Some European MEP's want to cut Turkeys financial aid because they believe that the Erdogan regime will just spend it on tools to crack down on protestors.

A draft resolution is being penned for when parliament reconvenes in the fall.

Fule by name...

The European Union is going to allocate 236 million euros to Turkey so that the country is able to conduct reforms in the spheres of justice, human rights, migration policy, the energy industry, environmental protection and agriculture, European Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy Štefan Füle is quoted as saying.

The European Commissioner is also quoted as saying that EU-Turkey ties are developing very successfully and that he hopes the financial aid provided by the EU will encourage future democratic reforms in the country.

The European Union and Turkey started talks concerning the country's membership of the body in 2005. The current round of talks started on November 5th.

The EU are just plain idiots. I am all for giving money for reforms, but surely to God, it should be to those that cannot genuinely afford it. Turkey needing €236m a drop in the ocean to Turkey. This is just blood money so she can oppress her people further. It is times like these that you realise that the EU is utter BS. And time for a reform of itself.

They should be ashamed of themselves With many unemployed and starving EU wide, this money could be better spent than on an islamic terrorist state that no one wants in the EU anyway.

Europe Should Say No to Turkey for Good

Not only does Turkey dream about being a member of the European Union, but the future of Europe depends on it. At least that is the narrative put forward by both American officials and many European diplomats for quite some time. In 2009, for example, President Obama said that European Union membership would “firmly anchor” Turkey in Europe.

Whether out of conviction or a desire for access, some U.S.-based Turkey analysts also push the line, and suggest that EU membership will further Turkey’s reform and bolster Europe’s economy.

Such sentiments may be politically correct, but they are nonsense. Rather than become more democratic or truly reform, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has transformed Turkey into a banana republic. In recent days, he has not only fired police chiefs across the country to ensure that his own personal cronies take their place, but has moved to punish Zekeriya Öz, the prosecutor once embraced for targeting Turkey’s generals, but who now is a pariah for questioning those in the prime minister’s inner circle. On Tuesday, Öz released a statement detailing the threats he received. “Soon after the first wave of warrants,” he wrote, “I was called to a meeting by two people from the high judiciary. We met in a hotel in Bursa. They told me that Erdoğan was very angry with me. They asked me to write an apology letter to Erdoğan and stop the investigations. Otherwise I would have to suffer the consequences ….” Despite the constant threats he now receives, Erdoğan has stripped him of security. He is, effectively, a dead man walking.

At its root, the reason for the corruption scandal targeting Erdoğan’s inner circle was the prime minister’s targeting of a network of lucrative test-prep centers run by adherent of Fethullah Gülen. That many Western-leaning Turks, diplomats, and journalists now place their hopes in Gülen, a shadowy religious cult leader whose about-face has been motivated not by democratic enlightenment but personal spite and greed, reinforces the notion that not only is Turkey not ready for Europe, but it never will be. Within Turkey, demography favors the conservative, Islamist-leaning followers of Erdoğan. Both Erdoğan and Gülen’s recent behavior show that real democratic culture has not accompanied the much-heralded reforms implemented by Erdoğan.

No matter who comes out in Turkey’s political struggle, it is time once and for all to put to rest the idea that Turkey will ever join Europe, nor should it. Enabling Turkish membership into the European Union would at this point be little different in effect than allowing Egyptian, Syrian, Lebanese, or Libyan accession. Policy must be based on reality, not wishful thinking. Erdoğan should go down in history as the man that ruined Turkey’s decade-long dream.

The CSU is the sister party to Merkel’s CDU...

Report: German official says Turkey's EU talks should be suspended

General Secretary of the German Christian Social Union (CSU) Andreas Scheuer has called on the European Union to halt accession talks with Turkey on the grounds that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's Turkey doesn't belong in Europe, a major German regional daily reported on Tuesday.

According to a report released on the website of The Rheinische Post, the CSU's Scheuer said in Munich on Monday that Erdoğan has threatened his opponents and critics of his government, and this act is against European norms and democratic values.

"A country where the government is threatening its critics and democratic values are being trampled cannot belong to Europe. The CSU calls for an immediate suspension of the EU accession negotiations," he reportedly said during an address to members of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) and the Green Party, adding, “ A privileged partnership is becoming out of the question for Turkey.”

He doesn't go far enough. They should apply sanctions to Turkey otherwise Turkey will just be laughing in their faces.

This is the EU's fault, they have been strung along and made to look like fools while Erdogan and his ministers now "burn books" and stuff shoebox's full of EU harmonization funds under their bed's.

There has been nothing from the EU yet, condemning the leaked plan to instigate a false flag operation so they can invade Syria. (are they in on it?) If this was Putin, they would be all over it.

EU accession talks with Turkey should come to an end and Turkey should be sanctioned. There is no hope for this nation and its unfortunate neighbors who have to share a border with it.

Turkey join the EU? This is the joke of the decade.
