Despite the initiative being spearheaded by France to create a “Mediterranean Union” composed of the EU and the Muslim countries of North Africa and the Middle East, tensions between Europe and the Islamic states bordering the Mediterranean have been growing steadily.
Within Morocco there have been recent calls to “liberate” the territories of Ceuta and Melilla from Spain, as the first step towards reclaiming al-Andalus from the infidels. Col. Muammar Gaddafi of Libya has been blackmailing Switzerland as well as the rest of Europe, and the Swiss have even resorted to paying ransom in order to secure the release of a businessman held hostage by Libya.
The most disturbing trend is, of course, the growing Islamic fundamentalism of the Turkish government. The attempt by Turkish radicals — with the thinnest of cover to disguise official government sponsorship — to run the Israeli blockade of Gaza is only the most recent example of growing Turkish hostility towards its erstwhile allies.
Official Islamic radicalism in Turkey is of great concern, due to the country’s membership in NATO. In the following essay, the Norwegian blogger Fjordman analyzes the plight in which NATO finds itself, and the possible danger that the alliance poses to Europe in its currently existing form.
Who Will Protect Us From NATO?
The Western defensive alliance NATO was a product of the Cold War. While it may have been a useful tool back then, the organization has so far proven utterly incapable of dealing with the tidal wave of Islamic aggression and Third World invasion through mass immigration that is engulfing the Western world. It is likely that there will soon be a concerted push by Morocco to retake the Spanish-ruled enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla. How will NATO react to such a blatant attack on one of its member states? Will it respond in any meaningful way at all?
An attack on Ceuta would be highly symbolic since the European global expansion started in this exact place in the fifteenth century. After the Reconquista, the Portuguese occupied the strongholds because this region was used as a base for Jihadist Muslim attacks against Christians in the Iberian Peninsula. Ceuta was captured by the Portuguese in 1415. Only a few years later, Henry the Navigator arranged for organized explorations of the African coast. The rest is history, but that history is now being reversed by a declining Europe and a resurgent Islam.
It is becoming increasingly evident to intelligent observers that the experiment with secularism in Turkey is failing and that the country is reemerging as a hostile Islamic power, the way it has been for most of the past 1,000 years. There are clear parallels between how the USA currently acts toward the Turkish neo-Ottomans and how Western European powers acted vis-à-vis the original Ottomans in the late 1800s. For example, there is the unholy practice of using smaller nations as bargaining chips to appease Muslims. The difference is that the USA treats all of Europe the way the British and French used to treat the Balkan Christians, by consistently pushing for Turkish membership in the European Union. NATO has actively supported the Islamization of Europe through its military actions in Serbia and Kosovo.
The USA has been trying the remake Europe and the world in its image at least since the days of Woodrow Wilson. This policy entails breaking down traditional European social structures and encouraging Third World mass immigration, just as US authorities have been doing for decades in North America. Native Europeans need to be “cured” of their cultural identities. American authorities are just as much behind this Globalist Multicultural program — perhaps more so — as their Western European counterparts through the EU and its pro-Arab networks.
It is clear that Turkish PM Erdogan wants a break with the West in favor of an Islamic bloc, which means that Turkey is a Trojan horse within NATO. The question is how to deal with Turkey without strengthening Erdogan’s hand further. The question after that is whether we need NATO at all anymore. NATO is supposed to “protect” us, but from what? The Russians?
It is currently the policy of all NATO member states, from Canada to the Netherlands, to promote the Islamization of Western countries. US General Wesley Clark, who led NATO’s bombing of Christian Serbs in Kosovo, stated flatly in 1999 that “There is no place in modern Europe for ethnically pure states. That’s a 19th century idea and we are trying to transition into the 21st century, and we are going to do it with multiethnic states.” Yet, courtesy of NATO, Kosovo is now a nearly ethnically pure state of predominantly Muslim Albanians.
Is this policy still the official Multicultural doctrine of NATO, to destroy Christian Europeans wherever they live in favor of “multiethnic states”? If so, who will protect us from NATO?
