Turkey has launched a new strategy led by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan: threaten Western nations with the possibility of more migrants flooding into the EU. Erdogan’s rhetoric escalated after the Netherlands expelled Turkish diplomats from the country. He retaliated by using nearly 300,000 Turks in Holland to organize and riot in Rotterdam. He also led a chorus of name-calling the Dutch people “neo-nazis.”
Turkey Weaponizing Refugees and Immigrants
This is not the first time Erdogan has politicized the migrant crisis and accused a European nation of racism or nazism. In August 2016, Austria announced a severe restriction on Syrian migrants entering the country, infuriating Turkey. They also openly criticized the July 2016 Turkish coup and encouraged the EU to reject Turkey’s bid as a member-state.
Turkey responded by calling Vienna “the capital of racism” in Europe. 360,000 Turks live in Austria and have attempted to organize politically.
The saga continued on March 16th, 2017, when Austria blocked a Turkish national party called the Grey Wolves from organizing. Similar restrictions on Turkish political influence were implemented in other European countries including the Netherlands and Germany.
Undoubtedly, Erdogan’s greatest threat is the nearly 2 million migrants he could unleash upon Europe. And he has alluded that he may do so. During the row with the Netherlands, Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister declared: “Europe has not kept its promises on the migrant deal, for us that agreement has ended.”
For the past decade, mass migration has provided Arab and African countries with an army of loyal Islamic supporters in Europe. Many European nations are nearing a breaking point, a point of no return. Native Europeans will be outnumbered in an intentional globalist maneuver to bring down the West.
Muslim migrants are ticking time bombs for Western nations. And they are ready to explode.
