If Cyprus Is “EU Outpost” Israel Protects “EU Outpost"
By Mark Langfan

In today’s A7 Article “Great Concern in Cyprus over ISIS Advances in Lebanon” “Cyprus FM says terrorist groups on the shores of the Mediterranean would create an “immediate danger” to the safety of Cyprus.” I reported on the Cyprus Foreign Minister’s concern about a few jihadists fighting in Lebanon. Here I will analyze the Foreign Minister’s statements through the prism of Israel’s strategic value to Europe, NATO, and the United State of America:
It was reported in the Famagusta Gazette, that Cyprus FM Loannis Kasoulides had expressed “great concern” about developments in Lebanon, where there is an immediate risk for Cyprus if ISIS or Jihadist terrorists advanced to the shores of the Mediterranean.” While imagine, if Hamas and Iran achieved their goal of eradicating Israel, Cyprus wouldn’t face just IS with Israel, but would face an entire Islamic Levant State with 210 Million Muslims without Israel!

FM Kasoulides also “stressed that due to its geographical position, the Republic of Cyprus is at the forefront and is the outpost of the EU in this turbulent region.” If Cyprus is the “forefront and the outpost of the EU,” then Israel is ahead of the “forefront,” and in fact, Israel is protecting the “EU outpost” in this “turbulent region.”

Therefore, for Cyprus, “the possibility is there” that a West Bank Palestinian State would be the end of Israel, and, therefore, “the possibility is there” that it would also most certainly be the end of Cyprus.
