The headlines are bright, Netanyahu apologises to Turkey for Mavi Marmara raid, Netanyahu Apologizes to Erdogan.
There has been a dramatic shift in relations between Israel and Turkey… Netanyahu and his Turkish counterpart Erdogan spoke and agreed that both countries ambassadors returned to their post, the legal case on the Marmara Flotilla is dropped and the countries re-establish/resume relations. Netanyahu expressed regret and offered an elusive apology over the consequences of the Marmara flotilla and accepted to complete the compensation, Turkey will cancel the legal proceedings it began, see below.
I do not see eye to eye with Netanyahu in the matter and I side with Avigdor Lieberman.
Using My Freedom Of Speech
I therefore am using my freedom of Speech that Obama so freely used while in Israel and contained while speaking to the Arabs and tell the nation of Israel as follows:
This is Islam Taqiyya in action…
But that is not the issue of rotten politics, it is a matter of respect and dignity that appears Jews simply lack. More so, Barack Hussein Obama, a manipulator better than others, bar none, has, once again, brought the Prime Minister of Israel to his knees holing him under his thumb.
Giving Up Our Dignity
Will the terrorists on the Mavi Marmara, pay compensation to the IDF soldiers they attacked and injured? I do not think so.
What kind of a country do we, Jews, have that cannot hold to its own dignity?
We, Jews, have been marginalized, disrespected, persecuted and killed for millennia and now, when we have sovereignty we have no idea what to do with it and how to apply it.
If the leader of Israel behaves so amorally, no wonder the world disrespects Israel, treats her under totally separate hostile standards, interferes in her affairs, internal and international, and manipulates her. And Israel’s enemy laughs at her.
Does Israel appear to be a fool? I think so.
The world is not to blame. Israel has brought it all upon itself. When, in 1967, she was victorious and returned lost land into her hands, Israelis simply could not bathe in their victory and hold to it.
So what have they done?
They decided to punish themselves. They brought the world terrorist savage Arafat into their land, along with his 100,000 troops and family members, and the result was tens of hundreds Israelis dead. Then they went further with their self inflicting punishment and signed an agreement with the savage Arafat who never stuck to one clause of the agreement while the Israelis, sticking to a delusional agreement, suffered an untold victimization, murder and mayhem.
Jews Beating Jews, For What Purpose?
But if that was not enough, Israelis expelled and keep on expelling Jews from their homes, built in the land of Israel, to look good to the world, that sits and watches, with satisfaction, her own inflicted sorrow. Jews simply cannot see themselves superior, victorious and in control of their own fate. They need outsiders to navigate them, to tell them no matter what.
If we look at the world, no other nation behaves as Israel does; stubborn, recalcitrant and myopic. Other nations do what is right for them, Israel is doing what is right for all other nations but herself. Until the knife is at her throat and then she reacts but never goes all the way to end the threats, the suffering, the disrespect, and the interference in her sovereignty, so the cycle goes on, as it has been for the past 65 years and will continue so. And this is a war of attrition of the world on Israel and it is very tiring and it wears one out.
What Good Has Israel’s Behavior Brought?
So let us think for a moment, what good Israel’s behavior has brought her? What do we have today? Israel is surrounded by thousands of rockets ready to destroy her in a short while. The world is acting obnoxiously against her and anti-Semitism is on the rise, as bad as in 1938. That is a direct result of weakness, and schizophrenically ambiguous policy lacking public diplomacy.
I said and say again, Benjamin Netanyahu is a good orator, just like Obama; he is a bad executer. Netanyahu’s weakness was revealed when he gave Hebron away to Israel’s worst nemesis, the Moslems. Netanyahu is a weak leader, an opportunist. The worst, Netanyahu is not the kind of leader Israel can afford under present reality; rather, he is probably dangerous to Israel’s existence.
Paint Gun Diplomacy
We, Jews, get what we deserve, because we do not really know who we are and what we stand for.
My blood is boiling and I hope yours is too. I do not apologize to Turkey for the Mavi Marmara tragic incident. I apologize to the IDF Commando brave soldiers who landed in the terrorists’ den and had nothing to defend themselves with but paint-guns.
