They Are Sick All Right.. Sick In The Head.
More Flotillas are coming and once again they are packed with martyrs. This time in order to extract maximum propaganda punch and feed eager progressives their requisite dose of Israel hating outrage, Islam is now packing secret weapons..
Samar Alhaj, the woman leading the Hizbullah-linked Lebanese boat that is scheduled to try to block the naval blockade on Gaza, said in an interview with a regional Israeli Arabic- language radio station in Nazareth that women were “the new secret weapon” in use against the “thieving enemy.”
Asked on Radio A-Shams by Zohair Bahloul why the ship, Mariam, would only be carrying women, she said, “We are women in order not to give the thieving enemy an excuse to use arms against the ship.” She said the ship would be carrying cancer medication for children, and women suffering from breast cancer and cancer of the uterus due to “chemical bombs” dropped on Gaza by Israel.
Alhaj is the wife of an officer in the Lebanese security service who was jailed for four years for alleged involvement in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. Alhaj and her husband met with Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah on May 22.
In other words another ‘peace’ flotilla, powered by the new Islamic Feminism!
The levels radical Islam and its western sympathizers & enablers will now go to in order to de-legitimize the Jewish State have reached cataclysmic new lows. Encouraged by a planet that reflexively condemns Israel, radical Islam is now serving up cancer stricken women readied for martyrdom - All in order to feed the insatiable need of anti-semites everywhere for more pure unadulterated Jew hatred.
It’s like a Pay Per View horror show of depravity. Hezbollah, which actively preaches martyrdom is sending its own sickened & blindly following Allah women out to goad Israel to violence against them for the cameras. As a cherry on top for their narrative from hell, they are armed with heart string pulling cancer medicines for ‘children’, which should prove to make an excellent by-line in news stories everywhere trashing us when we are forced to act – By maintaining our legal blockade against an entity with whom we are in fact at war.
Lest you for a moment be a European sucker..
Or perchance believe this is actually about Gaza, the organizers make clear exactly what the real mission is..
Meanwhile, Yasser Kashlak, a Syrian businessman of Palestinian descent who heads the “Free Palestine Organization” and is funding this boat, as well as another that is to carry journalists and parliamentarians, said over the weekend on Hizbullah’s al-Manar television station that he was more and more optimistic that one day these same boats would take “Europe’s refuse [the Jews] that came to my homeland back to their homelands.
“Gilad Schalit should go back to Paris and those murderers go back to Poland, and after that we will chase them until the ends of the earth to bring them to justice for their acts of slaughter from Deir Yassin until today.” Kashlak, a fervent Hizbullah supporter, called Israel a “rabid dog sent to the region to frighten the Arabs.
He said he had a message for Israelis: ‘Get on the ships we are sending you and go back to your lands. Don’t let the moderate Arab leaders delude you, [you] cannot make peace with us. Our children will return to Palestine, you have no reason for coexistence. Even if our leaders will sign a peace agreement, we will not sign.’” He said the boat carrying journalists and parliamentarians will carry 12 former American diplomats as well..
The destruction of Jews, the destruction of Israel, the de-legitimization of our very existence is the goal. No one could care less about humanitarian aid to Gaza, in fact if everyone in Gaza died de-legitimizing the filthy Joooz that would be fantastic!! Just a bit more propaganda grist for Allah’s sick mill.
In order to garner legendary hate ratings Allah’s servants in radical Islam are now serving up their own women, complete with cancer and every other manner of propaganda for an eager audience. How can we combat this when so called ‘normal people’, nihilists everywhere are not only not repulsed, but are actively supporting this depravity under the guise of being humanitarians?
Leader of the Free World – President Obama.
How can Israel a tiny country which stands almost alone in a sea of billions combat this, when the President of the United States of America – The leader of the free world himself cannot even show enough fortitude to stand up and say his own country is at war with this depravity & radical Islam, its chief breeding ground? When by his own order the words Jihad, radical Islam, and Terror are to be stricken from the lexicon..
Do you know what term then replaces these words in such a vacuum of moral leadership & fortitude? The word Humanitarians.
UPDATE: Hezbollah interprets our moral outrage & conundrum over this depravity as ‘more weakness’
‘The Zionists fear boat carrying women who want to deliver aid to Gaza, so how will they be able to face rockets in next war?’
Not only that, but to wipe the taint of Hezbollah from all this the ship is purporting itself to be a Christian Mission! Including praying at shrines of the Virgin Mary. Taqiyya at its best. Black is white, up is down. It’s a brave new nihilist world.
