    is that the flotilla issue was something staged by Turkey at the expense of Israel and that the apparent rejections of the Gaza offensive does not compare to the massacre you've done of the Armenian and that you are currently doing with the Kurds. Moreover, why isn't Turkey advocating for the Palestinians that are held hostage under animal conditions in the refugee camps across the Arab world? Their situation is, if not the same, is worst: they can't work, they can't study, they can't go outside the concentration camp they are locked in. This has lasted for decades and nobody seems to care because there is no political gain to achieve. So Turkey, look at yourself, looked at your past and stay away from Israel, you have plenty to solve at home!!! A small extract from amnesty international 2009 report about Turkey not even talking about 2010: "Human rights suffered in the context of political instability and military clashes. Reports of torture and other ill-treatment increased, while dissenting views were met with prosecution and intimidation. The right to freedom of peaceful assembly was denied, and law enforcement officials used excessive force to disperse demonstrations. Anti-terrorism legislation was also used to restrict freedom of expression. Unfair trials persisted especially for those prosecuted under anti-terrorism legislation, while barriers remained in bringing law enforcement officials to justice for human rights abuses. No progress was made in allowing the right to conscientious objection to military service. Forcible returns of refugees increased. Discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity persisted. Implementation of laws aimed at preventing violence against women and girls remained slow". Lets not even talk about Armenia and Cyprus. Interesting behaviour from our new human rights beacon.
