Netanyahu: No Apology to Turkey

By on 12.27.10 | 1:00PM

On Christmas Day, I commented on the demand of the Turkish Foreign Affairs Minister that Israel apologize to and compensate Turkey for the "raid" on the Mavi Marmara last May.

Well, in a TV interview broadcast in Israel today, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that his government will not apologize to Turkey.

Now that's a leader with backbone.

Of course, if this incident had involved the United States, President Obama would have bowed before Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan and apologized profusely. If only Obama were half the man Netanyahu is.
