In an article in the Thursday edition of Jerusalem Post titled, “Erdogan wants another apology, this time from Armenia,” author Herb Keinon quotes an Israeli diplomatic source as saying that Turkey’s recent demands for apologies is turning into a pattern.

Keinon’s piece stems from announcements made by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Baku on Wednesday, urging President Sarkisian to apologize for comments he made in response to a question regarding the return of Western Armenia—and Mt. Ararat—to Armenia.
“Israel can take solace that it is not the only country in the world from which Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is seeking an apology: On Wednesday he demanded one from Armenia as well,” writes Keinon, who cites Turkey’s threats against Israel if it fails to apologize for last year’s Mavi Marmara flotilla incident.
