More Statements from Activists – Israeli Massacre of Freedom Flotilla

2000 people came out in an emergency protest against the Israeli massacre of unarmed peace activists bringing aid to Gaza. Israeli forces boarded the Freedom Flotilla in international waters and began shooting. This is the first of 2 NYC demonstrations. There were many Turkish flags present at the demonstration as well as Palestinian flags. People called for boycott of Israel and an end of U.S. support. As one person put it, we want money for jobs not for war on poor people abroad.

    It’s long overdue time for the United States to STOP undermining foreign governments, assasinating foreign leaders, installing puppet governments and IMMEDIATELY HALT it’s lopsided support for Israel. It’s time people woke up to the FACT that ZIONISM is a disease that seeks to dominate every country for it’s own benefit. This isn’t anti-jew, this is anti-zionist !

    As I read the growing tsunami of reports following the barbaric attack by Israeli army of mercenaries, trained to kill people in their sleep, women and children, and this time on the high seas, I am overwhelmed with a sad sense of foreboding and wonder at the unconscionable and unfathomable stupidity of Israel and the Zionist psychopaths. Sadder yet, the Israeli populace looks more and more like the moronic Germans cheering on the Nazi’s in pre WW2 German. Something Leni Riefenstahl captured so brilliantly in her film “The Triumph of the Will” (available on Google videos).

    Israel is an artificial creation, a gift from the world in recognition of Jewish victimhood in WW2. In view of Israel’s exponentially growing barbarism it may be time to reconsider, maybe even rescind the gift. Lieberman has already made it clear that Israel will not hesitate to use nukes, even if it means the destruction of Israel and every foolish Israeli, mindlessly cheering on its leaders into their own possible oblivion. Has the world ever seen such hopeless lunacy? Yes. In pre-1939 Germany.

    As I watch the swelling tsunami of reports in connection with Israel’s latest unconscionable massacre, yet another act of state-sponsored lunacy on the high seas (following the attack on the USS Liberty a few decades ago), I am overwhelmed with a feeling of sad foreboding. Reading, hearing and watching the unfathomable and growing madness of the Israeli state and Zionist pathetic rhetoric tests ones boundaries of credibility.

    The unconscionable parochialism of the Israelis with pretensions to a world-class society reminds me of pre-1939 Germans as captured by Leni Riefenstahl in her brilliant documentary “The Triumph of the Will” (available on Google videos). There is a difference between the two states, tho’: Israel, as declared by its FM Lieberman, is prepared to use its nukes, indifferent to the fact that this will mean a destruction of every single Israeli. And the citizenry is OK with that?

    Jews were granted a state in recognition of their suffering in WW2. In light of its exponentially growing psychotic barbarism, maybe the world should consider rescinding this gift? The planet’s future may depend on it.

    ISRAEL HAS GONE INSANE. I fear for the Irish ship heading for Gaza, the last ship in the convoy which was detained for two days and started late. The cargo was inspected in Ireland, and the Irish PM has asked Israel for safe passage. Israel has said it will use MORE force. THE UNITED STATES MUST STOP ALL FUNDING TO ISRAEL NOW. The Irish workers in Gaza saw the bombing of the school first hand. The world now knows Israel’s dirty ploys, the constant victim stance is old. The world no longer supports Israel and their criminal acts. The Irish ship is going to be a test that could start a war. Irish 4 Palestine!!!!!!!

    My G-d told me that the Israelis should find a new homeland because it is too dangerous where they are now with flotillas of marauding vicious, barbarian humanitarians threatening to invade. My Almighty tells me that they should go West. He’s given me a map for them with directions to the new Promised Land so this time they don’t have to wander in the desert for 40 years. Next year Arizona, people of the Book?

    The U.S. will block whatever the U.N. and other nations decide to do to Israel for their newest crime.

    The problem is Zionism and the leaders of Isreal that believe ethnic cleansing is ok if it secures a homeland even at the expense of the indigenous population of Palestine.
    Even Israeli archaeolists agree that there was no Exodus , Joshua invasion and that the proto-Isrealites were native Canaanites. Ergo: no covenant or promised land. Judaism is a tool that the Zionists use to justify the ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Only Israel has carried out the colonization of a foreign land in the 20th century by forcing the indigenous population out at the point of a gun.
