As the Turkish Prime Minister has indicated, the next time a flotilla travels to
This is a bold stand for Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan to take. And it is also the correct one. Israel should not be the only country in the Middle East that protects its citizens using military force. Israel should not have a monopoly on the use of force.
Turkey should also protect its citizens. And if the next flotilla comes under attack from the Israel Defence Force, the Turkish navy should respond in kind. We already know that the Turkish military is capable of massive retaliation. The Kurdish terrorist group PKK has experienced the wrath of the Turkish military.
It is high time Israel is subjected to the same level of punishment that the PKK has experienced. After all, both Israel and the PKK are terrorist entities. The difference between the two is that the PKK is a non-state actor while Israel is a state actor. But both are terrorist entities. And they both ought to be treated as such.
