As international outrage spreads at the Israeli elite commando attack on an unarmed humanitarian convey in the middle of the night on international waters, Israel is desperately trying to rebrand the incident as one of self-defence. It is nothing new for Israel, and other aggressive powers, to smear their victims as perpetrators. After all, unjustifiable murder is too jarring to stomach.
Yet, Amnesty International released a statement about Israel’s excessive use of force, further stating that Israel’s version of events begs credibility. Former Archbishop Desmond Tutu proclaimed the actions of Israel as “completely inexcusable”. According to Craig Murray, specialist on maritime law, “To attack a foreign flagged vessel in international waters is illegal.”
Deported activists tell a horrifying story of the use of electric shock, live ammunition, smoke bombs, gas canisters, beatings, and seizure of all evidence on cameras. Greek activist Michalis Grigoropoulos said, “They took us hostage, pointing guns at our heads…There was absolutely nothing we could do.” A Turkish woman, with her 1 year old baby, recalls “The ship turned into a lake of blood.”
Later today I will post the transcript I am listening to on events that occurred from a released activist. The details she is giving are shocking. But back to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and their extreme measures to de-legitimize the efforts of those who have been willing to be martyred to further the cause of the Palestinian people.
Also, remember the control they tried to have over the media access to the Gazan holocaust, this situation is no different. They seized all imagery and equipment from the activists and are in full control of every image the world sees. In some, what are seen only as long sticks, are highlighted as being metal bars. No one knows the truth! Certainly the words of Israel cannot be trusted.
ONE MORE THOUGHT TO TAKE WITH YOU ~ If they have lied to us about so very many things, such as Gaza and the weapons they dropped on helpless people, been proven false by report after report, agency after agency; so many lies over the infestation and theft of Gaza; their denials of having nuclear capability for decades; their involvement in the creation of the bombs that blew Hiroshima and Nagasaki; their well known participation in the black world of white slavery; the theft and sale of body parts, and so many other delicate matters, who is to say they have not lied about other even more important matters ~ such as the events of the last world wars, focusing on WW2.
Some of the things we learned in kindergaarten are truths that prove themselves again and again. What is that expression? "Once a liar always a liar?" Think about it.
The following is a repost, due to the amazing hard work of one Ibn Kafka. He has taken the liberty of translating the original post from French into English.
On the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Flickr page, the pictures of the so-called weapons seized on the ships taking part in the Gaza Freedom Flotilla provide ample evidence of the deviousness of those darned anti-semitic terrorists. Be forewarned: the following pictures are not for the faint-hearted.

Another anti-semitic commentator spews his hateful bile:
Hi. Just to confirm that the EXIF metadata points to this photo being taken in 2006:

Finally, the smoking gun as it were:
Exhibit H: What exactly is it? A potato peeler?
If all this hard evidence isn’t enough to convince you of the legitimacy of the Israeli action, I rest my case.
PS: Hurry up visiting that Flickr page, as I fear that some photos might be withdrawn soon…
