    Too many people on this board are turning this diplomat's statements about Turkey into some kind of referendum on Israel. That's typical. Everything is always blamed on Israel, even though in this case, Israel has nothing to do with the situation. It is a pure and simple fact that Erdogan has been pandering to a fundamentalist Islamic constituency as a cheap, cynical way to broaden his power base. Religion is the opium of the masses, and Erdogan is the drug dealer. And, my friends, this observation has nothing whatsoever to do with Israel. Nothing whatsoever. And the fact that people feel a need to force this to be about Israel is a big part of the problem in the Mid East. Everyone simply blaming everything on Israel instead of being honest about the fact that most of the other Mid East countries are not modern democracies. And no, I'm not saying Israel is perfect, and that it doesn't contribute its share to the violence and problems. But, honestly, in reading the entries below, you would think that Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Iran, and others are all bastions of freedom and liberty. But of course, they are not. And guess what.... it's not Israel's fault!! Get over it!!! I always hear people say "I'm not anti-semitic; I'm only making valid criticism of Israeli policy." Well guess what... an American diplomat has done the same to Turkey. Deal with it!!!
