After over a year of deep freeze in Israeli-Turkish ties, talks about a reconciliation agreement between the two nations have resumed with a secret meeting between Foreign Minister director general Dore Gold and his Turkish counterpart, Feridun Sinirlioglu.

A senior Israeli official said that Gold secretly left for Rome on Monday to meet Sinirlioglu, who is responsible for the “Israel portfolio” in the Turkish government, and led the Turkish negotiating team in resolving the crisis with Israel.

Gold, considered a close associate of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and recently appointed director general of the foreign ministry, did not makes his plans known to either National Security Advisor Yossi Cohen, nor the PMO’s special envoy to Turkey, Joseph Ciechanover, who has handled ties with Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government for five years, and kept lines of communication open with Sinirlioglu.

Cohen and Ciechanover, who compiled the draft agreement in Febuary 2014, learned about the meeting between Gold and the Turkish official after the fact. Gold’s predecessor, Nissim Ben-Sheetrit, was also a member of the negotiating team with Turkey. The senior Israeli official, who asked to remain nameless due to the sensitivity of the issue, noted that before Gold left for Rome, there was no official discussion on the status of negotiations with Turkey. Foreign Ministry spokesman Emanuel Nachshon refused to comment.

The meeting in Rome took place just weeks after the parliamentary elections in which Erdogan’s party failed to attain a majority that would allow it to continue altering the constitution. The election even forced Erdogan to form a governing coalition with a smaller party.

In March 2013, during U.S. President Barack Obama’s visit to Israel, Netanyahu apologized to Erdogan on the phone for the civilian deaths during the Israeli naval raid on the Mavi Marmara, part of a Turkish flotilla to Gaza in May 2010, which led to the deterioration of relations and the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador in September 2011.

Although the phone call led to negotiations between the two sides, they quickly stalled. In December 2013, after a few months without progress, there was a breakthrough, and an Israeli negotiating team traveled to talks in Istanbul. A few weeks later, the Turkish negotiating team came to Jerusalem. The breakthrough came as the two sides were willing to be flexible regarding the amount of reparations for the families of the civilians who were hurt or killed during the attack on the Marmara.

Israel agreed to increase reparations to $20 million, and Netanyahu even ordered the negotiating team to offer another $2-3 million in order to put the issue to rest. The reparations were not paid directly to the families, but were transferred to a humanitarian foundation that will dispense the money to the families based on various criteria.

In February 2014, a draft of an agreement between the two states was written. Aside from the amount of reparations, the two countries agreed that the Turkish parliament would pass a law cancelling the lawsuits filed against Israel Defense Forces officers and soldiers that participated in the Marmara raid. Also, a framework for normalizing the relations was compiled. The Israeli team recommended that Netanyahu accept the deal, although he delayed his decision, despite his previous order to put the issue to rest.

A few weeks later, Obama pressed Erdogan to accept the deal, and end the rift with Israel. The senior Israeli officer said then that the draft agreement had been readied, but Netanyahu had yet to sign, prolonging the conflict. “The ball is in Netanyahu’s court,” said Erdogan to Obama then.

    As the money going to an humanitarian foundation I pray the families get the money. And the president of the company doesn’t take it or others divide it amongst themselves. I say that because of a job I had before up in higher ranks in this major organization that is what happened. Anyways thanks for the article all of the secretive meetings. 2 make a deal pay the judge and he seals the deal. May Jesus Christ come soon and take over all the politics whose name is Wonderful, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and the Prince of Peace. Can’t say that for anyone else in office. Unless your peace is Islam……

  • ChiRho

    Man, Israel must be hard up for friends to pay off the families of a bunch of foreign nuts who disregarded their laws and attacked their defense forces, all in an attempt to slander them internationally and aid their enemies with military supplies. If only there was a much larger and more powerful country who was founded on principles first recognized in Ancient Israel, yet still practical today, who could back Israel up and stand for what is right with her in times of trouble. If only . . .

    • andrea

      Maybe some of us could come up with some secret deal to change this. Lol then we who would want to do good would be thrown in jail. That’s how it works huh?

      • ChiRho

        I’m sure there are people who would love to throw us all in jail. Remember one of the Kennedys (no doubt trying to make a name for himself in the Progressive circles) said just last year that Climate Change Deniers should be arrested and locked up.

        • andrea

          I think this is what they mean. The climate change is coming alright when we use our nukes!

          • knight

            Already arrived as we are at the beginning.

            Was just reminded of another prophecy. Dynamo – Magician Impossible
            No matter what one thinks, for a magician trying to re-create the miracles of Jesus Christ, also tears strips of Christianity. Like when he walked on water, that people said large sheets of unbreakable glass or similar was laid out

            atthew 24:24 King James Version (KJV)

            24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

            Project Sputnik Russia made. Project blue beam not exactly sure if same thing they may try to bring in their messiah. Have you heard about that? I wish they would also quit trying to disapprove what Jesus did.

          • knight

            We know what Christ did for us, so stick to your belief as you know what is written in the Bible will happen. Let’s hope sooner than later as I hate seeing people suffer.

          • ChiRho

            That would cause severe warming in certain places. I think we wouldn’t use them unless hit from a nuclear attack first, and honestly with our current leadership possibly not even then.

          • andrea

            Haarp could cause the change also. Man made stuff a lot their from those who have sold their soul and work with the devil to rob, kill, steal and destroy.

        • knight

          Bit more than that, behead us.

          • ChiRho

            There are those people, too.

          • andrea

            Sad but true. I pray Jesus comes soon.

          • knight

            I think all may happen in our life time.

