In addition to what i have written until now, i think it is very important to see what is happening in the Islamic world in general as a result of the Turkish and Saudi Arabic policy, which are definitely combined and the co-operation for me should be considered granted.

Our world today is more interactive than ever so isolating regions like Middle-East, Balkans, South east Asia is not the best way to observe correctly what is happening. For this reason i believe that when we just observe what is happening in the Middle East we do not actually get the whole picture, i do not know if the leading Islamic governments have realised this, but it definitely works for them,

US started to favour Turkey clearly since the invasion in Cyprus, after that though the support was a bit more balanced, it was clear though and i think that it basically came because of the good relations between Israel and Turkey,. Since Turkish leaders gained the trust of the US their policy changed as i have written before and when AKP took over it became mere nationalistic than ever, they have abandoned good relations with Israel and they have supported all Islamic military movements from the Balkans and the Middle East to China. Except from the current distabillization in the Middle East which is caused because of the Turkish and Saudi policy, there is another destabilised region because of them and this is the Balkans. There the Islamic imperialism and extremism is expressed by the Albanians. Even though Turkey supported Bosnians in the beginning, it seems like Bosnians do not really want to play their game and they just want to live in peace, the Albanians though have raised the idea of Big Albania Seeing that Turkey is gaining everything in the region and the full support of the US and that the latter supported 100% the Kossovar Albanians, by adopting the Turkish theories that the Islamists in the Balkans are going to work for the Americans, now they are asking more and more. The nationalist movements and parties in Albania are becoming even stronger and even the main parties have started to adopting some of their opinions, Turkey and Saudi Arabia is supporting these movements with a lot of money. Of course this could not go unanswered by the countries and the people that feel threatened and as a result nationalism is gaining power in the Balkans against democracy and stability.

Another strategy that Turkey and their student Albania are using is the existing minorities in neighbour countries regardless of their nationality, regardless of the international agreements, regardless of the international law, they are trying to use them for their interests so when these minorities are abroad they ask for more and more "rights", which at some point exceed any logic because they have as a purpose Turkey and Albania o be able to inervene in internal matters of other sovereign countries and at the same time when minorities are in their country, they are trying to physically eliminate them! This is a clearly fascist policy and to be precise it is islamic-fascist policy.

Recently Turkey was given an active role in China as well. In China there is a Muslim population called Uighurs and Turkey sent a very active ambassador in the region and i am almost sure that in the near future there is going to be a serious destabilization in the region, even though China is not playing with such things, this is going to be used as an internal threat from the US. Perhaps as a reward, i do not know, Turkey is gaining access to Malaisia and Indonesia and Pakistan markets so to sell mainly weapons, but at the same time it is gaining access to the politics of these countries and the Islamic Imperialism is gaining even more power. All this are of course supported by Saudi Arabia.

This Islamic movement is gaining a lot of power also in Africa, the countries there are torn apart by "civil" wars between muslims and Christians or other religion groups, this of course is happening because China has gained to much power in Africa and the US want to kick them out.

The result of all this is creating a very strong Islamic Axis between Saudi Arabia and Turkey with the addition of the Arabic money of the Emirates, these money support the weapon industry of the US and are supposed to serve the American economical interests, the strength that this axis is acquiring is to big though and every sense of balance is getting lost. Unfortunately the US has decided to abandon old allies and support the Islamic-fascist axis. I do not know whether this serves the American real politics, in my opinion no, because the strength of the Islamists is becoming to big and i am afraid that very soon the US is going to lose any kind of control they think they have upon them.

Unfortunately, my country is among them which is going to be and is right now, negatively influenced by all this, another country that even if it has a stronger influence to the US government, is unavoidably going to be negatively influenced is Israel, and of course Cyprus, Bulgaria, FYROM, Armenia, and in less immediate extent Italy, Spain and France. Serbia has already understood the consequences of the Islamic nationalism and it's own nationalism and remains to be seen whether there are going to me more consequences on this country.

If we accept the above theory then it is obvious that the US has changed priorities and old allies are not so important to it's government, so these countries must defend themselves towards the US policy, because the new allies the US support are targeting the above countries clearly. It is very important for the above countries to form a strategic alliance, at least Israel, Cyprus, Greece, Bulgaria, are 4 countries that share common interests and could and should form this kind of alliance to defend themselves. FYROM is playing a weird and very dangerous game, so it is up to them, even though i do not have much hope with their current government in power, those that rule that country are trapped among lies, fake history, blur targets, and Turkey! Armenia is another story and i think that they must be seriously considered as an ally, even though this could mean a spoil of the relations between Azerbaizan and israel, because Azerbaizan is moving quickly into becoming a sattelite of Turkey if not a district.

At the same time those countries should try to use all their influence and political power to convince the US government that their current policy is wrong and against not only their interests, but also finally against the US interests, an opening to Russia is necessary as well. Russia is considered to be an authoritarian country, but i strongly believe this is not the absolute truth. There are a lot of things to be improved in the Russian Democracy, but nevertheless there are very important steps made and i believe that Russia is not an enemy to the Western world's interests, in fact i believe that the only solution to our society's problems is an active collaboration of all the Western countries, US included, with Russia.

In all this i do not even dare to refer to EU leaders, because they are the most narrow minded leaders this world has ever seen and their interests lack of any value or vision and they have not realised still that the centre of the world is not Europe any more, they remind me of those people that still believed that earth is the centre of the Universe, even after the humanity discovered the truth!

You must have noticed that i have not referred to Iran at all. I believe that Iran's threat is overestimated. Iran is not controlling anyone in the Middle East or anywhere else, the only organisation collaborating with them is Hezbollah and Assad is making alliances with anyone that might help him to stay in power for a couple more weeks. They are definitely a threat to Israel with their supposed future nukes, but the truth is that the most help to acquire nukes they are getting it from their hostile Islamic countries, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, (recently was proven that even though the embargo, Turkey was buying Oil from Iran by giving gold and who knows what else is happening down there), would n't mind a nuclear Iran as long as they acquired some as well!

In conclusion, a strategic alliance among Israel, Greece, Cyprus and Bulgaria is necessary and among other things they have to try and convince their ally, old ally at least, the US that they are supporting a world terrorist state organisation, which is destabilizing the whole world and probably not in the interest of the US as they currently believe. This threat, in my opinion is the biggest one these countries have encountered until now, Islamic fascism is knocking our door, some have chosen not to listen (EU) it remains to be seen what the rest of us are going to do...........
