  • 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.

  • Davos Outflow Is the Beginning of a New Process

    In Davos, from the mouth of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkey has announced that it is the guardian of the oppressed and that it is prepared to protect the law of the Islamic World.
    The attitude we miss was exhibited in Davos.
    The reaction given was worthy of the world-leader countries.

    The comments of the silly people, cannot show wrong this historic event.
    Our external representatives should have more personality.
    Our people must first, understand the strength and importance of Turkey.
    Israel received the reaction it had not seen in the world from Prime Minister Mr.Tayyip Erdoğan.
    Considerable determination and weight have been put as much as activating the military force against Israel.
    Israel will not be able to act recklessly anymore.
    It will not be able to continue its carnages.
    Turkey's warnings will be taken into consideration more.
    Turkey's determination has been explained in a manner that it understands.




    Everything has a point of satisfaction. The point of satisfaction in wars, where victory turns into defeat, it is the last point at which attack, or defense can be sustained. Leaders and competent commanders plan a ceasefire and peace before they reach this point.

    The Jewish population in Israel is about four million people. The male population of the military age can be up to 700 thousand. The number of the military staff in the army is about 500 thousand. If all his reserves are obliged to summon them to the task, no one is left at home and at work. It cannot continue this situation for a long time.

    The war strategy it has implemented so far is to rapidly seize its targets by attacking with the armored units in its dominant form and in its intense air support, allowing UN and western countries to enter as they approach this stage, making a ceasefire without breaking the pace of their combat.


    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;
