Turkey's Jerusalem consul general gets a 'promotion'

Turkey has given its consul general in Jerusalem a 'promotion.' They have named Şakir Özkan Torunlar ambassador to 'Palestine' (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
Turkey’s consul-general in Ramallah, Şakir Özkan Torunlar, will present credentials to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, a Turkish Foreign Ministry official told Hürriyet Daily News today.

Ankara’s move parallels Turkey’s support of Palestine’s bid to join the United Nations as a non-member state, the official said.

Noting that Ankara recognized Palestine as a state many years ago, the official said that according to the latest upgrade, Torunlar will be appointed to the “Palestinian State.”

Torunlar met with Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki in Ramallah and pledged to work to enhance cooperation between the two states.
Gee, maybe Hamas and the IHH can cooperate on developing terrorism tactics.

What could go wrong?

Why not expel him and tell him to set up shop in Ramallah.
