Reuters Lies: Turkey Is " Israel's only Muslim ally "

Reuters really stretches it here.

"Turkey, Israel's only Muslim ally, stepped up its rhetoric over the killings on Friday..."

Israel-Turkey relations have been strained for some time now. Turkey was once a military and economic ally, but over the last decade has withdrawn as just another extremist Muslim nation bent on Israel's destruction. Turkey ended military cooperation with Israel in 2009 after the recent Gaza conflict. Wikipedia reports:

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan heavily criticized Israel's conduct in the Gaza war at the 2009 World Economic Forum conference in Davos.

On October 11 2009, relations were strained even further when Israel was barred from Anatolian Eagle military exercise in Turkey. The aerial exercise was to consist of Turkey, Israel, the United States, and Italy. However, Turkey refused to allow Israel to attend. In response, the United States pulled out of the exercise.

Another deterioration in October 2009 was noted following the TV debut of Ayrılık (Farewell), a prime-time serial on Turkish state-sponsored television channel TRT 1 featuring fictionalized scenes of Israeli soldiers shooting Palestinian children and mistreating elderly Arabs. Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman criticized the program, and rebuked the Turkish Ambassador in front of assembled media. He subsequently apologized in the face of a Turkish threat to withdraw its ambassador.

In January 2010 Israeli politicians and media outlets condemned an episode of the popular Turkish soap opera, "Valley of the Wolves: Ambush," on private Star television that depicted the Israeli intelligence service Mossad spying inside Turkey and kidnapping Turkish babies. The program also showed Mossad attacking the Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv and taking the ambassador and his family hostage. On 11 January 2010 Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon summoned Turkish ambassador Ahmet Oguz Celikkol to a meeting, At the session, Celikkol was seated below Ayalon. With cameras rolling, Ayalon turned to his aide (without knowing the television crews were filming) and said, "The main thing is that you see that he is seated low and that we are high ... that there is one flag on the table (the Israeli flag) and that we are not smiling.

Reuters is piling the guilt on Israel, falsely portraying them as a nation that pushes away its allies. The truth is very different.

Reuters continues to falsely report that the flotilla was of "aid ships." The truth is that they were smuggling weapons, including stun grenades, gas masks, and nigh vision goggles. No mention of the terrorist ties to Al Qaeda among those on board, and no mention of their wish "to become a martyr."
