A Swede in Germany

Unfair argumentation methods IXa: Follow-up, German IHH ban

leave a comment »

As I briefly mention in the preceding post, the killed activists where all with the IHH—a Turkish organisation suspected of collaborations with terrorists.

Yesterday, I found out that the German off-shot organisation of the same name has been banned in Germany, with the motivation that it

unter dem Deckmantel der humanitären Hilfe bewusst und gezielt Organisationen unterstützt, die der Hamas zuzurechnen sind oder die ihrerseits die Hamas unterstützen

(under a cover of humanitarian aid, is deliberately and specifically supporting organisations that belong to the Hamas or in turn support Hamas)

(German Minister of the Interior, Thomas de Maizière, according to Wikipediaw:de)

(While the two IHHs appear to currently deny any closer affiliation, they were, according to the quoted Wikipedia page, the result of a 1997 division into a Turkish and a German version—and, considering the circumstances, I cannot rule out untruthfulness in the denial.)
