    Danny, just know that there is no hatred from the israeli side to our neighbours in turkey. judging by the videos of worlwide turkish protest against israel, i can't say the same on you. yes, there is a blockade on Gaza. yes, stopping the flotilla could have been done with less casualties. yes, we sometimes conceived as too rush to act. all is true. however it should be noted that: 1. israel evacuated its settlements in gaza back in 2005 (almost 6 years ago), since then thousands of missiles were shot on israeli cities by hamas so call government. can you blame us for wanting to check the cargos of ships coming to gaza? 2. quick web search will show you videos of the 'peace activists' on the flotilla training in attacking the soldiers (who carried paintball guns when boarding as no opposition was expected), 'peace activists who left videos that they want to be shahids and die on that ship, 'peace activists' who carried dozens on weapon on all sorts and sizes to welcome the soldiers. does it still sound like a peace flotilla? 3. before the flotilla left to gaza shores, israel addressed the flotilla responsibles and ask them to pass the cargo for inspection (with the flotilla team inspection) in israel before passing it to gaza. similar request was addressed before the army raid. they still chose to ignore it. can you still say without being biased that the casualties are israel fault alone? is it possible that israel defamation comes more easily?

Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn

Why Britain's Labour has become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.

Alvy (Woody Allen) and Annie (Diane Keaton) in 'Annie Hall.'
Why is it hard to fall in love, and even harder to sustain it?

The answer can be summed up in one word, narcissism, which manifests itself in three principal ways. There are ways to overcome this love of self, however.
