Despite the fact that the president, prime minister and other members of the Turkish Government have repeatedly stated their opposition to the State of Israel and its government, many of the leaders of the Western world still are trying to perpetuate the image of Turkey as Israel’s ally and friend.
Some justify their actions by saying that Turkey is a counterbalance to Iran in the region. Supposedly the spread of Turkish influence counteracts the aggressive Iranian influence in the region.
These people think that the expansion of Iranian-Shiite power in Syria, Egypt and other Islamic countries is more dangerous than the Islamization of Turkey and the transformation of that country into an aggressive Sunni-Muslim state with ambitions of hegemony in the region.
Flirting with Turkey on the part of NATO and its allies only strengthens the position of that country in the region, but it may not reduce Iran’s role; rather, it could have just the opposite effect.
Moreover, it is more and more evident that the supposedly moderate Islamic countries and their leaders are using the words Israel, Jerusalem, and Jews more often in their statements, and certainly not in a positive context.
There are frequent meetings of the foreign ministers of Iran and Turkey. The leadership of those countries sometimes criticize each other, but afterward they are reconciled. But there is an increasing number of economic agreements involving these countries, increasing their economic and military potential.
The relations between Islamic countries and their leaders are similar to the relationship of lovers who sometimes quarrel with each other, but really love each other and will do anything for the sake of their loved one.
The Turks are trying to consider the interests of Iran, Syria, Egypt, and the Palestinian Authority, and to counter the influence of Iran in Azerbaijan and the northern Caucasus. Some countries enjoy the protection of both Iran and Turkey.
This “love couple” — Erdogan and Ahmadinejad — are synchronized in most areas of foreign policy.
By establishing close political and economic ties with their neighbors, thus creating around their own countries fertile ground for development, Iran and Turkey have laid the foundation for their possible dominance, and not only in the Islamic world.
And God forbid if Iran’s nuclear bomb project comes to fruition. This would be the fruit of the devil’s love. One of the parents is well known: the terrorist and killer Ahmadinejad. The other parent can be considered to be the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, who so passionately and fervently aspires to the throne of the Caliphate.
Other Islamic leaders want to become parents, too.
In general, leaders of Islamic countries compete with each other on whose hatred for the state of Israel is stronger. And it’s not politics. They were engaged in politics when they swore friendship with Israel; now they’re saying the Islamic truth. Hatred toward Israel, Jews and non-Muslims is their faith.
