INCITEMENT OF “PEACE” ACTIVISTS – Gaza flotilla participants chanted Islamic battle cry invoking killing of Jews.
The name Khaibar mentioned in battle cry was the last Jewish village defeated by Muhammad’s army in 628. The battle marked the end of Jewish presence in Arabia. There are Muslims who see that as a precursor for future wars against Jews. At gatherings and rallies of extremists, this chant is often heard as a threat to Jews to expect to be defeated and killed again by Muslims.
TUNDRA This makes it the very first time in history that European legislators were among those who were planning and then carrying out a terrorist attack against the state of Israel.
ISRAELIS warn the ships not to continue:
The Flotilla “activists” are/were not peace activists nor humanitarians, but a combination of Muslim terrorist thugs, Arab propagandists and stupid European fools. I wonder how many of those 19 European legislators and the fake Holocaust survivor will be now willing to have their names associated with a planned terrorist attack against Israel?
Among the Swedes on board is Ulf Carmesund, international secretary for the Social democrats’ Brotherhood movement (Broderskapsrörelsen), the only organization in Sweden openly working with the Muslim Brotherhood.And member of parliament for the Green party Mehmet Kaplan, who invited the Muslim Brotherhood into Swedish parliament. And Dror Feiler, who openly calls for Israel to recognize Hamas. These guys are hardly innocent activists.
Mattias Gardell, professor of religious history at Uppsala University, is known for taking part in extreme left demonstrations where terrorist slogans have been chanted. The only person among the Swedes who’s not an absolute traitor is the crime writer Henning Mankell. He seems blissfully ignorant. He’s a son-in-law of Ingmar Bergman, btw.”
NOTE: Dror Feiler is the notorious ex-Israeli traitor that made an “art” presentation with a pond of blood with a picture of a terrorist floating in it that Israeli Ambassador to Sweden, Zvi Mazel, damaged by throwing a lamp into it.
Gaza Flotilla aspires to martrydom. Hopefully Israel will accomodate them.
IDF: Soldiers were met by well-planned lynch mob, concealed handguns.
JERUSALEM POST Upon boarding the ships, the soldiers encountered fierce resistance from the passangers who were armed with knives, bats and metal pipes. The soldiers used non-lethal measures to disperse the crowd. The activists succeeded in stealing the weapon from one of the IDF’s soldiers and reportedly opened fire, leading to an escalation in violence.
VIDEO Footage from Israeli Naval Two IDF provide proof that the “peace activists” that Navy commandoes expected on the flotilla actually were armed extremists who had carefully planned to ambush, attack and kill the soldiers. One commando suffered serious wounds after a being thrown 10 meters from the bridge of one ship to the deck below.boat as passengers attack Israeli commandos boarding the ship:
“It was like a well-planned lynch,” one IDF officer said. “These people were anything but peace activists.”
The IDF said that the ships would be taken to the Ashdod Port where, despite the violence, the cargo that are carrying will be inspected and then transferred to the Gaza Strip via land crossings. Israeli Navy commander Vice-Admiral Eliezer Marom was commanding over the operation from sea.
Israeli military officials have released new video of Navy Seals being violently attacked immediately upon boarding the ships.
Israel’s prime minister has expressed his support for the military’s actions in a deadly raid against an aid flotilla sailing to the blockaded Gaza Strip.
Benjamin Netanyahu’s office says he spoke Monday to top Israeli diplomatic and security officials by telephone from Canada and voiced his “full backing” for the military.

ISRAELI DEFENSE MINISTER RESPONDS
Israel braces for Turkish, Hizballah, Hamas reprisals.
DEBKA Military sources report Israeli concerns that Turkey may not confine itself to strong diplomatic retaliation for the Israel Navy’s seizure Monday, May 31, of the Marmora, the Turkish vessel leading the flotilla for breaking the Gaza blockade and resort to military action along with the Iranian-backed Hizballah and Hamas. A statement from Ankara threatened “unprecedented and incalculable” reprisals.
VIDEO footage from the IDF helicopter
DEBKAfile reports from Ankara that the Turkish government is planning to continue pounding the Israeli blockade with more flotillas and have them escorted by Turkish warships and fighter jets. Israel merchant vessels moored outside Ashdod port have been instructed to sail into port and take shelter in case of missile attacks from the Gaza Strip against Ashdod and Ashkelon.
Monday morning, Israeli warplanes headed west over the Mediterranean in support of the still ongoing Israeli commando operation aboard the Turkish Marmora, the scene of violent clashes between Israeli troops and the 600 “peace activists,” some of them armed. Ankaralater reported 15 dead aboard the vessel.
UNARMED ISRAELI SOLDIER STABBED BY “PEACE” ACTIVIST
Israeli army spokesman, Col. Avi Beneyahu, called the incident “an act of terror on the high seas.” Far from being a humanitarian mission, the flotilla was sponsored personally by Turkish prime minister Recep Erdogan to break the Israeli blockade on Gaza and permit arms supplies and terrorist to reach the Strip unrestricted. It aimed at provoking a widely publicized international incident with fatalities and showing Israel using strong-arm tactics against unarmed peace-lovers.
Its leaders and the nations involved therefore refused to heed warnings that the vessels would be prevented from entering Gaza Port and rejected Israeli offers to ferry their aid cargo overland to the Gaza Strip.
The pro-Hamas passengers were described as mobbing the Israeli commandos as they were dropped onto the Marmara’s deck, using knives and iron bars to beat them and shooting with a sidearm snatched from a soldier and at least two other pistols recovered empty from two of the bodies.
Israeli security forces are preparing for the Lebanese Hizballah and Palestinian Hamas to go back to shooting missiles and rockets against Israeli towns, in support of the seaborne attack on Israeli commandos. Egypt will face pressure to end its joint embargo on Gaza with Israel at the Arab League Council meeting urgently Tuesday, June 1. Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas demanded the session.
Pamela Geller has a better perspective on what is really going on with this Terrortilla.
Today’s incident on the Gaza jihad flotilla was an act of war – but not by Israel. The tsunami of Jew-hating propaganda from the jihad-loving media has already begun. The international media, predictably, is spinning the story as if it were all Israel’s fault, saying that the IDF killed innocent civilian humanitarian workers on a flotilla headed to Gaza to bring aid to the starving people there.
In reality, none of that is true. This was an act of war against Israel. The people in Gaza aren’t starving, and the “humanitarian aid workers” on the flotilla were actually Islamic jihadists who attacked the IDF first. It was a planned attack — by Hamas and the hardline Muslim groups. Hamas supporters planned an armed assault, which included the murder of captured Israeli heroes. They almost succeeded. Atlas Shrugs
INTERNATIONAL LAW SUPPORTS ISRAELI action against flotilla
LINK Palestinian apologists are fond of–and adept at–claiming that Israel is contravening international law whenever it defends itself. Not surprisingly–those apologists are twisting the law again.
SECTION V : NEUTRAL MERCHANT VESSELS AND CIVIL AIRCRAFT
Neutral merchant vessels
67. Merchant vessels flying the flag of neutral States may not be attacked unless they:
(a) are believed on reasonable grounds to be carrying contraband or breaching a blockade, and after prior warning they intentionally and clearly refuse to stop, or intentionally and clearly resist visit, search or capture;
We can only hope that the people who habitually take everything the pro-Palestinian apologists say as true will take the opportunity to check the facts. Yes, and it would be nice if the media did too. H/T ROD
EURO-TRASH JEWS FOR HITLER HAMAS come out against Israel, as usual.
Hopefully one day, we will see video of these Israel-hating Jews hanging by their necks in the Muslim streets.
