How bad is the Turkish problem that Seth Cropsey writes about?

Allahpundit notes (in a post worth reading in full) that the Turkish foreign minister said today: "Psychologically this attack is like 9/11 for Turkey because Turkish citizens were attacked by a state, not by terrorists, with an intention, a clear decision of political leaders of that state."

And Turkey's prime minister Erdogan said: "This bloody massacre by Israel on ships that were taking humanitarian aid to Gaza deserves every kind of curse."

It seems like it's only going to get worse.
