    What a wonderful achievement by Obama, getting Israel to apologize for the flotilla incident, which involved one vessel and perhaps a dozen people. But, Obama, and Europe, and the UN, keep failing to notice that Turkey has been conducting a genocide of the Kurds in Turkey and in Iraq, for years. There are no estimates of how many thousands have been killed, because the Turkish "democracy" does not permit news coverage. The US certainly knows about the bombing attacks in Iraq, because the US was protecting Iraqi airspace, when they occurred. The US must have known when Turkey invaded Iraq and attacked Kurdish villages. Turkey uses US-furnished planes and armaments. But, there have been no suggestions that Turkey should apologize. There have not even been suggestions that Turkey should stop. There have been no flotillas, carrying humanitarian aid to the Kurds. There has been no sensationalized coverage in the media. There has not even been a speech by Obama.
