Reader comment on item: Is Turkey Going Islamist?

Submitted by Eric Vanhove (United States), Jun 12, 2005 at 08:58

With regards to the Concerned Citizen of the EU's demographic fears and PM Erdogan's statement about having babies, it really isn't a bad piece of advice for the young European. Europe is graying appreciably, and the admonition should be coming from the leaders of the European nations... Have babies, your retirees need them!
