Netanyahu Apologizes to Turkey During Obama Visit

    Barack Obama, Shimon Peres, Benjamin Netanyahu

    President Obama’s Middle East trip continuing Friday with a trip to Jordan. The President calling the trip a success before leaving Israel over a phone call, which may sound a bit mundane but not when it’s between the leaders of Turkey and Israel, and not when it ends the way this one did.

    FOX News Radio White House Correspondent Mike Majchrowitz reports from Amman, Jordan:

    The relationship between Turkey and Israel used to be a warm one, an ally for the Israeli’s in an otherwise hostile backyard. 

    But the two leaders Prime Minister Netanyahu and his Turkish counterpart Erdogan haven’t spoken since 2010 when Israeli Marines killed Turkish activists after boarding a boat that was attempting to challenge Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza. Turkey has been demanding an apology from Israel for years and compensation for the victims’ families.
