    I think the international community seems to be biased, as their judgment against Israel appears hypocritical in nature, because the main issue is not whether international law was violated, but whether actually there was any violation of international law by the Israeli government. The essence of this question is that no country would love to permit or authorise its national to violate another country's territory, but right now the irony is the case: in this case, Turkey and its supporting countries are the violators of the international law. Because, as it stand, Gaza is still under Israel's control and international community should not and must not undermine Israel's control over Gaza, even though, Israel has pulled out of Gaza in 2005, Gaza is not yet a State internationally recognised. Again, Turkey made a mistake for indirectly or directly taking part in such mission, because, such support seems to be a violation of Israel's sovereignty. Turkey must remember that the Kurdastines are demanding for a self-government which has not been granted either by Turkish government or by the international community. Thus, Turkey still regards the Kurds or Kurdastines as its citizens. What of the killing of the Armenians popularly known as the Armenian genocide? Has it been forgotten by the Turkish government and the international community. Turkey must think twice before it support militants generated mission like the 'Flotilla' Mission.
