Add Turkey to "State Sponsors of Terrorism" List
- Daniel Pipes
According to Israeli intelligence, Hamas has moved its outside-Gaza headquarters from Damascus to Istanbul [Turkey]; it is headed by Saleh al-Arouri, whom Israel Hayom calls "an infamous arch-terrorist believed to be responsible for dozens of attacks against Israelis."
Arouri recently plotted at least two very ambitious but foiled operations, including "an attack on Teddy Stadium in Jerusalem, and an attack on the light rail train in the capital."
The claim of Hamas planning destruction from its Istanbul base needs to be investigated by the U.S. government and, if found accurate, the Republic of Turkey then placed on the "State Sponsors of Terrorism" list. (National Review)
