The biggest threat to the stability of Europe is Vladamir Putin's Russia, not the Greek farce played out in real-time last week for the domestic political sensibilities of 19 eurozone member states.

In fact, a case could be made that the Greek situation is not even the second biggest threat: Isis, the Islamic fundamentalist group, last week turned red with blood the Mediterranean, 220 miles south of Italy. The terror organisation seeks to give the lie to what the late Libyan leader, Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, once said - that Islam would conquer Europe without even firing a shot (whatever about severing a head).
