Reader comment on item: Turkey: An Ally No More
in response to reader comment: You must listen the other side also,

Submitted by Anne (Australia), Nov 2, 2009 at 05:57

There's an old Jewish saying that goes: Tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who YOU are.
In other words, if The Turkish people feel that Ahmendinejad and Assad are their true friends, then that says something about the Turks.
International and national interests are very important things. But there is also something else that is no less important, and that is your character.
Turkey chose to ally itself with some very cruel, destructive forces in our world's politics. Time will tell what the outcome of this will be, for Turkey as well as for the Middle East.
