Why does Israel's apology to turkey over the attack on American-flagged ships in international waters profoundly disturb me?
The Turkish media is reporting that Israel will apologize for the attack on the Mavi Marmara and pay compensation for the familes of the slain Turkish aid workers. No apology is forthcoming for America or compensation for the Americans attacked by Israel in international waters.
Turkey stood up to Israel for the attack on their citizens in international workers, and by apologizing, Israel has essentially been forced to admit it acted wrongly in the attack on the aid flotilla.
The moment that happens, the bill passed by Congress supporting Israel's attack on Americans in international waters becomes a signed confession. Every member of Congress who voted for the bill, spoke out in support of Israel, indeed even the President who ordered the US ambassador to the United Nations to intervene at the UN and block an investigation, is now an admitted accessory after the fact in Israel's attack on a US-flagged ship and American citizens in international waters. Because Congress voted to commit this crime, add a conspiracy charge as well. Where is America's apology, President Pussy? When does Israel compensate the American activists for their lost equipment and for the death of that 19-year old kid from New York, shot in the head as he lay in the deck, members of Congress?
The government of Turkey has made laughing stocks of all of you!
