Wow, I have been reading for hours and I'll finally get to post my own opinion on the matter. Here goes:
First of all, I would like to address the issue of whether or not WE ALL just want to hate Isreal... propaganda... etc.
Come on, I try to be as neutral as possible. But this isn't the fist time Israel has committed such acts, and if the world ( or Turkey ) doesn't do
something about it, it wont be the last!
No way, I saw a bit of antisemitism but you cant really use that as a defense here. A very small percentage of the post were guilty of this but the
vast majority weren't against religion. They were against oppression, war crimes, inhumane acts, war mongering and in general, international trouble
" The highly armed and highly trained Israeli commando's were only defending themselves from aggression " . " Warning shots were fired, the
humanitarians should have complied " . " The passengers of the vessels were activists, looking for trouble " . etc...
LOL. International waters = freedom to do whatever they please so long as they abide by international laws ( which they were ). International waters =
Israel had no business trying to tell them what to do, boarding their ship, engaging and killing. International waters = Even if they had arms and
pointed them at, or even engaged any aggressor trying to board the vessel, they had every right to do so. It's called self defense which is a concept
that probably has no meaning to Israel anymore.
Israel is a trouble making state. For years they have been begging to get their asses kicked and I hope it happens, I wish it could be resolved by
peaceful means but it cannot. It's just not going to happen. They need a good ass whoopin!
On a side note:
I did some consulting work for an organization whos IT supervisor was an Isreali with a green card. The guy was one of the worst human beings I had
ever had the displeasure of knowing. Rude, ignorant, conceited, the whole works.
A few months later I got a call from that organization and offered a really big contract because the guy was sick. As it turned out, he wasn't
actually sick but was hospitalized because he finally pissed off the wrong people. He was in the hospital for weeks and even when he got out he
couldn't work because his mouth was wired shut for an additional month or so.
Sad story but it happens. Lesson to be learned?
We have be better than that, we have to be work hard to fight off the negativity and try to be better people. And I'm talking about human beings in
general. I try really hard to be a good person, it isn't always easy but it IS ALWAYS REWARDING!
Grow up Israel, have a heart man!
