The Economist is a centre-right, economically liberal, socially conservative magazine whose allegiances have little to do with religion, ethnicity or tradition and have everything to do with promoting the interests of global capital, because of (or despite) being part-owned by the Rothschild family. What they are reflecting is a watershed in the attitude of western capitalism towards the Israeli-American concensus on Middle Eastern affairs.
The IDF action in International waters on Tuesday morning may have a significance greater than it merits by having triggered the shift that makes western liberal capital flee from associations that damage the perception of its values across the World. I don't say this with any certainty, but when a publication such as The Economist begins to eschew that Israeli-American axis, you can be sure that a significant stream of global capital is thinking similarly.

Now we have a NATO "ally" siding with terrorist enema's, or at a minimum unable to differentiate between a terrorist and non-terrorist organization.
All intel to Turkey should be cut off immediately, or they should be fed false info to see what comes of it.
I hope Europeans get a shot of sobriety and find other vacation destinations other than Turkey.
The only way to make them wake up is to hit them in the pocket book.
My bet is it will be barely reported.
I wonder... would this have happened under Bush?
I highly doubt it.
But... given the opportunity with a weak president, they have to seize the moment... now!

Hamas is a popularly elected political party. To say that it is simply a "terrorist organization" is simplifying to the situation to a ridiculous extent. Life isn't that simple, no matter how difficult it is for you to deal with it.
