    Philip Gordon has a point, the man is not completely wrong. Many are asking this question seriously. Erdogan's words and actions have rised many eyerows not just in the US but in the EU as well and I might remind you guys that this didnt start with the flottilla but it started years ago. Only 1 single Example out of many : Erdogan visited Germany a few years ago and had a speech in some auditorium in front of ten thousands of turks, many of them owners of the german passport. Erdogan's message was "while you live in germany remain turk". He also insisted in front of german chancellor Merkel that german schools should educate kids of turkish decent in turkish as a first language not german. I dont remember exactly his words but he also said something like "Assimilation with the germans means betrayal to turkish roots". As much of a nationalist this guy might be or not, I think Gordon Philip was not completely wrong to ask that question. One more thing in addition : I am not an american nor am I jewish, but I think the comparision of the flotilla to 9.11 was insulting. Have a nice day
