Turkey cuts Israel ties over flotilla raid

(AP) ANKARA, Turkey - Turkey expelled Israel's ambassador and said Friday it is cutting military ties with Jerusalem over last year's raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that killed nine people.


Turkey's move came before the anticipated publication Friday of a U.N. report on violence aboard a Gaza-bound protest flotilla. The fatalities included eight Turkish nationals and one Turkish-American activist.


The New York Times published what it said were excerpts from the report, which said Israel's blockade of Gaza is a "legitimate security measure." But the report also said Israel's use of force against the flotilla was "excessive and unreasonable," according to the newspaper.


An Israeli official said the report showed Israel's actions were in keeping with international law. The official said Israel hoped the two countries could now "return to the cooperation that was a cornerstone of regional stability." He spoke on condition of anonymity because the report had yet to be officially released. He said Israel expected it to be made public by the U.N. later Friday.


Turkey has made an Israeli apology a condition of improving diplomatic ties. Israeli officials say the report does not demand an Israeli apology, establishing instead that Israel should express regret and pay reparations.


Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said the government was downgrading diplomatic ties with Israel to the level of second secretary and that the ambassador and other high-level diplomats would leave the capital Ankara by Wednesday.


He said all military agreements signed between the former allies were also being suspended.


"The time has come for Israel to pay for its stance that sees it above international laws and disregards human conscience," Davutoglu said. "The first and foremost results is that Israel is going to be devoid of Turkey's friendship."


Davutoglu said the report "displayed the violence committed by the Israeli soldiers," but also criticized it for describing Israel's naval blockade as a legitimate security measure and in line with international law.

Turkey does not recognize the Israel's embargo on Gaza," Davutoglu said, adding that Turkey would take steps to have the International Court of Justice and the United Nations to look into its legality.


Relations between Turkey and Israel, once close, have soured in recent years as Turkey has tilted away from the West. They deteriorated sharply after the flotilla bloodshed.

The US would be the #1 arms exporter, dildo.

Self-defense is guaranteed all states under the UN Charter. Slingshots are proven ineffective.

he and his jew-hating buds hate that israel gets to defend itself. they hate it more that israel isn't some destitute backwoods third-world country.

screw 'em...

Israel is helping other countries, like the Us, defend themselves. Nearly every military in the world, including the US, uses Israeli military technology that is considered among the most advanced in the world if not the most advanced.:clap2:

Could there ever be a bigger show of hypocrisy! Turkey demanding an apology from Israel for the blockade of Gaza! The Turks have yet to apologize for the Armenian genocide, instead of blatantly denying it. Perhaps before making such requests, they should set an example themselves!

An American can be where ever the fuck an American wants to be, witdim.

No one has license to put a bullet in their brains if they are not attacking them.

Awesome---Israel now supplies the whole world with killing machines. A great product of choice for God's chosen. Why is it that it needs US military aid again ?

Are you mentally impaired or just plain stupid? I just got through telling you the US is the #1 arms exporter in the world and every state is guaranteed the right to have a standing military under the UN Charter.

Go back to sleep, dildo

Foreign Minister:

1. Israeli Ambassador has to leave by Wednesday.

2. All the military agreements between Turkey and Israel have been suspended.

3. As the country with the longest coastline in the Eastern Mediterranean, Turkey will take whatever measures it deems necessary for the freedom of navigation.

4. Turkey does not recognize Israel's blockade of Gaza. This blockade will be taken to the International Court of Justice. An initiative to mobilize the 66th UN General Assembly in September in this regard will be started.

5. All initiatives of Turkish and foreign victims of the attack will be supported in International courts.

Turkey will have more cause to regret this Than Israel..

The region is developing into a direction to our benefit.
As the strongest country in this region, we are admired and have the trust of the people of this region.
I don't see what or who will make regret us anything, it's the other way round to what you claim.
