THE SILENCE OF THE SHAMS - PART ONE: THE SHIP OF FOOLS
As Haaretz, the Jerusalem Post and some other reputable publications are reporting, the Turkish IHH leader Bulent Yilidirim is suspected of funding al-Qaida.
If you cast your minds back two years to the Gaza Flotilla Incident, claims that IHH members who travelled on the ill fated Mavi Marmara were the provocateurs who chanted anti Jewish slogans on the ship and whose aim was to provoke violence to embarrass the Israelis were scoffed at by many commentators including some fellow travellers on the flotilla. A few of them even gained fame and even won awards for journalism.
When the truth slowly came out and the sham was exposed, it was treated with silence and consigned to the blank pages.
One can only wonder now into what hole those who tried to paint the IHH terrorists as humanitarians have slunk themselves into?
