Donald Trump has said the North Atlantic Treaty Alliance is "obsolete" and that it isn’t. His visit to NATO headquarters should establish which is right.

That will not be determined simply by whether our allies agree to deliver on promises to increase defense spending and join in defeating the Islamic State. Important as these topics are, the future of the alliance actually depends on its reckoning with a largely unacknowledged elephant in the room.

The attack in Manchester, England underscores that Europe is under assault from jihadist enemies within. Large numbers of them have been sent there by Islamist Turkey, a NATO ally increasingly in name only. If that Trojan horse is allowed to remain — and do damage — inside the alliance, NATO will inevitably become worse than obsolete. It will be a vehicle for intensifying the Shariahsupremacists’ take-down of the free world
