A shorter version of this essay was published yesterday at Big Peace.
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.
Appeasement doesn’t work. In the good old days when educated Westerners read their Machiavelli and understood it they knew that being both feared and loved is good, but if you have to choose between the two, it is better to be feared than loved. We can live with having enemies as long as they respect us, yet today we give them no reason to do so.
The foolish policies pursued by Western nations in Iraq and Afghanistan cannot work; it is impossible to export “democracy” to backward Islamic tribal cultures, and it is meaningless to waste young men’s lives and valuable resources on attempting to do this while sharia law is spreading within the West, unopposed and often with the approval of Western authorities.
Western European authorities have already virtually surrendered. In his infamous Cairo speech in June 2009, President Obama made it clear that he will actively aid the Islamization of the Western world and work against all those who oppose this policy. Frankly, the USA is currently surrendering even faster to Muslims and their demands than the Europeans are doing.
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?
