Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin, referring to the diplomatic crisis with Turkey, said Tuesday that Turkey's demand for an apology over the Mavi Marmara raid is misplaced.

"They want us to admit that the blockade on Gaza is immoral and illegal under international law. Of course this claim is not legitimate, as was also reinforced by the conclusions of the Palmer report," Rivlin said during a visit to a school in Issawiya to mark the opening of the school year in the Arab sector.
