Ayalon tells Turkey to get over it

Israel's Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon says that Turkey needs to get over the Mavi Marmara incident.
Turkey should not get “caught up in details such as the Mavi Marmara incident” as the two countries “have to look at the bigger issues,” Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Ayalon said, adding that the aggressive rhetoric between Tel Aviv and Ankara should end.

Economy and technology are two particular areas that require cooperation between the two countries, said Ayalon. In May 2010 six ships, led by the Turkish Mavi Marmara, were intercepted by Israeli commandos as they steamed toward Gaza. Israeli commandos killed eight Turks and one Turkish-American on the lead boat, sparking diplomatic fury in Ankara. “But all this is left behind. We should think of the Mavi Marmara as an isolated incident, and we should look to the future.
And have them stop throwing temper tantrums over their wounded 'honor'? Good luck with that.

Islamists (Turkey) would rather be holding the trigger to the Doomsday machine and the last ones vaporized than anything else.
