Turkey: Forget Flying Over Us

Turkey has banned an Israeli military flight from its airspace in apparent retaliation for Israel's interception of the Free Gaza flotilla last month, in which nine pro-Palestinian Turkish activists were killed.

"Israeli media reported that Turkey had not allowed a plane transporting military personnel to a tour of Holocaust memorial sites in Poland to cross its airspace. The aircraft, with more than 100 people on board, was forced to make a detour. Israel has not commented on the issue."

One more tour group to Holocaust Disneyland stopped. Good.

Turkey has woken up and realised the true value of its former alliance with 'the shitty little Levantine country'.
