‘EU must stop Turkey’s support of Islamic aggression against Armenia’

The foreign policy spokesman for the Vienna FPÖ, Leo Kohlbauer, expects the European Union to intervene in Azerbaijan's armed attack on Armenia. The Turkish despot Erdogan in particular must be disciplined and sanctioned by the EU if he does not immediately stop his support for Azerbaijan, he said.

    “Turkey obviously sees a new opportunity here to destroy the Armenians they hate,” said Kohlbauer, recalling the discussion about recognizing the massacre of the Ottoman Empire against the Armenians in 1915-16 as ‘genocide’.

    Kohlbauer sees the aggression of Islamic Azerbaijan as a new attempt to Islamize the region – Christian Armenia is a logical victim here and Erdogan’s support is not surprising. “The same claims to power that Erdogan makes here in the west also apply in the east. Turkey and political Islam – that is a highly dangerous combination,” said Kohlbauer and called on the EU to take immediate action to save lives and avoid suffering.

    The EU must now step in and mediate between the conflicting parties on the one hand, but on the other hand immediately force the Turkish dictator to give up his interference under threat of severe sanctions.

    “If Erdogan wants to show Europe how determined and powerful he is, Europe must now show Erdogan that it is more determined and powerful. Too often we have given in to the sensitivities of Turkey,” added Kohlbauer. “Turkey tries to create Turkish conditions wherever there are Turks. It is up to us to make it clear to them that there are no Turkish rules outside Turkey,” concluded Kohlbauer.

      Merkel pays, Erdo slays.

        For years Erdogan has been able to threaten Germany, and Europe, into paying him ransom and roll over as he foists his neo-Ottoman agenda on the EU and its member states. Not only does he break agreements to limit illegal migration, but he also has weaponized the Turkish “guest worker” communities in Germany that he can use to his advantage should the need arise. Merkel and her allies in Brussels have done nothing to push back against this bullying.
