With mass rallies still ongoing at the consulate, the Dutch police asked Kaya to promptly leave the country for Germany, accompanied by a police convoy. "You must go back to the German border,” the police told the minister, as reported by NOS correspondent Robert Bas. However, the minister reportedly rejected the request, after police refused to let her address the protesters, NOS reported.
The Turkish minister has now been detained by Dutch police and is to be deported!

Deporting a diplomat from a foreign country?

That's one you don't hear everyday, and them sounds like fightin' words to me.

Then if Turkey declares war they can all be deported as enemy aliens.

WTF! No i don't want her in my country either. She is the freaking minister of family affairs. She tried to attend a political rally in the netherlands. We have enough turkish ministers/diplomats flooding into our country under false pretenses. Great now they will be going to riot in our country next. # Erdogan!

Yeah, but I still don't have a clue as to why this is happening.

Something about some action against the Turkish Finance Minister is all I could surmise.

What exactly did the Dutch do to piss the Turks off in in the first place?

I'm confused...

The Turkish foreign minister wanted to address resident Turks at a rally. The Dutch government were worried about security, and refused to allow it.

Interesting dots you are connecting, could you expand a little on that?

I'm also seeing tweets that Rotterdam is under a state of emergency within the inner city. This is getting crazy!

Well Flynn worked as a lobbyist firm in the Netherlands and was hired by Turkey to look into or what ever into Fethullah Gülen who is held up in the US and is wanted in Turkey as well as being linked to the attempted coup ...I am not sure how one might connect those dots but they came to mind when reading your thread .

Thank you for clarifying. Was the protest being held by Turkish immigrants in Rotterdam rallying against the Dutch government in some way. Was the Minister there to fan the flames?

Oh yes, I do know what you are referring to now. Flynn is no longer in the picture, but I suppose there could be something more to it. Gulen is the guy Ergodan wanted shipped to Turkey, but Obama didn't allow it, right?

That would be my guess too. We currently have the same problem in Germany. I read some tweets about the turkish law and politicians are apparently not allowed to campaign in foreign countries. That explains the cloak and dagger crap we are now observing.

Yes, I think that sums up the situation as I understand it. Latest report on Twitter is that the "Families" minister HAS been towed away.

I really dont see any upside for Turkey on this one... I cant see Turkey letting the guy (Geulen) who is in the US under asylum back into Turkey to give a speech.

Throwing around the Nazi word also is not helping Turkeys position either.

Actually, a German friend just explained this to me in detail.

Erdogan is coming up for a power referendum and he's sending his ministers to foreign countries so that those with dual citizenship can vote for Erdogan. He wants to stay in power so he needs all the help he can get, including from those who no longer live in Turkey. However, Germany and Holland do not want his strongman political rallies on their territory, and have denied ministers to speak there. The upcoming referendum will give Erdogan even more power if he wins, making him president for life.

Correct and George Webbs braverman files also links Gulen to the Muslim Brotherhood and the Awan family that was inside the US Govt and caught stealing highly classified stuff .

It also revolves around Turkey changing their constitution that would, from what I have read, make Erdogen, essentially, a Sultan with massive power.
