    I gave a lot more to Turkey in lobbying efforts to raise the 1974 arms embargo and stop the Armenian Genocide Bill in the US. I visit Turkey and my real good Ataturk following frinds often. I was there a few months ago. You should understand me too. After spending all that personal time and effort an Islamist government took over Turkey where the president is using such harsh and unacceptable language and to top it, is friendly with a stateseman considered a war criminal by the UN. Let me also say that While I felt very comfortable in Izmir this year, in Istranbul I saw some very bad scenes and anti-Semitism. It may be easy for Turkey to choose a new path and part with Israel and not so easy for Israel to lose a friend but if Turkey uses this fact as a weapon then Turkey is not a real freind. This does not fit into the MERTLIK concept of Turks, surprisingly of the KASIMLASALIs (I have friends from Kasimpasa who are real good friends not like Erdogan)

Timidity in face of Jewish terror has a heavy price

The terrorists who murdered Palestinian infant Ali Saad Daobasa have exacerbated the situation in the territories to its most dangerous since the last Gaza war.

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
