More evidence that this was a jihad attack against Israel, not an Israeli attack on innocent “humanitarians.” “Probe reveals flotilla lynchers have ties to Global Jihad,” by Ron Ben-Yishai for YNet News, June 1 (thanks to all who sent this in):
VIDEO – The ongoing interrogation of passengers who were aboard the Marmara – the Gaza aid flotilla’s flagship – revealed that the majority of those who attacked the Israeli Naval Commandos boarding the ship have direct and indirect Global Jihad ties.
Israel’s investigation has revealed some 100 people infiltrated the peace and humanitarian aid activists making their way to Gaza, with the explicit design to attack Israeli soldiers using cold arms.
Some among that group are believed to have ties with World Jihad groups, mainly al-Qaeda.
The majority of suspects are Turks, but some are Yemenites and Indonesian. One Yemenite Islamist was photographed with a dagger in his belt prior to the raid.
The suspects are not cooperating with investigators. Most of them have no identification papers, and Israeli authorities are still trying to ascertain their identity.
Nevertheless, it is clear that the majority were recruited by the same IHH handler who organized the flotilla.
IHH is a Turkish humanitarian relief fund with a radical Islamic anti-Western orientation.
