Abdullah Gul, Turkey’s president, stated in a speech in Britain that the Middle East needs an organization of nations like the EU. According to the Financial Times, Gul believes such an organization would advance politics and economics along democratic lines.
In his rush to advance such a new world order idea, Mr Gul has overlooked the fact that the EU leans more toward socialism and has been weakened economically. He has also ignored the fact that the so-called Arab spring is a move toward sharia and not democracy.
