Arab ‘Peace Activists’ Attack, Beat, Stab, And Shoot Israeli Troops

May 31, 2010

The world is in an uproar over Israel’s “massacre” of peace activists who only wanted to bring humanitarian aid to Gaza.

The fact that they ignored repeated Israeli warnings that every ship going to Gaza would be subject to boarding for inspection, and the fact that the “peace activists” immediately attacked, beat, stabbed, and shot Israeli soldiers in a completely unprovoked manner, is a trifle to be ignored.

This violence from “peace activists” came after the IDF broadcast a rather reasonable message to the flotilla.

Joshua Pundit has a good write-up of what occured, along with the videos to document the truth:

Videos:10 Dead As IDF Ambushed By Gaza Flotilla ‘Peace’ Activists

When IDF soldiers attempted to peacefully stop a Turkish-backed flotilla attempting to break the Gaza blockade, they were subjected to a vicious assault, as the above videos show. The “peace activists” were warned that they were in a closed military zone, and there’s no reason they could not have followed the Israeli ships to Ashdod where the supplies they intended to deliver would have been searched for weapons and then trucked to Gaza.

That of course was not their intention. What they wanted was a confrontation.

The IDF had previously been ordered by the commander of this operation to conduct themselves professionally in the face of what was expected to be provocation in the form of spitting, cursing, and perhaps a small amount of physical resistance.

What happened instead is that they ran into a brutal, planned ambush:

Officials estimated that passengers will show slight resistance, and possibly minor violence; for that reason, the operation’s commander decided to bring the helicopter directly above the top deck. The first rope that soldiers used in order to descend down to the ship was wrested away by activists, most of them Turks, and tied to an antenna with the hopes of bringing the chopper down. However, Flotilla 13 fighters decided to carry on.

Navy commandos slid down to the vessel one by one, yet then the unexpected occurred: The passengers that awaited them on the deck pulled out bats, clubs, and slingshots with glass marbles, assaulting each soldier as he disembarked. The fighters were nabbed one by one and were beaten up badly, yet they attempted to fight back.

However, to their misfortune, they were only equipped with paintball rifles used to disperse minor protests, such as the ones held in Bilin. The paintballs obviously made no impression on the activists, who kept on beating the troops up and even attempted to wrest away their weapons. {…}

The forces hurled stun grenades, yet the rioters on the top deck, whose number swelled up to 30 by that time, kept on beating up about 30 commandos who kept gliding their way one by one from the helicopter. At one point, the attackers nabbed one commando, wrested away his handgun, and threw him down from the top deck to the lower deck, 30 feet below. The soldier sustained a serious head wound and lost his consciousness.

Only after this injury did Flotilla 13 troops ask for permission to use live fire. The commander approved it: You can go ahead and fire. The soldiers pulled out their handguns and started shooting at the rioters’ legs, a move that ultimately neutralized them. Meanwhile, the rioters started to fire back at the commandoes.

“I saw the tip of a rifle sticking out of the stairwell,” one commando said. “He fired at us and we fired back. We didn’t see if we hit him. We looked for him later but couldn’t find him.” Two soldiers sustained gunshot wounds to their knee and stomach after rioters apparently fired at them using guns wrested away from troops.

As the above videos show, the so-called peace activists attacked the IDF soldiers with guns, knives, firebombs and other improvised weapons.From what was discovered on board in terms of weaponry, it’s obvious this was planned in advance.

Two Israeli soldiers sustained gunshot wounds, one was stabbed and a number of them sustained serious injuries at the hands of the ‘activists’. Ten of them were killed, and after what happened, I’m surprised it wasn’t more.

The Israelis couldn’t be more in the right in this situation.  But that doesn’t stop the Islamic world from erupting in violent outrage, or the United Nations and European Union making statements denouncing the Israelis.

Over this completely staged act of violence by activists against the IDF, the Middle East is on the brink of war as Muslim demagogues fan the flames of race-hatred.

We live in an age when having the truth on your side – no matter how well documented your proof that you have the truth might be – is nearly irrelevant.

The beast is coming.  And a cheering world will joyfully receive his lies.
