Turkish writer Ismet Ozel wrote on article on Israel's recent apology
to Turkey over the raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that killed
eight Turks and a Turkish- American in 2010, Ermenihaber.am news
website reported. Ozel believes that Israel's apology can prepare
grounds for Turkey to apologize to Armenia.

Israel's apology was part of a CIA operation and the plan for 2015,
Ozel says. Israel would never apologize to an authoritative country.

With this move, it paves the way for Turkey to apologize to Armenia
in 2015.

"The U.S. reminds Israel of the formula "give one, take five." It
will be in the interests of both Tel Aviv and Athens if Turkey pays
compensation to Armenia. One should just be an AKP member [Turkey's
ruling Justice and Development Party] to fail to understand it,"
Ozel says.
