Dear John,

EU citizens must think very carefully.Their decisions will deeply affect the whole world. Today USA dominates the world. We all know that they are acting according only to their imperialist interests.Yes USA is not an evil neither Mr Bush is. But they are a real threat for the world. Today it is to their interests to show the world that İslam is a threat to the west and it is invading the world like a microb.But can I ask. Why did Americans invade Irak?where are the mass destruction weapons? USA need not to take any approval from nobody.they know the best they choose the country and they invade it or punish it and they can commit war crimes everyday and they can find the reasons for everything.yes they want us to believe that ırakis are Americas old historic friends that they invaded there to bring happiness and democracy to arabs.This is it, so simple.You have no chance to answer.

Are you sure that so called islamic terrorists are doing terror for İslam really.What does my country Turkey or the other muslim countries gain from terrorism .Just tell me one advantage we get from this. We lose tourists, no western investment comes,we cant develop, no human rights, we stay poor, we cant join to EU, we are hated people, so why should we approve terrorism?

How can you say that we are approving terrorism by staying silent. Where are the terrorists.There are few or no İslamic terrorists in Turkey. We are not a trade mark in islamic terrorism, we are more famous in drug and human and women smuggling to EU by kurdish turks.How can I fight against to an underground terrorist crime organization .what do you expect from us. İf you want me to change my religion to please you I wont. İstanbul is full of huge and marvellous mosques and İslam is my culture.

You may fall into this American trap that islam orders invasion of west. Such a silly, rubbish argument that few bunch of terrorists are claiming so. You may keep on with racist attitudes trying to stay free of islamic microbs. With your old populations you may keep your race clean and pure. EU Christian states union may stay obeying USA for ever. İn 30 years you will fall behind economically and politically countries like China,İndia,even Turkey. I wonder if your christian brother or partner USA will be with you then. Because USA will not fall behind.They know to play the game very well.

Now I know what americans will say.that I am a typical muslim full of hate to USA. No I feel no hate to USA. İf Turkey was the only super power today we probably would be worse. World needs a balancing second super power.so that America cant stay alone playing with the world.This challenging power can be China or EU.

So we want to see strong, courageous EU (with or without Turkey) for the sake of world peace which can take the risks to be able to achieve its goals. but this cant happen with short sighted old EU people and faschist and racist leaders like Sarkozy and Merkel. When france learn to solve its racial problems like england does we can have more hope for future.Today everything is foggy. Lets see what future will bring.....
