The Turks in Turkey are humiliated by the outrageous proceedings imposed by the EU when they want to get a visa to travel to the EU countries.
Today the EU proves once more that it is quite racist towards Turkey. What follows is disgusting.
There is a law of the EU that states this: “An illegal who is arrested in an EU country must be sent back to the first EU country by which he arrived”.
An example: an illegal enters the EU territory from Spain. He is arrested in France, so he is sent back to Spain.
That law applies only to the EU members.
On the other hand, the politicians who object to Turkey’s EU membership and who sabotage the negotiations between the EU and Turkey want at the same this law to be applied to Turkey.
Isn’t it scandalous?
The EU wants absolutely to convince Turkey to accept that agreement, and it promises that the scandalous visa proceedings shamefully imposed by the EU to the Turkish citizens will be changed.
Thus the EU wants Turkey to accept that the illegals arrested on its territory who come from Turkey to be sent back to Turkey.
Turkey is not an EU member yet, so why not send them back to Greece, since the illegals enter the EU territory from Greece?
The worst is that the EU said to Turkey: “Sign that agreement, then we will change the visa proceedings”.
The EU mocks at Turkey. The EU doesn’t respect Turkey. The EU behaves as a carpet dealer.
And that trickery reminds me of the disgusting cyprus game of the EU.
Turkey said that it will not sign that agreement as long as the visa proceedings are not changed.
The EU is used to manipulating Turkey.
During the Cold War, the EU did take advantage of the military power of Turkey in order to safeguard its security.
Then the EU did desert Turkey in its struggle against the terrorism of the PKK. Furthermore, the PKK collects money in the EU with impunity in order to finance the weapons and the bombs that it uses to kill the Turks in Turkey.
Today it does blackmail Turkey about the illegals.
That is immoral.
(A Turkish journalist said: “If some countries of the EU do not do anything against the terrorists of the PKK, why do we want to enter the EU?”).
If the EU helped the poor countries to develop, there would not be so much illegals in the EU.
Turkey helps the poor countries to develop. Its economic policy respects in fact the win-win principle. As in Africa for instance.
Turkey gives a humanity lesson to the EU and to the USA.
I am strongly convinced that the objective of Turkey is still the EU membership. Turkey still does need the EU, its path has always been the European one. But that European path doesn’t prevent it from improving its ties with its neighbours such as Iran, the Arabic countries, Georgia or Russia.
Turkey is not shifting to the east, that is a lie from some lobbies which aim at making an anti-Turkey propaganda. Anyway, “shifting to the east” doesn’t mean anything at all.
But the Turkish state is suspicious towards the EU since on the one hand, several irresponsible politicians subjectively keep on objecting to Turkey’s EU perspective. In fact these politicians sabotage the negotiations process, and that is destroying the credibility of the EU, which recognized Turkey as an official EU candidate in 1999 at Helsinki and which signed in 2004 for the opening of the negotiations in 2005. All the EU states signed, and all underlined that the goal is the full EU membership, but today the EU seems to forget that.
“Voices inside my head, echoes of things that you said”
So Turkey doesn’t understand that amnesia.
On the other hand, no country really seems to object to them and especially to Mr Sarkozy.
Turkey does not understand that neither. It’s good to say: “We support Turkey”. But that is not enough. One must act.
But it opened only one.
Though Spain is a big country. Thus, why wasn’t it able to withstand to the obvious pressure of Mr Sarkozy and Greece? (Spain said a few weeks ago that owing to their pressure, it couldn’t open any chapter. And it added that Turkey is victim of discrimination from the EU).
Well Turkey doesn’t understand that situation, hence it is suspcious regarding the true intention of the EU.
France and Greece don’t represent the EU. So what’s happening?
Why aren’t Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, Portugal, Sweden, Belgium, Poland, Finland, Latvia, Bulgaria, Romania, Estonia and several more countries able to face with Mr Sarkozy and Ms Merkel?
These states do support Turkey’s EU membership. So why are Mr Sarkozy, Ms Merkel, Greece and the Greek Cypriots acting with impunity regarding Turkey? Is not the EU a democracy?
That question must be answered by the EU.
Turkey is curious.
As a Turkish citizen I am really curious and I’m also in the confusion.
Maybe that the answer is this one: “Our racism? Because you’re worth it”.
