Finally, an Article in the British Press Opposing Turkey's EU Entry

It finally happened! Just as I was getting ready to write a blog post on the curious fact that I had never seen a single article in the mainstream British press opposing Turkey's entry to the EU, one actually appears. Hail Peter Hitchens of the Daily Mail!

And it's an excellent article too, making some great points. Hitchens notes that while women in Iran wear the veil because they are forced to, the women in Turkey do it because they want to.

And when Hitchens talks to a wide range of Turkish intellectuals, from opposite ends of the political spectrum, what seems common to them all is their absolute contempt for Europe. Why are our politicians proposing to let these savages into the European Union when they feel nothing but contempt for us?
