Erdogan: J'lm in danger of losing its closest Mideast ally

Israel stands to lose its closest ally in the Middle East unless it changes its mentality, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned Israel Thursday.
Erdogan argues that "Turkey tried to preserve the relationship, but the Israeli government did not understand this, and performed a historical mistake."
He sharply criticized Israel saying that "violent policies will not bring about a positive outcome. We will not avert our eyes from violence like this."
