    Turkey, Albania and Macedonia are all muslim countries. Europe will be islamified through legitimate channels irrespective of refugees.
    If they move to our country, pay their bills, add to our economy and live a peaceful and violence-free life (which most do, unlike what UKIP-ers seem to think), who cares if they emigrate to live here?

    What are you trying to achieve? You do realise 100% of IN voters want them to join the EU? Who are you trying to convince?
    I would like to object that claim, as an IN voter who absolutely does not want Turkey to join the EU, at least in its current state.

    That's like complaining that the African Union is dominated by black people.

    With the exception of parts of the Balkans Europe is a white and historically Christian continent.

    Do they?
    Yes, a vote for IN is a vote for EU expansion

    You are lying. A vote for IN is a vote for EU expansion, I guess you never got the memo

    They are at least partially Muslim.

    The "rubbish" birth figures come from the Republic of Macedonia State Statistical Office's Macedonia in Figures (2012), online here: http://www.stat.gov.mk/Publikacii/Mak_Brojki_2012_A.pdf

    Page 14: if you add Albanians (7,727), Turks (1,046), and Roma (1,574), you get 10,347 Muslim births per year, on a total of 22,270 overall. So, 46.4% of newborns are Muslim.

    Before you say that not all of them are Muslim, you must also take into account that there is a minority of Muslim ethnic Macedonians - which does not appear in the statistics, so the number of Muslim births could be higher.

    You're welcome.
    Roma are likely Christian, you presume all the Albanians are Muslim which is unlikely, Births of Muslim are likely around 40% tops so by no means a Muslim nation which is what you said in your initial statement. You lied, made a false claim, fact!

    I said that Albanians were not all Muslim, but I also said that some ethnic Macedonians were Muslim; I moreover did not count Bosniaks, who are likely Muslim.

    Roma are Muslim in Macedonia.

    I never pretended that Macedonia was a Muslim nation. I said: "One third of the population and almost half of new births are Muslim.", which is true.
    The majority of the population is Christian, but there is a very large and increasing Muslim minority.
