It’s interesting how no one intercepts and seizes the shipments to Israel of bombs, precursor chemicals for WMD, machine guns, missiles, rocket launchers, F15/16 fighter bombers, helicopter gunships, nuclear powered submarines, cluster bombs etc which are estimated at over US $5 billion every year.

@CharlesParisFR: Israel obtains “munitions”???? Munitions?
And they don’t use them against civilians, noooooooo, never!

The hypocracy never ceases to amaze me.

Israel has killed far more civilians than Hamas and Hezbollah combined, and they torture civilians in jails, and all of this is recorded and verified by many independant international agencies as well as Israeli agencies, maybe you should read your history and watch the news instead of allowing yourself to be brainwashed, oh also while you’re at it, take an intensive arithmetic course so you can add up the dead.

Second fact Israel does not use nuclear powered subs. They use diesel electric subs and have nuclear weapons on two of those subs with targeting for Tehran.

In 3 blood soaked weeks over Christmas 2008/9 the IDF brutally killed over 300 Palestinian children under the age of sixteen as documented by the UNHRC. As yet no one has been indicted and brought to trial for this alleged war crime.

@ Tbell; stop making up crap to see yourself in print; if you can’t add anything beyond ‘palestinian propaganda’ to the discussion, then you add no value.

Israel is a sovereign nation – end of story – with a right to defend itself. Hamas and Hezbollah are terrorist organizations intent on killing civilians and Israel’s destruction..
Peace will only come to this region if the terror organizations, including Iran, accept Israel as a nation and a neighbor – something they refuse to do. Until such time, Israel will continue to do what it must to protect the only Democracy in the ME..

@kyleD
by far the largest killer (past year) of palestinians is Sryia, the 2nd largest is palestinians themselves. IDF is a distant third. And even then Hamas calls those youths killed by ISrael “involuntary martyrs” ; which started when they were used by terrorists as human shields in 2008/09 as @Tbellchambers knows.

But you only have an issue when Israel kills palestinians, hypocritical don’t you think? definitely an arab mindset and not a Western based one.

@KarimNNAss
I stand by what I wrote. Israel does not TARGET civilians. When Palestinians fire rockets into Israeli cities to achieve the maximum civilian damage, while hiding in schools and hospitals, they are treating their own people as hostages. When Hamas and Hizbullah leave their dream world and finally come to grips with the reality that Israel is here to stay, perhaps then you will see peace….the sort of peace where Palestinian school children will not be attending classes with rockets stored in the school’s basement.

Why not confront the core dilemma the Israeli’s face? They insist on a Jewish homeland and are never far from the idea of a greater and greater Israel. If one of their core constituencies are orthodox Jews – never believe a word about anything unless it appears in the Talmud – what can they expect but see the same attitude reflected in the neighborhood? You could call that religious/nationalist pathology, its infectious, and the strain isn’t quite dead. Hitler and the Third Reich caught the same disease and were almost a caricature of it.

I’m trying to read Josephus and the run up to the sack of Jerusalem by Titus. Judea was a country imploding long before the Romans appeared. There doesn’t appear to be a single city in a much larger Jewish territory then than now, that wasn’t raped, pillaged and their populations exterminated, men, women and children by the Jews themselves even before the appearance of Pompeii – and I’m only about 6 pages into the 230 plus devoted to that episode. All the Romans did was put the gutted creature out of it’s misery and shut down the home office.

The Romans were a lot more sensible than the lot of them. If you sit on the major corridor connecting two large parts of a global empire – you’re going to get run over by the trucking. They have been run over by global and regional trucking so many times in their legendary past it’s the national ethic now. A genuine religion – shed of its territorial ambitions, doesn’t need a homeland. All a territory brings is a greater chance to inbreed. If you are Jewish and want to live with security – picking another place on the earth – any other place on the earth – is likely to grant you that far easier than that miserable piece of geography. Bone headed is what bone headed does.

