The people in Gaza were excited about the boat of women activists making their way to them in an attempt to break the illegal siege and blockade that plagues their everyday lives. Instead, they could hear the terrifying sounds of Israeli bombs near their homes and then the news that the Women’s Boat to Gaza was intercepted by Israeli forces. What a way to end the day.
Interesting and brutal comments below on YnetNews:
And here is Jim Condit Jr.’s comment that has apparently been held up in moderation at YNetNews. Thanks for sending us your comment Jim.
“George Eini Never heard of this Egyptian expulsion of Jews. Was it by any chance done around 1948? If so, no doubt the Egyptians were cooperating with the new Israeli government that was trying to scare Jews out of ALL the countries in the Mideast to boost Israel’s population to justify the slow genocide of Palestinians now in progress before our eyes.
— God Bless Nicky Nelson — about the only one on this thread who hasn’t lost her humanity.
God Bless Jill Stein (Jewish), Green Party Candidate for President, for stating on CNN that military aid should be cut off to Israel as long as they violate the human rights of the Palestinians – and she called for a cut off of military aid to ALL countries engaged in Human Rights Violations.
Israel and Jewish Agents in the US Government DID 9-11. Wake the heck up! See TargetFreedomUSA.com, 9-11/false flag section, Christopher Bollyn’s work and speeches “Solving 9-11”, and Barbara Honeggers excellent presentation on Youtube “Behind the Smoke Curtain”, especially the first 30 minutes. — And by the way, the last way to become “famous” is at a pro-Palestinian rally — that’s a one way ticket to total oblivion via Big Media Censorship.
The censorship of the Woman’s Flotilla now near Palestine, with all those prominent women on it — is TOTAL PROOF of the organized Jewish Shadow Government’s control of the Big Media in the USA. Just like the censorship of Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty in 1967 — total blackout by the treasonous Jews who own the BIg Media in the US.
We see in real time now why such Jewish leaders have gotten Jews kicked out of countries over 100 times in the last 1000 years.
For the good of the world, the Jill Stein faction of Jews must this round defeat the Netanyahu faction of Jews.”
I’ll say it again, the comments here are unbelievably brutal and hateful.
1) Why do Israelis have a problem with these women going to Gaza to see and support the Palestinians?
2) If Gaza is not under siege as many of you proclaim, then why have these peace activists been stopped by Israeli forces?
3) Why are people here saying they want these peace activists dead? Why? It makes no sense at all. Why would anybody hate these women they don’t even know and who have done nothing to hurt anybody?
Hundreds of children are bombed by Russian and Syrian air strikes daily in Aleppo and Homs where more than half the casualties are children but would these idiot women care a hoot about children being killed in Syria not a dam they could care less
With all the horrible things going on in the world you mentally deprived elitists concentrate on Israel …..so called progressives my a… , you are just a bunch of right wingers and too stupid to realize it …..
Unfortunately, the people of Gaza are being occupied and persecuted by their leadership. This is just a publicity stunt. If they are so concerned, their “help” can be unloaded in Ashdod and sent from there. It is a shame you had to resort to name calling.
The world caught up with the war criminal state of Israel a long while ago, your lies have been exposed and so have your war criminal acts against the Palestinians. “war criminals” is a statement of fact not name calling.
They are assuming that the IDF will not kill them because they are unarmed women. This is a big mistake, the IDF will murder them indiscriminately and they will do so with great relish as befitting an armed force from a war criminal state.
Harvey Garfield – Invaded Palestinian land, occupied that land by force, mass murder of innocent women and children, refusal of right of return for refugees driven out by Israeli aggression, collective punishment, apartheid wall, illegal occupation of East Jerusalem, targeting civilians, piracy against peace workers, I could go on but there are enough war crimes in that lot to be going on with.
Terry Kelly why u not on a boat or doing something for a worthwhile cause like going to Syria where they really need help. Not just shooting your ridiculous statements look at Gaza. ..see how they suffering!!!!!! Suffering is refugees without food roof over their heads
Wow, these comments depict the brainwashed citizens of the apartheid welfare “state” of Israel and their continued propaganda campaigns to cover up their crimes against humanity and the continued stealing of land that does not belong to them while they murder innocent men, women and children. Shame on all of you. You will one day see that the Zionist regime does not care about you either; you will be thrown under the bus the minute it is advantageous to do so.
Very sad state of affairs at this point. Keep those brave women safe and shed light on Israel’s crimes and continued injustice.
We are all part of the human race, and we should all come together and stand up against the tyranny of all of our governments. It does not matter what religion or race you are, peace should be the goal for the next generation. Americans are waking up to this fraud.
