GOOD! But...we need to remember that certain factions in that culture will never accept peace with Israel because their religion demands that they kill Jews.

Good news for whom? A facesaving opportunity for Turkey and no change in the Zionist policy towards Palestinians.

"Netanyahu issued an apology in 2013, at US President Barack Obama’s urging, for “any error that may have led to the loss of life.” The sides have reportedly reached agreement on the establishment of a fund of $20 million for the families.

But there was no mention in the PMO statement on Thursday of the Gaza blockade issue, though Israeli officials have said repeatedly that Israel will not lift the maritime blockade and allow cargo into Gaza without security checks.

What seems to be emerging, however, is a situation whereby Erdogan will be able to save face by claiming commitments by Israel to continue to allow the transfer of more products overland into the Strip".

NO Religion demands anyone physically KILL anyone. . .

Humankind's is so dumb that it cannot grasp anything beyond a LITERAL interpretation.
