TURKEY STANDS ACCUSED FOR SPONSORING THE VIOLENT “PEACE” ACTIVIST FLOTILLA
CALL FOR AN INTERNATIONAL INVESTIGATION OF TURKEY’S ROLE IN THE FLOTILLA’S DELIBERATE PROVOCATION
Turkey played a key role in promoting the flotilla of six ships that tried to breach Israel’s maritime blockade of Gaza on May 31st.
The flotilla, organized by self described human rights groups, claimed it was bringing aid to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Gaza. Israel offered to deliver the goods through official channels if the activists conformed to international and Israeli law, and agreed to dock at Ashdod instead of Gaza. They refused. When Israel warned the approaching ships to redirect to Ashdod, they refused to do so. Exercising its sovereign rights under international law, Israel boarded the ships and escorted them to Ashdod. Five ships complied peacefully and no one was injured.
The sixth ship, Mavi Marmara, flying under the Turkish flag, refused to cooperate. When a small group of Israeli navy personnel attempted to board the Marmara, the alleged “peace activists” ambushed them with guns, knives, steel pipes, bats, and other weapons. Seven Israelis were wounded, two critically, and nine activists were killed. Watch the video here:
Turkey permitted the Marmara to fly under its flag. Turkey knew that the IHH (Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation) had organized the Flotilla, and supports the genocidal terrorist organization Hamas, several Jihadist organizations in Bosina, Syria, Iraq, Libya, and elsewhere, and has ties with Al Qaeda. But Turkey did not prevent the Flotilla from disembarking and attacking Israel’s sovereign right to protect itself from terrorists attempting to enter or to smuggle weapons to Hamas in Gaza.
Now Turkey is condemning Israel for the unfortunate casualties, and is leading the charge to condemn Israel at the U.N. It is Turkey that should be condemned by the United Nations for its role in this deadly trap set for Israelis.
Turkey has blood on its hands, not Israel.
