So Israel got caught out

leave a comment »

Millions or Billions sit and watch TV and are disgusted. Every move the country makes is a disaster. The people on the ship fighting with metal bars was a forged video, it was not the Mavi. The Mavi had a sister ship which was recently sold. Maybe that footage came from Israeli commandos training for their assault on the Mavi.

.

The release of falsified propoganda was not so much a measure of panic, it was business as usual, an inbuilt arrogance for people who hold everyone in contempt….

.

The Israeli press is virtually silent about it all. And as for talk of the White House having had to give a nod for the Israeli assault, that is a joke, the White House does what Jerusalem tells it to do.

.

The footage is there of an American being assassinated by Israelis. And Obama has said nothing of any substance.

.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

.

So a few thousand people around the world demonstrated. That is not going to become millions demonstrating about Israeli atrocities. Millions will be demonstrating as our economies fold with Greek like suddenness. And it is the Zionist inspired genocidal wars that have bankrupted us.

.

Getting the Israelis to turn around and accept their entire fallacious existence is most unlikely, maybe other countries could do something, but not the world’s people. Our media and Banks continue to be governed by Zionists, they have a few agendas: religion as opium seems one of them, Gay rights are sacrosanct, and alcohol, crime and speculation are more.

Oh yes, and there are still 15 people missing, unaccounted for…

All because of the misuse of religion. Etymologically religious means – reuniting – reuniting with the divine.

Religion comes from the two words re and ligare. Re is a prefix meaning “return,” and ligare means “to bind;”

Iranian aid ships to set sail for Gaza
Mon, 07 Jun 2010 06:20:58 GMT

Two Iranian aid ships carrying humanitarian relief and medical supplies for the people of Gaza will set sail for the coastal sliver in the upcoming days.

Iran’s Red Crescent announced Monday that the cargo will include food, medicine and appliances and it will be accompanied by a group of Iranian doctors and relief workers.

“The aid consists of food and medical supplies, which will be transported into Gaza via the Rafah border in Egypt before the week is through,” the country’s Red Crescent Director Abdolraoof Adibzadeh said.

The Rafah border crossing is the only escape route from Gaza that does not lead to Israel.

Why does the article mention Rafah? Are the ships to be used by way of Egypt?

Report: Two Iranian ships to sail to Gaza

The Iranian Red Crescent decided to send the vessels, which will carry food, medications, and medical equipment, following a meeting with the foreign ministry.

Iranian aid ships are due to set sail to Gaza by the end of the week, according to a report in the Sunday Times.

Perhaps Iran feels duty bound to support its growing alliance with Turkey, perhaps Iran senses Israel’s weakness, and Israel’s inability to have anything like a coherent plan. Israel is after all, only geared up for “punishhment” as policy.

.

There are also reports that Lebanon is planning to send ships within a couple of weeks.

The Flotilla’s people power that changed the world

leave a comment »

With all the atrocities committed in our name, wouldn’t it be nice to see Bush, Blair, Cheney, Wolfowitz all in the dock? And Obama and Rahm and all the cohorts causing evil killing and torture to millions?

.

Strangely enough it might just start in Israel. And even stranger, if the leadership is indicted, there is no opposition to replace Bibi, Ehud Barak and Lieberman. There is just more of the same.

.

Haaretz is leading with a grim-faced PM Bibi refusing calls for an international enquiry.

.

.

And some seemingly conscientious objections by Israeli Naval officers themselves:

.

Israel Navy reserves officers: Allow external Gaza flotilla probe

Officers denounce operation as ‘military and diplomatic failure’, slam government for placing blame on the activists.

“First and foremost, we protest the fact that responsibility for the tragic results was immediately thrust onto the organizers of the flotilla,” wrote the officers. “This demonstrates contempt for the responsibility that belongs principally to the hierarchy of commanders and those who approved the mission. This shows contempt for the values of professionalism, the purity of weapons and for human lives.”

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-defense/israel-navy-reserves-officers-allow-external-gaza-flotilla-probe-1.294536

..

We are all so used to the spin and dribble, the contempt for the truth, just as we see it in our nations, so it is occurring in Israel. As above – so below. From non-existent weapons of mass destruction, to Al Qaeda cells everywhere. The Israelis are more cushioned thanks to all the money pouring in there. Making their population astoundingly right-wing. Yet it seems, crunch time has arrived.

.

Breaking out of the siege

If Israel is to break out of the international siege and strategic catastrophe it now faces, it urgently needs a different policy.

.
.
We don’t know what goes on diplomatically and quietly behind the scenes. But it seems political earthquakes vis-a-vis Israel are afoot. It is not the Israeli population that wants change. They mostly wish to continue the slaughter against the Palestinians, and anyone who dares identify with an underdog.
.

Israel has no opposition and no alternative

While Zuabi was savagely attacked in the Knesset – Livni kept mum. When the blockade continued – Livni kept mum. After Israel brutally abducted the flotilla ship – Livni skipped from one television studio to another, justifying the operation with frightening alacrity.

By Gideon Levy

.
If there is a revolt taking place in Zionism, in Israel or in world Jewry, it certainly is not coming from the Israeli man on the street. What a lesson to learn: Lieberman, Bibi and Ehud Barak made Israel very weak indeed. There was also historical forces at work, Israel became “an accident waiting to happen”. The truth was always an inconvenience and an enemy. Now what is to be done with millions of people bred to ride roughshod over all of humanity? They are very dangerous… Reared on persecuting hapless Palestinians, and promoted to a duplicitous business of False Flags, security and funding terror.
.
.
On reflection, we are looking at institutionalised war crimes. But now it will not be a case of “shooting the messenger”. Turkish papers are even suggesting Israel instigated an attack on one of their naval bases:
.

Suspicion growing about possible link between PKK and Israel

Amid the growing outrage over an Israeli attack on civilian ships in international waters that killed nine Turkish pro-Palestinian activists and wounded dozens last week, there is deepening suspicion about the possible Israeli involvement in the killing of seven soldiers in a terrorist rocket attack on a naval base in İskenderun, in the southern province of Hatay.

Turkish intelligence organizations are looking into possible connections between the two incidents that occurred on the same day only hours apart.

http://www.todayszaman.com/tz-web/news-212267-suspicion-growing-about-possible-link-between-pkk-and-israel.html

.

There is more at stake than Israel or Zionism, there is world Jewry, banking and oil. For now we can all marvel at “people power”, and how the sheer indignation of people everywhere has had greater effect than any politicians or media.
