Obama Pressures Israel to Apologize to Turkey For Defending Itself From Terrorist Flotilla
Does this surprise anyone?
Barack Obama is pressuring Israel to apologize to Turkey for defending itself from a flotilla of Islamic terrorists who attacked Israeli soldiers in May.

Only 19% of American voters blame Israel for the flotilla ambush.
Tensions between Turkey and Israel escalated Monday as Turkey’s foreign minister said his country would sever diplomatic relations with Israel unless it either apologizes for its deadly raid on a Turkish aid ship or accepts an international inquiry into the incident.
The threat came as Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu prepares to meet Tuesday in Washington with President Obama. A Western diplomat, who spoke on the condition of anonymity before the foreign minister made his comments, said Obama plans to press the Israeli leader to apologize to defuse tensions.
“The president is very concerned about the breakdown in Turkish-Israeli relations,” the diplomat said. Asked if he thought Obama could persuade Netanyahu to apologize, the diplomat added: “I’m sure he’ll give it the college try.”
63% of Israelis were upset with President Obama’s lame response to the Gaza Terror Flotilla. Wait until they hear about this!
