    Now Israel is compensating terrorists


    Justice Minister Tzippy Livni on Sunday spoke with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, discussing the possibility that Israel would pay reparations to the families of nine Turkish supporters of Hamas who were killed in 2010 aboard the Mavi Marmara, after they attempted to attack and murder IDF soldiers as part of the Gaza flotilla.

    Turkey’s vice-premier, Bulenbt Arink, told Turkish media Sunday that a meeting and discussion in compensation had taken place, but gave no details.
    Turkish media reported Sunday that the families were due to receive “tens of millions of dollars” in compensation. Israel has named former director general of the Foreign Ministry, Yosef Checanover, as responsible for the negotiations on compensation for the Israeli side.

    Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan told reporters that Turkey had made three demands from Israel as a condition for restoring relations with Israel. One of those was a demand for a full Israeli apology. “They wanted to express regret, but we said ‘no.’ We demanded that they use the word ‘apology,’” he said.

      This is revolting.

    2. Max says:

      Turkey should pay Israel for damages – hospital bills for IDF + cost of operation to intercept the terrorist ship.
      should but Israel pays them because Israel’s politicians and power elite is corrupt.
      So Israelis got two enemies – their rulers and the Jihadists. SOP for all Western populations, Israel is no different , the power elite opposes the people.

    3. NormanF says:

      Israel has paid compensation to Arab terrorists and released the killers of Jewish children from its own prisons to lead a charmed life.

      What has changed in Israeli dhimmitude? Nothing!

      This is what world opinion does for you.

      Why does Israel have to justify it’s own defense.

      World opinion is what the liberal left media purports when it comes to Israel.
      They will find fault regardless.

      The reason why Israeli leadership has to ignore world opinion and anti-Semite government leaders.

      World opinion and $2.50 can’t even buy you a loaf of bread.

      BTW Turkey was hoping that ship would get past the blockage.

      They need to apologize to Israel

      @ rongrand:
      Great comments, rongrand. As an American in Israel, I was here for that entire terror ship attack and visited the Israeli kids who were savagely wounded. What I saw at that hospital was grotesque and barbaric. I also saw the weapons stockpiles of the terrorists…ugly. Dr. Gary K…..Jerusalem, Israel/via Boston

      THIS is pathetic…but typical for the pathetic Livni loser…>>> Aug., 2006 UN Res. 1701…her lofty diplomatic “achievement” sham/scam. She sleeps with it under her pillow.
