Flotilla Choir Parody: We Con The World
Turkish "aid" to Gaza Parodied

A Partial Background
The State of Israel is an independent nation.
Gaza is an Arabic enclave on the borders of Israel and within what should by rights be considered Israeli territory.
Gaza is ruled by a gang of Islamic religious fanatics whose Founding Charter describes the Jewish people as evil plotters against the welfare of humanity.
From Gaza rocket missiles are frequently fired into Israel aiming at Israeli settlements and cities.
These rockets along with other weapons were brought to Gaza mainly by way of the sea.
[This in itself would normally be considered more than enough to justify any and all control Israel should choose to exercise over what is brought to Gaza by way of the sea.]
Not only this but indications are that deliberate attempts were made to aim these missiles at kindergartens, hospitals, and schools.
Casualties and much damages has resulted from these attacks and it is only due to what appear to be clear cut miracles that the results have not been much much worse.
In addition, an Israeli soldier, Gilaad Shalit, was abducted in June 2006 from Israeli territory and is being held for ransom by the officials in Gaza.
Consequently, Israel has placed the territory of Gaza under a partial blockade. In effect this blockade is surprisingly humane and allows foods, medicines. and most essentials to go through.

In the past several attempts have been made by left-wing activists to break the blockade and bring ships and their cargoes into Gaza in defiance of Israeli regulations.
Some of these activists are Jewish, most are Gentiles.
Their motivations are mixed. In some cases they may have a genuine concern for the humanitarian rights of others.
[ Even if such is the case, it may still be asked as to why "the humanitarian rights of others" are considered grounds for political activity when Israel is involved and is depicted as an offending party. "The humanitarian rights of others" under Islamic and other regimes seem to be ignored. ]
There also exists as a motivating factor an open hatred of Jews.
The activists come from all over the world but among the most prominent are individuals from Spain, Germany, Turkey, and (to our great shame) Ireland.
All of these nations have a long history of Jew-hatred behind them.
None of them, apart from Ireland to some degree,  are known to have ever been noted for their respect for others.
In fact Spain, Germany, and Turkey are to be counted amongst the most cruel nations ever known to history.
Nothing has changed.
In Turkey Kurds, Armenians, and others are still severely discriminated against and persecuted.

The Incident
It was planned that eight ships  would set out with the announced intention of bringing supplies to Gaza.
The flotilla was organized by the IHH which is,
# a Turkish humanitarian relief fund with a radical Islamic anti-Western orientation. Besides its legitimate philanthropic activities, it supports radical Islamic networks, including Hamas, and at least in the past, even global jihad elements. #

The IHH receives partial funding and open support from the Government of Turkey.

Out of the original eight ships, one turned back and another (from Ireland) is claimed to be still on its way??
Eventually, the flotilla consisted of three cargo ships and three passenger ships.
The casualties occurred on Mavi Marmara passenger ferry, one of three ships provided by the terrorist organization Insani Yardim Vakfi (IHH).

The Other ships were organised by the Free Gaza Movement, an international coalition of lowlife activist groups.
The  Flotilla's ca. 690 passengers were mainly Turkish, but also included nationals of the US, UK, Australia, Greece, Canada, Belgium, Ireland, the Swedish author Henning Mankell, 1976 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire of Northern Ireland, and Holocaust survivor Hedy Epstein, 85, two Australian journalists and three German MPs.

The real purpose was not to provide provisions but rather to provoke a confrontation with the Israeli authorities and arouse world opinion.

# The [Israeli] Navy made initial contact with the flotilla at 11 p.m. on Sunday [May 30]
ordering the ships to follow them to
Ashdod Port or otherwise be boarded.

# The actual boarding of the ships took place at 2 a.m. Monday [May 31] and was yet to
be completed by 8 a.m.

# Activists aboard the ships repeatedly said they would not respond with violence to the navy's interception of their flotilla prior to the boarding. #

All of the ships were occupied by Israeli authorities without untoward incident APART from the ship Mavi Marmara.
The passengers of Mavi Marmara were mainly Islamic Turks and open supporters of terrorism. They also included the German Left party parliamentarians Annette Groth and Inge Hoger, in addition to former Left party PM Norman Paech and three other Germans.

31 may 2010
# On the day before the Gaza flotilla confronted the Israeli navy, Al-Jazeera TV documented the pre-battle atmosphere created by men on board the
flotilla, chanting a well known Islamic battle cry invoking the killing and defeat of Jews in battle:
"[Remember] Khaibar, Khaibar, oh Jews! The army of Muhammad will return!"

