6’ncı filo 40 gemi, 175 savaş uçağı ve 21 bin personelden oluşuyor. Filoda, 2 uçak gemisinin yanısıra denizaltılardan çıkarma gemilerine kadar çok sayıda destek gemisi de bulunuyor. Ayrıca Kızıldeniz’de konuşlu helikopter gemisi USS Kearsarge de destek için Akdeniz’e geçti, USS Ponce helikopter gemisi ise Akdenizde.
Olası bir ” Türkiye – İsrail Çatışmasını engellemek adına 6. Filo Harekete geçebilir.” bu cümleler son zamanlarda sıkça dile getirilmediyse de arka kulislerde konuşulan bir konu olduğu fısıltı gazetesinde yer almaktadır.
Değerli takipçilerimiz kabul edilmesi gereken bir olguya karşı direnmek , yıpranmayı arkasından yokolmayı getirir.
Geçmiş zaman içerisinde Türk Dış Politikasının alışık olmadığımız hamleleri ile karşılaşmış ve “çözüm adı altında teslimiyet ” kelimesini kullanarak eleştirilerde bulunmuştuk.
Fakat buğün gelinen noktada görülüyor ki sığ iç politikaların dışında Türkiye’ nin Doğu Akdeniz Politikası tamami ile faydacı bir şekilde ilerlemektedir. Bunu gören İsrail gerek Akdeniz’de bir güç olma isteminin gereği gerekse de bir güç devleti olması politikalarının sonucu olarak Türkiye’nin yapmış olduğu hamleleri analiz edememiş, küçümsemiş, havada kalacak cümleler olarak görmüştür.
İsrail sokakları , düşünce kuruluşlarının analistleri ve en son olarak Muhalefet lideri Tzipi Livni İsrail Hükümetinin uyguladığı politikaların İsrail’ i stratejik yalnızlığa sürüklediğini belirten bir demeç vermiştir.
İsrail sokakları daha fazla özgürlük , barış için sloganlarla inlerken İsrail Hükümeti acaba hangi İsrail Halkına hizmet ediyor ? koskoca bir soru işareti olarak karşımıza çıkan bu sorunun cevabı aslında, küresel güclerin kendi arasındaki çekişmeye ortadogu halklarını kurban etmeleri , olarak verilebilir.
Threat by Turkish Premier Raises Tensions With Israel
JERUSALEM — Israel was wrestling on Friday with growing tensions with Turkey after the Turkish prime minister threatened to use his navy to accompany aid flotillas to Gaza and to challenge Israel’s plans for gas exploration and export in the Eastern Mediterranean.
The prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, told Al Jazeera, the pan-Arab network, that he would use his warships to prevent Israeli commandos from again boarding a Gaza-bound ship as they did last year, killing nine passengers, and from letting Israel exploit natural gas resources at sea.
A United Nations report issued a week ago criticized the commandos’ actions but said Israel’s blockade was legal, which was not what Turkey had hoped to hear. It demanded an apology from Israel — which refused, as it has from the earliest days of the flotilla raid, when it expressed regrets — and then took steps to express its displeasure, including expelling the Israeli ambassador and cutting military ties.
Dan Meridor, Israel’s intelligence minister, responded on Friday to Mr. Erdogan’s recent threats, saying they were “grave and serious.” He told Army Radio, however, that he did not want to get into verbal saber rattling.
In Washington, the State Department urged leaders of both countries to avoid a war of words. “We would like to see both sides cool it and get back to a place where they can have a productive relationship,” the spokeswoman, Victoria Nuland, told reporters. Activists with the Free Gaza Movement, who have organized a series of flotillas to challenge Israel’s blockade of the Palestinian coastal strip, said they had no announcement about any efforts to come but that the most recent, which was stopped by Greece and Cyprus in June, would not be the last.
But Israeli diplomats and experts here and abroad said that while they were not overly concerned about a flotilla to Gaza materializing soon, the naval threat regarding the gas fields could prove more dangerous.
“Israel and Cyprus reached agreement dividing the water between the two of them for gas drilling,” Alon Liel, a former ambassador to Turkey said. “Turkey said the division was illegal. Israel is also clashing with Lebanon on demarcation and drilling rights. Turkey will also support Lebanon and things could escalate.”
Mr. Liel said that Israel hoped to export its gas via Cyprus in a few years, and that would require the digging of a large port there — something that he imagined that Turkey would try to prevent. That could mean possible clashes between Israel and Turkey like those Turkey has had with Greece over drilling and demarcation.
Israel’s foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, has ordered studies on how to defend Israelis from being prosecuted by the Turks over the flotilla attack last year — including urging Israelis associated with the military to avoid flying there — and get back at Turkey for its growing anti-Israel stand. Officials who spoke of the studies said they were still in the realm of brainstorming and were far from being accepted as policy. They included getting closer to Armenia, Turkey’s historic rival, and the minority Kurds in eastern Turkey, who along with Kurds in neighboring countries hope for an independent state.
Some analysts said Turkey’s rejection of the United Nations report showed hypocrisy. Before the commission issued its account, Turkey’s foreign minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, asserted on Turkish television that the report would “reaffirm the supremacy of international law.” After it was issued, Turkish officials declared the report null and void.
Mr. Erdogan’s comments come before a planned trip to Egypt and a meeting with President Obama the week after. Henri Barkey, a professor of international relations at Lehigh University, said Mr. Erdogan was trying to force the United States into the uncomfortable position of choosing between its ally Israel and Turkey, a NATO-member nation.
Turkey announced last week that it would host a NATO missile defense shield to protect against a potential strike from Iran. If tensions between Israel and Turkey increase, that could put NATO in a delicate spot.
“This is very high-stakes poker,” Professor Barkey said. “It’s very, very dangerous.”
Sinan Ulgen, director of EDAM, a center for economics and foreign policy studies in Istanbul, said he, too, was worried. “The latest threat is not only diplomatically difficult, but may even require direct U.S. involvement if Israel and Turkey come to face each other in the Eastern Mediterranean,” he said. “And the only one capable of coming between them is the United States, and the U.S. Sixth Fleet.”
