Regarding ‘EU, US try to defuse Turkey-Israeli tensions‘:
21st-century geopolitics might just be unwinding before our eyes with the watershed politics of the Turkish flotilla to Gaza and its massacre by Israel/IDF.
The level of military and security cooperation between Turkey and Israel hitherto was the envy of regional politics.
Now Arabs can count on Turkey to lead them against the illegal blockade of Gaza by Israel/IDF.
The UN Security Council Resolution will encourage Turkey to demand not only an apology but also for an “independent commission” to investigate the naval flotilla affair and report back to the UNSC – with or without support of declining powers the US and the EU.
EU foreign affairs chief Catherine Ashton is a disaster!
