Posted on 09/26/2011 9:38:41 AM PDT by Fennie
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned on Saturday that relations with Israel may "never be normal again" as tensions continue to rise after Israel refused to apologize over a raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla last year in which Israel Defense Forces soldiers killed nine Turkish citizen.
"We gave our warnings to Israel. This is the reason for war. This is something you cannot do in international waters. But as a great state, we have been very forgiving. That's why we have been very patient," Erdogan said in an interview on CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS" to be aired on Sunday.

RE: Erdogan: Israel-Turkey Relations May Never Be Normal Again
NOT AS LONG AS ERDOGAN IS LEADING TURKEY.
Dear Mr. Erdogan,
er-DOG-an woof woof woof woof woof.
What does this woof woof really care about “democracy” anyhow? He knows darn well that Islamic clerics denounce this form of government, and it would not be able to survive an earnestly Islamic state.
The blame lies with the anti-semite crap stirrer’s who got on that boat and defied the blockade.
You cannot expect anythingothger than what Israel hae promised. Israel promised they would not get through and they werent bluffing.
Now this Turkish idiot wants to blame the confrontation on Israel, If he didn’;t want Turks killed on that boat , he should have seen they weren’t on there.
He is just using this BS he is spouting as an excuse for going along with it ,and getting mashed.
Turkey a “great state”? GUFFAW!!
You have to wonder whether Erdogan is simply an immature, butt-hurt politician who is lashing out in frustration at his powerlessness and irrelevance, or whether he is actually a sinister and evil man who is deliberately rolling out his ugly agenda one step at a time.
(Actually, Erdogan is probably both of the above.)
The day that Islamofascist jackass is blown limb from limb will be a happy one for the world.
Erdogan is an Islamist fanatic, period.
Anytime he pretends less it is purely for temporary propaganda purposes.
His aims are the aims of Hezbollah and Hamas, and vice versa.
