Today It’s the Golan Heights, Tomorrow It will be Medina

Israelis believe they have never had it this good. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regularly brags about it.

Erdogan’s “Trojan Horse” in Macedonia

Turkey’s President Erdogan makes no secret of his ambition to spread his neo-Ottoman wings all over the Balkans.
