I don’t think the response from Erdigan was ungracious . Unless of course that is what Debka is saying . I don’t think the Turks deserved an apology myself . But if you look at the logic ….what better way to disarm a potential enemy .
Look at the big picture , Erdigan was pandering to islamic groups by even allowing that flotilla . But he underestimated the punks that were on board and the Israeli response . Turkey needs the US , and Turkey knows the US is Israels staunchest ally . So the apology also disarms Erdigan’s potential competition . Smart move by all parties involved .
