the "Continental Citizen" in a EU that is in a cold war against NATO

Reader comment on item: Why I Stand with Geert Wilders
in response to reader comment: Wilders - the most important European alive today

Willem, luckily Wilders sees Europe as only one particular territory with jewish-christian culture. The "Continental Citizen" idea is somewhat the idealistic basis of eu multiculturalism. The EU as an institution seeks their own strength by deliberately finding diplomatic contacts and allies in countries that are in opposition to the US, especially their policies with respect to Israel. Another effort in order strengthen EU identity is to become independent of NATO. I regard both policies and ambitions as some sort of cold war against NATO.
