    It seems if logic is used by the israeli government, they will know that the emerging Middle Eastern power economically, politically and militarily is turkey. Not to mention that it follows the best model of governance in western eyes as a muslim country which the west and the US specifically wants all arab countries to follow at this critical stage. Netanyahu should realize this and mend fences with turkey and use it well as a bridge to Arab and Islamic countries instead of continued arrogance and hallucinating about everlasting american and western support which is waning during this financial crisis and the emergence of new competitive powers especially BRICS and China as a potential super power. The aforementioned rising powers and the arab spring are changing the middle easts geopolitics; Wake up Netanyahu!!!
