What’s the Turks score card, let me see:
Kurds plus Human rights = no
Palestinians plus human rights = yes (As long as they don’t live in Turkey)
Armenian plus human rights = Well a 100 years have passed, maybe we might think about saying sorry for that thing we really didn’t do.

There is a lot I like about the Turkish people, but you can’t fight a nasty war against the Kurds and suppress them and then help create international incidents so you can criticize Israel for far less.
