Istambul: Dutch flag pulled away from Consulate

Turks Istambul

After the Turkish riots in Rotterdam,  caused by denial of the Dutch authorities to honor Turkish diaspora request for a rally in support of the President Erdogan, the relations between The Netherlands and Turkey continued to degenerate.

Today the Dutch flag was removed from the General Consulate building by protestors in Istanbul, and replaced by the Turkish one with the Islam symbol of half-moon. A man, conducting the replacement loudly shouted “Allah Akbar!” (Video below).

Dutch leader of the Party for Freedom (PVV) dabbed the Turkish diaspora the 5th column (‘Quinta columna’), and requested to end practise of the double nationality, and open borders.”The 5th column should go out… Borders closed.”

The hypocrisy of the Turkish authorities organizing the rally in support of Erdogan in Rotterdam startled many: the numbers of jailed victims of regime actively circulated in social media: 153 journalists, 13 elected MPs, 80 elected mayors, countless activists remain jailed in Turkey.
