Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One moment you are saying it is about race and one moment you are saying it is about religion.  Let's agree that both are bad criteria for deciding if a country should belong to the EU.  If the EU has no defense function, (and should have not cultural function), what are we left with for criteria?  Good governance and what?  Some sense of shared something or other?  That's vague to me.  

It may be implicit to you, as a European, of what should constitute a European Union.  But to an outsider, it is not clear.  It's obviously not clear to a lot of people in Europe, either.  Be aware that there is a difference between honest inquiry and agenda pushing.  I have no agenda.

Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. -Voltaire
