Turkish date with Limmud

An eye-catching name on the guest list at this year's Limmud conference is Turkish Ambassador to the UK Ünal Çeviköz.

Two years ago such a visit would have been unremarkable but Turkey's spectacular fallout with Israel since the Gaza flotilla incident last year gives it added currency now.

On the subject of Turkey, I note Israel's aid effort after this week's earthquake - and Baroness Tonge hasn't called for an inquiry yet.
