U.S. STATE DEPT GETS IT ALL WRONG ON TURKEY AND ITS EU MEMBERSHIP

Reader comment on item: A Democratic Islam?

Submitted by G. Marcus (United States), Apr 17, 2008 at 05:46

Is our own State Department knee-deep in a mind-boggling "unholy alliance" with the European Left on one hand and Wahhabi Islamists on
the other, currently promoting the entry of Turkey into the EU?

In Europe, the prime-movers behind this idea are Leftist, Nihilist and anti-Christian forces, many of them in positions of political power as
part of Socialist governments in key countries such as Germany, UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Greece, Spain (we know who helped Spain's leftist government get elected!). They are pushing it not as a constructive measure, but as a destructive move, aimed at hammering the last nail into the demise of the Church and Christianity in EU life.

EU Membership of a Turkish-Muslim population expected to reach some 100 million within a few decades would lead to large-scale
de-secularization and Islamization in Europe, and commit the continent to perennial internal strife, schisms and instability in the political,
cultural, religious, social, economic, and security spheres. Achieved through bloodless methods, it could be Jihadist Islam's greatest
conquest against the "Christian" world since the fall of Constantiple in 1453.

It would constitute such a blow to Western civilization that, it could very well mean the end of Europe as we know it, in addition to
that of a secular-democratic-unitary Turkey as well as a viable Israel.

Just over a decade ago, this very alliance of Foggy Bottom Arabists, European Leftists and Wahhabi Islamists, connived to bring the Oslo
disaster on Israel, a process that brought untold peril upon the Jewish state, while sparking a major rallying cause for global militant Islam.

Now the same unholy trio is embarking on a bigger project: To destroy Europe's Judeo-Christian civilization by way of opening the continent's
floodgates to an overwhelming influx of non-European Muslims.

Even Libya's Gaddafi called it an Islamic "Trojan Horse" of epic proportions!

On his return from Europe in the aftermath of the December 17, 2004, decision, Turkey's Islamist Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan was
hailed by jubilant supporters holding signs already calling him the "Fatih" (Conqueror) of Europe, an honorific Jihadist title prefixed to
the name of Mohammed II who conquered Constantinople and put an end to Christianity's Byzantine Empire.

Fortunately, Europe's population, alerted by recent Islamist turbulence in the continent as well as the perils of Jihadist terror, is
overwhelmingly opposed to the whole idea. Therefore, popular referandums in France and other countries, are widely expected to put a
lid on Brussel's folly at any time during the 10 to 15 year candidacy process.

In January 2005, France's Nicholas Sarkozy and Germany's Angela Merkel, leaders of their countries' conservative movements, made a pact to submit the Turkish membership issue to a popular referandum in these two leading EU nations, where it is almost certain to be turned town. In the meantime, Turkey's Islamist Erdogan government continues to exploit his country's unlikely EU membership in order to
systematically erode the power of the country's pro-Western and secular forces, including the military establishment that for decades has been the sole guardian of Turkey's secular democracy against creeping Islamization.

Everything that happens in terms of Islam and politics in Turkey since 1970 -- when Saudi-surrogate, and Mr Erdogan's mentor, Necmettin
Erbakan launched his political career -- has been guided by a Wahhabi agenda and funding. And everything that happens in terms of Wahhabi Islamism in the world is based on one long-term goal: Restoration of the Islamic Caliphate and the forging of a Wahhabi-led renewed Islamic Empire extending from the Indian Ocean all the way to the Atlantic.

But until the Islamization of Turkey is fully accomplished, no Wahhabi Islamist can get his hands on the Caliphate Seal -- and accompanying
Holy Relics -- which, since the abolition of the Ottoman Caliphate by Kemal Ataturk in 1924, remain a prized possession in the hands of the
Turkish Republic's secular guardians. That is why the Islamization of Turkey is such a top-priority target of Wahhabi Islamists, and one that
is cardinal enough to orchestrate the whole deception of a EU membership.

If, due to the domestic "carte blanche" accorded to Mr Erdogan during the coming 5-10 years of his country's EU candidacy process, Turkey's
regime is lost to Islamism, in line with long-term Wahhabi strategy and as implemented by the Erdogan regime, not only Turkey, but also Western interests and Middle East stability are bound to suffer a collapse that will make the Iranian debacle pale by comparison.

In midst of the War on Terror, what business does the U.S. State Department have picking the wrong side, again?

And what is Bush foreign policy doing, playing strange bedfellows to Europe's anti-Christian Left and the world's Wahhabi Islamists?
