    Sir, with all due respect, you have got it wrong. What drives Turkish policy in Syria is the aspiration to lead the Muslim world. As the Sunnis are a majority, and view shias as a thorn in the back, Turkey wanted to replace the Alevi (offshoot of shia) regime in Syria with a Sunni (Muslim brotherhood) dominated regime. Hence, Turkey seeks to turn Syria to a Turkish protectorate. Turkey’s stand against Israel is due to the deep seated hatred against Jews. Erodgan claims that there is a Jewish conspiracy behind everything he sees wrong in Turkey and the world. Even news articles are attributed to a “Zionist conspiracy” by Erdogan. And, Turkey is not admitted to EU because, of its occupation of Cyprus, and because of its treatment to its people (Kurds, non-muslims, Alevis, etc).
