    Ok, here you're talking. You let Turks have their own opinion on their history, you let them decide what to call genocide, and what not, in spite of the world public opinion. 95 years has passed since the tragedy, and NOT ONE Turkish government admitted to call it genocide. In spite of the whole world's public opinion.They did not admit it after 2 years, 5 years, 10, 20, 40, 70, 95 years, NOT ONCE. So, what do Turks want from Israel ? They want Israel to stop thinking about its own problems and start to feel for Palestinians ? Now YOU put yourself in Israel's government shoes. Would you listen to Turkish demands seriously ? Or would you care about your own problems and ignore as to what our peace-loving friends from Istanbul are saying ? Now, I personally may not think this is the right way. But I just follow your logic, extrapolate from your views on Turkey's behavior to Israel's case.
