Turkish Prime Minister Promotes True Islam's Territorial Stake on US

As I keep saying, Muslim leaders are banking on Westerner's ignorance and gullibility when it comes to Islam. Turkey is no friend of the West, despite what some claim. What's the danger with Turkey?

Its right here in the United States. Maryland to be exact. Ironic considering our history.

WND reports:

On his visit to a new Turkish-funded mosque in Lanham, Md., Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayip Erodogan said his government chose the site because of its location in “free territory....”

He went on to say, “the largest and most striking examples of Islamic architecture in the Western hemisphere when finished in 2014....”

But those seemingly innocuous words are alarming to a number of analysts, including former Palestinian operative Walid Shoebat, who says the West doesn’t realize the significance of what Erdogan was saying.
Shoebat said Erdogan’s true mission is to claim the land for Islam, and the evidence is in his words.
“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers,” Shoebat said, quoting Erdogan.
The West is unaware that in Islam, a mosque is an embassy and Turkey is acting stealthily, which is why the project is not arousing much alarm,” Shoebat said.
Islam analyst and Atlas Shrugs blogger Pamela Geller agrees. Most Americans don’t know that the plans showcase Turkey’s long-held territorial dream, she said.
The Turks are trying to restore the glory of the Ottoman period. They may be staking a claim to be the leaders of Sunni Islam worldwide, as they were in the days of the last caliphate,” Geller said.
“Erdogan through much deception is fulfilling one of his spiritual mentor’s dreams, Sheik Maulana Nazeem Kibrisi. While Turkey paints its version of Islam to be Sufi, which the West deceitfully believes is moderate, the Sufi scholar was found in Turkish speaking with the fervor of Adolf Hitler,” Shoebat said....

Shoebat said that while the West is putting its attention on Iran’s president, Turkish leadership is filling in the gaps.
“While the West over-focused on Iran’s Ahmadinejad and his aspiration to usher in the Twelfth Imam, the West believed the myth, that Mahdism with it’s messianic aspiration was only restricted to Shia, yet, our two-decade old prediction that Turkey desired to take the realm of Islamdom has now become reality with Mahdism to soon follow,” Shoebat said.
Erdogan’s desire to fulfill Kibrisi’s dream of the ‘rise of the glorious Islam’ is not only some rhetoric by an imam who has gone mad, it is the metamorphosis of Erdogan’s Ottoman dream, which reflects Kibrisi’s Sufi spirit expressed during his victory speech,” Shoebat said.

A little bit of history would help here. This isn't the first time Muslim government officials have tried to stake its authority against the US in the name of Islam. This is very consistent with Muhammad's teaching through the quran and hadiths.

As Christopher Hitchens wrote in "Time" magazine:

America's two main diplomats at the time were John Adams in London and Jefferson in Paris. Together they called upon Ambassador Abdrahaman, the envoy of Tripoli in London, in March 1786. This dignitary mentioned a tariff of three payments--for the ransom of slaves and hostages, for cheap terms of temporary peace and for more costly terms of "perpetual peace." He did not forget to add his own commission as a percentage. Adams and Jefferson asked to know by what right he was exacting these levies. The U.S. had never menaced or quarreled with any of the Muslim powers. As Jefferson later reported to the State Department and Congress, "The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners." – p. 2

Jefferson became President in early 1801, shortly after Yusuf Karamanli, the ruler of Tripoli, unwisely issued an ultimatum to the U.S.: If it did not pay him fresh tribute, he threatened, he would declare war on America. The new Commander in Chief coolly decided to let the ultimatum expire and take the declaration of war at face value. – p. 3

Over the next four years, in what Jefferson laconically described as a "cruise," the new American Navy bombarded the harbors of Algiers, Morocco and Tunisor threatened them with bombardment--until the states gradually agreed to cease cooperating with Karamanli.
