1. IF true, Erdogan continuing to fish in troubled waters...
Rafi ,   US   (11.02.12)
... suggest you address your OWN problems with Syria, Kurdish population, Armenia, etc - before messing in others' business. Pure political grand-standing and demagoguery.
2. Blockade
Ray Stuart ,   Z├╝rich/ Israel   (11.02.12)
If Egypt opens its border with Gaza on a permenant basis ,to its Arab brothers,then Gaza would have everything they need.? Yes? Any one wonder why Egypt does not do this????
3. Has as much common sense as the little monkey, none.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (11.02.12)
4. Keep on dreaming Mr. PM..
Sheik rattle & roll ,   USA   (11.02.12)
Well we all know that is not going to happen as long as the jihad idiots keep launching missiles at Israel and even if it stops and the blockade is lifted Hamas will end up being just like a well armed Hezbollah if it wasn't for the blockade. Keep the blockade until they cry uncle, the alternative is a big war.
Turkish berk.
6. Syria, please make him busy again!
Jew1 ,   Ashdod   (11.02.12)
7. What a great idea! Not!
Yakov ,   Tel Aviv   (11.02.12)
So, we can "improve" our relations, with that Israel hating despot Erdogan, by removing the only effective barrier for Hamas obtaining weapons of our destruction. Maybe we should also build Iranian centrifuges in Gaza, as well. This guy is truly living in his Islamic fantasy world. That sees to be a very catching disease! If Edogan is interested in improving anything, let him lead an effort for the terrorists to lay down arms, recognize our right to live, and denounce violence.
8. Erdogan's choice of friends
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (11.02.12)
There a Turkish saying 'KORLE YATAN SASI KALKAR' meaning he who sleeps with a blind wakes up cross eyed. Unfortunately Erdogan's choice of friends will lead Turkey to a dark future. This is very dangerous for Turkey while Turkey herself is facing a very strong Kurdish insurgence. There is not one day that goes by without a PKK attack somewhere in Turkey. How would Erdogan like it if the world support PKK same as he is supporting Hamas?
9. big mouth
captuay   (11.02.12)
erdogan is a big mouth blowtorch who got smacked down by assad. With 3 X the population of syria, he's afraid to make a move against assad but he acts tough against israel. He is a rabble rouser and bs artist when he said moslems don't kill moslems.
10. Erdogan u became into an arrogant and extremist proterrorist
Joe ,   Kfar saba israel   (11.02.12)
U are a pariah state supporting terrorist u are a dictator and and extremist who will never learn to beheave ur self long life to armenians !!!!!!
11. Hey ! Turkey, keep dreaming.
david ,   montreal,canada   (11.02.12)
12. What's the point in sucking up to Turkey
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (11.02.12)
They have no right to make demands over the Marmara and Turkey is more trouble than it could ever be worth. Who needs a liablility like Turkey?
13. Erdogan owes an apology
DavidM ,   USA   (11.02.12)
If Mr. Erdogan wants an apology he can start by giving one to the Armenians who were murdered by his government.
14. And why am I not surprised?
Israeli 2   (11.02.12)
15. Tha Gazan deserve a circus every once in a while, and...
Persian CAT   (11.02.12)
Erdogan can bring the best of Turkish clowns to Gaza with himself as the master.
16. This clown really thinks Israel needs him, dream on
Mike ,   Israel   (11.02.12)
17. Ode from Erdogan
Tim ,   Brighton   (11.02.12)
Ode from Erdogan But can anyone put that to a tune? Open up Gaza without guarantees Apologise about the Flotilla Then when youve done that you must say please And send me the keys to a Villa!
18. I wish him a good trip
Ethan Schwartz ,   Eilat   (11.02.12)
I wonder if he will recognise reality when it stares him in the eye. I'm sure Paliwood will be working overtime.
19. Wrong-headed approach once again
Carl ,   USA   (11.02.12)
If Erdogan is truly interested in peace, he should focus on the the cause - endless Palestinian aggression - instead of the Israeli response. Convincing Hamas to give up their pursuit of terrorism and accept the existence of Israel would leave no reason for a blockade. But the Hamas charter still calls for Israel's destruction and they are continuing to import weapons through all possible channels.
20. Guess why that is...
TanerNYC ,   New York   (11.02.12)
Because Egypt is not allowed to open the border. Israel will not let Egypt open the border and their excuse is "weapons smuggle" to Gaza. But u did know that right?
21. Erdogan should visit Syria - but he is a big mouthed coward
Abraham ben Jacob ,   Canada   (11.02.12)
He is very afraid to go to Syria to "mend" the really bad situation.
22. Forgive Erdogan' s diplomatic "moves":
Ahmet Kandemir ,   Izmir   (11.02.12)
23. Little Tayyip is acting hormonal
Devorah   (11.02.12)
Tayyip, stop it already! If you weren't a man, I would swear you were a woman going through an extended time of "special" days.
24. Taner from NYC
David Israel ,   New York, USA   (11.02.12)
Firstly: I hope you are surviving OK in NY. Actually since the new Islamic brotherhood came to government in Egypt they are not respecting all the old agreements with Israel. But u did know that right?
25. Nooooooooooooo!!!
Turkish girl ,   Turkey   (11.02.12)
Enough! OMG! Enough! Erdogan go to Gaza and stay there don't come back! I'm sick and tired of these palestinians! streets are full of palestinians- here in Turkey. they always tell us how they are innocent poor angels and how ''poor'' Gaza is.... ! May God protect Israel and Turkey from these kind of people
26. #22
Obsessive ,   Turkey   (11.02.12)
Asking forgiveness from a right-wing/religious society? Not suitable. Not deserving yet. Even Abbas has supported a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders today. You can only ask forgiveness from the Leftists & Center for Erdogan's Haniyeh connection.
27. smart
jhonny ,   norway   (11.02.12)
simple divide and conquer.. trying to separate hamas from iran and its axes of evil and let hamas into the other side of evil " (Qatar, turkey ex..) but im sure israel would rather have hamas on the Qatar side, thats why its letting all those visit through.. smart smart
28. Erdogan visiting Gaza
Rhonda ,   Chicago, USA   (11.03.12)
I hope he goes to Gaza. Then maybe people in the west can see he really is in bed with the terrorist group Hamas.
Iranian Jew ,   LA   (11.03.12)
He is not helping anyone with his childish decisions and irrational behavior. If you mean peace, then convince Egypt to take Gaza back and Jordan to accept WB as a province. That is the real peace. Blockade and the useless apology is just excuses. Ham ass will start a war as soon as the blockade is lifted and Iran is there. Go to hell Erdogan! Or just stay in Gaza for good. This guy only is looking for a fake PR from the Palestinians to serve his own ego.
30. Erdogan first go to Syria
Isaac ,   Antartica   (11.03.12)
He is preparing for the midterm-elections next year.