More from the memeorandum.
Youtube Eyeblast Revolution
Our enemies are liars & propagandists. In Israel we face the contemptible yet all too vogue wave of moral equivalence that is sweeping the Liberal world. The Jew and Israel is judged by a twisted double standard – While the hate monger, the gay beater, the Islamofacist who denies nearly every freedom imaginable is cheered and admired from afar, granted almost heroic status. The challenge to confront this is immense.
The world delights at condemning Israel.
The nations of the world literally line up, they get in line and wait one after the other to condemn Israel at every opportunity. Truth is irrelevant, we saw this at Jenin, we saw it when shells hit a beach in Gaza, we saw it when Hezbollah organized propaganda for eager willing media in Lebanon during 2006 hostilities. We saw it with Mohamed Al Dura – Lies beget more lies and the media perpetuates a narrative written by peoples, groups & organizations that are not only in theory supposedly outcast by humanity, but literally illegal! The word of the terrorist carries more weight in this twisted landscape than the word of a free, democratic, lawful state like Israel.
It seems as if whatever propaganda our foes engineer is celebrated in an orgy of media & editorials, backed up by instantaneous international condemnation. Mind boggling, the only explanation is hatred. Can we fight back? Not conventionally. Our guilt is pre-determined irrespective if we were even at the scene of the crime. If the truth finally emerges, the lies or slander is never retracted. Fighting against this wave seems insurmountable.
We can chip away
We have to be quicker, more clever, and just as devious. Our own Propaganda can as exhibited below accomplish that task, because it carries with it something our enemies propaganda lacks, a core of truth. The Latma spoof: We Con the World in 4 days has well over 1 million views, and that is just at the original upload spot at YouTube.
The IDF video (graphic) showing the brutal beating of our soldiers by ‘peace activists’, was the top video at youtube for a few days running. Garnering nearly 2 million views and that is without the airing in international media. Sadly the long delay getting it to that air, cost us dearly in Israel. Lesson learned.
We may not be able to out lie our opponents.
It is not in our nature, but we can outsmart them. We can outflank them. If anything the latma spoof has proved we must not only be on offense militarily to protect the State, we must do so in the PR realm as well. We are just as passionate, and just as dedicated as our foes and our cause is eternally more just. There is no reason to be losing this battle for PR supremacy. The world may delight at condemning us, but the spoof should prove to one and all that we should delight at condemning them too.
The Truth will not set us free, broadcasting it out in a clever nimble way however just might.
UPDATE: Youtube responding to anti-Israel pressure from WarnerBros music pulled the We Con the World video after 3 million+ views due to what they claim is “copyright infringement”. Of course we all know in the blogging world that parody clearly falls under copyright fair use clauses.
Turks Cashing Into Global Jihad At Our Expense
While the propaganda war rages internationally, here at home we all know what is up or down. Even before the raid occurred and our young men were nearly lynched alive by Islamic Jihad savages, FM Lieberman was calling this just another effort at delegitimizing our state’s very being. The questions should be where is the enemy and how do we neutralize him?
Time to pin the tail on the Donk.. er Turkey.
This Gaza blockade run was financed in Turkey & supported by Erdogan himself. The implicit intention was to smear and propagandize against the State of Israel while simultaneously elevating the Islamist status of Turkey. Merely the latest, but perhaps most egregious act in a long line by the Turks trying to inflate Turkey into a regional Islamic power at Israel’s expense.
TURKEY, THE AKP (Justice and Development Party) and Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan are new players in this drama. In its second term the AKP, the self-styled “conservative” Islamist party, has retreated significantly from its “moderate” image and accelerated its internal anti-secularism agenda.
One of the signs of this Islamization process has been the manifest anti-Israeli policy of the Erdogan government. It began with an official visit of the Hamas leadership in Turkey in February 2006, continued with Erdogan’s attack on President Shimon Peres at the 2009 Davos Conference, the downgrading of military cooperation between the two allied countries and a continuous diplomatic crisis. [...]
We have for some reason allowed the level of outright Islamic nonsense emanating from the Turks to reach stratospheric levels..
Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu lashed out Tuesday at Israel’s attack on a Gaza aid flotilla and by extension the Obama administration’s reluctance to immediately condemn the assault that left at least nine civilians dead.
“Psychologically, this attack is like 9/11 for Turkey,” Davutoglu told reporters over breakfast in Washington before going to the State Department to meet with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. He referred to the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, in which al-Qaeda hijackers used commandeered U.S. airliners to kill nearly 3,000 people.
