It is just a matter of looking at their borders. The Greeks, Bulgarians and Armenians historically hate them. The Kurds are on their way to another uprising. Syria are in chaos. Iran is trying to dominate the Middle East. Iraq is fragile. Turkey is making no friends in Europe with its stance on Cyprus. The Americans are getting inpatient with the Turks repeatedly spitting on them. All Russian governments have historically competed with Turkey for influence in the North Caucus and continue to do so in the Armenia/Azerbaijan dispute. Turkey has burned too many bridges. At some point it will realize that it needs friends and allies in the region and Israel is the strongest state that isn't in competition with Turkey for dominance in the Middle East. Erdogan is a fool. He too shall pass.
