    To the rabid haters of Netanyahu club: January 2009: Ehud Olmert / Tzipi Livni still Prime Minister of Israel, Shimon Peres attends a forum in DAVOS, Switzerland. Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey: ?Mr. Peres, you are older than me, Your voice comes out in a very loud tone. And the loudness of your voice has to do with a guilty conscience. My voice, however, will not come out in the same tone. When it comes to killing, you know well how to kill.? [Erdogan, angry that Peres allowed to speak.] Erdogan gathered up his papers and departed. Mr. Peres pointed at the departing Mr. Erdogan and said Turkey would have reacted the same way had rockets been falling on Istanbul. Mr. Peres called Mr. Erdogan five minutes later to apologize. TWO NOTES: 1) This was BEFORE Netanyahu came into office in 2009. 2) This is BEFORE Danny Ayalon's inept response to Turkey's TV show "Valley of the Wolves: Ambush," (which told the audience that Jews kidnap Turkish babies).
