on The EUmans Are Coming!, by Muhsin Omurca
Excuse me for taking up your time with my email, but I just had to say something about your article.
It seems very respectful the way you try and defend the Turks, but I do find it slightly exaggerated. And especially the suggestions you listed... they made me laugh out loud.
With all due respect for your attitude and your views, but you can’t be serious, can you?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m Turkish myself and I’d want to defend my country with all I have too... but presenting Turkey as a wonderful place is an absolute cheek.
You know just as well as I do that Turkey is still a developing country and doesn’t belong in the EU yet. Apart from that, I’m against Turkey joining the EU anyway.
But that’s not what this letter is about.
Well anyway, thanks for the entertaining article.
