Turkey has been smuggling weapons to the Gaza strip.

Early in the year,I do recall a very showy instruction by Turkey to force down an Iranian cargo plane bound for Syria, it was held for about 48 hours, ostensibly to be searched………………or was it ?
This article appeared for about 24 hours, but later denied !
At the time I thought it odd & said so on the Turkish Hurriyet news website, my feeling was that this plane could well be being loaded with arms but for the media only, being searched.
Now it seems I may well have been right, because in June the following article has appeared….which I have found quite by accident :

“If Erdogan’s opposition to Israel was limited to the diplomatic arena, the situation would be bad. But to make matters worse, as its relations with Syria and Iran have warmed, Turkey appears to have become a conduit for the smuggling of weapons to Israel’s enemies.
In an incident reported by Turkish newspapers, a train traveling from Iran through Turkey to Syria was derailed, apparently by Kurdish rebels, in May of last year, exposing a cargo of rockets believed to be destined for Hezbollah.
The Turkish government has never offered an adequate explanation for this shipment of weapons across its territory.
It is in this context that Turkey’s official support for the Gaza flotilla becomes so problematic: Not only were the ships financed by a Turkish charity that belongs to a Saudi umbrella organization linked by the U.S. Treasury Department to terrorism, but if the ships succeed in opening a trade route bypassing Israeli inspections, they could end up giving Hamas an unfettered supply of weaponry.”

Who were the idiots promoting Turkey’s membership to the EU ?

In todays news the AKP are discussing shared intelligence services with Iran & Iraq, it would seem Turkey has shed all loyalties to the West & Israel !!!
Is this what the Turkish voter wanted,they thought they were going to get democracy & the EU, in reality,what they are going to get is war.
Is it also any wonder the IDF appeared to be heavy handed on that flotilla ?
