Interfaith lunacy: Spain and the Alliance of Civilizations

The United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC), an initiative launched and supported by the U.N. secretary-general and co-sponsored by Spain and Turkey, aims to encourage dialogue and cooperation between different communities, cultures and civilizations and to build bridges between peoples and individuals, beyond their cultural or religious differences.

It is encouraging that more than 140 countries and international organizations have now joined UNAOC’s Group of Friends, which is committed to the principles of respect, mutual understanding and tolerance, and to embracing cultural diversity. The Spanish government strongly supports multilateralism. We are committed to this United Nations program, and intend to go on supporting and co-sponsoring the UNAOC – because Spain believes that now, more than ever, we need instruments like the Alliance of Civilizations to foster tolerance and cross-cultural and interfaith dialogue.

Spain is, therefore, working in close cooperation and coordination with the Turkish government to develop guidelines and projects for the Alliance of Civilizations, together with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations Nassir al-Nasser…

Yep, Sultan Erdogan is really interested in an ‘Alliance of Civilizations’. He is taking Turkey back to Ottoman times. Like all current Islamists, he is going for world domination for Islam. How stupid can people get to not see it?

    Pretending to build bridges with those who are hell bent on either killing you or subjugating you is lunacy. Unless all sides are interested in bridge building, it is suicide.

      The Muslim smile and woo the credulous leftist “cosmopolitans”. They are in for a serious shock. Islam is not known for compromising.

    They are all just talent free sleazy con artists terrified at the prospect of ever being forced to try earning a precarious living doing an actual productive real world job.

    There was no bridge building at the Battle of Lepanto, but it brought Spain and Turkey to an understanding that Turkey would curb its ambitions.

    That’s a blatant twist (and therefore a rejection) of Samuel P. Huntington’s “Clash of Civilizations”.

    The far-left media outlets in Europe (ARTE springs to mind in particular) devoted an important part of their time debunking the thesis as soon as Huntington’s work started gaining considerable readership in the late 1990s and early 2000s: especially under the Bush years.
    A frequent argument on their part was that Turkey represented a symbiosis between Islam and West, they would often praise Erdogan and the AKP as a living antithesis of Huntingdon’s theory and an example for everyone to follow.
    Of course, fate has proven time and again how unwise, projective, and expeditive they were.

    I’m personally all for an alliance of advanced civilisations, between the Western and Oriental civilisations against the islamic world, which is neither advanced nor civilised. And that was also Huntingdon’s sole mistake by the way, Islam is no civilisation, it is a low-cultured geopolitical bloc, a wasteland and nothing else.

    This is more evidence that any sane government will at least withhold all payments to the United Nations if not outright quit this center of corruption.
