Well, we now know why Obama traveled to the M.E. region, it was to force Netanyahu into apologizing to Turkey for the Mavi Marmara incident, and incident by the way, that was either concocted, or at least tacitly supported by the Islamic fundamentalist regime of Turkey.
NOTE: Israel has to have received some other assurances (which remain unspoken) that caused an abrupt turnaround in policy vis-a-vis the Turks. I can only assume that it outweighed any concern of losing face.
OBAMA FORCES NETANYAHU TO APOLOGIZE TO TURKEY FOR FLOTILLA INCIDENT
Breitbart.com: In the aftermath of President Obama’s goodwill speechifying in Israel, Obama reverted to anti-Israel form behind closed doors. Obama reportedly leveraged Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu into calling Islamist Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan to apologize for Israeli action against a Turkish-sponsored terror flotilla directed toward helping Hamas in the Gaza Strip. The Turkish-sponsored flotilla, led by the ship Mavi Marmara, was boarded by Israeli troops on May 31, 2010 in international waters after it became clear that the ship, along with five others, was going to send illegal supplies to Hamas.
