I have many quality Israeli friends. MBA's, software engineers, PhD's. As a Turk the Israelis I meet in the US are classy people. They are patriotic but are not racists. They don't suggest to nuke the Palestinians like Lieberman and many, despite hating the rockets from Hamas, don't approve of killing thousands of civilians. I think Erdogan is justified in his remarks. We are anti Netanyahu and Lieberman and all the right wing crazies you have in Israel. Erdogan speaks Georgian and Greek and he understands the problems of ethnic minorities in Turkey. He opened up to Kurds like no Turkish PM did before. I am a secularist married to a Jewish woman and I do not think that Erdogan is a fundamentalist. I think Israel has a very right wing government which is poisoning the region. I hope Haaretz publishes this remark. Thanks.
