Very simple.  It will be stopped and inspected.  You have a problem with that?






>>>>>>> I hope you are right about this. It would be a huge improvement over attacking and killing (like last time).

Guess row between Turkey and Israel (This time involving American Jewish congress) continues....



He was awarded for peace efforts in the middle east. Now US Jewish congress is asking his award BACK for criticizing Israel!!



Turkey PM Erdogan returns US Jewish award in Israel row


www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-28544391



Turkey's Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is returning an award he received in 2004 from the American Jewish Congress, which has accused him of "dangerous rhetoric" against Israel.


Last week the New York-based lobby group said Mr Erdogan was "inciting the Turkish population to violence against the Jewish people".


It asked him to hand back the award, granted for Middle East peace efforts.


Turkey's ambassador to the US said Mr Erdogan would be "glad" to do so.


Ambassador Serdar Kilic said Mr Erdogan should not be expected to turn a blind eye to Israel's actions in Gaza and the West Bank.


"Attempts to depict Prime Minister Erdogan's legitimate criticisms of the Israeli government's attacks on civilians as expressions of anti-Semitism is an obvious distortion and an effort to cover up the historical wrongdoings of the Israeli government," Mr Kilic said in a letter quoted by the Turkish news website Hurriyet.


Mr Erdogan is campaigning to be elected president next month and has sharply criticised Israel's military offensive against Palestinian Hamas militants in Gaza, where more than 1,100 people have died, most of them civilians.

Oh My God, Israel and Turkey are growing further apart. 


I just can't believe it.     


It is the end of the world.    


I am sure that some people are ecastic over the development.   


And would be very upset in the unlikely event that they will grow closer together in the future. 


I could be wrong.

Israel and Turkey will become closer once Erdogan is a distant memory and the Turks stop funding and arming Israel's sworn enmies, such as Hamas.  The current governemtn of Turkey is pro-terrorist. There is a reason that they will not come to the aid of the besieged Syrian Kurds in their fight against ISIS. Turkey supports ISIS (or at leastr supports ISIS against the Kurds).

The last time, Israeli forces were attacked when they attempted to board and inspect the ship.  Since you just agreed that this is right course of action, they you should be denouncing the crew who would not subject themselves to inspection.

>>>>>>>>> Historically Turkey has been a close ally of Israel. But after murdering Turkish citizens in international water and mass murdering citizens of Gaza, Turkey spoke up against such "State sponsir terrorist operations".


This is why SOME Israelis and SOME Israeli supporters are going after Turkey in recent months.


Actually Turkey has been providing majority of logistical support to those who are fighting ISIS. Turkey primrily helping refugees from Syria (Over 1.5 million people) .

Turkey is NOT America. It has limited resource but last two years it has been steadfast in support to Syrian refugees.

>>>>>>> There are different narratives of the "Story". Even if someone attempts to "Attack" a fully armed solder (With automatic weapon) with some stick, it is probably not good enough reason to kill them.


The flotilla raiders claim, IDF attacked them first and (As they were unarmed) they got hold of a stick (And posed thegravest threat to Israel!!) to defend themselves.


Israel is well known for heavy handed approach when it comes to dealing with non-Jewish people.


Later Israel apologized and I hope they learnt their lesson from this. It is better to pick up the phone and discuss before you shoot someone!!
