An Apology To Turkey Would Distort History


JewishPress Logo

If things quiet down on the Syrian border and Erdogan feels an internal or external need to once again incite against Israel, apologies – if indeed made – will be one more instrument in his arsenal of hatemongering.

Because if Israel apologizes Erdogan could then say “See, I was right to attack them continuously over the flotilla deaths.”

Israel would then find that nothing of permanence had been gained other than its unwarranted apologies – apologies to be documented until the end of time.

Manfred Gerstenfeld is chairman of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.He has published a number of research essays on the major aspects of apologies by countries and organizations for their participation in the Holocaust.

About the Author: Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld’s recently published book, “The War of a Million Cuts,” analyzes how Israel and Jews are delegitimized, and how these attempts at delegitimization can be fought.
