EU has clearly stated what Turkey must do if they ever want to become EU member. So far Turks didn't make any visible changes in human rights protection or in democracy strengthening.
Besides, they must do another difficult thing for them to recognize Genocide of Armenians. That prerequisite was in EU Parliament statement

Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon were once part of Ottoman Empire (it collapsed after WWI and on its crumbles modern Turkey was formed). And Arabs as many other nations were enslaved and treated badly. So arabs are not fond of turks.

The Turks with a 10% annual growth and a vibrant economy they are more interested in doing business with the rich Arab states if the GCC which are now in a spending spree, specially in Saudi Arabia where USD 700 billion have been approved for projects in the next 7 years than in joing the European Union, also the majority as voted for more Islamic reforms which means they are not tilting toward Europe and seen the economic failure of Europe do not blame them.
