Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan received a hero’s welcome when he arrived in Hungary on Monday. The radical Islamic dictator has called for third-world Muslim refugees to overrun the West, but has become allies with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban over mutual disdain at the European Union.
Orban congratulated Erdogan after he won re-election back in July and even traveled to Ankara to watch the inauguration ceremony. Orban is interested in moving toward “illiberalism” as the new model that will stabilize the West and sees Erdogan as a crucial partner in that fight.
“Turkey’s stability is the guarantee of our security,” he said during a joint press conference with Erdogan, adding that Europe should prioritize “strategic cooperation with Turkey, at all costs.”
Turkey and Hungary are growing ever closer as both countries become more infuriated with the EU. Turkey has soured on Germany in particular after they criticized a Turkish crackdown against dissent following the attempted 2016 coup against Erdogan. Hungary has become the pariah of the EU due to their hardline stance against third-world migrants as well as expelling George Soros’ network from his country.
“Germany, you have no relation whatsoever to democracy and you should know that your current actions are no different to those of the Nazi period,” Erdogan said about Germany last year. “When we say that, they get disturbed. Why are you disturbed?”
But Orban should be extremely cautious about allying with Erdogan, as the Islamic dictator ultimately wants Europe to be destroyed and overrun with Muslims from the third world. A short-term alliance of convenience is all that is tenable.
“That mindset is taking Europe to the cliff. You have begun to collapse Europe. You are dragging Europe into the abyss. Holy wars will soon begin in Europe,” Erdogan said of the right-wing populism that is rising throughout Europe in response to the Muslim threat.
Erdogan also urged that Muslims not assimilate in Europe while instead working to gain control and increase their demographic advantages.
“Have not just three but five children,” he said to his Muslim brothers in Europe. “The place in which you are living and working is now your homeland and new motherland. Stake a claim to it. Open more businesses, enroll your children in better schools, make your family live in better neighborhoods, drive the best cars, live in the most beautiful houses.”
Trusting a snake like Erdogan could have dire consequences for Orban and other nationalist leaders in Europe if they do not keep him at arm’s length.
