This guy has a knack for saying what the European leadership and the American leadership are thinking, but cannot come right out and say. They are working up to it though. Turkey doesn't need America as much as America needs Turkey. This means that the American government will just lend silent consent to Erdogans words. If the Americans really took exception to them we would have already heard them criticizing Erdogan. Even the longest journey starts with the first step. It's just surprising that the first steps toward middle east peace will have been taken by the Turks. On the other hand, maybe it is not so surprising. Jewish influence in Turkey is nil.
