U.K. ‘Deplores’ Gaza Flotilla Deaths

blogs.wsj.com...

"Britain’s Foreign Secretary, William Hague, strongly condemned the attack and called on Israel to lift its blockade of Gaza."

[QUOTE] “We have consistently advised against attempting to access Gaza in this way, because of the risks involved. But at the same time, there is a clear need for Israel to act with restraint and in line with international obligations. It will be important to establish the facts about this incident, and especially whether enough was done to prevent deaths and injuries.”‪

“This news underlines the need to lift the restrictions on access to Gaza, in line with UNSCR 1860. The closure is unacceptable and counter-productive. There can be no better response from the international community to this tragedy than to achieve urgently a durable resolution to the Gaza crisis.”

“I call on the Government of Israel to open the crossings to allow unfettered access for aid to Gaza, and address the serious concerns about the deterioration in the humanitarian and economic situation and about the effect on a generation of young Palestinians‪.” /[QUOTE]

My first question would be, of course, why in the hell would a peace loving humanitarian aid summer cruise be carrying enough weapons to hold up a resistance against Shayetet 13?

My second one would be, how would, let's say the United States, Russia or China quell the resistance? I'm sure they wouldn't be dropping in by helicopter in hopes of gaining control over the ship, but instead fire upon the flotilla with artillery?

I was PERSONALLY told by a soldier in the commandos which is a close friend of mine that the Israeli task force did NOT cock their weapons untill a soldier was severely injured.

I"m sorry ladies and gentlemen, but you cannot have anyone, especially crazy Muslims running around on fantasy voyages in your territorial waters, note the they were not rammed by IDF Sa'ar 5 gunships, but delicately put in place by some of the most precise soldiers in the world.

Why must they provoke us so? what was that flotilla good for? people, you are losing your grip on reality, nobody want's a Gaza near them. Nobody want's these crazed fanatics around.
Israel is your first line of defense, support it with all your might. I promise you, you do not want the people in Gaza coming to your doorstep...

Who can answer my questions I'll be delighted to be enlightened!

EDIT: Israeli soldiers were armed with PAINTBALL GUNS

Excuse me.

These racists you talk about won't like muslims or jews so why would they come to the defence of the muslims ?

Seems to me you want to have your cake and to eat it.

'propaganda' is pretending an attack on a peace convoy in international waters bringing food aid to muslims under seize should be allowed to stand without question.

Would you like to stick to the facts and explain how steeling land from an enslaved people is somehow right to someone that does not like muslims in the least and yet knows wrong from right.

'propaganda' rules supreem on our TV screens but it does not rule here no matter how often you place the race card we all know right from wrong.

Nice try pal.

But this occurred in International waters.

Are you going to pretend Israel owns those?

Who are the terrorists that we are supporting? Defending your own boat inside international waters isn't terrorism. Providing aid for Gazans benefits terrorists??? ...Because surely the terrorists are much more likely to get angry & fire rockets into Israel because their kids didn't die of malnutrition?!!!


and then:

Never said Islamic people were terrorists.


You implied we were supporting some "terrorists". If not an ambigious referral to muslims & aid convoy passengers, then who? Turks? Gazans? Egyptians? Or even Spanish who were on the aid convoys.....

It's cumulative



That's what you need to remember. It will make you feel better



Murdering aid-workers today

Slaughtering children

Bulldozing poor homes

Slashing olive groves

Beating old people and children

Denying women in labour medical assistance

Lying

Stealing

Bombing US ships

Stealing Palestinian beds and pots and pans back in 1948

Boasting openly about how they call the shots and not the United States

Begging, lying, wailing


It's cumulative


And every atrocity for which they're responsible continues to be added to the scales ... drop by drop of people's blood

As well, every sickening act of insane blood-lust they commit awakens thousands more, around the world

So, when you're down, remember the greedy man who kept adding more and more to the load. Until that last straw ... just a straw ... was the tipping point. And the camel's back broke under the accumulated load and abuse


We are the camel

Israel is the greedy man

Straw by bloody straw ... thinking it can continue getting away with it ... israel continues writing its own final and bloody end


it will die with a whimper, despite it's insane boasts about being 'the mad dog' that terrifies the world


Yes, more lives and rights will have to be surrendered to israel's greedy, slavering jaws before it's shot between the eyes

but that shot will come

and israel will be consigned to the cold pages of history

After that, it will never rise again


time .... all in time

We respect your entitlement to an opinion mate. However...

