Reader comment on item: An Israeli Apology to Turkey
in response to reader comment: One more thing

Submitted by Oz D (Australia), Mar 25, 2013 at 04:32

Alexandros, first and foremost Israel has to look after her own interests, and I'm more than certain her relations with Turkey has always held greater value- Cold hard fact. but the Israelis can see a bigger picture. Interestingly enough erdogan consulted with the palestinians regarding the acceptance of apology but did Bibi even blink in asking the Cypriots or Greeks on their opinion? Absolutely not and it would not have mattered what the new found "friends" thought in any case.. This is politics and friendship means not much if there are no benefits long term. Friends/alliances can change with the flick of a coin in the Mid-East ( just look at erdogan and assad) and I'm sure with a great number of very experienced people in Israel they know exactly what they're doing.
