    Turkey is no pointless, internally weak state, like Eqypt or Syria. Although no doubt it is no matched for the high tech Israel, supported to the hilt by US, it will nevertheless be a significant challenge to Israel. Israel, also need to understand by illegally (UN res:242) occupying land it cannot hope to dominate the region, after all who likes Israel in this region. Israel, needs to as why? Israel, will have to give way to Turkey and Iran, both far bigger and critical to the region. This is a fact of life, Israel even with US support as some point must acknowledge and start to act accordingly. After all 4m people can only dominta e the region at gun point for only so long.... fact of life.. and fact of life Palestenians have been treated badly no matter how many puppets US installs in Islamic world, Palestenian cause will remain close the Muslim heart as long as this injustice is undone...All Israle has to do is to opt for a JUST solution. (No histronics about exisitential threat pls, since object of JUST solution is exactly the opposite)