Beyond the insulting absurdity of that statement the Turks come out looking more like 9/11 truthers than anything else when some sanity is applied here, seeing as they were the ones who actually orchestrated this entire propaganda effort in the 1st place. The fact that this effort was pieced together by actual terrorists while they innocently shout from the victim-hood mountain tops, only makes the Turkish protestations all the more obscene.
The Turkish organizers of the Gaza Strip-bound flotilla that was boarded this morning by Israeli commandos knew well in advance that their vessels would never reach Israeli waters. That’s because the organizers belong to a nonprofit that was banned by the Israeli government in July 2008 for its ties to terrorism finance.
The Turkish IHH (Islan Haklary Ve Hurriyetleri Vakfi in Turkish) was founded in 1992, and reportedly popped up on the CIA’s radar in 1996 for its radical Islamist leanings. Like many other Islamist charities, the IHH has a record of providing relief to areas where disaster has struck in the Muslim world.
However, the organization is not a force for good. The Turkish nonprofit belongs to a Saudi-based umbrella organization known to finance terrorism called the Union of Good (Ittilaf al-Kheir in Arabic). Notably, the Union is chaired by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, who is known best for his religious ruling that encourages suicide attacks against Israeli civilians. According to one report, Qardawi personally transferred millions of dollars to the Union in an effort to provide financial support to Hamas. [...]
Were we so pre-occupied with maintaining our once fruitful Turkish relations that we somehow overlooked all this? With the result being sending our boys armed with paintball guns into a Jihadist hornets nest? Not exactly a stellar planning or intelligence moment frankly.
Turks Playing with Fire
Meanwhile beyond instigating this whole affair, funding it, and driving the resulting PR bonanza the Turks have also pulled their ambassador, initiated the UN Security Council meeting condemning Israel, and now threaten to actually escort future similar convoys using the Turkish Navy!
Why not just declare war on us & be done with it? Some in the US are awakening to the threat, while we in Israel seemingly prefer to coddle it..
The most ominous aspect of the flotilla incident is Turkey’s involvement. The flotilla bound for Gaza, in violation of the blockade, was allowed to leave a Turkish port. The main sponsor was a Turkish charity known for ties to jihadist groups. The Turkish diplomatic and governmental apparatus sprung into action at the first sign of trouble — which of course there was, since the “peace activists” onboard the flotilla were masked and armed with lead pipes and knives.
Why is this troubling? Because Turkey is a member of NATO. It’s sought to join the European Union for years. For decades, it’s been a key military ally of the United States. Now it’s at the forefront of a global movement to delegitimize America’s ally Israel.
The main factor behind these developments is the rise of Recip Tayipp Erdogan’s AKP. Some years ago, Christopher Caldwell pointed out in our pages that as Turkey democratized, it would also become more Islamic. And that means certain elements, influential elements, of its government and society would become more Islamist. The trend that few have noticed is that these elements are pulling Turkey out of the Western alliance structure and toward the Middle East. The break began in 2003 when the Turks denied the U.S. Fourth Infantry the ability to invade Iraq from the north.
Since 2005, Americans have been worrying about Iran’s ambitions for regional hegemony. Maybe it’s time we started worrying about Turkey’s regional ambitions as well. [...]
What has been our reaction?
Did we pull our Turkish Ambassador as well? Did we assault Turkey verbally? Defend ourselves from the Turkish verbal assaults themselves? Cease arming the Turks with our high technology weapons? No. We are too busy treating the symptoms instead of curing the disease.
Ehud Barak our defense minister held sensitive conversations with senior Turkish officials, apparently his goal was not to vigorously defend Israel or put a stop to this sham, but to make sure that our multi-million dollar UAV sales to the Turks were still on. Sounds like a good deal, for the Turks that is. What are they holding over us? Naked pictures of Barak eating a shawarma!?
Meanwhile the Turks have canceled 3 joint military exercises with us, on top of the cancellation of another last year. Now they are also utilizing their position in NATO to call for another inquiry – This NATO one being beyond the UN games they have already played in the last 48 hours. Wonderful. They got the UN to chew us out, Europe is onboard, and now soon the Atlantic alliance itself will berrate us publicly.
10-0 Turkey. Israeli public less than amused
While our leaders stick their heads in the Turkish beach sand, the public is outraged..
