TURKEY'S prime minister has again accused Israel of "state terrorism" and called on the Jewish state to apologise and compensate victims of a raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan said: "the Israeli government must apologise and compensate (victims) for the state terrorism in the Mediterranean." He was addressing members of his Islamic-oriented party at a weekend retreat today. Eight Turks and one person with American and Turkish nationality were killed in the May 31 raid on a ship carrying pro-Palestinian activists trying to breach Israel's naval blockade of Gaza.
Israel insists its commandos opened fire after they were attacked by activists Relations between the two former allies have been deteriorating since Israel's Gaza war and hit a low point after the raid.
To which, the Israelis should reply with a hearty, but very well meant, "FUCK YOU"
