Turkish Flotilla Passengers Joined Nakba Protest in Jordan

(Jerusalem Post) Yaakov Katz - On Monday, the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center revealed in a new report that a group of Turkish Islamic IHH members who were aboard the Mavi Marmara last year, participated in a violent anti-Israel demonstration in Jordan earlier this month on "Nakba Day." The bus carrying 28 Turkish activists was initially detained in Syria since some had Israeli stamps in their passports, a result of their deportation from Israel following last year's flotilla. The delegation eventually arrived at the Israeli-Jordanian border opposite Jericho and began marching toward the fence while violently clashing with Jordanian security forces. "The delegation's decision to participate in the demonstrations in Jordan was not spontaneous but is part of a larger campaign by radical Islamic elements from groups like IHH to try and breach Israel's borders, whether by land, air or sea," the report concluded.
