Humanitarian flotilla for Syria or how CiF Watch got it seriously wrong

Amicus Plato, sed magis amica veritas

In other words, "Plato is my friend, but truth is a better friend".

Now that you all are thoroughly impressed by these linguistic fireworks and, by inference, by my sterling qualities, we can get to the subject: My friends of CiF Watch, striving to put their finger on yet another anti-Zionist, blundered into a grave miskate.

...for over a year now the Syrian people have been the Arabs most in need of aid in the Middle East, and yet the ‘humanitarians’ are nowhere to be seen.
And they illustrate the situation as they see it by this excellent infographic:

Such a valiant effort, but it went wrong, and I can't keep quiet because of wrongly interpreted sense of friendship. Sed magis amica veritas, ladies and gentlemen. So here comes the truth:
There is evidence to suggest that IHH, the Islamic charity that helped organise the 2010 flotilla to Gaza, has been involved in gun-running to Syria on behalf of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Free Syrian Army commanders have told The Times that a boat containing weapons that docked in Syria this week was registered to members of the IHH, which has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
And if you consider this effort being anything else but humanitarian, tell me what could be more humanitarian than a well placed bullet from a smuggled AK-47 that stops suffering of a human being?

So there...

More on nice folks from IHH.

Reminds me of the Palestinian "ambulances" which ferried their fighters to and from the action, not to mention guns and explosives.
