Pray for the Rachel Corrie


Considering how peppy and alert the Israelis have proven to be regarding the dangerous peace activists, perhaps we ought to hire them to intercept the oil spill off the Gulf Coast. After all, if they could intercept seven ships well outside their 68 mile exclusion zone, they should've had no problem stopping an oil slick that began only 40 miles from Louisiana. All we have to do is convert New Orleans' mostly Baptist residents to Judaism and Israel will be there in a flash.

There's another showdown brewing off the coast of Gaza between the Rachel Corrie MV, the sole ship in the flotilla that was carrying 10 tons of aid to the Palestinians, and the US-funded Israeli terrorist network. Undeterred and more determined than ever, the ship carrying Malaysian and Irish aid workers are moving their way toward the Gaza strip in defiance of Israel's brutal and possibly even illegal embargo of relief supplies.

And in spite of nearly universal international condemnation, the Israeli terrorists have vowed to be even more brutal when they intercept the Rachel Corrie. Meanwhile, Turkey has promised to dispatch two more aid ships to Palestine except this time, they'll be accompanied by Turkish naval vessels.

We now know the Israeli Marines who rappelled onto the boats like wouldbe ninjas began firing on the flotilla and the hands aboard it even before they boarded. We know that the Israelis disabled the communications satellite, thereby jamming cell phones and preventing the besieged aid workers from calling for help.

We now know that 19 aid workers (not one or two or nine, but 19) were murdered and at least 60 were injured in the predawn invasion of the flotilla in which six ships and several hundreds of men, women and children were apprehended and taken hostage to Ashdod. During their detention, the prisoners complained that they were denied food, water, sleep and even bathroom facilities.

Yet to hear the "liberal" media talk about it, Jewish journalists like Joshua Mitnick and Amy Teibel have described Israel's release of their hostages as "expelling" and "deporting" the "activists".

In fact, Teibel even engages in a daring bit of revisionist history by informing us that "Hamas militants violently seized power in June 2007", not that they were lawfully elected during Palestine's elections. Oy vey. No pro-Israel bias there, folks.

What Mitnick and Teibel fail to adequately explain is how it's possible to deport from Israel hundreds of aid workers who were on their way not to Israel but the Gaza Strip on a humanitarian aid mission and were apprehended more than 68 miles from Israel's shores (well outside the exclusion zone, in international waters) and forcibly held in detention facilities. As of now, despite the release of hundreds of prisoners, well over 100 aid workers remain behind bars simply for trying to do the right thing by countering Israeli thuggery and genocide.

We could do the right thing and support the Turkish navy and help the aid workers by dispatching our own naval vessels. But of course Obama won't do that because the out-of-control Zionist zombies running the Knesset will consider that an act of war. It's an unspoken rule in Washington: Israel dictates our foreign policy in the Middle East, always has and always will. It's a classic case of the pint-sized bully, overcompensating for prior abuse, running the playground.

However, the Turks are one of Israel's few Muslim allies yet they've shown the intestinal fortitude to get their military involved. Many nationalities were represented in the flotilla and we also had our own people on board. In fact, one of them was Ann Wright, a former US diplomat.

To give you an idea of how insane Israel is, even the equally draconian Egyptian government, they of the torture palaces, actually relaxed their embargo and had briefly opened their borders to Palestinians wishing to flee or seek medical aid. Here's a partial list of some the relief supplies banned by Israel (It seems to be anything beginning with the letter "C"): Coriander. Coffee. Chocolate.

And Cement.

According to David Frum, cement has been rightfully banned because it could be used to (gasp) make bunkers (presumably the coffee would keep them up all night making those evil bunkers and the coriander and chocolate would make it a tastier, more pleasant experience). And we all know that the Palestinians shouldn't have any cause to fear their Israeli friends, don't we?

JP, why is the media (all over) still reporting 9 killed? Can you shed some light on the numbers please?

Like I said, some estimates have said the body count's as high as 19. The Israeli propaganda machine is alive and well in the "liberal" media as, I've turned up in my own, certain Jewish members of the MSM are all too happy to pass along the lies.

It's only a matter of time before they pick up on the hot story that the peace activists are actually al Qaida members. Terorists that they began attacking with paint ball guns and released within 72 hours.

Was'nt Rachel Corrie that dizzy bitch from Seattle who was disillusioned enough to stand in front of a friggin bulldozer.

She was every bit as dizzy, determined and brave, as the man who stood in front of the tanks in Tiananmen Square. It's just that the Chinese commies seemed to have some concept of the word shame- a concept also foreign to our own native shores.

Sad to say, I was cheering to see the blockade-runners kicking the shit out of the helicopter pirates for those first few moments. And I used to LIKE Israel!

People, I, like you, would love the Turkish navy to dare the Israeli forces, but that won’t happen any time soon. Since our politicians, spineless and slow as snails, won’t make a stand against this brutal apartheid regime, it is up to us to do our bit in fighting the inhumane practices these bastards resort to in their project greater Israel.

1. Donate to the Free Gaza movement, the group which organises these aid convoys. I have previously donated cash and done so again two days ago after this latest Israeli crime. Doesn't have to be a huge sum, any contribution is a drop hollowing the Israeli rock.

2. Write an e-mail to the Israeli Foreign Office and tell them about your donation, mentioning that you will continue to fund the Free Gaza cause until the day Israel stops the blockade.

3. In the same e-mail tell them you’ll stop purchasing Israeli products and that you’ll be actively trying to get your friends and colleagues to join the cause.

There are ways you and me can convey our message of disgust to the Israeli government slash establishment. Changing our consumer habits, making sure that no hard earned cent of ours is making its way to this in large parts morally corrupt nation. Let your wallets and purses do the talking, speak out with your cheque books and credit cards.

If we want our voices to be heard, we must first stop whispering, turn on our megaphones. So, to start up, send your English-language article or letter to the editor of as many media outlets as you can.

Once you’ve send your letter to the editors, join the global Consumer BDS movement and Boycott, Divest and Sanction for Palestine.

Find out about which companies to boycott, such as the Arsenal Football Club and Johnson & Johnson. Next time you buy shampoo or baby products, read the label.

Anything produced in Israel will have a barcode on it that starts with the three digits 729.

Read about which western brands and labels not to buy, like Maggi, Coca Cola or Nestle products. I know its hard, but it can be done. We all can do it.

Write a letter to those firms Customer Care departments and let them know that you have stopped buying their products as they help to prop up or are in cahoots with the Israeli apartheid state.

Here are a few links.

Anyhow, thanx for another piece of writing worthwhile reading JP. Keep them coming.

Hm. Good suggestions.

The problem is, Israel is more deeply entrenched in our country than we'd like to admit or even know. And it extends to a lot more than a few bottles of shampoo or Coke.

For instance, Amdocs and NICE Systems, two Israeli firms populated by "former" Israeli intelligence officials, have been data-mining on US soil since at least the Bush administration.

The paranoid fucks are probably reading this even now before I even post it. Not that I care.
