Turkey wrong again: Forget a raid, Israel should have blown up fake 'humanitarian aid' flotilla ship

More from DK...

Turkey, a state infamous as the perpetrators of The Genocide Which Must Be Named, is at it again, now aiding and abetting terrorist activity then playing the victim even though caught red handed with dirty hands in the cookie jar.

We wrote long ago about Turkey’s fake and phony antics, when we urged the current administration to man up, stand on the side of facts, and unequivocally recognize the Armenian genocide instead of going along with Turkey’s play pretend games:

Every period scholar recognizes the coordinated mass murders, death marches, rape, and torture as a genocide. That is not even up for dispute anymore, despite Turkey’s lame and unconvincing attempts to whitewash this grim history.

The only question is whether the United States should be sticking its nose into Turkey’s business and if by doing so the United States is risking support from a useful ally.

Child, please. The Turks need to get over it. And I’m fully aware of how dismissive, undiplomatic, and reductive this statement is. They still need to get over it.

The truth hurts. The truth is that the Armenian genocide did happen. And the truth is that the sky is not going to fall in, Turkey’s world will not collapse, nobody is going to die, Turkey’s economy is not going to crash because the United States recognizes that genocide...

America does not bow to Turkey. Turkey does not get to decide what goes in American textbooks. And America should recognize the Armenian Genocide.

The administration diplomatically shied away, breaking Obama’s empty campaign promises to the Armenian people. Armenians learned that Obama’s word is not worth much more than a used strip of toilet tissue. Armenians who voted for Obama were duped.

The Israel-haters among us – including Turkey – are trying to dupe the American people into believing the blockade busting flotilla fleet involved in this weekend’s bloody incident was engaged in an innocent 'humanitarian' mission to deliver aid to Gaza.

Really? I mean, come on – how old are we? If you believe that, you probably believe Glee is real representation of modern American high school, and that kids routinely break out in perfectly harmonized song to release their teen angst.

Yeah, I believe that Turkish ship full of peace activists was trying to break Israel's blockade to deliver humanitarian aid to Palestinian refugees...if by 'peace activist' you mean 'anti-Semitic thug,' by 'humanitarian aid' you mean 'ammunition and armaments,' and by 'refugees' you mean 'terrorists'.

I have houseplants that were more likely to have been delivering humanitarian aid this weekend to Gaza than was the flotilla.

I don’t know if it’s sadder that Turkey is pushing this phony ‘aid delivery storyline’ or that a legion of gullible Israel hating minions have pulled out their jump-to-conclusions mats and condemned Israel for attacking these armed and dangerous ‘peace activists.’

Although I adore the unique character and cultural texture of Jewish Americans unconditionally, I am ambivalent at best on the behavior of Israel’s government. I don’t hate Israel, but I am no big fan either and will call them out.

Israel needs to stop provoking terrorists by building settlements in Palestinian territory. Also, Israel needs to understand, as it currently does not, that Americans control American foreign policy – not Israelis – and that but not for our support and power they wouldn’t have a country.

That said, Israel has a right to defend itself from the Iranian and Hamas terroristic Islamofascists who will not rest until the Jewish state is eradicated – which it will never be. Israel was absolutely right to board the flotilla, because that flotilla was not on a peace mission as lazily reported.

Anyone will an ounce of common sense can plainly see that this flotilla was on its way to deliver ramparts and armaments to Hamas and that its hostile intentions were to break a military blockade of terrorists.

As a result of this profoundly stupid and militant provocation, it should have expected a militant response -- as the good folks over at Hillary is 44 explained:

The flotilla was not a peace flotilla by any definition. It was very clear from the beginning that the embargo runners are determined to destroy Israel. Armed with the Hope that the Arabs lawyer, Barack Obama, would help them as they attempt to run a blockade in order to assist the terrorist organization Hamas, the flotilla set sail...

Ask Rhett Butler, when you run a blockade, violate an embargo, you run the risk of death and destruction.

