Hi Mr. Tovey

Reader comment on item: Goodbye Ankara
in response to reader comment: Relationships are About MUTUAL Respect-Who is Respecting Israel Now?

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Sep 8, 2011 at 01:45

Dear Mr. Tovey,

I am back after a long time. It is nice to see you with your valuable comments here. In this particular Turkey-Israel episode , let me utter the 3 demands (which I believe to be very precise and specific) that Turkey expects Israel to fulfill :

1. A clear , public apology to the families of the victims of the attack on Mavi Marmara and fare enough comepensation to them for their irrepairable loss.

2. The soldiers and commanders from the IDF must be brought to justice in a proper court of law and tried according to their unjust , immoral and criminal deeds.

3. The immoral and unjustifiable economic siege on the people of Gaza must be lifted once and for all by Israel.

Israel should fulfill these 3 just demands and then only the previous bonhomie between ISrael and Turkey can be expected to get back into normalcy.

As per as the Palmer report justifying Israel's immoral siege on Gaza is concerned , that report is null and void for the below reasons :

1. That report was co-authored by Mr. Uribe , ex-president of Columbia and with established pro-Israel credentials and thereby charges of partiality can never be ruled out in this case.

2. I believe a majority of General Assembly members would vote to make this report's comments supporting Gaza siege as "iilegeal and immoral" under any humanitarian law.

--- I would love to know your extremely valuable and important comments on my observations here.

Take care

Debanjan
