Last week, the winner of the Turkish election under the moderate Islamic flag, Mr. Recep Erdogan (who despite being the leader of the winning party in Turkey has no official capacity because he was “democratically” deprived of his political rights for having recited in public a …religious poem!) visited Strasbourg and set forward both the Commission and the Parliament that must grant a date to his country to start negotiations for its entry to the Union. I cannot understand why, while Turkey did not meet any of the Copenhagen criteria (which explains why it was not given a date as yet) the Union should be giving to the Turkish Islamic government what it refused to the secular government. Just because Mr. Recep Erdogan threatened that if Turkey does not get a date it will not agree to discuss the UN plan for Cyprus and will not give the green light to the European Army? (715)
