Despite Erdogan’s extremely harsh comments during the Gaza operation – among them that Israel should be barred from the UN, that Israel was perpetrating inhumane actions that would lead to its destruction, and his upbraiding of President Shimon Peres at the Davos summit last month – Israel has never called in the Turkish ambassador to register a protest.
So when Turkey mentions Israel’s destruction, it’s ok. But the minute an Israeli general reacts to that comment, they demand a formal apology.
On another note, remember the airplane crash in Buffalo? with the 9/11 widow? of course you do. There were two Israelis on that flight.
