Erdogan's Turkey Is Planning a New World Order

(Ha'aretz) Zvi Bar'el - Turkey's aggressive oil exploration in areas of the Eastern Mediterranean claimed by Greece and Cyprus is setting teeth on edge in the EU and U.S. "Coercion, threats, intimidation and military activity will not resolve tensions in the Eastern Mediterranean," State Department Spokesperson Morgan Ortagus said last week. "Ankara must end the cycle of detente and provocation," said Germany's Foreign Minister Heiko Maas. But European states are afraid of a new wave of Syrian refugees that Erdogan can send their way if they impose sanctions. "Turkey is becoming bigger and stronger and its interest fields are growing with it," Erdogan said recently. Whether it's the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the war in Libya and in Nagorno-Karabakh, oil exploration in the Mediterranean, the Kurds in Syria or the defense pact with Qatar, Erdogan promises Turkey will be everywhere and nobody will stop it.
