Yes, Ali is a popular Iraqi name. As I recall there was also a "Clerical Ali," although he was a very low level bureaucrat. .

Ah, that's probably what I'm remembering- probably from the Daily Show w/Jon Stewart or something similar.

Thanks for the reminder.

Flotilla massacre: Israel has become a lunatic state with nuclear weapons

www.campaigniran.org.../10239




Norman Finkelstein: Well... I think the important issue is that what happened in Gaza, excuse me, what happened with the Gaza Flotilla was not an accident. You have to remember that the Israeli cabinet met for fully a week, all the cabinet ministers discussed and deliberated how they would handle the Flotilla. There were numerous reports in the Israeli press, numerous suggestions, numerous recommendations about what to do. At the end of the day they decided on a night time armed commando raid on a humanitarian convoy. Israel is now a lunatic state. It's a lunatic state with between two and three hundred nuclear devices. It is threatening war daily against Iran and against the Hezbollah in Lebanon. Hezbollah in Lebanon has already stated on several occasions that if Israel attacks it will retaliate in kind. Things are getting out of control. We have to ask ourselves a simple basic fundamental question. Can a lunatic state like Israel be trusted with two to three hundred nuclear devices when it is now threatening its neighbours Iran and Lebanon with an attack? This is serious issue.




Seriously, who gave those nuclear weapons to Israel? Like, mysteriously, Israel has so many nuclear heads - how?

Is Israel someone's "avatar"?

Watch the entire Al Jazeera footage here: www.youtube.com...

If you watch it from start to finish you can see that the people ARE NOT riled, and ARE NOT attacking anyone, yet you can still hear the reporter saying that the IDF are using live ammunition, they wave a white flag after 1 person dies....
You can even hear some shots being fired in the background.

Then, later in the film you see them all riled up on the main-deck, attacking the helicopter that is dropping troops. This is AFTER you see the boats that are strafing the vessel and possibly firing LIVE AMMUNITION on the vessel.

I feel like the actual assault went like this:

1) The strafing boats fire "warning shots" (as you call them)
2) The captain is dispatched not long after
3) Tear Gas and Flashbangs are deployed
4) The humanitarians grab whatever weapons they can get their hands on
5) The Helicopter drops only enough troops for it to look like the soldiers have no choice but to kill the TEAR GASSED and BLINDED/DEAF activists

6) The IDF begins to lose ground and switch to lethal arms
7) They kill the ones they killed and are able to quell the violence (No IDF video of that eh? Wonder why.....)

8) They escort the ship back to Ashdod from international waters

Now since it all took place in INTERNATIONAL WATERS, because of an ILLEGAL BLOCKADE, then I can conclude the actions of 1-8 are ALL acts of Piracy.....

So we know they shot at people before landing on the ship so were the protestors suposed to meet them with flowers as they came down the ropes.

we also had super-man who just shuged it off as he was being hit with a metal bar or could it be it was not a metal bar like they are saying.

There are already ways to get aid into Gaza. Why did these folks choose a method they knew was prohibited? Seems to me that if they truly wanted this "HUMANITARIAN AID" to get in then they would have done so another way.


Well maybe thats because Paper and cement along with other stuff is confiscated before the aid is past on.

You know the usual rules applied to a prison

He is using the so called "uroboros" tactics. Starts from one point, then makes a wide circle and arrives back at the same point. Calls that "I fought well"


Ferdinand Magellan tried the same - in the end he was eaten by cannibals...




The Ouroboros or Uroborus[1] is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon swallowing its own tail and forming a circle

One of the group deported to Jordan today, Walid al-Tabtabai, a Kuwaiti politician who was on board one of the ships with other activists from Muslim countries, said: "The Israelis roughed up and humiliated all of us, women, men and children.

"They were brutal and arrogant, but our message reached every corner of the world that the blockade on Gaza is unfair and should be lifted immediately."

Like many passengers on the flotilla he insisted there were no weapons on any of the ships.

Algerian Izzeddine Zahrour said Israeli authorities "deprived us of food, water and sleep and we weren't allowed to use the toilet".

"It was an ugly kidnapping and subsequently bad treatment in Israeli jail," he said. "They handcuffed us, pushed us around and humiliated us."

Mauritanian Mohammed Gholam said Israel "wanted us to sign documents saying that we entered Israel illegally".

An Algerian activist, who only gave her first name as Sabrina, accused Israeli commandos of taking a one-year-old child hostage.

"They point a gun to his head in front of his Turkish parents to force the captain of our ship to stop sailing," she said.

Actually he was "Chemical Ali" after his involvement with the mustard gassing of Kurdish goatherders (and other atrocities).

Comical Ali only came after his blustering reports of nothing happening.

He was not just a frontman, he held great power under Saddam, and used it too.

Is it true that they found a death list prepared for the soldiers so that they knew who to assassinate on the boats?

Palestine Think Tank

The only other source that seems to mention this is Prison Planet. If the Turkish news is already talking about it, then why can't I find it? Can anyone here read Turkish?

Here's the excerpt:



Turkish sources and media revealed a document which shows that a death list had been prepared in Picture of the assassination list lost by an israeli soldier.advance by the Israelis, showing names and pictures of people on board of the ships to be murdered, who, according to Israel, were “involved in the International humanitarian aid for Gaza”.

According to the Turkish sources, hundreds of Israeli soldiers stormed the blue Turkish ship “Marmara” flotilla and they had copies of the death list. The list included the names of civilians on the fleet who should be killed”. The document was apparently recovered after one of the Israeli soldiers lost it during the piracy act.

From the way they stormed that ship and what they did, obviously, they wanted to kill someone.

If they wanted to just stop flotilla, they didn't need to kill anyone.

The Israeli terrorist government continue to use Hamas as an excuse for their attacks on the flotilla. They actually describe the peaceful operation as an act of terrorism...or more mildly as a terrorist threat! See below...

Gaza flotilla attack: Israeli ambassador compares raid to Second World War



In an interview with Fox News, he described the operation, in which nine people died, as "perfectly legal, perfectly humane – and very responsible".

He defending the attack in open waters, saying: "Israel acted in accord with international law. Any state has the right to protect itself, certainly from a terrorist threat such as Hamas, including on the open seas.

"The US acted under similar international law when it fought the Germans and the Japanese in World War Two."

Gee, I like these "leaked" documents


More pressure on Israel. Probably this whole action is orchestrated by several big players. And the historical "coincidence" with the SS Exodus incident, which is hardwired into Jewish psyche.




A Vatican document leaked on Tuesday calls the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories a "political injustice", Italy's ANSA news agency reported.

The occupation is a "political injustice imposed on the Palestinians", the Vatican says, according to extracts quoted by ANSA.

"The Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories makes daily life difficult for freedom of movement, the economy and social and religious life," the text says.

The Instrumentum Laboris, a working document on an upcoming synod of bishops on the Middle East, was embargoed for release until Sunday, when Pope Benedict XVI was to present it during a visit to Cyprus.

Umm, speaking of "irrational" and "Biblical"- isn't the Torah or the Pentateuch the actual first 5 books of the Bible?

Also, I'm still waiting on those supporting quotes of yours from this thread, MR...

legal, humane, responsible - appealing to slave conditioning.

To these concepts slaves have no objections. No reaction. Paralysis.
