    It would be a mistake to interpret this as Turkey's take away from this tragedy. Turkey and its people would not need that kind of credit. You (the author) should understand that the majority of Turkish people is only interested in seeing some sort of an improvement in the conditions of Gazans, nothing more. Nonetheless, it should not surprise you (or me) to see certain individuals or small groups trying to take advantage of the situation, e.g. claiming undeserved credits. The world is not that stupid, they'll know when a credit is due. Besides, the events surrounding Gaza is a little more serious than who deserves a credit today - there is a lot of room for making things better. If you start to distribute credits that fast, people will stop and say we've done enough. I suppose Israeli people should raise serious questions about their leaders' vision (or lack thereof) on Gaza. I don't think Israelis need anybody's advice to tell right from wrong and yet they seem to lack the courage to form their own opinion - I suppose the fear pumped up by their leaders is blocking the way.. Sad...
