Reader comment on item: Turkish-Syrian Tensions Flare Anew

Submitted by Ilene Richman (United States), Jun 19, 2011 at 20:20

It is about time that another country, although tilting toward being Islamic, took care of the bully Assad in Syria. Syria and Iran are major causes of terrorism in this Middle East region. They have spread terrorism to Lebanon and created terrorist Hezbollah in Lebanon. This is a terrorism virus spreading through the Middle East by Muslim countries. A few months ago, Turkey tried to send a "fake" fllotilla to Gaza filled with weapons. Turkey was trying to create mayhem in Israel so Israelis should be murdered by the terrorists in Hamas stationed in Gaza. It was alright for Turkey, at that time, to have aspirations that the Hamas would kill the Israelis with weapons aboard the flotilla. But Israel intercepted this flotilla in its tracks and boarded the ship. Many Israeli soldiers were battered by weapons aboard the Turkish flotilla. Now Turkey is crying fowl. It is not alright to kill Muslims by Syria but it is alright to kill Israelis by Hamas via weapons sent by Turkey.

Turkey is a hypocrite and should be eliminated from NATO. When Turkey was allowed to join NATO, Turkey was a secular country. Now that Turkey has turned toward being an Islamic country and has announced its determination to be an Islamic country by voting for many Islamists in its Parliment", Turkey should be dismissed by the NATO allies. Turkey's motto is "Kill the Jews but it is not alright for Syria to kill Syrian Muslims". Turkey believes Muslim lives are more valuable than Jewish lives. If it were up to Turkey, Turkey would obliterate Israel from the map. It is time for NATO to wake up and negate Turkey from participating in NATO as NATO is made up of democratic countries, not Islamic countries.
