Earlier this week, Turkish media argued, with a frontpage story, that Turkey should sign a maritime deal with Hamas-led Gaza similar to the deal it struck with the GNA in Libya - which contravenes international law. Seth Frantzman joins The Greek Current to discuss this latest report in Turkish media, and explain how such a deal would not only put Israel and Turkey on a collision course, but would also violate the rights of Cyprus and Greece. We also look at the latest anti-semitic and anti-Israel rhetoric coming out of Ankara and Turkish media, which has reached such heights that the US condemned Turkey’s President Erdogan.

Seth Frantzman is a Middle East analyst and the oped editor at The Jerusalem Post, and is a contributor to Defense News and The National Interest.