Nicky Nelson nobody here is against truth or justice, what we are against is the continued stupidity of those on the far left…you do realize there have been no Jews in gaza in any shape since the year 2005…in fact when they pulled out those brilliant gazans destroyed all of the advanced technology left behind after the withdrawal…since 2005 had gaza been run by decent human beings they would have a working economy among other things…they have received billions in aid since that time and before…these funds have been proven to be given to Hamas in gaza…quick question…where did it a…See More
Nicky Nelson: Israel did 9/11?? Thank you for proving that many Ron Paul supporters are sick Antisemites. Now give the USA back to the Indians and the Mexicans as well as the Hawaiians and Eskimos. Bigoted, racist hypocrite.
Americans woke up a while ago to the realisation that the ideology that took down the twin towers is the same as the one that rules over Gaza which in turn is the same as the one that beheads captives in Syria and Iraq .
No amount of ‘feminist washing’ of Palestinian terror groups will dissuade Israel from safeguarding its citizens.
Jared Henderson It’s not about right or left and no, people in Gaza do not think Israel is a moral army, that is a ridiculous statement. It is obvious you have been brainwashed by your brutal and terroristic government.
There are freedom fighters in all countries going up against thier tryanical governments in an attempt to stop these illegal wars based on lies, I just wish there were more in Israel and the U.S., it could make a difference, in fact, it is the only thing that will make a difference. There is power in numbers my friend.
Benjamin Bloom Israel’s fingerprints are all over 9-11 and many Americans know this. The fact that our media is owned and controlled by Jews and Zionists has not stopped the truth from coming out. This information is in the public domain for all to see. TRUTH, IT’S THE NEW HATE SPEECH.
Hahahahahaha my tyrannical government? I’m Canadian dear we are far from tyrannical lmao…I just call the facts for what they are, it’s certainly not my fault your preconceptions don’t allow you to accurately process information from both sides before making a decision
(It’s funny I used to be super pro Palestinian…then I went to Israel more than once…also read up on the conflict so please try and tell me someone who has been there seen how it actually is how wrong I am, please oh please
George Eini I am not proud of how my country was started, on the blood of the native people, but you don’t see us continue to slaughter Mexicans and Indians to steal even more land on a daily basis, while attempting to demonize them and lie about our victims.
To be honest, the American people have about zero control over what our government does in our name and I know that people around the world are in the same boat.
It is just disturbing to not see more normal everyday people speakinig truth and trying to get control back.
None of us benefit from continued war, only the rich and the military industrial complex and their benefactors do.
“We send the poor and working people from our country to kill the poor and working people in other countries to make the rich, richer.” – Iraqi Veterans Against the War
Nicky Nelson, sigh. Well you sounded good until you clarified where you were in fact coming from. That is the trouble with Facebook, you get one snippet and it sounds like someone is advocating universal brotherhood. Then he flips around and starts babbling about how “the Zionists” were “behind” 9/11 and control the world. Schizophrenia illustrated. Seek help, there are medications for this condition available today.
Nicky Nelson OMG you’re an idiot. Now blaming the Jews for 911. Just another stupid antisemite. Any idea how many jews died in those buildings you dummy. Yeah Jews blew up the building to kill themselves.
Yeah the world has 7 billion people and 14 mill jews, but those 14 million control everything. Idiot
Don’t forget to open your moth when you change feet.
Craig J. Bolton There are medications for this? You mean blindfolds I think.
One of the things that I don’t understand is when Israelis / Jews / Zionists accuse people of being antisemetic when they are just people who are speaking truth.
Why is it peace activists would hate Jews and no other race or religion? Do you honestly think that most people go around hating people or scolding people for no reason? There is a disconnect there obviously.
Bad behaviour, action and injustice, especially murder, leads to bad feelings. Again, it’s not rocket science, it is a normal reaction for people with compassion and empathy for other human beings, and more specifically victims of oppression.
LOL Remove blockade?? When there was no blockade your Hamas friends were sending suicide bombers to Israel. Many Gazans were also allowed to work in Israel and this had to be discontinued. For Antisemites like you, Jewish life is cheap.
their whole intention is to get stopped by Israel to grab headlines. they have no intention of arriving in gaza. let them reach gaza. what will happen when they arrive there. how will hamas treat them. my guess is they will not be welcomed as the heroes they thik they are. let them get a taste of hamas. how will they return after hamas confiscates their boat? the best thing the IDF could do is to let them arrive in gaza.
Nicky Nelson LOL an Antisemitic nutcase who blames Israel for 9/11 is preaching morality to the Jews. When your Hamas friends had an Airport they were sending suicide bombers to Israel. For Antisemites like you Jewish life is cheap. Bigot.
Terry Kelly you didn’t answer my question. What is the difference between Israeli soldiers and any other soldier of any other country. Soldiers everywhere kill people. That is what they are trained to do. So what is the difference?
