    "Like us, they [Muslims] are not all cut from the same cloth, nor do they all think the same way." True, however, moderate Jews are more than willing to decry and denounce terrorist Jews, aren't they? And thank God, they do so. However, moderate Muslims do not decry and denounce terrorist Muslims; au contraire: they harbour them and even finds ways of justifying their criminal acts. In this regard, Jews and Muslims do not behave in the same way; therefore, they cannot be compared. "Why be in such a hurry to reject a building whose founders say it is intended to promote interfaith dialogue? After all, they promised that "extremism will have no place here." - ask Germany what was said about the Islamic centre/mosque they closed this week. Europe's mistake would be to let Turkey in the EU. Turkey has proven, recently, that its "values" are not compatible with European values: Islamism bubbles underneath the apparent secular society (even more with the current government). Besides, if Turkey wants to join EU it must stop occupying the territories of Kurdistan and Cyprus and admit to the Armenian Genocide (if Germany admitted to its past crimes, so must they).
