    Turkey Threatens Israel Over June Flotilla

    Turkey Threatens Israel Over June Flotilla

    Turkey is threatening unspecified intervention if Israel again uses military action to prevent a flotilla, organized in part by Turkish Islamist groups, from reaching Gaza.  Via AFP:

    Turkey on Saturday warned Israel against another act of bloodshed in international waters after activists announced plans to send a new aid flotilla to the blockaded Gaza Strip.

    “It should be known that Turkey will give the necessary response to any repeated act of provocation by Israel on the high seas,” Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said in an interview on NTV television.

    “Those who believe Turkey should take certain steps to stop (the new flotilla) must first warn Israel not to repeat the human tragedy it caused last year,” he said.

    On May 31 last year, Israeli marines swarmed aboard the Turkish flagship of an international aid flotilla bound for Gaza, killing nine Turks in international waters and plunging ties with Ankara into deep crisis.

    The Istanbul-based Islamist charity which had spearheaded the mission said Friday that a new convoy of ships would sail to Gaza in the last week of June.

    Around 1,500 activists from more than 100 countries will take part in the convoy, organised by 22 civic groups, it said.

    Turkey seems to be in a mood to make threats lately. 

    As I reported on Monday, Turkey also is threatening to scuttle a U.N. Report on the May 2010 flotilla because the initial draft found that Israel had a right to act in international waters against the flotilla (although the draft criticized Israel for using excessive force).

    This all is just a continuation of the downward spiral in Turkey’s conduct in the region, from a force for stability to a force for provocation.

    But yet..

    F-35 fighter engine factory foundation laid in Turkey

    Why are we still doing this..?

    This is profound:

    "Rivers of tears are flowing from the Middle East, where there is only one safe haven for Christians. You know where that is. The only place in the Middle East where Christians are safe is Israel.

    That is why Israel deserves our support. Israel is a safe haven for everyone, whatever their belief and opinions. Israel is a beacon of light in a region of total darkness. Israel is fighting our fight.

    The jihad against Israel is a jihad against all of us. If Israel falls, we, too, will feel the consequences. If Jerusalem falls, Athens, Rome, Amsterdam and Nashville will fall. Therefore, we all are Israel."

    Spoken by Geert Wilders, in a church in Tennessee earlier this month. To read the blog post and more excerpts of his speech go to: News Real Blog , David Horowitz's site. Quite moving. Very real.

    We are ALL Israel. We must stand with her.

    I wonder if the moronic Islamists in Turkey were motivated by the stupid moves of POTUS Obungler. The Turks have been stupid in the past and are rabid nationalists. Just like the dogs that they despise so much, they bark a lot and should be kicked out of NATO. The US saw what kind of "ally" this race of mutts and backstabbers is in 2003, when US forces were denied access by a so-called "democratic" parliament.

    I am very happy the EU is smart enough to deny these international bandits and terrorists membership in the EU.

    IMHO, the response to the next "peace flotilla" with "peace activists" armed to the teeth, should be to torpedo the bastards from a mile away.

    When someone is using incremental violence, relying on the other side's civility, the only way to stop this "creeping terrorism" is with immediate and overwhelming violence. Force them to expose their hand and either negotiate peacefully – or have an all-out conflict – but remove their ability to harm you yet hide behind the cloak of public opinion.
