French Judge Says Turkish Charity Behind Gaza Flotilla Had Terror Ties
Fox ^ | June 02, 2010

Posted on 06/02/2010 6:51:52 PM PDT by nuconvert

The Turkish Islamic charity behind a flotilla of aid ships that was raided by Israeli forces on its way to Gaza had ties to terrorism networks, including a 1999 al-Qaida plot to bomb Los Angeles International Airport, France's former top anti-terrorism judge said Wednesday.

The Istanbul-based Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief, known by its Turkish acronym IHH, had "clear, long-standing ties to terrorism and Jihad," former investigating judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.

From the French?

Does this mean we can expect to hear a retraction from the UN?

When hell freezes over, I suppose.....

The whole stinking parastate of Turkey is a genocidal terror state—one that we have been supplying and propping up to the tune of billions for years.

Dittoes for Saudi Arabia.

“From the French?”

A lot of the French are getting tired of middle eastern trouble-makers burning their cars, as well as all sorts of other mischief. And they are not as polite about it as some of their neighbors (Belgians, Germans, British), they don’t seem to care as much if you call them racists and xenophobes.

I thought they were talking about Obama’s pals Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. They are two terrorist who also supported the terrorist flotilla.

Isn't that the point of this post?

The “media” has proven itself to be unreliable in providing factual reports.
Or more exactly, has proven itself to be reliably inaccurate.

QUEL SURPRISE! While Sarko throws former friend and ally Israel under the bus, this courageous French Judge dares to speak the truth.

The IHH is composed of Leftist peacemongers, and funded, directed and organized by Islamist terrorists, including Hamas and Al Quaida.

Sarko, like Merkel, is getting those weak knees everybody figured he’d get after a year or two of hounding by the Euro-socialist press. I guess it’s too much to expect a strong leader - - somebody who will laugh in the faces of the Euro-socialist scum mercilessly - - to emerge from a place like old Europe.

There are no Chris Christies over there, that’s for sure.

It wouldn’t surprise me if one of Obama’s pals was working as an advisor to the flotilla crew.
