They've got to be kidding: Turkish prosecutor wants Mavi Marmara raid soldiers' names

A public prosecutor in Istanbul has asked for the names of the IDF soldiers who were involved in the raid on the Mavi Marmara last May.
In a two-page letter, the Istanbul Public Prosecutor's Office sent the request as part of an ongoing court case investigating the May 31 flotilla raid, the report said.

The letter demanded the names and contact details of IDF soldiers and officers who were involved in the raid. The letter also demanded that an official copy of information and documents related to the incident be sent, according to the Turkish paper.
Good luck with that. The Turks don't know when to quit.
On Wednesday, a bipartisan group of members of Congress sent a letter appealing to the Turkish government to prevent a second flotilla from sailing to Gaza this June.

“We write today to express our serious concern over reports that the so-called Free Gaza Movement and the IHH are planning to send another flotilla to Gaza in the coming weeks to provoke a confrontation with Israel,” the members wrote in the letter.

“We ask you to help discourage these efforts and work with the Israeli government in a productive way as it continues to allow legitimate aid, but not weapons, to enter Gaza.”

The letter continued by stating that “Israel, like any country in the world, must take whatever steps necessary to protect its citizens and that starts with preventing additional weapons from entering Gaza. If flotilla organizers carry out their confrontational plans, the Israelis will have little choice but to board the vessels and search for weapons.”
If they do it again, maybe Congress will recognize the Armenian genocide.

Still waiting to hear from my Turkish readers why this is considered normal behavior. Heh.

Can't remember where I read this (sigh), but apparently the UN inquiry will be releasing their findings on the Mavi Marmara incident shortly. And they find that Israel's actions were NOT illegal. So Turkey, who insisted on this inquiry, are now preemptively refusing to accept its results.

Of course its not normal behavior.

Turks are Muslims, and therefore they will behave like Muslims. Hence the cozying up to Iran and Syria.