Confiscating other people’s property is not legal or moral, so not sure what your point is. If there is no blockade, then why is Israel going to intercept this vessel? Israel should mind its own business and stop stealing things and land that does not belong to them. Until that time comes, there will be no peace. It’s not rocket science and I hope you all know this.
Nicky Nelson Aiding Hamas, which is shooting missiles as us, is not legal either. The minimum is that they should pay for their attempt by finanical loss. If our government had some spine a bit of jail time wouldn’t hurt either.
Nicky Nelson the Floptilla failed just like every other one. So, tonight, these poor excuses for women will find themselves in Ashdod, Israel being prepared to be deported. So ends their futile and uneventful Mediterranean cruise.
Is there a reason why they didn’t take their humanitarian activist butts to Syria? The people in Aleppo could definitely use some help don’t you think? I know there’s no Israelis to blame for that devastation, bombing, murder, rape and starvation but they sure could use a helping hand from these “brave” women.
Why not make a proper PR stunt and let them dig their own tunnel from Sderot into Gaza ? you can make a reality show from it ; “chicks with spades” or “dig this ! Israel” or “moving mountains to give meaning (to ourselves)” I will watch it… (contact me for further info)
Brave would be to enter via Egypt or even braver protest in Istanboul.against the blockade of free thought…..Do you really think Israel would repeat the mistakes they made with the Marmara terrorists ? they will never board the ships.. they will just tow them into the harbour and another 150.000 Euro will be wasted for the 5 minutes fame of salon heroes….you think they are brave ? good for you you are the right audience for them….
Egypt has a blockade as well, yet they are only focusing on Israel. Maybe because they know el sisi will won’t be as accomadating as Israel. I wonder if they realize how ridiculous they look in light of what is going on in Syria.
Its just an anti-Israel provocation. Everyone knows that massive arms WOULD be transported to Gaza via the sea with the purpose of being launched at Israeli communities. Its ONLY LOGICAL that our government is going to do things that PROTECT the civilian population. What these naive women are doing is childish and ignorant.
In reality Egypt also can do more it’s far from Cairo Ought not be a danger food supplies and clean water .
World Vision and other charities got duped as Hamas used aid for belligerancy tunnels its innate hate .
Have not the guts to help in Aleppo would rather
face the IDF than the Ba’ath Torturers and their Allies
just watching the video. she say the flottile is peacefull… breacking and endering israels watter without allowed is that peacefull? she do that in iran ,the boot would be blowed out of sea without a word
Mark Sherry They will be treated like anyone, male of female, who tries this stupidity. Remeber Israel is fairly gender neutral. They might find some females as part of the Israelie people directing them to an Israeli port. If they choose to remain peaceful, they will be treated with respect and the good they are trying to deliver – if they have any – will be safely delivered to Gaza, as always.
Mark Sherry The only risk these silly women have is the wasting of everyone’s time and money in a pointless exercise. There would have been no risk to life on the Marmara either had there not been a brutal attack on a naval commando first. But of course you’re blind and deaf to anything but your own anti Israel agenda. If you respected women, you would be a heck of a lot more reluctant to defend their oppressing “masters.”
Rebecca Johnstone – Read some of the talkbacks. Some sduggest they go to Aleppo to get bombed. Others suggest rape or slavery would be good for them. Women are more than body parts to be used. Many posters seem to disagree with that concept.
Glenda Pogorelsky – This group of women are trying to lift a siege. They probably will not be successful. but they will highlight the brutal nature of siege. The siege is warfare on the people of Gaza. Even a peacefull attempt to raise a siege is an act of war. But the world will still see what happens, even is they are suddenly dissappeared. And then others will try. Thus far, the Siege of Gaza is a little younger than the Siege of Troy.
The death toll in Gaza from the siege in the past year is 29.
Mark Sherry What ‘siege’? There is an embargo in place, not a siege. Suggest you look up the difference in a dictionary. The embargo is due to Hamas’ insistence that the entire Jewish nation be eliminated. Sorry, kiddo, but that’s not on the cards anymore.
Mark Sherry You totally misinterpret…no one suggests they go to Aleppo to get bombed…we only point out that there are more serious issues if they were really humanitarian. No one suggests that rape and slavery would be good for them, only that they will be treated much better in Israel than in Gaza…GET A LIFE>
Talking about Russia…. never seen Ms McWhatsits protesting outside the Russian Embassy against their merciless bombing in Syria: women, children buried under the rubble and not a squeak out of these good women.
Glenda Pogorelsky …Ahhh, mo fraochUn, a stor…and it was a mere six years later that the Brits handed the keys to the kingdom, or at least Beggars Bush barracks to Irish Add to dictionary forces who later were defeated by the Oglaigh na hEireann so WOOOOOHOOOOOOO.
