Europe doesn't want us. They are not wrong.
No matter what we think.
Actually I think so. For example in sports or the other competitions, we are so much better than the other middle east or Asia countries. So it feels like we are much closer to Europe comparing to Asia for me.
ofcourse not europeans,there is no europe country that create such mess and problems like turkey .
As a race no, they are turkic (Central Asian). As a country yes, they belong to Europe.
that's a complicated question
We are very mixed nation like Americans.
Well... yes but actually no
during era of ottoman empire the janissaries and most of the soldiers were all coming from Balkan and Europe and turks originally coming from central asia so 50/50
Turkey has 5% of its land-mass on the European side. You don't need Europeans to answer this.
Geographically? A small part
Culturally? They share a bit with Greece but not a lot with the rest of Europe.
Overall no and they shouldn't be in the EU.
Doesnt matter what they believe
They will join ONLY when they will start behaving normally
As i can see not in near future
I will start off as saying that I live in europe, if I were to compare it, I would say that the cities themselves is not much different than a european city, the surroundings may be a little poorer but the reason for that is pretty clear
when it comes to behaviour of the people I dont see any difference between any other mediterranean country such as france or italy and turkey,
politically I would say turkey is much closer to middle east because of islam
but lets not forget that there is a little bit of european or rather balkan culture/cuisine in turkey way back from the ottoman era and that turkey takes part in most european events
I really think that this question is up for debate but I would say from what I have seen that turkey is closer to europe than anything, i would describe the culture as mediterranean but with the addition of islam
Not in its current state.
no man we are not europeans
Turkey is NORTH AMERICAN for sure.
"The earliest turkeys evolved in North America over 20 million years ago, and they share a recent common ancestor with grouse, pheasants, and other fowl."
no such thing. Turkey in Anatolia. Anatolia is the middle of the east and west. that is, the Anatolian region was influenced by western and eastern culture. I mean, it is not only Turkey belongs to Europe or Asia.
Turkey is like a demilitarized zone between 2 countries except its between 2 regions (EU/Middle East) and its not demilitarized. It doesn't belong fully in either.
How to avoid being stacked against turks in MM?
ofc, turkey europeast country on earth mashallah
We are originated from central Asia. But right now, in terms of culture, Turkey is both European and Asian. It's a mixed country and nobody can deny it.
Btw I get offended when only far east Asians like The Chinese, The Japanese, Koreans etc. come people's minds when they hear the word "Asian".
Ethnically and geographically: Asian
Asia > Europe btw.
Smarter, bigger, more hardworking, elder, more beautiful.
(Also, nobody gives a flying f"ck about the sinking ship called European Union)
i dont know actually. sometimes yes i feel european but after that i see some braindead muslim turks then i say damn we are middle east too.
we are varied country. in turkey you can see very secular carnaval, entertainment and very bigot islamic behavior at same time.
20 years ago turkey count as european. but know (erdogan politics) turkey mostly middle east think.
also dont forget that.
