ISRAEL = TERRORIST STATE

WaterWings's picture
BREAKING: Israel Attack Gaza Aid Ships: 10 dead, 30 wounded Ten people were reported killed and about 30 wounded as Israeli forces stormed a Turkish ship in the flotilla carrying aid to the Gaza Strip, according to Turkish media. The Israeli military declined to comment on the report and organisers of the aid convoy said they were no longer in contact with the boats.

(Reuters) - Israeli commandos stormed a convoy of Gaza-bound aid ships on Monday and more than 10 of the mostly international activists aboard were killed, provoking a diplomatic crisis and Palestinian charges of a "massacre."

I wish I could unjunk this.

Kinda makes me wish one of those Israeli subs would find it's way to the bottom of the gulf.

Every ship to Gaza is an "Aid Ship".  The aid typically consists of several tons of ordnance/munitions.  Long before the "Aid Ship" arrives, Israel knows its last port of call, its manifest (reported/actual), and who is financing it. 

If Israel was a terrorist state, they'd have long ago reduced Syria and Iran to rubble using nuclear weapons.  Your statement is foolish. 

They are attempting, within their means, to create a MAD defensive structure that ensures, in the event of a nuclear/biological attack against their population, that something survives to rain ruination on the heads of the offending party(ies).  It probably means they have decided against a pre-emptive strike, which some game-theorists say would spark WWIII. 

I hope they have made the right decision.  Arabs supply us with oil.  That is all.  Nothing else, not so much as a nifty new-fangled zipper comes out of the Middle East.  I spent 3 months in Saudi Arabia designing optical cable constructions for a push to modernize their infrastructure.  The first country I landed in on the way home was Switzerland.  I made like the Pope and kissed the ground on the tarmac.  Even the flies in Saudi Arabia are bloated, lazy, and offended when you wave them away.

I worked in a Syrian-owned cable facility in Riyadh---Riyadh Telephone Cables (RTC).   There was a hole out back to relieve yourself into.  The only people doing work were Indians and Pakistanis.  The whole country prays 8 times a day and has no time for self-improvement of any sort.  They are too busy hating the West and Israel.  I never saw a woman's face for all the time I was there.  Pure Hell on Earth.  The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

What does Saudi Arabia have to do with Iran again?  MAD would be in place if Iran obtained nukes, Israel already has missiles that can reach Iran, the subs are there to provoke them...  The rest of your comment is even more ignorant.

Israel is trying to starve the people in Gaza to death because they elected Hamas.  Democracy is not always desirable...

Oh, blow me, asshole.  Go to Saudi Arabia and see for yourself what kind of hell they've made for themselves.  Go to any ME country and see for yourself.  Then consider what it's like in Persia.  A thousand times worse.

Nicely played, sir.  Can't sufficiently present a coherent argument or debate, resort to sexual innuendo and name-calling.  I suppose that is the entire first page of your personal rule book.

Yes, I see.  Persia (Tehran) is a thousand times worse:

Amazing. Thanks for the link.

That puts the USA and Israel on the UNCIVILISED list !

They wish to destroy that !

This proposed war is an attack by the Rothschilds and their lackeys for refusing to pay rent via the central banking scams in exactly the same way the Jews declared war on Germany in 1933.

Scroll down to see copy front page Daily Express of 1933.

This is history repeating itself.

Every ship to Gaza is an "Aid Ship". 

Yes, they are.  And that is all that they are.

The aid typically consists of several tons of ordnance/munitions.  Long before the "Aid Ship" arrives, Israel knows its last port of call, its manifest (reported/actual), and who is financing it.

Absolute Bovine Excrement.  Long before the ships leave Cypress, Greece, the ships cargoes are inspected and Israel can call upon these manifests quite easily, even if they didn't want to rely on the copies kept on board the ship during it's sail.  The goal, by Israel, is to further starve Palestinians and impose draconian sanctions.

This is not the first time Israel has attacked aid ships on their way to Gaza.  In December, 2008, Israel did something similar to the boat that Cynthia McKinney was aboard where the Israeli military attacked and rammed that boat as it was on it's way to deliver aid to Gaza.

And just so you know, a lot of what is on those aid ships consists of food, medical supplies and building materials (to rebuild what Israel constantly destroys).  For some odd reason, fueled by ignorance, you "believe" that the ships are loaded with weapons.  WMDs?  Ha, ha, ha.  Please.  What's next?  The flotilla has ties to AL-CIA-Duh?

Also, let me point out that Israel has no right to board or attack a foreign flagged ship in international waters.  Period.  Any ship at sea in international waters, when confronted with a potential act of piracy or an act of war, has a right to defend itself.

If Israel was a terrorist state, they'd have long ago reduced Syria and Iran to rubble using nuclear weapons.

That don't need to use nuclear weapons to do that.  Israel has, many times, attacked Syria (last time was Sept., 2007) and is constantly threatening Iran.  That is, by definition, "terrorism".

Arabs supply us with oil.  That is all.  Nothing else, not so much as a nifty new-fangled zipper comes out of the Middle East.  I spent 3 months in Saudi Arabia designing optical cable constructions for a push to modernize their infrastructure.  The first country I landed in on the way home was Switzerland.  I made like the Pope and kissed the ground on the tarmac.  Even the flies in Saudi Arabia are bloated, lazy, and offended when you wave them away.