# Khaibar is the name of the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad's army in 628. Many Jews were killed in that battle, which marked the end of Jewish presence in Arabia. There are Muslims who see that as a precursor for future wars against Jews. At gatherings and rallies of extremists, this chant is often heard as a threat to Jews to expect to be defeated and killed again by Muslims.

Israel personnel bordered Mavi Marmara and according to their accounts did not expect untoward opposition. The soldiers were lowered by helicopter onto the upper deck. They were met with violence, attacked with steel bars, an ax, and knives.
Two of the first to board were overpowered and their pistols taken. One Israeli was thrown off the deck. The Israelis were fired upon both from the two pistols that had been taken from them and from a rifle that the Turls had brought with them.

Here is the link to the article "Navy Commandos: 'They came for war",
there are two You Tube videos within the article taped by the IDF.
The videos show Israeli soldiers being lowered from helicopters and boarding the ships. It shows the Israelis being surrounded and attacked by iron bars and an Israeli soldier being thrown off the deck.

The Israeli soldiers were forced to defend themselves and about ten of the jihadist invaders were killed and several injured.
Some Israeli soldiers were seriously to moderately wounded but it seems may (God Willing) all recover.
The would be invaders from all of the ships were taken into detention in Israel. Those who needed medical attention received it.
Some have already been released and have left the country.

IHH Organizers of the Flotilla have Al Quada Connections and Saudi Finances
The Terror Finance Flotilla by Jonathan Schanzer
The Weekly Standard (online)
May 31, 2010
The Turkish IHH (Islan Haklary Ve Hurriyetleri Vakfi in Turkish) was founded in 1992, and reportedly popped up on the CIA's radar in 1996 for its radical Islamist leanings.

However, the organization is not a force for good. The Turkish nonprofit belongs to a Saudi-based umbrella organization known to finance terrorism called the Union of Good (
Ittilaf al-Kheir in Arabic). Notably, the Union is
chaired by Sheikh
Yusuf Qaradawi, who is known best for his religious ruling that encourages suicide attacks against Israeli civilians.

 In 2006, both the U.S. government and the United Nations designated the
IIRO branch offices in Indonesia and the Philippines for financing al Qaeda. French magistrate Jean-Louis Brougiere also testified that IHH had an "important role" in Ahmed Ressam's failed "millennium plot" to bomb the Los Angeles airport in late 1999.

The U.S. government, it should be noted, also views the Union of Good as a terrorist organization. On November 12, 2008, a press release from the U.S. Treasury announced the umbrella group's leaders as Specially Designated
Global Terrorists (
SDGT), stating that the group was "created by Hamas leadership to transfer funds to the terrorist organization."
...The Treasury, drawing from declassified documents, stated unequivocally that the Union of Good "compensated
Hamas terrorists by providing payments to the families of suicide bombers.

Then there's the leadership. Apart from the aforementioned
Qardawi, Union of Good's top officials include Hamas members, as well as Yemeni national Abd al-Majid al-Zindani, who was designated by the U.S. Treasury as a terrorist in 2004 for providing support to al Qaeda.

Breaking Footage from Mavi Marmara interception - stun grenade

IDF Spokesperson 02 June 2010 , 14:53 Elana Kieffer

Video shows what took place as IDF soldiers intercepted the Mavi Marmara ship and were attacked by its passengers

Video footage shows
Shayetet Naval Special Forces attempting to intercept the Mavi Marmara ship which is part of the Gaza flotilla. Passengers on board are seen throwing chains, metal pipes and a stun grenade at the soldiers while attacking them with water hoses. The passengers later use the same metal pipes to beat the soldiers who boarded the Marmara. The soldiers can be seen armed with paintball guns, to be used as a means of riot dispersal.

Five other ships arrived to the area with the flotilla, however
IDF interception took place with no incident. The passengers on board these other ships cooperated nonviolently with IDF soldiers and there were no injuries.

Attackers of the IDF soldiers found to be Al Qaeda mercenaries
IDF Spokesperson 02 June 2010 , 10:47 Jonatan Urich
In a special meeting of the Security Cabinet it was disclosed that a group of 40 people on board the Mavi Marmara with no identification papers belong to Al Qaeda. The terrorists were equipped with bullet proof vests,
night-vision goggles, and weapons.