If you don’t believe me – read it for yourself! BTW – there are about five or six Cleopatras of the Ptolemaic line, not just the last one with the Asp. They are very hard to keep track of and Josephus has mentioned one of them so far. I think she’s the one who had her hands chopped off, had her teeth pulled out before her sister had her beheaded. Those girls fought nasty. And they played with soldiers and civilians lives like they were toys. They thought they were Goddesses and their Husbands were Gods.

I’m not sure there is much of a difference between thinking your divine rather than thinking you’re one rung down from divinity. The bloodshed seems to be the same.

I am not picking sides here but your argument holds no water. Israel has used its weapons to bomb people in peaceful demonstrations, i.e a funeral procession. Why is it right and just for Israel to bomb indiscriminately in retaliation but not right for Lebanese to bomb Israelis in retaliation?
Yes they do not do it randomly because the world allows them to actually plan and target innocent people and children..which is worse?

It is a sad situation, and there isn’t an easy fix. But taking money out of my paycheck and sending to Israel isn’t going to help.

I’m guessing that if those were Boeing or Aerojet Rocketdyne products, nobody would say jack about that shipment. Bad for business, and bad for the business of re-election on both sides of the aisle.

The US, Israel, Russia, France, China, and many other countries all ship weapons. Is Iran guilt of being like them?

I read “……. they were shipped first to Iraq and then towards Sudan. Had they reached the African coast, they would have probably been smuggled overland through Egypt to Gaza, he said” and I am shocked to read “PROBABLY”. Does this warrant the headline “Gaza-Bound Rocket Shipment”?

Syria and Iran have every right to manufacture, sell, and ship conventional weapons to anyone they want. Why is this news? …… The boarding of the ship and the reporting in the news media is part of Netanyahu’s attempt to demonize Iran and throw another wrench into the process of reconciliation with the West.

@Kenradke12 – The problem is that Israel and the Jews – all of them whether they are in Israel or even agree with its policies tend to be seen as the same thing. It’s the state that is worse than the people it claims to defend. The Israeli right wing is like right wings everywhere. They cut out any descent. And rock bottom of all this controversy is who may have to relinquish real estate. Liberals tend to have a time time at exclusion. The right wings everywhere always seem to know how to do that right at the start. People don’t really fight wars most of the time over religious issues. They fight over the incomes, rights and resources that religious affiliation gains for them. It seems that most people who claim a religious affiliation do so without understanding all that much about them anyway. The idea of manifest destiny still lives in some hearts and minds in Israel. If that is being echoed by the other side they will live in a meat grinder forever. The Israelis don’t have the enormous natural resources the rest of the region has and the world would rather eat and go about their normal business than put up with too much sectarian squabbling. The Israelis tend to want to live as a law unto themselves.

Most world religions do not claim homelands and none have been so blatantly aggressive in recent memory as the Israelis. Israel can never ignore, nor fog the issue, that its territory has grown so much larger while the Palestinians’ has grown so much smaller. They were almost evenly divided as a patchwork of discontinuous territories at the foundation and the Israeli’s have tried to expand their territory on the cheap. No amount of apologetics can hide that fact. And the UN has never recognized that Israel had the right to spoils of war. That comes out of ancient history and the Israelis are as backward looking as the Third Reich in that regard. All Israel has done effectively is create a super ghetto when all the others around the world had gone extinct.

But I read once years ago, “You become what you hate”. It didn’t say – you become what you criticize. But the issue is such a tar baby – just touching it tends to suck one in without hope of resolution.

Its enough to make one want to “get religion” and just as quickly try to get away from the idiocy of it all.

Oh, come, oh, come, our Lord of might,
Who to your tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times gave holy law,
In cloud and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Oh, come O Rod of Jesse’s stem,
From ev’ry foe deliver them
That trust your mighty pow’r to save;
Bring them in vict’ry through the grave.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Oh, come, O Key of David, come,
And open wide our heav’nly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Oh, come, our Dayspring from on high,
And cheer us by your drawing nigh,
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Oh, come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Oh, bid our sad divisions cease,
And be yourself our King of Peace.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

Amen!

