    Besides Turkey, there are 3 notable actors in Eastern Mediteranean:

    - Egypt
    - Israel
    - Greece

    Their GDP combined makes nominal output of Turkish economy, whilst Turkey is competing each year with China for the title of G-20's fastest growing economy.
    Simple as that.

    The Levant's direct northern neighbor (Turkey) has twice the nominal economic output of the Levant, which consists of

    - Israel
    - Jordan
    - Lebanon
    - Palestine
    - Syria

    All whilst Turkey is competing each year with China for the title of G-20's fastest growing economy.

    Israel's per capita income is twice that of Turkey

    Israel has 120 technology companies listed on NASDAQ. Turkey, not one.

    Israel has produced 5 Nobel Prize winners for advances in science, mathematics and economics. Turkey, not one.

    Israeli Teva is the world's largest generic pharmaceuticals company, market capitalization $40 billion.

    Israel receives more venture capital invested in its economy, per person, than the US, Europe and Asia.

    Important US technology companies such as Intel, AMD, Cisco, Microsoft, Motorola and IBM have established key R&D centers in Israel, often their first outside the US.

    Israeli Iscar was the first company outside the US Warren Buffett purchased, for $3 billion. He has called Iscar the best-managed company in the world.

    Let's add Iran and Israel to the game...

    - Israel
    - Iran
    - Lebanon
    - Syria

    combined are 11 Billion $ smaller than Turkey's nominal economic output.

    Turkish Air Force - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Each year passing the disparity in national power between Turkey and its neighbors is going to rise.

    It was in the past during the Ottoman's golden era.

    Wouldn't entirely surprise me if Turkey once again became a major player.

    That was the Ottoman Empire known as the sick man of Europe and that lost WW I and was responsible for the genocide of 1 million Armenians. :

    Some things never change with the Turks

    It sucks every minute of every hour of every day that the infidel Jew is superior to the muhammdan loser.
