Senior official says Israel won’t adhere to Turkish ultimatum despite implications.
Israel has no intention of apologizing to Turkey over the 2010 flotilla raid despite Ankara’s latest ultimatum, a senior official told Ynet Thursday.
While Israel is aware of the implications of its decision to refrain from issuing an apology, “we cannot conduct ourselves based on ultimatums,” the official said.
“The severing of ties goes against Turkey’s strategic interests,” he said. “They wish to engage in a policy of mediating between everyone.”
We all should apology for sinning against a Holy God. Turkey for equipping and supporting a ship of Islamic terrorists from its harbors, and Israel because it commandos had to take life’s.
But shall Israel apologize for defending its borders?
Of course not. A hostile ship from Turkey had no business challenging the sovereign Israeli naval control of the sea waters around the Jewish state.
If hostile ships enters into Turkish waters, I am sure the Turkish navy will enforce their right to du security checks and conduct customs.
When is a navy using not appropriate force?
While the US and NATO is permitted to use what ever force they feel necessary, there is a different law for Israelis.
When a man with a knife wants to kill a Jew, the Jew will only be permitted to use a knife. The logic must be that the attacker must get a fair chance to kill the Jew.
This is the rule of the jungle, or at best what Jews had to face inside pagan Colosseum in Rome.
Washington is now putting pressure on Israel, and give secret threats of using the International war tribunal in the Hague in the “Israel-Palestine conflict”. But for the US there is no judge, who can get their war criminals arrested.
The US do not even submit to the International war tribunal in the Hague, but keep on arresting and sending people to this court.
Its a disgrace, and another example of the hypocrisy and double standards of Washington.
