Israel Destroying NATO
After an extensive history of slaughtering American peace activists -- a history that is largely hidden by the U.S. media -- Israel is now facing down Turkey by refusing to provide even an apology for the murders, slaughter, and executions of American and Turkish citizens. This is one of the many criminal extensions of an Israeli foreign policy that condones acts of piracy in international waters to enforce crimes of ethnic cleansing and starvation upon Palestinians.
This war of Israeli stubbornness and illegality versus Turkey's demand for international law and respect for its sovereignty is going to have monumental implications for a U.S. foreign policy that continues to allow a pariah state that is increasingly becoming more belligerent and isolated to subvert, sacrifice and bargain with U.S. foreign policy and security objectives.
Turkey's demand for an apology from Israel has now escalated into a dangerous game of chicken between two nations driving straight towards a head-on collision that may result in Turkey initiating a drive towards nuclear weapons and closer ties with Islamic nations already having nuclear energy or weapons programs.
Turkey, a NATO member, has decided to escort humanitarian aid ships to Palestine in defiance of the illegal Israeli blockade. Israel's radical and belligerent foreign policy has allowed itself to be painted into a corner that will result in a humanitarian mission being distorted into an act aggression and provocation. But such an analysis is a skewed and ironic interpretation of events, considering all Turkey wanted was an apology for the massacre of its unarmed civilians on an aid ship that included U.S. and British dignitaries.
