1. Bring the Ottomans back to Israel, Turk NATO troops horizon!
David P. ,   Capitola, CA   (09.01.10)
Israel is digging itself deeper hole by allowing for foreign NATO troops to eventually occupy the border region with the land!
2. Turkey
MKL ,   U.S.A.   (09.01.10)
Why sell arms to Turkey when it is written in the Bible that Turkey will come against Israel in the future. The fact that Turkey has sided with Iran and Syria on issues concerning Israel should be enough warning of what is to come.
3. #2 MKL
shlomo ,   USA   (09.01.10)
Written in the Bible? Show me where! I think you are either reading the wrong book or the translation to English is fabricated.
4. ... military exercise off if Israel not in ,...
split ,   usa   (09.01.10)
Great !!! Waste of money anyway ,...
5. If Turkey were smart, they would wait..
Mahlon Drumgoole ,   Newark NJ USA   (09.01.10)
until after the Nov. elections in the US. At that point, the US will glady schedule joint maneuvers with the US and exclude Israel because Obama and Hillary won't have to worry about pro-Israel voters defecting from the democrats. Turkey, under Erdogan, is a vicious enemy of Israel.
6. To: No. 4
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.01.10)
You are SO right! Why should Israel waste all that fuel teaching U.S. and Turkish pilots how it's done?
7. Time to dump Turkey
M Carr ,   Baltimore   (09.01.10)
It is clear Turkey has joined the Global Jihad and it mystifies me why the US feverously chases after them. The Turkey that was once a reliable ally is gone and has been replaced by the newest member of the growing caliphate. The US needs to face the fact that this is a dangerous new era and no Muslim nation should be trusted. In the advent of another war between Israel and Muslims, the US will give our usual support to our Israeli allies which will invariably inflame the passions of the Muslim Turks. Turkey has a growing track record of stabbing their “friends” in the back.
8. #3 Shlomo
David ,   USA, exile   (09.01.10)
Try Yechezk'el 38-39. As for interpretation, try doing it yourself from the Hebrew. You should find the answer that way.
9. Is Turkey run by modern Turks or Islamic Ottoman Jerks?
Yaniv ,   Israel   (09.01.10)
10. :: You should know the answer - #7
Matty Groves ,   Fairport   (09.01.10)
The US headed by a closet Muslim in Chief is also in the process of becoming part of the Caliphate or at least that's what this foreign born arrogant son of H. Obama Sr. adopted by Ann Dunahm thinks.
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (09.01.10)
To me.It was just a notification to the Turkish counterparts of USA's decision not to participate if Israel was not invited.Anyway, as usual,Sarah uses the back door method of suggesting that the Israeli pilots would be sharing the secrets with their USA pilots.I don't know where she picks these rubish from.But let it go as no excercises will take place.
12. # 6 - Teaching what ? ,...
split ,   USA   (09.01.10)
How to fry defenseless woman and children with phosphorus bombs ? ,.
13. To: M. Carr at No. 7
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.01.10)
Exactly. Turkey is backpedaling as fast as their unimportant little legs can carry them. They blew their shot at joining the European Union; they are going to get themselves kicked out of NATO. Good-bye Caliphate; hello sick man of Europe. Terminally so. Sweeeeeeeet .....
14. To: No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.01.10)
How long have you resided in the UK? Your English is positively atrocious. That said -- front door; back door -- it doesn't matter. What you need to do is worry about whatever family you have left in Iran. By spring, Iran will be part of the rubbish heap of history. As salaam aleikum, Mahmoodeleh.
15. to #12
Belal ,   Atlanta USA   (09.01.10)
you are right #12. that is all what Israel is good at through out the whole conflict. killing more and more civilians. there have never been a real air force cabable to confront the advanced Israeli air for to do the real test..
16. Agreed, Sarah
Cameron ,   USA   (09.01.10)
Y'all are the acknowledged best at aerial bombardment & the wrecking of infrastructure. To learn such skills, one must occasionally sit at the foot of The Master, and learn the way of it.
