Turkey Demands Israeli Apology & Money for Flotilla Raid

While speaking before the UN General Assembly today, Turkish President Abdullah Gul demanded that Israel apologize to and compensate his country for last May's raid on Mavi Marmara which left 9 Turks dead.

Talk about chutzpah. If anyone should apologize it's Turkey who sponsored this act of state terrorism against Israel. That was no humanitarian mission.

This follows Gul's cancellation of a meeting with Israeli President Shimon Peres last Sunday.

I don't expect Israel to either apologize or compensate Turkey nor do I think the Turkish government expects they will either. I do expect the Turks to use this as a pretext to break off diplomatic relations with Israel.
