Only yesterday Ayalon predicted that the Islamist regime in Turkey will speak differently about Israel from now on. Now Turkey says, for the first time in many years, that Israel is a "strategic ally". We will see how long this kind of talk lasts after Israel delivers the next batch of drones to the Turkish army. Erdogan is NOT to be trusted! Turkey is a self-described "strategic ally" but Israel has other allies. A real friend is worth any number of strategic allies.
