Bernard Baum says:

As long as people understand the potential that will or might flow from this coerced “apology” . I guess if practiced by nations , blackmail becomes political expediency

Client states are ultimately not viable. Israel, after the Six Day War and Yom Kippur wars was an independant country. Is it still one? Who is really calling the shots in Israeli policy? Israel and Jews should not apologize for exisiting.
The liberal and internationalist readers of the Tablet should keep in mind that 65 yerars after the end of World War II, Japan has yet to apologize fot its atrocious behavior. And of course, Turkey still denies the Armenian genocide ever occurred. Yet Israel feels the need to apologize. It’s nuts!

Sharon B. says:

It is time and necessary for peace between Turkey and Israel… all will benefit from this reinstated politcal friendship.
