Turkey's conspiracy theory

Turkey has developed a new conspiracy theory. They are trying to connect the IDF Naval Commando raid on the Mavi Marmara with a PKK attack on a Turkish police headquarters the same day (Hat Tip: Joshua I).
Laçiner said during a debate on TRT Thursday evening that he heard there were no images coming from the Herons or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that day. “Usually Turkey uses Herons effectively. There was only one day in which there were no images obtained from the Herons, and that is the day of the attack,” he told Today’s Zaman, but said that he cannot disclose the source who told him that there were no images from Herons that day.

Many Internet news sites have interpreted this piece of information to mean that Israel prevented images to be transmitted from the Herons that day. Today’s Zaman asked Laçiner if this is the case, and he said that although there are suspicions about the incident, he never said that Israel did such a thing.

“Turkey can see immediate data from Herons. Can Israel do that too?” he asked as he raised the question of the level of Israel’s involvement in intelligence gathering for Turkey. He also remarked that Herons are produced by Israel and its electronics systems are also made in Israel.

A rocket attack by terrorists on a naval base killed seven soldiers and wounded six others shortly after midnight in the southern province of Hatay’s İskenderun district on May 31. Within a couple of hours, Israeli commandos attacked a six-ship convoy carrying hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists on an aid mission to the Gaza Strip and killed nine people and injured dozens.
When you're paranoid, you're paranoid.

The Turks really do think Israel has in it for them.

They need to close the Israeli Embassy now, before those Joo Rays really mess up what's left of their addled minds!
