From Europe: Who Will Protect Us from NATO?
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.
