    Israeli government is isolating the country from the rest of the world by refusing international investigations on the humanitarian issues. In short term some political gains are possible for the government but in the long run Israel will need higher or multiple “walls” or tighter naval blockades because everyone else in the world is an “alien” and a potential threat according to the current Israeli policies. Turkey has been sentenced several times by EU and International Courts for the bad record of human rights violations and pays compensations to the victims. Yes it is a shame but it has a big impact on government so that the human rights are getting better and better protected for “anybody” in Turkey and it will be even much better within a couple of years because the justice system is being improved. Israel should not be afraid of the fine. It causes some upgrades.
