By the US logic:
-We won't sell air defense to you
-Why did you get air defense from somewhere else?
-Ok we don't want you to buy arms from somewhere else so we won't gonna sell you f35 either.

It doesn't make any sense... UNLESS : it's just "we won't sell you because we don't want you to be armed."

So Greece is allowed to buy the S300 while being in NATO but not Turkey. That's because Israel does not want Turkey to have it.

if nato has no problem with greece having s300 but says that it is a problem that turkey has s400 could it be because they are planning to attack turkey? or is it again double moral standarts becaus turkey is a muslim country? s400 is just to save turkey from missle atacks, are france and greece planing to start a war?

Turkey needed a long range air defence system but Turkey so called NATO allies refused to sell Turkey their Patriots so Turkey turned to Russia.

Turkey is a sovereign state and has a right to but whatsoever it chooses for it's defence.
NATO is a spent force.

Turkey should develop its own long range air defence system so that its not reliant on either America or Russia.

F35 can't fly where S-400 is covering airspace even in ally sky, that system is so advance and capable of gathering all sort of information and tracking and monitoring stealthy planes.
