Finally, Israel defeats Turkey diplomatically

Israel handed Turkey a diplomatic defeat on Thursday at the Parliamentary Assembly for the Mediterranean.
An Israeli representative MK Majalli Whbee (Kadima) and a French representative were elected as vice-chairmen on the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean in Morocco on Thursday. Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, thwarted efforts to elect the Turkish representative for the role, and told assembly participants that he would "quit the organization if the Turkish representative was chosen".

Rivlin said that "Israel is a member of the assembly in order to promote cooperation and not so that it would have to defend itself from constant attacks". The Egyptian representative is expected to be elected as the assembly's president.
It's about time someone in Israel stood up to Turkey's arrogance. Two can play this game.

Good for Ruby Rivlin!

Its about time Israel stopped allowing Turkey to push it around.

This is one way to even the score. If the Turks don't like it, they can leave.

Such an important success. If only Israel could understand that there is no game to win or to lose in the first place.

When did Turkey defeat Israel diplomatically? UN reports or international condemnation has meant nothing to the extreme right-wing government in Israel so far, that much we already know. It is like everything is meaningless to Israel unless they score a point "diplomatically"
