Turkey Sets up its EU Campaign HQ in a Confiscated Christian Building

Undhimmi reports that the Turks have set up their HQ for their campaign to get into the European Union in a building confiscated from the former Orthodox Christian community.

This is especially ironic, of course, in light of the Erdogan's huffing and puffing about the Swiss minaret vote - in response to which he urged Muslims to invest their money in Turkey instead of Switzerland.

The article also reports some more interesting facts about Turkish social attitudes:

More than half of Turks oppose non-Muslim religious meetings

59 percent of those surveyed said non-Muslims either “should not” or “absolutely should not” be allowed to hold open meetings where they can discuss their ideas.

54 percent said non-Muslims either “should not” or “absolutely should not” be allowed to publish literature that describes their faith.

49 percent of those surveyed said they would either “absolutely” or “most likely” not support a political party that accepted people from another religion.
