The Israel bashing from the haters at the American al-Jazeera is moving at breathtaking speed. We cannot count on our corrupt media to give us the truth about what occurred on the flotilla. This was not an aggressive move by the Israelis, but an act of self defense. The Israelis must rely on a blockade to keep arms from getting into the hands of their many enemies. For that reason, the flotilla was stopped and searched before the violence erupted.
This nonsense about a "humanitarian crisis" is a complete fabrication meant to gain sympathy for those Palestinians who main goal in life is to kill Jews, while accusing Israel of being the big, bad bully. The American al-Jazeera becomes nearly orgasmic when they get an opportunity to condemn Israel.
President Obama has been surprisingly quiet on this incident. I guess with poll numbers in the toilet and Jewish concern over his harsh treatment of Israel, he feels he must watch his step. It's probably killing him not to offer his anti-Israel sentiments. But give him time; his strong allegiance to the Palestinian jihadists will surface.
Once again, we must rely on the internet to gets some facts regarding this incident. Here's the latest, via Melanie Phillips at the UK Telegraph:
'Peace convoy'? This was an Islamist terror ambush
"As the international community rushes to condemn Israel for the violence on board one of the ships in the Gaza flotilla, which left a reported 10 people dead and dozens injured, it is now obvious that the real purpose of this ‘armada of hate’ was not merely the further delegitimisation of Israel but something far worse.
Gaza’s markets are full of produce, thousands of tons of supplies are travelling into Gaza every week through the Israeli-controlled border crossings, and there is no starvation or humanitarian crisis. It was always obvious that the flotilla was not the humanitarian exercise it was said to be. Here is footage of the IDF offering to dock the Marmara -- the main flotilla ship -- at Ashdod and transfer its supplies and being told ‘Negative, negative, our destination is Gaza’.
And now we can see that the real purpose of this invasion -- backed by the Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), a radical Islamic organization outlawed by Israel in 2008 for allegedly serving as a major component in Hamas’s global fund-raising machine -- was to incite a violent uprising in the Middle East and across the Islamic world. As I write, reports are coming in of Arab rioting in Jerusalem.
The notion – uncritically swallowed by the lazy, ignorant and bigoted BBC and other western media – that the flotilla organisers are ‘peace activists’ is simply ludicrous. This research by the Danish Institute for International Studies details the part played by the IHH in Islamist terror in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Chechnya. According to the French magistrate Jean-Louis Bruguiere testifying at the Seattle trial of would-be al Qaeda Millenium bomber Ahmed Ressamin, the IHH had played ‘[a]n important role’ in the al Qaeda Millenium bomb plot targeting Los Angeles airport. It was also involved in weapons trafficking, and played in addition a key role in galvanizing anti-Western sentiment among Turkish Muslims in the lead-up to the 2003 war in Iraq. ‘Peace activists’ these people most certainly are not.
And this flotilla was but the latest jihadi attack, deploying the Islamists’ signature strategy of violence and media manipulation. Here from MEMRI (via Just Journalism) is a clip showing the hysteria against Israel being whipped up on board before the ships set sail, with the chanting of intifada songs about ‘Khaybar’ – the iconic slaughter of Jews by Muslims in the 7th century which is used as a rallying cry to kill the Jews today -- and threats of ‘martyrdom’. This was not merely a propaganda stunt, but a terrorist attack."

Two more ships are on the move to break the blockade. Read from Atlas Shrugs:
Another Two Warships in Anti-Humanitarian Flotilla Make their Way to the Jewish State
"In the post-American world, a convoy of war ships trussed up as a 'flotilla' is affectionately called 'humanitarian aid.'
Worse still, Gaza, the world's largest and most successful fund raiser, is receiving more aid per person, per square mile, than anywhere else in the world. Gaza suffers no lack of 'humanitarian aid,' but it's not about that, it is about creating a narrative, as Nazi Germany did, in which to frame the next holocaust. The killing flotilla has become the rallying cry for the global jihadists hell bent on fulfilling the express command to kill the Jews, as prescribed over and over in the koran.
The only suffering in Gaza is at the hands of the barbarians, Hamas, whose first paragraph in their charter calls for the destruction of the Jewish state. Mere details, I know.
This is not about land, or humanitarian aid. This is about jihad, Islamic supremacism and annihilating the Jews. The level of anti-semitism in my email box and in the comments is full blown out of control. Evil unleashed. Pure evil. This is not about borders or land or aid. This about good vs. evil.
56 ginormous Muslim countries, one tiny Jewish state, and they are in a constant bloodthirsty frenzy over it.
Next up? Two more war ships, "jihad flotillas make their way to the Jewish state;.........."
