AND SEND THE RIGHT MESSAGE:
AN ATTACK ON ISRAEL IS AN ATTACK ON THE ENTIRE WEST.
TURKEY IS NO LONGER A PRO-WEST NATION AND HAS BECOME ANTI-ISRAEL. MORE PROOF:
Turkey has torpedoed an Israeli plan to contribute an Israel Navy missile ship to a NATO mission in the Mediterranean Sea, in what would have been the first time Israel actively participated in one of the Western military alliance’s operations.
Diplomatic and defense officials told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that Turkey had decided to prevent Israeli participation in the long-term operation – called Active Endeavor – following the Israel Navy raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla in 2010 in which nine Turkish nationals were killed.
Diplomatic officials said that ever since its success, Turkey had been seeking to scuttle greater Israeli participation in the alliance.UNDER THE ISLAMIST AKP - (WHICH STILL RUNS TURKEY AND IS SLOWLY BUT STEADILY ENDING KEMALISM AND TURKEY'S SECULAR DEMOCRACY AND REPLACING IT WITH AN ISLAMIST TYRANNY) - TURKEY HAS BEEN EXPLICITLY ANTI-WEST EVER SINCE REFUSING TO ALLOW U.S. MILITARY TRANSIT THROUGH TURKEY BEFORE THE IRAQ WAR - - - A MAJOR AFFRONT TO OUR ALLIANCE AND OUR STRATEGY FOR DEFEATING SADDAM.
IT'S TIME WE DEALT WITH THEM AS THEY ARE AND NOT AS WE WISHED THEM TO BE.
