We do not want any European immigration

Reader comment on item: Is Turkey Going Islamist?
in response to reader comment: Turkophobia does not exist

I came through your article, nowadays we are suffering from the migration of retired people from europe in hunderdes of thousands, who because of expensive life in europe migrate to turkey, this is the reverse of migration. in the past young and working age and dynamic population migrated to europe from turkey. these people contributed economic development in western europe. but the old migrant who are coming to turkey will bring problems to society and health insurance system. we are not hostile to any body, any race but this problem must be seen 2 sided.

It really does not matter if all of us are black, but i want to draw your attention. you said "if all of them dark" as a general understanding. I have to say Turks are whiter than italians, where you live , in general. But again it does not mean anything, i remind this just because of your wrong conception.
