This makes sense. I have wondered about this stragetic area for a long time. Danny Ayalon is smart guy. If the Cypriots get their backbone it seems Turkey will have to back off. They have enough trouble as it is and really nobody really knows whose side the Turks are on, not even the Turks. Depends on the way the wind is blowing. An Athens/Jerusalem alliance needs to happen. Maybe the Greeks, end game, will prove to be more reliable than the current American Administration. It will be a new Olympic run, but something tells me the torch will make it across the finish line if they just hold their own against Turkey on this one. Kudos to Israel!
