The most dangerous nation and threat to the civilised world in the Near East is Turkey. Iran may temporarily have a religious administration, however, the vast majority of Iranians themselves are secular, educated and Western leaning with a sophisticated and ancient culture. The barbaric Turks, however, display a wafer thin 'modernity', but in reality, the vast majority of them are fanatical jihadists. This is the state that Israel chose as a 'friend' and supplied it with advanced weaponry. Is Israel really surprised then by the reaction of the treacherous Turks? Do you think that the Greeks, Armenians, Kurds, Bulgarians, Cypriotes, British, French, Swiss, Italians, Maltese, Hungarians, Austrians etc, all refer to the Turks as barbarians for nothing?
