Turkey has several problems impacting EU membership. The big problem is that, although western Turkey is very European in character, eastern Turkey is not. It is like a completely different nation. Another major problem is Turkeys struggle with the Kurds. The EU is not anxious to buy into that. On the other hand, Turkey is an important western ally and has been for decades. There is no other nation on earth that is so strategically located as is Turkey. Turkeys acceptance into the EU will take some time and is still a long shot at the moment. There is no chance at all that the EU or anybody else will want Israel and all of Israels associated problems.
