The nation of Turkey and President Erdogan can only wait nervously for the Russian hammer to fall. Let me explain.
We reap what we sow. (Galatians 6:7) The nation of Turkey sowed foolish seed back in May of 2010. The MV Mavi Marmara boat flotilla was designed to break the “Israeli Blockade on Gaza”. Israeli commandos in stopping the flotilla were physically attacked by activists in the flotilla, resulting in the deaths of nine activists. Turkey was very angry with Israel for stopping the flotilla; even though, Turkey was the main culprit behind the disastrous event involving activists from 37 nations.
Turkey demanded an apology from Israel, compensation to the nine families who lost loved ones, and an end to the blockade. Israel apologized, offered compensation, but refused to end the blockade.
ONCE AGAIN, Turkey has played the part of a fool by shooting down a Russian military plane. Now Russia is the one who is demanding an apology and compensation from Turkey. You see, Almighty YaHVeH’s justice moves slowly but surely. Turkish President Erdogan, who thinks of himself more highly than he ought to think, is caught between a rock and a hard place. Russia,who does not play around with the likes of Turkey, has imposed sanctions against Turkey and promised, that there is more justice to come. Although Turkey’s President Erdogan has put on a tough exterior look, apparently he is a bit frightened by the future consequences of his country’s actions against Russia. The pressure and embarrassment that Erdogan fostered against Israel has come full circle and now he is in the same position. Erdogan can only wait nervously until the Russian hammer falls upon him from the foolishness of some future event.
Erdogan in his haughtiness has been strutting around like a “banty rooster” against Israel, but now he has stepped in it. The wise thing for Erdogan to do, is to humble himself and back away from harassing Israel, before something really bad happens to him or his country. The next time he acts so foolishly might be absent any remedy.
