Minister of Internal Affairs Suleyman Soylu expressed his protest to Europe with these words; “…Europe, I say this to you, do you have that kind of courage…? If you want, we can open the way for the 15 thousand immigrants we keep away from you every month and leave you at a loss. We have to remind you once more that you cannot set up a game in this region despite Turkey.” (News)
After Germany cancelled the Turkish government representatives’ programs, the Netherlands took one more step and cancelled the flight permission of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu. Just before this cancellation Çavuşoğlu had given this statement: “If the Netherlands cancels my flight, which they keep threatening with, if they do such a thing, our sanctions against the Netherlands, economic and political, will be very heavy… This will breed very heavy results…” The Netherlands has both cancelled the flight permission and afterwards has deported the Minister of Family and Social Policies Fatma Betül Sayan Kaya. Prevented the Turkish Ambassador from meeting with Minister Kaya, declared a regional curfew and with the commands given to the police, Turkish citizens that wanted to see the Minister was dealt with violence.
While all these happened days went by and the authorities that promised sanctions that would breed heavy results, unfortunately, forgot what they said once again. We even heard from the government authorities statements refuting their previous statements. Minister of Economy Nihat Zeybekçi refuted their own Minister and left those who expected some concrete steps, at a loss with these words: “I say this plainly, our economic and trade relations with any country-including the Netherlands- will not be on the table at this time.”
Has nothing been done? Of course, something has been done. All influential and official people have condemned what has been done, before the cameras. A complaint has been made to the European Union. The Dutch Ambassador who was already in the Netherlands was desired to stay a while longer in his country. The Turkey-Netherlands Alliance Group in the parliament was aborted. “The sister city” protocol between Istanbul and Rotterdam was cancelled. And also the Prime Minister and the President challenged, roared, screamed at Europe at every opportunity in this referendum process but did nothing. Lastly Minister of Internal Affairs showed his dissent by proposing to send immigrants to turn them bewildered.
The results of the responses were like this. The Prime Minister of the Netherlands Mark Rutte, commented to these responses by the government with: “Not bad”. The European Union considered the complaint and found it appropriate to counsel Turkey, after all that has happened.
All these showed once more the arrogance of a small country that has even a smaller population than Istanbul, the enmity of the West against Islam and the Muslims, and how helpless we are. The path to save Turkey from this helplessness does not lie in making Turkey a member of European Union it will only be possible through making it the leader of the Islamic Ummah. The governments who waited at the doors of Europe did not see; that the European Union member states made wars against Muslims and killed them, that they exploited the lands of the Muslims, that some of them still fight against Muslims. They accepted disgrace, humiliation, stalling and exploitation. Joining their union and working together with them means, becoming allies with them and accept them as your allies. This is a great crime in Islam and a great sin. Allah Subhanehu Wa Ta’alah says:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ لاَ تَتَّخِذُواْ الْيَهُودَ وَالنَّصَارَى أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضُهُمْ أَوْلِيَاء بَعْضٍ وَمَن يَتَوَلَّهُم مِّنكُمْ فَإِنَّهُ مِنْهُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ لاَ يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ
“O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.”
Challenging Europe, leaving them bewildered and teaching it a lesson, cannot be done with these weak steps taken. It can only be done by the abandoning the European values, democracy, secularism, human rights and middle age constitutions-laws you keep talking about; by returning to Islamic life which is a revelation of Allah. Leaving Europe in bewilderment, challenging Europe furthermore being the Conquerors of Europe can only be done by establishing the Khilafah Rashidah (righteous Caliphate) that will please Allah and with it carry Islam to the world, just like our forefathers did. That they, not only Germany and the Netherlands and the whole of Europe will be at a loss, knees shake and Allah willing and with his blessing, Rasullallah ﷺ heralded the head of Europe, Rome, will be conquered.
