countries and peoples are not enemies

Reader comment on item: Forty Years after the Invasion of Cyprus
in response to reader comment: Where does Greece stand concerning Israel?

Submitted by servet cevik (Turkey), Sep 11, 2014 at 22:22

It is only a political choice of the "current" turkish leadership to have "bad relations with israel"

Some ten years ago turkey and israel had beyond perfect relations and strategic alliance.

tayyip being a religious zealot, intentionally detoriated this alliance.

dont worry neither turkey nor israel will ever escalate this tension to a war as it has no benefit for either party.

as for cyprus, for me it is not even a country. it lacks "politics and sources of scale" to be a real country. it would be much better if it is partitioned between greece and turkey. since neither parties on the island has enough stamina to stand on its own without political backing from their mother countries.
