David, i totally understood you as a Turk. but what you are missing is ; as a democracy my government can not stop people from travelling on their own desire. and our Foreign Minister told that (maybe your and US TV s did not show it) they warned the Mavi Marmara but they inisist on going and so FM told this to Israel, Egypt and US Foreign Ministries and also told them to aware any violent actions against civialns. also US send letters to Turkey and Brazil on Iran issue then lied about it. in Iraq war, we suffered the most. as a result i do not want such a friendship sorry all of you. i still do not have any problem with Jews or our Jew citizens. Turkey is a independent state and i think we must think our ecomony too (i mean sanctions on Iran - USA or Israel think whatever they want, i want my goverment to continue trade with Iran.) and hope Haaretz will publish this.
