Will the Islamic Republic of Turkey join the EU?

Reader comment on item: Crisis in Turkey

Submitted by Susan (United States), Mar 3, 2010 at 23:14

I don't know how serious the Eurocrats are about allowing Turkey to join the EU but if the mass immigration of Muslims to Europe is any indicator, they will welcome Turkey with open arms and finalize the Islamization of Europe. Since the EU demands civilian control of the armed forces, the Islamists have all the reason they need to terminate the independence of the military. It appears that the demise of secular Turkey is only a matter of time.
