No, "American", if that's what you actually are, Turkey is not more powerful than America, you seem to have missed the point entirely. However, in NATO, the US is not the president, and all member nations, including Turkey, have EQUAL veto power over any collective action, sort of like how the US has veto power for UN Security Council actions. No other member nation can "compel" another nation to do anything, even the US, MY country, which just makes us look like bullies when we employ our power to "compel" other nations to make unpopular domestic decisions for other, NON-NATO countries, in this case, Israel. If you truly value alliances as you purport to do, then it would logically follow that you would support a fellow Nato ally, Turkey, over any non-Nato ally, such as Israel. IF, however, you value non-Nato friendships more, then you logically support a country's domestic decisions and private alliances more than Nato ones, in which case Turkey's decision to reject such a biased conference would still be logically sound. In plain English, sir, you're wrong.
