    Europe, Beware – Erdolf Ain’t The Only Dangerous Turk 


    One cannot deplore Erdogan too often.

    He is a dangerous Islamist, authoritarian and aggressive.

    Only Erdoğan is a problem? Kemalist newspaper says Greece is occupying "18 Turkish islands" 6

    .

    But his regime is not the only Turk entity that represents a menace to our Greek allies.

    As April elides into May, we come across a report on what are sometimes called ‘the so-called “secularist” and “progressive” nationalist Kemalists,’ whom Western observers often deem an infinitely more promising alternative to Erdolf.

    And it turns out they too are revanchists, ‘dreaming of expanding Turkey’s borders into Greece.’

    This time, Sözcü newspaper has joined the choir of Turks dreaming of occupying Greek islands.

    …and that’s an ‘opposition’ newspaper!

    Writing a blog like this is a learning process and I’m more than willing to admit I have much to learn about that part of the world and who did what to whom in the aftermath of WW1.

    I have to thank the newspaper Greek City Times for reminding us that ‘Turkey’s founding father,’Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, while he did a fair job of stamping out backward ‘caliphate’ customs,viz. he…

    .

    Ataturk – no uptights at his parties

    “…..closed all religious courts and schools, prohibited the wearing of headscarves among public sector employees, abolished the ministry of canon law and pious foundations, lifted the ban on alcohol, adopted the Gregorian calendar in place of the Islamic calendar, made Sunday a day of rest instead of Friday, changed the Turkish alphabet from Arabic letters to Roman ones.”     http://dailycaller.com/2017/05/28/guns-politics-the-rise-of-ataturk/

    ….also stamped out a million Greeks!

    More than one genocidal atrocity occurred in the last century, and it’s a shame that all of them don’t get equal attention.

    There’s a documentary included in the GCT link, called “Lethal Nationalism: Genocide of the Greeks 1913-1923,” which ought to be compulsory watching.

    I append that link, because it goes into considerable historical detail – most of us know a bit about the Treaty of Versailles…

    …but the Treaty of Lausanne’s virtually unknown outside of senior common rooms! – which you can dip into, to get a proper perspective on the Turks’s predatory position on Greek islands like Rhodes.

    Solidarity With Tsipras? Pass That Long Spoon, Please! 


    Yes, I know it’s distasteful to have to applaud a notorious Red, but now and then…

    …needs must!

    Greece’s Red Tsipras is entirely correct to denounce Erdolf’s outrageous demand that the Turkish officers quite rightly granted asylum – A Fair Trial In Erdolf Land? Har-Har-Har! – be handed back for a typical Turk kangaroo court to impose the Islamist dictator’s vengeance on them.

    Tsipras has accused Turkey of keeping the pair as “hostages” to try to exchange them for eight Turkish servicemen who sought refuge in Greece…

    Erdogan has also stepped up aggressive activity in the Aegean, not just marauding onto tiny islands mentioned in the above article, but even, according to other media, setting his sights on the indisputably Greek island of Rhodes.

    And let’s be frank – it ain’t just Erdolf – the main ‘democratic’ opposition party’s only quarrel with his regime on this matter is that he’s not being tough enough!  Turkey Targeting Greece – Again

    Time for Western countries to shape up.

    NATO should expel Turkey.

    As for the dirty deal on crimmigrants concocted by Mama Stasi and Juncker, Brussels should be told to get real.

    Let’s use NATO alliance warships to turn back illegal incursions, and, as a first step to removing the Enemy Within Europe…

    …let’s declare that for every ‘migrant’ allowed to cross from Turkey, ten Turkish passport holders resident in European countries will be deported back to where they belong.
