Bitte etwas Nachsicht mit dem Herrn Peach. Er ist ja schließlich nicht mehr der Jüngste und da kann dann schon mal etwas durcheinander geraten, zudem die Ereignisse ja schon einige Zeit zurückliegen. ;-))

Nachdem kritische Anfragen als Parteinahme für die rechtnationalistische Regierung Israels zurechtgebogen und in die "richtige" Schublade abgelegt wurden, ist ja Ihre Welt wieder in Ordnung. Dank dessen können Sie sich ja jetzt die Selbstreflextion guten Gewissens sparen und an der internationalen Lobby für DIE Palästinenser stricken. Fragt sich nur, wer DIE wohl sind. ;-))

"Rahab: hatten wir nicht erst kürzlich einen Spezialisten für linken Antisemitismus hier?"

Gibt´s hier einen? - Der würde mich sehr interessieren. Habe da verschiedene Fragen.....;-))

"und wenn du dich dann wieder einklinkst: ich schätze es überhaupt nicht, wenn versucht wird, mir etwas unterzuschieben, was ich nicht denke. wenn du also die auseinandersetzung mit denen suchst, die du für bemäntelte linke antisemiten hältst, dann bist du bei mir an der falschen adresse."

Ich habe keine linken Antisemiten gesucht. Mir liegt an solchen Begegnungen nichts. Leider laufen mir aber immer mal wieder solche Leute über den Weg

Über die IHH, welche die Mavi Mamaris befehligt hat, vom Danish Institute for International Studies

