It was Great Britain’s wartime leader, Winston Churchill, who noted that “An appeaser is one that feeds the crocodile, hoping it will eat him last”.
This quote is proving to be true by the appeasement yet again of Turkey’s radical Islamist President, Tayyip Erdogan, by the leaders of the European Union.
Apropos the recent news that Erdogan is shaking down the EU leaders again by threatening to open the borders and flood Europe with refugees and migrants, the predictable conclusion has been reached.
Reminiscent of Barack Obama's appeasement of the Ayatollahs', the cowardly EU leaders have caved in and agreed to pay the radical Islamic autocrat another five hundred and sixty-seven million dollars, (that’s $567,000,000), on top of the six billion+ dollars they handed over in 2016, for the same scam.
When one considers that the U.N. is pouring money into Turkey, along with individual nations and any number of refugee agencies, the Turkish tyrant is making a killing by hosting refugees and migrants.
European taxpayers can rest assured that the Turkish tyrant will be back for more when this current half a billion runs out and he needs more military hardware or money to oppress an increasingly restless domestic population.
If the EU leaders put the well-being of their people before their nation building agenda the solution is simple and cost effective. Also, it would save hard pressed EU and global taxpayers a king’s ransom (pun intended)
Following their own precedent, the U.N, in conjunction with the EU, should build an impenetrable buffer zone along the Greece/Turkey border replicating the demilitarized buffer zones they have previously built across Cyprus and the Korean peninsula.
They have the expertise, the money and most importantly they have the support of most of the European people who have had to suffer the horrific consequences of continued mass immigration into their already blighted countries.
The buffer zone would be accompanied by a naval blockade of the Aegean sea lanes between Turkey and Greece to protect the vulnerable and already devastated Greek islands.
Unfortunately, the globalist leaders of the U.N. and the EU are not in the habit of listening to or acting on the wishes of the people.
The Danegeld being paid to Erdogan is a fig leaf to give the impression they are listening to the people and actually doing something.
In line with their belief in a multi-cultural, borderless world they will carry on with their cultural replacement agenda by encouraging mass immigration into Europe from the Middle East and Africa using alternative Mediterranean routes through Malta, Italy, Spain etc. regardless of the damage and misery it causes.
As an example, Great Britain is not even in the the EU Schengen zone but despite years of promises by successive governments to reduce it, the latest figures show immigration is at the highest levels ever.
As for the refugees and economic migrants already encamped in Turkey; a solution is equally simple:
Begin with dispelling the notion that Europe and the USA are the only possible destinations for refugees and migrants especially those from the Islamic faith who are incompatible with the Judeo-Christian culture and way of life of their hosts.
Instead of transporting tens of thousands of people across the entire breadth of Turkey, Europe and the Atlantic Ocean, they should be transported south through Jordan to their spiritual home in oil rich Saudi Arabia and onward if necessary to the equally rich Islamic countries of Kuwait, Oman and the United Arab Emirates.
Alternatively, they can travel east to their co-religionists in Iran or though Nakhichevan and the Armenian corridor to the Muslim majority countries of Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and the other Muslim majority former Russian republics.
To conclude: Led by the fanatical German Europhile, Angela Merkel, EU leaders opened the borders and invited all and sundry to enter Europe with disastrous consequences for the people. This insanity led directly to Brexit and the rise of nationalist parties across the bloc.
Combined with the imminent collapse of the Eurozone economies, Brexit and the rise of nationalism has put the entire European nation building project in jeopardy and along with it the source of unlimited power for Chancellor Merkel and the EU leadership..
The Turkish tyrant, Tayyip Erdogan, has spotted this opportunity to blackmail the EU leaders by threatening to overwhelm the EU borders with hundreds of thousands of refugees and migrants unless they pony up massive sums of money.
Unless the EU leaders take drastic action as suggested above, Churchill’s crocodile will keep returning time and again until there is no money left and they themselves are devoured.
