Terrorist is a soldier who had shot 18 years old guy from head 4 times even he had been wounded. Everybody knows what Israel try to do and its strategy in the middle east so they are just trying to legitimize its raid by telling the same statements in your message.
We have agreements on military weapons but I do not know what happens from this moment. Three common military operations cancelled.
100 of those passengers were members of various Muslim brotherhood chapters. At least 20 them had taped themselves on videos by al qaeda as martys before they left. So you tell me was that a peace mission??
Selman, just so you know the chief financial backer of this operation was the Radical Islamic Turkish charity called Insani Yardin Vakfi (IHH). One of its leaders Huwaida Arraf made the flotillas purpose plain and simple on June 19th 2009 press conference. "Its crucial that we continue sending boats to Gaza to challenge Israels closure of the strip" Arraf has long been on record as a supporter of terrorism. In 2002 she urged palestinians to incorporate violence into their strategy. The IHH is even less peaceful. The IHH wanted to bomb Los Angeles airport in 2003. The IHH is banned from Israel because of its ties with the radical islamic group called "Band of Good" Led by Yousef Al Qardawi. And by the way Turkey has arrested many IHH members in the 90's for smuggling weapons to terrorist groups. Today IHH works closely with Hamas.
Selman, maybe war games have been halted between israel and turkey however their weapons research is still on going and they are still delivering weapons to one another. The war games issue was political to calm their own people
