The Wrath of Neocon-Jewish Alliance by ALI H. ASLAN

It is this neocon-Jewish joint venture which has to a large extent shaped the US policy on Turkey for many years, with its strong arms in Congress, bureaucracy, trade and think tanks. Many key figures associated with this group were present at the AEI meeting. For that reason, one should consider the meeting important. The neocon-Jewish alliance has been the leading group who kept the positive interest in Ataturk’s Turkey alive in Washington so far, due to their US-Israel focused regional plans and because they are concerned about secularism in Islamic nations. Some, like Richard Perle, were even making money by conducting professional lobbying for Turkey. However, things turned the other way around with the (March 1, 2003) parliamentary motion crisis.
