You are the living proof that if you tell enough lies you will eventually believe in them.
Israel is a moral country with rules, democracy, and a place where you can express your opinion freely without fear; Arabs, Christians, and Jews alike!! It's a place where no matter who you are, if you need assistance or help you will get it by all means. Israel is a place that values life!!!!
The Turks have forgotten how many times Israel has stood by their side, in the political arena and in the military relations. The Turks have forgotten how quickly Israel came to their aid when natural disasters stroke Turkey; Children buried under the ruins of buildings were pulled out by Israelis rescue teams, it was the Israelis medical crews who treated the wounded on TURKISH SOIL!!!
So here is something for you to think on:
1. The UN Report (and let's be honest the UN is not in favor of Israel to say the least…) was very clear that the blockade on Ghaza is a legit action conducted by Israel and that never the less Israel must show regret on the loss of lives, which she have!!!!
2. 9 Turkish civilians were killed, not 10, this occurred during a murdering rampage carried out by the so called "Peace activists" on the Israelis troops who took over the ship with no more than paint guns and side holsters!!! (Feel free to dig further and see if I'm wrong). There were 4 Israelis injured, one of them from a gunshot!!!! A 9mm bullet in his stomach from none issued piece - to remind you that this was a "humanitarian flotilla"... (just in case you are wondering - my facts, unlike yours are backed up by videos and photos, care to see?
3. Turkey the so called protector of the week and the big human right defender… well this is going to be a though thing to show you the hypocrisy in this matter…. But I will try! Let's start with the simple fact that until this day the Turkish governments declines and denies the Armenian slaughter which was carried out by the Turks after the world war. We may continue with the fact that turkey is a conqueror of territories herself and that she drove millions of people from their homes, yes I am talking about "Turkish" Cypress which no nation on this planet beside of course the Turks recognize it as a legitimate sovereign country and for dessert I give you the final conclusion of this hypocrisy, the Kurds! A nation which is fighting for independence for a century now, they are spread over 5 countries and the Turks are killing them without discrimination, bombing villages and murdering women and children!
Now please remind me, why are we having this little discussion? Oh yes I forgot, because Israel is a big Devil who murders innocent peaceful activists.... the next thing you will say is that the Jews make their Matza from little Christians boys blood….