Thank you for sharing with us, your hatred of Arabs.  And as far as oil is concerned, I can see that you're quite happy in consuming it.  Next time, don't use a plane or a motorized vehicle as transportation and see how well you manage.  Should those who supply your oil and (according to you) nothing else, should no longer supply it, I'd think you'd be in a zero-sum game.  Think about that for a while.

I worked in a Syrian-owned cable facility in Riyadh---Riyadh Telephone Cables (RTC).   There was a hole out back to relieve yourself into.  The only people doing work were Indians and Pakistanis.  The whole country prays 8 times a day and has no time for self-improvement of any sort.  They are too busy hating the West and Israel.

Then why did you accept the job?  Gun to your head?  According to what you wrote, East Indians and Pakistanis were the only ones doing the work anyway. 

I find your whole rant amazingly contradictory, yet you gladly accepted employment, and worked with, those whom you despise so greatly.  What a farce.  Then you share it with us as though we should be as equally as disgusted.  I'm laughing AT you.

If you want freedom to speak your ignorance freely, then go create your own site where you can drag your knuckles freely.  For it is you that, seemingly, has no time for self-improvement of any sort.

Totally agree with your sentiments about Arabs and the ME for that matter. But that does not change the fact that Israelis entered their land (Palestine) with rifles and a book that said, "We lived here 2000 years ago." So, "Fuck off and get out of your houses and olive groves before we kill you and start !bulldozing !" .......Actions that they then proceeded to carry out.

The Israeli Jews had no Title Deeds to anything at all and are now claiming legitimacy for actions that lack legitimacy at the core. For that reason alone I can't see how you can support them.

How do they know they were Israelis firing at the ships?

AnonymousAnarchist's picture

I'm guessing because the commandos doing the shooting came from Israeli Naval vessels and helicopters. Add that to the fact that Israel has been in the media threatening to use force to stop the aid ships and the question becomes who else would have been firing at them before Israel took control of the ships?

Thank you.  I had not been following the story until your post took me to the FT.  Thanks you again.

I wonder how much of the "aid" included weapons, rockets, bombs, etc?  I'm sure HAMAS would NEVER use civilan aid as a cover for weapons resupply!

Of course this tactic has been used by many over the ages.

jeff montanye's picture

true enough but if so they are fools for they would be psychotically delusional to have weapons on board knowing that there is a near 100% chance the israelis would stop them and seize the cargo.  of course, like many of a truly failed drug bust, there may be "evidence" found that in fact came from the "police" not the "perps".

Here is the list of permitted and banned items (pdf). How do you blow something up with sage?

And, as I mentioned somewhere else, up until 6 weeks ago, shoes were on the banned list.

Maybe sage fools the dogs... Maybe if you're bringing in "sage" they want an excuse to further examine your bags/items and whatever else you are bringing in to the country because the odiferousness of the herb helps hide the scent of other items.

 

It's why I always pack my blow in a container of peanut butter when I go travelling. (I wonder if that urban myth actually works - I'd love to see Mythbusters do that one at LAX).

Was wondering the same thing and trying to figure out route and trans-shipments.  Detonating an ammo ship is so spectacular.  But better to get the rockets before they get deployed in the cities.

Can't read it without logging in but I'm sure it doesn't have anything new. This has been building for the past week so it shouldn't surprise anyone (maybe the MSM sheeple). I figured Israel would board the ships (possibly damaging them first like in the past) and arrest the passengers, but I didn't think they would kill anyone (that doesn't mean I'm surprised).

nyt (israel's friend) reports at least 14 dead.

If Iran wants a nuke, now's their chance. Just hire some Somali pirates to hijack one of those subs.

Likely story. Consider the sources: al-Jazeera, Turkish NTV, ZH.

AnonymousAnarchist's picture

Well, it's all over Israeli TV right now so I'm not sure who would be coordinating all these middle-eastern news outlets. The footage they're showing doesn't appear staged to me.

haaretz.com coverage - ynetnews.com coverage - jpost.com coverage

Thanks. That is some funny shit! It's a very good sign that the propaganda is now only aimed at the lowest common denominator (grown-ups with the minds of children). I guess it's not worth their effort since they were unable to kill one of the satellite feeds that captured the event. Governments hate the internet.

I can't wait to see how the MSM deals with this one. The only way it could get worse for the statists in Israel is if it turns out that any of the more well known passengers (e.g.; Hedy Epstein, Edward Peck, Joe Meadors, Ann Wright, etc.) are among the dead/wounded.

Also interesting from yesterday is a video entitled "US Says Iran Arms Afghan Militants", with part of the caption reading "US General Stanley McChrystal says Afghan insurgents are being trained inside Iran and given weapons to fight security forces."  Love the timing.  http://online.wsj.com/video/us-says-iran-arms-afghan-militants/71D335B1-C1C3-4A82-BF44-DAB1D7A0EE37.html?mod=WSJ_Article_Videocarousel_2

We'd be so lucky to replace CNN or FOX with Al-jazeera.

blindfaith's picture

Americans think Al-jazeera is somekind of terrorist news media. They have no clue that Al-jazeera is one of the LAST real news gathering organizations left in the world with far more objective coverage of events than our own tabloid American pathetic news media. Walter Cronkite would have worked for them in a heart beat. You can pick them up if you live near a Canadian broadcaster, seems at least the Canadians are not afraid of the truth as the American media and government seems to have fears of. Also the internet, but I don't know the www id.

Now...is there some relationship we are not seeing with regard to the Gulf oil crimes?
