Dear Dr. Pipes,

As you very well have proven into this article, Turkey is not Europe and the late decades Turks, even after the Ataturk's changes have remained Muslims and from the barbaric ones, whom Muslims fear as the memories from Ottoman Empire are still fresh.

Since the 80s, in Germany there were many Turks working but could not become a part of German society, they had there own Ghettos so closed, that Germans tried with many different incentives to make them leave Germany but they could not.

When we had the threat of Soviet Union Turkey having long borders with Soviet Union was a valuable NATO member, though invaded in Cyprus in 1974 and was not leaving no matter the UN resolutions.

They killed too many Greek Cypriots, they moved over 150.000,00 Turks from Anatolia to live in the northern part of Cyprus from where they had taken all properties of the Greek Cypriots who either were killed or taken in Turkey as prisoners or pushed to the southeastern part of Cyprus. They still have there over 40.000,00 soldiers as occuping forces since 1974. They have been using and still do Cyprus, for threatening the Greek Cypriots and Greece to negotiate the oil and share the AOZ of the Aegean Sea and Cyprus.

NATO's article 5 which guarrantees the defense of a member country from the attack of any other Country does not give any protection in the case a NATO Country threats or attack another. Turkey has been doing this consistently and NATO was closing eyes because of Soviet Union threat.

The last decade Turkey has taken unilateral actions towards MusIim Countries like Iran and other Middle East sensitive issues like Gaza issues without the permission of NATO. Now they have turned towards to Islam so clearly that is about time to be released from NATO as Soviet Union does not exists anymore.

Europe has the Western Civilization Culture and has too many problems with already many muslims who threaten many countries and in some years, because of the increasing numbers of new born children about 4 per wife, they will become the dominant power. Imagine now Turkey with 70 million Muslims to become a part of EU and travel and work in any European Country. Europe then will become a Muslim Country very soon. EU will never accept this.

We need to face all these problems now and not giving them any more space or being loose, before it becomes too late.

Turkey does not belong to Europe and also to NATO. Is rather a problem maker and an increasing threat than a loyal and valid member.
