From trolling to insults: How Dutch-Turkish row escalated quickly, in 9 quotes

From a Dutch leader telling a Turk to see tulips instead of rallying, to a top Turkish official comparing the Netherlands to “Nazi remnants” and a “banana republic,” the two sides didn’t pull their punches in the two countries’ worst diplomatic crisis so far. See if you can tell who said what.

1. ‘Come visit a museum, or see the tulips’

2. ‘Tyranny & oppression’

3. ‘Go away & take your fans with you’

4. ‘Nazi remnants & fascists’

5. ‘Shamefully misled’

6. ‘Tulips didn’t make these racists real men’

7. ‘Sanctions for a banana republic!’

8. ‘We won’t apologize, you apologize’

9. ‘Sacrifice relations for election? You’ll pay the price’

    on a serious note, it is escalating very quickly.

    * The Netherlands has advised the Dutch to leave Turkey
    * Someone replaced the Dutch flag with a Turkish one at the Dutch Consulate in Turkey
    * The Dutch/Turkish Rioters who attacked the police and destroyed property have been told by Turkey to report their horrible mistreatment by the police to the Turkish Consulate in the Netherlands

    Meanwhile.. France has managed again to anger the whole of Europe, by bending over and welcoming Turkish diplomats with open arms to attend and speak at Pro Erdogan rally in France
