Truly a beautiful country. but it was erdogan who made a conscience decision to use the Israeli hate card to build his leadership posture in the Arab world. there was not much we could do to dissuade him. you will remember the embarrassing way he treated Shimon Peres at Davos for no reason. he also does not just demand an apology and compensation for our soldiers defending themselves against a group of armed islamist thugs but also that we open our borders with gaza. so though it may be worth eating some crow even if not fair, it won't help us anyway so long as erdogan maintains his policy of Israel baiting. news says he may be sick with cancer. though i wish him a refua shleima, maybe he should retire to his villa to recuperate.
