The artical is based on wishfull thinking. 3 Smal countrys trying to form alliances to stand against Turkey. A pipeline bypassing Turkey is to costly, and dont forget Turket dont accept the 12 mile rule because its sees this as a reason for war. If the region is ready for war, than soon Greece lose 1/3 of its islands and parts of Thracie. And Cyprus will be a lost game. Israel will be wise and leave this strange alliance in time because it has to lose alot. If Lieberman wasnt there the relationship with the Turcs was not harmed the way after the Marmara incident. The Turcs never hated jews and never will..they have differnces with some of their rightwinged leaders. The Israel leadership knows this. But the Greeks is something new for Israel. The Goldendawn is an exampel of the facistic trend in Greece. They hate turcs, muslims, jews and everything else.. Gog luck with that kind of alliance. The best thing is to form an alliance with Turkey, talk and discuss differnces and accept a market which can help the economy of Greec, Cyprus and Israel. If this means sharing so be it.
thats all
