Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is demanding that Israel apologize and compensate Turkey for the IDF “raid” on the Mavi Marmara last May.
The IDF, of course, responded only after being attacked while boarding the ship in enforcement of a naval blockade of Gaza. Nine Turks were killed. While Palestinian apologists tried to portray it as a humanitarian mission there was sure an awful lot of weaponry on board.
Davutoglu has a lot of chutzpah in demanding an apology and compensation given that it was the Turkish government that deliberately provoked this confrontation or at the very minimum did nothing to prevent it. If anything it is Turkey that owes Israel an apology and compensation.
