Turkey never was part of the West; it cannot not and does not know how

Reader comment on item: Is Turkey Leaving the West?

Submitted by NuritG (United States), Feb 6, 2013 at 17:18

The road for Turkey to be accepted as a member in the European Union ended up to be way too long for Turkey Islamic tendency, so its elite chose the easier road, to be nasty, anti-Israel, and collaborates with Islamonazis. In my opinion Turkey never was part of the West only pretended to be and perhaps wanted to be but failed.
