The leader of Turkey’s Felicity Party (SP), Mustafa Kamalak, has suggested that Muslim countries unite to establish an “Islamic NATO” in the wake of recent atrocities in the Middle Eastern region.

Lending support to deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, Kamalak said: “We are with Morsi with all our hearts. But this is not enough. There should be an Islamic union. To end atrocities, Muslims should gather to form an Islamic NATO.”

Kamalak also suggested a new monetary system that would trade using an Islamic currency instead of the U.S. dollar or euro.

The SP was founded by former Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan in 2001 after its previous incarnation, the Virtue Party (FP), was banned by the Constitutional Court for anti-secularist activities. It is mainly supported by conservative Muslims.
