The US is backong out of Iraq and eventually Afghanistan. The best wa yto control the region is its ally Turkey, who can command support and respect of all muslims, not Israel who only alienates them and has proven a one-sided and worthless ally, having only caused spread of anti-Americanism over the decades. If Israel is smart it will not resist this movement because it will result in a more moderate influence over the Islamic world than the Iranian brand it competes against. Erdogan is a visionary.
