Flotilla assault serves to isolate Israel

Kourosh Ziabari - Press TV: Israel's brutal nature is comprehensibly evident to everyone. The independent nations of the world in Asia, Africa and Latin America know well that Israel's existence is blended with inhumanity and violence.

Even the ordinary people in the Northern America and Europe are well aware of the fact that Israel is an insane and vicious regime; it's only their respective governments who refuse to submit to the reality of Israel and believe that this rogue state does not benefit the international community in any way.

Israel's suicidal incursion into the flotilla of humanitarian aids which was heading from Turkey to the besieged Gaza strip once again discredited the flimsy legitimacy of Tel Aviv. As Trudy Rubin, the pro-Israel columnist of the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote on Thursday, this "botched" attack neared Israel to an irreparable loss: its diplomatic ties with Turkey.

The pro-Zionist writer, who repeatedly called Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan an emotional man in her article, fears that Israel's thoughtless and hysterical treatment of the peace activists aboard the Freedom Flotilla might lead to Tel Aviv's growing isolation and its separation from its sole Muslim partner in the Middle East.

Rubbin refers to her 2008 interview with Mr. Erdogan in which the Turkish premier had angrily complained that Israel did not allow the humanitarian aids to be transferred to the besieged Gaza strip. She suggests that Israel should make an official apology to Turkey and take some tactical steps to repair its already strained ties with the Muslim nation and make up for the serious trouble it has been entangled in. She also noted that Israel should temporarily allow the humanitarian aids in the Gaza strip so as to pacify the growing international agitation against Tel Aviv.
