“If you are willing to sacrifice Turkish-Dutch relations, you will pay for it,” Erdogan said on Sunday, as cited by Hurriyet. “What’s more, we’re not done yet,” the Turkish leader added.

Over the past few days, the West has revealed its “true face,” Erdogan continued, referring to the recent deportation of Turkish Family Minister Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya, who was escorted out of the Netherlands by police.

Erdogan reiterated his previous assertion that the Netherlands’ conduct towards the Turkish officials was a sign of “Nazism, fascism,” repeating once again. “I said Nazism is dead. I thought Nazism was over, but I was wrong. It turns out that Nazism is reawakening in the West,” the president asserted.

They will pay the price of treating my citizens, my foreign minister… in an impudent way,” he said.

Banning the family minister from entering the Turkish consulate was inconsistent with the freedom of movements, Erdogan said, hinting that he himself may travel to Europe to attend the rallies: “I can go to any country I want if I have a diplomatic passport.”

The Dutch “will learn what diplomacy is,” Erdogan said, adding that their actions “cannot remain unanswered,” according to AFP.

“They went as far as to lock the door of the consulate [in Rotterdam],” he stated.

Erdogan has also branded the Netherlands a “banana republic” for the way it treated Turkey’s foreign minister.

In another comment, the Turkish leader urged unspecified international organizations to “raise their voices” and impose sanctions on the Netherlands, AP reported.

The Netherland’s prime minister, Mark Rutte, reacted to Erdogan’s comments by saying that Ankara must apologize for comparing the Dutch to Nazis.

Rutte called the Turkish leader’s statements “unacceptable,” adding that they aren’t helping to de-escalate tensions between the two countries.

The Netherlands will have to respond if Turkey continues on its current path, he warned.

Earlier, Rutte said he is determined to ease the flare-up in tensions, saying “we want to be the more prudent party,” as quoted by Reuters.

“If they escalate, we will have to respond, but we will do everything in our power to de-escalate,” he said.

As tensions between the two countries mount, top-tier officials in Ankara have promised retaliatory measures. In Turkey, the authorities sealed off the Dutch embassy and consulate, while the Dutch ambassador to the Turkey, who is currently home on leave, was told not to return to his post “for some time.”

In his latest remarks on the conflict, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said making a formal apology “is not enough,” warning that the Netherlands’ “fascistic” actions will have consequences, according to Hurriyet.

Cavusoglu went even further in his accusations when he gave a speech in Metz in France on Sunday afternoon.

“The Netherlands, the so-called capital of democracy, and I say this in quotation marks because they are actually the capital of fascism,” said the Foreign Minister.

The French Foreign Ministry said that Paris “calls for a de-escalation” in tension between Turkey, the Netherlands, and other EU members.

“It also calls on the Turkish authorities to avoid excesses and provocations,” the ministry said in a statement.

Turkish Foreign Minister Cavusoglu was successful in addressing a rally in eastern France on Sunday, as Paris explained that “in the absence of a proven threat to public order, there was no reason to prohibit the event.”

    The German–Turkish Non-Aggression Pact (German: Türkisch-Deutscher Freundschaftsvertrag) (Turkish: Türk-Alman Dostluk Paktı) was signed between Nazi Germany and Turkey on June 18, 1941 in Ankara by German ambassador to Turkey Franz von Papen and Turkish Minister of Foreign Affairs Şükrü Saracoğlu.[1][2] It became effective on the same day.

    The pact, which was intended to be in force for a period of ten years, lasted only until 24 October 1945, when Turkey joined the United Nations.[3]

    There are considerable implications for Holland, the EU, and NATO in this crisis.

    First is that Dutch parliamentary elections are scheduled for later this week, with anti-immigration candidate Geert Wilders competing for a lead in the polls. Tonight’s activity, and possibly more protests in coming days, is sure to give Wilders a considerable boost.

      Their ideology is based on the superiority of the Turkish race and the Turkish nation.[45] According to Peters, they strive for an “ideal” Turkish nation, which they define as “Sunni-Islamic and mono-ethnic: only inhabited by ‘true’ Turks.”[46] A Turk is defined as someone who lives in the Turkish territory, feels Turkish and calls themselves Turkish.[46] In their ideology and activities, they are hostile to virtually all non-Turkish elements within Turkey, including Kurds, Alevis,[47] Armenians, Greeks, Christians overall, and Jews.[6][7][48] They embrace anti-Semitic conspiracy theories such as those put forward byThe Protocols of the Elders of Zion. They have distributed the Turkish translation of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.[49]
