Israel can hit back at Turkey by its lobby over the recognition of
the Armenian Genocide, writes famous Turkish journalist and Chief
Editor CNNTurk Mehmet Ali Birand in reference to the Israeli raid on
a flotilla that carried humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.

According to Birand the recent developments may result in a change
of balance in the region with a completely new situation to emerge.

"First of all the two countries became enemies, and Turkey will
continue to consider Israel as an enemy. Even if [Benjamin] Netanyahu's
government outgoes, Turkey will consider Israel as an enemy and will
not forgive it," Birand writes, adding that there will from now on
be some weak points that the Israeli lobby will try to target in an
effort to undermine Turkey's credibility.

"From now on we may come across articles in world media saying
that Turkey has turned its back to the West and has started to be
interested in the Iran-HAMAS-Islam triangle ... studies and reports
will be published over how the Erdogan-Davutoglu tandem is changing
Turkey's line ... and this campaign will be incited by the Jewish
lobby," writes Birand, adding that the same lobby will disseminate
information saying how risky a place Turkey is to invest.

Further Birand mentions that Ankara will have to wait for a Genocide
resolution to be adopted by the US Congress, adding that the Jewish
lobby can easily have success in that issue.
