    Ahmet, Turkey is a good country but I think you are mistaken by suggesting that what is going on has anything to do with Israel. It has everything to do with Turkey being dominated by the Muslim fundamentalist party, which most of the Turks oppose. I hope you can see for yourself where the things are going in your country. The Ataturk legacy is no more. The Army?s role is reduced. Saying that, Turkey is not doing Israel a favor by maintaining friendship. Remember when Erdogan couldn?t visit Washington after Turkey prevented using its territory for the US military logistics? He came to Israel, shake Sharon?s hand, begged for help, went to Washington met with the Jewish organization?s leadership, shake their hands, begged for help and only then his aids were able to make an appointment for him at the Capitol Hill. And bringing up the loan guarantees treat is a ridicules thing. I am not even answering this. It will hit the US industry and prevents issuing same guarantees to the Arabs