Give up trolling and go join your Israel will kick ass buddies over on your own thread, and glory in murder

Time and time again Israel has violated human rights of Palestinians.

They are murderers and should be charged as such.

Disgusting and indefensible scum.

To get your way of thinking, to see this statement is enough for me.
Concepts and labes like "crazy muslims" "fantasy voyages" indicates the discourse of what Edward Said called orientalism. Muslims are crazy, stupid, half animal, or live in an irrational and dangerous fantasy. On the other hand Israel and the part of western world supporting Israel are rational, clever and of course strong. This is an old discourse, an imperialistic discourse which is ending.
Looking to your name, I thought you might be Noam Chomsky, but seems the opposite.

I don't know what crazy propaganda you got floating through your country right now but there were no arms on the ships. Your politicians have been running marathons creating new stories. You could go back through this thread and read each of them as they happened but I doubt you will.


My second one would be, how would, let's say the United States, Russia or China quell the resistance? I'm sure they wouldn't be dropping in by helicopter in hopes of gaining control over the ship, but instead fire upon the flotilla with artillery?


I'm not sure but I doubt they would drop commandos from helicopters to gun down civilians.


I was PERSONALLY told by a soldier in the commandos which is a close friend of mine that the Israeli task force did NOT cock their weapons untill a soldier was severely injured.


I was PERSONALLY told by someone that Elvis is still alive. And you managed to get that info in all this chaos a mere six hours after it happened? Gee I would think the soldiers would be at base or being debriefed right now. But now they're off running around spreading the tales of their deeds.


I"m sorry ladies and gentlemen, but you cannot have anyone, especially crazy Muslims running around on fantasy voyages in your territorial waters, note the they were not rammed by IDF Sa'ar 5 gunships, but delicately put in place by some of the most precise soldiers in the world.


They weren't in your territorial waters snow flake. GPS on the ship and your own government has admitted as such. And your precise soldiers managed to kill at least 15 innocent people.


Why must they provoke us so? what was that flotilla good for? people, you are losing your grip on reality, nobody want's a Gaza near them. Nobody want's these crazed fanatics around.


Yeah provoking you by bringing food and aid to the people your nation is oppressing and starving.


Israel is your first line of defense, support it with all your might. I promise you, you do not want the people in Gaza coming to your doorstep...


First line of defense for what? Instigating international acts of war? Shooting peace activists? Oppressing hundreds of thousands of people?

Yeah you're a real cracker jack authority on this subject ain't ya.

Hey man, i'd be happy to try and answer your questions.


Originally posted by NoamC

Okay let's just say you try and kick down my bedroom/study door. The first thing i'd be hitting you with is my heavy ash tray, secondly i'd hit you with my rather sturdy lamp, after that i'd reach over and probably at this point be laying into you with my guitar. That's assuming my pen knife, keys, cricket bat or iron weren't at hand.

All deadly weapons in the right hands. Now add a few hundred people with their own posessions, and i'll let you enlighten yourself with some terribly easy mathematics.



My second one would be, how would, let's say the United States, Russia or China quell the resistance? I'm sure they wouldn't be dropping in by helicopter in hopes of gaining control over the ship, but instead fire upon the flotilla with artillery?


This i cannot answer. As i am not a tactician or assault force commander.



I was PERSONALLY told by a soldier in the commandos which is a close friend of mine that the Israeli task force did NOT cock their weapons untill a soldier was severely injured.


Mind asking him to sign up here then, with some evidence. That'd be great. Otherwise it's your word.



