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...


Isreal is no Ally of the US, unless of course the symbiotic political parasitism and talmudic aprtheid somehow excuses the fifty year Humanitarian Crisis perpetrated against Pallestinians. Israel went too far this time, yeah sure it probably was a set up, but firing on the flotilla was arrogant and stupid, and it's going to cost them.
Advocating and endorsing war? There's been a war here for nearly half a century, and it's high time it ended.

Ok, I'd just like to say that as a staunch defender of Israel's right to self defense (just take a look at my previous threads/posts) I am absolutely APPALLED by what I am hearing. This act is unconscionable, and criminal.

HOWEVER, I BEG the ATS community NOT to take this situation as an opportunity to vent anti-Semitic hatred, or propagate anti-Jewish sentiment.

Please remember: In the same way that the actions of the U.S. Government do NOT reflect the views and wishes of its citizens, so too does the government of Israel not reflect the views of the average Israeli citizen, or the average Jew in the diaspora.

Already I am seeing a LOT of anti-Semites crawling out of their holes and taking advantage of this horrible situation to spread slander and lies. I appeal to the mods to be vigilante and ensure that this hatred is kept in check, and if at all possible, removed.

Just thought I would add this E-Mail I received from the George Galloway mailing list -


EMERGENCY DEMONSTRATION

MONDAY 31 MAY 2.00PM

DOWNING STREET

It's now been confirmed that Israel has murdered 3 unarmed civilians during an attack on the international Gaza aid flotilla, with new reports saying that 10 people may have been killed.
Dozens of people have been injured.The Gaza Freedom Flotilla is 90 miles from the Gaza shores; sailing in international waters where Israel has no jurisdiction.

Once again Israel is breaking international law and committing piracy and murder. It has long threatened this peaceful Flotilla, and is now determined to stop it from reaching its destination.Approximately 700 civilians are on board the seven ships, of whom 28 are British citizens.

An emergency demonstration has been called for Monday 31 May, 2.00pm, at Downing Street, London SW1 (nearest tube: Westminster), demanding that the British government protest against Israel's violation of international law.

Yep Israel ain't a US ally for one cent.

Now if the good Israeli people took over, then it could be different.

After all Israel is : war crimes, organ trafficking, false-flags, assassinations, concentration camps (gaza and west bank), police state, racist...

All of this is done by the scum in power.

Don't bomb Israel, ARREST THE MILITARY LEADERS AND POLITICAL LEADERS. PUT SANCTIONS ON THOSE INDIVIDUALS.

The live stream is running CNN Turkey right now. Man there's hundreds of people out front of the embassy but they're just milling around. They don't look nearly as pissed off as they did a few hours ago when they were tearing the place apart. I really hope the Turks step up and slap back at Israel, politics and talk will achieve nothing.

The Turkish government had already warned that if Israel attacks the freedom flotilla, then there will be consequences. Going by the reports that are coming in MSM, Israel has indeed attacked the flotilla. Now the reaction of Turkish government could be crucial. If the Turkish government decides to respond, then there could be two possible ways. One, Turkey could approach the U.N and call for a condemnation and protest against Israel. Turkey's new allies, Iran and Syria could also join and call for Israel's condemnation. The other move that Turkey could possibly take is the military one. Turkey could send some of its air or naval assets to protect the Gaza flotilla and to ensure that reaches its destination. In such a scenario, the chances of a military confrontation between IDF and Turkey is very high. Turkey is no pushover when it comes to military capability.

They did this in international waters. This is piracy and breach of international law.

I concur, the thread is for the topic only, not the venting of hatred and vitriol. I do not like having my threads locked, not when they are this important.

On that note, I am hearing unconfirmed reports that turkey is sending air support. I repeat, unconfirmed.

Not to mention because of this, Hamas and/or Hezbollah might be pissed enough to launch rockets at Israel. This could set it off.

And if Israel goes in Gaza or Lebanon, Turkey PROMISED that they would side with them against Israel.


This could go wrong in several ways.
