Too big, too poor and too Muslim
There are many good reasons for Turkey to remain forever outside the European Union, as well as good grounds for its being removed from NATO as well. The Tundra Tabloids is in firm agreement with the ten good reasons given by Dutch MP, Mr.Geert Wilders, which should give every European cause to write their law makers and demand a unified voice in rejecting Turkish membership once and for all.
Pesonally, I believe that their are far more EU and domestic law makers who hold the very same opinions as Geert Wilders and the Tundra Tabloids, But there is no need to take any risks, being in firm opposition to Turkish membership every step of the way, is the only way to ensure that it never happens. remember everyone, when it comes time to meeting with your representatives, make sure to bring it up.

Ten Times No To Turkey
Ten arguments why we should not take in the Turkish Trojan horse.
By Geert Wilders
Beginning on January I will go to Turkey as a member of a delegation of the parliamentary committee on European Affairs. My first visit to a Muslim country since the release of Fitna, now over a year and a half ago.
“They will murder you there”
In recent days I have received many e-mails: “Mr. Wilders, please do not go. They will murder you there or hand you over to Jordan.” I take the view that my security will be adequately arranged for and that the Minister of Foreign affairs, Maxime Verhagen — since he goes abroad more often than I do — will request and receive guarantees of the Turkish government that I will not be extradited.
Why do I go to Turkey? Because as an MP and political leader of virtually the largest party in the Netherlands I find it no more than reasonable to tell the Turks straight to their faces why, according to us, they should never become a member of the EU. Why the PVV the adage applies: Turkey in, Netherlands out!
I will first tell everyone that Turkey is an appreciated NATO ally and also that the PVV wants the Netherlands to maintain good relations with that country on political, military and economic fields. Both parties can benefit from this, but a good neighbor is not the same as a member of the family.
Why should Turkey not be allowed to become a member of the EU? Let me mention the ten most important arguments for this.
Firstly, Turkey is an Islamic country, most people there adhere to Islam, and the Islamic culture is dominant. The PVV does not want any expansion of the EU anyway, and especially not to include Muslim countries. For we already have far too much Islam in the Netherlands and Europe.
Secondly, Turkish membership of the EU will lead to more uncontrolled mass immigration into Western Europe. For decades in the Netherlands we have already have experienced the negative effects of immigration from Turkey, like the heavily over-representation of Turkish immigrants in almost all of the “bad” statistics.
More importation of the backward Islamic culture would be undesirable; our European culture is based on the Christian-Jewish and humanistic culture, and not on the Islamic culture. We are no cultural relativists. Western civilization is so much better than a culture based on Islamic imperialism and barbarism.
Thirdly, a Turkish EU membership will cost Europe billions of euros. Money that for certain has to be handed over by the Dutch taxpayers, since the Netherlands is one of the largest net contributors to the EU.
Fourth, Turkey in due time would have the largest population of the European Union. That implies that Turkey then also would supply most of the European Parliamentarians. Given the terrible reality that ever more EU legislation is imposed on the EU Member States — including on the Netherlands — this would mean that the Turks would gain more influence on Dutch lawmaking than the Dutch themselves.
Fifth, Europe should not want to border on countries like the Islamic Republic of Iran and Syria, which would be the case if Turkey would join the EU.
Having borders on such bandit-countries is risky for European countries and unwise from a geopolitical viewpoint. It is by far preferable to have Turkey as a buffer between the East and the West.
Sixth: Over 95 percent of Turkey lies outside of Europe. A geographical fact. If we project from that and allow Turkey in as a non-European country, tomorrow perhaps other Muslim countries like Morocco, Algeria or Tunisia will be knocking the door.
Seventh, a Turkish EU membership would mean that the country must meet the so-called Copenhagen criteria that Europe demands of all its new members. Then the Turkish army would have to go back to their barracks, because that is what Europe demands. This normally is a very valid demand, but for Turkey I would with conviction have to make an exception on that.
The Turkish army in recent decades has proved very functional in deterring further Islamization of the political system in Turkey. The Turkish army is the greatest defender of the legacy of Kemal Ataturk, who compared Islam with a rotting corpse. Without the corrective role of the Turkish army, Turkey would already have been a second Iran by now.
