A Turkish minister has claimed "holy wars will soon begin" in Europe, in spite of the defeat of far-right leader Geert Wilders in the Netherlands elections.
Mevlut Cavusoglu, Turkey’s foreign minister, did not welcome the victory for Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s centre-right People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD).
“Now the election is over in the Netherlands...when you look at the many parties you see there is no difference between the social democrats and fascist Wilders,” he said according to a translation by Hurriyet.
“All have the same mentality. Where will you go? Where are you taking Europe? You have begun to collapse Europe. You are dragging Europe into the abyss. Holy wars will soon begin in Europe.”

It's not about religion, it's not some global agenda being played out, it's just what always is if a huge war starts:
The people in power are crazy idiots.

They are now threatening to unleash a surge of refugees into Europe unless they are given VISA-free travel within the EU, which is essentially the same thing.
Wilders didn't even win, but his controversial opinions have sparked a debate in Europe and put a lot of pressure on the ruling center-right VVD in the Netherlands.
This just vindicates what he's been saying
