An interesting view

This picture appeared in Le Monde yesterday. Apart from the fact that it is insulting to the Turks, what is it trying to say? . I'm not sure whether this is what they are trying to say, being a French newspaper and all, but could it not mean this. The EU is a bunch of people sitting around together producing crap. Some are more sophisticated than others at the task, but the end result is still the same.

I think it's reference to the toilet habits of Muslims? Many fundamentalists do believe in using a hole in the ground rather than a Western-style toilet. That's what I got from it anyways. It's hard to see.

Wow, but if that's the case. . .it's really kind of . . .racist. Or "beliefist". . .I'm not the greatest fan of Islam but this is crude. I'm surprised it was published in a major newspaper. But then again, it's French. . .
