Shocking News

Reader comment on item: Recognizing Israel as the Jewish State: Statements, Actions, Analyses

Submitted by Alexandros (United Kingdom), Mar 22, 2013 at 13:04

I have just read some shocking, for me at least. Israeli Prime Minister asked forgiveness from the Sultan for the incident of Mavi Marmara and the merciful Sultan accepted the forgiveness of israel!!

I was shocked, that is the proper word. And you are talking here about peace with the Arabs and i had written in another comment that the israeli government should notice the American president, that islamic extremism is very dangerous. I seriously doubt whether the peace talks were ever the case for this visit, Obama visited both sides, said the political correct things to both, he gave an amazing performance and made Israel to ask for forgiveness from Turkey.

First of all this means that USA consider Turkey their first and most important ally in the world, i had written once more like a joke that we might see anti-American protests in Israel, but maybe this could be a possibility! Second, this action of asking forgiveness from Erdogan, was the worst scenario of all, this means that Israel has submitted to the Turkish will and that it accepts Turkey as the ruling country of the region, this makes Turkey a magic country in the eyes of Arab people and it gives amazing power to Turkey to use as they please.

I think that this was a huge mistake and it will be proven sooner or later!
