    Wow if that isn't a double standard compared to Israel, i don't know what is. Erdogan's actions following the flotilla incident are now exposed for what they really are- a gulf of Tonkin. And yet Erdogan still keeps the lines of communication open with Assad, the man who allows his minions to castrate small children for sport, murder those soldiers that refuse to shoot at civilians, fire on families with anti aircraft weaponry, imprison thousands for calling him bad names, smash the fingers of cartoonists who mock him, etc etc. Hey People of Turkey, that is the man your leader wants to stay in contact with, even at the risk of the ambassadors life. Wow The people of Israel feel like they've been betrayed by a friend right about now. Why was Turkey so keen on downgrading ties with Israel after the (relatively) minor incident of the flotilla, but will do anything to keep ties open with Syria, even afte their embassy was attacked!!!! Trust me, your embassy in Tel Aviv was well guarded.
