The authors nicely captures ONE part of history - and then completely misses the OTHER part. In addition to the Ottoman history, Turkey and Israel were on good strategic terms for 50+ years ... since the inception of Israel. Turkey was invested deeply in Israel as much as Israel was in the other. Both leaderships and people had solid commerical, cultural, and strategic relations. But then they fell apart.
