According to a Lebanese report on Saturday, Erdogan is considering traveling to Gaza aboard a Turkish navy vessel accompanying a new attempt by protest boats to break Israel's maritime blockade.
On Monday a senior IDF commander said Israel would view an attempt by Erdogan to sail to Gaza as an act of war.
"If he comes here with Turkish warships there can be no doubt that it would amount to a declaration of war," Major-General (Res.) Uzi Dayan told Army Radio.
"We need to draw a clear line and say that whoever crosses it will not be boarded but sunk."
A 19-year-old American slain during an Israeli raid of the Mavi Marmara, a vessel transporting humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip, trusted that his US citizenship would provide a degree of protection, his father has said, in remarks that underscore the lack of Israeli regard for even its greatest ally...
...Indicating that the family expected the US administration to launch an investigation, Doğan said: “The US has the right to start an investigation into any incident that concerns a US citizen who is abroad. Why hasn’t an investigation been launched for our son? Why isn’t anyone following the case?” Explaining that his son had depended on his US citizenship when embarking on the journey, Doğan said: “He left with confidence, saying ‘I am an American, they wouldn’t do anything to me.’ He was thinking, ‘I’ll go with this passport, and I will be able to help.’ He never thought he would come across such a thing, because his purpose was solely to provide humanitarian aid.” İstanbul Today’s Zaman with wires
Galloway announces new land and sea convoys to break the siege of Gaza
Speaking at a demonstration in London on 5th June which organisers estimated to be more than 20,000 strong, George Galloway announced new land and sea convoys to break the siege of Gaza.
"After extensive discussion in Istanbul," said Galloway, "I can announce that a land convoy will leave Britain shortly after the end of Ramadan in September this year and travel through Europe, down through Turkey and Syria into Jordan. We will ask the Egyptian government then to ensure passage from the port of Aqaba to Rafah and into Gaza.
"At exactly the same time a flotilla of boats will be leaving to tour the countries of the Mediterranean before heading for Gaza.
"These combined sea and land convoys will be co-coordinated by Viva Palestina with other organisations in Britain and with our friends throughout the Middle East and in Turkey."
