    Israel's diplomatic flop here in the face of institutionalized anti-semitism from Turkey is not a huge disaster. Turkey's anti-semitism, their weird TV shows and glib leadership, doesn't have the same momentum that you see in Iran. Sure, Turkey's got NATO, but so does Croatia. If Turkey wants to be as casual about its bigotry as Croatia, it's going to have wait for entry into the EU. It will never function under the same license as Croatia.
