Reconciliation bodes ill.
Turkey and Israel reconciled. Headlines announced it. They reflect grand betrayal. It's duplicitous. It's too little, too late. More on that below.
Israel bears full responsibility. Officials ordering nine cold-blooded murders remain unaccountable. Corpses won't be reborn. Family survivors aren't assuaged. They deserve better. They were promised justice. They're denied it.
On May 31, 2010, Israeli commandos interdicted Freedom Flotilla vessels. They did so lawlessly. They were in international waters. They tried bringing humanitarian aid to besieged Gazans.
Nine Turkish nationals were slaughtered. They were marked for death. They were assassinated in cold blood. Dozens more were wounded.
They were aboard the Mavi Marmara mother ship. Everyone on board was arrested. They were treated harshly in detention. Israel's unapologetic. Words claiming otherwise ring hollow.
