Talks continue between Israel and Turkey, despite harsh disagreement over ‘Marmara’ apology.
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman locked horns with his Turkish counterpart on Wednesday over the issue of an Israeli apology for the Mavi Marmara affair.
Lieberman said an apology was not in the offing, and Ahmet Davutoglu demanding it as a condition for a resumption of normal ties.
“As far as we’re concerned, there is no reason to apologize,” Lieberman said in a meeting of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee meeting on Wednesday. “Turkey wants to give the impression that they can dictate terms, and we’ll accept them as if they’re a superpower. It’s a matter of honor to them.”

Turkey is a occupier of two nations. Northern Cypress and Kurdistan. Still nations like Israel do not challenge the Turkish borders set by cease fire or legal disputes.
But Islamic ruled Turkey do not respect the naval borders of Israel. And even worse: Turkey support Islamic forces that wants to challenge the borders of Israel. And when Israel enforce its sovereign borders, Turkey stands first in the line to condemn Israel.
The Turkish attitude is pure hypocrisy. This nations must clear up its own mess, before it starts to teach other nations how to behave.
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?
