It seems there are some in France who are re-thinking this Eurabia idea. From Dunya Online, “French deputies argue against Turkey’s EU membership bid,” with thanks to Two Stellas.
Looking towards France’s May 29 referendum on the European Union Constitution, a group of 25 French deputies yesterday published an opinion piece in French daily Le Figaro critical of Turkey.
The piece entitled, “How could we accept those who say: Our minarets are our bayonets,” urged the French public to reject Turkey’s EU membership in favor of a “special partnership” arrangement. The title refers to a poem publicly recited seven years ago by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, before he became prime minister and disavowed a number of his earlier views.
