Turkish President Recep Rayyip Erdogan. Photo: Wikipedia. – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday reportedly met with several top American Jewish leaders on the topic of ongoing negotiations that may lead to a resumption of diplomatic relations between Turkey and Israel.

Malcolm Hoenlein, vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, along with leaders of other Jewish groups such as the Anti-Defamation League and the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, met Erdogan and Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu at the Cankaya Palace in Ankara, according to Turkish and Israeli media reports.

The Israeli government asked Hoenlein, who is close with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to deliver several messages to the Turkish leaders during the meeting, Haaretz reported.

Turkey and Israel have so far been unsuccessful in efforts to restore their diplomatic ties, which deteriorated following the May 2010 Gaza flotilla incident.

  • Turkey and Israel must have a very good diplomatic ties, it’s very very important for both countries!!! Mr. Erdogan with all respect! I did listen to Erdogan in CCTV interview 2015, I told my self why this intelligent man as Erdogan did let him self to be “ mind split” by the people who did gave the Nobel Peace Price to EU. We no forget that Mr. Erdogan did say load in 2010/11 I guess it was “ That Jews derives from apes” which is actually a stupid thing to say for a country leader! The same words were said by the Egyptian Muslim brother’s of the Arab Spring manipulate machine. This event was for EU Nazis to isolate Israel from the south and from EU Turkey. Norway to day says that Erdogan became a problem for EU. The problem is that the Arab Spring did not reach to goal which was planned by cowards, forgetting that in those countries who were involved in the Arab Spring had not strong organized administrative civil organizations, and therefore to day we live in a terrifying chaos of massive terror worldwide. Now to day Ms. Erdogan knows that he was fooled by EU and wants to come back to the old good days with ISRAEL! Why? Because Turkey got into own country intern troubles which Mr. Erdogan must work hard to restore for peace among man!
    Good luck to you Mr. Erdogan!!!!!
