Those Euro jerks have once again irked the Turks. Let’s hope the Euros don’t cave in to intimidation. From Turkishpress.com, with thanks to Fjordman:
LONDON – Turkey will ditch talks to join the European Union if the bloc proposes new conditions or anything less than full membership, Foreign Minister Abdullah Gul was quoted as saying in a magazine on Friday.
Ankara is set to begin EU membership negotiations on October 3 but complications have been thrown up by its refusal to recognise the Cypriot government.
It’s too bad the EU doesn’t say anything about the persecution of Christians in Turkey.
