Where East meets West.....

Despite of what Kipling said East and West do meet, and they meet at the Bosphorous. The thing is why is Austria being so beligerent about Turkey joining the EU fully. I would guess that some wise men from that land don't like Ataturk's westward looking, Romanising arse kissing (my bet he was a secret byzantine christian!!!). The 'Occident' is the Occident, and the 'Levant' the Levant. Given how much work has gone into Capliphate Europe, the last thing they need is for Turkey to join. This was settled at the conquest of Byzantium. Now East is East and West is West and ne'er the twain shall meet, until that is until it is with the salutation 'As Salaamu Alaykum'
