Whoever Says Relations With Turkey Are Getting Better Are Just Plain WRONG

Turkey is, once again, making it's stance very clear. Formerly, that stance was quite pro-Israeli. In fact, it was the most pro-Israeli of any Muslim country. That changed dramatically this past October when Turkey began to court a relationship with Iran and the extreme side of Islam.
Now, a gauntlet has been thrown to the turf.
From today's Jerusalem Post..........

Turkey warns IAF Against Using Airspace

If Israel were to violate Turkish airspace in order to conduct reconnaissance operations on Iran, Ankara's reaction would resemble an "earthquake," Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in an interview with Egyptian journalist Fahmi Huwaidi published Thursday morning.

Responding to a question concerning rumors that Israel had entered Turkey's airspace for espionage purposes, Erdogan said that such a thing had never happened, but that the consequences would be dire if it did.
"[Israel] will receive a response equal to that of an earthquake," he cautioned, urging Israel's leaders to refrain from "using the relationship they have with [Turkey] as a card to wage aggression on a third party."
Ankara would not be a neutral party and stand aside with its arms folded, he said.
Of course, the "third party" mentioned is Turkey's new best buddy, Iran! The way I see it, the Ezekiel 38-39 Magog Coalition is now solidly formed, locked, and loaded. (Gomer, as mentioned in earlier posts is the people group that inhabited the land mass that is today modern Turkey.) All that awaits is the Lord's setting of a hook! With that thought, try this news item on for size.
If attacked, Iran Wants Syria to Hit Back at Israel...
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report
December 10, 2009, 5:16 PM (GMT+02:00)

DEBKAfile's military sources report that this message Iran's defense minister Ahmad Vahidi brought to Damascus where he is attending a session of the high Iranian-Syrian defense committee which went into its second day Thursday, Dec. 10. Syrian defense minister Ali Habib is in the chair.
The Iranian visitor indicated that Tehran expects an Israeli attack within a month. According to Iranian intelligence, Jerusalem will take its green light from President Barack Obama's forced admission after Christmas that his policy of dialogue and stiffer sanctions have failed in the face of Tehran's rejection of the international proposal to send its enriched uranium for overseas processing.
"The countdown for war is coming close to its end," said Vahidi to the joint defense committee. " And we must get our strategic partnership in shape ahead of time."
The leitmotif of the Iranian defense secretary's talks in Damascus was the fate Iran and Syria share and their strategic partnership as the only safeguards against what he called "'American-backed Zionist aggression." Syria must commit itself to joint military action against Israel, because “stronger defense ties between Iran and Syria are elements of deterrence in confronting the Zionist regime's threats to the countries of the region.”
For the first, time, Gen. Vahidi openly threatened to respond to a possible Israel attack on Iran's nuclear facilities by striking Israel's "chemical, microbiological and banned nuclear weapons" production sites.
His message brought forth a tepid Syrian response: The Iranian news agency IRNA quoted Syrian Secretary of Defense Ali Habib as commenting early Thursday, December 10, that an attack on Iran by any party would be deemed an attack on Syria and draw commensurate retaliation.
Looks line a good-sized hook to me!
