On the Brink

What was once a west-leaning, European craving, modernized, moderate Islamic state is quickly converting into a Arab/Sharia dominated, radically Islamofacist, caliphate.....kind of like the old Ottoman Empire. Turkey is reverting to its roots! Israel is to the the enemy, not a friend. Biblically speaking, (Ezekiel 38 and 39) the situation is only going to worsen.

Israel and Turkey head for the Brink
Posted by Israel Insider on June 18, 2010

Turkey and Israel have taken steps that redefine their relationship as antagonist heading for the brink of war.
Turkey froze sixteen bilateral agreement and denied Israel the use of its airspace. It vowed to lead an international effort to apply a worldwide boycott and sanctions against Israel.
Israel, for its part, declared Turkey's group Islamic IHH (Insani Yardim Vakfi) -- which enjoys close relations with Erdogan and his ruling party -- to be a terror organization on a par with al-Qaeda. By listing as terrorists the IHH , a key component of Erdogan's pro-Islamic AKK government's support system, Israel defines the group as a target for its covert and military operations and exposes its leaders to retaliation for continuing violence against the Jewish state.
In Washington, early Thursday morning (June 17), Democratic and Republican members of Congress announced at a press conference that there would be price to pay if Ankara continued its hate campaign against Israel and tight ties with Tehran. Rep. Mike Pence, the third-highest ranking Republican, said: "There will be a cost if Turkey stays on its present heading of growing closer to Iran and more antagonistic to the state of Israel.While the House and the Senate are getting ready for an active response against Turkey for its deteriorating relations with Israel, the Obama administration is doing nothing to oppose it. The most prominent member of the pro-Erdogan faction ion the White House is the president's personal adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, who opposes the labeling of IHH as a terrorist organization, DebkaFile reports.
IHH activists were responsible for the violence aboard the Turkish ship leading the blockade-busting flotilla on May 31. Wednesday, IHH headquarters in Istanbul scheduled the launch of an even bigger flotilla for Gaza some time in July. Its new designation empowers Israel's covert agencies and navy to go for its members and ships - at sea and in Turkish ports.
Still hesitant, Israel has started hitting back at Turkey by escalating its military and intelligence responses to Erdogan's provocations. The day before, the level of confrontation was ramped up by several notches in Ankara, when the Turkish Defense Industry Implementation Committee – SSIK, in a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Erdogan, decided to freeze 16 security and military agreements signed with Israel.
They include permission for Israel warplanes to use Turkish airspace and apply to intelligence-sharing arrangements and cooperation in combating terrorism and suspend the longstanding, close military and intelligence cooperation between Turkey and Israel.
The two erstwhile allies are left glaring at each other as antagonists, just one step short of declared enemies.
