With Turkey locked in an explosive crisis with the European Union that erupted in the run-up to the polls, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu predicted that "religious wars" will start in Europe.
"You look at the social democrats and the fascist Wilders, there is no difference, they have the same mentality," Cavusoglu said, quoted by state-run news agency Anadolu, referring to the ruling Liberal VVD party which won the most seats against Wilders and his Freedom Party (PVV).
Turkey and Europe have been locked in a diplomatic spat after the Netherlands and Germany blocked Turkish ministers from holding rallies to secure a "yes" vote in next month's referendum on expanding President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's powers.
While Erdogan has repeatedly accused the countries of acting like "Nazis", the European Union has warned Ankara to show moderation in its language.
"Where are you going, where are you taking Europe?" asked Cavusoglu, addressing Europe's leaders.
"You have begun to disintegrate Europe and take Europe to the cliff. Soon religious wars will begin in Europe," Cavusoglu warned.
"Because they were of different faiths, they killed each other 100 years ago," he said, without elaborating further on what he was referring to.
Cavusoglu questioned The Netherlands' understanding of "humanity, democracy and freedom", insisting Turkey would not remain passive against such actions.
"You will see in the coming period, we will take further steps," the minister added without giving further detail.
On April 16, Turks will decide whether to approve constitutional changes to create an executive presidency, which the government insists will be like that of France or the United States but critics say it will lead to one-man rule.
Late Wednesday, Cavusoglu threatened to unilaterally scrap a March 2016 deal that has substantially reduced the flow of migrants and refugees to the EU.
