Some of Mr. Kolkhi's other arguments may be valid, but it's illogical to
suggest that membership in the European Union makes a country European.  The
same argument was advanced for Cyprus earlier this year.  By that reasoning,
since France and the United States belonged to SEATO (the South-East Asia
Treaty Organization), they must be Southeast Asian countries.
