Some columnists who call for Turkey to enter into a war with Syria, after Syria's downing of a Turkish jet, claim that Turkey's prestige was deeply shaken when it failed to give the necessary response to Israel when Israel attacked the Mavi Marmara aid ship (in 2010, killing nine Turks).
I just wonder whether there has been any way in which the Mavi Marmara attack has increased Turkey's prestige. If we look for a country whose prestige was shaken by the Mavi Marmara attack, it is undoubtedly Israel. Due to the Mavi Marmara attack, Israel has been undergoing its most isolated times in the international arena since its establishment.
