The European Union Still Eludes a Turkey


Mars

Recommended Posts

And Turkey isn't going to become an Islamic republic, no more than Germany is going to turn into a Christian theocracy following a Christian Democracy victory in elections.

Which is basically true, but in Germany the opposition to Turkey precisely comes from the Christian Democrats and Christian Socialist parties. It was Edmund Stoiber of the Christian Socialist who coined the (in)famous phrase of : "Turkey... does not have occidental Christian traditions .. therefore does not fit into the European Union".

This is not a bad Idea. Get Turkey and Israel into EU. This way there might be diserved peace in Israel and arround.

Turkey and Israel are already playing in European sports so why not get them both in?

No I am not from Turkey but it is sad to see how country is blasted merely for it's religion although other countries with less money and more kriminality are alowed to join the EU.

Btw. EU sucks. Ask the avarage German, Britt,....

Yeah its quite a popular vacation spot, I've always heard the people over there are really friendly. As for Turkey joining the EU, i'm against it. If Turkey joins the EU, how can we say no to morocco later on because i'm sure they'll want to join as well. So where will it end? We'll prolly end up with a Euro-Arabian Union.

What your Girlfriend says is right, loads of Brits go there on holiday but theres a big difference between going on holiday for two weeks and sampling the culture and letting Turkey join the EU, you bet your bottom dollar thousands will all heading to the UK if they're let in, its like when the new eastern European countries joined in 2004 the British government estimated 25,000 to 50,000 people would come to the UK, but the true figure turned out to be 427,095, The United Kingdom is losing its identity, soon we wont have to go on Holiday we'll just walk down the road,

Nope, Geographically, religiously, and historically has been Middle Eastern. Its true Turkey was inhabited by Indo-Europeans but that is long over. Mongols and Arabs moved into the land and invaded (changing laws to more of their own kind). Turkey, IMO should establish a Kurdish homeland and perhaps a part of Turkey should go to Armenia ( a lot of it was their land).

Well you cant change Turkeys country borders just because you have seen to many movies. Turks have been in Anatolia for hundreds of years and they have defended the lands ever since, so Im pretty convinced its Turkish homelands now. Kurds are minorities in Turkey, almost every country has minorities but that doesnt mean every ethnic group should get its own land.
