Turkey: Israel Must Show It Wants Peace

Over the last two decades, Israel has done everything but give away the store to demonstrate it wants peace...everything short of giving up Jerusalem. It has bent over backwards. Yet each time it has made concessions, the Palestinians have rejected the plan and launched a new round of terror against the Jews. Amazing! Now, the Turks have jumped in to basically accuse Israel of railroading the peace process.

The following is from today's Jerusalem Post.

Israel must take steps to show that it wants a resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said Wednesday.

Speaking during a a news conference with visiting Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh, Davutoglu said the time had come "for Israel to openly display its will for peace if it has it." He did not elaborate.

Before being appointed foreign minister, Davutoglu served as Turkey's top envoy for the Middle East.

Last year, Turkey mediated four rounds of indirect negotiations between Israel and Syria, which broke down at the beginning of Operation Cast Lead in late December. But recent rumblings have suggested that the talks could be restarted in the near future. Last week, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon stated that Israel would be willing to re-enter negotiations with Syria, but only if they came in the form of direct talks.
Turkey shows up prominantly within the Ezekiel 38 and 39 prophecies of the Gog and Magog war. It is called by the name of those that first migrated to the land it now occupies...namely...Gomer and Togarmah. Turkey has been a quasi-ally of Israel for the last decade, but has since begun to turn toward the more radical side of its Muslim heritage. It only stands to reason that Turkey would begin to reject its alliances with Israel and the west. This new challenge is another in a series of steps that demonstrate Turkey will soon join the radical jihadist elements of Iran and Saudia Arabia in standing against Israel.
