Turkey is working together with the Hamas terrorist organization to file joint lawsuits against the Israeli military officials who stopped a six-ship flotilla from reaching Gaza and violating Israel’s territorial waters.
According to a report published last week by the London-based a-Sharq al-Awsat Arabic-language newspaper, Turkish Justice Minister Sadullah Ergin said Ankara would continue to provide support to Gaza residents — and Hamas officials would support Turkey in filing lawsuits against Israel in the International Criminal Court at The Hague.
Briefs are allegedly being prepared on behalf of the Turkish terrorists aboard the Mavi Marmara flotilla ship, seeking financial compensation for families of the dead and injured, as well as a petition claiming violation of the charter on maritime operations in international waters.
Israeli Naval commandos were viciously attacked by armed Muslim terrorists posing as “peace activists” as they boarded the Mavi Marmara, one of the six ships in last month’s Turkish-sponsored flotilla that attempted to break Israel’s maritime blockade of Gaza. A bloody clash ensued, resulting in nine dead terror activists and terrorists and numerous others wounded – including seven Israeli commandos.
Meanwhile, American Jewish groups are calling on the State Department to designate a Turkish relief group as a terrorist organization. The Insani Yardim Vakfi (Humanitarian Relief Fund, or IHH), was a main organizer of the flotilla.
In a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the New York-based Anti-Defamation League (ADL) noted that the IHH has “well-documented ties to Hamas,” which rules the Gaza region.
