Israel and France get it but Obama doesn't

On Friday, I reported that Israel has canceled a 2008 contract with Turkey under which it was to sell advanced intelligence systems to the Turkish Air Force. Daniel Pipes regards that cancellation as the end of Israel's military alliance with Turkey, and adds the following comment, which is spot-on (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
It's deeply unfortunate that the vagaries of Turkey's electoral politics permitted an Islamist party to dominate the country in 2002 – but at least the Israelis (and French) recognize this development, unlike the Americans, who persist in thinking all is well. (December 22, 2011)
