Last week whilst in Istanbul I observed the complete paradox that is Turkey. Erdogan was seriously angry with the Economist magazine and claimed it was ruled by a gang "taking orders from Israel". He was clearly playing to his pre election audience....... However the reality is that it is not in Turkey's interests to demonize Israel either. If he wants influence he is only going to get it by pragmatism and not playing to the audience!
