I’ve long believed that NATO–the North Atlantic Treaty Organization–jumped the shark.
NATO Chief Rasmussen Pandering to Muslims
It’s ineffective and a waste of time and money, in no small part because we’ve lobbied for and pushed many dangerous and/or irrelevant nations for admittance into NATO. And NATO is infected by the membership of Turkey, the increasingly extremist Muslim state. The U.S. shares a good deal of intelligence with NATO, which will ultimately be in the hands of our Islamic enemies via our Turkish “friends.” And Turkey initially held up NATO’s new secretary-general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s, nomination because he headed Denmark, and Turkey was upset over the Danish Mohammed cartoon publication.
In recent years–recent decades–NATO has done little of consequence that Western allies couldn’t do on their own.
And Rasmussen’s current Islamo-pandering trip in Turkey is yet the latest slide down the ladder of irrelevance. But the Islamic world is eating it up. That’s ironic, considering that NATO was founded in 1949, in the aftermath of Europe’s liberation from the Nazis. Now, that Europe is re-enslaving itself with the new Nazis–Muslims–NATO has chosen that path, too, apparently.
Eyeing better ties with the Islamic world after the Prophet cartoon crisis, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen joined Turkish leaders at a Ramadan iftar on Thursday, August 27.
“Please see my presence here tonight as a clear manifestation of my respect for Islam as one of the world’s great religions,” Rasmussen said at the iftar banquet with Turkish Primer Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, reported Agence France Presse (AFP). . . .
Rasmussen was named the new NATO chief earlier this year after Turkey, NATO’s predominantly Muslim member, dropped objections to his nomination after intervention from US President Barack Obama.
Ankara had long objected Rasmussen’s nomination over his mishandling of the crisis of cartoons satirizing Prophet Muhammad . . . .
Rasmussen also praised Turkey as a bridge between the Muslim world and the West.
“I’m confident that we will make real progress in building trust and cooperation between the Alliance and partners in the Mediterranean and the Middle East.”
Translation: We’re gonna sell Israel down the river to please our Muslims.
Erdogan, the Turkish premier, described Rasmussen’s Islam remarks as ‘helpful and encouraging’.
“(It) will be a meaningful message to the people of my country and the Muslim world,” he said.
But the Turkish premier angrily rejected the West’s labeling of extremist violence as “Islamist terrorism”, urging more Western respect for Islam.
Sadly, Islam gets way too much respect in the West already. That’s the reason Rasmussen was kissing Mohammedan ass over shawarmeh in Turkey.
Like I said, NATO jumped the shark long ago.
