Israel to Review Arms Sales to Turkey

After yesterdays announcement that Turkey was blacklisting Israel in upcoming military maneuvers, Israel has wisely stated they are going to reevaluate their weapons sales to Turkey. When the Muslim world unites militarily against us, all non-Muslim countries will regret that they sold them even a pistol.

Hat tip to Jihad Watch.

While Israel kept a low official profile concerning Turkey's Anatolian Eagle exercise, several defense officials said on Sunday that advanced weapons sales to Turkey would now be reviewed, and a leading academic expert on Israeli-Turkish relations suggested ending support for Turkey on the Armenian genocide issue in Washington if the deterioration in ties continues.

According to the officials, several Turkish requests are currently under consideration by the Defense Ministry's Foreign Defense Assistance and Defense Export Organization (SIBAT). These will now need to be reviewed due to the change in the diplomatic ties between Jerusalem and Ankara.

The officials would not reveal which new military platforms Turkey had requested.
