The multinational proposal tabled last year by the parliamentarians of the Council of Europe (CoE), the large intergovernmental organization that champions democracy, the rule of law and fundamental human rights in 47 European countries, has led to a resolution that calls on the regime of Islamist Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to stop funding Islam for political goals.
More such ineffective resolutions mean more wasted time and money. Erdogan has long thumbed his nose at the West and declared: “Talk to the hand.” Erdogan makes his own rules, has his own goals for a revived Ottoman Empire, has wrongly accused Europe of starting a war between the cross and the crescent, and aims to militarily attack Israel. Until the EU and the rest of the West realize that the Islamic concept of the world divided into two camps — the House of War (Dar al Harb) and the House of Islam (Dar al Islam), with the latter having the imperative to conquer the former — they will continue to fail to defend freedom and Western civilization.
Erdogan has also threatened the West, stating: “If Europe continues this way, no European in any part of the world can walk safely on the streets.”
