What shall we call the soup that´s cooking with so many ingredients?

Reader comment on item: [Turkey-Israel and] The Real "New Middle East"

Submitted by Isaac Haskiya (Denmark), Jun 17, 2009 at 09:07

Intricate but good article. Let´s see. Turkey-Israel-Jordan as a stable platform plus some friendly states in the Caucasus and Central Asia, isolating Syria and Iran for a while...why not? Syria might even be convinced to come out of it just precisely by Turkey. Iran might be left alone in the end. Greece and Cyprus are stubbornly opposing Turkey but some Hellenistic good sense might prevail in the end. It would be interesting to see what Iran would be able to do with its sole "compadre" far away, North Korea. Main stream Islam should not be criticized alongside extremism; it has good qualities. Turkey should not packaged together with Islamism. Let us hope that the Turkish Constitution will be able to cope with this problem. What the Middle East needs is stability and moderation. Israel and Turkey can deliver that.
