Turkey should apologize to Israel

MK Danny Danon (Likud) has got it right. It's Turkey that should be apologizing to Israel (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
First, Turkey should apologize for encouraging the sending, under false pretenses, of anti-Israel activists into the country’s sovereign territory. These supposedly peaceful activists, who were in fact carrying a cache of illegal weapons, attacked Israeli soldiers without provocation. Furthermore, Turkey has been using the flotilla as an opportunity to establish itself as a superpower within the Muslim world. The Turkish government also should apologize for turning the flotilla incident into a platform intended to present Israel as aggressive and barbaric.

Most of all, Mr. Erdogan should apologize for continuing to support the flotilla and maintain connections with Hamas and other Islamic extremist groups. Hamas has called repeatedly for the destruction of the state of Israel, and the naval blockade was set up specifically to prevent the smuggling of arms into Gaza that could jeopardize Israel’s safety. The flotilla activists seek to circumvent this blockade with the intention of providing weapons to Hamas. Israel has a legal right to defend its borders and will continue to do whatever is necessary to ensure the well-being of its people.

An Islamist Turkey will never acknowledge wrong-doing towards Israel and will never apologize for initiating aggression against the Jewish State.

The prospects of such an admission forthcoming from Ankara are exactly zero.

Israel's relations with Turkey won't go back to the way they were in our lifetime.

They should also apologize to the Armenians, to the Greeks and I believe also to the Kurds.
I forgot- also to humanity for being such dishonest lying bastards.
