Turkey is planning a gesture that will challenge Israel and provide support to Gaza's Hamas leaders next month. A flotilla of ships funded by Turkey will approach Gaza in May, in an attempt to challenge Israeli control at sea - or, as organizers put it, “break Israel's illegal blockade on Gaza.”
While residents of Gaza have access to the sea, the Israel Navy prevents travel by sea between Gaza and surrounding countries, in an attempt to prevent weapons smuggling.

Good. Turkey is the only country IN THE WORLD that has the balls and the means behind it to stand up to Israel's war crimes.
The IHH group will be joined by ships from Britain, Greece, and Ireland in the attempt to break Israel's control at sea. The delegation will include members of parliament and journalists, organizers said.
Chechen terrorists!? I think you missed the 80's and 90's. We(the USA) also supported them. They were being killed just like the Jews back in WWII! Maybe if entire citys hadn't been wiped out the new chechen rebels wouldn't be so mad at russia and Putin....no?
Every country has a right to arm itself and it's people, even if Hamas is their government. It's simply none of our business.

Turks & Israel have no historical animosity towards each other .
I am sure a deal will be brokered and a softer Israel and softer Palestian would have chance to emerge .
Turkish Government NEVER supported Chechens .
Turkish Intellegence Service was the provider of the satellite phone to assasinated Chechen President Cahar Dudayev.
Cahar Dudayev used it to talk to outside world . ( Outside of USSR , shortly BBC & CNN )
Russians were giving the frequency of this satellite phone and that is how they were able to kill the Chechen President with a MIG missile .
Turks do like the Chechens and Turks do like other muslim caucasus nations .
Turkish Government has been rewarded with increasing commercial ties with Russia .
In fact Turkey & Russia are going to lift visas for each others nationals soon .
So , why would Russia cooperate with Turkey if the Chechens were supported by Turkey ?
Doesn't make sense , does it ?
Going back to Israel issue ; it's simply a political plot .
Turks & Hebrews get on fine .
Current Israel government is not the best Israeli government .
Even the friends of Israel is muttering about it and Turkey is just flexing it's old Ottoman muscles .
Business as usual , nothing to see here .

Turkey is also a NATO member. I wonder what NATO will do if Israel engage and fires upon this fleet. What would the US do.?
