More revelations about the terrorist links and agenda of the Turkish IHH organisation, which was at the forefront of the Gaza Flotilla violence in May:
One of the activists who had taken part in the Gaza flotilla had participated in previous terror attacks, according to a recent report in the Turkish newspaper Hürriyet.
