Memo to Israel's Foreign Ministry: Please call Turkey's bluff

Would you believe Turkey is claiming that Israel asked for the release of the Palmer Commission report to be postponed (Hat Tip: Joshua I)?
The release of the report was postponed and the request for the delay came from Israel, as in past postponements, Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Selçuk Ünal said.

The Israeli side, on the other hand, has presented a different account, saying Turkey requested the postponement. On Sunday, Israeli newspaper Haaretz quoted an Israeli diplomatic source as saying Turkey asked for the postponement. The US government has expressed its support for the Turkish request to delay the report, and Israel has not opposed the move and the decision lies with the UN chief, Haaretz had said.
There's not going to be an apology because there are no relations with Turkey to be 'saved.' It's time for Israel to all Turkey's bluff by publicly asking for the report to be released.
