Ethel, the fact that many Europeans oppose a full membership of Turkey in the EU is not because of anti-Muslim feelings. The reason is that Turkey is a very big and relatively poor country. Therefore it's membership would cost billions of euros each year and many more immigrants would come into the EU. Also Turkish politicans sometimes make nasty comments about Germany which does not help to increase the support for their EU membership. Saying that the EU must let Turkey in is like saying that the US must open the border to Mexico completly and pay billions of your tax money to Mexico each year. The first step should be to destroy the fence which has been built at the border to Mexico. After you did this you can lecture the EU about admitting Turkey as a new member, ok ?
