If you are an Islamist government, your credentials and password are to hate and bash Israel. If you haven't done that persuasively enough, so you encourage a jihadist group like IHH, and encourage it to sail to Gaza. Whatever happens, you bash israel, and your stature as an Islamist superpower grows. That was Turkey's design in the first place, and continues to be now with Turkey trying to turn Israel into a puddle, humiliating her for a planned provocation by Erdogan's government. Israel would remain exactly as isolated by turkey with or without the fad of the insistent apology for the 9 thugs who made out of the Israeli commandos minced meat before they resorted to ammunition to save their lives. Everybody saw on camera their "Allahu Wakbar" and their anti-Semitic chants on youtube, and once the Israeli commandos were on boards, they beat them with iron clubs. axes, and knives. And they have the nerve to ask for an apology which was the way to keep them as "firsts against Israel" in the Arab and Muslim street. There won't be a mending of ties as long as Turkey gallops speedily to Byzantium in 1453, to recreate its history from back then onwards.
