    this is a far reaching dream and shall not come true. Turkey is a strong country shunned by the European union and was denied entry to it. So the only alternative it has is to turn its efforts towards the Arabs/Muslims. Turkey is welcomed in the Arab world many of us have turkish blood running in their veins, as you know Turkey ruled the Arab and Islamic world and blood ties strengthened during that period through mixed marriages. My grand mother from the father side is Turksh, my mother lived in Kotahia/Turkey since she was 40 days age until ten years. The right choice for Turkey is to forgive us and once more become our friend. I do not want to say more because my heart is full with joy for the recnet developments in the Turkish Israeli relations. Thank Avigdoor Liberman and Nitinyahoo.
