Thank Yahweh the Israelis Got There in Time
Israeli propaganda has reached Flickr and it's so obviously fraudulent that it's laughable. Check out this photoset entitled "Weapons found aboard the Mavi Marmara" by IsraelMFA's account on Flickr. The problem is, many of the pictures that were posted by IsraelMFA (Mad Fanatical Assholes) on Flickr were taken years ago with the time stamps still embedded in the source code for anyone to find. Some of them, in fact, were taken as far back as New Year's Day 2003 or over two and a half months before the invasion of Iraq.
And yet, even in the worst of these photos, you never see a single gun, not even so much as a pea shooter. In fact, many of the tools found on the Mavi Marmara are commonly found on virtually any ship. Or did the Israelis reasonably think that repairs could be made to the ship using Nerf power tools?
The picture above is of a pile of bullet-proof vests, which only the IDF can possibly construe as a weapon. And, even considering Israel's legendary powers of restraint and forbearance, can anyone really blame the peace activists of the flotilla for wanting a bit of protection?
Well, actually, we can't blame them for belligerently wanting to protect themselves from automatic weapons fire because that picture of the vests was taken on Feb 7, 2006. Ironically, if those poor people actually had them, 19 of them wouldn't be dead and many of the 60 injuries could've been prevented.
Winston Smith is alive and well and has converted to Judaism. Or is that anti-Semitic of me to mention?
I'd recommend going to the photoset before it gets washed away for good in a tide of ridicule. (Note: Be sure to check hypervigilant, pro-Israel bozo ocschwar's comments on this photoset. His contortion of logic and the facts promises a stunning career in the GOP or a pro-Israel lobby.)
