Yaalon: Obama's best friend in the Middle East helping Iran bypass sanctions

President Obama's best friend in the Middle East, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is helping Iran to evade the sanctions that Obama claims will stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.
Turkey is helping Iran bypass the sanctions that have been imposed on it in recent months, Deputy Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon said on Thursday.

According to Ya'alon, who was in the United States last week for talks on Iran with senior officials from the Obama administration, Turkey was helping Iran circumvent the sanctions by allowing it to use its banking system.


Ya'alon also said that Iran and Hezbollah were working with drug cartels in Mexico to learn how to smuggle materials into the US, a conduit that could one day be used to smuggle weapons into the country.

Ya'alon said that the "crippling sanctions" that are being imposed on Iran such as the ban on oil exports could succeed in posing a "clear dilemma" for the regime whether it wants to continue its nuclear program and risk the survival of the Islamic regime or stop and open in dialogue with the West.

Ya'alon said that the West still does not fully understand the severity of the nuclear threat posed by Iran. "America is the larger Satan," he said.
Can you see an American writing an essay some years from now saying "they came for Israel, and I didn't say anything because I wasn't Israel"?

Yes Carl.
But you must understand Obama has a 'relation of trust' with Erdogan.
Perhaps Erdogan knows something we only suspect?
