    We don't have to take any crap from Turkey. Maybe it is better not to sell them weapons. Israel has a right to defend itself. Danny Ayalon is a fine person btw. Maybe this will draw Israel and the USA closer. Maybe it will strengthen ties with the arab countries which fear islamists and an islamist takeover. After all, it is Turkey that is making the trouble; they killed our Israeli soldiers on the boat and wanted to take them as captives; we cannot allow that to happen at all. They were interested in starting the next war. They broke the economic ties. Things are defnitely changing in the region. Ataturk warned them to keep at peace in the world and at home; he warned them against siding with the Germans (losers) in any future wars, yet at a recent post-flotilla rally, they were waving swastikas. Who are the flotilla organizers - swastika wavers. Although I don't like what Ataturk did to the Armenians and the Turks are plenty racist, he did understand that the Nazis were bad for Turkey and to keep out of any wars. Turkey has yet to reconcile with the Armenians or the Kurds. When it is ready to reconcile with the Armenians and Kurds, maybe then they will come back to Israel.
