in response to reader comment: Dreams of a "great" ally

Submitted by Yuval Brandstetter MD (Israel), May 12, 2007 at 03:32

These statistics of American and Jew hatred are no better in Britain, France, Norway, Sweden, and anywhere islamo-fascist propaganda is fast and loose. On the other hand Turkey has a huge tourist influx from Israel, long-term security deals and agreements, an understanding of how to deal with Syria, and commercial ties hard to sever with propaganda only.

I do not see the great flight of Turkish jews, neither to israel nor to the USA, Jews were better off in turkey during the WW than anywhere in europe and even in Israel under the British rule. When an islamist regime is set up in Turkey I shall agree with you. For the time being, facts are more salient than propaganda.
