So much for the “peaceful” “non-violent” intentions of the Gaza “aid” flotilla.
Despite announcements from the Turks themselves that the terror organization IHH was not going to participate in the flotilla due to “technical reasons”, intelligence sources say that the IHH is indeed planning to join in after all by meeting up with the flotilla at sea.
As if that were not bad enough, these intelligence sources also claimed that flotilla members were bringing sacks of sulfur (in effect chemical weapons) with them to be used against any IDF soldiers boarding the boats.
IDF sources claimed Monday night that new intelligence information obtained by Israel in recent days shows that participants of the flotilla planning to break Israel’s sea blockade over the Gaza Strip later this week plan to kill IDF soldiers who board their ships.
According to the information obtained by the IDF, some of the participants have prepared a number of sacks with sulfur, which they plan to pour on the soldiers as they board the vessels.
“This is a chemical weapon and if poured on a soldier it can paralyze him,” an IDF source told The Jerusalem Post Monday night. “If the sulfur is then lit on fire, the soldier will light up like a torch.”
The information was obtained from closed meetings held by participants on the ships during which some voiced their intention to “murder Israeli soldiers,” according to the IDF. Also, despite earlier predictions that members of the Turkish organization IHH would not participate in the flotilla, it now appears that some members will sail with the ships alongside additional radical Islamic activists.
As for the rest of the terror-supporters’ claims that they are peaceful and non-violent, it turns out that some of them have direct links to Hamas:
Israeli officials claim that two activists participating in the flotilla have connections to Hamas. They named the first one as Amin Abu Rashad, who they claim is one of the head Dutch organizers for the Gaza flotilla and had served in the past as the head of the Hamas’ Charitable Foundation in Holland. The foundation closed down following Dutch authorities’ probe into its involvement in funding terror activities.
The second activist is Mohammed Ahmed Hanon, which Israel claims is a Hamas activist who stands at the head of the ABSPP, which is involved in transferring funds to terrorists.
Far from bringing (unneeded) aid to Gaza, this “peaceful” “non-violent” flotilla’s least objectionable cargo appears to be “letters“, and the worst might well be (G-d forbid) chemical weapons. While we wait (in vain?) for the world to condemn this aggressive action, just remember this incident the next time anyone talks about “non-violent” protest, “peace” activists and “aid” to Gaza and remind them of their lies and hypocrisy.
