Philip Stephens, Financial Times: West must offer Turkey a proper seat

Stephens makes an excellent point in noting that the US - and, for that matter, Israel - has become accustomed to having its way with Turkey, especially during the Cold War and with Turkey's inclusion in NATO.  But Turkey now is reasserting what it sees as its rightful place in the Middle East region.  The US needs to accept that, even embrace it - and if Turkey continues its current tough line against Israel's high-handedness, the US ought to be seeing the writing on the wall and re-evaluate its slavish support for Israel.
