Erdogans political platform was alighnment with Europe. Europe rejected Turkey from the EU. All of a sudden after years of being Israel's best Muslim friend he is the champion of Hamas and Saviour of the Palestinians. His love of the Pals is as genuine as ahmadinejad. Once again the Pals and Israel are being used as a means to incite for the purposes of political blackmail, and instead of being terrified that yet another large Muslim country is alighning itself with the idiology and methods of Islamists the west are busy perfecting the art of apologetics. This is history repeating itself, Europe with its appeasing head up its arse. Lets hope they pull it out before the human rights based parlimentry democracies they profess to love so much become an endangered species.
