Israel and Turkey agree to restore diplomatic ties

More than five and a half years after nine Turkish terrorists were killed in a battle with Israeli commandos on the Mavi Marmara, Israel and Turkey have agreed to restore diplomatic ties.

Israel has agreed to set up a compensation fund - unconfirmed reports put it at $20 million - and Turkey will bar Hamas representatives (or at least one Hamas representative) from its borders. The two countries will also exchange ambassadors.

I guess Erdogan is desperate. Really, really desperate.

"Such was his grip on power that only Erdoğan could have destroyed Erdoğan."

Beware: the link is to the Guardian, yet if you keep the usual-suspects bias in mind, the column has truth.

Erdogan will of course scream and flip out day one and demand a gazigatrillion dollars compensation. Then he will threaten to declare war on Israel, arrest 20 or Turkish journalists and so forth.

Declare war on Israel hahahaha. Only if he wants more of a beating than the Russians would give him.

Israel could have had it cheaper if Erdogan is desperate.

Terrorists must be laughing.
