    The present problem with Turkey is entirely "made in Israel". First came the extreme "lesson" to Turkey, putting their ambassador on a "low chair". After refusal to apologize, followed by a Turkish threat to cut relations, the offender Ayalon did apologize., i.e., said that he didn't mean to etc. Turkey remained sufficiently unhappy that they allowed the Mavi Marmara to set sail to Gaza. Nothing illegal but not too friendly either; the Turks actually made sure no hot or cold weapons were smuggled on board. When the ship was stopped on the high seas, taken over, and 9 Turks were killed, the Turks demanded an apology and compensation. No way, Yahoo said, and meant it. Lieberman's excuse was that Turkey had been going Islamic for a while, and problems with Israel were inevitable. Israel simply gave up on Turkey. An astonishing act of irresponsibility. So now we can be paranoid about the Turks too.
