Talk about terrorism? Terrorism is a military tactic. Europe (and the West) came under threat from the moment they opened up their borders to Muslim immigrants. Now, there are 20 million Muslims in Europe, and we already have huge problems. Can you imagine what is going to happen if Turkey joins the European Union? That will mean 70 million new Muslims in Europe. Not all of them will be terrorists, but the fact that 99% of Turks are Muslims is already a problem.

We can do nothing about illegal immigrants from Muslim countries. Too many human right legislations. Well, we can send them back, or we can try. We can make their lives more difficult. But, with Turkey, all we need to do is say "no". I am going to write to my local MEP (Member of the European Parliament) and ask him to say "no" to Turkey in the European Union. The link between Turkey and terrorism is not obvious, but it does exist. The Grey Wolves? Anyway, we already have hundreds of thousands of North-African and Turkish Muslims who are entering Europe. Of course, we need to get much tougher of Muslim immigration in general.

However, saying "no" to Turkey in the European Union is a European emergency. It is as important as stopping Muslim immigration. Indeed, the two issues are related. Immigration from Muslim North-Africa is a separate topic for a separate time. As far as Turkey is concerned, write to your local MEP, and ask him/ her to say "no" to Turkey.
