Turkish top dog Erdogan has removed the sabre from the scabbard. Spilling vitriolic diatribe from d’mout this Mideast mental case has started a fight in which he cannot win. He has aspirations of filling a life-long ambition of recreating the Ottoman Empire. Currently he is emulating China’s action in the South China Sea. He has threatened Greece, Italy and Cyprus.
THE TIME HAS COME TO STOP THIS MANIAC BY ENGAGEMENT IF NECESSARY. THERE IS NO TELLING HOW MANY CHRISTIANS HE WILL KILL ON HIS WAY TO MIDEAST HEGEMONY.

Erdogan’s Ottoman Aspirations
Sinclair Jenkins, American Renaissance, September 9, 2020
The Turkish government made international news in July when it decided to turn the Hagia Sophia, a 6th-century Orthodox church built by the Emperor Justinian, into a mosque. By changing Hagia Sophia’s status after 75 years as a museum, Ankara gave a clear sign of aggressive Islamism. The message became even clearer when last month it decided to turn Istanbul’s Church of St. Saviour, a 4th-century Greek Orthodox church with a history stretching back to Emperor Constantine, into a mosque as well. An imam with a conqueror’s sword was at the first Islamic prayer service at Hagia Sophia.
One of Mr. Erdogan’s most effective weapons is people. In March 2017, he spoke to supporters in the Turkish city of Eskisehir about their duty to have children. He urged this duty especially on Turks living in Europe, because having children is “an act of revenge against the West’s ‘injustices’.”
One of the few voices raising the alarm is French President Emmanuel Macron, who weeks ago announced France’s support for Cyprus and Greece “in the face of Turkey’s violation of their sovereignty.” For the Greeks and Greek Cypriots, the latter of whom have seen decades of Turkish occupation, discrimination, and desecration of churches, it is long past time for Western Europe end the Turkish threat.
The Turkish president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, on Saturday warned his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, “not to mess” with Turkey, as tensions between the Nato allies escalated.
