Lower seating positions... that's what diplomacy has come down to. How childish is that... in any other place, this kind of prank would get the diplomat dismissed... immediately, on the spot. No apology... no regretful interviews and no need to explain yourself. It's obvious, Erdogan... with a simpleton portfolio, tried to humiliate Shimon Peres at the World Economic Forum. The Israeli Foreign Ministry could've issued a terse statement. Equating Gaza to the Turks incursion against the PKK in eastern Turkey and northern Iraq. An all-out military retaliation by Turkish tanks and F-15's against the Kurds in 2009... case closed.
