Turkey summons US ambassador over Rice flotilla remarks

Turkey is getting a bit of an ego.

Israel Radio reports that Turkey has summoned the US ambassador on Wednesday to protest remarks made by US Ambassador to the UN Susan Rice, who said that the UN investigation into the flotilla incident is not a substitute for the independent investigations made by Israel and Turkey. Obviously, Turkey does not want the results of Israel's investigations taken into account.

It is likely that when Prime Minister Netanyahu agreed to the UN investigation, he saw it as something that would review the results of the Israeli investigations and not as a de novo inquiry. Whether he will accept the implicit demand made by Turkey on Wednesday remains to be seen.

Lets hope someone throws a "firecracker"(BBC) at Erdog-scam and succeeds!

The Turks were upset over second Jewish dhimmi Barak's remarks (uncharacteristic of a dhimmi for once) that Turkey may have passed Israeli secrets onto Iran and they summoned the Israeli ambassador in Ankara for a dressing down.

Their ego must be that fragile that they can't handle responsible criticism from any one.
