Mr Obama said Western nations should engage with the Muslim world US President Barack Obama has arrived in Turkey on a two-day visit, after giving his support to Ankara's efforts to join the European Union.

Our Muslim President serving the Islamist cause . . .
Shut the hell up Obama and butt out. He thinks he runs the world now.
Turkey is an important US ally by saying that they should be part of the EU he’s playing to their position and helping keep them on our side. Of course he knows full well that France, Germany and an number of other EU countries will never allow Turkey into the EU.
The Turkish economy doesn’t meet the requirements for admission and they already have a problem with Muslim population growth in Europe. If they let Turkey into the EU they lose control of their boarders and workforces. Also Turkey’s boarders are totally porous to Islamic terrorists giving them a superhighway into the heart of the EU.
The libs always tell us to worry about the “ugly American” image abroad.
Obama “apologizes” for the “mistakes” of America.
Then, Obama visits a Muslim country and tells them that those evil Western European countries should let Turkey join their club?
A bit provincial.
A bit Imperial.
Who the hell does this Sarkozy think he is defying the will of "The One".
This twit had to go.
First bowing on bent knee to the Saudi despot after giving the Queen of England a slap on the back and high five. Now this.
What an embarrassment.
Please, impeach him or remove him from office before he screws up too much more.
This is true. Besides Turkey (like some EU members) is adamantly opposed to any acknowledgment of Europe’s Christian heritage being included in the EU Constitution.
8 years destroying America and kissing up to the world and obamma lamma ding dong will run the U.N by world acclimation.
Not to be deterred, he will offer statehood to Turkey.
It’s a sad day for America when the French President is more Amerian than our own.
Obama you are a traitor and a disgrace to the the office your swore an oath to.
You will never be known as the first BLACK president, but rather the first marXist, islamic facist president. The first US president that the whole world could see through.
Idiot you are.
In reply, the E.U. unanimously voted to back the admission of the provinces of Republic of Mexico as the 51st to the 60th states of the United States of America ..... They then reconvened to back the admission of Uzbekistan as the 61st state.
This is the same Turkey that pulled the rug out from under us when we first invaded Iraq?
Whose side is Obama on?
Too bad we couldn’t have a good first black president
Exactly! Some ally!
Yes it would send a strong signal to the muslim world - the wrong signal.
This, ahhh .... gentleman—yes, that’s it, gentleman—is likely to be the first American president who isn’t, if not already, then at a future moment, the “leader of the free world.”
Obama worries a lot about Muslims, One could almost believe he is one.
hussein obama (or whatever the pos’s name truly is)
Read his book... he is on islam’s side... always.
Exactly. And which even now is sinking into the islamofascist cesspool.
Turkey's chance for salvation has come and gone. From here on out it's all downhill and into the muck.
