Europe, in the Claws of Unemployment

Yasin Yagcı - Holland
The European Union, which has not had the influence desired in the international arena, especially when compared to the number of its member states and its potential, is trying to find a way out from its current economic crisis.

Time to Go Home

Yasin Yağcı – The Netherlands
Most Turks who took up the European adventure were planning to return to their homeland in a few years time. Things ended up in a much different way, though. Most newcomers embraced Europe as their new land. Their children, even grandchildren were born and grew up in their new countries. For the later generations, Europe was the homeland.

In my previous column I expressed my thoughts regarding the so-called Armenian Bill in the American Congress. I also shared my opinions on how an issue that is so historically central to Turkey was so easily manipulated by the internal politics of America.

Just like it happened in 2000 during Bill Clinton’s tenure, the Armenian genocide resolution was adopted by a sub-committee, but was taken back before being put to a vote of the full congress.

The USA is the world’s most powerful economic dynamo, yet at the same time it is a consuming monster, swallowing whatever it finds. It is the biggest and the most profitable market of the world. Everyone struggles to put the goods they produce into this market.

September 11, 2001 Tuesday; a big blue sky and the morning chill of September... I arrived at the golf course, which was near Dulles Airport, 40 kilometers from Washington, D.C. My friends Mustafa, Uğur and Aret were waiting for me.

Until recently I was closely watching US and Turkish politics. But 4 or 5 years ago this close attention first dropped to the level of remote interest, then even to not following the news at all. The main reason for this was the political erosion in both countries. If we look closely we can see the similar structures of the erosions.

Geçtiğimiz günlerde bir haftalığına aile ziyaret amacıyla İstanbul’a gittim. Yağmurlu bir hafta olmasına rağmen İstanbul özlemimi bastırma firsatını buldum. Bir hafta boyunca Anadolu yakasında oturduğum halde hemen her gün Avrupa yakasına geçtim, ailem ve arkadaşlarımla hasret giderdim.
