Benedict XVI is absolutely right about Turkey. Allowing Turkey into the the EU would greatly facilitate even more Moslem immigration into Europe. I'm glad the good guys won at Poitiers, Lepanto, and Vienna. If Europeans want to survive ( abig "if"), they will say no to Turkey.
Current events 101, the EU nations are being swarmed by muslims, period. The Kurds, under EU protection as persecuted peoples, have been pouring into Germany for years. The Turks have had a battle front against the Northern Iraqi Kurds for many years. Who's holding whos borders?
FYI the good guys were the Turks in those days.
