So Turkey says its Navy will escort the other two ships in, that should prove to be interesting...


You think Hezzbollah/Hamas would have launched endless rockets into Israel right now while they have sympathy.

[edit on 31-5-2010 by CanadianDream420]


The rockets are not a military weapon, in that they are not effective as a killing or destruction tool.

They may on rare occassion kill or destroy something, but the reality is there purpose is political and to give the Gazan's a political spotlight for their plight when all else fails.

They don't fire them to kill Israelis or destroy Isreali property, they fire them for media and international attention when they are getting to no media or interntational attention.

Right now they are getting all the media and international attention they could hope for, so since the rockets have no military effect, and just a political one, there is no need to fire them.

Anyone who thinks Hamas is trying to militarily defeat Israel or terrorize it through the use of small home made rockets is truly off their rocker and a victim of the propaganda machine.

They do that for media attention in hopes that international attention will prevent Isreael from starving them all to death.

Israel has not shown it's true color just now.. its has since the invasion of Palestine decades ago! You ask why would would they do such thing.... simple... to create FEAR and increase the heat to start the next war!

How do you think people would feel after seeing this? They are going to lash out and that will cause for response and so the war begins... at the same time they're creating fear in ANYONE that supports Palestine even if they're from Israel, it's not about the people.. it never has been, it's only about politics!

Ehud Barak says the Activists are Responsible

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak expressed regret over the deaths and blamed the organizers of the aid convoy and participants for starting the violence.


Turkey and Israel: When best friends fall out

In Istanbul, 10,000 people marched on the Israeli consulate.

History is history friend, and political and religious propaganda is political and religious propaganda.


Yes and all sides use it.

It is coming to a point, that people are so wicked and dishonest that the truth becomes illusive.

At 1:03 in your video it shows one of the passengers with a gas mask.

Wouldn't this indicate that the aid workers were anticipating a confrontation?


The strategy of the Freedom Flotilla, however, is to resist any attempts by the Israeli Navy to hijack its ships or to divide cargo ships from passenger vessels.

“The message from Israel is clear: ‘We will stop you. And no-one can prevent us from stopping you.’ said Free Gaza chair, Huwaida Arraf.

“However, we will non-violently resist Israeli attempts to seize our boats. Thousands of people have contributed to making this flotilla a reality, and the people of Gaza are expecting us.


www.freegaza.org...

I think that while many are blaming Israel, they should also keep in mind that these aid workers knew they were going to be confronted and had plans to resist and are just as much at fault for the events that folded out.

Furthermore, and even more important, everybody should focus on how their own government contribution has played a role in not only what is happening in Gaza, but in other parts of the world as well.

Where is the concern for Darfur, Congo, and many other areas that are suffering just as much? Governments have long ignored Gaza, Congo, and Darfur and others.

The Israelis made a big mistake by claiming there were weapons and terrorists on board the aid ships. Turkey had screened all passengers and cargo before departure. So not only did Israel kill a bunch of Turkish civilians, they basically just accused the Turkish government of supporting terrorism.

I was a born again Christian. In heart a seeker of truth. Jesus said you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. I am free. I have, in front of friends and family, denounced Christianity.

I denounce because it is not the "truth" it is in fact humanity's main restrainer against the "truth".

Truth = everything ...from current events, archeological digs and their supporting "mythology", to Jesus having children..which would make the christian church's st. Peter power invalid. Surely if anyone inherits the King of David power it is inline with the rules and regulations involved in the Hebrew old testement.
Now in Isreal are usurpers / ungodly ...as defined by the Hebrew religion.
USA be rid of them and fight their atrocities.
If we just follow our heart we may be able to rid the world of evil.


I hear you friend but the truth is that the Israeli tail does not wag the American dog, what Israel does is give America the pretext for wars for oil in the Middle East and to keep the region volatile and the price of oil sky high.

Isreal also fuels the Middle East Arms race which makes the USA, Britan and France, China and the Soviets a fortune in cash.

The fact that are oil company, and military industrial complex friendly politicians contrive to make it look like it is Israel manipulating us, instead of us using Israel like the very tool for American domination and empire that it is, is what makes it so easy for the politicians to sheild the oil companies and military industrial complex who make so much money as a result of Israel from public scrutiny.

Not only have the Jews always been whipping posts and scapegoats, the average Jew and or Zionist can't even see how they are being manipulated, while they pretend they are not and manipulating others.

They do exactly as they are told to do and everything we see is political theatre to obscure that fact.

Yes from 300ft up in the air on a grainy black & white video feed, I can really see the deranged look in the activist's eyes as they are completely shocked and in awe of strange military figures coming down from a helicopter overhead who haven't made their presence or intentions known.

More to the point, armed to the teeth as if they were attacking a heavily fortified bunker.

And you expected them to do what?

Clearly the murder of 20 Aid Workers is justified. Open & Shut Case.

I suppose the attack on a marked Red Cross Ambulance or perhaps a School in the 2008 Gazan Offensive are also justified?

It's open season on the Palestinians and anyone friendly with them it seems.

The Americans love this though, a great diversion for their operations around Iran and South Korea for these impending wars. Divert the MSM focus to this floatilla attack instead of the real threat to the West.

Ditto and Simper Fidelis. God, Corps and Country. In that order.

This country has stomped on so many warriors that it has ordered into battles that were not for the good of the country but good for a corporation. These leaders should be brought before a tribunal of the nations involved and let justice stand. What will it take..Brutis?

And in this video you can see what looks like masked Hamas militants, or whatever the PC term is for them at,

2:11, 2:12, 2:13,

Filmed by Al Jazerra, which had news crews on board.

So to me it looks like both sides came prepared.

In the middle of the night, in international waters a helicopter popps out of the sky and drops armed men on your deck.

You dont know who they are or what their intent is... what would you do? Not defend yourself against the pirates, which you think they are, with everything you can grab?

I sure would...

Sorry, no way to tell if that's the start of the attack. I have the same problem with ALL the footage I've seen so far, supporting either side's story. I'm not buying either story until I see something that's clearly the beginning, and clear unedited footage of the first act of violence.
