After Ship Kidnapped by Israeli Navy, Freedom Flotilla Vows 'We Will Sail Again'

Sarah Lazare, staff writer

A freedom flotilla sailing to break the blockade of Gaza was captured early Monday morning by the Israeli navy and the 18 journalists, campaigners, and crew aboard are currently in the occupying army's custody, in an attack global supporters are calling piracy and kidnapping at high sea.

May all the Volvos stop at once in Israel due to the Gothenburg curse…

Silly rabbit! Israel is always in the right. Once you grasp that fundamental concept, the geo-political situation in the Middle East is childishly easy to understand.

Sweden: Among the most CIVILIZED places I’ve visited!

I threw up a little in my mouth before I liked your comment.

Breaks my heart. Ten years ago I was greeted with open arms in Gothenburg and Stockholm despite the boob that occupied the big house at the time.

Without the European Zionists and their aliyahs of invasion the Arabs would be living much better. After all the invading Zionists bulldozed hundreds of Arab villages and towns during the armistice.

Yeah… Anyone know exactly where Bernie stands on THIS part of the Israel issue? Anyone KNOW his plan(s) for dealing with the two rogues, US & Israel?

Bullshit, it is a legal blockade and the blockading power has the right to seize would-be blockade runners in international waters–and Gaza is blockaded, not occupied. Just pure crap.


#22

International law allows a country to blockade a territory that is at war with it–which is the case between Hamas ruled Gaza and Israel. Hamas has on occasion agreed to temporary cease fires but has declared that peace is out of the question–and that makes the blockade to keep weapons and war material out of Hamas’ hands legal.

Does the Israeli Defense Fund pay you and Ishmailav for this nonsense right out of the Israeli propaganda handbook? Are you two of the students that the IDF hires to write this stuff?

Or is your remote stuck on Fox News?

If it was not Hamas, it would be someone else you would be in a state of ‘war’ with. Besides, no one denies the right to inspect for weapons, etc, but you do not allow all sorts of normal commerce and supplies. Part of this ‘state of war’, no doubt. Or is it just a drawn-out attempt at the extermination of ‘subhumans’?

Maybe you didn’t notice, but I’m in Salzburg Austria, not Israel (and I’ve never been in Israel), so I’m not an Israeli as you seem to think. The Israelis allow hundreds of truckloads of supplies into Gaza every day and even did so during the war except when the crossing was attacked by Hamas rockets. Egypt sends nothing and keeps their crossing closed to good (and most of the time to people too). Over a million tons of construction supplies have gone from Israel to Gaza, even though Hamas has been diverting them to use for building tunnels for war against Israel (tunnels crossing the border into Israel). The Israeli blockade is against weapons and war material, other goods are allowed through in accordance with international law and humane practices. If you think otherwise you are falling for lies spread by Israel’s enemies. Of course your implication that Israel is engaging in racist extermination suggests that you are yourself one of those liars.

Ah yes, Remember the USS Liberty!

  • Google it and learn, learn well.

One of the IDF Poobahs said, on television, that if Israel ever faced defeat, they would exercise the Sampson Option. Their several hundred nuclear armed ICBMs are targeted on the major cities and capitals of the world. As a last act, they would press the button and take the world with them.

  • It has been my contention for years that the Israeli Government should all be in rubber rooms, playing with soft toys, not prancing about on the world stage. Amongst other things, their oral diarrhea makes the theater stink.
