Turkey: Israel Must Admit to “Wrongful Act” in Marmara Case


turkish-deputy-prime-minister-bulent-arincTurkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc, who is leading the team negotiating the Mavi Marmara compensation issue with the Israeli government, said, “The amount of money is not the problem….There are two problematic areas. The first one is that Israel should accept that it’s paying this money as a result of its wrongful act. Nothing less than this will be accepted. And second, we are waiting for them to realize our third condition of cooperating with Turkey in making life conditions easier for Palestinians.”

Turkey and Israel are bargaining over the amount of compensation to be paid to the families of victims killed in a 2010 raid on a Gaza-bound ship, the Mavi Marmara, according to the Turkish media.

The Haberturk daily reported on Tuesday that Israel has increased the amount of compensation from $3 million to more than $15 million, while Turkey has not taken a step back from the amount it insists on – $50 million.

  1. Sure Turkey should kill innocent peaceful demonstrators in the hundreds if not thousands and Israel should apologize.

  2. Why is Israel giving these turkeys anything! When Elizer
    was attacked in Sodom and he
    went to court – he was charged
    by the court to pay his
    attackers for “Blood Letting”
