Israel is still holding three Israeli Arabs who were detained on the flotilla.
Three other leaders of Israel’s large Palestinian Arab minority, including Sheikh Raed Salah, a spiritual leader, were arrested as their ships docked in the southern port of Ashdod. Lawyers said that under Israeli law they could be held and questioned for up to 30 days without being charged.
And all the while, while Israel punishes the freely elected Hamas, and all the one and half million Gazans. Israel builds up enemies all around the world, all for the price of punishing the Arabs.
And it is going to continue…
Israelis celebrating / supporting the army’s actions against the flotilla, at Ben Gurion University today:
Interesting to see this headline in the Israeli press. It sounds credible rather than disinfo. Jewish rule is so absolute, so full of secrets, and so often loathsome of the truth, even jews and Goyim have to hold the “official line”.
And the poor Palestinians, God knows what deviousness took place to get them to collaborate, lots of stories appearing that to get medical attention in Israel, that the price is collaboration.
How long before we read the headline: UK Conservatives (or US Democrats) offer amnesty to “Israel collaborators”.
Hamas offers amnesty to ‘Israel collaborators’
Government in Gaza says two-month amnesty period meant to ensure that ‘all those who betrayed their people and homeland get on the right track.’ Interior ministry: We know the malignant tricks Israel uses to blackmail collaborators and trick them

After executing two Gaza residents last month, the Hamas government on Sunday announced a period of amnesty for Palestinians “who have collaborated with Israeli security forces” during which they can turn themselves in exchange for a pardon.
It remains unclear whether the “collaborators” will be granted a full pardon or relatively light sentences.
The amnesty period will last from May 8 – July 10 and is meant to “protect the Palestinian people,” Hamas Interior Ministry spokesman Ihab Al-Ghussein said.

IAF strike in Sudan hit Gaza-bound arms convoy
The Israel Air Force carried out an attack last January against a convoy of trucks in Sudan carrying arms for Hamas in the Gaza Strip, according to the American network CBS.
According to the report, 39 people riding in 17 trucks were killed, while civilians in the area suffered injuries. Haaretz
It proves the arrogance of Israel, unilateral actions which can be witnessed from top to bottom, by the state and by Israeli individuals. But lets ask about the logistics? Can Israel stop Hamas rearming by taking out supplies wherever it sees them? Unlikely, given the 100’s of millions of people that would like to see Hamas rearmed, just as the diaspora covertly armed the early Zionists. If this attack took place during the Gaza conflict then perhaps it is not quite so arrogant. But as always there was ‘collateral’ damage. Collateral means murder of civilians.
In cities the world over Drug dealers are monitored rather than busted for fear of driving them further underground.
Why bomb in Sudan and not in Egypt, because Egypt is a (paid) ally and Sudan is not. And Egypt has made it clear it is impossible for it to stop the arms smuggling.
The Haaretz article goes on to mention:
According to Martin, Israel and the U.S. had signed an agreement for closer international efforts to block smuggling of arms into the Gaza Strip.
Well from a post on this blog (Hamas rearmed during conflict) at the time of the US Israeli agreement, no states through which the arms would travel (especially Turkey and Egypt) signed up to the agreement:
And Egypt is steadfastly refusing to overtly fight the smuggling tunnels, presumably because of local support and possible resistance infiltration/influence in his regime.
Egypt “is absolutely not bound by this agreement,” on halting arms smuggling through tunnels under the Egypt-Gaza border, Abul Gheit [Egyptian Foreign Minister]told reporters. AlManar
From the Israeli Ynet:
Don’t count on Egypt
Nature of Egyptian regime won’t allow it to curb arms smuggling to Gaza
Just as Israel / Zionists have had to align themselves with all manner of unsavory souls to further their interests, now it seems they have to allow Egypt to allow smuggling into Gaza. Is it all *ucked up or what?

