please oya save them history from us, like the ottoman empire has nothing to do with turkey so does the emperialist europe has nothing to do with the european union today.

the history of europe is not an issue here that turkey is an ally or a full member of the european union?

it is a very low remark of yours and there are a lot turks like you who points out the, emperialist europe to set europe in bad daylight. the union does not need turkey, second, turkeys culture and humans arent eurpean so why you want to join the union? it is crystal clear for the europeans that turkey and its citizens are playing a problem role in europe. thats the turkish lifestyle to be a problem over here in europe and to be a superman in the middle east and central asia.

so let us be, leave us alone!
