President Obama has awarded a kind of most-favored-nation status to the Islamic government of Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, pushing at the outset of his first presidential term for a And the seeds of Obama's erratic and misguided Middle East policies can be partially situated in this desire to court Erdogan as a responsible leader ...

He is in self destruct mode and he most probably will take the lot out with him.
Being a conservative muslim and playing a democrat seems to be taking a very heavy toll on his conscience.

Hey Dingokid!
Is all well Downunder?I hope so...you have nowhere else to go you know...
Joking aside,I agree with your assessment of the Virtual Khalifat
Erdogan not playing with full deck anymore..
AK was a hope for the economy since all the Arab money is in TR now instead of the West etc..but this comes with the attachment of religious overtones over the whole country and the Republican Turks detest it with a fervour akin to detesting the Armenian Diaspora-joking again!-
His sidekicks started talking about segregating boys from the the girls in education-similiar to what happened in the 15th Century Arablands..This is not acceptable to more than half the Turks and this`ll eventually be his demise from the office,which may be soon,yet he`s a shrewd politician and may survive against all odds.
In the final analysis though this is clear;Turks shall never be slaves to religion,ever!Erdogans shall come and go for a while yet but at the end the common sense and secularism shall prevail.

My crucial challenge still stands;
Either a true muslim or a true democrat he is obliged to come out with the goods in condemning the Fake Jihadist IT turk crime of Genocide and crimes against humanity.
Otherwise he is considered as condoning all these crimes which seems to be witnessed in Syria with his support for the Jihadist criminals.
TR is clearly at cross roads of civilizations and we soon will see which direction she will be headed.

The anti-Turkish words of a pro-Israeli blogger at NRO should not be surprising with the emergence of a new era of contentiousness between the two states.

Only 5-10 years ago, Israeli and Turkish heads of state where doing smiling photo opps. Then the anti-Muslim Netanyahu and rather fundamentalist Erdogan needled each other, and things went from bad to worse.

Those who have the best interests of Turkey and Israel in mind hope one day for the warming of relations. Both states would make excellent trading partners, if they can both succeed at marginalizing individuals who put their religion and intolerance of others, who have no place in government or the diplomatic corps. Humanity would be better off without superstitious belief systems (religions) at all, but they have no place in international relations or in government.
