Common Interest?


"The West Europeans contribute to the U.S. efforts to help finance the implementation of Turkish aims in Central Asia. According to senior Israeli officials, Israel has been helping Turkey promote those aims in its own ways... Policy-makers in Israel believe that the U.S., Israel and Turkey have a common interest in establishing a stable regional alignment of secular, moderate and pro-Western regimes in the Middle East. As a recently issued document puts it, 'Israel has an interest in strengthening Turkey for the sake of the common goal of curbing Islamic fundamentalism'".

Israeli newspaper Haaretz's Intelligence correspondent, Yossi Melman, March 12, 1993
