EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini gives a press briefing prior to a European foreign affairs council in Brussels
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said Monday that “terrorism is not a problem between the West and Islam: we need an alliance with our partners and dialogue,” before taking part in a Council of foreign ministers on the fundamentalist challenge following the attacks in Paris.
The meeting of European diplomacy chiefs takes place amid tight security with Belgian armed forces around European institution buildings for the first time.
Meanwhile, secret services and investigators are hard at work to neutralize the threat represented by dormant terror cells, mainly of foreign fighters – EU passport holders who fought in Syria under ISIS and have now returned home…
This is the standard meaningless statements that these hopeless “leaders” put forth. Does she really think that terrorists are interested in dialogue? No, she thinks “moderate Muslims” can be persuaded to take action.
Why would they? Saudi Arabia has been putting out its poisonous Wahhabism for decades. From reading about it, I get the impression that some of the Saudi royals are afraid of the Islamists themselves. So letting them carry on with their worldwide ranting protects them.
In 1979 some homegrown Saudi loons took over the Grand Mosque in Mecca. The leader thought he was the Mahdi. The Saudis were forced to ask the French to help them dislodge them. After that event, the country became even more conservative as the royals gave the fanatics more freedom.
Or take Turkey, their supposed ally in NATO. All that President Erdogan and his PM Davutoglu want to talk about is “Islamophobia” and evil European “xenophobes”. Their arrogance is boundless. They will do zero to help.
These European “leaders” are pathetic — sign of the decline and fall of Europe itself. They don’t seem to even know as much your humble blogger does about the Islamic world.
