Turkey has announced that it’s suspending military agreements with Israel and reducing diplomatic relations to “Second Secretary” level. I read the Palmer Report last night. As far as I know, it hasn’t been translated into Turkish. Judith, do you know if it’s been translated into Hebrew?
If it hasn’t been translated into either language, we can conclude that popular debate about it is taking place among journalists, academics, diplomats, Americans, and on Twitter. It takes even a very fluent reader of English who has followed this story closely since it began about two hours to read it carefully.
All of this could make one quite despairing. I plan to cheer myself up with a deeper reading into some of the interesting questions raised by the report about the history of international maritime law. Arid intellectualism is looking better and better to me.
