A blurb: Turkey- Israel relations
September 6, 2011 § Leave a comment
Lets keep this short because I am tired, hungry and not really in the general mood of writing a blog. In these last few days there has been an uproar over Turkey’s decision to expel Israeli diplomats when Israeli stated they wouldn’t apologize over the deaths of nine Turks and an American of Turkish origin last year on a flotilla seeking to break Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza.
Now let’s get this sorted. This is not the reason Turkey has decided to turn all anti Israel and remember its muslim brothers and the glorious jihad. This all comes down to natural resources. Israel lately has been busy making deals with Cyprus and Greece over the natural gas that has been found in the area. Israel has been lucky enough to have made deals with both countries over this matter while Turkey has ultimately been left behind on this matter. Wouldnt you be pissed if everyone was getting ice cream in the neighbourhood expect for you??
Anyway, I find it funny (ironic really) that Turkey’s excuse was that Israel wouldnt apologize over the deaths of the brave souls on the flotilla while Turkey itself has let to apologize about the several genocides committed by their own hands (Armenian, Kurds, Cypriots, Greeks etc). It’s also funny that Turkey would actually think that Israel a state-run by war and prejudice would ever CONSIDER the word apologize. Has Israel ever apologized over the thousands of Palestinians that have been killed? The obvious answer is no. Turkey understands the media and is trying to use all the emotional bullshit to gain ground. The real reason is always the same in every instance, it’s about wealth and power everything else really doesn’t matter.
Remember kids always try to find the REAL reason for every event. Blurb over and out.
