Turkey under Erdogan is an enemy of the West and an ally to Iran. Turkey wants the patriots to hand over the technology to Iran. I think this is obvious. Until Turkey is liberated from Islamic extremist rule it cannot be trusted which is sad since Turkey was once a very good ally to Israel and the West.

4. TO NR. 3.
NEVERTHELESS ISRAEL CAN BE CONSIDERED (MORE OR LESS) AS A WESTERN AND DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY. OF COURSE IT IS TURKEY''S OWN BUSINESS TO TRY TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE EUROPEAN UNION AS AN INDEPENDANT AND SOVEREIGN STATE.

Are you under the impression that Turkey is a Western country?
Israel is very much a Western country -- except for those Arabs and Bedouins and Moslems, but, hey, that cannot be helped.
How do you choose to explain Turkey's ongoing march into the clutches of the Iranian ayatollahs?
Here's a news flash. You cannot be both a Western country and a fundamentalist Islamic country. Ataturk recognized that a very long time ago. When are you going to figure it out?
You know what? There are central Asian countries that are absolutely aching to provide a home for NATO bases. How long do you think it will be before most NATO members recognize the value of bases in some of the former Soviet republics and kick Turkey to the curb? And what will you do then?
You know, I was in Iskenderun three months ago. The shipbuilding yards and the drydocking yards are deserted and rotting. A far cry from what used to be, but -- face it -- no one really wants to do business with Turkey anymore. Perhaps you should rethink your growing relationship with Iran .....
Sick man of Europe -- terminally ill, this time. 'Bye.

Oh, doesn't the European Union have enough bankrupt and nearly bankrupt nations dragging it down? Do you realy think it needs to add Turkey to the mix?
The Turks have made their choice. They are looking toward Iran. Not a smart decision, but .... oh well. Sometimes, you simply cannot protect people (or countries) from themselves. Turkey is as dead as a dormouse. Past the point of recovery.

Of course you are right about the European Union. Iam no fan of the EU. If Turkey wants to join the EU, it is their own stupid decision/business. I really want that my country leaves the EU and the Euro(zone).

8. To Sarah B, USA/Israel, at nr. 6, second reaction.
Before I forget, I also share your opinion about Turkey itself. If Turkey joins the criminal regime in Tehran and if Turkey really becomes an Islamic republic, then the situation in Turkey goes from bad to worse, like the rest of the Arab and Islamic world. Then they only can blame themselves.
