    I like it! These remarks by the Turkish leader will go down in history as the turning point for a new middle east. Amazing how clear and unambiguous these statements are - and not so diplomatic - especially coming from a once staunchly silent ally. In comparison to rhetoric coming from Arab leaders - Erdogan is more pro-Arabic than they are. He is making them look foolish. This is a nightmare scenario for Israel - Iran on the rise and Turkey looks inward to its roots - and the old order returns to this region. A pro-Islamic alliance of Turkey and Iran will surely result in rewriting history. Oh well, this 2000 B.C act here is getting tiresome anyway. From an Israeli standpoint it couldn't be worse - and I'm sure the Mossad is monitoring Mubarak's heart rate by the minute. Israeli's don't want to wake up and find the Muslim Brotherhood of Egypt next door. I believe history has it's own plans. Time to worry, nukes are in play. No accident Erdogan raised Israeli nukes as areas of contention. Another matter the old Turkey was silent on for decades.

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
