Turkish 'normalization' on ice?

Greetings from somewhere over the Pacific coast - I'm flying from Los Angeles to San Francisco.

As I'm sure many of you have heard already, a suicide bomber killed three Israelis in Turkey on Saturday in an attack that may or may not have been directed at Israelis in Istanbul (Prime Minister Netanyahu believes that Israelis were the intended targets).

Now, that 'normalization' of relations with Turkey that's been on the table may be on ice:
Fat chance that will ever happen.

First, define "normalization" in Erdogan's Turkey.

Ataturk once charged the military with defending the secular Turkish State. Today, you'll find Kemal Urinal Traps(TM) in the General Staff building's men's rooms.

This is a totally new Turkey. Even if Erdogan gets hung from the heels in an ESSO petrol station, it will not go back to what it was.
