    Israel is indeed much more democratic then Turkey. In Israeli Knesset there are elected Muslims/Arabs. How many Jewish or Christians are in the TBMM? Zero right? How many none Muslims are officers in the Turkish military or employed in a high position in any ministry or similar places? Zero. Recently an Armenian fulfilled all the qualifications for a high post but so far he has not been given the post. You can openly criticize Israel in this Israeli paper. In Turkey the Dogan Media has been fined unfairly 5 Billion (Billion with a B) dollars for being critical of AKP and Erdogan. I can go on an on but I would need an entire page. But don?t worry about Israel?s relations with the west. Remember it was the Israeli help and the Jewish lobbies that persuaded USA to stop the arms embargo to Turkey imposed after 5the 1974 Cyprus invasion
