At least I think that is what this article is saying. This is one of the flimsiest excuses I have ever read. It just proves to me (and anyone who cares to pay attention) that people will see what they want to see, and believe what they want to believe. Last year when Israel boarded the Gaza-bound ship from Turkey the supposed humanitarian group used pipes, guns and what ever else was at hand to thrash the Israeli who knew something very fishy was afoot.
What the Turks did was wrong.
1. They were warned what would happen if they came into Israeli waters.
2. Self-defense was warranted when the Israelis were viciously attacked.
3. There was supposed to be no weapons on board, only food stuffs and medical supplies.
4. Weapons were found with little trouble.
Now, Turkey is cutting off all ties with Israel because they won't apologize for what happened last year.
There is something incredibly wrong with this picture.
This reminds me so much of what Nehemiah said in chapter 4.
Neh 4:14 After looking things over I stood up and spoke to the nobles, officials, and everyone else: "Don't be afraid of them. Put your minds on the Master, great and awesome, and then fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your homes."
15 Our enemies learned that we knew all about their plan and that God had frustrated it. And we went back to the wall and went to work. 16 From then on half of my young men worked while the other half stood guard with lances, shields, bows, and mail armor. Military officers served as backup for everyone in Judah who was at work rebuilding the wall. 17 The common laborers held a tool in one hand and a spear in the other. 18 Each of the builders had a sword strapped to his side as he worked. I kept the trumpeter at my side to sound the alert. 19 Then I spoke to the nobles and officials and everyone else: "There's a lot of work going on and we are spread out all along the wall, separated from each other. 20 When you hear the trumpet call, join us there; our God will fight for us."
God will fight for us when we give Him absolute control.
