Turkey warns of terror wave if EU membership is rejected
EU Observer ^ | Dec 13 2004 | Lisbeth Kirk

Posted on 12/14/2004 10:10:42 PM PST by SunkenCiv

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned European Union leaders that violence from Islamic extremists could escalate if the EU rejects Turkey as a member... Turkey signed the association agreement for EU membership in 1963 and it is expected that a two-day EU summit this week will finally decide to begin formal membership talks, probably in the second half of next year... Taking Turkey’s 69 million, mainly Muslim, population into the Union is widely disputed... In Germany, leader of the Christian Social Union Edmund Stoiber told the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung that his party in government would do what it takes to prevent Turkey from becoming a full member of the EU. There is also opposition in other countries. A majority of Danes would much rather see Ukraine as an EU member than Turkey... Turkey has rejected a request from the European Commission to recognise Cyprus ahead of this week’s decision on Turkey’s EU application. The Greek Cypriots, for their part, have threatened to veto Turkish EU membership. The Turks claim Greek Cypriots do not deserve recognition after they rejected a United Nations plan for the unification of Cyprus, which Turkish Cypriots supported.

Isn't that a great way to demonstrate to Europe that you are fit to become part of the Union? Essentially threaten them with terrorism if they refuse.

Sounds like a reason to keep them out, not let them in. Why invite a long future of extortion by letting them in 'the family?'

I think we learned all we needed to know about the Turks in Feb 2003, when they refused the northern front.


When they needed our shelter from the Soviets, they were cooperative NATO allies. But when it is American v. Muslim, they are Muslims first and nothing else.

===

muslim violence could escalate if Jews continue to breathe.
muslim violence could escalate if America remains Christian.
muslim violence could escalate if Israel continues to exist.
muslim violence could escalate if Bush is president.
muslim violence could escalate if the suns shines.
muslim violence could escalate if tomorrow is the day after today.
muslim violence could escalate if hydrogen exists in the universe.

But alas I thought Europe had not racial problems. I thought Europe invited everyone in! I thought that Europe said it was light years ahead of the USA regarding muslim problems!


Hmmm, Can I sell Germany A quit claim deed to the Brooklyn Bridge? What about a quit claim deed to the Statue of Liberty?

Everything I needed to know about islam I learned on 9/11 and on 9/12 watching the palestinians celebrate the death of Americans on 9/11!

Thanks for the post. This is not a surprise,and denying Turkey entrance into the EU might start a chain of events that will stretch from Turkey to Albania and through the Balkans. It's anyone's guess on what Turkey's military will do if the situation spins out of control.

650,000 in the Turkish military -- the second largest armed forces in Europe, after Russia's, and larger than Germany's and France's combined. Turkey's isn't as well equipped, but...

Indeed, that is grounds for keeping Turkey out of the EU. If the EU admits Turkey, terrorists with a Turkey passport will have free reign to travel through the EU, wreaking havoc. It's also not in the best interests of the US to have Turkey in the EU in that situation.

I was waiting for this. Do the Euro-twits know what they are doing, putting Turkey through the mill with the Cyprus issue and the Armenian genocide issue? Did they think Turkey would be a meek and submissive supplicant?

Now they ride the tiger and ponder how they will get off--their idiot enthusiasms for "soft power" are revealed as pathetic illusion.

It is true, the only possible response is to shut down all negotiations immediately, indefinitely suspend the process--but can the weasels possibly stir up the courage to do the right thing?

Nervously, they look over their shoulders to see if the Americans are there behind them, backing them up as always--and guess what they see.
