Dutch Hypocrites won't allow meddling at home, but their Ambassador Meddling in Macedonia is Ok
Sunday, 12 March 2017

Less than a day after Dutch authorities prevented Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu from flying to Rotterdam, Turkey's family minister, Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya, said on Twitter she was being escorted back to Germany.

"The world must take a stance in the name of democracy against this fascist act! This behavior against a female minister can never be accepted," she said. The Rotterdam mayor confirmed she was being escorted by police to the German border.

What is completely bizarre in this incident is that the Dutch Police did not allow the Turkish Minister to enter her own consulate. She holds diplomatic immunity, so how is a Government official not allowed to enter their own compound? It breaks every international law.

The alleged reason for the Dutch government is that it saw the potential to import divisions into its own Turkish minority, which has both pro- and anti-Erdogan camps. Dutch politicians across the spectrum said they supported Prime Minister Mark Rutte's decision to ban the visits.

So, the Dutch are not very keen on allowing a foreign Minister even access to their own consulate, but their Ambassador in Macedonia Wouter Plomp has been constantly meddling in the internal affairs in the country by having frequent meetings with the opposition, even exerting pressure on the president telling him what he ought to be doing!?

So which is it? You won't allow meddling at home, but are happy to meddle somewhere else? Your meddling is all about "democracy", but when others do it, then it's not?
