May 31, 2012 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - As reported by The Egyptian Independent, an English version of the Arabic language publication, Al-Masry Al-Youm, "Dozens of international activists...landed in Cairo International Airport on Thursday in order to enter Gaza through the Rafah crossing." [source, http://www.egyptindependent.com/news/activists-arrive-cairo-enter-gaza-through-rafah-crossing]
The small contingent of Islamists and their supporters have been drawn from countries hostile to the existence of the State of Israel, coming from "Palestine," Turkey, Morocco and Tunisia, among others. Some Europeans are apparently also involved.
These activists, are operating under a fraudulent cover operation entitled, "Miles of Smiles," an attempt to put a smiley face on Islamic jihad.
The Islamist "Occupied Palestine" blog, states that "former Lebanese Prime Minister Salim Al-Hoss, "is leading the operation." [source, http://occupiedpalestine.wordpress.com/2011/04/19/miles-for-smiles-3-convoy-geared-to-bring-aid-to-gaza/]. "Occupied Palestine," features Muslim extremist rhetoric, such as "We can make peace with Israel, if you can make peace with cancer " [source, http://occupiedpalestine.wordpress.com/2012/05/17/we-can-make-peace-with-israel-if-you-can-make-peace-with-cancer-by-khalid-amayreh/]
Al-Hoss is, as one might expect, a jihadi whose dictatorial rule during the peak of Lebanon's genocidal civil war is a matter of public record.
Not surprisingly, Al-Hoss supports both Iran's expansionist foreign policy as well as its nuclear program. [on the later please refer to the following which appeared on an Iranian state controlled new site, Press TV which is banned in most of Europe for obvious reasons. [see, http://www.presstv.ir/detail/238131.html]
With people of this ilk running "Miles of Smiles," we know in advance that the small group's intent is to further threaten Western interests in the Middle East as well as stoking the fires of the international movement to destroy the Jewish state.
We opine that this event has the full blessing of Egypt's terrorist Muslim Brotherhood, which now effectively controls the country.
