Turkey Drifting Out of European Sphere

During peak social mood, there was serious discussion about Turkey joining the European Union. This weekend Austria shut down anti-Western mosques and kicked their imams out of the country.

ZH: "We're Going To Have To Do Something": Erdogan Warns Austrian Mosque Closures Could Lead To Religious War
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan blasted Austria's decision to close mosques and expel Turkish-backed Imams as anti-Islamic and promised a response, saying the measures announced by Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz could lead to a "war between the cross and the crescent." Erdogan's comments came a day after the Austrian government said it would expel up to 60 Turkish-funded imams and shut down seven mosques as part of a crackdown on "political Islam", leading to widespread fury in Ankara.

"These measures taken by the Austrian prime minister are, I fear, leading the world towards a war between the cross and the crescent," Erdogan said in a speech in Istanbul, suggesting that a return of the Ottoman Empire is among the many ambitious "to do" items in Erdogan's calendar: after all that was the last time the "crescent" decided to take on the "cross", and coincidentally, the Turkish ambitions reached as far as Vienna before the Hapsburgs crushed the Ottoman ascent.

...Meanwhile, other conservative European leaders praised the move, including France's Marine Le Pen and Italy's Matteo Salvini. However, even Austria's opposition parties supported the decision, with the center-left Social Democrats calling it "the first sensible thing this government has done." Though Austria's Green Party argued that it could serve as propaganda for Turkey's government.
There is always war between the cross and crescent. Christendom has been at war with Islam ever since it emerged and they will probably be at war as long as both exist. The overly maligned Crusades were a counter-attack against Muslim invasion.

Samuel Huntington was right and Francis Fukuyama was wrong. It wasn't the end of history, it was the return of history, the clash of civilizations. The final wave of rising social mood was an ideological battle between capitalism and communism. The war ended near the peak in mood and ever since history has been reasserting itself. The globalists are holdovers from the Cold War and increasingly irrelevant as history makes its return.
