BERLIN – A majority of Germans say Turkey should be allowed to join the European Union and view the country’s Moslem faith as less of a concern than rule of law issues, a poll released Friday showed.
The ARD TV survey showed 55 per cent of Germans back Turkish European Union membership over the “medium or long term” with 41 percent being opposed.
Earlier this month a different poll by the Emnid Agency showed the exact opposite with 57 percent saying “no” to Turkey joining the EU and just 34 percent in favour.
Interestingly, the new ARD poll shows 25 percent of Germans naming Islam as a concern linked to Turkish EU membership, while 27 percent said their main worry was Turkey’s adherence to rule of law.
Which law doesn’t seem to be a concern.
