Watch out your ignorance is showing.

1. Unlike the US, those who were executed went through the Iranian justice system. The US still haven't even sent those locked up in Getmo to see justice.

2. Gays don't get hanged because they are gay, you've been watching too many propaganda videos and website.

So please deny ignorance.

Well the US gave Sadam weapons as well. Remember that? It sucks having your future bet on a government by the people. If the peoples opinion of Israel is swayed, then Israel will fall. Remember that!

That said no one wants to see that. We do want to see the Palestinians treated better than dogs however.

They done this for numerous years, I say let them have it out. START SHOOTING BOYS. Get it over with so peace rules the land over there.

Just like Turkey, its all talk or political posturing....

I think all the governments concerned, are aware that if they do carry out these actions then they know what is coming to them if a shooting war starts with Israel, they will be on the receiving end with no support from their allies and the world powers, because it would show Israel would have every right to declare war against any hostile action against it.
And this would open the door for the US to intervene against Iran,why, read on :

People either forget or are unaware that The Oslo Agreements etc, gave Israel the control of the external borders of Gaza and West Bank,so therefore Israel has every right to control Gaza's airspace and the territorial waters, just as it has since it occupied the Gaza Strip in 1967

And for all the hoopla surrounding the aid flotillas, blockade etc, please read one of the many articles published on that, i think this one is a good summary:

Legal assessments of the Gaza flotilla raid

Let them all fall over there so that a peoples way of life is not run by thugs and slavery of peoples. It is time to take the veil off of all over there. I was over there, it sickened me. The poor live in dirt mounds of clay and the rich in granite castles with guards outside patroling with weapons.

I hope IRAN does escort ships. I hope ISREAL escorts ships. They will not get along. sooner or later, it will escalate into an all out war. NOONE CAN STOP THAT. I want them all unveiled, to see thugs as who they are. If i go into a bank wearing that around here, i would get a whole lot of cops on me. THUGS, thats all they are. THUGS.

I just read this right now and it's my first time hearing it.

My heart SUNK just hearing it. Gasoline and Fire do NOT MIX WELL.

I REALLY do not want Iran and Israel mixing it up in the same waters. These two need to be separated. All the world needs is for one of them to do something stupid (leaning towards Israel personally do make the first stupid move).

I feel sick just thinking about the scenarios.

You see, this is the problem. How can you not see the inevitable
outcome if Israel continues along it's current path?
No threat. No promise. Just a 100% unavoidable conclusion.

Then tell Palistians to stop strapping explosives to their children
and sending them into Isreal to make a point.

The truth is Blood is on everyone's hands........

I pray your God and my God doesn't find us all unworthy
and turns his face from all!

I would take bets at ten to one that irans boats never get through the suez....
theyd make some pretty fine targets for the Iraeli air force.
We all know what they did to the USS Liberty, with far less provocation......

That would affect America if an all out war starts with Iran, American interests would be reduced to null in that region, oil prices would sky rocket, American proxy states would all rise up against the dictators etc.

America has too much to loose, it is just trying to manage during this economic hardship, after that it will continue its aggression.

I'd love to see Israel kick Iran's ass. That's certainly what would happen if Iran decided to provoke Israel.Could be the beginning of the Gog-Magog war.

Sure and when the Palestine mandate was laid out Jews were being slaughtered by Arabs etc. It’s just that it has turned from self defense into something far more sinister. If you saw a very one sided fight were a 6 ft tall guy was being beet down a midget with a ball bat. Who would you want to stand up for? If the tables were turned etc etc.

I agree that Israel against Gaze is like a pellet gun against a RPG, but this is not a college basketball game where you cheer for the small guy. Israel is one nuke away from annihilation, and one war from total collapse. Do you think if Israel lost any of its wars it would exist today? Would those countries that attacked it just give it back as Israel has done a number of times? Has Israel won a war and continued to escalate it to take over another country?

So just what is the issue here? Two countries that fought against Israel, Egypt and Jordan, have no issues with them anymore since they have overcome their differences. So here are two extremely good examples of what life next to the Jews is like when you do not threaten them.

What a concept isn’t it? Don’t threaten them and they have no issues with you.

So with Gaza we have some very ignorant people who with their pellet gun want to continually threaten the Jews and one needs to ask why? They had many opportunities to move towards a more friendly nonviolent way, but the violent sects get funding from nations who still want to see Israel disappear. The problem is these people are too stupid to realize they are only being played by these so called friends and until that stops and the people there decide to change friends and warlike lifestyle things will not change, but hey they can continue to blame the Jews.

The problem is they are aggressive and pesky with their rockets and small arms, but what if they get serious weapons? That is the fear that Israel faces…bigger heavier weapons that start to kill indiscriminately large numbers of people in Israel. Gaza is contained right now but it would not take much for them to have the power to do serious harm.

Well it is not like they have money to buy weapons, much less anything else, so just where do these 10,000s of small rockets come from? I think countries like Syria and Iraq would give their left nut to get some really heavy weaponry into Gaza and would care little about the repercussions Israel would inflict in retaliation.

Too bad you couldn't move a Palestinian between each house in Israel. Wonder how far this land is your land this land is our land would go?

Israel is so in the wrong keeping the Palestinians locked in and caged like animals. To me, that's the main problem.

Why did they have to go and keep building on the west bank too? Am I supposed to keep thinking they are a great ally and friend when they keep hurting a people they've displaced like this?

That's my thoughts too. They are brilliant at politics.

I hope no one takes up this offer, because if they do, we will have the Israeli and Iranian navies at a standoff. And I can't see any of them backing down.

Interesting dilemma for Israel: created Hamas, now wanting Hamas defeated internally by occupants of Gaza. The US will defuse the situation.

It's a proven formula: create a problem, provide a solution, encounter unforseen problem, ignore it, try to fix it, fail, leave, start process over.

Oh, I forgot to add the number one goal: kill as many people in the process as possible.

I doubt Egypt will allow Iranian vessels through the Canal.. so that leaves the long way round, it also puts Turkey in a bind... as if they do not offer a serious alternative now, perhaps the Iranian offer could be accepted. either way, things are stacking up...

Don't forget the Saudis! After that stunt the Iranians pulled at Makkah a few years ago, I'm sure the Saudis would view Iranian warships in the Red Sea with, umm... some trepidation.

Wasn't it just last week that Iran offered to help the U.S with the daunting task of cleaning up the oil spill in the Gulf ?

Now this week they offer there Navy to help ships enter into Gaza ?

Don't they seem the helpful bunch

Going by PressTV.. 2 aid ships and 1 navy* hospital ship are about to set sail for Gaza from Iran.. with aid being supplied to Gaza via the Rafah crossing.

I presume we now have a setup that means that Iran's Red Crescent can request support from the IRGC for an excort..

Things are hotting up as these ships are meant to be in position by the end of the week.
