The response of the Turkish government is like a small child who, finding out that he can't get his way, throws a huge hissy fit. The Turks pushed for a UN commission, probably thinking that like any UN body, it would be reflexively anti-Israel. Instead, it came out with a reasonable report. It called out the Turks for their role in this fiasco, and did not support their position around the blockade. But, rather then reacting like adults, they are throwing a huge fit trying to bluster Israel into caving to their unreasonable demands. If you step back, what in the world is Turkey's legitimate security and national interest in Gaza? Answer is - nothing, other then the politics of Erdogan trying to position himself as the new Khalif and leader of the Moslem world. On the other hand, Israel has very legitimate security interests in keeping arms out of Gaza and out of Hamas's hands. Erdogan and the Turks better be careful, they are playing with fire here and all one can hope is that there are some sane adults somewhere in this Turkish government who will calm things down.
