Turkish navy to break Israel's siege of Gaza

“As part of the open conflict between Turkey and Israel following the massacre against the ‘freedom sail’ to Gaza and the protest sparked in the world, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is considering going to Gaza himself in order to break the blockade imposed on the Strip.” Al-Mustaqbal also reports that Erdogan has informed the US Administration of his plan to send a Turkish naval escort with another flotilla of aid, but that the Americans have requested the Prime Minister delay the plan.


It is not clear whether Erdogan would actually board the flotilla himself, but Al-Mustaqbal (Future) newspaper describes the source of the story as “knowledgeable”.The prospect of the naval confrontation between Turkey and Israel is a dangerous escalation of the crisis, potentially resulting in open conflict between the two states, which could easily draw in Israel’s traditional enemies.The move could be seen as an attempt by Turkey to force the hand of the UN and US to act on the Israeli blockade of Gaza.

This would be a very foolish move on the part of Turkey. There are certain points that are absolute. One is the Israeli resolve to isolate and break Hamas whom the vast majority of Israelis view as one of the biggest threats to the survival of Israel. If Turkey tries to force this issue with navy power. Israel will respond with force. The Israeli Air Force will decimate the Turkish Navy and the two counties will be at war. This is the kind of thing that western Europe has feared from Turkey and why the EU has shied away from Turkey as being a European partner. Israel is somewhat paranoid and therefore can not be bluffed. If Turkey is really ready for war then send the navy. If not. Then do not.

A clash between 2 key US allies!!, that's mad.. Another major crisis for the US government to deal with...if things go that way of course. Even though I'm against Turkey being in this EU, I admire their determination... this kind of problem just proves how much has had every single country of the Israeli attitude. The western europeean countries are just pussies, not even France or the UK/Germany had dared to condemn the murders of those activists. nevertheless i am scared of what such o conflict might lead to...

The best way that all the countries should approach UNO/back /support the resolutions.
There might be administration shuffling underground in Israel.I am prety sure Israelies are also don't wanted,the issue gets out of hand. Israel are confedence in thier deffence and expacting USA will come to help,if Israel is threat.It is my only openion. So war/confrontation should be avioded. lets bring the peace in the region.
