    Islamic pride and prejudice loves to receive Jewish apologies and acquiescence even though there is nothing to be sorry about or to rightfully give in to. My first guess when Israel issued an apology to Turkey directly after Pres. Obama's visit was that the stage was being set for a joint strike on Iran's nuclear facilities and Turkisk airspace was important for this mission so Bibi was pressured into making amends. But Erdogan's pompous pride knows no bounds and he's demanding more concessions in guile (as no one can literally be that ignorant) like Israel lifting its necessary blockade of Gaza whick will only lead to a much more serious war later with the IDF having to gut Gaza like a Mediterranean cod to go after the embedded terrorists there. Erdogan will only have more scathing criticism for Israel then and certainly no apologies for his mistaken foreign policies regarding the lifting of the blockade. Next Erdogan is pompous enough to consider demanding that the land eventually revert to when it was part of the "glorious" Ottoman Empire, actually more its backwater of neglect.
