Explanation, please

Reader comment on item: The Middle Eastern Cold War

Submitted by Saul Rapkin (United States), Jun 22, 2009 at 11:16

In the article above I am confused by part of item 4:
(4) Close Turkish-Israeli ties have floundered as Ankara's increasingly overt Islamist leadership opposes Israeli government policies, deploys hostile language against the Jewish state, invites its enemies to Ankara, transfers Iranian arms to Hezbollah, and uses anti-Zionism to isolate the Turkish military. (My italics.)

Can you explain further what the italicised portion of the statement means?

Thank you.