Yet, the phenomenon of charitable front groups that provide support to Al-Qaida is by no means exclusively limited to the Arabian Peninsula. Indeed, elsewhere in the Muslim world, other such entities have been established with near equal success – as in Turkey, with the socalled
Foundation for Human Rights, Liberties, and Humanitarian Relief (IHH). Turkish authorities began their own domestic criminal investigation of IHH as early as December 1997, when sources revealed that leaders of IHH were purchasing automatic weapons from other regional Islamic militant groups.43 IHH’s bureau in Istanbul was thoroughly searched,
and its local officers were arrested. Security forces uncovered an array of disturbing items, including firearms, explosives, bomb-making instructions, and a “jihad flag.” After analyzing seized IHH documents, Turkish authorities concluded that “detained members of IHH were
going to fight in Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Chechnya.”
According to a French intelligence report, the terrorist infiltration of IHH extended to its most senior ranks. The report, written by famed counterterrorism magistrate Jean-Louis Bruguiere, revealed that IHH President Bulent Yildrim had directly conspired in the mid-1990s to
“recruit veteran soldiers in anticipation of the coming holy war [jihad]. In particular, some men were sent into war zones in Muslim countries in order to acquire combat experience.”45
Furthermore, in the hopes of “obtaining political support from these countries, financial aid was transferred [on behalf of IHH], as well as caches of firearms, knives, and pre-fabricated explosives.”46 An examination of IHH’s phone records in Istanbul showed repeated telephone calls in 1996 to an Al-Qaida guesthouse in Milan and various Algerian terrorist operatives active elsewhere in Europe – including the notorious Abu el-Ma`ali, who has been subsequently termed by U.S. officials as a “junior Osama Bin Laden.”
During the later Seattle trial of would-be Al-Qaida Millenium bomber Ahmed Ressam, federal prosecutors called French magistrate Bruguiere to the stand as an expert witness. Bruguiere testified that IHH had played “[a]n important role” in the Al-Qaida Millenium bomb plot
targeting LAX. Under repeated questioning, Bruguiere insisted that “[t]here’s a rather close relation”:
The IHH is an NGO, but it was kind of a type of cover-up… in order to obtain forged documents and also to obtain different forms of infiltration for Mujahideen in combat. And also to go and gather[recruit] these Mujahideens. And finally, one of the last responsibilities that they had was also to be implicated or involved in weapons trafficking.48
Years later, Bulent Yildrim and the IHH also played a key role in galvanizing anti-Western sentiment among Turkish Muslims in the lead-up to the 2003 war in Iraq. By late 2002, the IHH was instrumental in convening large and raucous protest rallies opposed to the thenimminent
effort to depose Saddam Hussein, capped off by the burning of U.S. and Israeli flags.49 Even after the initial U.S. invasion of Iraq, IHH has continued to bitterly oppose the presence of Western troops in Mesopotamia. Leading another anti-U.S. rally in Istanbul in
December 2004, Bulent Yildrim told the Anatolia News Agency, “Intelligence cooperation between the United States, Britain and Turkey must be stopped. Otherwise we will organize actions at every consulate, and if necessary will assembly 50,000 or 100,000 people at the US consulate.”50 Protestors at the December rally reportedly shouted various slogans, including “Murderer US, get out of the Middle East” and “Long live our resistance.”51
Yet, despite all this, the IHH is now active – and outspoken – in providing “charitable donations” to rebel-dominated areas of restive Sunni central Iraq. As he watched IHH truck convoys leaving Turkey for Iraq, Bulent Yildrim characterized U.S. military operations in the Iraqi
city of Fallujah as equally “a strike on Istanbul, Ankara.”52 In mid-2004, IHH issued an English-language news update from its representatives on the ground in Fallujah: “the women and children shot by [U.S.] snipers now rest in a football field turned into a graveyard for the brave freedom fighters who resisted the invasion… The American troops [turned back] the injured being transported to hospitals by shooting at the ambulances. The freedom fighters crashed one airplane and 18 helicopters… Iraqi authorities stated that the resistance of [Fallujah] created a high spirit among their people while causing chaos and confusion among the
Americans… As for the search for a new flag by the transition government, the Iraqis are sending a clear and firm message by raising their old flag in every possible place such as the roofs and walls of their houses, cars and gas stations… All the Iraqis share one hope which is
the departure of the invading Americans. The big bubble of anger that covers all parts of the country can explode any time.”53 IHH has continued in its “efforts” in Iraq, at least as recently as the spring of 2005, when Bulent Yildrim announced the departure of two more truckloads “of humanitarian aid to Fallujah city of Iraq. In the coming days, we will send more aid.”54
Yildrim failed to specify who exactly in the city of Fallujah would be the recipients of IHH’s contributions.
IHH has also helped fill the void created by the departure of other, more brazen charitable front groups, such as the now-banned Benevolence International Foundation (BIF). Only one month before BIF was designated by the U.S. government as a terrorist entity, Halil Demir – a
former BIF public relations officer who had traveled in the Caucasus on official business for the charity – established a new non-profit group (also based in Worth, Illinois) known as The Zakat Foundation of America (TZFA).55 According to its official newsletter, by mid-2003,
Demir’s Zakat Foundation had sponsored at least two truck convoys traveling from Turkey to Mosul, Kirkuk, and Baghdad carrying at least $120,000 in materiel “done in coordination with IHH, a humanitarian organization based in Turkey… Portions of the supplies from [the]
second relief convoy were donated locally by individuals and businesses in Turkey.”56 A photo comparison of images posted on the TZFA’s website demonstrate a consistent pattern of material support to IHH – both in Iraq and Afghanistan.57 In one case, supposed relief workers
wearing smocks marked with IHH’s logo struggle to hold up a TZFA banner for a photo while goods are distributed to Afghan refugees.58 In another instance of clear deception, photos published in TZFA’s newsletter of truck convoys carrying relief supplies from Turkey
to Sunni central Iraq were digitally tampered to remove the original IHH banner hung from the vehicles, substituting it instead with a crude replacement reading “The Zakat Foundation.”59
Organizations such as IHH are quick to respond to natural disasters and other human catastrophes. Unfortunately, these groups often seek to use these situations to gain leverage with destitute Muslim refugees. In August 1999, when a devastating earthquake struck Turkey, IHH reached the affected zones, in some cases, even before the Turkish government. Friction quickly grew between authorities tasked with relief and independent Islamist “humanitarian” groups. Ultimately, Turkey was forced to ban the IHH from participating in earthquake aid efforts because it was counted among several “fundamentalist organizations” operating “secret bank accounts” that were refusing to allow local authorities to oversee the distribution of their aid resources.60

Das solltest Du ihn besser selber fragen:

Für mich ist das, was sich aktuell linker Antizionismus nennt, eine bemäntelnde Umschreibung für linken Antisemitismus. Was Gysi in seiner 88er Rede vertreten hat, war ein Versuch sich von einer solchen Entwicklung abzugrenzen und die LINKE für eine solche Abgrenzung zu gewinnen. Inwiefern er sich da selbst treu geblieben ist, weiß ich nicht.

Ich klinke mich jetzt erst mal aus, muss einiges erledigen.
