One tiny little country controls the whole middle east and unofficially the world.

The Turkish boat "Mavi Marmara" dressed in Turkish flags on a humanitarian mission was no deterrent for Israel's warnings not to proceed.

Who knows what Israel's secrect intelligence knew about "some" of the passenges on that boat.

Israel wasn't born yesterday.

Turkish Foreign Minister , Mr Davutoglu told the BBC that Israel must issue an immediate apology for its storming of the aid ship and repatriate the pro-Palestinian campaigners.

If Greek commandos stormed a Turkish boat killing 20, whats the bet Turkey would of declared war upon us.

But in this case an apology will do and if Turkey gets one.

I think Turkey should just stick to bullying Cyprus. Israel is way out of their league......

One man went to remove the Turkish flag in the occupied and was shot to death and here we have 20 people dead and the boat dressed in Turkish flags towed back to an Israeli port and all Turkey wants is an apology !!!!!!

We all knew Turkey was never in the same league as Israel.

If you look back in history Turkey overcame their enemies with sheer numbers and heavy losses.

Today their army is no match for an army as skilled and technical as Israel's.

But they're good at shooting unarmed men on flagpoles I'll give them that much.

Like i said, Turkey should just stick to bullying little islands like Cyprus because Israel is way out of their league to try bully tactics with them.

I hope they are stupid enough to retaliate against Israel and hijack an Israeli boat and see what happens. One sneeze from Israel and they will blow Turkey away to kingdom come. LOL

I have just listened to Prime Minister Erdogan give a speech.
Out of all the countries in the world he stands up, and clearly states what everyone else is thinking, but too chicken to say!
A powerful speech.
I hope you manage to hear the whole speech, not just snippets.

John you say they are skilled, but look at the mess Mossad made in Dubai!
Also you would think Israeli Commandos,supposedly the best in the world? Could handle storming a civilian boat!
Another unprofessional blunder.

It didn't even cross my mind Moy.

I can also use that word "sarcastic" on you encouraging me to listen to a speech of condemnation from the Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Although i find it quite sad on behalf of the Palestinian cause as we can relate in their struggle, i just find it a deplorable insult
how Turkey as taken an intrest solving the Palestinian issue rather then resolving a 35 year Cyprus issue. Would you agree?