Something very fishy here. The timing is too perfect; Bibi is currently in the USA, working the federal lawmakers and the major US media like a seasoned pro.

Israel’s credibility is about at the same level as North Korea’s; this could very well have been a false flag operation, concocted and contrived by Israel and the Israel-loving US State Department.

Netanyahu knows full well that the Iranian threat is a canard; it is used as a distraction from the fact that the Israelis are building Jews-Only, government-subsidized, housing units , on stolen Arab land, at an unprecedented pace.

This bit of Israeli piracy on the high seas was timed to call attention to the non-nuclear threat that Iran supposedly poses to the nuclear-scofflaw Jewish state… this is theater, without the popcorn.

Wait you do remember that the UN ruled that Israel had the right to perform a naval blockade and was not and has not had their soldiers charged for that provocative naval incident?

As for US Liberty, Israel was at war and LBJ told them there were no US ships in the area. Please check it out , LBJ apologized for passing on bad info to the jews and he hated them. Yep LBJ was an anti-semite and he apologized ( I actually know one of LBJ’s switchboard operators.)

@new york loner- interesting yet false since there were more housing starts in West Bank under Barak (~4000) then in first 4 years of Bibi.

/so what else is false in your words?
//timing right so the week before they destroyed missile in southern Lebanon, and and again the previous month. You do relaize that IDF operations occur regularly. I grant they might have switch the raid a day or two to coincide; but there is no lack of targets with all the chaos in the middle east.
///and yet you do not comment on syria who has killed way more Palestinians in the last year than Israel. And btw Jordan has killed more palestinians that israel overall (according to Arafat no less) … silence I thought so.

Another laughably ridiculous false flag story designed to coincide with bonkers Bibi addressing the AIPAC faithful. Anything remotely anti-Iranian will do, particularly when the hired help in the US Congress are queuing up for their AIPAC paychecks.
This is the same man recently photographed shaking the hand of a wounded takfiri jihadist Syrian fighter in an Israeli hospital facility in occupied Syria. Can anyone take this clown seriously?

Your answers are obviously lies, the UN did not absolve Israel for attacking a ship with civilians in International water. I was at the UN the day the issue was brought up.

The Israeli’s attacked an American flagged ship, they machine gunned sailors in the water. There was never a single Israeli pig made to pay for the 50 plus lives. I was with LBJ when he called back the US Planes that were going to take revenge. He received huge donations from wealthy Israeli supporters to sweep the entire thing under the rug. He told me that over a ham and cheeze sandwich, in the White House.

Thanks for showing you have no facts and are trolling.
This thread outed at least two Zeroes , so worth it.

REF for blockade “In the September 2011 Palmer Report, the UN investigative committee for the 2010 Flotilla to Gaza said that the Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza is legal under international law, but that “the Panel cannot make definitive findings either of fact or law. But it can give its view.

Since then no inquiries have taken action

Absolute BS from beginning to end.

You don’t even know how to spell hypocrisy, much less know what it means. Your post demonstrates that.

In 3 blood soaked weeks over Christmas 2008/9 the IDF brutally killed over 300 Palestinian children under the age of sixteen as documented by the UNHRC. As yet no one has been indicted and brought to trial for this alleged war crime.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

That’s why you shouldn’t start wars – people get killed including civilians.

Especially when Hamas “fighters” hide behind women and children. They wave the bloody flag because they know useful id.iots like you will yap like Pavlov’s dog with no interest in the dynamics of the confrontation.

Ever notice how they NEVER attack the Israeli military, only civilians? That’s the difference between a “freedom fighter” and a civilian.

As for what happened in 2008, Hamas left Israel with no alternative. After piecemeal attempts to stop the rocket attacks on Israeli civilians failed, Hamas left Israel with no option but to attack in force. All blood, Israeli and Palestinian, is on Hamas hands.
