The Brits can't catch a break. I never thought I'd say it, but despite having defeated the leftist Brown and elected the Conservative party candidate, David Cameron, who would have thought he'd be .....worse.
Yesterday Cameron made shocking and disastrous remarks, the implications of which are disastrous for freedom-loving peoples of the world. First, Cameron's vigorous insistence that Turkey be granted membership in the EU. Turkey would be the first Muslim majority country granted admittance into the EU. This would, in one stealth action, result in the radical islamization of the EU. Larger states have more votes than smaller ones in the EU and Turkey would be the largest, most populated country in the organization.
When decisions are not being taken by consensus, votes are weighted so that a country with a greater population has more votes within the Council than a smaller country (although not exact, smaller countries have more votes than their population would allow relative to the largest countries) .....more here
Further, EU members must have democratic, free market governments together with the corresponding freedoms and institutions, and respect the rule of law. Clearly Turkey's continued aggressive hostilities with Greece and Cyprus preclude that. And the rapid re-islamization of Turkey, the move away from Ataturk's reforms of secularization, should make Turkey's denial of membership a foregone conclusion.
Cameron speaks of "an extreme" Islam, what he actually is referring to is pure Islam, original Islam. Prime Minister of Turkey Erdogan said back in 2007,
"First of all, the 'moderate Islam' concept is wrong. The word 'Islam' is a simple word -- it is only Islam. If you say 'moderate Islam,' then an alternative is created, and that is 'immoderate Islam.' I cannot accept such a concept as a Muslim"
And he said this:
"The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and Muslims our soldiers…” said the Prime Minister of the increasingly Islamic Turkey Recipe Tayyip Erdogan, as he publicly read an Islamic poem.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel's position is that the EU should offer Turkey a "privileged partnership" instead of full membership. Turkey has dismissed that offer. French President Nicolas Sarkozy also opposes Turkey joining the EU. And rightly so.
Turkey must join EU, says Cameron: 'Those who are against are playing on fears of Islam'
David Cameron today accused critics of Turkey’s membership of the EU of playing on fears of Islam - as he pledged to ‘pave the road from Ankara to Brussels’.
In a speech in the Turkish capital the Prime Minister promised to ‘fight’ to help the Islamic state achieve its 50-year goal of EU membership.
He said that, by embracing the moderate Muslim nation, the EU can improve relations with the rest of the Islamic world.
And he hit out at those who ‘wilfully misunderstand Islam’ in order to oppose Turkey’s membership.
Pushing for EU membership: David Cameron with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara today
He said: ‘They see no difference between real Islam and the distorted version of the extremists.
‘They think the values of Islam can never be compatible with the values of other religions, societies or cultures.
‘All these arguments are just plain wrong. I want us to be at the forefront of an international effort to defeat them.’
Mr Cameron’s words put him at odds with France, Germany and Tory Right-wingers who believe Turkey may be incompatible with the EU.
EU countries are in a position to use their veto to block a move for Turkish accession. But they are now coming under pressure from the U.S. as well as Britain.
The Prime Minister hit out at ‘protectionists’ who see Turkey as an ‘economic threat’.
And he criticised those who see the world as a ‘clash of civilisations’ in which Turkey must choose sides.
So do we not defend our civilization? Do we just acquiesce? Is this what the Brits elected when they ushered in the new era of the Conservatives?
But Cameron did not stop there. He launched into an attack on the Jews (what Muslim trip is complete without a good dose of Islamic anti-semitism?).
The thing is, the bloody jihad convoy flotilla was launched in Turkey by the IHH. The State department will be designating the IHH a terrorist organization. What is Cameron doing? And who is he serving?
David Cameron today described Gaza as a 'prison camp' and appealed to the Israeli Government to allow the free flow of humanitarian goods and people in and out of the Palestinian territory.
An open air prison camp? More of the Islamic anti-semitic narrative. Britain is an open air prison!
There's an obesity problem in Gaza, for pete's sake. Check out the embarrassment of riches.
Gaza is free. Perhaps if they removed their teeth from Israel's neck and set about to live, work, create, invent, etc., and left the Jews alone, all would be well.
'The situation in Gaza has to change. Humanitarian goods and people must flow in both directions. Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp.
'The Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla was completely unacceptable. And I have told PM Netanyahu we will expect the Israeli inquiry to be swift, transparent and rigorous.'
The Prime Minister said he hoped that direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians would take place within the coming weeks and urged Turkey to press the parties to come together by 'making the case for peace'.
He said: 'Turkey's relationships in the region, both with Israel and with the Arab world, are of incalculable value."
