Economically, too,Turkey has every reason to mend its ties with Israel. Bilateral trade between the two countries reached $4 billion in 2011, with a clear export surplus for Turkey. That fact, combined with the sanctions against Iran, the Stratfor intelligence group wrote in 2012, means that Turkey can’t afford to turn its back on Israel – one of the few growing economies in the region and the only stable state other than Turkey itself.

But above and beyond those considerations lies Iran.

Barely mentioned, but unarguable, is the fact that Turkey plays a pivotal role in Israel’s air defenses against the Islamic Republic. A NATO radar base in eastern Turkey, established in 2011 and manned by US soldiers, can relay critical intelligence back to Israel.“They (the Turks) have always claimed that Israel is not part of the system,” said Karmon,“but the Arrow, Israel’s defense against Iranian Shahab 3 missiles, is reliant on it.”

Turkey’s main opposition leader amplified this statement in November. Sniping at Erdogan and his wrathful rhetoric against Israel, Kemal Kilicdaroglu noted that if Erdogan truly sought to extract a price from the Jewish state, he would suspend the radar activity in Kurecik.

“Why was the radar station in Kurecik [in the eastern province of Malatya] established? It’s because of Israel’s security,” Hurriyet Daily News quoted Kilicdaroglu saying.“Mr. Erdogan, you are appealing to the Arab League and United Nations to take action for Gaza: Then do it yourself and be an example to the world.”

For Israel that sort of measure would have grave implications. Tellingly, Erdogan, for all his relentless criticism of Israel, never took it.

Why not? Because Sunni Islamic Turkey does not want to see neighboring Shiite Iran armed with the get bomb. It wants to lead the Middle East, not have the ayatollahs doing so.

Turkey may be riding the democracy bus to a dictatorship. It may be advocating for a pale shade of Islamism. But when forced to take sides, between reviled Israel, the US and the West on one hand, and an Iranian Shiite bomb on the other, Ankara seems to have made its choice.

With some prodding from Washington, and a bit of a climbdown from Jerusalem, Erdogan took a reluctant step in the direction of Obama and his new “friend Bibi.”

Isolated Tehran furious as Barack Obama heals Israel-Turkey rift
IRAN has accused Barack Obama of playing "a new game" to isolate Tehran after he brokered a reconciliation between Turkey and Israel last week.
The Iranian government was caught off guard by the US President's diplomatic coup on Friday, when Israel and Turkey agreed to restore diplomatic ties after a three-year dispute. It provides a platform for greater co-operation on Syria, where Iran is propping up the Assad regime with cash and weapons.

Turkey is a key player in the effort to overthrow the Syrian President, and Israel could now be drawn closer into the loose coalition of powers seeking to depose Iran's closest ally in the Middle East.

Voicing Tehran's concerns, General Masoud Jazayeri, the deputy head of Iran's armed forces, denounced Mr Obama's initiative as "a US game to undermine the anti-Israel resistance". Attacking Turkey as a US stooge, he said Washington was seeking to usurp Iran's place in the Muslim world and corrupt the purity of Islam with an "American Islam". Tehran's discomfort will be viewed with some satisfaction in the White House as Mr Obama returned home yesterday following his first visit to Israel last week.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu telephoned his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan to apologise for the killing of nine Turkish peace activists by Israeli special forces during a raid on a protest flotilla to Gaza in 2010.

Intelligence ties between the two nations have remained intact despite the diplomatic freeze.

The US diplomatic push continued after Mr Obama left the Middle East. US Secretary of State John Kerry stayed in the region to try to kick-start peace talks between Israeli and the Palestinian leaders.

"Kerry began the US administration's real intervention," a high-ranking Palestinian official said yesterday. "The US push for finding a solution has begun."

Mr Kerry confronted Baghdad yesterday for continuing to grant Iran access to its airspace and said Iraq's behaviour was raising questions about its reliability as a partner.

Speaking during an unannounced trip to Baghdad, Mr Kerry said he and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki had had "a very spirited discussion" on the Iranian flights, which US officials believe are ferrying weapons and fighters intended for the embattled Syrian government.

Mr Kerry said the plane shipments - along with material being trucked across Iraqi territory from Iran to Syria - were helping President Bashar al-Assad's regime cling to power by increasing its ability to strike at Syrian rebels and opposition figures demanding Assad's ouster.

"I made it very clear that for those of us who are engaged in an effort to see President Assad step down and to see a democratic process take hold ... anything that supports President Assad is problematic," Mr Kerry said at the US embassy in Baghdad after meeting Mr Maliki at his office.

"And I made it very clear to the Prime Minister that the overflights from Iran are, in fact, helping to sustain President Assad and his regime."

Iraq and Iran claim the flights are carrying humanitarian goods, but US officials say they are confident the planes are being used to arm the Assad regime.

The administration is warning Iraq that unless action is taken, Iraq will be excluded from the international discussion about Syria's political future.

Mr Kerry arrived in Baghdad from Amman, where he had been accompanying Mr Obama on his tour of Israel, the Palestinian Territories and Jordan.
