" Most Turks believe Israel murdered nine Turkish citizens in international waters." There is no "believe" in here, this is a fact. How credible the writer is. " Israel could announce that there is no place for a public apology, but that as a humanitarian gesture, it is willing to create a fund for compensating the families of those killed in the May operation. A willingness to provide a one-time payment to each family (a sum of $200,000 has been mentioned ) could take some of the bite out of the current enmity between the two nations. It could also drive a wedge between the Turkish government and the families of the dead. Perhaps not all of them would be willing to accept payment, but offering it would be a humane, ethical gesture for all to see, one that may ultimately even bear diplomatic fruit." Does the writer really think that what he's talking about is humane or ethical? Just in case he didn't understand the essence of humanities and ethics, but these induce voluntary actions, often not motivated by pure political gain (or rather loss in this case). To sum it up, what the writer is saying is that " well $200 000 dollars a victim seems to be fair enough, there were 9 victims (or "Jihadi Alqaeda Hizb Hamas AKP Red army terrorists" if the Haaretz public prefers we call them as such)so that's brings us up to $1.8M, well if you ask me that's not a lot to pay in order to have a new strong Hasbara argument". problem solved! Wonderful! It's a brave new world.
