Rockets against civilians (among other things) is terrorism. You are judged by your actions, not by the label on your jacket. And if we think for a second about Ankaras policies regarding the kurds or the armenians, or it´s cosy cooperation with Teheran, then it becomes just an absurd theater when Erdogan shows his eagerness to become a "regional player". Let the kurds attack Izmir with rockets, and then we could arrange a seminar about terrorism. But the bottom line here is the wounded pride and aspirations of power of Erdogan. Tome, It looks like obsession. A silly and destructive obsession. He defiles the legacy of Ataturk. But finally - you, not I, brought the "who is a jew" into this controversy. Well, this issue is a mess. No consensus in sight. But one thing is clear: Iran and Hamas wouldn´t classify Erdogan as a model muslim. He is lightweight, and he really should retire and stop sending the outcome of his woundedpride around the world.
