Are Europe and Obama Finally Cracking Down on Turkey? - The Corner - National Review Online

Are Europe and Obama Finally Cracking Down on Turkey? - The Corner - National Review Online:
"Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his radical Islamic Justice and Development Party have remained remarkably immune from Western criticism, despite Erdogan’s alliance with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s genocidal regime and Turkey’s nautical terror activities against Israel during the Gaza flotilla incident.

But a series of escalating attacks — including a Financial Times report that Obama plans to turn the military-weapons-sales screws on Turkey, as well as last week’s call from German politicians for an international investigation of the Turkish military’s use of chemical weapons against Kurdish rebels — suggest blips of resistance. According to yesterday’s FT, “President Barack Obama has personally warned Turkey’s prime minister that unless Ankara shifts its position on Israel and Iran it stands little chance of obtaining the US weapons it wants to buy.”"
Obama's Muslim allies might not sit still for this.
