I am not a politician but the Israeli leadership seem unable to leverage Israel power and the facts and legal rights Israel has to the land.

is nothing new under the sun and he is predictable which is a quality. Frankly it is funny that Turkey under the AKP remains a nato ally... Having said that, the other danger to the Israeli democracy and to middle east peace is nutty yahuuu who stayed long enough as pm. He should resign and spend quality time with his gifts and his family. I just hope that the sort of opportunist like bennett wont get elected anytime soon. Sexy Shaked PM.
6. Erdogans poltical gymnastics

As an old Turkey hand..and watcher

Erdogan has recently directed one of the most fundamental changes in Turkeys geo-political position since WW2

A shift of direction away from the EU and N America toward Russia and the Iran/Syria axis

Whilst the Russia/Turkey relationship is solidifying, Turkey is increasingly suspicious and mistrustful of the Iran/Syria axis and Irans possible plans to install naval and missile bases in Northern Lebanon within direct reach of Turkey and North Cyprus

Turkey too seeks to maintain its sphere of influence inside Syria and North Iraq in direct contravention of Irans Shia military and RG who want what they regard as Turkish interference to cease

But that's not all

What is also being played out is the increasing suspicion in Turkey that Iran-Hezbollah are attempting to develop a 5th column of Shia activism (some suggest hundreds strong already) inside Turkey just as they have done in Lebanon, Bahrein, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Yemen, Egypt, Jordan and the UAE..

The feeling from the Turkish Street is 'With friends like them....Turkey doesn't need more enemies'

And whilst Turkey and Israel don't see eye to eye and disagree vehemently on many issues they are far better communicating directly and openly when together than when apart
