The article describes the political struggles related to the Gaza Strip. It analyzes why Turkey has become associated with the radical Arabs, Hamas, and the call for the legitimacy of Hamas' presence on the Gaza Strip, given the country's failure to become a part of the European Union and the economic benefits of maintaining a trade policy with the neighboring states of the Far East. With this, the West tends to blame Israel for pushing Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to be extreme, while Israel blames it to U.S. President Barack Obama.
