    The European Crusades had collapsed and their last remnant,the Kingdom of Jerusalem was taken over some centuries ago. ince that time till the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, no effective force could enter the M.East (was called Near East until Israel was implented there!) and stay there.The last vawe started with the start of the I.WW and ended a couple of decades after the end of the II.WW; then the "new kid in the block" thought it could take over where the 'old Europe had packed up and run'...Israel is a bastion of this policy and was used and abused by its master since its inception.It has been a forward "asset" but it seems it has now reached its "use by date"... and been slowly "written off".Please those who candidly claim "Mr.Erdogan the islamist is taking Turkey towards Iran,Syria,...the Muslim World" answer this question:if NATO & more so the Americans did not encourage it,not even WOULD but COULD Turkey move to that direction under ANY government and by its own volution?

Israel’s condemnation of Pride attack is hollow

Behind the pinkwashing, it turns out homophobia in its worst forms exists within the government.
