Dutch Turkish Celebrations Condemned by Dutch Anti-Islam Politician

18 November 2011

Anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders has commented in de Volkskrant that next year’s celebrations marking 400 years of Dutch-Turkish relations should be stopped. According to Wilders the ‘Islamic regime’ in Turkey under President Gul and Prime Minister Erdogan threatens the country’s secular constitution and seeks to “re-Islamise the country”.
