There are reports circulating about Turkey sending in Air Support for the Floatilla, given the recent falling out between Israel and Turkey, this could get really ugly, really quickly. If this situation doesn't calm down, we could be looking at the real deal here and Turkey is no small unorganized resistance movement Israel can kick around and round up at will. I hope it doesn't escalate, but that said, Israel has kicked these people around long enough, and it's time for somebody to step in, spank thier talmudic little bottoms and start canceling checks. If humanitarianism and accountibility means war then maybe it's high time for it. NATO has invaded and bombed better countries for a hell of alot less than what's been going on here for fifty years now.
I'd like to see Israel get away with the same attacks on an American funded and operated flotilla, where do I send the food?


Like i said before...advocating and endorsing war.

god you liberals make me sick. america cant go to war....but you advocate for our allies to get beaten like a drum...

This is being picked up by the western MSM now, seen the story on Fox, CNN, and MSNBC.

Of course they don't discuss that the flotilla was in international waters, and they barely touch on the violent assault on unarmed civilians.

Also apparently Israel also opened fire onto the gaza beaches, according to some of the "sources" the death toll for this attack is at 10.

Russia Today now covering it
rt.com...




Two people have been killed and about 30 injured as an Israeli gunship allegedly attacked the flotilla carrying humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip, reports Al-Jazeera news channel.
Around midnight Sunday the Israeli navy intercepted the fleet of ships about hundred kilometers off the coast of Gaza. They sent out warning signals for the ships to turn round.
A detention center has been established in the southern Israeli city of Ashdod to hold those activists who refuse to turn back. Israeli forces insist that they want to check the cargo aboard.
The international flotilla is an effort aimed at lifting the blockade posed on Gaza by Israel three years ago. Earlier, Israel vowed to stop the vessels. Israeli authorities have refused to comment on the situation. Radmilla Daniell, a pro-Gaza activist, told RT that so far it has been impossible to establish contact with the international activists onboard the ship.

Passengers on the ships were instructed to don life vests as organizers warned of potential Israeli violence.


Next time wear bullet proof vests and NATO warships as escort.

There is a big difference between hating Israel and being an 'anti-semite'.

This is despicable, and I hope there is some serious repercussions and serious reporting of this issue.

Its ridiculous.

I don't know what else to say except I'm pissed off.

Among the wounded are EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT MEMBERS.

Now if the European Union supports Israel, there's gonna be hell to pay.


And the riots aren't occurring just at the Turkish Israeli embassy... but in SEVERAL embassies across the world.


Time for the whole world to expel Israel ambassadors, put sanctions and arrest warrants on the Israeli military and political leadership. Also an ARMS EMBARGO ON ISRAEL.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WITH THE WAR CRIMES.

And just you watch Obama protecting Israel, Harper too. Those two zionists bastards.

BBC is saying:

The interception reportedly took place in international waters, more than 150km (90 miles) off the coast of Gaza.

Jews and Israel are two separate things. Jews are ordinary people like you and me who practice their faith. Israel is a fascist state who's military murders innocent people and whose government sanctions it. Yes there are a lot of Jews in Israel but I doubt you would be accused of being prejudice against Germans if you said you hated the Nazis.


WRONG! in war innocents are killed. you are advocating for war! israel is a nation of jew! if you actually STUDIED the history of israel you would understand why you are naive and INORANT of what you speak!

I would totally support a war against Israel. Nothing is going to change until that joke State is brought to it's knees through violence.

So Israel murders innocent people and when people say that's messed up, you label them as ""anti-semite."

Say, aren't you the guy who posts all the Pro-Israel propaganda? Do clue us in to how Israel was right and just in this incident.


No but im saying this is turning into a anti-semite thread...thats what its turning into.

It is turning into a hate fest!

You people are practically advocating for war you fool!

"ISRAEL MUST PAY", ISRAEL IS GETTING WHAT IS COMING TO THEM"

"EUROPE MUST FLEW ITS MUSCLES"

"COWARDS"

"MURDERERS"

GIVE ME A BREAK!


Of course it is, is there a better way to get the thread closed than start throwing the hate word around? Israel fired on innocent civilians bearing humanitarian aid in international waters, for the umpthteenth time, and this time, this time, it was on camera for the world to see finally. Israel deserves the fallout, if that fallout is war, then maybe they will think about that before they lob shells into civilian humanitarian convoys. Where I'm from it's called come-uppance, and it looks like Israel is long over due for a slice of humble pie.

Only half of Israel population are JEWS. You obviously don't know the difference between a zionist and a jew.

FORCE THEM TO MAKE PEACE. FORCE THEM.

Do like we did to Germany after WW2.

STRIP THEM OF EVERYTHING MILITARY, OCCUPY THEM AND FORCE THEM TO PEACE.

Blah blah blah, I don't care what ideas you got running around in your head or what your notion of history is. What matters is there's a fascist state murdering innocent people and extorting and playing dirty games with governments all around the world. Whatever spin you want to put on it, you're damn right I want to see Israel brought down. Until that happens there won't be peace in the middle east.

...And it's spelled "Ignorant"... irony...

A few snippets:

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said that after a security check, permitted humanitarian aid confiscated from the boats will be transferred to Gaza through authorized channels. However, Israel would not transfer items it has banned from Gaza under its blockade rules. Palmor said that for example, cement would be allowed only if it is tied to a specific project.


Some 700 pro-Palestinian activists are on the boats, including 1976 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire of Northern Ireland, European legislators and an elderly Holocaust survivor.

The holocaust survivor is obviously an anti-Semite.

No, I would prefer for my thread to not be closed. whilst you might like the information to be buried and out of the public views, I do not. This needs to be discussed and seen by ATS as a whole.

You cannot excuse the state of Israel for an act of war, and that is what this is.