On board the
Mavi Marmara ship that arrived as part of the flotilla to Gaza was a group of approximately 40 people with no identification papers, who are mercenaries belonging to the Al Qaeda terror organization. This was
disclosed by the Israeli Security Cabinet, which gathered on Tuesday evening (June 1) for a special meeting.

According to intelligence disclosed during that meeting, the terrorists wore bullet-proof vests, and carried with them night-vision goggles, weapons, and large sums of cash.  Each person in this group had the exact same amount of cash in his pockets.  While the civilian protestors were sent to the lower deck during the
Shayetet Naval Special Force's interception of the ship, the group divided into cells and remained on the upper deck in order to attack the soldiers.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: ..."We know from the experience of Operation Cast Lead, and beforehand, that weapons entering the Gaza Strip are used against our civilians. Within Gaza there is a terror state aided by Iran, and therefore we attempt to prevent the entering of weapons to Gaza by land, air and sea. On the
Francop ship alone we caught approximately 200 tons of weapons which were smuggled by Iran to Hezbollah" .

The Prime Minister emphasized that "Opening a
martime channel to Gaza will present a grave danger to the security of our civilians. Therefore we are upholding the policies of the maritime blockade, and check the ships. There is no possibility to establish these policies without checking the contents of the ships. It is true that there is international pressure on and criticism of this policy, but we must understand that it is necessary in order to ensure the security of Israel and her right to self defense."

Irish Left-Wingers Afraid to Talk to Brit-Am Representatives!
Yair Davidiy, Brit-Am Representative in Jerusalem, rang Gerry Casey [{0}87 9301 625] in Sligo at the above number.
We said we were ringing from Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, and he sounded interested.
We then asked if it was true that he was organizing demonstrations in Sligo, Ireland, against the State of Israel.
He said, Yes.
We then told him that he was bringing shame to the Irish People and disgracing all those of Irish descent.
He cut the conversation off and could no longer be contacted.
Of the 679 surviving activists, who were brought to the Israeli port of Ashdod, only 50 agreed to be voluntarily deported and more than 30 are being treated in hospital for their injuries, reports the BBC's Wyre Davies in Jerusalem.

At first almost 600 people, from several countries, were still being held in detention centers across Israel and being questioned by the authorities.
It seems that at present the number of those still unidentified may be as low as 60.

120 Arab Flotilla Attendants Sent to Jordan
About 120 of those arrested from the Flotilla, with nationality from one or other of the Arab States and who were found not to have participated in violence against IDF personnel were transferred to Jordan where they will be processed by Jordanian authoriites and presumably sent back tot heir countries of origin. Turkey sent two aeroplanes to Lod airport to retrieve Turkish nationals..

Those still in detention were doubtless treated with delicacy and consideration. Some of them may not be exactly responsible for their actions
and the others are not worth talking about though we all know what they really deserve.

The incident is not yet over.
So far it has resulted in international condemnations of Israel, demonstrations against Israel, and threats.

The Solution
In our opinion the nations from which this rabble emerged and especially Turkey should be required to apologize and compensate the State of Israel
for what has happened.

Any individual or nation anywhere on earth that dares to challenge the sovereignty of the State of Israel is denying the truth of the Bible
and deserves to be treated accordingly.
Enemies of Zionism who raise their hands against Jewish soldiers should know in advance beyond all question of doubt that they are putting their lives on the line.

All the Arabs in Israel and surrounding areas should be re-settled elsewhere. A region such as that of Brazil may well be considered appropriate.
The international Community should participate in the costs of transference and resettlement.
Rogue nations in the area such as Iran and perhaps also Turkey should be occupied and dismantled.

Part Two:
Gaza Update
Flotilla Supplies sub-standard and unwelcome.
The material that was brought: Relatively little, substandard, and is not being accepted!
Material Supplied by Flotilla equals ca. 20 truckloads.
Daily number of truckloads from Israel to Gaza is about 100.
Some of the material brought by the flotilla is sub-standard e.g. the medical supplies are out-dated and should have been destroyed.
Hamas in Gaza (as of today) refuses to accept the material brought by the flotilla.

