I honestly think you're grasping at straws here, the figures of people moving away from your typical media outlets to using the internet is very large. Everyone knows(i hope) about the barbaric attack on the aid ship and can quite easily continue to follow it on the net if they so wish. I very much doubt people staged such a dramatic shooting spree just to change the main subject on the MSM....

Yellow Teapot,

You sound like someone who has observed Mossad and is aware of the elaborate techniques they employ

Typical example is Anna Lindh. Mossad are proactive and strike preemptively, the Anna Lindh assassination is a classic example of a preemptive assassination, as if they had left her another few years she would have caused Israel problems www.thetruthseeker.co.uk...

Solomon,

People who come to this forum will read about what they want to, but there are a lot of people who only get their news from MSM. TV, Newspapers, then there are those who can access the Internet but will only go to MS news sites.

The very fact that for the last week the news here in the UK has basicaly been how the oil spill is going to kill everyone and very recently Israel doing a spot of piracy has basicaly been the only news.

You can understand how various elements within the media would basicaly be praying for something so front page newsworthy to happen as to take attention away from probably the worst enviromental disasters since Chernobyl and Israel murdering people on the high seas.

And here we are, a random shooting, right at the exact moment the media were praying for such a headline.

I personaly think its pretty suspect on account of it being such a coincidence, although the news is generaly bleak, its always varied. But there is no real evidence for why this shooting happend, so meh. Type Dunblane school shooting into google and see the crazy horror of that and then reference the date to anything you might think was being surpressd. You could be onto something, are random shootings lone madmen or is there a direct relation to govermental actions getting buried in this press?

How about you generally go get your nose to sniff out some source of validation for your outrageous claims? Proof, source, anything goes other than wild guessing.

Basically ANYTHING that would've changed the flotilla deal away from the headlines, would've later on be accused by you as a Mossad action in order to change the news, be it a meteor hit, nuclear explosion or alien message from Saturn. It would all be the evil Mossad's fault.

That is by your silly logic, ofcourse.

TPTB in UK simply do not feature news if they don't want to, its a simple as that.

people in the Uk mainly get their news from the internet, so I'm sure there woudl be an outcry especially to the BBC if they were not reporting news events at the expense of every person in the UK who has to pay a fee for the priviadge.

Things - as they stand- definitely do not add up.

What luck for Israel that 12 (yes TWELVE) people just happen to get shot dead along with another 30 injured, by some nutjob (or was it Mossad nutjobs?) in an area of England where all you normally find are sheep sh****ng in a field.

Star and a flag to you.

Watch this space.............


It is definately a conspiracy look: 12 dead + 30 injured = 42. Now if you reverse the numer of dead you get 21. If you multiply that by 42 you get 882. If we now add the thirty injured we get 912. Minus the one gunman and what do we get? 911! Clear proof that the same Israeli's that blew up the twin towers, are behind this taxi driver massacre. Deny ignorance!

Here is what doesn't add up:

--Police are on the scene of the first shooting immediately yet the gunman manages to roam free for 3 1/2 hours shooting 40 more people?

--Shooter described firing a "James Bond" -type sniper rifle with a large scope-where did he get this weapon? Doesn't sound like a .22.

--Shooter's body is found miles from the place he abandoned his car?

--No motive.

I for one am sick of all this Israel Bashing hysteria, whilst the OP is keeping us thinking I guess, there has to be a line drawn .
Demonising Israel is hardly intelligent or rational.
The perpertrator wasnt a jew was he?
The victims werent flotilla activist relatives were they?
So lets lay off israel and respect them.
As we respect other nations , Britain has sinned, so has the USA and every other nation, so we should recognise that Israel is not perfect but neither is it the worst.
That award would probably belong to Wales for its general absurdness?

To answer your points:

1) Cumbria is a rural area, criss crossed with small country lanes. The first police on the scene where from the local nick, but by the time they had arrived the gunman had already made off in his vehicle. As such, figuring out where he went would be a bit difficult.

2) Large calibre hunting rifles are legal in the UK providing you have a firearms certificate. Also, eye witnesses who have never seen a firearm up close will identify it from what they have seen on TV. So to the untrained eye, even a .22LR rifle fitted with a small scope would look like a "James Bond type sniper rifle".

3) The shooter could have easily walked the distance from the car. having said that, he could have just shot himself in the car and saved him the bother of the walk. Maybe he wanted people to have to search for him?

4) No motive as of yet, and we'll probably never get to know if there is one. Sometimes people just flip out for no reason.

As for the shootings being connected to mossad? Not a chance. To knock the latest Israeli issue off of the news networks they'd have to blow up a large part of London. A taxi driver going postal isn't going to do it.

Some dude wakes up and decides he feels so sorry for the negative flak Israel is suffering over the flotilla incident and people must be punished to take the heat of the rogue state.

He devises a plan to shoot innocent people and then do a number on himself, so gets in his taxi and shoots people around three towns (I think it was three?)


That is the most preposterous theory I have seen in awhile. It is is not even funny...I do not think anyone is laughing.


You can not be serious mate

It has just been broadcast on afternoon news in Sydney that the man was

caught up in a bitter family feud over a Will. Not that I believe everything I see

or hear on TV but you have to admit that is a more credible reason to kill and

then get the story on the front page.

Coupled with the fact that there are multiple victims...not just one or two

Mr Bird’s car was abandoned at Cockley Beck farm...
The BBC reports Mr Bird switched cars from his Citroen Picasso to a black Vauxhall Astra before abandoning the second car and proceeding on foot.

Also, early reports say the suspect was in his 30s with a shaved head.


Two guns, two vehicles, two descriptions of the perps....

Uh, two gunmen?

This thread is sick
I'm disgusted that it's even been allowed.

Innocent people have been murdered and all folk can do is invent preposterous make believe nonsense like this? Shame on you


But maybe you're all Mossad shills? That would make more sense .......

Ahhh, the synchronicity:

news.bbc.co.uk...
An episode of Coronation Street due to be aired on Wednesday was replaced by a repeat of Harry Hill's TV Burp in the wake of the Cumbrian shootings.
The soap had been due to feature a siege involving guns, resulting in two characters dying...
ITV said the move was taken in light of the "tragic events in Cumbria", where a gunman shot 12 people dead.  ...
Preview information released last week revealed that Gordon, who is played by Gray O'Brien, would be seen exacting his revenge on those he believes have wronged him.

If you cared to read what some of us posted, you would not include us as being a Mossad shills, thank you.

I think the OPs theory is also ridiculous and sick.


Do not tar all of us with the same brush

The shaven-headed description is interesting but it could be easily explained. Derrick Bird could have shaved his head since the photos in the press were taken, or the witness was mistaken. I imagine it is hard to get a good look at someone who might be speeding away in a car or if you are trying to hide yourself from them.

I think it's a huge stretch to say this was planned or orchestrated to distract from Israel. There are witnesses who saw Bird shooting people and he had a number of motives.

Apparently he had been suffering anxiety after being beaten unconcious at work, other drivers were stealing his fares, his mother had cancer and he was involved in a feud over a will with his family.

I think this guy was probably mentally unstable for a while and he finally flipped, nothing more.

Hahahahahahah, great post. Pure comedy gold.

Sad thing is that some "truth seekers" will look into it as serious evidence without catching the sarcasm and go "GREAT FIND BROTHER!!11!11!".

This is a stupid idea.

I suppose Israel was manufactured to get the Korea crisis off the news?

Mind you I do think the Israel crisis is fake. 5 ships of genuine protesters, and the 6th with terrorists who did a false flag incident. The footage was filmed prior to the incident.