Several protests condemning the violent attacks on Navy commandos by activists on board the Gaza flotilla and expressing support for the Navy were held at Israeli university campuses and highway intersections on Tuesday.
On Monday evening, around 500 protesters waving Israeli flags demonstrated outside of the Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv. Protesters chanted slogans in support of the IDF and held up signs which equated the Turkish government with Hamas.
Planning a Turkish vacation? Beyond the fact that the Israeli govt is advising you never leave your hotel, there is also the fact that you will probably be traveling alone..
Turkish tourist sites will have to make do with tourists from Europe this summer. Israeli workers will take their custom to Cyprus and Greece, if the intentions of workers’ committees are fulfilled.
Vaadim, a firm coordinating information about economic activity among workers’ committees in Israel, published a statement saying that after the wave of anti-Israel propaganda led by Turkey and Turkey’s rapprochement with Iran, together with its dominant role in the “Freedom Flotilla” to Gaza, workers’ committees have declared that workers will not go to Turkey for their vacations – “not even for free.” [...]
Lieberman & Ayalon Humbled?
A few months ago when the Foreign Ministry started turning up the Turkish heat, the left in Israel went bananas. The resulting insanity termed sofagate, and ensuing calls for resignations had less to do with maintaining already brutal Turkish ties and more to do with trying to marginalize Lieberman & Ayalon of Israel Beitenu from what I could garner.
Is this the reason the government is now so accommodating of this egregious Turkish behavior? Were we once bitten twice shy and now our officials are loath to risk political heat with Turkey? It better not be, because it’s time to go on offense, and stop playing Turkish defense. We are under assault from Turkey, and so far the Israeli government response has been well, non-existent.
The Jihad Against Israel Continues
With the UN sham Human Rights Council Gaza probe wrapping up today, we can shortly expect conclusions to be vomiting up from numerous ‘human rights’ organizations and eventually the grand daddy of perversions itself, the UN council will present its findings in September. Israel refused to participate officially in light of the absurd hatreds represented by the UN Human Rights Council in general, which ignores actual genocides & human rights abuses occurring as we speak worldwide, and contents itself to simply passing resolution after resolution condemning Israel..
Let’s talk about the fact that the World’s leading human rights abusers like our pals the Saudis, the Iranians, the Chavezs of this world and other assorted Obama allies are the ones who get to sit and pass judgment in this farce. While at the same time provide funding to the ’Human Rights’ groups we are always reading about, who’s sole purpose in life is seemingly to demonize Israel. That’s quite a little scam they have going.
What is the mission of the inquiry?
Reuters sums it up nicely via YNET..
‘Extent of physical damage shook all of us,’ says head of investigation into recent Israeli offensive in Strip, adding ‘ aim is to show the human side of suffering and give a voice to victims’
Yeah, let’s give voice to the victims!
We can start by voicing our collective outrage as to how the real victim here Israel, is assaulted by terrorists launching thousands of rockets against civilian populations for over 7 years (war crimes) and is then crucified by the world for acting in its own self defense. We can talk about the libelous accusations the lying & manipulative propaganda experts known more formally as Hamas terrorists, gleefully spread to an eager media machine obsessed with judging Jews & Israel by the biggest double standard known to man. How else of course to satisfy world wide bloodlust and hatred of Joooooz?
We can talk about how Hamas seized the Gaza strip by force and violence and killings, persecutes Christians, instituted Sharia Laws, mutilated and murdered fellow Palestinians who resist them, stockpiled & launched thousands of rockets, stole humanitarian aid for their own use.. Then claimed they were being persecuted by Israel and were starving while the BBC and Jeremy ‘Bozo’ Bowen wept. We can talk about how we supply this population who swears our destruction with food, water, electricity, money and goods out of our kindness and sympathy for humanity’s sake day in & out.
Col. Richard Kemp, Former Commander British Forces in Afghanistan on the matters at hand.
China kills 150 people in the span of a few hours a day or so ago, hardly makes the headlines. Israel defends itself in a military operation spanning nearly a month to stop rocketing of its populace, 1400 people are killed - Most of them Hamas terrorists and the Earth stops rotating on its axis.
If the West is ‘so concerned’ about ‘suffering on both sides’, maybe it is time to topple the illegitimate terrorist government in Gaza which is causing it? If I were in charge the operation would have been called ‘Cast Dread’ and Gaza would look like a parking lot today. I’m not nearly as evolved as Israeli & British Colonels apparently ; )
The Hits Just Keep on Coming!