All the Wanna-be barbarian Invaders Already Sent Home
All members of the flotilla that were brought to Israel have already been sent back to their home-countries.
This includes the Turkish thugs who attacked Israeli soldiers.
These thugs appear to have been hand-picked mercenaries. Each one was paid thousands of dollars ($10,000 each according to a commentator on Israeli TV) for participation. The cash was found in the pockets of each participant on the upper deck of the Maramara.
Film taken by the security cameras on board the Marmara has been released. It shows the Turkish thugs (all of whom appear well-built
for their task) arming themselves and preparing for battle.

Kurds to Send Flotilla Against Turkish Occupation
Reported:22:50 PM - Jun/02/10
The Free Kurdistan Movement, human rights group, says it is planning the first international flotilla and motor convoy to reach Turkish-occupied Kurdistan.
"We want to break the siege and raise international awareness about the prison-like closure of Kurdistan. We hope to pressure the international community to review its sanctions policy and end its support for the continued Turkish occupation," said the group in a statement to the press.

Dead Count May be 16!
Officially nine dead bodies have been counted. Four have been identified as Turks. One is a local politician and another a Turkish Tae Kwondo (Karate) Champion.
An unconfirmed report however says that there may be 16 dead.

Kurdistan - Turkey is A Serial Oppressor of Minorities
Background: Quotes
According to the CIA World Factbook, in 2008 approximately 20 percent of Turkey's population consists of ethnic and religious minorities. Turkey's Constitution provides a single nationality designation for all Turks and thus does not recognize ethnic groups as national, racial, or ethnic minorities. Therefore a true census has been historically unavailable.

The Kurds have been the minority group with the greatest impact on Turkish national politics. The size of the Kurdish population led to a perception as the only minority that could pose a threat to Turkish national unity. Indeed, there was an active Kurdish separatist movement in southeastern Turkey since 1984. In Turkey, the Kurdish national movement dates back to at least 1925, when
Ataturk ruthlessly suppressed a revolt against the new Turkish republic motivated by the regime's renunciation of Muslim religious practices....
Since the 1930s, Kurds have resisted government efforts to assimilate them forcibly, including an official ban on speaking or writing Kurdish. Since 1984 Kurdish resistance to
Turkification encompassed both a peaceful political struggle to obtain basic civil rights for Kurds within Turkey and a violent armed struggle to obtain a separate Kurdish state.

The government's main strategy for assimilating the Kurds had been language suppression. Yet, despite official attempts over several decades to spread Turkish among them, most Kurds have retained their native language.

Article 66 of the Turkish Constitution defines a "Turk" as "anyone who is bound to the Turkish state through the bond of citizenship"; therefore, the legal use of the term "Turkish" as a citizen of Turkey is different from the ethnic definition. However, the majority of the Turkish population are of Turkish ethnicity.

Other major ethnic groups (large portions of whom have been extensively
Turkicized since the Seljuk and Ottoman periods) include the Abkhazians, Adjarians, Albanians, Arabs, Assyrians, Bosniaks, Circassians, Hamshenis, Kurds, Laz, Pomaks, Roma, Zazas and the three officially recognized minorities (per the Treaty of Lausanne), i.e. the Armenians, Greeks and Jews. Signed on January 30, 1923, a bilateral accord of population exchange between Greece and Turkey took effect in the 1920s, with close to 1.5 million Greeks moving from Turkey and some 500,000 Turks coming from Greece.[111]

Minorities of West European origin include the Levantines (or Levanter, mostly of French, Genoese and Venetian descent) who have been present in the country (particularly in Istanbul[112] and zmir[113]) since the medieval period.

The Kurds, a distinct ethnic group concentrated mainly in the southeastern provinces of the country, are the largest non-Turkic ethnicity, estimated at about 18% of the population according to the CIA.[5] Minorities other than the three officially recognized ones do not have any special group privileges, while the term "minority" itself remains a sensitive issue in Turkey. Reliable data on the exact ethnic repartition of the population is not available since the Turkish census figures do not include statistics on ethnicity.[114]

Population Transference, the Turkish Precedent
Population exchange between Greece and Turkey

The 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey was based upon religious identity, and involved the Greek Orthodox citizens of Turkey and the Muslim citizens of Greece. It was the first compulsory large-scale population exchange, or agreed mutual expulsion of the 20th century.

The "Convention Concerning the Exchange of Greek and Turkish Populations" was signed at Lausanne, Switzerland, on the 30th January 1923, by the governments of Greece and Turkey. It involved approximately 2 million people, most of whom were forcibly made refugees and de
jure denaturalized from their homelands.

