1. No way turkey will get iron dome
alexi   (02.07.13)
sensitive israel arms will not be sold to the liars in constantinople, better known as the absolute liars of erdogan and dovotogolu. Even if syria and iran fire short range missiles at you, iron dome will not be for sale. Ask the greeks, the cypriots, the french and the europeans what they think of erdogan.
2. Actually ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.07.13)
The United States is the driving force behind NATO, and the Patriot batteries will be used in whatever fashion and to whatever purpose the United States determines. If the Turks don't like it, they are welcome to withdraw from NATO. They're halfway to being kicked out, anyway. Turkey is Iran's strongest ally in the region -- this is not commensurate with membership in NATO. There are other places to put NATO bases and then Turkey's economy -- which is already circling the bowl -- will be flushed.
3. The US Patriots in Turkey
Syd Chaden ,   Palermo Calif USA   (02.07.13)
I am going to ask my Congresssman and Senators to get the US to require assurances from Turkey that the Patriots will not be used to further the Turkish genocide against the Kurds.
4. Turks: FREE YOURSELVES from the self-ruinous ISLAMISTS.
Jerry ,   The Netherlands   (02.07.13)
5. political stand towards turkey
Charles ,   Jerusalem - Israel   (02.07.13)
Can Someone send a diplomatic message to our turkish neighbours ? That we don't give a dawn about their patriot missile battery and we don't need it. But if there was an other terrible earth quake, I am sure that Israel would take an opposite stand and propose medical/psychological help.
6. Turkey Wants Patriots to Give Technology to Iran, and Hamas
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.07.13)
Turkey does not need the Patriots, The Turkish want to learn the technology to use it against the West. Turkey under Erdogan has become hostile to the West and is becoming more and more an ally of Iran and Islamic terrorist world wide. This is unfortunate, and Turkey should be treated like Iran is and sanctioned for it's murder of Kurds and support of terrorism.
7. They Only Have A Range Of 43 Miles
Tim Upham ,   Tum Tum, WA   (02.08.13)
How can a Patriot missile in Turkey defend Israel? A Patriot missile only has a range of 43 miles. So Turkey can defend its border with Syria, but Israel? Israel has its own Patriot missiles, so let us get real.
8. Why would Turkey protect 'Terrorist Israel'?
Bulent ,   Istanbul   (02.08.13)
There obviously is no reason as to why the Turks who had previously been most welcoming and magninomous towards the Jewish people to continue to protect them against anybody. The ZIonists if unrestrained by moderate Israelis may almost certainly spell the end of that phoney state in the midst of a sea of hatred.
9. Westerners ... rid yourselves of Parasitical Zionists?
Truth ,   Ankara   (02.08.13)
10. #8 Bulent bey
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (02.08.13)
You said Turks were 'most welcoming and magninomous towards the Jewish people' 1. The Murder of dentist Yasef Yahya for being Jewish 2. The murder of Jewish businessman Uzeyir Garih 3. The murder of Israeli ambassador Efraim Elrom 4. The 1955 september 6-7 pogroms 5. 1941 Varlik Vergisi 6. 1941 - 20th draft military service to send Jewish young man to labor camps in Yozgat and Afyon 7. 1935 Kirklareli pogroms. If this is what you mean please stop being 'magnanimous' toward the Jewish people
11. Well said #2 and #6
12. Turkey: whinge, whinge......
It is not the Israelis who are hate filled. It is the fundamental Islamists who are intolerant and hate filled toward everything that is different to their ideology. It is the fundamental Islamists that are the sea of hate. Israel is an island within this sea of hate where tolerance still seems to exist. Not thanks to the fundamental Islamists though. Turkey is very much influenced by the bully Iran. Iran has become their role model. It is very apparent even in the responses to this article coming out of Turkey itself.
13. Weterners-rid yourself of this tukish jihadists
American ,   Los Angeles   (02.08.13)
let erDOG take them back to the stone age.
14. When Erdogan is Gone Turkey Will Become Welcome Again
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.09.13)
Turkey has become a pariah nation like Iran since Erdogan has taken power. Yes, Erdogan has been good for the Turkish economy. No one can deny this, but the educated Turkish person is suffering in Turkey and does not feel free. Erdogan has also made allies with Iran which is setting the state for Turkey to branded and Islamic extremist nation and a terrorist stronghold. Many of my friends are Turkish and they hate Erdogan with good reason.