Michelle Moshelian …A better question might be is why isn’t Israel who always bragging about how humanitarian they are by flying off to far flung places where they are not wanted and get in the way of relief efforts (hmmmm…”publicity seekers”) not doing anything to help their starving neighbours. or accepting refugees.
I mean, with $4,000,000,000.00/year for ten years from the USA, surely you can do some good rather than boast about taking out a small enemy position on the occupied Golan.
Toirmeasc Buchaill Bataí agus clocha…… You may well talk about Israeli efforts to help in worldwide offers. So where were you all when 10 million people were being murdered by the Nazis? May I answer that: supporting them. You have nothing to be proud of.
We on the other hand are proud of the fact that half of today’s modern medical technology – for the benefit of all of mankind – is developed in Israel And for caring for severely wounded Syrians while their own brothers are hacking and gassing them to death.
You have a peculiar mindset, but Jews are only too familiar with it. We’ve learned to sniff it from a long distance.
I wasn’t born when 14,000,000 people were killed by the Nazis but my father, who was a first generation Irish-American was in the U.S.Army running towards the Nazis while your peeps were waving hi to him as they ran past going the other way.
My peculiar mindset is for peace with justice and equality while your mindset just celebrated a man who introduced nukes to the region, was a friend of the apartheid South Africa, and supported the continued occupation and supported Sharon’s settlement building and then Netanyahu’s…and rubber stamped the Qana massacre.
But I get it. Many Jewish people have always hated the Irish. and had to invent the Limerick pogrom to demean us as anti-Semites. But that’s OK. We are used to it and knew that Israel would apologize someday for the fabrication…and so they did.
Well, I guess when you can’t afford a proper Mediterranean cruise this is your best option.
Ho hum…just another ship of fools.
I guess they’re humanity doesn’t extend to the poor people of Syria who are being slaughtered, starved, raped and forced to flee their homes but there’s no Jews involved in that real devastation so who cares…right Ms. Maguire?
Marmara flotilla members of an extremist group that were…I.H.H.,Hamas,Al QUEDA.. the militant Palestinian movement that controls Gaza but to other violent factions, including Al Qaeda supports the terror organization They brought with them in advance knives, steel rods, other weapons.
Mark Sherry You have just failed to mention some crucial facts…
1. In the former flotilla there were several ships and not just one.
2. The 9 that were killed belonged to a Turkish terror organization financed by Erdogan, of course not officially.
3. The ship that the 9 dead was on it included weapon, that straight after lending on the beach of Ashdot has been adduced to the press.Again, somebody that does not let reality (not the show) come between him and the hate (or envy) of Israel.
Janet Davies Siegel – They boarded firing paint guns. Ever taken a paint gun pellet to the face? They can kill and blind. There was no peaceful intent by the IDF. If they had been plainclothes and undercover, it would have been classed as piracy. Andd the IDF attacked on the high seas, not even in Gazan waters.
Mark Sherry Iron broomsticks, eh? There was no peaceful intent by the people on that flotilla either. Still, why are we not seeing you nitpicking all over the Russian press? Their fighter jets are doing an absolutely outstanding job of burying small innocent babies and children in mangled concrete.
mayread Maguire has tried to breach the blockade before, people like her never learn, insanity is defined as trying the same thing again and again each time expecting a different outcome.No fight will be needed, just block their direction, in the open seas a shot across the bow is plenty of warning, of course dragging their boat to the ashdod port is also an alternative.
The vile arrogant posts on here are typical of residents of a state which uses planes, boats and tanks against people who have no Army, Navy or Air Force, that is not defence and it’s not war it is mass murder.
Why dont they break into Aleppo. Oh wait its easier to demonize Israel than to help Syrians who are being killed by muslims. Cause for some unknown reason muslims cant do wrong in the eyes of the world.
It’s very simple: a muslim killed by another one goes straight to Heaven. But if a muslim is killed by a non-muslim, this latter has to be killed together with his whole family. So, it’s more logical to sustain Gaza than Aleppo.
It’s shame that IDF doesn’t save any Syrian or Palestinian children and let them killed by war jets and bombs.The best Moral army in the world should accept syrian refugees instead of building nuclear heads for rockets and keep occupying Palestinian lands and the syrian golan .
So Claude fears an attack , and Leigh-Ann is not worried…..hmm they are in the same boat ? I do not see the fuss here..just put a dragnet around the boat and haul it into Ashdod no need to board or whatever.then moar it and let them sit there till they get out…process them evict them send a fine for illegal tresspassing confiscate the boats , sell them after a year and give the money to the terror victims….simple and human.
