Israel standing firm against Turkey

With Turkey complaining about Israeli 'state terrorism' in light of the Mavi Marmara incident, for now at least, Israel is standing firm.
Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said unequivocally on Sunday that Israel had no intention of apologizing, and one diplomatic source said Thursday that there were voices inside the government saying that not only should Israel not apologize, it should demand a Turkish apology for facilitating the dispatch of a ship with terrorist supporters who beat Israeli soldiers trying to protect its territorial sovereignty.
All those pictures and videos certainly helped. But will the Israeli government continue to stand firm? Will it take the view that the best defense against Turkish diplomatic tactics is a good offense? Maybe.

A good start is to recall Israel's Ambassador home from Ankara, demand Turkey investigate its own conduct, apologize to Israel for having led the anti-Israel lynch mob, pay Israel compensation for the costs its soldiers incurred in enforcing the naval blockade and demand Turkey break off its alliance with Iran, Syria and Hamas. Israel should not just sit there and take it. Its time to turn the tables on the Turks and hold them fully responsible for the breakdown in relations. This is what any normal, respecting country would do.

What the hell are the idiots in Jerusalem waiting for?
