There is a clear shift in the Turkish position beyond their relationship with Israel; the military, which has always been a defender of secularism, is being marginalized; Muslim fundamentalism is taking hold; the time when Turkey was a country where, at the universities, the headscarf was at best unwelcome have passed. Erdogan's gestures to Iran and Syria predate the Netanyahu government's slights; Gaza is a pretext. Last year Erdogan slammed Peres at an NGO conference, Peres of all people. Unfortunate but a valuable alliance has ended for now because of Turkey's shift away from secularism; Mustafa Kemal Ataturk is rolling in his grave.