International Hypocrisy: Ignoring Turkish Oppression of the Kurds and Exaggerating the Alleged Offences of Israel
The Rush To Judge Israel
by David Harsanyi
That nation [Turkey], after all, not only instigated this event but also is home to more than 25 million Kurds living in occupied territories -- Kurds who deal with daily human rights abuses: torture, mass disappearances and assaults on their language and culture.

No emergency sessions at the United Nations for them.

No editorial cartoons depicting their

Not many columnists spinning overwrought tales about their plight.

And no U.S. administration is pressuring Turkey to give Kurds their own state.


Because there is always a disproportionate response by critics who claim that Israel and its supporters are the ones with naked and irrational hostility toward ... well, folks who want to see them as smoldering ash.

In all probability, Israel's biggest failure is taking the bait.

The Thugs Were Trained Experienced Mercenaries!
Navy: Activists tried to kidnap 3 commandos during Gaza aid flotilla raid

by Amos Harel


During Israel's takeover of a Turkish ship in the Gaza-bound aid flotilla this week, some passengers tried to take captive three commandos who lost consciousness as a result of the activists' blows, according to early findings of a navy investigation. The three were dragged into one of the passenger halls below deck and were held there for several minutes.

After dozens of other commandos began searching the ship, the Mavi Marmara, the three soldiers regained consciousness and managed to join their comrades.

 "They were terrorists - hired killers who came to murder soldiers, not to assist the residents of the Gaza Strip," said a navy officer.

The operation on the Mavi Marmara began at about 4:30 A.M. on Monday. Because of the presence of hard-core activists including members of the IHH, the Turkish group organizing the aid convoy, most attention went to that ship. Navy chief Eliezer Merom and the head of the naval commandos, Lt. Col. A., were on vessels next to the ship. Lt. Col. A. climbed on the Mavi Marmara during the takeover.

As seen on a video documenting the takeover, the first four commandos to rappel onto the deck were attacked by activists with bars, axes and knives. The fourth commando, K., saw his team leader on the deck, with a Turkish activist holding the pistol he had grabbed from him and pointing it to his head. K. jumped from the rope and managed to shoot the activist holding the gun. This happened 20 seconds after the first soldier landed on the deck.

The commanders of the first unit were hit by the mob as they landed. One of the soldiers managed to fix another rope, after there were problems with the original one, for 10 more soldiers to land. The commandos cared for the wounded and took over part of the upper deck of the ship.

At this stage, six minutes into the operation, another force landed from a second helicopter, led by a major. At that point they realized that three commandos were missing and they began looking for them. A short while later the naval commando chief landed along with dozens more soldiers, some of whom climbed from boats. Others landed from a third helicopter.

The search involved limited shooting, in the bridge and on the lower deck, until the three men were recovered. The head of the naval commandos gave orders by radio to use live fire, two minutes after the incident had begun.

Shots had been fired earlier, but Lt. Col. A. later explained that in his orders he wanted to make sure that the troops realized that "the mood of the incident had changed."

The soldiers reported that the activists had fired on them during the confrontation and that at least two commandos suffered gunshot wounds. After the incident, 9mm bullet casings were found - a kind not used by the naval commandos.

The Israel Defense Forces says that during the operation a number of pistols and an M-4 rifle were taken from soldiers, but they believe that the Turkish activists had other weapons. The captain of the ship told the naval commando chief that the guns were thrown overboard before the ship was completely taken over.

The wounded activists were airlifted to Israel for treatment, some seriously hurt whose lives were saved by the evacuation.

The IDF did not question the activists extensively because of the decision to release them. In conversations after the takeover, activists said they were surprised by the use of helicopters, even though the navy had used this method before. However, nothing else appears to have surprised them because international law requires sufficient warnings before ships are boarded.

Post-operation assessments have the number of hard-core activists involved in the fighting at between 60 and 100. It appears that they were well trained and experienced, especially in view of the arsenal found and code books used to pass on orders from group leaders. Among the rioters, in addition to Turks, were Yemenis, Afghans and one person from Eritrea. All were apparently experienced in hand-to-hand fighting. Some of them did not retreat when shots were fired.

According to a senior officer, "Under the circumstances, and I do not like the result, I think we did the best we could. We took care of five ships without injuries. On the sixth ship, we faced a harsh attack and killed nine saboteurs.

