"Asking questions like that can get you into jail in Turkey." Unfortunately, yes. Recently there was a case of a Turkish writer who only escaped jail time because he had written on the Armenian genocide before the law was passed. I'd be very unhappy if the EU were to allow Turkey in without a lifting this law, and without admitting to the Armenian genocide. I do not agree with you about Cyprus though. Turkey doesn't occupy the northern part. It is its only trading partner, the rest of the world doesn't recognize it. When Cyprus was about to join the EU, the Turkish-part was in favor of reunion, the Greek part not. The EU shouldn't have admitted Cyprus as member before they had sorted things out amonst themselves.
