    Turkey has it's allegiance to Islam first, and common sense second. The very fact that they even have the nerve to say "end the siege" is beyond offensive. If Erdogan's best buddy in Tehran (who calls for Israel's destruction on a weekly basis) manages to smuggle a micro-nuke over into Gaza, then will Turkey come rushing to defend Israel of Hamas kills 300,000 Israelis in a nuke strike? WHERE exactly will Turkey "be" when Hezbolla rushes from the north at the same time Hamas rushes from the south? Let's make a deal, Israel will "apologize" and compensate the Turkish families, if Erdogan signs a treaty committing Turkish money to rebuild Israel after a nuclear holocaust, if there are any Jews left. You willing to put this on paper Erdogan? Because as soon as you sign this treaty you'll get your written apology and compensation for your terrorists from last year. Israel, start drilling that natural gas off the coast, so you can give Turkey the finger, that it so desperately deserves... Enough is enough already, Turkey is not an ally, they are merely the same crazy Ottomans they've always been, only now they wear suits an ties pretending they are high society...
