Time to come home

Gabby Levy, Israel's ambassador to Turkey, was not invited to the iftar fast- breaking dinner held by Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan in Ankara on Thursday night (Hat Tip: Joshua I). It's not clear whether Levy was the only ambassador not invited, but we do know that he was invited last year.
“No invitation has been sent to us,” private broadcaster NTV quoted Israeli diplomatic sources as saying. Levy was invited to the traditional iftar last year. The failure to extend an iftar invitation to the Israeli envoy comes in the wake of strained relations between the two countries since the Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound pro-Palestinian flotilla that left nine people dead May 31.

The Turkish prime minister was expected to deliver a speech at the dinner which was to be attended by Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu and chief EU negotiator Egemen Bağış.

In the meantime, some news reports said the Israeli ambassador would also hold an iftar dinner, but it was not yet clear which ministers he would invite.
It is long past time to bring Levy home. There is no reason for Israel to suffer one indignity after another, especially when it is quite clear that Turkey is lost to Iran's orbit. Why do we keep deluding ourselves?

You wonder why the Stupid Jews in Jerusalem keep up with the pretense Turkey is still a friendly country. Even chief dhimmi Jew Netanyahu is posting a call to Athens.

Now when will the rest of the Israeli government follow suit and recognize reality?

At least the article to label the terrorists as activists. I can not even tell you how upset I get when they call them activists.
