Did the father of a radical Islamist travel to the White House with the Turkish PM?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

TheBlaze.com broke a story this morning that has gained a surprisingly small amount of additional media attention.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan allegedly invited a special personal guest to accompany him on his visit to the U.S. this week.

According to Turkish media, the father of one of the radical Islamist activists killed in Israel’s raid on the Mavi Marmara in 2010 (the Gaza flotilla) was included as an invited guest in the prime minister’s delegation in the hopes he might be able to meet President Barack Obama.

Furkan Dogan, a 19-year-old with both Turkish and U.S. citizenship, joined the Gaza flotilla where he expressed his desire for “martyrdom.” His father now wants the U.S. government to sue Israel over the raid in which the IDF says its forces were defending themselves from what appeared to them to be an organized attack launched by passengers armed with knives and metal bars as the commandos boarded the ship.

“According to Turkish media, the father of one of the radical Islamist activists killed in Israel’s raid on the Gaza flotilla was included as an invited guest in the prime minister’s delegation in hopes that he might meet the President,” Glenn said.

According to the report, the father wanted to give a letter to President Obama, so the Prime Minister added him to his entourage for the trip. While the Prime Minister said that he could give the letter to Obama, but it would be better for the father to give the letter to the President himself.

One of the major focuses of this meeting between the Turkish Prime Minister and President Obama was to improve Turkish/Israeli relations…and no one thought this was an important detail to report.

“No one, no one reported about this?  No one knew?  No one?” Glenn asked. “Can we get some answers from the White House?  Did you receive a letter from a, quote, martyr’s father about suing Israel on the same trip where you come out into the rose garden and you say you’re trying to normalize relations between Israel and Turkey and you’re standing next to the prime minister of Turkey who says that’s what he’s there for and yet the prime minister of Turkey has a guy on the delegation who he wanted to introduce to the president so he could ask him to sue Israel for the Gaza flotilla.”

As of this morning, the only outlets reporting on this story were Turkish media and the Jerusalem Post.

“Turkey is no doubt proud of it,” Pat commented. “And in Jerusalem they are reporting it because they’re aghast over it,” he later added.

Glenn agreed.

While this administration may take a strong stance against Al Qaeda, they’re stance against terror is faulty, Glenn explained. He explained that while the average American following what it is happening in the Middle East put all terror groups into the evil category, that does not seem to be the case in the White House.

“Make no mistake:  We are not against terror.  We are against Al‑Qaeda.  We are for terror.  We really are.  This administration, you have to understand, we lump ‑‑ we lump Al‑Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.  You and I, we lump it together.  This administration does not.  We understand.  It comes from the same root.  It comes from Saudi Arabia.  But one said, “Wait a minute.  Saudi Arabia, you know, you’re off the ‑‑ you’re off the beaten course here and you’re with America.”  And we helped design them.  We helped fund them.  We helped arm them, and we’re doing it again,” He said.

    Obama has smuggled arms to terrorist groups in clear violation of international law and treaties, and in the process committed treason here at home. This is in addition to leaving the four men in Benghazi to die to cover up his crimes, and in the issuance of TWO ‘stand down’ order.

    Its past time for Obama to answer for his crimes.

      If true, and I think it is, this is aid and comfort to the enemy, which is treason as put down in the Constitution. Is it not?

    Based on the evidence presented, and the history of terrorism support with Obama, I would have to say yes.

    Here is another matter of interest…

    It looks like CIA Secretary Brennen is in Israel on ‘secret business’ according to the following article:http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/may/17/cia-chief-john-brennan-israel-mystery-stop/#comment-900234712

    My question – why?

  • landofaahs

    And they want the nat gas pipeline to run through Turkey but Syria is in the way and Russia does not want the pipeline to Europe because they want the control and recapture and spread of their once empire.

      And the Turkish Islamic supporters of Obama want the Caliphate back with one small change – instead of Jerusalem as its capital, Istanbul.

    Now a day having a radical Islamist activists father over in the White House is not shocking what would news be worthy if Obama kicked him out. I thought Obama was a friend of Israel left?

    This begs the question: what was the Turkish PM really doing there? Do they want us to believe that Barry Hussein is negotiating improved relations between Turkey and Israel?

    I bet the Secret Service was jumping for joy on this one, too!

    • Sandie

      Turkey is the Iran – Syria connection. Is he helping Obama or using the fool?

        Using him for weapons, money, and possibly manpower. Barry Hussein is a joke, and the world knows it, especially our so-called enemies. He may call them friends, but we don’t.

          EXACTLY !

    Obama is a fraud.  He is here to help the Muslim Brotherhood take over the Middle East and the world.  The communists will get their cut as well. This is the same evil that caused WWII.  The hatred of Jews and Christians is what the commies and the muslim have in common. Plus they want to take over the world.  That’s their ultimate goal.

      Totally agree with you.  It’s about time people get brave and write their true thoughts.  You speak volumes, thank you.

    Did the state department  know about this guy coming into America and who allowed him into the country?

    Would I expect anything less from this so called president.  But of course he had no idea what was going on. He learned it from the media. He was surprised and furious.

    Useless idiot.    And one of the most useless countries in the world.  (Turkey) named after one of the most stupid birds in the world. Goes hand in hand.

    Turkey warned Israel if they attack anymore weapons inside Syria that Israel would have to deal with Turkey.  HAHAHA  OKAY    Turkey won’t deal with the 70% of the Syrian forces sitting in the desert doing nothing.  I guess they are to busy handing out weapons at the syrian border. Chumps.

    Was he allowed in our WH? Did he actually have contact with the President? And why would he be allowed in our country to advance his cause of hatred of Israel? Who benefited from this? Our friend Israel, or the extremist?

    Obama is nothing more than a figurehead that has allowed the liberal politicians and appointees to operate unsupervised to achieve their political agenda. We are seeing the results of his incompetence, inexperience and failed leadership.

    that’s right — this administration doesn’t mind terrorizing, they will use it themselves — they already have.

    The Obama regime is soooo in bed with the wrong side od America it is PATHETICALLY appalling.  Obama has crossed the line of impeachment so many times  and zero is done, reported, denounced, that it is undoubtedly coming to haunt us in a short time.  Are people living in another planet not to see all his  wrongdoing, all the treason by this president?

    Let me get this straight.  The white house is closed to the American people to tour, who’s house it is, yet the goddamn moslem terrorists are allowed?  No surprise there.  Another ‘in your face’ red flag, yet stupid bastards won’t see it.

    It would be good to post and share ‘the only outlets reporting on this story were Turkish media and the Jerusalem Post’ links.  Thank you

    Correction Furkan Dogan is and was a US Citizen at the time of his death. His father Professor Ahmet Doğan, is a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, USA (MBA in accounting) and currently a Professor of accounting at Erciyes University, Turkey. The article is misleading and deceptive, as it implies that the individual was brought into the US by the Turkish PM. Whereas Professor Dogan has a Green Card and travels to the US regularly.
