an attempt to contain a demonstration supporting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan outside the Turkish consulate in the city which has turned into a rallying point for Turkish immigrants.

Today morning, pro-Erdogan rioters vandalised the consulate of the Netherlands in the Turkish city of Istanbul and took down the Dutch flag replacing it with a Turkish flag, French news agency AFP reports.

With just 3 Days to go until the Dutch general election, local authorities revoked landing rights for Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, citing “risks to public order and security”.  Turkey’s Family Affairs Minister Fatma Kaya was also escorted back to Germany in the early hours of Sunday, Germany’s state broadcaster DW News confirmed.

These Turkish ministers intended to campaign for the next month’s referendum that would allow President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to alter the country’s constitution and remain in power until 2029. The Netherlands is home to some 400,000 people of Turkish origin and many of them are eligible to vote in the Turkish referendum.

Reuters News Agency reported last night’s rioting in Rotterdam:

Dutch riot police carried out charges on horseback early Sunday to break up hundreds of backers of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan demonstrating at the Turkish consulate in Rotterdam.

Expressing bitterness over her being escorted out of the Netherlands, Turkish Minister Kaya took to Twitter questioning if Europe indeed was the ‘cradle of civilisation’. Dutch politician Geert Wilders told her not to let the door hit her on the way out:

Wilders has long warned the Netherlands and the West of the dangers of uncontrolled immigration from Muslim countries. Wilders has been dragged to courts and attacked by the media for his views on unregulated mass-immigration.

With thousands of immigrant Turks rioting in the streets of Rotterdam, Netherlands second biggest city, Wilders is claiming he has been vindicated once again. It still remains to be seen if this translates into electoral gains for Wilder and his Dutch Freedom Party PVV.  According to most of the polls ahead of Wednesday’s general elections, Wilders-led PVV is neck and neck with the current ruling VVD party.

After several German cities cancelled a series of pro-Erdogan rallies due to security concerns, Erdogan warned Germany that he would “make the world rise up” if he were not allowed to speak in the country. Rioting in Rotterdam shows what Erdogan meant by those words. Immigration is the new weapon in Islamist Erdogan’s diplomatic arsenal, and the rioting Turkish migrants will be the enforcers of Ankara’s future diktats onto the Western world.

While Erdogan regime incites Turkish immigrants across Europe, European Union and Germany are seriously considering visa-free travel for all Turkish citizens. If Erdogan can put a major European city on a lockdown given the current level of migration, imagine what political leverage he will have over the capitals of Europe once 75 million Turkish citizens are granted visa-free travel across Europe.

Despite Europe’s burgeoning problems, its liberal political class doesn’t fail to come up with ingenious ways of digging the continent into an ever deeper hole.

Very disappointed Wilders isn’t doing better. I cannot understand why he dropped a little in the polls. Either the muslim issue is existential or it isn’t – and it is, and the evidence keeps piling up until it will smother them.

    I am convinced there is something in the water or some other environmental pollutant that causes so much of the population in Europe to be blind to reality.

    2 reasons;

    – wilders hasn’t built up a strong party apparatus the way Nigel Farage did with UKIP or Trump took over with the Republicans

    – I get the sense that Wilders has ended up with an appeal narrower than say Trump who also campaigned effectively on other issues not just immigration

Let us hope and pray it does sway it to Geert!

Call me an Islam-realist. All of this is the future of all Western countries where Muslims are allowed in who then proceed to set up their parallel societies with their ready-made system of law & polity (the Shariah).

Just step back and see what these Turkish Muslims (those living in Holland fired by political leaders directly from Turkey) are doing here. They are coming to a foreign (to them) country to campaign for an issue back in the “home” country, that issue being the further strengthening of a Muslim “president”-cum-dictator who in time will assert more and more authority over Western countries.

Are we nuts? No, we’re not nuts. Rather our “leaders” (& not just Merkel) are betraying us. Intentionally. Though we are nuts to continue to tolerate these “leaders.”

    Wilders advocates stripping criminals with dual citizenship of their Netherlands citizenship, the deporting them. Something like we should do with George (Jorge) Ramos.

      We can’t do that without a constitutional amendment. US citizenship, once validly obtained, can’t be taken away involuntarily.

Expressing bitterness over her being escorted out of the Netherlands, Turkish Minister Kaya took to Twitter questioning if Europe indeed was the ‘cradle of civilisation’

She needs to be reminded that Constantinople and the Byzantines was once the cradle of European civilisation until her kind invaded, ransacked and renamed it to Istanbul and Turkey.

    Yeah, if any place has a strong claim to being the true “Cradle of Civilization”, it’s that bit of land in between the Tigris and the Euphrates that is being blown to hell and back by the Jihadis right now.

    Couldn’t help but note the irony in the news these days concerning all the fighting around Mosul these days. Mosul, just a hop, skip, and a jump from ancient Nineveh, the home of the people who laid waste to the entire middle east 2700 years ago. Plus ca change…

    In Islam, there is no need for anything before The Prophet (PBUH…or else). If Islam succeeded in conquering the world… in a few hundred years everything before “Him” and everything non-Muslim after “Him” would be erased just as ISIS and others have done to “The Cradle of Civilization”….translation… “if you love your goat herd you can keep you goat herd.”

    Obviously, intimidation brings out the “Stockholm Syndrome” is politicians. At the outbreak of WWI, the Ottoman Empire was “the sick man of Europe”…. that sickness has now befallen Europe.

Isn’t it always lovely when Islam’s inherently supremacist, fascistic and belligerent tenor manifests itself?

If you have ever been to Holland then you know what nice people they are. Then throw in a cult that is primitive and barbaric and wonder what the outcome will be. The same thing is going on in Sweden. These are very nonaggressive people who have had a very homogenous society where everyone follows the rules and benefits from that. Now they face a group that has brought the most aggressive cult into their society and that coupled with their unwavering adherence to sharia law, can only lead to one outcome. The Hollanders are beginning to wake up to this threat but I hope it isn’t too late. As for Sweden and Germany, it may already be too late.
