Israel-Turkey détente – utter folly!

Here is a photo of Bibi in June 2013  sitting in the plane to Poland next to Yuval Steinitz and holding in his hand  The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill: Defender of the Realm, 1940-1965

With all his declarations how he admires Churchill, Netanyahu failed to follow his advice – never, ever give in to dictators.   Would ANYTHING justify this détente with Turkey? Well yes, it would make sense if it helps Israel defend itself against the existential threat coming from Iran. But this deal has nothing to do with Iran, it has to do with money   It is pure folly.
