The New York Times–you know, it’s sort of like National Public Radio but with printed letters on murdered trees–keeps saying it can’t find any connections between IHH, the Turkish Islamist group that organized the Gaza flotilla, and terrorism. From time to time, I’ve published helpful hints to assist them in making these linkages. But, alas, they don’t quite seem to get the picture.
Picture! Hey, that’s an idea!
The goal might be to give the IHH a better feel for what it needs to include in future “humanitarian” deliveries to the Gaza Strip. Indeed, if the IHH and its many allies succeed in getting rid of the sanctions on Gaza altogether, they could bring these things in directly on “peace activist” ships.
Note the snappy black tee-shirt worn by the IHH activist, a map including all of Israel transformed into the Islamic Republic of Palestine.
For more information on the IHH’s Viva Palestina convoy and its fun time frolicking with terrorist buddies, see here. And for more evidence of IHH’s past terrorist connections, see here, here, here, here, and here, and also here … Well, you get the picture, so why doesn’t the Times and so many others?
