A question asking your opinion

Reader comment on item: Another Voice Predicting Islamism's Doom

I have not written about it because there could well be parts of the agreement that have not been made public, so one would be judging on the basis of incomplete information. From what we do know, the deal is a sensible one or not from Israel's point of view depending on how much its leadership trusts Erdo─čan, something I hope to learn more about.