        “Maybe some of us could come up with some secret deal to change this.”

        I hope not! It’s PROBABLY going to lead to the 7 year peace treaty of the AC… which FINALLY brings Yeshua/Jesus BACK! I for one am READY because I’m TIRED of this world!

        • andrea

          Me also I was being sarcastic because I am sick of the world myself.

          • Willing to die for Jesus

            lol.

        • andrea

          I like you have loved ones I want to see and my animals.

  • Jeff Benton

    I wonder if this is setting the stage for future negotiations on another peace deal that has been written about before?

    • andrea

      I know thee peace treaty Walid spoke of will be in Egypt I believe. But it’s always little steps that lead to the big one.

      • Jeff Benton

        Well, actually I cant say the one I was talking about is a “Peace deal” as I wrote… I was referring to the passage in Thessalonians… let me grab it real quick…
        1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
        So it does not actually say it is a peace deal or treaty of any kind, so my bad there for being a bit misleading…
        Since it lays it out like it does, I am sure it will probably be a common clamor of “Peace and Safety” from peeps who have access to get the word out to the masses…

        Not sure about the peace treaty in Egypt you say Walid was pointing out… have ya got a link saved so I can read up??? If not, it’s no big deal… was just curious…

        • andrea

          I see where you are coming from I believe. The peace treaty I thought you were referring to has to do with the antichrist. I thought I knew how to cut and paste on this iPad but anyways on google I typed Walid Shoebat peace treaty Egypt.

          • Jeff Benton

            Thanks

          • andrea

            Wow I am glad you brought that up. I looked at the verse you mentioned. My bible in the English (lol not Aramaic or Hebrew) said peace and safety were slogans of the Romans. Glad you said something you got me wondering now.

          • Jeff Benton

            You mean it said that in the footnotes or something??? One thing I learned real quick early on was to never read the footnotes or any type of editorial content left by “scholars” in different Bibles suggesting what a verse may mean LOL…
            I’ve seen them say the exact opposite things about the same verse in two different Bible versions heh heh heh…
            If I use them, it is usually for reference to look something up from different sources…

          • andrea

            Yes it was in the footnotes but that was not the first time I heard it. Just like the verse you mentioned I misunderstood the first go around had to refresh my memory. But then 2000 others will argue the statement I made. Lol. but I believe in the vs before that others don’t. I sure am not going to get in that on the site. I still don’t see like Jesus told the Pharisees after he healed the blind man and Jesus conversed with them and they said we see. Jesus said if you say you see your sin still remains. Lol. I’d have to look up the verses of the story but I loved Jesus wit. Anyways Jeff I see what you are saying now. Even Jesus told the teachers and such back in the day they withheld knowledge from the people. So it is just me reading it and God can change my mind if he needs.

          • Jeff Benton

            🙂 🙂 🙂

          • andrea

            John 9:14- sorry misunderstanding. I believe like back in the day Jesus mentioned knowledge was being held from the people. Luke 11:52 woe unto lawyers, for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered. But the whole chapter of John 9 I was referring to.

          • Jeff Benton

            Found this… So even with Obama’s Egyptian MB buddy gone, we are still supporting them somewhat…

          • andrea

            Wow. Jeff there is a much bigger picture we read the bible and we forget it is between satan and God. And both use people. Some don’t read the book of Enoch even though it was referred to in the bible and the fallen angels have been pushing mankind. One of those fallen angels taught about weapons of war.

          • andrea

            These people in charge are globalists luciferians. People don’t want to believe it. This is why America and other nations are promoting occultic religions all of a sudden. It goes right back to the Tower of Babel and to the fallen angels. We somehow think satan gave up on his plans he has not it is going to get worse before they get better. Of course we know God wins but it is really going to get bad in the last 3.5 years of tribulation when Satan is kicked out for good. Since we know in Job he still can go up there. We humans have been here a short time satan has been here since God created him. So yes these people are puppets. I believe some want to do right I don’t know but they are following the protocols of the learned elders of Zion.

        • andrea

          Jeff the verses I meant were in thes chap 4 :13 continuing to 5 of verses you quoted. It would just start a big rift on this site.

      • susan

        There’s man sized steps and then there’s God sized steps. Time will tell which is which.

    • andrea

      If I messed up your thinking you wouldn’t be there first sorry if you want me to clarify that please let me know. Book of Jasher goes more into story of Nimrod and beginning of time it sis mentioned in the bible. Cleared me up on some things.

      • Jeff Benton

        It’s all good… Dont worry so much about what I or anyone else may think 🙂 🙂 🙂 Ive just been chatting and enjoying it… It’s been a great day, probably because I started out with God and prayer and a little quiet time with the Bible…
        You have done or said nothing wrong or worrisome or that needs clarifying that I can see…
        Sorry if I gave ya that impression…
        Just been reading and writing and enjoying it all 🙂 🙂
        No worries mate!!!!

    • Willing to die for Jesus

      Andrea I love how you are into all this stuff and understand it, it’s refreshing an American like you doesn’t just swallow whatever you’re told by the authorities. And how you get contacts on the ground. You think like an investigative reporter or detective!! Most Americans wouldn’t have a clue about half the things you know. God bless you.

  • andrea

    I never said who wrote it.

  • andrea

    You wish it was fake.

  • andrea

    It is already completed so don’t worry about it.

  • 1 Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

  • Catbr

    This deal is very odd. Something is definitely off about it. This can’t be good news for Christians. I’m hoping and pretty sure Walid is keeping a close eye on this and will enlighten us in the weeks ahead.
