On Sunday, August 15, 2010, I wrote an article under the title Manuel Tapial and terrorism. Among other things I denounced Manuel Tapial's support for terrorist organizations such as Hamas, which he compared with the armed resistance against fascist Francisco Franco and that against the nazis. I also explained how his language was comparable to that of E.T.A., the well known Basque terrorist organization.
Manuel Tapial was on board the Gaza flotilla when it was stopped by the Tzahal almost one year ago. The organization behind it was the I.H.H., a self-proclaimed Turkish N.G.O., which is also supported by Manuel Tapial. And recently, we could see the Spanish activist meeting Hussein Orush, one of I.H.H.'s representatives, as shown in the image below, uploaded from a Manuel Tapial's Facebook contact (Manuel Tapial is at the left, Hussein Orush is the second from the right).
The text under the photo reads as follows (translated as accurate as possible, between quotation marks):
"Here we are with Hussein Orush, representative of the Turkish I.H.H., a model organization because of his fight for the defense of the Palestinian People."
Can the I.H.H. be considered a model organization? No. It's in fact an organization linked with terrorist activities, according to the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center as well as the Danish Institute for International Studies. Please read their linked reports and you will be able to understand what can be actually seen in the upper photograph: Manuel Tapial meeting a representative of a criminal organization.
