Column In Turkish Pro-Government Daily: Islam Must Stop Western Civilization, Zionists May Be Erased From History

In a July 8, 2019 column titled "Stopping Western Civilization"[1] published in the Turkish pro-government Milli Gazete daily, Turkish columnist Mehmed Şevket Eygi asked readers: "Can we allow Western civilization to destroy the world and humanity?" He said that the West was "a civilization not of peace, but of war" and that it was "colonialist, imperialist, extremely capitalist, selfish, and hedonist." He warned that "if the West is not blocked, if no one hits the breaks, humanity will collapse. The religion of Islam and the Muslim world will do this service of blocking and hitting the breaks. In one way or another." He further said that "the imperialist Zionists want to take the world under the domination of Israel by starting a civil war between Muslims and Christians in Europe. If this war does not happen as they want it to, they may be erased from history."

Following are translated excerpts from Eygi's column.

"The West Is Colonialist, Imperialist, Extremely Capitalist, Selfish, And Hedonist"

"Can we allow Western civilization to destroy the world and humanity?... What has this civilization done? What is it doing? It is making and destroying. It did many things and destroyed them in the first two world wars. It is bringing the world and humanity to the third big war, and this time no stone will remain on top of another, nor will a head remain on a torso, there will be a return to the stone age. If we allow the West to do this, we will be committing suicide together with the West. The West advanced very far in the sciences and produced atomic bombs and nuclear weapons. Today there are enough nuclear weapons stored to kill humanity not one time, but a few thousand times...

"The West has ruined the ecological balance of the world. As the ices melt, water will come flood the shores, and hundreds of millions of people will be made miserable. Western civilization is a strong, superior civilization but it has a structure that does not obey creation, the world, and human dimensions. Western civilization has broken off from wisdom, from good sense. Western civilization is a civilization not of peace, but of war. The West is colonialist, imperialist, extremely capitalist, selfish, and hedonist. The West will not leave the Islamic world, which has a population of one and a half billion, alone to lead a life suitable for its religion and its civilization. The West sees democracy as a fundamental requirement not open to discussion, but does not recognize this right for Muslims."

"The Religion Of Islam And The Muslim World Will Do This Service Of Blocking [The West] And Hitting The Breaks, In One Way Or Another"

"Ninety percent of the wealth of the people of the West are in the hands of 100 families, people, and institutions. Most of the West has fallen into the clutches of atheism. If the West is not blocked, if no one hits the breaks, humanity will collapse. The religion of Islam and the Muslim world will do this service of blocking and hitting the breaks. In one way or another. The West has broken its bonds with the Creator. Wouldn't it have been good if the First World War had been prevented? Wouldn't it have been good if the Second World War had been prevented? Unfortunately, they happened, and caused great catastrophes, destruction, and slaughter. The third world war has not broken out yet. We have the chance to stop it. Only Islam and Muslims can do this...

"Let's see: Will Islam will be able to stop Western civilization? The imperialist Zionists want to take the world under the domination of Israel by starting a civil war between Muslims and Christians in Europe. If this war does not happen as they want it to, they may be erased from history. Laicism and secularization, meaning separating religion from the world, are the bridge to irreligiousness and atheism. The enemies of Islam, since they understand that they cannot erase Islam and the ummah entirely, want to produce a new squeaky-clean, moderate, and reformed Islam that is humanism or an ideology of people, that is Islam only in name..."
