Conspiracy Theory - The Mossad is Behind the Istanbul Attacks

  • "The bombing of the two synagogues in Istanbul, and before, the attack with a booby-trapped car on a Jewish synagogue in Casablanca, aroused different Arab responses, to the extent of contradiction. There are people who condemn it considering it as a terror act, from which the first and the last to be benefit is 'Israel', the Zionist movement and the international Jewish power… Many of those who hold this view are convinced that the Mossad and its members and agents, are responsible for these criminal acts, according to their custom to commit whatever they think can serve their imperialistic colonial plan and to arouse doubts concerning their opponents…

    The Arab commentaries believed that there are Jewish wise people within the negative results of the European survey towards 'Israel' and within the attacks in Istanbul, which made them review their unlimited support to the Zionist hostility in Palestine…

    In light of the above mentioned, we can say with all certainty that the Istanbul attacks, and the former attacks in Casablanca, and every hostile action against the Jews outside of the Arab occupied land, is not in line with the Arab Islamic culture, as opposed to its total accordance with the Jewish racist culture".

    Synagogues in Istanbul - to Whose Interest?",

Cartoons

Al-Ittihad, November 18, 2003
Sharon (?) as a king, saying: "I am Israel, and Israel is me". The Jew on the left is applauding him.

In Arabic: "The European Legation".


Al-Ittihad, November 3, 2003
In Arabic: "Anti-Semitism".


Al-Ittihad, November 1, 2003
This cartoon appeared also last year (June 11, 2002) - The man on the right represents "the Zionist lobby in America"; the man on the left represents "the American lobby in America". The Jew says to the man in front of him: "I would like to know - you are here because...?" (Literally: "You are here as...?", meaning to say: "what is your function here?")
