Turkey: Gaza War?

Turkish Aylin Ece Cicek, writing at The Eastern Middle, discusses the “war” between Israel and Gaza, saying: “Let me elaborate because I am not comfortable with using the word war; but cannot find a more suitable phrase for the situation. The words “issue,” “problem,” or “struggle” just don't fit. It is a war; It is war between culture, heritage, understandings, religion, territory…And it is war that is humanitarianly not excusable.”
