"Allah has a different plan…"

“The Europeans believe that Muslims came to Europe only to make money. But Allah has a different plan.”

He forgot to mention that Allah is also the “best of schemers…”


Necmettin Erbakan, the former radical Islamist Prime Minister of Turkey, said this at the Assembly of Turkish radical Islamic group Milli Görus in April 2001 about the Islamization of Europe by Muslim immigration: “The Europeans believe that Muslims came to Europe only to make money. But Allah has a different plan.”

Update to an earlier article:

Turks do not want a Jew or a kafir as neighbors

Gates of Vienna

Lets rephrase this:

Why would you want a Turkish Moslem as a neighbor?

Turks think little of ethnic and religious dissenters. Non-Muslim minorities are not considered loyal to the country, and Turks would rather not see them in important political positions. This is what Turkish media reported, based on a survey by the Turkish research company Frekans.

Of the 1108 Turks surveyed, more than half (57 percent) indicated they do not want to live next to an atheist. Nor would a Jew (42 percent) or a Christian (35 percent) be popular to have as a neighbor. In addition, 18 percent would not under any circumstances live next to a family from abroad [i.e. immigrant].

* The whole thing, coming from a Turkish source, is deeply flawed. Fact is that the Turks have completely  wiped  out the non-Muslim minorities over the 500 years since the fall of Constantinople, which means the question is academic. Turkey, since the Armenian genocide, is now 99 % Islamic.

Nearly half of the respondents indicated that they think Jews are not loyal to the Turkish state. In Turkey there are Jewish, Armenian, and Greek citizens who were officially recognized as minorities under the Treaty of Lausanne in 1923. That treaty was a formal end to the Greek-Turkish War (1921-1922). [As consequence of this treaty, a massive population exchange between Greece and Turkey took place: 400,000 Turkish Muslims were evacuated from Greece and 1,300,000 Greek Christians were expelled from Turkey, most of those even before the treaty was signed.]

The poll also showed that 57 percent of Turkish respondents do not want non-Muslims to work in the national intelligence service, and 55 percent would rather not see them in the judiciary. This applies to a lesser extent to local positions, scientific bodies, and medical centers.
