68 ratings | 5934 views
While in Europe the opposition to Turkish accession increases dramatically, Turks search for alternatives. Not only did Turkey abolish the visa requirement for many Arabic countries in the past few years, but Turkish companies are now also conquering the Middle East. Cities like Gaziantep grow out of their joints through the lively trade with neighboring Syria. And Iraq is being built back after war at breakneck speed by Turkish building contractors. Bram is traveling along and across the border with the Arab world that Turkey had turned its back on decades ago. Will Turkey change the Middle East or will the Middle East change Turkey? Original title: Away from Europe In this seven-part series Bram Vermeulen travels through Turkey - From Istanbul to the sparsely populated mountains in the east; from the closed borders of Armenia to the open southern borders shared with neighboring Arab countries - observing the rapid changes in a country that has a renewed fresh confidence.

That is so great to hear! So BBC´s documentaries are biased?
TheSnakeGaming (1 month ago)
Most definitely I am subscribed. What I enjoy is you let the locals give their views, so different from the horrible BBC who ignore the true people and give the BBC narrative as gospel. BBC is, dont listen to common folk, we know better.

I been to that mall “Majidi Mall” in 2011 that used to be the only ATM in N. Iraq. Im from America but i think the USA, Iraq and Turkey are the best countries.

Turkey should trade more with Greece. The stuff in the supermarket in Greece is so expensive. More than in the USA... Turks have really cheap food and seems like similar to Greek food somewhat. I was really surprised to see no Turkish food in the supermarkets their but if they traded they could both have a better standard of living. I don’t know if its a pride thing or tariffs or what, but i though turkey had a trade agreement with the EU that made it easy to sell turkish products. If its a pride thing like greeks don’t wanna be seeing a bunch of Turkish stuff in the supermaket then thats just dumb and pointless. Thats why pride is considered a sin sometimes. Idk if thats the case though either cause i heard trade between the two in food is actually in the millions if not billions of dollars but I didn’t see anything turkish there. Is it repacked or something it would have to say the origin in that case. Can someone explain? I don’t understand what turks don’t sell more food to Greeks.
As you can see, Turkey is very open minded when it comes to trade issues. So it could be the Greek sides desicion to not make deals with the Turks. It could be about the past events between those countries or it just could be to protect the domestic producer market. But i too wonder what is the cause of this stiuation.

though the style is almost entirely improvised there is so much to reveal to westerners that almost everything is interesting

Arabs and Kurds are superior to Turks in many ways. Obviously not in everyway, but the same way Europeans look at Turks is how Turks look at arabs and Kurds. Just like how Iranians are seen as terrorists in America but they look at Afghans and Pakistanis as though they are better than them or whites in America look at Blacks and Hispanics like they are superior to them. This whole racism shit is getting old and it needs to stop. Every culture has something unique and beautiful to offer the world and we need to learn from about each other and just focus on helping out manking