"No real peace activist was injured. No soldier was killed, even though it came pretty close. In the end the ships are docked at Ashdod. It was very complicated and the result is near perfect."

JERUSALEM (Reuters) '
Andre Abu Khalil, a Lebanese cameraman for Al Jazeera TV, said activists initially wounded and captured four Israelis from a first wave that boarded the ship. A second wave of troops tried to storm the ship after the four were taken below decks.

Turkish official says the Israeli-Turkish crisis is far from over.

The US leaned on Israel 'quite a lot' and helped facilitate the speedy release of more than 400 Turkish citizens whom the IDF took into custody on the Gaza-bound protest ships, Turkey's Deputy Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy Selim Yenel told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

During the IDF raid, eight men from Turkey aged between 32 and 61 were killed on board the Mavi Marmara Turkish passenger ship, as was Turkish-American Furkan Dogan, 19.

Dr. Aaron Lerner                   Date: 4 June 2010

Yediot Ahronot Correspondent Itamar Eichner reported in today's edition that the IDF has the following images on film were recovered from cameras (of photographers and security cameras on the boat) on the Mavi Marmara taken in the area that the captured Israeli commandos were held before Israeli forces recovered them:

1. A woman yelling in English with a heavy Arabic accent at Turks bearing knives and clubs to stop beating the soldiers.

2..A man who appears to be an Arab trying to push back the rioting masses with a club in his hand.

3. Europeans trying to protect the soldiers.

It remains unclear how the and when this material will be released.

On the one hand, publicizing the activity of the 'saints' will serve to highlight that even in the eyes of 'normal' people on the boat, the activities of the terror cells on the Mavi Marmara were not acceptable.

On the other hand, releasing such material could expose the 'saints' to retribution.

Eichner reports that the films of the incident include images of the commandos stripped naked, being beaten brutally and calling for help.

Flotilla Participants: The Turks Captured Three Soldiers; We Agreed in Advance to Prevent a Takeover Flotilla participants reported that Turkish activists had attacked several of the soldiers who boarded the ship and tried to take them hostage. Turkish delegation head B'ent Yildirim said: "The Turks captured several of the Zionist soldiers after beating them vigorously."[2] Similar accounts appeared in the Turkish daily Hurriyet. Members of the Kuwaiti delegation also told of the Turks' assault on the soldiers. Salah Al-Jarallah said: "[The Turks] beat the three commando soldiers vigorously with clubs, and the Israeli forces responded by sending in troops who shot bursts of [live] fire at the Turks and killed them."[3]

Kuwaiti parliament member Walid Al-Tabtabai, who was on board the ship, told the Kuwaiti channel Al-Rai TV: "There were violent clashes between the activists and the army, and our friends managed to capture three Israeli soldiers. One of the Turks grabbed a soldier and brought him to us, saying:
'Here is a new [Gilad] Shalit."

In interviews with the Turkish press, friends and relatives of some of the activists who were killed said that they had expressed a wish to become martyrs.

Flotilla participants reported that some of the foreign activists on board converted to Islam during the trip. In an interview with Iqra TV, Sheikh Raed Salah said that he had befriended several non-Arab activists from Europe and the U.S., and that some activists had converted to Islam after befriending their Muslim fellows. He said that one had approached him in tears, saying, "I converted to Islam when I witnessed your brave Muslim

In article in the Hamas bi-weekly Al-Risala, Palestinian Legislative Council Member from Hamas Dr. Salam Salama wrote: "The pure Muslim Turkish Ottoman blood mixed with the Palestinian soil when the shahids and the wounded arrived in our holy, occupied land [after] the savage, barbaric, rapacious Nazi attack on the blockade-breaking flotilla... The Jews, those 21st-century Nazis, did not realize that they were putting the train back on the tracks from which it had been derailed when the Zionists stole Palestine
in 1948.
"...20 grooms could celebrate their marriage to the black-eyed [virgins of Paradise] last Monday, [May 31, 2010]... These valiant shahids who left their homes and families and came to help their enfeebled brothers in the blessed and holy land knew that the sons of Zion would try to stop them [from reaching Gaza]. But they were determined to proceed even if it meant giving their lives. This spirit of self-sacrifice and enthusiasm was a clear expression of their love for the holy land and its inhabitants."[24]

Questions to be Answered:
(a) Were twenty killed?
Were the others terrorists whose presence Turkey cannot admit to?
(b) Why are only black-eyed virgins available?

What do the women get, if anything?
