"An EU Without Turkey will Resemble 'Medieval Europe'
Dr. Sedat LACINER
Certain groups claim that Turkey�s full membership to the European Union will profoundly damage �Europeanness� to the point that the notion of European will no longer exist. For instance in the Declaration of the �No Turkish Membership in EU� Campaign the opponents argue that Turkey is belong to the East and Islam, not Europe: �Turkey is not a European country. The Orient and the Islam are until now not really part of Europe, and we don�t want to change that.�Obviously, according to this claim, Turks are not European."
