Welcome, friends, to the latest major event, wherein a Western leader makes a decision for you which appears to be the diametric opposite of the most basic common sense.
Turkey and the European Union have agreed at a summit on a “historic” €3 billion aid deal to stem the flow of Syrian refugees and other migrants to Europe.
Ankara’s bid for membership of the EU will be kickstarted in return for its cooperation in preventing the 2.2 million Syrian refugees it hosts from coming to Europe, EU president Donald Tusk said.
Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said it was a “historic day” and vowed that his country would keep its promises, in the face of scepticism from some countries in the 28-member EU.
“We expect a major step towards changing the rules of the game when it comes to stemming the migration flow that is coming to the EU via Turkey,” Tusk told a press conference with Davutoglu and European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker.
“We will also step up our assistance to Syrian refugees in Turkey through a new Refugee Facility of three billion euros.”
Turkey’s progress in meeting the terms on the deal would be reviewed at least once a month, Tusk said.
A long history of wariness between Brussels and Ankara, coupled with European concerns over human rights and Turkey’s role in the Syrian conflict, including the shooting down of a Russian warplane in the last week, made the negotiations difficult.
Wow, at least these things made it “difficult.” Really makes me feel secure that there was some hesitation as the EU decided to funnel billions into a state which is now being openly exposed as a terrorist base and a top funder of ISIS.
Seriously. Could these people not simply chill out? They made this deal exactly as Russia is divulging all of this information proving that not only are very influential Turks involved in funding ISIS, but Erdogan himself is.
This deal was also made just a couple days after Turkey arrested journalists for exposing the transfer of arms to ISIS.
Even if the EU supports ISIS openly now, which appears to basically be the case, are they not opposed to arresting journalists for reporting on the government?
Juncker insisted that the €3 billion is “not being given with no strings attached”.
He also added that despite the deal “we have not forgotten the differences that still remain with Turkey over human rights and freedom of the press, and we will return to them”.
What a relief!
Davutoglu, who was standing in for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said the deal would “re-energise” Turkey’s EU accession process, which has made little headway since it started in 2005.
“This is a historic day and a historic meeting, the first meeting of this kind in 11 years,” the Turkish premier added.
“Turkey will be fulfilling all the promises of the joint plan,” he said, adding that “this €3 billion is to be spent for refugees in Turkey, it’s not for Turkey”.
Under the agreement, Turkey will take steps including cracking down on people smugglers and cooperating with the EU on the return of people who do not qualify as refugees.
Turkey will meanwhile get its wish for the acceleration of its bid for membership of the EU, with only one of 35 so-called “chapters” in the accession process completed in a decade of stop-start talks.
The EU agreed to open Chapter 17 of Turkey’s accession process – covering economic and monetary policy – by mid-December. It also agreed to have two summits with Turkey each year.
Brussels also committed to easing the rules for visas to visit the EU’s Schengen passport-free area by October 2016, a major demand by Ankara.
This whole thing is completely unbelievable. Difficult to process, really, that something like this can even happen.
Though these talks were obviously planned before the Russian jet was shot down, this statement of aggressive solidarity with Turkey coming so close to that seems to be more than a coincidence. It is almost as if the jet was shot down on purpose just before these talks, so as to make an even bolder statement against Russia, and in support of ISIS.
The logical thing to do in response to this “migrant” crisis would have been to sanction Turkey into stopping the flow. Bribing them is weird, and unlikely to have a positive outcome. Adding potential EU membership to the billions of bribe money makes it smash-your-head-against-a-brick-wall retarded.
Flashing back to 2013, before this insane migrant situation started in earnest, we find that 80% of Turk roaches living in Germany were on welfare.
Three million Turks live already in Germany already, while 2.5 million of them have German nationality, and the majority of them are conservative Muslims.
Are they integrated in the German society? Not really.
The majority of them speak broken German, especially the elderly.
“They don’t want to integrate in the German society,” says Hartmut, who doesn’t want to be identified for fear of reprisals by violent Turks. “They even hate to be called ‘migrants’. They feel very Turkish. They happen to be in Germany as the elderly generation in the 1960s had been recruited to work in the car and coal industries. Now, culturally the majority of Turks, even the young, here in Germany feel very Turkish. ” Adds Hartmut, who is a social scientist at a German university.
Professor Cohen subscribes to what Hartmut says about Turkish migration, “In the USA, for instance, migrants usually integrate in the American society, latest when the second generation is there. My survey indicate that the majority of Turks insist on keeping their Turkish identity and their cultural heritage. They feel at home in the Turkish culture.”
Very few Turks in Germany have a regular job; about 20%. The other 80% live on the so-called Hartz IV (state social benefits). 70% of their children have no GCSE; they left school before they finished their basic education.
Putting aside all talk of race, religion, etc., this still violates basic common sense. Seventy-five million Turks are going to be all up on Europe if they get EU membership. That will be a worse crisis than the current migrant influx.
Following the revelations, which are soon going to be proved beyond any doubt, that the highest ranks of the Turk government are involved directly with funding ISIS, the EU should by rights have begun bombing Turkey.
Basic. Common. Sense.
But no. Instead, closer ties with the terrorist state.
What is the plan? Why would anyone think this made sense?
Yep. The Telegraph is now admitting that this is a globalist conspiracy, this EU plan. Because, you know, it can’t really be denied.
