UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The Egyptian expert on international relations, Mohamed Hamed, confirmed that the attack carried out by the suspect in the Netherlands could be a quick reaction to the horrific massacre of two mosques in New Zealand.

The Egyptian expert said in remarks to RT, that Turkey and the Netherlands is not in harmony and there is a very negative Dutch view of the Turkish government, and believes that Ankara is not worthy of entering Europe.

“The suspected attacker in the shooting of a bus in the Netherlands may have carried out this operation in response to what the New Zealand killer did several days ago, especially since he was born in Turkey.”

“It could be a quick reaction,” he said. “Turkey is leading the countries that are pursuing a (national religious-nationalist) war between the old Ottoman nationalism and the current European nationalism, the ideology of political Islam and the ideology of political Christianity.”

He pointed out that it was reached that the extreme right of the AKP in Turkey, facing the extreme right in all Europe, and this is a major conflict resulting in such incidents.

The Dutch police announced that they identified the bomber on Monday, which led to the death of one person and wounded others in the city of Utrecht, and reported that the Turkish porter Gokman Tanis, and published his picture.

Trent, New Zealand, killed 50 people by shooting indiscriminately in two churches in Christchurch last Friday in the worst crime of its kind in New Zealand, and wrote offensive language to Turkey and the Ottoman state.
