Referring to the news article above:

Although I am not a big fan of Israel, however I can't believe this claim....

Furthermore, I simple can't believe that the Israeli government could be involved in such an event...

If such an event is indeed planed, it was certainly planed by a very ignorant or uneducated (if not dumb) person.....

Turkey however can't be condemned for such a reaction...
Especially, if there are in existence official agreements between Turkey and Israel regarding Ottoman heritage matters.....

BTW Turkey has such agreements for forts, mosques and heritage building from Ottoman times with many states in the ME and the Balkans....

I'm convinced the Israeli authorities will take the necessary steps to clarify the situation...
