  1. Israeli Arabs side with Hamas

    Young Israeli Arabs at Haifa University rioted, hurled rocks and firebombs at police over the Gaza flotilla incident.

    The loyal Arabs, whose education is heavily subsidized by silly Jews, seemed unconcerned with the fact that hundreds of Hamas supporters on the boat attacked their fellow Israeli citizens who merely tried to forcibly send their non-existent cargo for security check in Ashdod port

  2. BB has a good excuse for avoiding a meeting with Obama.

    I wonder if this whole scenario was not considered when approving operational tactics??

    Could BB be that devious?

    Israel was bound to be pilloried in the media and world public opinion in any event.

    Otherwise the IDF come across as as incompetent bumbling fools. They boarded the ship armed with paint guns?

    That’s a new one in the annals of modern warfare. Kill them with non lethal paint balls. INCREDIBLE!!!!

  3. why is there no emphasis on the IHH control of the Marmara, which would explain why the violence was only on the Marmara? CNN just showed Ayalon on Israeli tv ch10, and even he danced around this singular fact. Or is it not so clear?
