ANKARA (Reuters) - The author of 'The Clash of Civilisations', the best-seller which predicts conflict between the West and the Islamic world, urged Turkey on Tuesday to turn its back on Europe and look to its Muslim neighbours.
Speaking on CNN Turk during a visit to Istanbul, a city which physically bridges Europe and Asia, Samuel Huntington said Turkey's bid to join the European Union was doomed to fail.