Not satisfied with the massive concession by Israel’s elected government to accept a two state solution and a 95% halt to all settlements President Obama has more demands. Now despite the fact that humanitarian aid is constantly flowing the newest & latest pressure gambit is to open up Gaza’s crossings. Of course it is.. Never mind that the Hamas isolation policy is Quartet policy, American policy, Israeli policy. There’s a new sherif.. er weakling in town, President Obama.
With the EU now openly seeking to legitimize Hamas, former President Carter (Obama’s ideological mentor? or mental case? you decide.) holding back tears, what else is to be expected? Sec. Clinton didn’t waste time re-stating that Israel’s concessions on these matters were not sufficient..
Clinton reiterated that the U.S. viewed a total settlement freeze as “important and essential” step toward achieving peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
She said that special Mideast envoy George Mitchell would look at a “number of critical concerns” regarding settlements.
“There are a number of critical concerns, many of which overlap in their impact and significance, that will be explored in the coming weeks as Senator Mitchell engages more deeply into the specifics as to where the Israelis and the Palestinians are willing to go together.”
Clinton also said that Israeli leaders have in the past shifted their stance on the issue, and expected the current government to evolve in the same fashion.
The more concessions we give the worse it is going to get. FM Lieberman meanwhile who was meeting with Sec of State Clinton maintained what can now only be described after Netanyahu’s speech as clear Israeli policy. No expansion of settlements but growth inside our territory and existing community boundaries will continue. It doesn’t appear to be enough, now we need to concede a state, concede settlements, concede to the Hamas terrorists.. Soon it will be concede Jerusalem, concede to refugees. This will never end. For what!?
Clinton noted that previous Prime Ministers changed their views over the years, implying we should cave to the demands. Clearly the massive concession to accept a PA state by Netanyahu brought us nothing, but more demands.
It is time to stop worrying about what Obama thinks Or what Obama says, or what Obama does. His plan to squeeze us will proceed regardless of what we do irrespective of how much we comply. There has been total silence from Washington over the never ending statements of total rejection to his plans from the Arab world, on the total rejection for peace.. This is not about peace it is about caving to Arab demands – I’m not sure whether it is because Obama is an Arabist, or just a naive fool. But either way the strategy of clearly stating NO and demanding concessions from the other side seems to be working wonders for the Palestinians & Arabs. We should adopt it wholeheartedly.
Where are the Hamas concessions?
Has Hamas renounced violence, recognized the Jewish Israeli State? Met PA commitments? No, the PA itself, our peace partners have not even met these conditions.. Meanwhile Gilad Shalit is now 3 years in captivity with Hamas terrorists. It’s time to tell the President of the United States to go fly a kite. I don’t care any longer about over flights to Iran, or the dangling of possible future sanctions against Tehran, it’s all bull. We will be left hanging by this administration in the end. We will also be left hanging by our friends in the US Congress & Senate.
There is only one answer to all these demands from here on in. Sorry, but No. They are going to blame Israel in any case, better to be blamed and keep our concessions than to be blamed and haven given gifts that can never be reclaimed.
You know I didn’t need to post this because I ripped it right off SoccerDad’s blog but I couldn’t resist*
The reason temptation grabbed me so heartily is that last week, I read an article on Booth while looking to find out more about this former BBC anchor.. Here’s what I found and it is an enlightening piece of what goes into forming these rabid maniacs who submit themselves to the Palestinian horror machine with full force. They are usually quite disturbed as I had imagined. But each should reserve his or her own judgement..
Quite the cuckoo, in any case she’s ‘trapped’ in Gaza after having sailed on the blockade breaking Gazan Peace Boat, you know the one the Palestinians were disappointed didn’t contain more food because they are all starving? Here’s a picture of the horrible state of affairs in Gaza.
If I go to Gaza can I also be an International Peace Envoy? Better yet, haven’t I done enough merely with this post to warrant the title actually? Apparently so since Tony has been doing little ‘envoying’ of late that I can tell..
Incidentally, that grocery store is more packed with goods than either of the two near my apartment in Tel Aviv, and the computer is fancier too.. Pls pardon my french but Lauren has a pretty fat looking ass for a woman on Gazan starvation rations – If only we had so much to eat when the Romans laid siege to the holy city of Jerusalem we might still have a temple!
* He’s also got more images – I’ll tell you this, the likelyhood of you often seeing SD type the words ‘fat ass’ in one of his posts is probably pretty low, so I have clearly added something to the topic and am feeling better about my thievery already ; )
