I don't think they generally dislike immigrants.
Public perception of immigrants is negative due to their crime rates.
Public perception of immigrants is negative due to culture
Public perception of immigrants is due to their lack of assimilation.

In my country we've had 1 murder in the last 20 or so years. The killer was an islami immigrant.

Certian places like the US are put in a negative light by other countries. Rather than blame the accused, these countries take it out on the average citizen. They feel they are upholding their hatred or distent with a countries political or ethic system by being rude to the average tourist or immigrant resident. This is why you have places where people go "Stupid Americans!" or the like.
It seems they judge the actions of higher power by blaming the people who have no control over how their country works. This is how i see it. :/
(Don't believe everything you see on TV or the internet and decide to deny residential/tourism rights to innocent people willing to take time and money out of their lives to embrace another countries culture....It's sickeningly rude imo. We're all humans.)aka mild xenophobia

I was mostly taking a shot in the dark that the Ottomans might have had some influence there.
Also 2000th post, yay.

Seems like a lot of Europeans who are pissed at the immigrant when they should be pissed at their immigrant laws.
I honestly think it's all about the fact that they come to our house (Europe), not wiping their shoes on the doormat and then forcing their own ideas/belief upon us.
I'm not sure if you all have seen the videos from the muslims guys walking around London, telling people it's "muslim territory" and that they need to leave it asap... Seriously? Someone comes from his sand-civilization country and then tries to kick off the genuine English people off their own land? You guys should do something about it, and do it QUICK. Not even talking about France or Scandinavian countries...Please, and I say again PLEASE, stand up for yourself before it's too late. There's no reason to give everything your culture stands for in, just because someone says you're "intolerant".
In my country they say "Wolnoć Tomku w swoim domku", which means you're free to do whatever you like in your own home. It should apply to your country as well, seeing as it's your home.
I'm definitely happy that my country is not immigrant-friendly, I'd rather have religous zealots coming from Christianity (mostly harmless), than muslims killing people on the streets, just because their "religion of peace" tells them so.
I say cut the welfare, block the borders and cleanse your land. We don't need people from aborad if we organise ourselves better.
Infracted: Please refrain from generalizing and stereotyping certain religions for the actions of a select few.
One area that Turkish culture has affected this region in, though, is food. That's quite obvious to anyone living here. Kebabs, for example, were introduced into Europe across the conquered regions from the Turks and I'm given to understand it's extremely popular everywhere at this point. xD
Oh, yeah, Albania is, along with Bosnia, one of the countries that was significantly affected by Muslim culture. But then again Muslim culture and Turkish culture are not really synonymous.

That's the problem with the UK and France, a lot of their immigration is colonial related.
Oh and also, don't judge a whole bunch of people by two or three wackos. There's people that only want a better future for themselves. They'd have it a home, unfortunately their countries don't work due ALSO to outside interferences so.

Also, the area you mentioned went through a lot of troubles in the last 40 years.
Try looking at marseille, Malaga, the whole of Sicily.
Also, I can't help but notice Croatia. Croatia has lots of "Venice" in it. Subsequently, Venice has quite a few architectural features imported from the other side of the Mediterranean.

I've been in turkey for a while and I have to say a moderate Islamic country has very little or no difference when compared to any moderate Christian country. AND a couple of plus as well I admit.

Immigrants are fine it's illegal Immigrants that are an Global issue.
this is my signature... jealous?
Why should we have respect for people who killed us for centuries anyway? They made us pay jizya because their Quran says 9.29 "Wage war on the people of scripture (jews and christians) until they humiliate themselves by paying the tax"
We still use some turkish words and eat some turkish food, but that is about it. There never was any "mass scale happy melting pot".

This thread has once again revealed how little americans know of Europe.

"We're all the same" is just tree hugging bullshit from the past.
Lack of assimilation and loud minority voices that tabloids oh so love to plaster everywhere.