CAIRO (Reuters) – Egypt warned European countries on Tuesday to think carefully before sending ships to patrol Gaza’s coastal waters to prevent arms smuggling, saying such a move could have significant consequences on ties with Arab states.
The warning by Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit came after British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Britain, France and Germany had offered to send warships to monitor and prevent arms smuggling to Gaza and to help consolidate a shaky ceasefire. –Reuters–
To state the obvious: solve the problem not the symptom. The conditions of the Palstinians in Gaza.
Europe has been roped in:

Nine NATO allies have pledged to stop arms smuggling to Gaza. United States,Canada and seven European states including Britain, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy,the Netherlands and Norway have signed a “program of action.” According to a representative of the group,the nine NATO allies have designed an agreement billed as part of an international attempt, allegedly to stabilize a Israeli-Palestinian ceasefire in Gaza.Hamas movement which is now the ruling authority in Gaza shun the nine NATO members campaign claiming that it has the right to defend it self and the Palestinian people 0f Gaza. –more–
One wonders what efforts intelligence agencies have made to infiltrate the arms smuggling rings? That means participating in the smuggling. Starting to resemble the alleged involvement of intelligence agencies in drug smuggling. When the Jewish people wake up to being used as a tool themselves then we might see peace.
Snippets from Uri Avnery’s latest weekly post:
Not only did Barak destroy the “Zionist Left”, but he also dealt a shattering blow to Fatah, the movement that had promised the Palestinians peace with Israel. Not content with that, Barak allowed Ariel Sharon to carry out his provocative visit to the Temple Mount, accompanied by hundreds of soldiers and policemen. Thus he triggered the outbreak of the 2nd intifada and prepared the ground for Sharon to come to power.
When Sharon was elected Prime Minister at the beginning of 2001, he was determined to destroy Arafat and Fatah. He blockaded Arafat in the Ramallah Mukataa and demolished the Fatah infrastructure throughout the occupied territories. When Arafat was murdered (one can guess by whom) Mahmoud Abbas was elected to fill his place.[…]
The Israeli government – and its satellites in Washington DC – were not content with that. They tried to establish Muhammad Dahlan, a man considered by many Palestinians as an agent of Israel and the US, as the strong-man of the Gaza Strip. To preempt this move, Hamas assumed direct power in the Strip, turning it into “Hamastan”. Thus Abbas lost all power over almost half of the Palestinians in the occupied territories.
This would probably have been impossible if Israel had not completely cut off the Gaza Strip from the West Bank, in violation of the agreements it had signed. In Oslo it was declared that the West Bank and the Strip constitute one single entity, and that they would be connected by safe passages. In practice, not a single passage was opened, not for a single day. Those who claim that Israel has served the Strip to Hamas on a platter do not exaggerate. […]
MANY PEOPLE around the world believe in the anti-Semitic myth that we Jews are immensely clever and that all our actions prove our diabolical cunning. Therefore, the ascent of Hamas must be the result of a shrewd Zionist conspiracy. The existence of Abbas (and Arafat before him) hinders the Jews from taking hold of the whole country, because the world demands a compromise with the “moderate” Palestinian leadership. But the world accepts that there can be no compromise with the murderous Hamas, and therefore the clever Jews are interested in a Hamas victory. […]
I propose a compromise between the two perceptions: Israeli policy is indeed foolish, but there is method in this foolishness. It can go on only because it conforms with a deep-seated desire, which most people are not conscious of or do not want to admit: to hold on to all of Eretz Israel and not to allow a Palestinian state to come into being.
If we want to change this, we must drag the unconscious motivation up to the level of consciousness: what do we want? Peace or more territory? Co-existence between two states or occupation and eternal war?
It is too late to turn the wheel back. Hamas is now a part of reality. It is in the Israeli interest that a Palestinian unity government be set up, a government with which we can reach an agreement that will be kept. If we have already played such a pivotal role in turning Hamas into a central Palestinian power, by all means let’s talk with them!
This way we can also free Gilad Shalit in a prisoner exchange – before his 1000th day in captivity.
