    All we ever hear is the GOI and Israelis lashing out at and denigrating an ever-growing list of nations and allies. Anyone who disagrees with Israeli policies and actions - which is just about every country in the world - comes in for the ritual blame transfer and scurrilous attacks that go with the Israeli nationalist psyche. Turkey is a case in point. Israel seems to think it can bomb and kill civilians with impunity in Lebanon, Gaza or wherever and no one will care. Heck they're only Muslims and Arabs, what's the problem? The problem is that the democracies recoil in horror at the harsh, illegal collective military punishment of a civilian population. And any Muslim country is doubly justified in doing so, as it's Muslims who were killed. What possible reason would Turkey or any other country have at the moment to participate in a joint diplomatic, economic, political or military enterprise with Israel? None whatsoever. As you sow, so shall you reap.
