Maritime Media Spectacle Part Two

This week in Athens, Greece, blockade runners conducted a training session on how to thwart Israeli efforts to enforce their Gaza blockade. At the same time the Israel Navy conducted a simulation of all possible scenarios for the flotillas to run the naval blockage.

HAMSA HAMSA HAMAS

Local United Nations spokesman, Adnan Abu Hasna says that vandals broke into a camp site in the central Gaza Strip early on Monday. Tents were burned down and much of the facility damaged.

The facility was a summer camp for children in the Gaza Strip. The left-wing media would have you think that these two are in cahoots, right? The oppressed and those who keep humanity’s delicate flame closely guarded from the oppressors. Well, this is actually the second time an attack like this has happened in the last few months.


Hamas say that they have launched an investigation into the first incident. But think about it: who else could have committed such an act? Only Hamas armed personnel have the ability to carry out such behavior.

(Jumping up and down in laughable irony with my hand covering my mouth) – let me say that while Hamas investigates, no one has claimed responsibility.

Well, the United Nations aid agency stands accused by Islamic factions of corrupting Gaza’s youth with its summer program of sports, games and human rights lessons for about 250,000 children.

The UN’s competitor is none other than Hamas, which operates camps for some 100,000 children to whom they teach lessons of Islam and military-style marching.

Al-Zahar Tells It Like It Is In England

Meanwhile, in the British newspaper, The Independent, Palestinian Foreign Minister Mahmoud al-Zahar said on Monday,

“After the Mondial (World Cup) at least eight ships will come from the Gulf.” Asked whether Iranian vessels will be included, al-Zahar said, “Why not?”

He said that there would be more flotillas “than in your imagination.”

Alluding to the chance that Egypt might prevent a flotilla from the Persian Gulf passing through the Suez Canal on its way to Gaza, al-Zahar was reported as saying:

“They have the right in international law to go as the Israelis go. Egypt will never be able to stop such a campaign.”

On the question of Iranian sponsorship of the floatilla, al-Zahar said:

“I ask you about morality. Where is your morality if Iran is going to give food and drugs? What justifies preventing that?”

Al-Zahar also expressed frustration on Israel’s ignoring attempts to strike a prisoner swap deal for the release of Gilad Shalit.

He also criticized Western leaders for ignoring the Palestinian Authority elections, in which Hamas had really come out victorious. The brilliant rhetorician and insightful politician answered his own question:

“Why did the Western people boycott Hamas after the election? Because they want a new Karzai in Palestine.”

He went on and on and on:

“What is the real border of Israel? What about the occupation of Jerusalem, what about the occupation of the Golan Heights? I ask Israelis to renounce violence…I ask your country (Britain) and then the Americans to renounce violence in Afghanistan and Iraq and Pakistan and then we are going to speak about renouncing violence.”

And so it goes – just another day in the insane Middle East.
