Jane says: The EU might care about what they call human rights on paper but that`s about it. You are ill informed about the EU; The beauty of the EU is that its members are literally trapped in social and political correctness to the point where it yields VERY tough laws, on pretty much everything, and VERY heavy fines to members that don?t implement them by the required deadline. It?s the classic punishment and reward system used to train circus animals and it works perfect! Jane says: If Turkey can join then anyone can. Turkey is being ?evaluated? for membership but chances are it will never make it; there are other motives in this ?attempt?. I won?t go into details here because it is a topic worthy of its own forum. Jane says: Having said that Israel has alot less to worry about then the Palestinains? I definitely cannot agree with that. Israel can only ever join under ?extraordinary? circumstances as I stated in another post. It would be an arduous process too. Yet another complex topic.
