Two years ago, relations between Israel and Turkey were OK and their military forces even conducted joint exercises, but today, it is clear two former friends are going to end relation. For a moment, imagine that a Turkish military force bordered an Israel ship on high seas claiming that it was bringing supplies to Kurdish rebels in its country. During the boarding, several Israel citizens were killed. It is a 100% certainty that Israel would demand an apology and compensation and would call for an international body to examine the situation. But, this is modern Israel, led by an arrogant group of religious and ideological warriors who can not envision they ever do anything wrong. If problems arise, they are due to anti-Semitism and attempts to destroy the nation of Israel. Several Turkish citizens were killed in the Israel boarding operation. Turkey has called for an international board to investigate the incident, but Israel insists they will conduct their own investigation. If Israel citizens died in a similar incident in any country of the world, Israel would insist upon an international inquiry and would not trust Turkey or France or Lebanon or anyone to conduct an internal study of the problem.
Israel has an appointment with Death and it will do anything in its power to have that meeting. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu offered Israel three options: “either apologize or acknowledge an international-impartial inquiry and its conclusion” or “our diplomatic ties will be cut off.” The real question is how does the Israel population support a government which has created chaos in their international relations?
For God’s sake, accept an international inquiry, and for once, trust that the world is not filled with anti-Semites!