There are times when Israel has deserved condemnation for harming American interests with its self-defeating arrogant intransigence. This is not one of those times. The flotilla is lucky it wasn’t blown to bits, which would not have been entirely inappropriate given the stakes.

There are nuclear warheads that are more peaceful that the Holocaust deniers who attacked Israeli troops when they rightfully attempted to stop the delivery of materials to Hamas warmongerers. Turkey, once again, has not a legal or moral leg to stand on, and Israel deserves American support (this time).

    Jamal, yet another insightful, considered and poignant comment...
    Thanks!

    Your comment on TURKEY'S GENOCIDE OF ARMENIANS AND GREEKS in 1915 and 1922 (seen the movie "1922" in greek subtitles? It was watched by the Haddasah Chapter and sponsored by Canadian-Greek and Canadian-Armenians. The audience was primarily Jewish, Greek and Armenian. These 3 are kindred spirits and udnerstand the terrible atrocities committed by the Turkish barbarians throughout the ages!

    Obama's lack of spine/ and resolve (not to mention the obvious--EXPERIENCE!) is disgusting as is his protection of Timmy Geithner and Larry Sexist Summers' refusal to punish the Goldman Sachs clowns of disaster finance!

    Obama should man-up gather his puny little courage and name the TURKISH GENOCIDE OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS (2 million of them) as written in Morgentau's diaries--the American Ambassador in Constantinopole (Turkish 'Istanbul;).

    The Turks are known for their brutality,b Palestinians should be treated

  • Memi 4 years ago

    ....Although Turks are well known and branded by their historical Brutality, still the Palestinians should be allowed to live in their owns homes without the Fascist State of Israel denying them their basic human rights--under Bibi Nyetanhu it has become a farce of a democracy.

    Israelis lost a wonderful chance to solve the Palestinian issue by electing this brute Neytanhu and ignoring Tzipi Livni. She would have been a great leader, and Hillary Clinton would have resolved the issue for sure. It takes guts to do this, and a tremendous amount of empathy and compassion and intelligence....Obama just doesn't have any of these talents.
    Way above the guy's "paygrade"....

    The fact that this incident occurred in international waters, against civilians, is an act of piracy under international law.

    The use of deadly force is authorized against all attackers on the high seas. That includes Israeli commandos trying to take a ship outside their territorial waters. We have laws against this kind of thing for a reason.

    The fact it was a state ordered attack implicates the Israeli leadership.

    But you are right about Turkey. But are you prepared to accept that it's the zionist government of Israel, rather than the people themselves so much?

    They're fed the same crap we are, you know.

    But the truth is coming out about racist, apartheid Israel.

    And it's going to shock American Christianity when it does.

    Kind of all goes downhill after that.

    And your proof is? NOTHING, you are a propagandist and a liar, Turkish customs already debunked that lie. Israel lies constantly and you want to believe habitual and phsycopathic liars? You are a stupid person.

    i agree that Israel is full of fascists thieving zionists liars, however the name calling and insulting will only make your argument look ignorant.

  • Tsap 4 years ago

    RSBL,

    Seek help immediately if you're head hasn't exploded already. You sound scary and unhinged, and you probably have mental issues.

    Good luck with that, and stay away from small children.

  • xexon 4 years ago

    Maybe we'll have to cut Israel's allowance?

    To make our point clear to you that we the American people do not approve of your heavy handedness with the billions in "aid" we GIVE you every year.

    For 62 years now.

    It's time you got off the nipple and go your own way, because if you're not weaned by now, you're not likely to make it anyhow.

    End US aid to Israel.

    The headline is ridiculous, this website has no credibility, this article a sham, and you are a tool. You are just as worse as the terrorist saying to blow up the ship? WTH man this is absolutely uncalled for.

  • John Frykman 4 years ago

    RBSL, why don't send your resume to the Examine? Then you could write your own column while you masturbate. You have an inflated sense of your own intellect or you wouldn't post SEVEN comments to one article. Do you inhale your own flatus, too?
