I know for sure that Turkey should be kept out of the EU.

I prefer Turkey than some EU members.

Grzegorz, until we get that EU-constitution back in the trash bin where it belongs, Turkey should be kept out. There're few benefits and a very high risk that Turkey would have a bad influence, especially now, when the government party has turned towards a more islamic-friendly direction.

I just came back from Turkey.. its a lovely place. they are already using the Euro and most people want entry to the EU. Personally I dont want them in as I wont get my cheap duty free any more :) Other than that, I have no problem with it. I came across some Turks who know some Polish from meeting Polish tourists there.

Blimey. They've hidden that one well in the new EU Constitution or whatever name they are calling it now.

i think turks are good chance for poland to get rid off nationalistic plans of that fukin nazi nation, the germans
i hope someday turks will grow enought to block german antiPolish ideas like exile-museum (now exiles later idea of pra polish western lands going back to germany) north gaspipe and heresy like that

it is polish national interest so turks could join european union so more of them could fload germany
Good luck for all of u my friends, great nation of turks!

I keep seeing stuff about Turkish men and skype.
Has anyone asked the question 'Does Skype mean something dodgy in the Turkish language that encourages all the dodgy people to do dodgy things?'

I don't agree with the people who says that Turkey is an islamic country.Firstly, It is not an islamic country.It's people are just muslims.Turkey is not like Iran,Iraq,Syria,Arabia.Secondly,Turkey is newly industrilized country and even a developed country.Therefore It can join the European Union.It's economy is the 15th biggest economy in the world.In recent years Turkey has been developed and still developing.Go to Istanbul,Ankara,Izmir(Major cities in Turkey) are very modern like European countries.Visit there and see with your own eyes.I am sure you will be impressed when you see Turkey.

I agree with aliselim. The bad reputation of Turkey is changing over the years I suppose but unfortunately,there are also many people who still think that Turkey is an Islamic country like Iran,Iraq...(naniii,ayooo,vununuuu :)

I agree with Sinan.Besides,Turkey didn't occupy Cyprus.It had just helped Turks who were under Greek pressure.

Turkish practice of Islam has always tended toward the more moderate and more sensible in the cities at least.
However, Turkey still falls far behind EU standards on freedom of religion and there's no indication that the country as a whole understands the European conception of freedom of religion or would agree to it, if they did.

Among other things it means:

- freedom to convert from any religion to any religion (and back again as many times as a person wants)
- freedom to marry with no regard to religion (for both men and women)
- freedom to proselytize
- freedom to publicly criticize features of another religion
- freedom to insult religion
- freedom to not practice _any_ religion

Even in the current EU it's hard for all member states to fully live up to these ideals and something tells me it will be harder for Turkish people (especially the more rural and/or poor segments of the population).

You are wrong Brentthruster.Turkey is very modern country and more developed tahn some other European Countries.Turkey is a country which is composed of modern muslims.We are also a european country.

Turkey is very modern and the muslims in Turkey are much different from those of other islamic countries as many Turks have yugoslavian routes. Most of the muslim Turks I know don't even wear hijabs and aren't super religious. Turkey is very traditional yet liberal at the same time.

People who dislike Turkey has always showed Turkey in a bad situation.They have showed It's bad parts.That's why you think that Turkey can not join European Union.Look I am telling the truth.Some Europeans don't like Turkey because of the Ottoman Empire.Ottomans Made an huge invasion.They take few European parts and Middle East parts.They are afraid of Turks would invade Europe as they did.However we didn't take any people's freedom.If we would do the world's language would be Turkish.YES THESE ARE THE TRUTHS TURKS DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT THESE KIND OF CONVERSATIONS BUT YOU SAY STUPID THINGS ABOUT TURKEY AND DON'T NOW ANYTHING ABOUT TURKEY BECAUSE OF YOUR IGNORANCE...

Sinan say something=D

Can'T say nothin' dude..! The blame is on the foreign press, public opinion and our prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who gives a negative influence about Turkey.
