If Palestine become independent, and Kurdistan will become independent.

To not happen this, Turkey and Israel need to become liberal-democratic-neutral-mul ticultural countries as USA, and to be part of eu-nato.

Well... Actually an independent Kurdistan at the northern Iraq serves to the interest of Turkey more than united Iraq... By this option, Turkey may expand its borders through northern Iraq and Syria as a federal state in the future...

What about Turkish Azeris in Iran ? if they become independent then turkey can easily reach azerbijan by land and further isolate amrenian clowns .

As for Iraq if you add al anbar to northern iraq they you will have direct borders with saudi arabia . Al anbar is overwhelmingly sunni state they dont get along with the shiah .

I agree, all these options are on the table, future may be very interesting... It all depends on how Iran will act in the future, however Turkey's foreign policy in the region can not depend on religious sects, no need to lose half of the Middle East people... Further, keep in mind that most of the Azeris are shias...

Azeris dont follow the mullahs in Iran , they have brains .

There was no shiah/sunni problems in the middle east until the emergence of a radical shiah republic in Iran . when iran was secular in the times of shah there was not any problem between shiah and sunni arabs , people did not even know the difference.

Do you know how many shiah and sunni iraqis intermarried among each other prior to iran turning into a shiah theocracy ?

Iran is fueling secteranian conflicts in the middle east, even though saudi arabia has a backward internal system but their government is not fueling sectarian violence , for instance the lebanese civil war was ended by the agreement of taif in saudi arabia where the christians , shiah and sunnis agreed to the terms layed by saudis . The syrian conflict could have been solved peacefully but iran is basically fueling al-assad into a sectarian war .
