Disappointing News

Reader comment on item: An Israeli Apology to Turkey

Submitted by susan (Shoshannah) Somerville (Israel), Mar 24, 2013 at 04:19

I find it unbearable that PM Netanyahu would cave in to Erdogan and the Turks to such a degree; but perhaps, not surprising. What happened to Israeli convictions and strength of purpose? Did Obama wrap our PM around his finger? I am very familiar with how the ISM and those in back of the Mavi Mamara operate, and I can tell you that they will try again, soon, to penetrate Gaza and then proclaim a victory. So, does this apology set a precedent? I hope hot!!! Not the least of all is the fact that it was kill or be killed. Why should Israel risk their soldiers' lives?

I would like to add that I am living in Israel, now, so this news feels even more painful than if I was just a "pro-Israel activist" in Berkeley, California.

Chag Sameach, in spite of all of these difficulties!
