Reader comment on item: Turkey's Erdo─čan Gambles and Loses

Submitted by walter (United States), Mar 22, 2016 at 06:37

Apparently Turkey wants to normalize relations with Israel. It appears that Netanyahu might be falling for this ploy. Turkey has the chutzpah to make demands on Israel such as lifting the blockade around terrorist Gaza. As long as Erdogen and the Islamists are in power there is no chance of a real rapprochement with Israel. It would be extremely foolish for Israel to give into any of Erdogen's demands
