So as I posted earlier (Yesterday) the world is condemning Israels actions against the flotilla of humanitarian aid headed to Gaza from Turkey.
There are a couple of things the Israeli’s are guilty of.
1. They got set up. They allowed this to escalate and they allowed the media to twist the facts. Israel was right in what they did, however; they didn’t predict the stunt that was set up from the beginning. The idiots on the ship were doing this JUST TO GET MEDIA ATTENTION and they got it.
2. They are allowing the media to twist and spin this into a illegal act on the high seas. And they continue to fight the accusations with facts about the attack. The best thing Israel can do is to not fuel the fire. They should release a statement and all the video’s with a quick FU to any that can’t see the incident for what it was. An attempt to run a MILITARY blockade after clear warning and a clear alternative presented.
Other than that I say Israel was totally justified and if I might say a little stupid in waiting so long to resort to deadly force. The first man on the boat was pummeled with a pipe and thrown off the ship. That is attempted murder at best and justified all force used at that point.
For you morons that continuously bash Israel for defending herself. I ask you to at least be somewhat fair in your criticism. You idiots seem to lay all the worlds ills at Israel’s but ask yourself this one question: IF the “Poor and Oppressed” people in Gaza had humanitarian aid brought in from folks n Saudi Arabia, or if the country’s of Iran, UAE or some of the other MUSLIM nations offered jobs for the people in Gaza instead of running around in lavish cars and floating cities blaming Israel for their troubles… How long do you think this problem would persist? An employed man has worth. An employed family man is a happy man. A man that has nothing and is offered cash to hate will hate. So the real issue is not Israel its the rest of the muslim nations using them as pawns for their hatred.
I really hope Obama doesn’t do what I know he’s going to do. He’ll say this should be a wake up call to the problems in the region and that we all need to talk about the real issues yada yada yada….
What I do know is this: IF Obama and Mr Benjamin Netanyahu were to switch countries RIGHT NOW. America would be better off and Israel would be gone in 6 months. That’s a fact.
