A few choice quotes:
"Everything must be done to prevent another incident of this kind,"
"All concerned should act with a sense of care and responsibility, and in accordance with international law."
Why did you allow the first incident? Why did you not send diplomats to stop the launch of the flotilla? Why did you fail to send international forces to turn those boats back?
International law says that Israel has a right to enforce a blockade against her belligerent enemies. Sending that flotilla was an act of provocation, by design; the obvious intent was to obtain a propaganda advantage against Israel. Israel warned the flotilla, directing them to turn back or divert to a port for inspection. Instead of complying, the provocateurs refused to divert and persisted in their attempt to break the blockade.
The Secretary General's office has a transcript, which I have gleaned for these quotes.
At this sensitive time, it is essential to avoid provocations.
It was essential to avoid provocations at the time of the flotilla's launching. You stood by wringing your hands.
This tragedy only highlights the serious underlying problem. The long-running closure imposed on the Gaza Strip is counter-productive, unsustainable and wrong. It punishes innocent civilians. It must be lifted by the Israeli authorities immediately.
Israel's blockade is not the problem. The problem is Islam's demonic demand for politicide & genocide. Islam will never tolerate the existence of Israel. Her recovery of a tiny fragment of her ancient patrimony proves Allah to be an impotent idol. No Muslim can accept that. That blockade is the only tool Israel has to slow the flow of weapons and the raw materials for making them, into Gaza.
Speaking more broadly, we must advance the proximity talks facilitated by the United States. Despite the latest developments, it is vital for the talks to continue.
No amount of talking will solve the basic problem: Islamic intolerance and aggression. There are only two possible solutions, choose one.
- Break the faith of the Muslims, cause them to abandon Islam.
- Move them beyond rocket range of Israel. Hell might be far enough.
This week's events underscore the urgency of real progress in the Middle East peace process. I commend President Abbas's courageous decision to continue, and Arab partners for their flexibility.
Courageous decision to do what? To make outrageous, escalating demands without ever meeting any of Fallestine's existing commitments. They still inculcate hatred in their children. They still broadcast incitement in their mass media. They still glorify terrorists. The only thing any reasonable person has to say to them is "go to Hell". As long as they want genocide and politicide, there will be no peace.
Intelligent and rational people look beneath the surface, for the actual roots of this existential conflict. Those roots are in Islam's cannon of scripture, tradition & exegeses.
- Sahih Bukhari 4.53.392
- Sunan Abu Dawud 14.2477
- Sahih Muslim 41.6985
Allah promised the Muslims that he would give them dominion over the world. He promised victory. He promised them a 2:1 kill ratio, that they would overcome armies twice their size. Israel's continued existence after several existential attacks proves Allah to be an impotent idol. That is something Muslims can not tolerate. They can never allow Israel to live in peace no matter what concessions she might make.
Allah commanded Muslims to conquer and subjugate the entire world. he threatened them with eternal damnation if they refuse. He promised them eternal bliss in the celestial bordello if they make the effort.
The feeble minded mental midgets we elected to bring peace to the world, keep this nation safe, and those Israel elected to keep her safe are incapable of connecting the data points and discovering the obvious conclusion: that peace is impossible so long as Muslims believe in and attempt to implement Allah's commandments.
As Secretary-General, I stand ready to take any necessary action, and will continue my personal engagement to contribute to a resolution of the conflict.
Memri has a video clip of a pep rally aboard the flotilla. The terrorists were chanting a reminder of the conquest of Khaibar. At the end of the clip, one woman declares that they will have one of two good outcomes: martyrdom or Gaza.
Bare Naked Islam has a slide show of weapons taken from militants on the flotilla please take a close look at it and read the accompanying text. This video, which I found in that same post, shows the terrorists preparing to receive the Israeli boarding party. Note the gas masks, rods and slingshots.
Another post at BNI has a video of the attack.
This one is mainly audio & sub titles.
Another BNI post has video of the attack. If you have any respect for Obama, Clinton & Moon after watching this, you are morally defective; the world would be better off without you.
The U.N. is part of the problem, not part of the solution; we need to Quit the U.N. Get the U.S.A. out of the U.N. and vice versa!!!
