New Turkish Spy Chief Worries Israel

The appointment of a new head of Turkey's powerful intelligence service is causing concern in Israel because he's a close confidant of Islamist Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan who's seen these days as one of Israel's main adversaries. Hakan Fidan was named chief of the Milli Istihbarat Teskilati, Turkey's National Intelligence Organization, known as MIT, 10 days ago. That was three days before the Israeli navy stormed the Mavi Maramara, Turkish flagship of a flotilla carrying 10,000 tons of humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip, and killed nine pro-Palestinian activists, all Turks.
