hoÞ geldInIz (welcome) Turkey

I am happy to report that a deal has been struck with Turkey that allows to join the EU as a full member sometime in the next decade. I had been waiting for this announcement and had been quite worried about the outcome. I think it would have been unpardonable if Europe had rebuffed this proud and historic country which played an important part of European history. If you think about it the capital of the eastern Roman Empire was in Constantinople (Istanbul)! Also I find it very positive that Europe will have a Muslim country in its midst. Maybe it will help break the icy vice with which the Christian church daily oppresses the European masses.

Thus: hoÞ geldInIz (welcome) Turkey
