    not seeking honour, or Israeli arrogance, but rather steadfastly mistrustful. How is an Israeli minister within the cabinet suppose to advocate peace with the Arabs given this characterization, it's highly doubtful. All this current discussion comes within reference to an apology requested by the Turkish government in the aftermath of the Turkish flotilla inspection in 2010 near Gaza. Ya'alon's worse fears are that if Israel's concedes territory to 1967, Israel would face the same scenario as the unexpected naval ambush (the IDF YouTube clearly demonstrated the vulnerability of these really unarmed soldiers), and previous to that, the communicated remark over the radio insinuating that Israel " can go back to Auschwitz ". All this, and probably more, give the context which sustains the mistrust. According to Ya'alon, not only did Israel have it's guard down, now it's expected to apologize as well. I'm not particularly saying he's correct, but I'm explaining, I think, his logic.
