ANKARA – Turkish President Recep Erdoğan said this week that the decision of the Austrian government’s closure of seven mosques and expulsion of 60 Muslim imams may lead to war “between the cross and the crescent.”
Erdoğan would have the world believe that Austria’s actions threaten world peace because its actions were “Islamophobic, racist, and discriminatory.” However, the closures and expulsions were based upon documented illegal activities of the Arab Religious Community organization, including training young boys to become martyrs for Islam.
Erdoğan appears to be attempting to divert and misdirect the world’s attention from the “increased activity on the part Turkish government to turn the mosques that were financed by the Turkish community and by the Turkish government, or imams that were deployed from Turkey as sort of political operatives.”
The Stockholm Center for Freedom has revealed mosques and Islamic leaders throughout Europe as Erdoğan’s fifth column and his strong card should he choose to strike at Europe.
In addition to threatening Austria and, for that matter, Christianity, Erdoğan has previously called for member nations of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to form an Army of Islam to attack and conquer Israel within a period of 10 days.
“If the OIC member states unite and form a joint military force, it will be the largest army in the world . . . The number of soldiers in active service in these countries is at least 5,206,100.” It was not a hollow threat. He said that Turkey “will serve as an important headquarters” during an attack on Israel.
This is not Erdoğan’s first tongue lashing of other European countries or of his plans for the expansion of Islam until “Europe will be all Muslim.” After Germany and the Netherlands quashed pro-Turkish rallies in their countries in 2017, Erdoğan declared that “Europe will pay for what they have done.”
What Europe has done has been to disrupt Erdoğan’s silent effort of engaging in demographic jihad. The process is a simple plan for the Muslim domination of Europe. It essentially encourages Muslims to move to another country and continue to expand its influence via the process of numerical domination.
The strategy includes bearing children in larger numbers than the rest of the population, which is happening. Italian Monsignor Carlo Liberati expressed concern in 2017 when he noted that “in 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. They have children and we do not; we are in decline.”
It is important for the world to take Erdoğan seriously. His threats are publicly revealing what he has long hoped and planned for.
After the all of the Ottoman Empire (which, coincidently, coincided with their defeat at the gates of Vienna, Austria), Kamal Ataturk eventually, and rather successfully, sought to westernize and secularize the Turkish nation, particularly through the education system.
Erdoğan has been quietly (as far as the outside world is concerned) closing public schools, often without notice, and replacing them with religious schools. Literally, tens of thousands of public school teachers have been fired and replace with imams and teachers from Islamic religious groups. Fifteen years ago, there were 450 religious (Muslim) schools in Turkey. Today there are 4,500 supported by a government budget of $1.5 billion. Ninety percent of the principals in 2,000 public schools have been replaced by graduates of Imam-led schools.
The public needs to be aware and cautiously watchful of Erdoğan’s threats, especially if he is reelected in the mid-June elections. A new term in office may be interpreted as a mandate or, at least, an opportunity to move forward with his agenda that is now apparent.
