Turkey accuses Israel of occupying territory, but Turkey occupies half of Cyprus illegaly. Turkey challenges Israels blockade of Gaza, but itself closed off sections of Famagusta. Turkey demands that Israel let descendants of Arab refugees into Israel, but does not let into its portion of Cyprus the Greeks whom it frightened out.
They are too busy denouncing and attacking Israel for building a security fence around Jerusalem, a fence to keep the Palestinian (Arab) suicide bombers from mass-murdering Jewish children. Besides, they know they would face harsh imprisonment.
Even Turkey does not recognize the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. Many UN resolutions demand that Turkey evacuate and return stolen property. Turkey ignores the resolutions. Turkey, however, denounces Israel for ignoring world public opinion.
Turkey demands self-determination for western Palestinian Arabs, but does not allow Turkish Kurds, Armenians, Assyrians, Greeks, Bulgarians, Azeris and others to exercise any of it, even in the form of limited language autonomy.
Turkey denounces Israel for allegedly repressing Arab human rights, but Israeli Arabs have more freedom than do Turks in Turkey. Minorities in Turkey have been forcibly Turkified. Censorship is rife.
The state of human rights in Turkey, according to numerous human rights NGOs, continues to be atrocious.
Women in Turkey are mistreated, until very recently women students applying to universities had to pass a virginity test. The Turkish military police routinely kill civilians.
Journalists have been assassinated.
Islamofascism is growing stronger and local Islamic fundamentalist terrorists filled the [top deck of the ] Gaza peace flotilla sponsored by Turkey.
Those are the terrorists whose suppression by Israel has now become the focus of Turkeys demand for an Israeli apology.(Prof. Steven Plaut, 7/14/10.)
