双方均试图找到方法摆脱目前的形势,一方面,他们可以保留自己的颜面,另一方面仍然表现出在该事件中选民是最重要的。当然,夺取几天,我们看到土耳其外交部长和以色列部长之间进行了一系列秘密会晤,这当然被视为是非常有趣,非常重要的第一步。

我们不想与土耳其政府进行公开的大喊大叫的比赛。相对来说,我们的总理表示,周末期间,我们希望事情能够平息下来,我们希望气氛缓和下来。我们不希望看到这场口舌之争继续升级。所以,我们认为,最好的是以色列和土耳其能够平静地进行讨论,使双方关系继续发展。

他说,周末期间进行了一些测试。那里的海平面非常高,周六的水位是七英尺,昨天至少五英尺,这是非常难以测量的。我的意思是,这艘船非常大。Tony,周六我从空中看到了它,大约在500英尺的高空。这艘船大约有3.5个足球场那么长,是建造成油轮的形式,经过了改造。它不像普通的除油船那样工作。它吸入所有的油和水,然后在甲板上将油和水分离,然后将水排掉。现在,测试主要包括它除油的性能,同时还要检测机动性。

是的,他说,当我作为观众前去祝贺我的前队友,和他们一起吃饭时,我到那里的时候,每个人都开始向我唱歌。“让我吃饭,让我吃饭”。他说。在最激烈的时候,我跳上舞台,希望或许由于大家都喝采,赠予者们能让他吃饭,证明他是champ。但是后来他被捕了。

Both sides appear to be trying to find a way out of this, a way where they can save face on the one hand, but also still appear to be top of issues for the constituents on the other hand. And certainly what we've seen in the past couple of days is a secret meeting between Turkey's Foreign Minister as well as the Israeli Minister that's certainly seen as something that could be an interesting and important first step.

We don't want to get into a public shouting match with the government of Turkey. On the contrary, my prime minister said over the weekend, we want to see things went down, we want to things relax, we don't want to see an escalation of this war of words. And so we think it's better, that Israel and Turkey conduct their discussions quietly and let's move forward.

There was some testing done, as he said, over the weekend. The thing is, the seas out there were so high, seven-foot seas on Saturday, at least five feet yesterday, that was a little tough to test this baby. I mean, it is massive. Tony, I saw it from the air on Saturday. You're flying over, we were 500 feet up. That thing is more than three-and-a-half football fields long.  The thing is built to be an oil tanker. It was retrofitted. It doesn't work the way normal skimmers work. It sucks up all the oil and water, and then it's supposed to separate them on board and then spit out the water.  Now, so, the testing involves checking out how well it actually can do the skimming, and also testing the maneuverability.

Yes, uh, he said, when I was, I went there as a spectator just to cheer on my ex buddies who I had been eating with. And actually when I was there, everyone started chanting for me, "let him eat, let him eat." And he said, and in the heat of it, I jumped on the stage hoping that maybe because of the cheers, the Nathans would actually let him eat and prove that he was the champ. But then he got arrested.