17. Go Ahead, Push Turkey Out Of NATO
World Citizen ,   the world   (09.01.10)
The Russians would love to bring Turkey under their protective shield and throw the Americans out of their air force base in Turkey. Leave it to the Americans to do stupid things just to please Israel.
18. Public opinion
Olavi ,   Espoo, Finland   (09.01.10)
Turkey cannot ignore its public opinion. The same is in US. Economically US is on weak ice. Weapons are sold everywhere in globe, especially in Asia. In 5 years they match US weapondry.
19. I know Israeli people are angry with
Monastras ,   Istanbul   (09.01.10)
Erdogan and the current government of turkey . we many turks are also very angry with him but we must be realistic. 1 turkey isn't going to iranian side which never has happened 2 turkey will not fight against israel in the future as it doesn't make sense 3 you will hear more comment in turkey in the future in regards to the middle east whether or not erdogan holds power 4 people of turkey do not trust iran , syria, russia and act together this is a firm and clear information from turkey. read these from time to time and look at what is happening 4
20. Good!!!
peter vojta ,   czech republic   (09.01.10)
Good, Turkey should hold regulary military games with Iran and China perhaps even Pakistan...for prevention of comming treats from Israel..
21. To: Cameron at No. 16
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.01.10)
Yeah. Sure beats the hell out of carpet bombing the living daylights out of civilians (Kosovo .... Afghanistan .... Iraq). Makes one wonder how we'd do at emulating Hiroshima and Nagasaki. What say ye, Cameron?
22. To: No. 17
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.01.10)
Predictably stupid. Who needs bases in Turkey when you have them in Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kazahkstan, Armenia and Azerbaijan? To name but a few. Duh.
23. Sarah,If spring doesn't work out with iran,how about summer
Mark ,   Netherlands   (09.01.10)
Or winter? Maybe during fall?? Last I remember you were always making predictions on iran being bombed by the end of last summer. Keep it up.
24. YNET: Post # 10 is the work of our resident imposter.
flyingdoc57 ,   Florida, U.S.A.   (09.01.10)
Mr. imposter, you fool NO ONE. Everyone here knows Matty Groves is a rabid anti-semite, and Muslim-lover. She would NEVER write anything derogatory about our "Muslim in Chief". You are having quite the busy day here today, aren't you? You've already posted dozens of fraudulent postings under the usernames of regulars including SarahB, Gee, Matty Groves, Cameron and me (flyingdoc57). Do you REALLY think we can't tell real from fraud. Take a hike, you loon. YNET: Why do you continue to post this scumbag's comments? Tag this juvenile delinquent's IP address, and censor him already. Enough is enough.

Or to BBQ civilians ??? ,...
26. spilt usa
Without Israeli Air Force participation in the manoeuvres it is indeed a waste of money and time , U.S.A is smart enough to cancel and a massive lose to turkey.
MAHMOOD ,   LONDON-UK   (09.01.10)
As she herself doesn't know much but is making sure to draw attention like her puppets in Washington.In fact I suddenly realise the change in the seasons through her talk-back.Mark,she wasn't there in Israel during summer,though.:)
28. To: No. 25
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.01.10)
Just like what the U.S. did in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, right? Not to mention Vietnam (remember napalm?) Don't throw stones, mameleh; you live in a glass house.
29. To: No. 23
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.01.10)
We'll see. Nothing wrong with giving diplomacy a chance. Which is not the same thing as taking the military option off the table. It's real, and it's out there. Iran as a nuclear power represents an existential threat to Israel. Don't think we cannot do it; do not think we wouldn't.
30. we know that many turkish are moderate
dovdevan ,   ashdod,israel   (09.01.10)
there are lots of people against the radical islamist . there are people who wants to stay on the european side and going back to the stone age with a religious state
