“Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday an Israeli apology for the 2010 deaths of nine Turkish pro-Palestinian activists that was brokered by U.S. President Barack Obama met Turkey's conditions and signaled its growing regional clout.” Turkey’s clout? Is that why it took Israel almost three years to apologize?
Indeed, Erdogan tries once again to manipulate and play with sentiments. It is not a secret that Erdogan-Netanyahu reconciliation was the result of Obama’s pressure on the Israeli Government.
On the other hand, Erdogan’s planned visit to Gaza next month will occur with Israel’s “blessing”. But he is expected to pretend that his visit is meant to “break” or to “challenge” Israel’s siege on the Gaza Strip! Watch out the events.
