Lies of Erdogan

Of course, I never trusted Erdogan and I never trust Islamists (Sunni and Shi`ite alike before the sectarian traders jump in).  Erdogan used to say that he won't resume relations with Israel unless Israel fulfills several conditions including an official apology and an end to the siege of Gaza.  In reality, the Israeli apology was in fact casual and not official according to diplomatic norms (and was not even offered before the cameras), and the siege of Gaza has not even been reduced.  I used to tell people: I believe Turkish rhetoric when the secret military-intelligence agreements between Israel and Turkey are terminated.
