Bulgaria: Turkey Moves to Downgrade Relations with Israel over 2010 Flotilla Raid The coffins of victims of activists who had been on board the Mavi Marmara, one of the ships in the Freedom Flotilla convoy with humanitarian aid for Gaza, are loaded onto trucks after they arrive at Ataturk Airport in Ankara, Turkey on early 03 June 2010

Turkey will downgrade diplomatic relations with Israel to the lowest level and suspend key commercial and military agreements with it over its refusal to apologize for the 2010 Mavi Marmara flotilla raid.

Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu revealed his country's measures on Friday after a UN probe into Israel's deadly raid on a 2010 flotilla to Gaza known as the Palmer Commission Report, were leaked to The New York Times Thursday

The way Israeli forces boarded the vessels trying to break that blockade 15 months ago was excessive and unreasonable, even though Israel's naval blockade of Gaza is both legal and appropriate. the report says, according to The New York Times.

"Turkey and Israel should resume full diplomatic relations, repairing their relationship in the interests of stability in the Middle East and international peace and security," the Palmer Commission Report says. However, Turkey's reaction has shown the the relations between it and Israel will be difficult to repair.

Jerusalem sources have pointed out that the report shows Israel's actions did not violate international law, Ynet has reported.

Your choice, Dino. But, imho, Part 9 (esp. starting from the second minute of play)
would do better for Your goal...:-)

By the way, Sa-sha:

Given the austerity regime in Greece at the moment, can I use Sviridov's devine piece with the appropriate heading?

Cordial thanks, Dino. While my long walks 'per pedes apostolorum' I hear Sviridov's
divine music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGCOgnlp4L4&feature=related

Dino, this 'raven' is not the Greek demi-god, sure, but he's right, my English is
awful: 'govno', 'lame horse', 'dead carcass'. Such is the Form. But the Content
exists as well: idea, thought, 'fresh blood' of the spiritual life...Listen,Father, I
shall tell You a fable:"Once upon a time The Eagle asked the Raven:tell me, my
good raven-the-bird,how is it that your race lives to the age of 300years,while
we Eagles only live to the age of thirty and three?- 'The reason, my good Sir, is,
because You devour your prey alive whilst we live upon dead carcasses.' The
Eagle thought,well,We shall try that too. So,they thereupon went out together,
found a dead horse and alighted upon it. The raven began to feed & enjoyed it.
The Eagle tried several morsels, shook his pinions & saidv to the Raven: Nay,
brother Raven, rather than live 300 years upon dead horses, I better once
feast upon a live victim and then let Fate do its worst!". You see, Father, those
striving for the Content, for the 'fresh blood' of the ideas, they 'spit' on 'dead
horses', while the 'good ravens' can't live without 'dead carcasses', without
'govno'. It is their 'modus vivendi'. And "Thus it was, thus it is and always will
be", thanks for The Hymn, Father!

Sorry, Hercules, Russian language is really very difficult. Probably You've had in
mind: " Если Вы русский, то это всё объясняет!" [~"If You are Russian, then it
explains everything"] ?

Hercules the Greek demi-god does not understand English. Better to say it to him in Russian:

Да здравствует Россия!

For once I agree with you… I should not reply or correspond with another imbecile like you…….

Hercules, You "don't understand" & yet You reply

sa-sha - 16 Sep 2011 // 11:22:30

Hercules, You "don't understand" & yet You reply. You are a best friend of a
science known as 'logic'... Well, it seems that my GOod-For-NOthing English (short
form: 'gofno', honest form: 'govno' [лайма]) is the only salvation for You in the
sudden dispute. My govno is Your salvation. I invite You to appreciate this fact.
Apart from that, please, thank 'the half-wit Greek' for his restrained reaction to Your
troublesome & shameful flew-bites. And then You may 'disappear in the ether'.
Have a nice day, богатырь хуев [хрян герой].....

The 'warm' You will feel is not that of the Sun (which I had in mind originally), but that of 'the half-wit Greek's
testicles. And if You, Hercules, "try harder", if You force Yourself to "see" & to "read"
not in toilets only, then You & Your brain will reach that acme. Hoc fac et vinces!
I believe in You, Hercules.

Firstly, your explanation is even more complicated and enigmatic than your original posting… Where the hell did you learn to write English on Mars?

Gobbledegook, twaddle, claptrap, hogwash, codswallop, gibberish etc, etc, are some of the words that come to mind when reading your offerings. Write plain English so that we can understand you or disappear in the ether…..

I'm really sorry, Hercules. Your proud nick seems to have not much in common with
Your intellectual power. What on earth is not clear in "Lift Your hand & feel something
warm"?! You've connected it with 'the Greek half-wit'? O.K. I take it into account &
"construct my sentence so that all you can comprehend": The 'warm' You will feel
is not that of the Sun (which I had in mind originally), but that of 'the half-wit Greek's
testicles. And if You, Hercules, "try harder", if You force Yourself to "see" & to "read"
not in toilets only, then You & Your brain will reach that acme. Hoc fac et vinces!
I believe in You, Hercules.