The Nation of Israel, along with paint-gun diplomacy, means the state of Israel is doomed
Dramatic shift in relations: Netanyahu Erdogan spoke and agreed: the ambassadors returned, Legal case on Marmara canceled
Dramatic thaw in relations: Prime Minister Turkish counterpart talked first time since 2009, and decided to re-establish the relationship between the two countries. Netanyahu expressed sorrow over the consequences of the flotilla and accepted to complete the compensation, Turkey will cancel the legal proceedings.
First results of Obama’s visit: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan spoke today and Netanyahu apologized for the killing of Turkish civilians during the takeover of the ship Mavi Marmara, which led the Turkish flotilla to Gaza in May 2010.
The move, supported by Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and military, probably MOT due to American pressure, rather the escalating of the civil war in Syria, which raises a need for a strong ally in the region.
The apology led to a conclusion on Saturday of normalization between the two countries, including the return of diplomatic representation level and sending ambassadors back to Tel Aviv and Ankara. Erdogan, who took back some of the things he said against Zionism, agreed to cancel the existing legal proceedings against IDF soldiers, including any proceedings to be opened in the future.
Turkish Prime Minister took back the unequivocal demand to remove the blockade on Gaza. During the conversation Netanyahu also went over the steps Israel has taken already to ease the blockade. The two leaders agreed to continue working together to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza.
The wording of the apology is elusive and differs from the original Turkish demand for an apology for the killing of its citizens. The text agreed upon includes “an apology to the Turkish people for the mistake could lead to loss of human life.” This following an Israeli investigation of the incident, indicating a number of operational errors during the takeover of the Mavi Marmara.
During the conversation, Netanyahu clarified that the tragic consequences of the flotilla was not intentional. He expressed regret on behalf of the State of Israel for the damage and loss of human life. It was also agreed that Israel will pay compensation into a humanitarian fund to be established specifically for the families of the victims, not direct compensation to the families as the Turks demanded.
The dramatic move is the result of a long meeting held today between Netanyahu and Obama. The White House is working for a long time for the return to normal relations between the countries, but so far these efforts did not bear fruit. Turkey insisted on three conditions: an apology for the killing of its citizens, direct compensation to the families and the closure of the Gaza Strip.
Israel has held several meetings with Turkish representatives, the last took place a few weeks ago in Rome, between the head of the National Security Council, Yaakov Amidror, and deputy Turkish Foreign Minister Faridoon Sinirlolo. The negotiations were to mature several times, but according to an Israeli source the Turks refused to give up their demand for lifting the blockade on Gaza…
Apology To Gain Leverage Over Iran?
During his visit to Israel this week Obama pressured Netanyahu to end the affair with Erdogan, in view of the deteriorating situation in Syria. Between the two countries they arrived at an understanding that cooperation in the political, military and intelligence areas, which was discontinued due to the flotilla, may bear fruit for the entire region and for the United States. Israel believes that this will also help on the Iranian issue.
Netanyahu eventually settled it, to the satisfaction of Obama, this after once before he took his agreement back in the wake of pressure from the then Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.
In Israel they hope that that the new agreement will moderate the public statements of Turkish officials and also the opening to different relations. Even if the parties will not renew the close relationship that existed between the two countries in past years, there is hope that reconciliation will enable better results on both strategic and practical level.
The conversation took place in the afternoon at the airport, in front of Obama, just minutes before takeoff to Jordan. The dramatic reconciliation announcement went out at the same time in Turkey, Israel and the United States.
“The United States deeply appreciates our close partnerships with Turkey and Israel, and we attach great importance to the rehabilitation of the positive relationship between them in order to promote peace and security in the region” – The White House
“I hope the exchanges between the leaders today will allow for more extensive cooperation, which will include many challenges and many opportunities” – Obama
Avigdor Lieberman Attacks Netanyahu Apology
On Friday, Chairman of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee and the number 2 in the list of Likud-Our Home, MK Avigdor Lieberman, strongly attacked Prime Minister Netanyahu’s apology to Erdogan, over the Narmara Flotilla events in 2010.
“The apology of the State of Israel for the activities of IDF soldiers against a terrorist organization is a serious error,” – Lieberman.
