My Rage

Reader comment on item: An Israeli Apology to Turkey

Submitted by NuritG (United States), Mar 23, 2013 at 00:51

I have nothing but rage and disappointment of PM Netanyahu's apology to Turkey. In Islam apology means subjugation.

The headlines are bright, Netanyahu apologises to Turkey for Mavi Marmara raid (http://tribune.com.pk/story/524838/netanyahu-apologises-to-turkey-for-mavi-marmara-raid/), Netanyahu Apologizes to Erdogan (http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/166489), נתניהו וארדואן סיכמו: השגרירים יחזרו, משפטי המרמרה יבוטלו http://www.nrg.co.il/online/1/ART2/454/838.html?hp=1&cat=404&loc=2

There has been a dramatic shift in relations between Israel and Turkey. Netanyahu and his Turkish counterpart Erdogan spoke and agreed that both countries ambassadors returned to their post, the legal case on the Marmara Flotilla is dropped and the countries re-establish/resume relations. Netanyahu expressed regret and offered an elusive apology over the consequences of the Marmara flotilla and accepted to complete the compensation, Turkey will cancel the legal proceedings it began, see below. I do not see eye to eye with Netanyahu in the matter and I side with Avigdor Lieberman . I therefore am using my freedom of Speech Obama so freely used while in Israel and contained while speaking to the Arabs and tell the nation of Israel as follows: This is Islam Taqiyya in action. But that is not the issue of rotten politics, it is a matter of respect and dignity that appears Jews simply lack. More so, Barack Hussein Obama, a manipulator bar none, has, once again, brought the Prime Minister of Israel to his knees holing him under his thumb. Will the terrorist on the Mavi Marmara, pay compensations to the IDF soldiers they attacked and injured? I do not think so.

Close-Up Footage of Mavi Marmara Passengers Attacking IDF Soldiers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYjkLUcbJWo What kind of a country do we, Jews, have that cannot hold to its own dignity? We, Jews, have been marginalized, disrespected, persecuted and killed for millennia and now, when we have sovereignty we have no idea what to do with it and how to apply it. If the leader of Israel behaves so amoral, no wonder the world disrespects Israel, treats her under totally separate hostile standards, interferes in her affairs, internal and international, and manipulates her. And Israel's enemy laughs at her. Don't Israel appears to be a fool? I think so. The world is not to blame. Israel has bought it all upon itself.

When, in 1967, she was victorious and returned lost land into her hands, Israelis simply could not bathe in their victory and hold to it. So what they have done? They decided to punish themselves. They brought the world terrorist savage Arafat into their land, along with his 100,000 troops and family members, and the result was tens of hundreds Israelis dead. Then they went further with their self inflicting punishment and signed an agreement with the savage Arafat who never stuck to one clause of the agreement while the Israelis, sticking to a delusional agreement , suffered an untold victimization, murder and mayhem. But if that was not enough, Israelis expelled and keep on expelling Jews from their homes, built in the land of Israel, to look good to the world who sits and watches, with satisfaction, her own inflicted sorrow. Jews simply cannot see themselves superior, victorious and in control of their own fate. They need outsiders to navigate them, to tell them no matter what. If we look at the world, no other nation behaves as Israel does; stubborn, recalcitrant and myopic.

Other nations do what is right for them, Israel is doing what is right for all other nations but herself. Until the knife is at her throat and then she reacts but never goes all the way to end the threats, the suffering, the disrespect, and the interference in her sovereignty, so the cycle goes on, as it has been for the past 65 years and will continue so. And this is a war of attrition of the world on Israel and it is very tiring and it wears one out. So let us think for a moment, what good Israel's behavior has brought her? What do we have today? Israel is surrounded by thousands of rockets ready to destroy her in a short while. The world is acting obnoxiously against her and anti-Semitism is on the rise, as bad as in 1938. That is a direct result of weakness, and schizophrenically ambiguous policy lacking public diplomacy.

I said and say again, Benjamin Netanyahu is a good orator, just like Obama; he is a bad executer. Netanyahu weakness was revealed when he gave Hebron away to Israel's worst nemesis, the Moslems. Netanyahu is a weak leader, an opportunist. The worst, Netanyahu is not the kind of a leader Israel can afford under present reality; rather, he is probably dangerous to Israel's existence. We, Jews, get what we deserve, because we do not really know who we are and what we stand for. My blood is boiling and I hope yours too. I do not apologize to Turkey for the Mavi Marmara tragic incident. I apologize to the IDF Commando brave soldiers who landed into the terrorists' den and had nothing to defend themselves with but of paint-gun. The Nation of Israel, along paint-gun's diplomacy, means the state of Israel is doomed.
