Israel-Turkey Friendship Society Suspends Activity

Head of the Knesset's Israel-Turkey Friendship Society, MK Robert Tevaiev, says the group has suspended its activity following Turkish support for the pro-Gaza flotilla. Tevaiev says the Turkish President is more interested in provocations than in supporting the Palestininians.

Turkey, which has produced several state-supported anti-Israel movies in the past year, and increased its support for Iran, took out full page ads in Israeli newspapers Monday encouraging tourism to it's shores.
