Unlike our politicians that flee from principle like a fugitive flees the police, Erdogan is drawing a line in the sand and refusing to budge from his position. This is dangerous rhetoric, but Israel should have not killed those people in the first place, then it should not have confiscated all those laptops and cameras and detained peaceful protesters the way it did, it should have apologized but did not out of stubborn pride and moral self-righteousness. Erdogan wants to send an armed escort. This after Turkey enacts sanctions against Israel on a few fronts. This guy is serious and I respect his steadfastness.
