A New Period in Turkish-Israeli Relations

The Mavi Marmara ship, which has humanitarian aid to Gaza, has been 15 months since the armed raid on the International waters of the Eastern Mediterranean, on the Israeli Naval Force side (May 2010). In this RAID, 9 Turkish citizens died.

Turkey demanded that Israel apologize and pay compensation to the relatives of the martyrs. Israel did not respond to these demands. Turkey has taken the matter to the United Nations Security Council. According to reports that leaked from there, however, it was understood that a satisfactory decision would not be made to make Turkey's demands come into effect.

Today (2 September 2011) we heard Turkey's response from our Foreign Minister, Professor Mr. Ahmet Davutoğlu.

THE WINDS OF CHANGE ON THE ISLAMIC GEOGRAPHY

CIVIL COMMOTIONS:

In TUNISIA, a young man named Mohamed Bouazizi attempted suicide by setting himself on fire to protest unemployment, poverty and corruption and his images spread throughout the country just to extend the scale of protests among the public, which finally turned into a civil commotion. After the refusal of General Rachid Ammar, the Army Commander to obey the order to shoot protesters, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, the President of Tunisia, left his country and fled to Saudi Arabia after 23 years in power. Mohamed Ghannouchi, the Prime Minister of the government dissolved by Ben Ali, assumed the Presidency as required by the Tunisian Constitution; and he formed the “National Unity Government” including leaders of opposition parties in which the ministers of defense, home affairs and finance of the former government remained their positions. However, with the continuing protests, the government resigned. By the end of January, a provisional government was formed under the leadership of Mohamed Ghannouchi. The Prime Minister Ghannouchi announced that elections would be held within six months and the new government would take over.

SOLDIERS REMAINED PASSIVE IN TURKISH -ISRAEL CRISIS

The Israeli military attacks on the Gaza aid ship has a cost of Turkey 9 martyrs and 22 injured.

Our aid volunteers (466 people), our martyrs (9 martyrs), and our 22 injured were brought to our country on 03 June at 02:30 morning and 5 heavy-injured stayed in Israel because transfers were not suitable. Volunteers, martyrs, and wounds from the other 32 countries have also reached their country.

I wish mercy from Allah to our martyrs, healing to our injured, and patience to the relatives of the martyrs. Greetings to all aid volunteers.

Thanks to IHH;

These oppressed nations, the people of Gaza who live in captivity at the hands of the cruelest governments in the world, the official governments of the world states turned back and ignored them because they fear the evil of Israel, despite Israel's Violent past, we congratulate our brave volunteers with all our hearts who risked their lives to bring aid They opened a new scope and a new horizon for the Palestinian people. They made a courageous attempt that the equipped armies could not afford. The volunteers of the humanitarian convoy will see the reward for their efforts in this world and the hereafter.

IHH is the flag bearer of this convoy. While helping the oppressed, it helped our country to take an active part in the issue and reinforce the place it deserves, especially in the Islamic World. I hereby congratulate İHH board of executives, particularly Attorney Bülent Yıldırım, with the deepest admiration of mine.

Israel is Enemy of Humanity

The humanitarian aid convoy heading to Gaza, which had 600 people and 6 ships from 50 countries, was attacked from land and air by the Israeli Armed Forces at 04:30 on 31 May 2010, while it was sailing in the international waters of the Mediterranean.

According to the information received, as of this hour (31 May at 15:00), there are 19 martyrs and 60 injured. I wish the mercy of Allah for the martyrs of humanitarian aid and urgent recovery to the wounded.

Attacking humanitarian aid ships with weapons means fighting the people of the countries sending the ship, and especially the Turkish people.

Attacking the civilian, unarmed, and charitable people with guns has once again revealed the real face of ISRAEL. It is an Enemy of Humanity.

ANATOLIAN EAGLE AIR EXERCISE CRISIS

TÜRKİYE GLOBAL KARAR MEKANİZMALARINDA OLMALIDIR

ABD Devlet Başkanı, Barac Hüseyin Obama, Türkiye'yi ziyaret etti. Bu ziyaret farklı bakış açıları ile farklı kişiler tarafından yorumlandı. Ama, olaya ziyaretçinin amacı ve ülkesinin konumu açısından yaklaşılarak yorumlanması gerekir kanaatindeyim.

ABD Global bir güçtür. Devlet Başkanı da global düşünmek durumundadır. Türkiye ziyaretini de bu seviyede değerlendirmek gerekir.

Türkiye, coğrafî mevkii itibarı ile, Balkanlar, Kafkaslar ve Ortadoğu kara havzaları ile Akdeniz, Karadeniz ve Hazar Denizi Havzalarının ortasında kilit bir mevkiye sahiptir.

Yani Türkiye, Jeostratejik dairede, Coğrafi Konumu ile, bu havzalardaki ülkeleri aktif olarak etkileyip, yönlendirme imkan ve gücüne sahiptir.

Diğer taraftan dini, ırkî, tarihi bağları ve yönetim tecrübesi ile Türk ve İslâm Aleminin sahip olduğu, Asya'nın Batı yarısı ile Afrika'nın Kuzey yarısını kaplayan, iki kat'aya yayılmış, geniş coğrafya üzerindeki 60 Müslüman Ülkeyi etkileyebilen ve bu ülkelere kıyısı olan açık denizlerle ilgilenme imkanı bulabilen bir devlettir.

Yani, Türkiye, Jeopolitik Dairede, ABD dahil diğer bütün Global Aktörlerin hedefinde bulunan bir coğrafyanın lideri olabilme potansiyeline sahiptir.

HOW IS THE PALESTINE QUESTION SOLVED?

 

This question will be solved with the method used by Israel, that is, when Palestine puts a military power balancing the military power of Israel up against Israel.

Peaceful approaches will not bring Israel to justice.

Israel relies on its power and the Western support.

The weakness and the loneliness of Palestine make Israel even more aggressive.

Israel will continue to exert military power on the Palestinian People until they reach their goals.
