Embarrassed Israel spreads disinformation, lies, to justify flotilla massacre
By Khalid Amayreh in East Jerusalem

Israel, embarrassed by its naval forces’ bloody interception of Gaza-bound ships carrying humanitarian relief materials for besieged Gazans, has been spreading disinformation and outright lies to justify the ostensible massacre.

Dozens of people were either killed or injured when special Israeli naval units stormed and opened fire on a Turkish ship around dawn Monday.

The Gaza Freedom Flotila  were carrying hundreds of peace activists from more than 50 nationalities,  opposed to Israel’s Nazi-like siege of the Gaza Strip.

The manifestly criminal attack on the civilian ship is already generating angry reactions around the world, with dozens of countries denouncing the attack as constituting “criminal piracy.”

A spokesman of the Turkish government warned that Israel would have to face consequences of its criminal act.

Greece, many of whose nationals  were taking part in the Freedom Flotilla, has suspended an aerial exercise with the Israeli air-force.

Meanwhile, Israeli officials have resorted to spreading lies and disinformation in order to save its image following the criminal assault on the Gaza Freedom  Flotilla.

One Zionist official, Dany Ayalon, claimed that the flotilla was “an armada of hate and violence,” a claim rejected and denied by one of the  flotilla organizers, Huweida Arraf,  as “obscene and pornographic lies.”

Ayalon accused the organizers of having “connections to international terrorist organizations such as Hamas and Al-Qaida.”

He called the convoy a “violent and provocative attempt to break the blockade on Gaza .”

Ayalon, who has been described as “a psychotic case,” claimed that stashes of weapons were aboard the ships.”

The Israeli media, acting as mouthpieces for the Israeli government, spoke of “clashes” on board the Turkish vessel.

The Israeli foreign ministry said it was launching a public relation campaign aimed at limiting the political and public relations damage following the bloody incident.

Another Israeli official, War Minister Ehud Barak, also made manifestly mendacious charges, blaming the victims for their own death at the hands of Israeli forces.

Angry reactions to the flotilla massacre came from Palestinian leaders in Israel.

Knesset member Mohammed Barakeh  “praised” the victory of the Israeli navy over unarmed men and women carrying powder milk to besieged Gaza children.

Barakeh added: “Any government that puts itself outside international and humanitarian law will consign itself to the garbage can of history.

Talab al-Sanei, another Arab Knesset member, said the flotilla massacre had “exposed the ugly face of Zionism, the violence and aggression of the government of Israel “.

Sanei described the interception as an act of state terror against a humanitarian mission and called for Israel’s leaders to be tried for war crimes.

“This event proves you don’t have to be a German to be a Nazi,” he said.

Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas described the Israeli attack as “a real massacre.”

Nabil Sha’aat, a Fatah official, called the attack “a war crime, a crime against humanity committed in international water.”

He blamed the silence of the international community in the face of  this “Nazi-like criminality perpetrated by this hateful, racist state,” saying the world has been tolerating Israeli criminality for too long.

Shaath was speaking in Ramallah Monday afternoon during a rally in solidarity with Turkey.

Shaath most of the people  killed aboard the Turkish ship were Turks.

    Don’t worry! Israel, the Middle East’s only nuclear state, always has a PLAN B!

    PLAN A: Gleefully stomp on the faces of the weak and helpess – purely in self-defence, of course!

    PLAN B: Grovel, and lick the boots of any country on which PLAN A won’t work.

    Turkey is about to get its boots shined!

    I wrote a quick little article a couple days ago and this guy posted a comment where he left a link to a video showing IDF being beaten by passengers. When you follow the link at bottom of youtube video it leads to an IDF channel. I keep seeing their videos now.

    If have chance read the comment from a Dan Ryan and Mark. I think they are of these people being paid to write these comments, specifically Dan Ryan. Maybe Mark is just an idiot.

    Meanwhile thank you for your good article and work getting info out on this latest Israeli terrorism. I did post your article on my blog with all appropriate links back to this main source.

    Watch for an attack on Iran to take everyone’s eyes off of the Zionazis actions and the Goldman Sachs short sell on the Gulf OF Mexico leak.
