Not what the letter says, BDBoy.  Here's the text:



Welcome to Israel,


You seem to have gotten lost. Perhaps you meant to sail to a place not far from here – Syria, where Assad’s army is slaughtering its people every day, and is supported by the murderous Iranian regime.


Here in Israel we face a reality in which terrorist organizations like Hamas try to kill innocent civilians. We defend our citizens against these attempts in accordance with international law.


Despite this, Israel transports goods and humanitarian aid into the Gaza Strip – up to 800 trucks a day. In the past year we enabled the entry of over 1.6 million tons of products, an average of one ton per person in the Gaza Strip. By the way, these supplies are equivalent to 500,000 boats like the one you came in on today…


There is no siege on the Gaza Strip, and you are welcome to transfer any humanitarian supplies for the Gaza Strip through Israel.


Barring the entrance of boats and ships into the Gaza Strip is in accordance with international law, and was even backed by a committee commissioned by the United Nations Secretary General.


If you were truly concerned about human rights, you would not be sailing in support of a terrorist regime which summarily executes citizens in the Gaza Strip, and uses children as human shields…”

The difference being that Gaza is not under siege, but only under a limited blockade which seeks to prevent only certain materials from entering -- namely, those materials which can be used in belligerent violent acts towards Israel.  And, in fact, the letter states clearly that all humanitarian supplies on the boat would be transferred to Gaza.  (There weren't any, of course).

Actually, Erdogan is trying to make some political hay for himself out of the lies that the Palestinians are spreading about the Temple Mount. Erdogan's party is Islamic fundamentalist and like other Islamic fundamentalist parties, it, and Erdogan, thrive on creating religious hatred and hostility.

>>>>>>>>> Atlest he is a fundamentalist not a terrorist. Erdogan is not perfect but he has been able to have speaking terms with Israel, Europe, Arab world, non-Arab world. Which makes his effective in solving many issues.


His support for Syrian refugees is an example. If Turkey kept their border fenced like some European countries and Israel, it would have caused serious security problems for Israel.


Desperate people resort to desperate acts. I hope despite political differences Israel do it's best to keep terms with Turkey.


 While state of Israel offer state support to terrorist settlers who are engaged in criminal acts of violence.

This article refects what Mr. Erdogan called "State terror"( Of Israel)...........



Israel has murdered 2,000 children in the last 15 years. That is cowardly



Dr Kevin McCarthy, referring to the killing of Jewish settlers, Eiran and Naama Henkin, in the occupied West Bank on October 1, rightly states that there is nothing heroic about murdering parents in front of their children.



However, nor are the Israeli occupation forces heroic to murder Palestinian children and adults, an everyday practice that has escalated in recent weeks. In fact, since 2000 Israel has murdered 2,000 children (an average of one child every three days), including a schoolboy shot dead a few days ago.


As an Israeli-Jew who supports the Palestinians’ right to self-determination, I agree with Israeli journalist, Amira Hass, when she writes in Ha’aretz ( October 7) that Israel’s PM, Binyamin Netanyahu, is intensifying the war against the occupied Palestinians, in East Jerusalem and the West Bank, with orgies of collective punishment.


When Dr McCarthy claims that Netanyahu offered to open negotiations with the Palestinians “without pre-conditions”, he does not mention that these talks would not discuss the illegal annexation of East Jerusalem, the illegal settlements, Israeli control of the Jordan valley and the right of return for refugees, and would not refer to international law.








Indeed, Netanyahu’s top diplomat said that “[Handovers of] Judea and Samaria aren’t even on the list of options we’re offering the Palestinians”. The recent escalation clearly aims to disconnect Jerusalem from the rest of occupied Palestine and provoke a third intifada, which would provide an excuse for Israel to annex the West Bank and attack Gaza yet again.





The war in the West Bank, at present, did not start with the killing of Jews and will not end when no Jews are murdered. Palestinians are being killed and injured all the time, and in the past few days we have witnessed the murder by the Israeli military of three young boys and one young girl, all unarmed. One was killed while being chased by a Jewish mob calling for his death, in full view of video cameras.


According to the Red Crescent, at least 1,289 Palestinians have been left wounded in clashes with the Israeli occupation troops across the occupied West Bank and Jerusalem, and, inside Israel, Palestinian activists planning demonstrations have been arrested. While Palestinians are fighting for their lives, we Israeli Jews, Hass writes, are fighting for our privilege as a nation of masters, our privilege to maintain the occupation.


Hass also reminds us that young Palestinians do not go out to murder Jews because they are Jews, but because Israelis are their occupiers, their torturers, their jailers, the thieves of their land and water, their exilers, the demolishers of their homes, the blockers of their horizon.


Desperate young Palestinians are prepared to risk their lives because the enemy they are fighting proves its limitless malice daily.


Even the language used by the Israeli media is malicious: while Jews are murdered, Palestinians are killed and die. This makes Israelis and their supporters, Hass writes, unable and unwilling to comprehend the world war they are conducting to preserve their superiority. Dr McCarthy will benefit from remembering that the goal of Israel’s unilateral war is to force the Palestinians to give up their national rights to their homeland.


Netanyahu wants escalation because he knows from experience that further erosion of the Palestinians’ rights adds privilege to the Jews in Greater Israel.

Turkey is still hosting "Gaza flotilla event" to remember those who lost their lives.



At the same time he is re-starting "Normalization" with Israel.
