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?
If Turkey is in the EU, closing the door to Moslem immigrants will be impossible. Pope Benedict XVI is absolutely right about Turkey.
I can see your ignorance has brought you peace. You people in Europe are so stupid that you actually believed those Kurds when they sought asylum in your countries to eat up your jobs and your tax money. All they had to say was that the Turks were kicking their bums and the doors to wealth were opened to them. The Kurds are not persecuted for being Kurds. Its just that some of them live in less developed regions of the country. The government has made huge mistakes, but similar conditions are found in some parts of the west, north and south of the country too. The northern Iraqi Kurds you are talking about are the PKK, an international terrorist organization which has caused the deaths of over 30,000 people over the last 15 years and is funded by extortion, drug smuggling and human trafficing. Those people you have heard about over the past several years on news who have drowned in a sunken ship, been abandoned and straved in the middle of the MEditerranian Sea etc. paid the PKK most, if not all, of their life savings with the hope of a better life.
