    The security strategies of the Middle East’s lonely and isolated country “Israel” collapsed entirely. Israel lost Iran first than leaned on Turkey but due to the heedless policies Turkey was lost either. Trying to hold Egypt as an ally didn’t work and Egypt is slipping away too. It is for sure that Jordan will be out of Israeli control soon. The Israeli policy should change. Instead of cooperating with dictators or puppet kings to control the region by suppressing the people’s decisions and requirements; Israel should find a way for cooperation and economical growth of the region or should join Turkey’s recent initiative to create a Middle East Union to ease the trade and to increase the life standards of the people. Contrary to Turkey’s efforts, Israel still trying to set up defense agreements with the hopeless leaders of the Balkan and Caucasus countries where people is facing worsening life conditions.
