"Reconciliation" with Turkey is laziness
At the end of the day, the Israel-Turkey reconciliation agreement boils down to interests -- not trust and certainly not sympathy. This deal will not usher in a new golden age in Jerusalem and Ankara's relations, but it will normalize relations with a major Middle East power.For heaven's sake. "Normalization" is just crap. So long as Islam reigns in Turkey, it'll never truly be so.
Update: here's another op-ed explaining everything. And here's an article explaining why the Jewish Home opposed the deal: because the Hamas isn't going to return the bodies of 2 dead soldiers they murdered, and Turkey's unlikely to persuade them.