I"m sorry ladies and gentlemen, but you cannot have anyone, especially crazy Muslims running around on fantasy voyages in your territorial waters, note the they were not rammed by IDF Sa'ar 5 gunships, but delicately put in place by some of the most precise soldiers in the world.


And Irish and english, italian, australian, swedish, arab, palestinian, Israeli .... yep a BIG bunch of people. Also get your facts straight - INTERNATIONAL waters.



Why must they provoke us so? what was that flotilla good for?


Provoking us? I'm assuming you're Israeli. The flotilla had food, medicine, water, first aid etc etc. So it was GOOD for lots and lots of things. Mainly helping people.



people, you are losing your grip on reality...


No sir, that's you.



Who can answer my questions I'll be delighted to be enlightened!


Consider yourself semi-delighted.

Israel is the tumor of Middle East.There won't be any peace in ME until this tumor exists.

Israeli submarines have sorrounded Iranian waters, cruise missiles with nuke warheads ready to be launched.

Israel deliberately carried out this attack on innocent civillians to show the world who the boss is, meaning they can do what they want because the own the West.

Dont tell me where to go or what to do. You just dont like someone having an opinion different to yours. You people dont discuss events. You form your opinion too quickly and ignorantly stick by it till the end.

REALLY? Then PLEASE go and tell the twenty or so dead people that they aren't dead.

Methinks you're another one of 'those' types. So easy to spread disinfo, so quickly to be burned down.

Next...

The flotilla had purposefully stopped for the night in international waters with plans of trying to run the blockade in the daylight. The ships were searched for weapons before they left and the passengers went thru body scanners to check for weapons as they boarded. The only "weapons" on board were those carried by the pirates. If a few of them had their weapons taken and used against them then oh well. For Israel to attack them in international waters is no different that the somali pirates attacking the ships. It is piracy, pure and simple. Of course those on board tried to defend themselves with whatever was at hand.

Like the Al Jazeera reporter said to the Israel PR guy, if they wanted to minimize the potential for bad things happening, then why didn't they arm at least the first wave with "Non-lethals" or "less lethals" like rubber bullets and have a second wave standing by with live ammo. This was a pirate raid in international waters. How is this different from the somali pirates attacking a US ship in international waters?????

More importantly, how is this different than Iranian naval forces attacking a US civilian ship in international waters? What would happen if something like that went down??

You're wrong, you know

We've had a minimum of 60-odd years to form our opinions

and israel's been helping us form our opinions all the way


We've formed the opinions to which we've been forced , by israel



So blame israel. Not the witnesses

No it wont, didnt you know Israel has free reign to do whatever they want and the world just keeps on kissing their backsides, Axis of evil is Israel not Iraq!

Paintball guns... paintball guns... I don't know whether to laugh or be mad right now.

At least this is a fascinating view into what kind of crazy BS they're pumping the citizens of Israel with. No wonder why that place is so messed up.

Its like israel using the excuse of Hamas launching pringle tubes to bomb the crap outa whole of palestine killing thousands.

Why is israel allowed to have hundreds of nukes illegally and Iran/N.Korea not?

Why is the West soo scared of speaking against israel? Why are they funding and arming little israel to kill civillians?

Witnesses state that Israeli ships fired before landing commandos.

This video clearly shows passengers talking of Israel killing at least 1 person and injuring many before the passengers raised a white flag to surrender. Then a few minutes later passengers responded by hitting a commando repeatedly with an iron bar because of the immediate danger perceived by commandos bearing down on them. The commandos then fire and kill 20 people & injuring many dozens more. The evidence of war-crimes against humanity is there and there's no escaping it for Israel. The white flag is raised the whole time during the massacre, and the passengers had no chance.

It would seem that the flotilla assaulted Isre=aeli military forces during boarding. Why would you do that but to martyr yourself and try to create an incident. If the flotilla was only trying to help the Palestinians they should not have done that. It would have been better if they had just stood aside and taped the boarding
