Everyone has been following the news lately, and they have been following one thing Freedom Flotilla; unless of course they were otherwise following something more important such as soccer or the latest Star Academy.
A refresher; Freedom Flotilla carrying about 679 peace activists from over 50 different countries, Prominent passengers include some European MPs, and writers and journalists.
The Cargo included toys, school supplies, wheelchairs, medicines, food, clothing, cement, prefabricated homes, paper, and water purification tablets. “There is not even a razor, knife or jack-knife on board,” one of the organisers said, referring to the non-threatening nature of the cargo. Source
Disaster, or rather IDF commandoes, struck about 40 miles (64 km) out to sea, in international waters. The Israeli commandoes stormed the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara, of three ships provided by Insani Yardim Vakfi (IHH), a Turkish aid organisation with links to the Turkish government. Sources reported 9 killed and 200 wounded after the “courageous” commandoes shot live rounds and tear gas at the “terrifying” unarmed activists, there were other reports that included electric shock to the arsenal.

Now here one must stop and think what were they thinking?
The Israelis are very calculating, they’re not above faltering or having their plans foiled, but they are very calculating with a capacity for being devious and monstrous. They murder children every day without remorse. To them other nations are like animals or worst, especially Arabs. If you think I am making this up pick up a copy of the Talmud and you will read horrors.
And before I get accused of anti-Semitism, I am a Semite. So I can’t really be anti-myself, can I now?
Israel has the full backing of the US, and they don’t do anything without some kind of approval from them, they used to have the full support of the UK before the UK’s power waned, and they get away with murder all the time courtesy of the holly US and UK veto in the UNSC.
This time though it’s a bit different, there are more countries involved, most of them EU members with a lot more prominent figures involved, and as sad as it is with the loss of life it has finally showed the world the true face of Israel. It is sad that it took the death of Europeans and not the death of thousands of innocent women and children from Palestine to get the world’s attention.
Now then one has to wonder one last thing, had this been Somali pirates raiding an aid flotilla in international water, what would the Free World have done? Warships would be on them in a minute and there would have been hell to pay.
At the time of posting the last ship of the Freedom Flotilla the Irish MV Rachel Corrie is on its way to Gaza, even after what happened to its sisters, and the entire world is watching and wondering, what will Israel do?
Surah Al-Israa’ (The Night journey) 17:
:4 And We gave (Clear) Warning to the Children of Israel in the Book, that twice would they do mischief on the earth and be elated with mighty arrogance (and twice would they be punished)!
:5 When the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent against you Our servants given to terrible warfare: They entered the very inmost parts of your homes; and it was a warning (completely) fulfilled.
:6 Then did We grant you the Return as against them: We gave you increase in resources and sons, and made you the more numerous in man-power.
:7 If ye did well, ye did well for yourselves; if ye did evil, (ye did it) against yourselves. So when the second of the warnings came to pass, (We permitted your enemies) to disfigure your faces, and to enter your Temple as they had entered it before, and to visit with destruction all that fell into their power.
:8 It may be that your Lord may (yet) show Mercy unto you; but if ye revert (to your sins), We shall revert (to Our punishments): And we have made Hell a prison for those who reject (all Faith).
