UPDATE: According to Fox News, Netanyahu also agreed to compensate the families of the victims:

Obama, who arrived in Jordan Friday after his first visit to Israel as president, had discussed relations with Turkey during his time on the ground meeting with Israeli officials. This culminated with the call from the tarmac to Erdogan on Friday. Netanyahu also reportedly agreed to compensate the families of the victims.

So what did Obama hang over Netanyahu’s head in order for him to agree? This really does smell like blackmail of some sort to me.

* * * ORIGINAL ARTICLE * * *

This is freaking unbelievable. Israel did absolutely nothing wrong in the 2010 flotilla incident. Those jihadists attacked Israel and deserved what they got. They intended to attack Israel from the beginning. There was no reason for Netanyahu to apologize for anything.

Obama is a disgrace to America and to the world:

PJ TATLER – President Obama went to the Middle East with hopes of stamping his signature on the stalled peace process, but comes home claiming another diplomatic victory as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu apologized to Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for the Gaza flotilla incident.

According to senior administration officials, after Obama’s needling Netanyahu phoned Erdogan for the first time since 2009 and apologized for the Mavi Mara flotilla incident and acknowledged “operational mistakes.” Erdogan accepted the apology.

The officials said Netanyahu made the call from a trailer at the airport just before Obama took off. At some point, Obama hopped on the phone in the 30-minute conversation.

One official called a “first step” toward normalization of relations between the two countries and both added it had been a topic of talks with Obama this week.

“I welcome the call today between Prime Minister Netanyahu and Prime Minister Erdogan. The United States deeply values our close partnerships with both Turkey and Israel, and we attach great importance to the restoration of positive relations between them in order to advance regional peace and security,” Obama said in a statement.

    Erdogan should apologize to Israel. Everyone who voted for Barack Hussein Obama should apologize to America and to the world.

    This is deeply disgusting by BHO – but on the other hand, it looks as if this is all he got out of PM Netanyahu, who probably saw this as a cheap price to pay to get rid of BHO and his meddling.
    IAW: BHO went all the way to Jerusalem, and all he got for his muslim brothers was a measly phone call from Netanyahu – who’s probably been in talks with Erdogan behind the scenes for some time anyway, seeing that there is this little conflict taking place in both their backyards, called Syria …

    Obama, the UN and most liberals are propagandists for Islam.   To see the true nature of this global hate group – go to the Religion of Peace site:  http://www.religionofpeace.com

    There have been 20,500+ deadly Islamic terrorist jihad attacks since 9/11/01

  • deTocqueville1

    I believe Bibi is a good man, unfortunately he is also a politician first and we have seen in the past he talks a good game only to fold in the end. Very  sad.

    • CO2isGood

      deTocqueville1 
      When surrounded by enemies, and played by your “friends” politics become more than mere politics. Bibi is trying to secure the fate of Israel against very complex political ramifications that could lead to war before the timing is right. Making an error in the current environment could be disastrous.

  • colliemum

    If BHO made Netanyahu to offer compensation to Turkey, above just making the ‘apology’ phone call, then there must have been indeed some serious blackmail going on, I agree, Rightscoop.
    On the other hand, I still can’t see Bibi being the loser here, being outplayed by BHO. I wish we could learn what BHO had to offer to get PM Netanyahu to do such a thing.

  • Amjean

    I think you have it right;  Bibi was between a “rock and a hard place” and had to placate Obama.  My opinion, however, is that Obama will do little or nothing to support Israel.  Just look how he is helping turn the middle east into the Muslim Brotherhood’s kingdom.  The only reason Obama would lend a hand to Israel is to bow to public opinion.  His trip to Israel is nothing but a photo op.  Bibi knows this; I am sure he doesn’t trust Obama at all.
    That said, I would like to be a “fly on the wall”.

    • CO2isGood

      Amjean 
      Yeah, Bibi is much too smart to trust any one let alone Obama. But he has to play the game, until the time is right for Israel to act.

    • OneThinDime

      Amjean”Bibi knows this; I am sure he doesn’t trust Obama at all.”  Wow, are you channeling Rand Paul?

  • libertifirst

    Yep.

  • TruthSociety

    Okay and has anybody asked  America’s State Department and  Obama’s Administration  to apologize and compensate those that suffered or died in Benghazi and Fast and Furious?

    On Glenn Beck’s radio broadcast this morning, a guy from Israel called, and said he people in Israel appeared to be falling for Barack’s insane BS.

    • DeborahClemence

      K-Bob You forget that Israel is far more socialistic than America and their kibbutzim began as socialist communes, so Obama’s rhetoric can resonate – and they may not realize you cannot believe what he says but must watch what he does.  I am sure Bibi is not fooled.

  • http://jerusalem.com/files/articles/mainpic Cindy09

    This is terrible!!  I’ve heard a lot about the remaining 1260 days that the prophet Daniel spoke about that actually could start today.  Someone mentioned that 1260 days back, Obama received the Nobel Peace prize.    Dang!!   What if prophecy was taking place?  
    Whatever it is, we sure are living in the last days, before Christ’s return.

  • DeborahClemence

    Bibi has to pick his battles…. he needs American support, both politically and financial. Better to make a concession like this than agree to “right of return”, give East Jerusalem to the so-called Palestinians, or stop building much needed housing for Israel’s citizens!

    • bfunk

      DeborahClemence Agreed

  • http://www.navalwarfare.blogspot.com/ Libertyship46

    The Israelis should have fired a shot across the bows of the ships and then sunk them if they refused to stop. This is not a game that is played on the high seas. When you’re ordered to stop because of a blockade, you stop. If you refuse, you’re sunk. Simple, right? Evidently, not to Obama and his minions. This is shameful for making Netanyahu apologize for something the Israelis did not do, which was act illegally. In fact, the simple thing would have been to just sink the ships, thereby sparing any potential harm to the boarding Israeli troops. But in an effort to save lives, the Israelis tried to board the ships to stop them. Of course this fact does not matter to Obama, who basically thinks the Palestinians can do no wrong. The fool.

  • notsofastthere

    Blackmail is Obama’s trade and he seems to be getting everything he wants. We’re ticked off that BiBI caved in, but let’s look at ourselves first. Reparations for people who were never slaves from people who never owned slaves. Obamacare for everyone because illegals and gangbangers aren’t insured. Reparations for people who never were farmers or just claimed they were denied their loans without any verification. We call Obama an idiot, while he achieves his goals.
    ANYONE who trusts Obama is certifiably insane, and that goes for Boehner and the Republican’s. Evil personified

    Which translates to “Israel will use US foreign aid money to compensate victims”.  Another bloody bill we have to foot.
