Admiral Mike Mullen... who is Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was expected to meet Barak at around midday... A military spokesman said the meeting would focus on "cooperation between the two armies and the challenges they have to face," but defence officials quoted by the Jerusalem Post said the two would discuss Iran's nuclear programme and the situation in Syria and Lebanon. They would also discuss the deterioration in relations between Israel and Turkey in the wake of the disastrous naval raid on a Gaza-bound aid fleetTurkey's Erdogan has pretty much singlehandedly fouled up Turkey's relationships with the US, the EU, and Israel, and obviously did so deliberately; he's been building ties with Iran and its proxy terrorist groups in Lebanon and Gaza, and been purging the Turkish military of secularists while conducting a mass-murder operation against Kurds living in Iraq. His "star is rising" (say the op-eds) among the terrorist groups, at the (further) expense of the Saudis and other Gulf states, and even the Syrians. Before anything can be done with Iran, something is going to have to be done with Turkey, in order for Obama to satisfy his Saudi masters.
"Disastrous"? "Aid fleet"? Again the leftist media displays its anti-Israel bias with its perverse use of the language!!!
