    Yours is a typical Jewish response. Never address the substance of criticism directed at Israel, but always attack the bearer of the criticism. Turkey does not kill and pose bombs in the name of their God. Turkey engages in no violence between Shias and Sunnis. Turkey has killed no one in Darfur. Turkey does not lapidate women nor practice sharia law. You have no idea what Turkey teaches its children. Turkey is not anti-West, it is a member of NATO: more loyal to NATO than France. Israel is not the only democracy in the Middle East. Turkey and Lebanon are democracies and were so before Israel became a nation. Turkey is in violation of no UN resolutions, while Israel is in violation of more UN resolutions than any country in the world. The Israeli blockade of Gaza is considered by the international community to be the worst violation of human rights taking place in the world today. Turkey bears no such burdens.
