Mr Havas - you don't realise you've been skillfull manipulated by your own government. The'aid flotilla/ could have gone to Egypt instead of tring to vex the Israelis. The offer was on the table from Egypt. But it did not - instead stubbornly went ahead with the Turkish plan of provoking a confrontation with israel. The Turks obviosuly considereeddd the most likely outcomes.

What was known beforehand was that the Israelis would NOT do nothing. So the Turkish attempt was a deliberate provocation . They would have anticipated a strong israelis response - even anticipated death and injuries (certainly those 'peace activists' on board had their own agenda - we've al seen the footage of them clubbing soldiers with iron pipes, the knife attack s etc.)

So the Turks got what they were expecting - and no doubt gloated over the fact that lives were lost - as it gave them an excuse to further whip up anti-semitic feeling.

Most people saw through it.

"...... we have to take our revenge some how someday now. ı dont want any relationship with israelis even if turkey loses turists and more importantly military related things. "

Why don't you take some revenge on the Muslim Sudanese government which has been responsible for the deaths of tens, if not hundreds of thousands of Darfur muslims? ( OK, rhetorical question - I know the answer to that - your little green book requires you to target the Jews, right?

While we're talkin about revenge - should Russians and armenians take their revenge out on the Turks??

How about your fellow Turkic Izbeks getting a little community justice back on their fellow Muslim Kyrgiz?
Why aren't you frothing at the mouth over that? 2,000 muslims killed by other muslims. And you're not doing a thing? What, no tears at all?

Instead you'd rather focus your hatred on Israel - whose soldiers acted in self defence while being attacked by a rabble of angry muslims? How many westerners on that boat attacked the Israelis ?? ZERO.

Only those with an anti-semitic agenda did so. And you're angry about it? Just what your government wants.

True freedom is an internal realisation - where it is impossible to be manipulated by any outside forces, even pious and sanctimonious and self-righteous ones..

Hopefully, someday you'll realise that.. ...
