Calm down Israelis, look at the big picture, and don?t get bogged down in day to day politics! I am a Turkish American Jew. My grandparents and many family members still live and live well in Turkey. Turks are smart; they play the international scene to their advantage without abandoning their historic ties. Turkey was one of the first countries to recognize the State of Israel and now after Ben-Eliezer's visit they have agreed to endorse Israel?s membership of OECD (an exclusive club that normally shuns Middle Eastern countries from membership). In return they want peace in Middle East, so that they can advance their economic agenda in collaboration with other states and they know pretty well that Israel is a key factor in this process. Their objective: to be the 6th largest economy in the world by combining Turkish and Israeli know how with Arab capital. Now do you get it?
