      Landau: Turkey Should be the One to Apologize

      In response to Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan’s remarks on the weekend, when he reiterated his demand for an Israeli apology over the flotilla incident, National Infrastructures Minister Uzi Landau said: “Turkey is the one that needs to apologize for its involvement in the provocative Marmara flotilla. All indications hint that Turkey was behind the terrorist organization IHH.”

      Landau added that “It is time to understand that giving in to pressure will lead to the fact that this apology will be construed as a confession of our guilt. It is time to stop apologizing.”
