    Israel's per capita is 3x that of Turkey.

    Israel has produced 6 Nobel Prize winners. Turkey, not one.

    Israel has more high technology companies listed on NASDAQ than any other country, except, the US.

    Turkey has not one.

    Turkish Islamists: Advocates for Iran, Enemies of Secularists and Minorities

    Turkey under the Islamist rule of the Justice and Development Party [AKP] is moving faster toward the embrace of Iran, while further alienating its domestic secularists and large religious and ethnic minorities. AKP prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and president Abdullah Gul serve as allies and accomplices of Tehran's dictator, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and his own clerical backers, as well as of Hamas in Gaza. But radical Islam at the helm in Turkey has also increased the country's internal polarization.

    At last week's UN General Assembly, Turkish president Gul held a closed-door meeting with Ahmadinejad just as the Iranian demagogue was preparing to disgracefully accuse the U.S. of culpability in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Gul flattered the Iranians while speaking out for Hamas in a Washington Post interview.

    The boldness of AKP advocacy for the Tehran clerical regime, however, has been paralleled by major internal institutional and political changes, mainly through plans to revise the national constitution. Secularists and minorities fear that new constitutional reforms will further embolden the AKP in its movement toward a "shariah state."

    Turkey's voters approved a package of amendments to the country's secular constitution at mid-September. The future of Turkey's most ardently secular institutions, as well as its minority constituencies, hovered over the political confrontation: the judiciary and military feel threatened, along with non-Sunni Alevi Muslims and Kurds. The referendum "reformed" the Constitutional Court, which may open the way to further Islamist legal measures, and has lifted immunity from prosecution of the leaders of Turkey's last full-fledged military coup, which took place in 1980.

    Turkey has been an Israeli ally since 1949, until the Islamist troglodytes came to power in 2002. Turkey and Israel even conducted joint military maneuvers.

    Actually, Israel retains a good relationship with the Turkish military, who were in Israel, recently, for training on Israeli-supplied military equipment.

    Now, Turkey is descending into the Islamic abyss. Ataturk is spinning in his grave.

    Many member nations have committed or been complacent in genocide:

    France: Rwanda, Algeria
    Germany: Nazi Holocaust, German South West Africa
    America: American Indians (but you could say this was initiated by the European powers), Philippines, East Timor (before it stopped the Indonesians doing it)
    Turkey: Armenian, Assyrian, Kurdish, Greek
    Britain: India, Ireland
    Belgium: Congo
