Photos: Turkish Journalist Who Took Cropped Pictures Hanging Out with Terrorists

Media • Views: 5,667

Turkish journalist Adem Ozkose was aboard the Mavi Marmara when it was boarded by the IDF, and he is the person credited with the photos that were misleadingly cropped by someone unknown. (And Reuters has ignored requests for more information and accountability, by the way, which means you can expect more incidents like this.)

As we pointed out yesterday, Ozkose is anything but a neutral observer; he’s closely connected to the Turkish Islamist group that organized the flotilla, IHH.

But Adem Ozkose’s connections to Islamists go quite a bit deeper than this. A reader in London emailed a link to the following article about Ozkose published last month at Turkish media site haber5.com: Haber5.com - Gerçek ve Özgürlükçü - Son haberler | Adem Özköse’nin kitapları yolda…

It turns out that Ozkose, as well as working for the Turkish ‘Real Life’ magazine and helping IHH try to run the Gaza blockade, is also a writer of Islamist books with at least one publisher deal and possibly more.

And the article at haber5.com is accompanied by the following picture, showing Adem Ozkose with two of his associates.

UPDATE at 6/11/10 12:09:21 pm:

LGF readers have been digging up more articles featuring Ozkose posing with and interviewing terrorists all over the world.

Using the word “journalist” to describe Adem Ozkose is like calling Al Capone a “liquor distributor.” It’s not wrong, exactly; it just doesn’t tell the whole story. In all of the following cases, the articles written by Ozkose are not merely reporting on terrorist groups — these articles are promoting the jihadist ideology.

Here’s Ozkose interviewing a Hamas spokesman, and openly expressing his support for jihad: Mehraba.com » Özköse Gazze’yi ve Hamas’ı anlattı. (Google Translation.)

Accompanied by this photo:

Here’s Ozkose with a spokesman for Islamic Jihad, spreading the message: “Insurgents who kill civilians is not a killer.”

Accompanied by this photo:

Here’s Ozkose with a very sympathetic article about the Taliban: “The Taliban won the hearts of the Afghan people.”

Accompanied by the following photos:

And here’s Ozkose interviewing Umm Nidal — a Palestinian mother and Hamas parliament member whose three sons were killed while murdering Israeli civilians, some of them children — and treating her as a heroine: “I thank God that seven Israeli soldiers kill Muhammad as my other two sons were killed.”

Accompanied by this photo and translated caption:

Our friend Adam Özköse, visited Umm Nidal’i wife of Hamas in Gaza house of parliament.
