...the reaction from the 'peace' vessel to the Israeli navy: "F- You", they replied.
Sink those Gaza flotilla ships! By disregarding the law, de-stabilizing any peace ('non violence' at this time) that exists, invading the shores which a sovereign country, Israel, secures, the Gaza Flotilla should be stopped, it's criminals arrested, and the ships sunk. These people are criminals. They launched themselves onto the sea, to perpetrate a pre-meditated crime. They knew and instigated the danger and consequences that a crime like this would incur. The governments of the foreign nationals aboard the ship should have stopped them knowing that their citizens were off to commit a crime that could have dangerous international repercussions. The (reportedly) two Israelis (Israeli Arabs or Leftists? Not yet known) who boarded the ship to set sail should also be arrested and tried for treason or whatever other laws they broke. All these people who set sail to purposely defy the law and support terrorists should be considered terrorists themselves. These people fought Israeli forces with knives, and beat Israeli soldiers with clubs, injuring several IDF soldiers. According to updated news reports, the Israeli soldiers also faced LIVE FIRE and weapons were found being carried on board the ship.
These terrorists and terrorist supporters defied, purposely defied, with hatred and low class cussing, orders from the Israeli government and Navy. When ordered by the Israel navy to leave the area and set sail to an Israeli port just north of Gaza, where their gifts [sic] to the terrorists would be delivered to Gaza if it met Israeli security measures, were replied with a 'negative, negative' and a "F-You!" Literally! I have the audio and am trying to get it up on this blog. In the meantime, watch this video of the LIVE warning the Israeli navy gave to the terrorists, and hear the flotilla leaders reply that they will not listen to the warning, replying, 'negative, negative'.
Israel Navy: "Mavi Marmara, you are approaching an area of hostilities which is under a naval blockade. The Gaza area coastal region and Gaza harbor are closed to all maritime traffic. The Israeli government supports delivery of humanitarian supplies to the civilian population in the Gaza Strip and invites you to enter the Ashdod port. Delivery of supplies in accordance with the authorities' regulations will be through the formal land crossings and under your observation, after which you can return to your home ports on the vessels on which you have arrived." (taken from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs site)
The audio which I have, but have not been able to upload so far for this blog, states the following:
"This is the Israeli Navy. You are approaching the area of hostilities which is under a naval blockade The Gaza area is a combat zone. By entering this zone, you are putting your vessel at risk. You are hereby ORDERED to change your course and refrain from entering the area. If you ignore this order, in attempt to enter the blockaded area, the Israel navy will be FORCED to take all the necessary measures, including boarding your vessel in order to enforce this blockade. Captain be aware that you are violating a legal naval blockade and that the organizers and captain of this sail (?) will be held responsible."
Later the news reporter plays the audio of the reaction from the 'peace' vessel to the Israeli navy: "F- You", they replied.

Afterwards, the invading vessel played Palestinian war songs!
In the meantime, these 'humanitarians' have caused the spread of violence with igniting riots in Turkey in front of the Israeli embassy, with an attempt to storm it. Hamas leaders in Gaza are calling on Arabs to riot inside and outside Israel.
Israel secures these shores from the Oslo Agreements. It was agreed upon and signed between the parties involved. The Israeli government needs to send a strong message to the world and it's terrorist supporters, that intruding on Israel's sovereignty and/or hurting her security, will be stopped, and all participants will suffer the consequences. This is an act of war against Israel. The terrorists and their supporters on board these ships must be arrested, tried in court, and the Israeli navy should sink those vessels! Those who sent their ships on this criminal and war-like act should pay a heavy financial price for their disgraceful participation in this terror supporting crime.
Israel, should sink those ships.
Where does a Jew Belong?
It shouldn't be such a tough question. Just simply answer it in your head, and think.
Anywhere in the Diaspora? No.
We just celebrated 62 years of Independence yesterday. While no country is perfect, and news headlines usually focus on bad news as opposed to good news, I thought it would be good to pull back the lens a bit and get some perspective of just where we should be focusing: on the miracles of the re-gathering of the Jewish people from the 4 corners of the earth, back home, in preparation for the redemption.
- By the way, the Prime Minister's 15 year old son, Avner, won third place in the Bible Contest yesterday. Pretty good! (It was won by girl by the way -heh heh- her name is Or Ashoel, from Kfar Saba). I also heard a rumor that PM Netanyahu is in turn reading the Torah, maybe studying with his son turned him on? Anyway, that's good news.
But back to the miracles of Israel.... I acknowledge that there are some in the Diaspora that cannot come because they have legitimate reasons; they are divorced and don't want to abandon their children, or they have elderly parents, etc... but those who cannot join their nation here, should at least have a yearning to come, and I know that many do!
But for the others, they are facing a serious consequence. And keep in mind, even the 'G-dless' secular Jews in the 19th century picked up their roots and came to the Land of Israel, a land ruled by the Muslim Turks (Ottoman Empire), a land that was infested with malaria and poverty. But they rolled up their sleeves and went to work to change things.
Please view these two videos below before continuing to read further.
Lest someone think they are too good to come here, too good to roll up their sleeves, too good to work and mold this country, and too good to 'lower' themselves in their standard of living, or too good to not have their dream job waiting for them, or not having their political demands met, let me state something here... History will not wait for you.
You will miss the train, deaf to the sounds of its chuga-chug-chug, from the sound of your voice complaining, or from the sound of your key board pounding out a zillion excuses why Israel is not 'ripe enough' for you.
A Jew belongs in his home here in Israel. Period. And History won't wait for you. The gates of aliyah can close at any time. Even a volcano knows that.
Happy '62' to those who are here and are grateful to G-d for the privilege of living in this land. We left the Diaspora, because we know where Jews belong.
"The Top 3 Reasons Not To Make Aliyah in the 1930's" ...as urged and egged on by the aliyah nay-sayers....
1) "You lemmings! The British are ruling there, and until there's an authentic Torah Jewish government, you would be committing suicide to go."
2) "The country is full of secular Israelis who hate the religious and don't want to be real Jews. They're G-dless communists. Unless you are going to go there to start a civil war and kill off those Tel Avivians, you are an idiot to leave Europe where we are emancipated!"
3) "The British government clearly takes the side of the Arabs over the Jews. The real Jews are beaten and their daughters are raped. The G-dless ones will try to draft your children into their Hagana and they will all then be commanded to throw Jews out of their homes in 'Jerusalem'. Unless they establish a Medinat Yehuda, it's suicide to go there.
And so, those who may have been foolish enough to listen to those ridiculous reasons didn't come.
And our brothers and sisters in Europe were eventually forced to leave their homes. And they had to wear yellow star badges. And their children were thrown out of school. And they lost their jobs. And they were starved, and abused and enslaved and finally murdered. And their great synagogues and great yeshivas were no more. And all was lost. All was lost. All was lost. And 6 million, SIX MILLION went to their deaths.
