1. What a surprise!
Steve ,   USA   (06.15.12)
Does anyone outside of Turkestan know about this? I would think they are trying to keep this 'hush hush'. (yelling) THE IHH IS A TERRORIST ORGANIZATION !! HELLO? Peace activists singing kumbaya in the background...
2. Well, if that is the case
Isac   (06.15.12)
than Turkey who was complicit with the IHH and declared so before openly to the entire world, has to apologize to Israel and its brave military and of course pay a hefty compensation to the active members of the special operation units who participated in the Marmara ship operation. Thank you in advance for you "Mea culpa" and your generous donations. Have a nice day!
3. Surprise, surprise!
Mara ,   Vienna   (06.15.12)
We knew already that the Erdogan supported IHH vessel was full of terrorists pretending to be members of a "HRO". But that is what Erdogan loves, to support terrorists against Israel. He call tehm "freedom fighters", while he calls the PKK terrorists, though they demand the very same things as the Pals do!
4. actually no surprise at all
Ilana Bar-Hai   (06.15.12)
surprise is that the truth came out. Eventually it usually does.
5. And this surprises anyone?!
Jake Stone ,   USA   (06.15.12)
Stating the obvious is, somewhat, futile and a waste of everyone's time!
6. cheese
bill ,   canada   (06.15.12)
amazing stories; next you will print the moon is made of cheese and many israelis will believe it
7. Next time just torpedo the boats.
Efraim ,   in Virginia   (06.15.12)
8. To #6
Green Baron ,   Bethesda, MD USA   (06.15.12)
Actually, it was long thought that the moon is made of green cheese. This hypothesis turned out to be wrong. The moon actually is made of Limburger. This is one reason why the moon affects climate change almost as much as human activity.
9. I hope you're not suggesting they're terrorists....
Me   (06.15.12)
Because that will really come as a shock. I don't know what's less surprising: the article, or the fact that this wouldn't be published in the worldwide media, and if it will, no one will care.
10. To The Deaf,Dumb And Blind
The cult of isslim Runs Under The Guise of Religion! And the those stated above, need not worry Their Is A remnant Of Ha Shem's people that WILL FLUSH OUT THE EVIL amongst us and Do What Needs to be DONE!!!! unplug your ears, Seek the TRUTH, and remove those Rose Colored Glasses!!!! Before it's Too Late For You!!! שבת שלום / ברוך הא שם
11. This is the SAME IHH that Israel prevented from reaching....
Jehudah Ben-Israel ,   Qatzrin, Israel   (06.15.12)
...Gaza on its "peace" mission, one that included native "progressive" Americans, Canadians and Europeans, along with Israeli-Arab leaders, including an Arab Member of Knesset, Hanin Zouabi. Thus, before accusing Israel in its legal role of protecting its sovereignty and the life of its citizens, such "progressive" elements must ask themselves: Who are the people with whom we collaborate.
12. And that little erdogan had IHH under his wings..
Beary White ,   Norway   (06.15.12)
... and protected the organization, which actually makes him ....a terrorist..
13. Old news Intel agencies know IHH works with AQ since Bosnia
tf ,   herzliya il   (06.15.12)
14. nooooooo,really?
israeli girl   (06.15.12)
I'm so surprised. NOT!!!! in Israel there is one word to describe what we think about this redicilous "marmara" - ppppppphhhhhhhhhhhhhhh :))))))))
15. Hmmm. I'm thinking. I'm thinking!!!
Gideon Reader   (06.15.12)
16. "IHH director ... is ... being investigated ..."
leo ,   usa   (06.15.12)
What? Is Erdogan looking for ways to apologize to Israel for provocation? Next thing we know he will declare that he was fooled by IHH and he will also declare that all 9 dead were terrorists-provocateurs who got what was coming to them. Hallelujah! Man has seen the light!
17. Absolutely correct!
anton orde   (06.15.12)
18. Dessert
Thessalonian ,   Canada   (06.15.12)
Humble pie on the menu for dessert tonight on Mr. Erdogan's and Mr. Davutoglu's dinner table! Shalom
19. Typical. They're like vampires.
Ypip ,   Canada   (06.15.12)
20. #6 bill
solomon ,   bklyn   (06.15.12)
Just because you don’t like something like this to be exposed doesn’t mean its not true. Sorry to disappoint you. As it happens, what no one believes are your posts. But you already know that.
21. Yeah, they must be lying
Those really were peace activists, I swear!
22. Interesting development ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (06.15.12)
Nothing we haven't known for a while, of course, but it is somewhat amusing to see that the Turkish government is doing something about it -- Erdogan's protestations that IHH is nothing more than a humanitarian organization to the contrary notwithstanding. I hope NATO is watching. It simply will not do to have a country whose head of state is in bed with terrorists as a member of NATO, now, will it? Turkey's days in NATO are numbered. Ties to Al Qaeda, ties to the Islamic Republic of Iran, ties to the genocidal government in Syria -- who needs that kind of collusion?
23. To: No. 6
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (06.15.12)
No, please do not confuse Israelis with the Iranians, millions of whom flocked to mountaintops to see the "Pepsi" logo lasered onto the moon's surface .... As a purely intellectual exercise, why don't you look at Turkish news reports and neutral news reporting services? All of them are carrying this story. Contemplate the likelihood that you are the gullible one.
24. Now we all know about the Marmara ship so called peace floti
Canadian ,   Ontario   (06.15.12)
25. Turkey act now and clean your house from terrorists.
Jozek ,   Poland   (06.15.12)
26. The plot thickens...
Yiannis ,   Nicosia - Cyprus   (06.15.12)
The fact that IHH is nothing more than a front for ultra-fanatic islamists with ties to terrorists is not news; what IS news is that TUrkey is pretending to be doing something about it. A sign that Turkey is hurting from Israel's strong stance and is looking for a way to mend birges without losing face, perhaps? What will Israel do? Will you buy it? Or will you realise (as we in Cyprus have done) that a turk has an olive branch in one hand and a dagger in the other?
27. Regardless, Israel should still apologize
Stephen in New York   (06.15.12)
for defending itself. Whatever Israel does in its defense is a war crime.
28. Erdogan supports Arch Terrorists!
Benny ,   Iran   (06.15.12)
Erdogan/Gul support arch-terrorists & Hamas. Now, these 2 wild men are supposed to be the gate-keepers of NATO? U must be joking!
29. There is no SWIFT already
Obsessive ,   Turkey   (06.15.12)
You have to listen phone calls which is not hard. Forget CIA even FBI has an office in Turkey for hunting small IRS tax evasions :) and secret business activities of Iranian companies in Turkey. El-Kaide is in Europe (vermin nest of freedom fighters and fugitives) not in TURKIYE. Europe feeds IHH, PKK, IBDAC... Europe is the backer, financier of illegal Marxist and Islamic groups in Turkey. Million(s) of Turks in Germany OR a few thousand gefährlich Salafisten in Deutschland bedrohen ??? OMG :)
30. dangerous developments
Pedro ,   Brazil   (06.15.12)
It means that some people living in USA that participate in this flotilla gave support to a Al Queada related organization.
