Turkey complains, US kicks Israel out of counter-terrorism conference

With Obama meeting with Hamas-linked CAIR hundreds of times, is it any wonder they would kowtow to Turkish demands that Israel be excluded from a conference on terrorism?  The only democracy in the Middle East and the one firmly in jihadist cross-hairs is not allowed to participate in a conference that they above all else should be attending, because of Turkey's demands.

Kamal Attaturk is spinning in his grave about now at how his beloved Turkey has been hijacked by the religion of peace.

US Ousts Israel From Counterterrorism Forum

The United States blocked Israel's participation in the GlobalCounterterrorism Forum's (GCTF) first meeting in Istanbul on Friday, despite Israel's having one of the most extensive counterterrorism experiences in the world.

Israel was excluded from the meeting due to fierce objections by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a Washington-based source toldGlobes news.

According the State Department’s website, the GCTF, which was established in September 2011, aims at “strengthening the global counterterrorism (CT) architecture in a manner that complements and reinforces the CT work of existing multilateral bodies.”

Twenty-nine countries are participating in the GCTF, ten of which are Arab and/or Muslim countries.

"The GCTF sought from the outset to bridge old and deep divides in the international community between Western donor nations and Muslim majority nations. And it has, I think, done that quite effectively," a top US official said at the press briefing prior to the opening session.

Yes it has, and has done so by keeping Israel away from any discussion of their own defense.
