The problem with this article is that Novak is avoiding the truth.
It wasn’t a “Turkish fleet”; it was a Mohammedan fleet trying to expand the Caliphate. The relevance of the Turks was only that they were at the top of the Mohammedan “food chain” at the time. Under their leadership the Mohammedans had to be turned away for the gates of Viena twice, defeated at Malta, and thrashed at Lepanto.
It is unfortunate that we lack the courage and will of the men of the 15th, 16th, and 17th Centuries who drove the Mohammedans out of Europe and kept them out.
BTTT for the truth. Some of the Lepanto links tell the truth too.
