Haartz in Israel on 12th February reported that (as mentioned in the post about reports by Kenneth Rijock in his blog) a Turkish law professor, Kamil Tekeli, has been deported and an Israeli Arab, Dergham Jabareen, is facing indictment over involvement in a Hamas effort to funnel money for terrorism to the West Bank and Gaza via Turkey, the Shin Bet security service announced.  The Shin Bet statement also accused Turkey of aiding Hamas’ military build-up via a company called SADAT, established by an adviser to members of the current government in Turkey.  It is reported that Jabareen managed to transfer some €200,000 to Hamas operatives in the West Bank, leaving the money at pick-up points agreed in advance. Another €91,000 that he received from Turkey was found in his possession.  A senior defence official told Haaretz that the Turkish government has turned a blind eye to and even encouraged Hamas’ wide-ranging operations in Turkey.
