The Turks planned carefully what they were going to do and definitely given the nature of the Turkish police state the action was approved on a very high level . They correctly foresaw how the events would unfold and orechestrated their reaction accordingly . They knew that if something happened to the flotilla , in the ensuing hystery and outcry against Israel any voice would drown which would try to point at the real culprits - the Turks . The Turks have got much experience in the tactics of perfidy and double talk . Don't we remember all their crimes and the ensuing uniform denial of reality on their part ? First they commit a genocide and all possible crimes and atrocities and then in unison blame the victims and speak of "denigration of Turkishness" if their lies are not accepted . Sadly , but nothing else can be expected from the Turks .
