DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 11, 2017, 3:32 PM (IDT)
Ankara called the Dutch “Nazis” – repeating last week’s curse on the German government – for refusing Turkish foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu permission to address a Turkish rally in Rotterdam on Saturday. When the minister flew in anyway, he was denied a Dutch landing permit. Tayyip Erdogan has been trying to canvass support for extending his presidential powers in the large Turkish communities of Germany and the Netherlands when it is put to referendum in April.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
