Orchestrating victimhood

Ralph Peters once again tells it like it is.
Turkish (blood)bath -Ankara ambushes Israel at sea

Yesterday’s “aid convoy” incident off the coast of Gaza wasn’t about bringing humanitarian supplies to the terrorist-ruled territory. It wasn’t even about Israel.

It was about Turkey’s determination to position itself as the leading Muslim state in the Middle East.

[...]

The first wave of Israeli commandos reportedly were armed only with paintball rounds for crowd control. Inspect those videos of maddened peaceniks assaulting the soldiers as they landed on deck. You don’t see any Israelis pointing rifles — they’re fending off blows.

But the claims of pro-terrorist “peace advocates” are given instant credence.

[...]

Now, as we wait to see if Hamas and Hezbollah up the ante, the world ignores Turkey’s decisive role in this fiasco.

The US and the European Union cling to the fiction that Turkey’s a “westernized Muslim democracy.” But Turkey’s moving to the east as fast as the Islamist leaders of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) can drag it there.

Turkish leaders visit the West and sing, “Democracy, democracy, democracy!” We coo and clap. Then they go east and cry, “Islam, Islam, Islam!” And we insist they don’t mean it.

Read it all. (thanks to Rodan for the link)

There is also some great information at Yid with Lid today on IHH, the supposed Humanitarian Relief Foundation (The Foundation for Human Rights and Freedom and Humanitarian Relief), who dreamed up this adventure.

The IHH, the Turkish group that organized this operation and had a large presence on the ship where the soldiers were attacked also has had ties with al-Qaida and has been designated as a global terrorst group by the U.S. government. Indeed, in the past this group was found to be involved in dispatching terrorists to a number of countries, including involvement in a terror attack in the United States (the would-be Millennium Bomber in Los Angeles).

There is also emerging evidence that interrogation of those captured on the ship shows that 40 to 60 men were organized in military-style units. They have no identification, but lots of money, and some were equipped with night vision equipment and bullet-proof vests.

So who is this “IHH” group who is responsible for yesterday’s violence?

Read the whole thing- it’s slam full of links: IHH, The Terror Group That Sponsored the Guerrilla Flotilla to Gaza

    They need to be held account for genocides past and present. And they should not be a Nato member. There is no room in our ranks for enemies.

    @ m:

    The Turks are turning away from the West and want to gain influence in the East. The easiest and fastest way to do that is to kick Israeli. I say that we have no place for this country in Nato.


  20. 20 | June 1, 2010 9:50 pm

    @ gulfloafer:

    I hope so as well. There have been a lot of arrests in the military in the past two years for just this. Unfortunately, the rules that they adopted to enter the EU make it much more difficult for the military to step in. I’m dying to see it happen. A lot of the military is quite close with Israel.


  21. 21 | June 1, 2010 9:51 pm

    It is Iran with a foot in the door in the Western world. They need to learn that such actions have negative consequences.

    I hope you are right. I don’t relish more enemies. I just don’t understand blindness to what is going on.

    OTOH, I know that the military in the past has been a counter-balance to islamist tendencies, will that hold true going forward?

    @ gulfloafer:

    My special powers are extremely limited, but tin foil hats have limited use. My special skills enable me to bring hordes of zionist boars down on Palestinian fields and I also work in the special Elders of Zion division responsible for the infamous lust candy.


  24. 24 | June 1, 2010 9:57 pm

    @ citizen_q:

    It will more difficult now due to EU mandated reforms. The military is still seen as the guardian of Ataturk’s legacy and is highly revered in the country. They obviously have to wait now because they don’t want to be seen as Zionist tools. There were quite a few generals arrested a few months ago who were plotting a military takeover.

    Who in their right mind would want to jump on that sinking ship (EU)? Maybe now is the time. Their gov says “hey let’s have the Navy escort the flotilla” and their response is “hey how about a coupe de tat?”

    @ Rodan:

    They do but this time they’ve gone to far. I was discussing this with a Kurdish friend today. He thinks they’ve stepped in it big time and it will be hard to back down due to macho tendencies in the country. Sending a naval escort with the next ships will obviously result in losses that will be as destructive for them as they were for the Arabs. My question is this; what in the hell are those 20,000 Jews doing still living in Turkey. They need to come home.

    @ gulfloafer:

    The best thing about Turkish coups is that they aren’t considered that there; they consider it a return to Ataturk’s founding principles. My guess is that they are not very comfortable with the current regime’s cosying up to Iran.


  31. 31 | June 1, 2010 10:04 pm

    The EU is a sinking ship though. The only people wanting in now are the Icelanders and it is because they’ve already sunk.

  36. 36 | June 1, 2010 10:15 pm

    @ Rodan:

    It’s high time they got their arses handed to them again. It is easy to massacre defenseless Armenians; the Israelis won’t go down so easily. It is amazing what wins respect in the Moslem world though. Close to 100 peaceful Ahmadi Moslems murdered in Lahore barely registers a blip on the international radar. Turks attack the Israeli military and are call it a massacre when they get the wind up a few guys short. If Obama were worth anything, he would realize this is the chance to begin to save his presidency. Of course he won’t do it; anyone listening to Rev. Wright for two decades obviously has very little mental faculties.


  37. 37 | June 1, 2010 10:16 pm

    @ Rodan:

    Agreed. That would be the best case scenario at the moment. The sponsors of the flotilla were originally banned for Islamist links.


  38. 38 | June 1, 2010 10:18 pm

    @ We Are Government:

    Good point! Where was the outcry about the killing of those in Lahore?


  39. 39 | June 1, 2010 10:19 pm

    They were connected to Muslims Brotherhood and AL-Qaeda.

    The price of gold is manipulated. Long story. When everyone wants it, there will be NONE to be had. The price goes up and down, but when it “disappears” it will be priceless. (Hope that’s not too cryptic. Trying to keep it short.)


  41. 41 | June 1, 2010 10:25 pm

    @ Rodan:

    There was no outcry. For my wonderfully secular Kurdish friend, it is embarrassing to see riots and protests in the West of people who sought shehada while the gassing of the Kurds that killed 20,000+ at Halabja by Saddam is completely unheard of. Lahore, where scores of “infidel” Moslems were murdered in a Mosque during Friday prayers barely raises one voice of protest in the West.


  42. 42 | June 1, 2010 10:27 pm

    @ Rodan:

    If Al-Qaeda sponsored a flotilla to invade European territorial waters it would be torpedoed with barely a whimper of protest except from the Chomskyite dhimmis.

    They won’t be doing anything about it. Erdogan has been busy purging the military of all its secularist officers and the judiciary of all its secularist judges. He should control enough of parliament on the next election to push through Sharia, convict the officers of crimes against Allah with the help of accomodationist judges, and complete the Islamic takeover of Turkey.
