Poll: Israelis Believe Apology to Turkey Was a Mistake


The diplomatic dispute between Israel and Turkey may have come to an end earlier this year when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu apologized to his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan for the May 2010 Gaza flotilla raid, but a new poll shows that trust between the two nations has yet to recover.

According to the poll, which was commissioned by the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies and appeared on Monday in the Israel Hayom daily, 85% of Israelis say the chances of their going on vacation to Turkey in the near future are very low.
