Davutoglu's new demand

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu has issued a new demand if Israel wants to 'avoid' a new flotilla to Gaza: Accept the Hamas - Fatah reconciliation.
In televised remarks on Thursday night, Davutoğlu said Israel should also lift the blockade of Gaza. “If Israel does not want new aid convoys, it should recognize the new Palestinian administration and lift the blockade of Gaza. Then there will be no grounds for new aid convoys to Gaza,” he told private Ülke TV. “But instead of doing this Israel refuses to recognize the reconciliation deal in Palestine and insists on keeping Gaza under embargo.”

Davutoğlu's remarks came as organizers of an international flotilla prepare to send a new convoy of aid ships to Gaza in June. Last year, Israeli commandos stormed a Turkish ship in a similar flotilla, killing eight Turks and one Turkish American on May 31.

Asked how Turkey would react if a similar tragedy repeats this year, Davutoğlu said the government was assessing every possibility, including the worst-case scenario. “We hope there will be no such situation. We think Israel has enough experience not to repeat a mistake like that,” he said.
He's really out of control.

Turkey is looking for a tragedy waiting to happen.

If it provokes one, Israel should not back down.

End of story.
