2) Turkey isn't a European country.
As an Italian citizen (ethnic one) i utterly oppose the Turkish entry.
They struggle to separate the state from islamic extremists and they have nothing in common with Europe.
And where are all the feminists and child rights advocates when you need them? Dropping your kid on the street?

2) They are not. Turkey is highly Islamic, a faith which is not comparable to Catholicism, and has to heavily enforce the secularism that Ataturk introduced into the government. Furthermore, as they are not culturally European I don't see any reason why they should be permitted. Israel is a preferable candidate to Turkey, point of fact.
They aren't at all highly Islamic, don't know why would you say something like that? Go there try for yourself.
No Israel would be a terrible choice at its current state. No resources, small country, demanding, why bother?
They have a plan to pour 10 Billion dollars in to Bosnia and use the country as a foothold for european expansion. They fund extremist muslim schools and centers. They have around 16 million Kurds that suffer in the poorest parts of the country while the money they need gets spend on neo ottomanism.
I am firmly against them joining.
Israel would be an excellent choice for a number of reasons. For starters, it is a developed democratic republic with a stable economy. Second, it is highly Europeanised. Third, entry into the EU might help to allay their fears about invasion from Syria and Israel and make them less aggressive towards the Palestinians.

Islam is a culturo-religious phenomenon that is culpable for a ream of social and political issues.
