Turkish PM Davutoglu In Switzerland: "I Kiss The Foreheads Of My Brothers Who Carried The Tekbir To Zurich"; "Islam Is Europe's Indigenous Religion"; "Turkey Is The Cure For Europe"; "No One Will Be Able To Stop" The Rise Of Islam In Europe"(MEMRI).
While in Switzerland for the World Economic Forum in Davos, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu visited Zurich to speak to a large gathering of Turks living in Europe:
"I am saying this here from Zurich. Islam is Europe's indigenous religion, and will continue to be so. Despite the roadblocks, prejudices and many provocations, Turkey will continue to walk on the road to EU membership. We will walk this road mainly for you [Turks in Europe]. Since you represent our culture, our traditions, our language and our religion here, and since we have brothers, [i.e.] the 45 million Muslims here [in Europe], Turkey will be part of Europe. We will never beg or make special requests; we will enter with honor, with our heads high. We will enter the EU with our language, our traditions, and our religion [Islam]. You live proudly with our culture in Europe. Would we ever sacrifice one iota of that culture? With Allah's grace, we will never bow our heads. We are the grandchildren of the heroes who fought at Gallipoli, who never bowed their heads.
"In 2002, when we [AKP] came to power, they [the EU] said that Turkey was too poor, too weak a country, that would become a burden on Europe. Thank Allah, today Turkey is the rising power of the world, the presiding member of the G20. We want nothing from them. We reached this point with our sweat, and thanks to the taxes paid by our people, thanks to our moral and hardworking people. May Allah never make us need anything from anyone.
"And now the same [European] circles are saying that we are too strong to be accepted. So strong that we would change the character of Europe, and occupy one fourth of the European Parliament. I say from here now: 'We are not a burden on Europe. Turkey is the cure for Europe!' Turkey is the cure for their disease of racism. We are the cure to their economic slowdown, we are the cure to their loss of power.
"I again call this out from Zurich: Islam is Europe's indigenous religion, and it will continue to be its indigenous religion. From Andalusia to the Ottomans, and, half a century ago with the holy march of our people who came here from every corner of Anatolia.
The sound of the azan [Islamic call to prayer], brought by these heroes to Europe, the domes of the mosques with which they dotted this continent, will all be protected. We will continue to fight against all the hands that reach out to harm them [the mosques]. I kiss the foreheads of my brothers who carried the tekbir [i.e. the call "Allahu Akbar"] to Zurich.
May Allah bless those who raised you. Blessed be those who came here with just a suitcase, in poverty, but with rich hearts filled with their faith [Islam]. How holy those people were, who came and sowed the seeds here, which will, with Allah's help, continue to grow into a huge tree of justice in the center of Europe. No one will be able to stop this." Hmmm.......Anyone one still doubting on the 'Caliph of the Muslim Brotherhood's plans for Europe?.Read the full story here.
