Ha'aretz: "Turkey lists Israel as a 'threat to its interests'"

More evidence that the new Islamist Turkey is increasingly hostile to Israel:
A document by the Turkish National Security Council defines Israel's policies as a threat to Turkish interests and policies, marking the first time Israel has been defined a potential threat by Turkey's most important body on national security.

According to the document, Israel's policies are destabilizing and leading to a regional arms race, so they are a threat to Turkey.

"This is not merely another statement by the prime minister or politicians, but a statement that is binding on the security forces," a Turkish source told Haaretz. [...]
Iran's IRIB gleefully picks up this story with the headline "Israel root of all evil in region: Turkey."
