Last Autumn a pan-European nationalist party called the European Alliance for Freedom was formed. Recently, it was granted formal recognition by the European Parliament.

The UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom is its chairman; Franz Obermayr, from the Austrian FPÖ (Freedom Party of Austria) is its vice-chairman. It also includes other MEPs from the Austrian FPÖ, the Flemish nationalists Vlaams Belang, the Sweden Democrats, the Bürger in Wut (Enraged Citizens) from Germany, the Order and Justice party from Lithuania. It seems they have rejected Jobbik as a member of the alliance for being too extreme, although Krisztina Morvai, who is on the Jobbik list, has joined on an individual basis.

The headquarters of the alliance, appropriately enough, is in Malta, where the Muslim advance was stopped at a crucial stage in history. Was the choice of Malta intended to indicate Counterjihad intent or was it just coincidence?

It seems that MEPs are affiliating with the Alliance for Freedom on an individual rather than party basis. The question of whether UKIP MEPs should participate in pan-European political parties is extremely controversial within UKIP.

The political platform of the Alliance for Freedom expresses the paradoxical intent behind its founding: a pan-European political party that works to strengthen and support a Europe of free nation-states:
In the understanding that ‘a single European people’ – a European Demos – does not exist and can not be created through forceful or legislative means, the European Union can only naturally exist as a non-centralised, flexible, cooperation framework where free European peoples coordinate their efforts towards their mutual benefit in accordance with mutually agreed common standards.

This framework alone ensures the preservation of constitutional democracy in Europe, where democratic and free society can flourish diversely within a European family of free nations.

Pro-EU ideologues have been promoting the concept of EU political parties as a way to cement loyalty to the EU and engage popular interest in EU affairs. It strikes me that it offers excellent potential for the Counterjihad movement, however. The fact is that there are only two major issues that have the potential to unite people on a pan-European basis. The first is opposition to the European Union itself; the second is opposition to Islam.

So the Euro-fantasists are almost certainly deluding themselves if they think this pan-European party concept will work to their benefit. The opposite is much more likely to be true.
