Turkey Humiliates Expelled Israeli Ambassador; Israel Responds in Kind

In an exchange of insulting gestures, Turkey and Israel subjected each other’s diplomats to public security checks that are normally not carried out on government officials, inviting the media to record and broadcast the proceedings.

First, Israeli Ambassador Eitan Na’eh went to the airport Wednesday after being told to leave Turkey following Monday’s violence at the Gaza-Israel border that allegedly resulted in some 60 Palestinian deaths and 2,700 injuries, infuriating President Recep Erdoğan. Before Naeh boarded the plane as Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport, the ambassador was subjected to what Israel’s Foreign Ministry described as a “harsh” security check.

Turkish media outlets were invited by the Turkish government to film Naeh during the security checks in what appears to be a deliberate attempt to humiliate the Israeli ambassador.

Tensions between Ankara and Jerusalem escalated following the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem – a move Turkey’s government strongly opposed. Turkey also excoriated Israel over its use of force to prevent rioters from infiltrating into Israeli territory.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, whose country hosts a number of Hamas leaders living in exile, denied on Tuesday that Hamas is a terrorist organization, calling the terror group a “resistance movement”.

“Reminder to Netanyahu: Hamas is not a terrorist organization and Palestinians are not terrorists. It is a resistance movement that defends the Palestinian homeland against an occupying power. The world stands in solidarity with the people of Palestine against their oppressors.”

  1. How sad for the Turkish government to display such childish actions as to embarrass Na’eh . The only embarrassment is for the Turks to show how ridiculous and stupid they really are. Turkey has always been and always be a backward country so good riddens to you.

  2. I AM NOT SURPRISE ABOUT TURKEY, WHICH IS A MUSLIM NATION AND HATES ISRAEL THAT THEY WOULD SIDE WITH WITH A TERRORIST GROUP SUCH AS HAMAS. IT WAS HAMAS THAT KILLED THOSE PALESTINIANS NOT ISRAEL. THE PALESTINIANS WERE WARN NOT TO GO BY THE WALL IN THE GAZA STRIP BUT HAMAS MADE THE PALESTINIANS GO TO THE WALL AND TOLD THEM THAT THEY WERE TO CROSS OVER ISRAEL’S BORDER. HAMAS KNEW IF THE PALESTINIANS TRY TO CROSS OVER ISRAEL’S BORDER THAT THEY WOULD BE STOP FIRST BY RUBBER BULLETS AND THEN BY GUN SHOTS. ISRAEL HAD TO PROTECT THEIR OWN CITIZENS BECAUSE HAMAS WANTED TO KILL SOME OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE ON THE VERY DAY THAT THE USA WAS AGREEING WITH ISRAEL THAT JERUSALEM WAS THEIR CAPITAL BY THE USA PLACING AN EMBASSY IN JERUSALEM. THE PALESTINIANS NEVER EXISTED. THEY HAD NO LAND! THE PALESTINIANS WERE JUST ARABS IN THE AREA THAT THEY BROUGHT TOGETHER AND GAVE THE NAME PALESTINIANS. MOST OF THE UN MEMBERS HATE THE JEWISH PEOPLE AND WOULD RATHER SEE THEM DIE. IT WAS NOT THE JEWISH PEOPLE THAT KILLED THE PALESTINIANS BUT IT WAS HAMAS THAT KILLED THEM. HAMAS FORCE THE PALESTINIANS TO CROSS OVER ISRAEL’S BORDER KNOWING THAT ISRAEL WOULD HAVE TO TRY TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AGAINST THEM, WHICH MEANT ISRAEL WOULD HAVE TO KILL SOME PALESTINIANS THAT TRY TO CROSS OVER ISRAEL’S BORDER. HAMAS KNEW THIS–THAT IS WHY THEY FORCE SOME PALESTINIANS TO CROSS OVER ISRAEL’S BORDER KNOWING ISRAEL WOULD GET BLAMED FOR IT, WHICH WOULD MAKE THEM HAPPY! THE UN IN NY THINK PEOPLE WILL JUST BELIEVE WHATEVER THEY SAY THAT ISRAEL HAS DONE BUT PEOPLE ARE NOT STUPID.
    THEY KNOW MOST OF THE NATIONS IN THE UN ARE HATERS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE. IT IS HAMAS THAT IS STUPID AND MOST OF THE NY UN NATIONS THAT ARE HATERS OF THE JEWISH NATION ARE IGNORANT! THE NY UN NATIONS THAT HAVE COME AGAINST ISRAEL WILL BE KNOWN TO LOVE TERRORISTS LIKE HAMAS UNLESS THEY ARE IGNORANT CONCERNING WHO HAMAS IS!!!
